It is critical that you continue to receive your usual care during this time.
As a precautionary measure, there have been several changes to how you receive your care during this time.
We have increased the use of phone and video (tele health) consultations with medical and nursing staff. Please keep an eye out for text messages or emails we may send you regarding your appointments.
Please know that the VRSS has sufficient supplies of ventilators and associated equipment to look after the needs of all our clients during the coming months.
Please follow the cleaning, maintenance and ordering routines recommended in your Home Ventilator Discharge Booklet.
