Pet Recommendations for Patients
While many of us love our furry friends and cannot imagine our lives without them, it is important to keep in mind that they do pose a threat to your home medical device. If your device is not stored properly or placed out of reach from your pet, your device could be at risk. Cords could be chewed; devices could be knocked off of lower tables or your device could be covered in pet hair or slobber.
Additionally, you may have Lincare employees that deliver or visit your home. Lincare employees will not enter your home unless your pet has been secured beyond the point of contact to ensure their safety. Although we realize your pet may be very friendly, and in your opinion, harmless, pets can be very protective of their owners around strangers.
