A Primary Care Nurse will be assigned to you and will coordinate your care with other members of the interdisciplinary group to handle any nursing needs. The role of the nurse is to help prevent and relieve pain and other symptoms as well as teach caregivers ways to provide care. The nurse will also make sure that the necessary medical supplies and equipment are ordered and will assist in monitoring medications. The primary nurse will communicate and coordinate frequently as needed with your primary physician to update your individualized plan of care as your needs change. Your hospice nurse will try to anticipate your needs and assist you to better understand the natural progression of your illness. You and your caregivers are an integral part of your care, and we encourage you to participate as we make decisions regarding your care.
