How Hospice Nurses Care for Patients
From the first steps of the hospice admissions until the final steps of a patient’s end-of-life journey, the experienced and compassionate care of our hospice nurses is what families will experience with Armonia.
A hospice nurse is responsible for hands-on, care. From administering medications, ongoing wound care, to documenting patient vital signs, hospice nurses play a critical role in guaranteeing their patients are as pain-free and comfortable as possible.
The patient and nurse bond are not only important but also very special. The trust patients have for their nurses is especially critical as it can ease any fears or concerns a patient may have. A patient may share their fears about death that a hospice nurse or chaplain can help alleviate.
Hospice is of the belief that no one should die alone which is why coordinating the presence of a nurse during a patient’s final hours is a priority. During a patient’s final hours, hospice nurses provide a caring, and comforting presence while providing soothing care that ensures the patient is free from any discomfort.
