I’ll never go back to the practice I had before.

I didn’t realize that there was something better than what we were already using. This is a whole new level of practice.

Every time I’ve used a Macy Catheter, the patient is already comfortable within 15-20 minutes.

…we are able to meet the patients and families’ goals of care,

which is to achieve a comfortable passing at home. That is the most valuable thing that I have seen from use of the Macy Catheter, that we are really able to honor the patient and family’s last wishes.

Many times when our loved ones are disoriented and racked with pain, caregivers also are greatly, greatly affected, and we want to do the best, but sometimes we don’t know what is best. And so I’m very grateful that in my sister’s case, in Alice’s case, in our family’s case, the Macy Catheter was what would save her…

The Macy Catheter as a Standard of Practice

When Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton received notice that they had only four days’ supply of injectable medications remaining, they responded to the crisis by implementing the Macy Catheter.

What was first intended to be a short term solution became a standard of practice.

Dr. Wendy Schmitz, MD, Vice President of Medical Care at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton, quickly discovered that medication administration via the Macy Catheter controls pain faster than when medications are administered subcutaneously. She also found that the device allowed clinicians at her practice to effectively control pain with fewer dose adjustments. Because the Macy Catheter facilitated quick, effective symptom control at her practice, Dr. Schmitz also observed a decrease in nursing time.

Due to its clinical and operational benefits, Dr. Schmitz decided to keep using the catheter after the shortage passed. She established use of the Macy Catheter as a standard of practice.
