Mercury at Home Health Care Facilities Surveys and Results 2003

During the summer of 2003, a survey was sent to all New Hampshire home health care facilities and clinicians to determine the amount of mercury-added products currently in use. Twenty-five percent of home health care providers responded to the survey. The results are compiled from those providers that responded.

  • Thermometers
    Only 1 percent of home health care providers use mercury-added thermometers and they are only used at the request of a medical provider.
  • Blood Pressure Cuffs
    No home health care providers are using mercury-added blood pressure cuffs.
