Question What do I do with supplies I don't need?

Q. My child has been decannulated. What do I do with all the left-over equipment and supplies?


* Post items to the “Pass It On” Message Board (donations only)

* Send a list of items to the trach-ties listserv.

* Post your items on our Facebook page at:

* Selling items on eBay or craigslist

* Find a local group that will accept medical donations.

* Ask your child’s doctor that did your trach care has others needing supplies.

* Check with local visiting nurse/hospice programs

* Local college with a nursing & surgical tech program might need supplies for teaching.

* Local church or mission groups might accept supply donations.

* There might be a parent-to-parent support program for families with special healthcare needs who know of families who need equipment.
