Our Oklahoma City nursing services are available 24-hours, 7-days a week. INTEGRIS Hospice nurses are specially trained in symptom management and are experts at pain management. Other nursing services include helping with dietary concerns and ordering medical equipment. A home health aide may be assigned to assist with the personal care of the patient. Working in conjunction with the hospice nurse, they are a vital part of the team and provide for the personal grooming needs of the patient.
How INTEGRIS Hospice nurses support patients and families
In addition to providing medical assistance and administering medications, hospice nurses may act as a liaison between the patient and family and the physician. As the patient’s condition weakens, this role becomes even more valuable. Because of the impact of this role on the patient and family, it is important for a patient to enter a hospice program as early as possible. An early referral allows the patient and family enough time to build trust with the hospice nurse before death occurs.
