Unpopular Non Cool Topic

When a loved one exits a hospital room or a skilled care facility room all of the left over supplies are tossed into the garbage. The supplies can not be used by a person in a different room for various reasons. The supplies are tossed into the trash. Ask for a plastic bag or two at the desk. Bring home these supplies. When the patient returns home you will have a few supplies until you are able to source good prices for often needed items.

I now have maybe a one month supply of bed pads, adult diapers, and wet ones to cover a patient for a month at home. This would save tons on washing soiled clothing and sheets when a washing machine has no electricity or water.
