Helping Patients During COVID-19: Home Drop-offs
Read how Absolute Medical is providing home drop-off services to patients during the COVID-19 outbreak:
Last week, we received a distress call from one of our long-term customers who was in dire need of new compression wraps. She is 82 years old and has been homebound for over 18 months. Her sister and primary caregiver was admitted to the hospital and her home health nurse was placed on restricted visits. She was in bandages and had no garments to transition into.
When we spoke with her doctor and her lymphedema therapist, our biggest fear was the recurrence of cellulitis. If this painful skin infection returned, she would need to be admitted to the hospital. After our discussion with her care team, we all agreed that the FarrowWrap Classics would be the best product for her. She still needed to decongest but out of concern for her safety and to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we decided to deliver her compression garments to her doorstep. We spoke with her over the phone to answer any additional questions she might have had. A few days later, she called to tell us how successful the compression garments were doing in managing her decongestion.
We are grateful for all of the healthcare professionals who are tirelessly working in hospitals and treating patients on the front line. Stay safe and healthy everyone. We will get through this together!
