RN Case Manager
Every Oasis Hospice RN is specially trained in providing care to Hospice patients. Their areas of expertise include pain and symptom management, education regarding disease specific interventions and coordination of care with the rest of the Oasis Hospice team. Your Hospice RN will communicate and collaborate with your Attending Physician or Hospice Medical Director to address all aspects of your medical care. Nursing staff visit patients at least weekly and frequently more often to ensure gold standard quality of care.
Licensed Medical Social Worker (LMSW) or Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
Oasis Hospice employs only Master’s Prepared Social Workers. Our Social Workers are trained in providing counseling services in addition to assisting with decisions related to nursing home placement, shopping for Assisted Living Care Homes and other community resources like Meals on Wheels or Social Security. Social Workers can come alongside in supporting grieving children and providing other special care related to caring for the terminally ill.
Spiritual Support or Chaplain Services
Our Oasis Hospice Chaplains are different than Pastors. They are uniquely qualified in ensuring the spiritual aspect of our patients and family members are attended to. Just as we experience physical and emotional pain, we feel spiritual pain as well and your Chaplain is able to provide the spiritual care you need to navigate this frequently difficult journey.
Most patients think our most valuable asset is our CNA’s! They are the eyes and ears of the RN Case Manager and provide the special touch unique to them. CNA’s visit 2-3 times a week and help with showers, bed baths, changing linens on the bed or other special tasks like feeding a patient. The Aide Plan of Care is developed by you and your RN to specialize the services you will receive.
The Hospice Physician
Our Hospice Medical Director is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Care. He has handpicked a team of physicians to coordinate care for our patients and families and has a special heart for the terminally ill. Each patient on service is discussed with our Physicians at least every two weeks to ensure the medical management of their care is current and correct.
