Choosing a Hospice Provider
Five things you should know when choosing a hospice provider:
- Owned and managed by local clinicians and business men vs huge nameless companies or investors.
- Hospice-certified nurses and doctors on staff and available 24 hours per day.
- Patient/Staff ratios exceeding industry standards.
- Respite and Inpatient care unit contracts where patients can go if symptoms can’t be managed at home.
- Ability to provide care in nursing homes and assisted living residences.
- Approved providers for Medicare / Medicaid & most private insurance companies. That way, Medicare/Medicaid/Isurance will cover services, including equipment and home health aides as needed, plus counseling and grief support for the patient and the family.
