Take Action this Holiday Season and Show your Appreciation for your Medical Equipment Suppliers!

Home Blog Take Action this Holiday Season and Show your Appreciation for your Medical Equipment Suppliers!

The holidays are approaching, and that means we are nearing the end of 2020! We can all agree that 2020 was an eventful year, but we are looking forward to what 2021 will bring. As we reflect on the last year, we are even more thankful for those who have been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the home medical equipment (HME) suppliers who have ensured that you and your loved ones continued to receive the products and services you rely on, including oxygen, ventilators, and more. To end the year and show appreciation for these suppliers, we are asking you to help us in urging your governor and state health department to make HME suppliers a priority. 

In the last few weeks, there have been updates regarding the development, release, distribution of the COVID-19 vaccination. It is crucial that HME suppliers and their staff be protected so they can continue to care for patients during this time. Healing at home is more important than ever right now. Allowing those of us to heal in the comfort of our own home limits the number of people we come in contact with, opens up hospital bed availability for severe COVID-19 cases, and saves millions of dollars when calculating the cost of a hospital stay. Plus, the mental health of healing at home versus being alone in a hospital is incalculable.  

It is also known that many HME suppliers are still struggling to get necessary personal protective equipment (PPE). Sadly, we are hearing the country is producing enough masks, gowns, and other PPE, but they are not reaching the healthcare workers that need them. 

For these reasons, we ask that you reach out to your governor’s office today and urge them to include HME providers as a priority when it comes to the distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) and vaccinations. You can easily send a message to your governor. Simply click here and enter in your information, and your request will be sent to your governor’s office. Please encourage all of your co-workers, friends, and family to do the same! 

We hope you have a safe and happy holiday with your loved ones, and we look forward to continuing to help you receive accessible, quality care in 2021.
