Hospitals

Superior Orthotics & Prosthetics has a strong history of servicing patients in hospital locations. We’ve created a customized program that offers the best outcomes in both patient care and financial savings.

Superior Hospital Partnership Program

By partnering with Superior, hospitals benefit by having a single-source providing DME, orthotic and prosthetic care, maximizing patient care efficiency and cost savings.

Superior’s Hospital Partnership Program manages and services all DME and bracing needs through call-in service, consignment closet and clinic care models within emergency departments, same-day surgery centers, clinics, and patient floors. Expansion of services to satellite facilities is being planned.

Our on-site practitioners and management team can provide you with:

  • Maintenance of inventory par levels
  • Product ordering and restocking
  • Paperwork management and staff education
  • Patient discharge education and planning
  • Purchase order requests
  • New product education
  • Discharge assistance for home medical equipment orders

Partnering hospitals will receive the following benefits:

  • One contact source for all DME and bracing-related needs
  • Reduced inventory and costs on DME products provided at discharge
  • Reduced costs for purchase order products and services
  • On-site service management and practitioner team
  • Continuing education for staff on DME products and services
  • Discharge planning assistance for home medical equipment needs

Superior Hospital Referral Process

Intake

  • There is one intake number for all orders, questions and comments.
  • A live intake specialist will perform all intake duties and forward to the proper practitioner or department.
  • For after-hour requests, we are contracted with a national on-call service to offer live intake. All after-hour calls will be forwarded to the proper department immediately via text and email to ensure a timely and guaranteed response.

Dispensing Orders

When making a referral to Superior, a patient must have a dispensing order and patient information. In most cases, a dispensing order can be verbal.

The dispensing order must include:

  • A description of the item
  • The beneficiary's name
  • The beneficiary's height and weight
  • The name of the physician
  • The date of the order
  • The physician's signature (written order)
