Physician Services

All patients receiving service must be under medical supervision, provided by an attending physician. Oversight of physician services and each patient’s plan of care is the responsibility of the hospice Medical Director, who should complement the attending physician’s care and act to assure overall continuity of the hospice program’s medical services.

Nursing Services

The Four Levels of Hospice Care

Routine Care

  1. Hospice services, including care by all interdisciplinary group (IDT) members and the provision of medications, equipment, and supplies, are available when the patient receives care.

  2. The level of care requires intermittent home visits by members of the IDT as identified in the interdisciplinary plan of care.

  3. The focus of care is management of patient symptoms and support and counseling of the patient and family/caregiver.

  4.  The patient’s caregiver is responsible for the patient’s care during intervals between hospice home visits.

  5. The type, intensity, and frequency of visits are based on the patient’s needs.

  6. Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Inpatient Hospice Care

  1. Inpatient care on a short-term basis for palliation of acute medical and/or psychosocial symptoms related to the terminal illness is available only at a contracted skilled nursing facility and/or an acute care hospital. Care provided in the facility adheres to the same standards of care, intensity, and mix of services as provided to patients in their place of residence.

  2. The hospice continues to provide all services to the hospice patient in a facility, including visits by interdisciplinary group members, medications, and equipment/supplies necessary for the management of the patient’s terminal illness.

  3. A Registered hospice nurse will make daily nursing visits.

  4. The frequency of home health aide and other staff visits will be based on individual need.

Respite Care

  1. Respite care is short-term care available at a contracted nursing facility when the IDT determines it is necessary to relieve the caregiver.

  2. Services provided during the respite stay include those provided with routine home care.

  3. The hospice nurse must visit the patient at the facility at admission and before discharge from the respite facility.

Continuous Care

1. The need for continuous care is indicated when a medical crisis develops which cannot be managed by the family, in conjunction with intermittent support by the hospice team. A medical crisis is defined as an acute exacerbation and/or decompensation of the patient.


2.   Decision factors for continuous care include:

             A.   Patient/family wishes to remain at home

             B.   The move of the patient to another care setting would create a hardship for the patient or family

             C.   Continuous care will enable the hospice to manage the symptoms more effectively.

The goal of All Hope Hospice is to help you live in peace, comfort, and dignity up to and including the moment of death. If you would like to learn if your loved one is eligible for hospice care, please call our us now at 510-241-0619.
