Our team of registered nurses at Hygieia Hospice are expertly trained to care for and manage all types of physical and emotional symptoms that cause pain, discomfort and distress.
Keeping our patient comfortable and pain-free is vital part of hospice care.
Our registered nurse will conduct a thorough initial evaluation assessing the needs of the patient and family for hospice care. The registered nurse will then work with the patients’ physician and our hospice medical director in developing a comprehensive plan of care to meet the needs identified during the initial hospice evaluation.
Our registered nurse will take charge of coordinating the patient plan of care with the hospice interdisciplinary team to ensure the accurate and timely implementation of the hospice plan of care.
Our registered nurse is dedicated to promoting and maintaining patient quality of life by providing but not limited to medication teaching and administration, education emotional support and guidance, safety protocols, and referrals to ancillary services provided by the hospice benefit.
