Home Medical Equipment Providers in Path of Hurricane Sandy Struggle to Reach Patients Who Require Oxygen and Other Services
Date:11/1/2012

NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Home medical equipment providers in the New York region are battling flood waters, downed trees, and hazardous electrical wires to deliver oxygen and other homecare services and supplies to seniors and people living with disabilities who depend on them, reports the American Association for Homecare.

"We are first responders," declared David Chase, president of Hampton Homecare, as he described the dangerous obstacles that his employees face as they deliver oxygen tanks to patients on Long Island.  

"Our employees are traveling down roads before they are cleared," Chase said. "We are responding to people who are living in their cars.  We are really concerned about the people we can't reach, the people who have no phone service.  We have started going door to door looking for our customers in their neighborhoods."

Chase is one of the many providers along the East Coast who have responded heroically in the aftermath of one of the worst natural disasters to ever hit the region. By all accounts, the home medical equipment sector has responded to the disaster with dedicated service to ensure that Medicare patients and other customers are receiving the medical equipment and services they need to sustain their daily lives.

"The role of home medical equipment providers is often overlooked during natural disasters," said Tyler Wilson, president and CEO of the American Association for Homecare.  "But they are on the front lines making sure that their customers are receiving the medical equipment and services they depend on."

Tom Ryan, owner of Homecare Concepts in Farmingdale, N.Y., said his employees have walked large oxygen
