What Differentiates Salus Hospice?
You have options when choosing a hospice care provider. WHO you choose makes all the difference.
RN Model of Care – Our hospice patients and families benefit from the continuity of care they receive through consistent RN Case Management visits from one RN who is assigned to monitor their care.
Staffing Ratios – We highly value our hospice nurses and recognize that providing individualized care is made easier when caseloads remain low.
It is common in the hospice industry for a case manager to manage upwards of 20 cases.
Our RN Case Managers are tasked with ensuring personalized care for between 12 – 14 cases each.
This allows more time for one-on-one focus and results in optimal clinical and emotional outcomes for our hospice patients and their loved ones.
- Data Supports Our Practices – Continuous analysis of data informs our hospice care decisions as we work to improve quality of care for our hospice patients.
What is Hospice?
When faced with a terminal illness, hospice offers a solution for patients with a goal of returning home and spending the time they have left surrounded by family and friends. It’s often the ideal choice for patients who no longer wish to pursue ineffective or cumbersome interventions. This family-centered, holistic approach provides pain management, emotional healing and spiritual support in the end stage of life and in the place were most of us are most comfortable, right at home.
Hospice’s physical care provides the support necessary to better manage the pain and discomfort often associated with a life-limiting disease or illness. When pain is appropriately managed, living each day to the fullest is often a more realistic and achievable goal. Salus™ Hospice professionals work with you and your personal physician to create an effective and compassionate care plan, providing the right level of support to enhance your quality of life.
