There is COVID-19 in our community right now, which means some changes to our hospitals and clinics. As always, we are there for you when you need us. With the opening of the new UI Home Solutions-Medical Supply Store, the process for ordering these consumables has changed. So there are many ways to get medical care and equipment into the hands of medical professionals and even people who provide medical care or perform a procedure themselves at home.
General purpose kits are still used primarily by healthcare professionals on a patient and include medical aids that are routinely used in multiple procedures. Common medical supplies include medical supplies (also known as disposables), diagnostic and testing materials and tools, patient monitoring devices, acute care, surgical care, home health care, diabetic supplies, electronics, and lifesaving equipment and hospital beds and furniture. Purchase medical care and healthcare equipment for home health authorities and long-term care facilities. Hospitals and other medical facilities can purchase supplies through a group purchasing organization, or negotiate directly with retailers or wholesalers, who all do a larger part of their online business.
Patients who need supplies on their own often look for them in medical care stores that sell to the public and in chains such as Walgreens, CVS, and Walmart. If you are currently procuring medical devices and home healthcare for your patient, one of the most important points is obviously a first aid kit. The new UI Home Solutions-Medical Supply Store has been opened for your medical care and work-related product needs and is conveniently located near the hospital’s main entrance. Medical care has been identified as one of the largest expenditures in the budgets of most healthcare organizations, second only to staffing.
It’s important that you document your orders for these medical supplies and devices, as proper documentation is the most important communication tool for promoting high-quality patient care.
