Stupid insurance people!

Okay, wouldn't common sense tell you that if you have a child with a neurogenic bladder (which I forgot to list on my last message) and she is catheterized all night, every night ... that you MIGHT want disposable gloves? Okay, let's say that the urologist told you that you as the mom don't need to be gloved and sterile, just "clean cath'ing". But home health nurses catheterize her 5 times a week. They are mandated that they have to wear gloves!

Yet our insurance company says that unless the patient is a quadraplegic, paraplegic, or has encopesis, you do not get disposable gloves.

HUH!?!?!?!?! Sure, they're not THAT expensive. But the little things that aren't covered, add up!

Stupid insurance company. I need non-latex gloves, in bulk.
