Decatur County Home Use Medical Device Database

This database has been created as a joint effort between Decatur County Public Health and Decatur County Hospital to compile a list of residents who are dependent upon home medical devices. The database will be confidential. Decatur County Public Health and Decatur County Hospital will share the information collected on the database, between themselves and with local Emergency Services personnel (Law Enforcement/Fire-Rescue/EMS), for purposes of responding to an emergency incident in which Decatur County Hospital, Decatur County Public Health staff or other emergency response personnel will conduct well-being checks on those citizens listed in the database.

Example: Ice Storm
Staff will contact citizens listed in the database to assure their welfare during such an incident, and make arrangements for needs that may arise; including transport to a safe area.
