Details About Hospice of North Alabama

 

What is Hospice?

Hospice care is delivered by a team of caregivers that include a physician, case manager/nurse, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain and volunteer (if requested). When the patient is admitted to hospice care, a case manager will meet with the patient and family within the first 24-48 hours to assess and document the needs of the patient and family. Following this meeting, the case manager will develop a care plan for the interdisciplinary team to follow.

Hospice Team

  • A case manager/nurse will visit the patient based on the needs of the patient and family. During these visits, the case manager/nurse will review physical, emotional and spiritual findings and determine and record any changes necessary to provide optimal care and manage the disease process.
  • A hospice aide, under the supervision of the case manager/nurse, will visit the patient according to the schedule that is set up at the time of admission. The number of visits per week can be adjusted depending on the needs of the patient and family. The hospice aide will assist in bathing/grooming, recording vital signs and report to the case manager/nurse of any changes in the patient’s condition.
  • Guided by the patient and family’s needs the social worker coordinates the resources of the family, the hospice and themunity into an integrated program of support.
  • Chaplains provide pastoral care that coordinates spiritual services offered through the hospice staff, local religious organizations or community clergy.
  • Volunteers can be requested by the family to provide caregiver relief, patient companionship or other services that may be of assistance to the family.

Hospice of North Alabama Reviews
0 Star Rating Still reeling from our experience from Hospice of North Alabama
The fallout from dealing with their inexperienced, under-qualified, unprofessional staff is as painful today as it was when we first encountered them. If taking their social worker before the state board seeking sanctions tells you anything, take note.They left the deceased alone in the room, feet uncovered, eyes open...not even enough courtesy and respect to cover him and lay him properly. His 79 year old mother found him in that state, and respectfully closed his eyes, covered his feet and tucked him in. Not one member of their staff assisted her. Shameful and unconscionable. Horrible. Stay away.
