Medication and Supplies
One of the many benefits of hospice care is that the VNA will provide your loved one medication, medical equipment and supplies related to their needs.
- Hospital bed
- Over-the-bed table
- Portable commode
- Shower chair
Other supplies provided by Hospice can include:
- Incontinent supplies
- Catheter supplies
- Mouth care supplies
- Skin care lotions
- Dressings and wound care supplies
Our physicians and nurses will work with the family to determine which medical supplies and equipment the patient needs.
Hospice pays for any medications relating to the patient’s hospice diagnosis. Our doctors and nurses arrange for medications with the patient’s own pharmacy. The VNA will order medications for you, and you can get them from the pharmacy or arrange for delivery.
