Many people on hospice will need medical equipment (DME) to help improve their quality of life.  In most cases, medical equipment is supplied by the hospice agency through a third-party vendor at no cost to the patient.  In this episode Helen and Jerry share what you need to know about DME. 

DME, or durable medical equipment, is used to help improve the patient's quality of life.  Wheelchairs and walkers can improve mobility.  Hospital beds with special mattresses can increase comfort levels and improve sleep.  Other special equipment are used for symptom management, such as oxygen concentrators, nebulizers, and suction machines.
