After giving birth, undergoing surgery or recovering from an illness or injury, the scramble to obtain the best medical supplies for home care proves a difficult task. With a list of necessities from a physician or nurse in hand, one may find themselves bouncing from pharmacy to drugstore in search of the right products, amongst a sea of varieties and brands.
Cardinal Health™ Hospital Quality at Home™ products make the transition from hospital to home recovery a smoother and more successful one. With products that aim to give you professional quality with the ease of at-home use, the focus remains on healing and recovery.

· Under the supervision of a health care professional, some use cases for transparent dressings include early stage bedsores (stage I and II pressure ulcers).
The Cardinal at home products are great. We received a plethora of products that i wish I had post surgery. i have had 3 C-sections and my husband has had 5 knee surgeries…so i know all too well what is need and wanted in at home care products!
The items I found extremely helpful within the pack were the bordered silicone foam and the transparent dressing. These items are extremely useful when having to redress wounds or sutures. The other nice item within the pack was the protective underpadding… this proves useful if the patient cannot move and you do not want to ruin any bedding.
