Hospice provider’s role in care
Upon admission to the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home, we rely on the hospice team to supply the following:
- Medication planners, including patient labels
- Syringes for liquid narcotics
- Personal protective equipment for the resident
- Wound care supplies
The hospice/nursing agency will maintain all record and ownership of the following: physician statements, care plans, funeral arrangements, and emergency/familial points of contact.
Due to the unique nature of our home, in the event of an emergency or the passing of the patient, only the overseeing hospice/nursing agency will be notified by the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home staff. It is the responsibility of the overseeing care team to coordinate family, doctor, and funeral home contact.
