Helen & Jerry give honor to all of the amazing nurses who work in hospice during National Nurses Week in the U.S.
Most hospice nurses will tell you that hospice is their calling. It’s where they find meaning and purpose. The field of nursing has many specialties, hospice being one of them. In this episode, Helen & Jerry share a few ways that hospice nurses fulfill a unique role.
They provide comfort care, not curative care.
They enter into the patient’s and family’s environment.
Although they work with a team of clinical and psychosocial professionals, they are often called upon to provide the emotional and spiritual support for the patient and family.
Our thanks to all the nurses who have chosen hospice as their calling. You are appreciated more than you know.
