How Your Patients Choose Medical Products For In-Home Use

You’ve been caring for your patient for what seems like an eternity, and they are ready to go home. If they are like many patients you discharge, they are not back to their pre-admission state and there will be some recovery time needed at home. If they are going home with any sort of durable medical equipment or a condition that requires care with medical supplies, you can bet that they will require some education on how to do for themselves what you have been doing for them. When you are completing patient education in anticipation for discharge, it may help you to know how your patients will be making decisions on what medical products they will purchase.

Follow along in today’s post as we review some of the ways that patients came to select HR Lubricating Jelly as their brand of choice for home use lubricant.

“It was the same lube they used at the hospital.”

Many people are under the assumption that what their medical provider use is the best possible product available. They also assume that if it worked at the hospital, that’s what I should continue to do. When they visit their local medical supply store or corner pharmacy, they will look for the product that their medical team uses at whatever facility they just left.

When you use a high-quality product like HR Lubricating Jelly at your facility, you are setting your patients up for success. When used in any setting, HR Lubricating Jelly offers benefits that other lubricants cannot. Some of these benefits include its kosher certification, the superior water-based viscosity, and the sterile packaging and bacteriostatic contents.

“My healthcare provider recommended it.”

Those who have little to no healthcare knowledge value and trust the input of their medical providers. When you are educating your patients on how to care for themselves at home, they will nervously listen to your advice, hoping they will be able to do as you did.

When your patients ask which lubricant they should use, suggest them the comfort and safety offered by HR Lubricating Jelly. If you trust it enough to use for all of your patients in your practice, advocate for those who need a quality product for in-home use.

“It had the best reviews online.”

Nowadays you can rate everything and provide instant feedback about services and products to benefit other consumers. Online ratings and reviews allow consumers to read about how the product actually worked for people like them and compare it to other products. Amazing qualities like the bacteriostatic properties or the sterile packaging may not mean too much to the end-user, but reviews like
“I have used all the products on the market, and none was as comfortable to self-cath with as HR Lubricating Jelly. Pain-free and made the whole procedure so smooth!”

“It’s what my family member/ friend/ neighbor uses.”

Before people purchase nearly anything, they will ask for the input of someone who already uses a similar product. While this always helps put the user’s mind at ease, it is unfortunate when their source has been just dealing with a sub-par product because they don’t know anything else. Remind your patient that what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for everyone and while they should seek advice and input, it is best to try products out for themselves!

HR Lubricating Jelly is available in single-use packets, which make it convenient for on the go and to keep the environment clean, even at home. Additionally, the single-use packs are great for sharing!

However, it is that your patients seek information about products that they will use for care at home, help them make the best-informed decisions. Arm them with all the facts and let them try the products that you have on hand for themselves. An important part of patient education is familiarizing them with the products they will be using. Fortunately for you and your patients, HR Pharmaceuticals has owned the mark of assurance, consistency, and convenience for over 80 years.
