Gosh, let’s hope not! I have a hard enough time getting the few Medicare allows now.I tried getting extras, as I was battling C-diff and was told to get new ones as to not recontaminate, but was denied. They said that would interfere with my regular order??
Cant understand as I would have just paid out of pocket. Was advised on how to disinfect what I had with bleach.
I have a NG tube to use to relieve gas and it doubles to help strengthen the Medena
One of my Drs is now looking into a type of plastic open curette to see if that will help. You would just pull it out as soon as you get the regular catheter through the valve ,and it is washable, they say.Hopefully I get that soon. I have to intubate at least 10 times a day. Will let you all know if that works out!
I believe the medical world is beginning to see we have a problem here. But as Kim says, we are a disappearing group🥴😢
