For Home Health Nurses,
Over the past few years, I developed a list of commonly ordered medical supplies for wound care that I use in the home. The list is oriented toward Medline as they are our agency's supplier. Recently I completely updated and revised the Common Medical Supply Request Form. My main goal is to reduce confusion as to exactly which supplies are actually needed in the patient's home, per the ordered wound care. For the staff members that choose to use the PDF, they can "click" or touch each item and they can see the items on Medline.com. It is designed to help cut supply costs and improve general satisfaction with ordering supplies.
