When patients need pain control or other symptom management, an inpatient hospice facility can provide services that allow patients to receive quality comfort care during the end-of-life stages. Designed to be short term, patients will achieve comfort and return home or have a supported end of life experience.
Hospice trained clinicians are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week to work with physicians, care coordinators and discharge planners to:
- Gather information on patients and family members
- Evaluate for admission
- Coordinate paperwork, orders, and transfers
