Referring a patient to hospice care can be difficult but is the right thing to do for patients with a terminal diagnosis. Devoted is glad to step in and aid both you and your staff, as well as the patient and family through this conversation.
Devoted will start by assessing the patient, family, disease, and needs in order to generate a unique plan of care. We also recognize the importance of the care you have provided thus far and the special relationship that exists between the patient and physician. We are glad to work closely with you to ensure your patient’s needs are being met.
Our Interdisciplinary Team, which includes our Hospice Medical Director, can involve the patient’s primary care physician (PCP) in decisions made about the patient’s care. The PCP may be as involved in the patient’s care as they and the patient wish.
If you have questions about the referral process or how Hospice care functions, you may reach out at any time.
