Referrals

The hospice option should be discussed before a crisis occurs, before the family is exhausted or when the patient chooses palliative care over curative care. 

A referral to hospice is appropriate when:

  • A patient has a serious illness with a life expectancy of 6 months or less.

  • Comfort care and symptom management become the primary focus.

  • Curative treatment is no longer the patient’s choice or option.

Anyone can initiate a referral to Advance Hospice Care of America, Inc. Hospice will call the family to get information and informed consent. Hospice will also call the doctor for information about diagnosis and prognosis, orders for medications and treatments, patient and family understanding of the disease and prognosis, patient history and physical information and orders for hospice care. A hospice staff member will make an appointment for a family/patient visit and will develop a plan of care based on the nursing assessment.
