Referring to Hospice is the right thing to do for patients with a terminal prognosis. It is not an easy conversation, but it is one that should be had with the patient and caregiver.
When you have a patient you believe meets the hospice eligibility criteria, one of our Hospice Care Consultants is available to meet with you, and the patient and family to discuss hospice.
At Curo Health Services, and its affiliate hospice services, we view hospice care from the perspective of the patient, not the disease. We use a holistic, patient-centric approach. We evaluate the patient, the prognosis, the family situation and any other contributing factors in order to develop a Hospice Plan of Care. We also recognize the importance of the primary care physician’s relationship with the patient and family. We work closely with you to ensure your patients’ every need is addressed while they are in our care.
Our Interdisciplinary Team, which includes our Hospice Medical Director, will involve you in decisions made about your patient's treatment. We will rely on your knowledge of the patient's history and family situation to help guide us as we strive to provide the best care possible. You may be as involved in your patient's care with us as you wish to be.
Our Medical Directors are respected members of the medical communities where we provide services and are handpicked by our hospice team to ensure seamless, high-quality professional hospice services.
If you have questions about the referral process or how our Interdisciplinary Team functions, please contact a location near you and ask to speak with either a Hospice Care Consultant or the Director of Office Operations.
