Lehigh Valley Hospital hospice nurse takes caring to the next level #motels

Lehigh Valley Hospital hospice nurse takes caring to the next level

Jeanne Vogt, director of hospice care at Lehigh Valley Hospital. tells her new hires nursing goes beyond what you learn in school.

“What we look for is the heart in nurses for hospice care,” Vogt said.

Consider Lisa Bickel.

A hospice nurse for 28 years, Bickel was nominated by Vogt for an excellence in nursing award for the way she handled a patient’s final moments about a year ago at the 17th Street Allentown facility.

The Berks County woman was caring for a terminally ill woman who had three young children and very little time left.

“(The children) were on the unit, but we didn’t want them in the room when she actually died,” Bickel said.

Instead, Bickel and the patient’s sister picked out three stuffed teddy bears. Before giving them to the young children as gifts, Bickel placed the three bears in the arms of their mother, who would pass away that night.

“I kept the teddy bears as close to her heart as I could and told the kids that they were close to her heart all night, and that she’d always be a part of them,” Bickel said. “It’s something they could have the rest of their lives.”

It was the sort of caring gesture Vogt had come to expect from Bickel in their three years of working together. It’s what helped her win the Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Dr. Fred Fister Award for Excellence in Hospice Nursing. She received the award at a ceremony last month.

“Lisa works night shifts and usually when you have night-shift nurses they don’t get to be as much of a part of the team,” Vogt said. “But she’s just so phenomenal because she has created such an incredible team spirit.”

Vogt said her nomination for Bickel went beyond her gesture for the patient’s children and was meant to also acknowledge the “little things” Bickel does for the hospice.

“We’ve had employees go through hardships, and Lisa is the one who puts out emails to get everyone together, make them aware and (organize help),” Vogt said.

Bickel also regularly places inspirational messages in the break room for her co-workers to read during the day, Vogt said.

For Bickel, the award reflects a belief she’s developed in her three decades of work.

“Our society looks at death as something feared and something awful, but it really can be quite peaceful and be another passage,” Bickel said.

Bickel said she and her team look to make patients and their loved ones as comfortable as possible and to give them the opportunity to have special moments near the end of loved ones’ lives.

Bickel’s award reflects her compassion.

“What nurses will find out is that it’s truly a gift to be able to be at the bedside with a patient and their family,” Vogt said. “It’s a true expression for the labor of love and the emotion it creates. Lisa embodies that emotion.”

Hospice Care Options

Committed to ensuring the quality of life and respecting the choices of the patient and family, our team of hospice experts offers a wide variety of specialized services designed to meet the patient’s needs. The team works together to meet the unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each patient and family.

Care for the whole person

  • The patient drives their plan of care through personal choices.
  • Family and loved ones are taught how to safely care for the patient. They are given support throughout the end-of-life process.
  • The nurse case manager is an expert in pain and symptom management. The nurse will institute the plan of care, and continue to assess changing needs.
  • Our medical director is available for home visits and consultation with the patient’s physician and nurse.
  • A social worker addresses the psychological and emotional needs of the patient and family, assuring access to community resources.
  • Chaplains can provide for spiritual needs.
  • Home health aides assist with personal care and light housekeeping.
  • Trained volunteers provide companionship, friendly visits and support for caregivers.
  • A registered dietitian assists with dietary needs.
  • Physical, occupational, respiratory, and speech therapy are available when deemed necessary for the patient’s comfort by the team.
  • A bereavement counselor provides support for at least thirteen months after a patient’s death.
  • SandCastles Grief Support Program for Children and Families. offers open-ended support for children who have experienced the death of a loved one.

Where can we provide care?

The hospice plan of care, successful pain management and family support make it possible for most hospice patients to remain at home where their loved ones can care for them. Families learn basic caregiving skills and techniques from hospice team members who regularly visit the home. When home care is not an option, hospice care provided to patients in:

  • Nursing homes
  • Assisted living centers
  • Adult foster-care homes
  • Homes for the aged
  • Senior citizen apartments
  • Hospitals

Hospice admission

When a patient requests admission to the hospice program, the hospice staff will contact his or her primary physician to make sure admission is appropriate at the time of the request.

