Understanding the Hospice Admissions Process
When you have so many questions, we strive to make things easier
At Hospice Partners of Kansas Palliative Care and Hospice, we understand the stress you are under. That's why we strive to make our hospice care admission process as smooth and problem-free and possible.
After we receive a referral, a registered nurse and social worker will visit you or your loved one and family in the home. We provide an evaluation, thoroughly explain our services, answer questions and provide the benefit of years of experience helping patients and families make a decision about hospice care. We also consult with the treating doctor to ensure that hospice care is an appropriate choice. Finally, we deliver a consent form to confirm that hospice care is the desired treatment. Once signed, hospice care can begin almost immediately, usually in three hours or less.
We also provide those in need with an urgent admission option. With this, a registered nurse, social worker and any other member of the team can be at your home within two hours of receiving a physician's order.
You should always feel free to ask questions or seek clarification from any member of the Hospice Partners of Kansas team. Providing the best possible care for our patients means providing their loved ones with the best possible care as well.
