Our Hospice Registered Nurses coordinate care for every patient, provide direct patient care, monitor medications and check symptoms. The nurse maintains communication with the physician as the patient’s condition and treatment changes warrants.
In general, Skilled Nursing care, provided by Registered Nurses and Licensed Vocational Nurses, includes teaching, pain and symptom control, emotional support, nutritional counseling, evaluation of disease progression, and any nursing procedure deemed necessary by the physician. The nurse will talk to patients or caregivers by phone, visit regularly to monitor the patient’s condition and coordinate the team’s work with you.
