In an effort to save time, we ask that prescribers include the following information on their prescriptions when writing an order for medical equipment.
1. TYPE OF EQUIPMENT BEING PRESCRIBED
2. DIAGNOSIS OR DIAGNOSIS CODE
3. LENGTH OF NEED
4. PATIENT WEIGHT & HEIGHT
By including this information on the prescription, additional paperwork can be avoided.

it the next business day and have it delivered to the patient.
