Pediatric Home Medical Equipment

Our HME staff works closely with Nationwide Children’s Hospital specialists to provide home medical equipment designed to meet the special needs of newborns, infants, and children who have acute or chronic medical conditions. When medical equipment or supplies are needed, one of our pediatric nurses or HME technicians demonstrates proper use, so families are comfortable with caring for their child at home. HME is available to ship to pediatric patients in all 88 Ohio counties. Exception: Bili blankets are currently only available in Homecare’s primary nine county service area, which includes Franklin, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, Ross and Union counties.

Phototherapy Equipment

Phototherapy is ordered by physicians for babies who have jaundice or hyperbilirubinemia – which is high levels of bilirubin in a baby’s blood.

Homecare’s HME technicians deliver and setup phototherapy equipment on a baby at home, and teach parents on proper use. Patients usually need to be on the phototherapy equipment for just one to three days. The baby’s physician will request lab draws each day to test for bilirubin levels. Once the baby is discharged from the phototherapy service, an HME technician will arrange to pick up the equipment.
