    Iowa Health Home Care - Des Moines
    The initial visit was on time, the nurse brought the infusion pump, medicine, and supplies, and demonstrated how to do the infusions. I assume that their protocol meets FDA standards, but I was taken aback that rather than disposing of the tubing after each infusion, I was to use it for a second infusion. UnityPoint also didn't cap the terminals on the picc lines in my arm. In the hospital, they used new tubing for each infusion, and new caps after. When you're being treated for a potentially life-threatening infection, cutting these corners to save a couple bucks seemed pretty bogus.
    Also, you have to work around the nurses' schedule, instead of the other way around. I normally started my infusion at 6:30 a.m. so I wouldn't be very late for work, but on the mornings when I couldn't start the infusion until the nurse came and drew blood, I had to wait until the nurses dropped their kids off at school, so I couldn't get started until around 8:30. If you're homebound it wouldn't matter much when nurses came, but when you're trying to miss as little work as possible, it was a hassle. You'd think a big company like UnityPoint could find a nurse or two that could start their day by 6:00.
    Thank goodness for insurance. Over $1000 for a blood test? Wellmark got substantial discounts off the prices for the tests, medication, and supplies, but it still was a lot of cash going to UnityPoint.

    It went well, he was very helpful with suggestions and it was decided that I would be fine on my own. He was the assessor as to whether occupational theapy would also come. He felt that it was necessary and said they would contact me. It was more than 10 days later that they finally contacted me. By then I had figured it out myself by trial and error. The Occupational therapy part was the only negative. The PT department did their job fine. He helped me figure a few things out, warned me not to use the stairs to the basement, went over exercises and gave me the go ahead.

    They were excellent just excellent. I had them for 3 weeks and I was sad when they left. They came mornings and nights to check my blood pressure, check my sugar and made sure all my medications were in order.

    Their service was good. They were very particular about fitting him with a wheel chair that he would be comfortable with. It was also a wheel chair that I could handle i.e. to put it in and out of my car and things like that. We thought they did a really nice job with that.

    We felt that they have a good team of professionals. We had nurses that would come at various times as he was ill for four years. We thought they were really topnotch. We had a nurse who didn't seem to work with his personality that well. When we said that, they were very good about appointing someone else. We also used their service where they had to deliver equipment or medication to our house and the people who came were extremely efficient and very courteous. We were very pleased with their service overall. In terms of billing, I have no clue about how all that works so I can't really comment on that.

    Lincare has a sleep pack for people who snore, one of the machines they have. They also have a nebulizer that helps my husband breathe. They contact us on a regular basis make sure that if we need anything from them, their personnel comes home. They are just were punctual, laid back,  very easy to work with. My husband has really never complained about them.
