Before the patient comes home, look around to assess the space. Make sure there is appropriate room for the ventilator, and other required equipment and supplies. Make sure Emergency Medical Services would have easy access to reach the patient in case of an emergency. Be sure to have a clear path to the patient.
Typically, home care patients spend a lot of time in one room, so set up the designated space for comfort and efficiency.
