    So far no one will answer me. I have also been researching medical companies that manufacture medical equipment, hospital take back programs, and laws that require certain types of disposal conduct.

    Here are some interesting facts that I found:

    Approximately 7.2 million people in the US require some form of home health care.

    Almost two-thirds of home health care recipients are over age 65.

    Conditions requiring home health care most frequently include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and hypertension.

    Hospital stays have been shortened considerably, starting in the 1980s with the advent of the diagnosis-related group (DRG) reimbursement system as part of a continuing effort to reduce healthcare costs. But as a result, many patients come home "quicker and sicker," and in need of some form of care or help that family or friends may not be able to offer.
