Myth: A Doctor Must Recommend Hospice First

article-hero-image

MYTH: "I wanted to learn more about hospice, but thought I had to wait for the doctor to bring it up first so he could order it for my brother."

TRUTH: Patients can choose for us to meet with them and discuss the benefit of hospice at any time. We cannot provide hands-on care to a patient without a physician's order. We work with each patient's physician to identify each patient's individual needs.
