What does the end of a weekend mean for a hospice patient?  Does it even matter what day of the week it is?

One thing for sure, issues for patients and families are not controlled by “office hours.”  There is no real control as to when pain hits hard or when death happens.

That is why hospice teams have nurses “on call” twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week.

We are available and respond!
