Returning Home: What You’ll Need

Hospital and facility staffs can direct you to the types of equipment you will need to get those important supplies, whether you must have a prescription and if the equipment is generally covered by insurance.

Depending on his or her condition, following are possible supplies that your loved one could need at home:

  • Wheelchair
  • Hospital Bed
  • Walker or Cane
  • Raise Toilet Seat
  • Shower Chair or Bath Bench
  • Bedside Commode
  • Grab Bars
  • Colostomy Care Supplies
  • Oxygen
  • I-V Equipment
  • Lift Chair
  • Hoyer Lift
  • Disposable Gloves & Incontinence Briefs

You may hear the term “durable medical equipment,” which is medical equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs or hospital beds. Generally, anyone who has Medicare Part B can get durable medical equipment as long as the equipment is medically necessary.

Having everything ready in advance will help ensure that the discharge process runs more smoothly and efficiently.
