DME tried to give me used equipment
#11
Success Success!! Yes, I also feel bad for the next person not being knowledgeable.

For the P10, the main problem folks have is the back sliding up on their hair. If you have long enough hair, try a loose ponytail. If not, velcro on the hair side (wrap it on for now) helps.

For once, I may have lucked out with curly hair.

What I want to know is, when are you changing your name from HalfAsleep to BrightEyed&BushyTailed? Too-funny I bet it won't be long.

I'm expected good news from you tomorrow.

Sleep-well

Great job on having your eyes and ears open to DME (Disreputable Medical Equipment) shenanigans. Just saying it fits in this case and seemingly was attempted to be an earned label as well.

Hi HalfAsleep,

Great job, you definitely were wide awake and loaded for bear for that visit to the DME. And you did set the bar high. Keep us posted on your experience.

Well done HalfAsleep, these people need to be kept in line, and I thought our health service was poor.

It is very much a case of catching the crumbs that fall from the table here, with many, especially seniors, scared out of their wits to complain for fear of their treatment being affected or being branded a troublemaker.
They even suggested to me that I might like to take my "business" elsewhere after I pointed out the error of their ways.

I am evidently none the worse for wear, and my hair went grey decades ago, so no noticeable impact there.

I loved all your comments!  First night update on separate thread.

The DME changed their game plan. Newest game? Run out the clock...

I've been unable to get a different mask even though time is of the essence, since compliance due date is 2 weeks away, not to mention return windows, etc.

Over a period of days, they've put me on endless hold, listening to their advertising "car sales type" "Our customers are our top priority" BS.

They first claimed they couldn't find my prescription, despite the fact that they had already mentioned they had my record right in front of them. "Could you hold please while I look for your prescription?"

Twice.

I end-ran the problem by getting the doc to send them a new prescription.

Today? Same old, same old. Phone hold #3.

I wrote a letter to the president of the company, mentioning that my State is very persnickety when it comes to ripping off seniors.
