Indicators for Hospice Appropriateness:  When is the right time?

At some point in all of our lives, decisions will be made as to whether we want to pursue a cure or quality of life.  For many, cure may not be an option.  As our desires shift from cure to quality, hospice is the specialty of choice.  Hospice service is covered by most private insurances, medicare and medicaid.  Medications and medical equipment needs are covered under the hospice benefit, as they relate to the admitting diagnosis.  However, only one-third of patients in the United States who are eligible for hospice care actually receive the service. Often times, the transition to hospice occurs very late in the progression of indian generic levitra option the disease, however, many patients could benefit from hospice services much earlier.

Hospice service should be considered if a person has:

  • Repeated hospitalizations
  • Progressive, unintentional weight loss
  • Refusal or inability to eat
  • The need for assistance with activities of daily living
  • Frequent infections
  • Inability to heal wounds
  • Progressive decline in overall status
  • Determined that aggressive treatment is no longer an option, or is not desired by the quotations patient and/or family
