The RN Case Manager

Nurse

The hospice nurse will manage your loved one’s care while on hospice services. The nurse will assess the physical needs during the home or nursing facility visits at least 2 times per week. In consultation with your primary physician and other Humanity Hospice team members, the nurse might make necessary changes in medications or treatment. Hospice nurses specialize in caring for patients with a life-limiting illness and have specialized training in pain control and symptom management. Your primary nurse will:

 

- Answer questions about the disease process and about what to expect as the illness progresses.

- Instruct you and the patient on how to take medication.

- Suggest physical comfort measures and other helpful skills.

- Help arrange for medications, equipment and other needed services.

- Work with the patient’s physician to plan for care.

- Collaborate with other team members to meet specific needs.
