|Newsletters: Letter to the Editor|
We received the following e-mail in response to the article “Too Much to Carry” in the May/June 2010 LifelineLetter. Thanks, Jack, for taking the time to write. This is a great suggestion!
Dear Lifeline Editor,
My home care provider has shipped my HPN supplies for the past five years. Whether I’m on business or traveling for pleasure, they ship overnight. I have them ship to my hotel and then call the hotel and ask them to put the package in a refrigerator until I arrive. They use UPS overnight shipping and use this same service to deliver the HPN to my house every week.
I suggest you let your readers know to check with their supplier first when traveling [before trying to make other arrangements to have medical supplies shipped] as the cost to them may be $0.
