Removal of Oxygen

The oxygen supplier (Dolby Vivisol) must be informed promptly when oxygen is no longer required, to avoid continued daily charging.

The GP can organise for the oxygen to be removed by contacting Dolby Vivisol (they may request that the information is documented on the most recent HOOF).

RESPS can also organise for oxygen to be removed for patients known to the service.

Removal process: Document on the patients HOOF under additional information "Remove all oxygen equipment as the patient is deceased".
