Each and every day, our nurses show our patients and families compassion, kindness and support — no matter the circumstances, the challenges, the complexity, the time of day, or the miles apart. Because the care our nurses provide matters. We are grateful and thankful for all they do to deliver superior care and superior services wherever we are privileged to serve, now and always.
Our nurses are an integral part of our care teams, providing expertise in hospice and palliative care. They support our mission of providing superior care and superior services by administering comfort and dignity to those facing a life-limiting illness or injury.
Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to a patient’s needs. Our care team includes board-certified hospice and palliative care physicians, hospice-certified nurses and personal care specialists (state tested nursing assistants), social workers, chaplains, bereavement counseling professionals, and volunteers.
As part of the interdisciplinary care team, our nurses are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer questions and address changing symptoms or urgent needs. They visit patients regularly to monitor medications and ensure that each patient is comfortable and able to function at the highest level possible. As part of the care team, they work closely with the patient’s primary care physician to provide routine care, crisis care, general inpatient care, and respite care.
