Hurricane Season: Are your patients prepared?
Hurricane Season is here - are you and your patients prepared?
• Hurricane season in the Southeastern United States runs from June 1 through November 30, but peaks from mid-late August through September
• Hurricanes can cause massive damage to roadways, which makes it very hard to access patients
• Power outages can cause patients to not be able to charge important medical devices such as their POC's
With power outages being a common occurrence during hurricanes many patients have no way to charge medical devices. Ensuring the patients have a way to change their POC's battery and having extra battery life can help tremendously during such stressful times.
We have assembled the following kits for those in hurricane paths to be able to provide to a patient.
Please see the kits below for all of the members of the OxyGo family to help your patients keep going! We have also included a checklist to make sure patients are as prepared as they can be.
