12.16.2014 - Not all Hospice Care is the Same!
This month’s Consumer Reports contains a helpful "Guide to the End of Life" which suggests what to look for when choosing a hospice. As the only Joint Commission accredited hospice in our area, I was not surprised that we are also the only hospice to meet all six of their criteria, including “hospice certified nurses and doctors available 24 hours per day.”
Last week our Chief Clinical Officer, Monica Anderson, pinned our five most recently certified staff members. They are Dallas Adams, CNA, and nurses Jon Cohen, Pam Carlisle, Kristen Lee and Regina Jones. Certification in hospice and palliative care is an important quality indicator and I am so proud that all six of our physicians and so many of our nurses and certified nursing assistants have taken the time to sit this important examination.
