Dignity Hospice offers complete coverage of medications directly related to a patient’s hospice diagnosis as well as medications for comfort. Upon the initial assessment, Dignity’s Registered Nurse (RN) Case Managers thoroughly review and discuss a patient’s medications with the patient and/or family directly, as well as with Dignity’s Medical Director. Dignity’s Medical Director ultimately determines which medications will be covered.
Dignity Hospice also provides any necessary Durable Medical Equipment (DME). All DME is delivered wherever a patient calls “home”, free of charge, to assist with comfort, safety and quality of life. Upon admission, Dignity’s RN Case Managers work with the patient and their family to discuss their specific DME needs and answer any questions they might have. A patient’s equipment may include, but is not limited to, a wheelchair, walker, hospital bed, bedside table, bedside commode, oxygen, etc.
Finally, when needed, Dignity Hospice provides any necessary medical supplies such as briefs, wipes, gloves, wound care supplies, etc. These items are ordered by Dignity’s RN Case Managers and are delivered to the patient’s home, free of charge.
