Can my pain & symptoms be controlled at home?
Pain and other systems can usually be controlled in the patient's home. If a symptom becomes a problem, the hospice nurse can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There have been great advances in pain and symptom control in the past few years. Most symptoms can be controlled without the use of injections or IV medication. The hospice nurse will assess your pain and symptom control at each visit. Hospice medical directors are always available to adjust medications. contact us.
A hospice patient even has the chance to return to a curative treatment if they so choose. contact us to find out more.
