A Fleet of Wheelchairs !

A fleet of wheelchairs

Our family enjoyed Christmas at Walt Disney World this year and I loved seeing all the handicap accessible options!  I would be walking around identifying wheelchair brands or power chair brands.  Can you tell I work in the medical equipment business!  I would point out a chair or a scooter to the kids and then every once in a while, they would say, “have you seen one like that”.  It was a great trip.  I took this picture and sent it to the staff!  I captioned it, “How many doctors orders would this take”.  That is just part of setting equipment on our patients is the paperwork required.

Come in and see what our fleet looks like at Equip Care and get your Everest and Jennings wheelchairs.  They are American Made by http://gograhamfield.com/  check them out!

Home Oxygen Safety Rules Reminder

With the cold temperatures and trying to stay warm in your home, please remember the safety rules for home oxygen.

Never smoke while using oxygen and warn visitors not to smoke near you when you are using oxygen.

Put up No-Smoking signs.  Those can be given out at our location.

Stay at least 5 feet away from open flames including lighted cigarettes, gas stoves, candles, lighted open fireplaces or other heat sources.

Do not use any flammable products like grease, oils, aerosol sprays or any petroleum based lubricants or personal hygiene products while using your oxygen.

Lastly, but not limited too…Have a fire extinguisher close by and you may wish to notify your fire department and let them know that you have oxygen in your home.