The patient will be asked to sign consent and insurance forms similar to the forms patients sign for hospital admission. An important form specific to hospice says that the patient understands that hospice care is aimed at pain relief and symptom management, not curative treatment. Additional forms outline hospice services being offered, and describe the Medicare hospice benefit.

The nurse case manager will assess the patient’s needs and assist with obtaining any medical equipment that may be necessary for safe and efficient home care. The hospice staff also will develop an individual care plan and set up a schedule for home visits by team members.

Your right to quality hospice care

Henry Ford Hospice is dedicated to providing compassionate care of the highest quality to all of their patients in the community, regardless of ability to pay and without discrimination. Hospice is less expensive than conventional end-of-life care because of the way it is administered. Family, friends and volunteers provide much of the day-to-day care in the patient’s home. Expenses are further held in check because less high-cost technology is used.

In Michigan, hospice is paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, Health Alliance Plan, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Michigan and other commercial and private insurance plans. Insurance coverage rarely provides for the full cost of care. To fill the gap between reimbursements and actual cost of care, Henry Ford Hospice relies on grants and community support for both donations and volunteer staff.

Mercy Hospital of Buffalo

One of the Largest Hospitals in Western New York

Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, part of Catholic Health, is one of the largest hospitals in Western New York with the region s busiest emergency room (ER); our new $32 million ER is triple the size of our previous facility.

We are accredited by the Joint Commission, illustrating that we meet the highest quality and safety standards in our field.

Smoke-Free Campus

Please note that smoking is not permitted anywhere on Mercy Hospital property or its off-site locations. This smoke-free policy includes all buildings, parking areas, cars parked on hospital property, grounds and adjacent sidewalks.

I came to the Emergency room with severe chest pains. It turns out that I was in the midst of a heart attack.

I was immediately taken in and given excellent care from the ER staff, and I was then put into a room. The cardiologist and staff did a superb job. I had an angioplasty and a stent put in before I knew what was happening. I can tell you that the instant it was done, I felt the difference physically.

Having a heart attack at age 47 is a scary thing, but I truly felt that I was given the best care in Western New York.

Become A Hospice Or Hospital Chaplain Interfaith Minister #hospics

#hospice chaplain

#

Home Hospital and Hospice Ministry

Hospital Chaplaincy Overview

Addressing the spiritual needs of the sick and dying and their loved ones can be an incredibly rich and rewarding experience. Over half of The Chaplaincy Institute alumni work or volunteer in a hospital or hospice setting, applying the interfaith spiritual care and application principles they have learned through our programs.

Our Interfaith Studies Certificate Course prepares individuals to serve the spiritual needs of our religiously and culturally diverse world in whatever capacities they are called, including hospital or hospice chaplaincy. Many of our faculty members are professional chaplains working in these settings.

Depending on your academic and professional goals, Interfaith Studies students are required to complete 100-200 hours of supervised practicum in an area of interest that relates to their desired focus of ministry or spiritual care, and often students choose to do their practicum in a hospital or hospice environment. For many, this is the deciding factor in undertaking the journey to becoming a hospital or hospice chaplain.

Becoming a hospital chaplain involves a different set of certification criteria than becoming a hospice chaplain. Chaplaincy in a hospital generally requires a graduate degree, CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education), and board certification as a professional chaplain. The Interfaith Studies Certificate Course can be part of the process to become a hospital chaplain, and a student’s practicum can be completed in a setting that meets CPE criteria.

Currently, becoming a hospice chaplain does not require certification. In many hospice settings the individuals fulfilling the chaplaincy role are called spiritual counselors. These can be paid positions and involve many of the same responsibilities undertaken by a chaplain in an institutional setting. The interfaith focus of those who participate in The Chaplaincy Institute programs make them ideal candidates for spiritual service in a hospice setting where patients and their families embrace a wide range of spiritual and religious paths and practices, or none at all.

