First Community Care of Bassett is a leading provider of oxygen equipment and home delivery, including:
- Liquid oxygen
- Oxygen concentrators
- Oxygen cylinders
- Portable oxygen systems
- Ultra-light portable systems
As a part of the Bassett Healthcare Network, we work closely with your healthcare provider to supply the equipment and oxygen indicated by your condition and provide ongoing support for monitoring and assessment. First Community Care (FCC) accepts most insurance plans and will deliver directly to your door.
What to Expect
Your healthcare provider will determine your blood oxygen level with an oximeter. Based on your oximetry readings, the doctor will order:
- Liter flow (the amount of oxygen delivered, for example: 2 liters per minute)
- Frequency (how often you wear the oxygen, for example: 24 hours a day; at night; or only while exerting yourself)
- Duration (how long oxygen is required, for example: for a few months or for a lifetime)
With this information, a First Community Care of Bassett trained service technician will arrive on the same day to install all the necessary equipment, and instruct you on the safe and proper use of all devices.
Within two business days following your set up, and at no cost to you, a FCC licensed respiratory therapist will visit your home and perform a respiratory assessment. The therapist will review your medication, monitor your oximetry, and answer any questions you may have. The therapist will consult with your physician and follow up with you as needed to ensure effective care in your home.
