Each year, Urology Nurses and Associates Week takes place in the first week of November, dedicated specifically to the nurses, nurses' assistants, and other healthcare workers that have chosen the field of urology. Each of them serves a crucial role within the healthcare system. Some work primarily in continence care, providing the education and support our customers' need to live their lives as normally as possible. Others act in roles within oncology, surgery, cystoscopy, urodynamics, and more. No matter where they work and the position they serve, they provide a necessary role that is integral to their patients' well-being.
As providers of intermittent catheters and other urological supplies, we interact with urology nurses daily, taking time to understand what is needed for their patients. We're grateful to all urology nurses, associates, and doctors for choosing 180 Medical to provide their patients with their needed catheter supplies along with top-notch customer service. Here are a few reasons why they choose us and consistently stick with us for patient referrals:
- One-stop Referral Option: Nurses are busy, and convenience is one of the many reasons they choose 180 Medical for their patient referrals.
There's not a lot of time in their packed day to seek out a provider that can handle supply needs and is also contracted with that specific patient's insurance company. 180 Medical understands that nurses need a quick and efficient option to fill out a referral so that their patients can obtain the supplies they need. With 180 Medical, it's as simple as faxing or emailing the referral to us. From there, we work hard to process and verify the patient's insurance and call them within the same day during business hours. If we don't carry the supplies the patient needs, or if we happen to not be contracted with that patient's insurance, we personally handle finding and referring the patient to a company that can! This way, we make sure the patient can get their needed medical supplies, whether we end up supplying them or not.
- Individualized Care: At 180 Medical, we understand that every situation is different. Each patient's needs are as unique as the individuals themselves. Our customer specialists will work hard to get the best product for each patient, while working with the urology nurse's recommendations. We also take time to educate patients on how best to use a catheter hygienically, even offering time to help them with a step-by-step walk-through of the process of catheterization. This helps the referring nurse or associate to lessen any follow-up needs on their part.
We are proud of being able to act as an extension of the compassionate care and service of all of the urology nurses, doctors, and associates at their facilities. We encourage our readers to promote this well-deserved week.
