change of supplier and revised ordering process for out of hours suppliers
Forms are here for both the consent and for reducing the risks of home oxygen. Please beware that both pieces of paper need signing before completing the Part A of the HOOF (Search for Prescribing Oxygen under COVID-19 on this website)
Here is the updated guidance. There are links to the necessary documents. Take your time as I do not think it is written clearly for the casual prescriber, not used to the acronyms! However all the links are here. The Home Oxygen Consent Form (HOCF) and Initial Home Oxygen Risk Mitigation Form (IHORM) must be completed prior to completing a Part A Home Oxygen Order Form (HOOF). A palliative patient does not need a Home Oxygen Assessment and Review (HOS-AR) if they are not suitable.
Palliative Oxygen Therapy is specifically discussed on pages 26 - 27 of the document. These are guidelines for Home Oxygen Use in adults and may not be appropriate in all circumstances. Published in Thorax June 2015. Recommended by our community respiratory team.
