Hi, my name is Trevor Hamblin and I have written this blog about industrial equipment and supplies. It's very important that business owners keep the necessary supplies and equipment on hand to run their operation efficiently. I became interested in industrial equipment and supplies after talking with my neighbor who owns his own business. I never realized how many different supplies were needed to run a business until he explained it to me. After we spoke, I started doing some research on my own and found out a lot more information. Since I believe this is important advice that every business owner should know, I wanted to write a blog about it. I hope that after learning about the industrial equipment and supplies that are needed, you'll also have a better understanding of all that's required.
If your spouse has opted for end-of-life care at home, you will undoubtedly have several adjustments to make, especially once your spouse is on life support. If you are not quite to the point where your spouse needs life support but you both know that you want to be at home until the very end, it can be done. It does take extra money, and some health insurance programs and Medicare generally do not cover this. Still, if you are going to do this eventually, here is how to make it happen.
Make Room in a Lower Room of the House
Most people who select to spend their remaining days on life support at home do so by making room and designating a downstairs room for this purpose. You will need to clear enough room for the hospital bed for your spouse, as well as the equipment that will monitor your spouse's vitals and deliver IV fluids and medicines, if applicable. There will be several electrical remodels on your home in this particular room as well since a life support system requires more than just an outlet in the wall.
Installation for Life Support Systems
Next, a medical electrician will visit your home and install all the wiring and cables for a life support system in the room you have chosen. This typically includes a plaque behind the bed, on the wall, where all of the necessary machines can plug in and receive oxygen, pump air into your spouse's lungs, deliver nutrition via a nasogastric tube (if needed) and/or ventilate your spouse. Additionally, several hoses and tubes need to run inside the wall and down into the basement to connect to the fuse box and the oxygen tanks or other machines used to keep your spouse alive.
Moving Your Spouse Into the Room
Once all of these systems and machines have been brought to the house and are fully connected and ready to go, your spouse can come home from the hospital or nursing home and stay in that room. Visiting nurses will frequent your home, connect and hook up all of your spouse's machines, and then keep diligent care of your spouse until he or she has clearly passed away. Meanwhile, you can be there and present for your spouse and never have to worry about him or her alone in the hospital or passing away in unfamiliar surroundings.Share
