There is one piece of equipment I would highly suggest you get if you are working home hospice. A Headlamp, the kind you can buy at home depot, walmart or Lowe's that has a head strap with a bright light. The houses you go into do not always have very good lighting and I will not even attempt to do a foley without one, otherwise you will have to have someone hold a flashlight for you. If you can see where you are going, it is easy. They are not expensive, around 10-15 dollars.
I have both a wrist cuff and an arm cuff. Sometimes the patients skin is so fragile, and they are contracted, it can be very difficult to use arm cuff, and I have damaged skin using the arm cuff. If they are shaking or I get an abnormal reading from the wrist cuff, I have my backup. We are also given a finger pulse ox machine, if they don't give you one, I have seen them at walmart for around 40. When the fingers are cold, you may get a wrong reading or it will not read at all.