The Role of a Hospital Chaplain

  • Addresses spiritual needs of hospital patients and their loved ones, aligned with patients’ values and preferences
  • Provides competent and compassionate spiritual care interventions based on spiritual needs assessment
  • Offers spiritual presence and listening during times of suffering and despair
  • Comforts patients using inspirational resources important to them, such as blessing, prayer, meditation, or reading of sacred texts
  • Works to mitigate spiritual pain and to address end-of-life fears and hopes
  • Provides spiritual support, counseling, grief and healing interventions, and education for hospital staff

With a length of stay between 10 and 14 days, this insurance-based residential program focuses on stabilizing adolescents in acute crisis.

At our two locations, McLean s main campus in Belmont, Massachusetts, and McLean SouthEast in Middleborough, Massachusetts, the coeducational program operates in unlocked settings, maximizing each individual s responsibility and capacity for self-control. The ART is a voluntary program so residents must be willing to participate in treatment.

For more information or to make a referral. call 617.855.2800 (Belmont) or 774.419.1100 (McLean SouthEast)

We specialize in treating teenagers who are struggling with psychiatric diagnoses such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. We also offer a specialty track for those whose illness is complicated by a co-occurring substance use disorder.

Groups and structured activities involve skills training, team building, preparing meals, and recreational therapy. These pursuits enhance daily living skills, build self-mastery and esteem, and provide a sense of autonomy and membership in a community.

Teens and young adults can be referred to the program from home or any level of care, including inpatient, partial hospital, and outpatient. We offer a full range of services, including assessment and consultation, group therapy, skills training, education, medication evaluation and management, and family therapy. As part of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. the program offers access to care and services throughout McLean Hospital.

At McLean SouthEast we also offer day program services, the McLean SouthEast Adolescent Partial Hospital Program, for teens who require intensive, structured treatment but are able to manage living at home.

Our staff is composed of a multidisciplinary group of board-certified psychiatrists, licensed psychologists and clinical social workers, registered nurses, and expressive therapists. The ART staff specializes in making sophisticated assessments, diagnoses, and recommendations in complex situations.

    What is Hospice?
    Hospice is not a place. It is a philosophy of care. A special kind of care for dying people, their families, and their caregivers that
    treats the physical needs of patients and their emotional and spiritual needs
    takes place in the patient’s home, or in a home-like setting, hospital, or nursing home
    concentrates on making patients as free of pain and as comfortable as they want to be so they can make the most of the time that remains to them
    considers helping family members an essential part of its mission
    believes the quality of life to be as important as the length of life Hospice affirms life. It neither hastens nor postpones death, but exists in the hope and with the belief that terminally ill patients and their families can live as fully as possible until the end of life.

    Criteria for Admission to Hospice
    The patient has a terminal diagnosis, and the physician has determined a prognosis of 6 months or less, if the disease runs its normal course.
    The patient’s physician determines that aggressive or curative treatment is not desirable, and palliative care is the appropriate medical treatment.
    The patient is no longer receiving curative treatment for the disease, and has elected treatment goals toward the relief of symptoms, rather than a cure.
    The patient and family are aware of the diagnosis and prognosis and agree to hospice care in the home, or home-like setting.
    The patient has a primary caregiver, or caregivers, who maintain responsibility for the patient and participate in the physical care of the patient. If the patient does not have a primary caregiver at the time of admission to hospice, the patient and family are encouraged to have a plan for caregiving when the patient is unable to care for him/herself.
    St. Margaret’s Hospice offers palliative care to all terminally ill people and their families regardless of age, gender, nationality, race, creed, sexual orientation, disability, diagnosis, availability of caregiver, or ability to pay.

    Benefit of Early Admission
    The patient and family can benefit much more from hospice services if referred earlier. Symptoms can be anticipated and prevented before becoming severe or requiring a hospitalization or emergency room visit. These symptoms can be successfully managed by the hospice team in the patient’s home. Too often, referrals for hospice care are not made until the patient has uncontrolled symptoms or is near death. The patient’s and family’s quality of life can be greatly enhanced by an earlier admission into St. Margaret’s Hospice.

    Medicare Hospice Benefits
    The Medicare Hospice Benefit is covered under Medicare Part A. Under this benefit, the patient will receive a wide range of non-curative medical and supportive services for their terminal illness. The Medicare Hospice Benefit also supports the family and loved ones of the patient. The Medicare Hospice Benefit includes:
    Physician Services
    Nursing Care
    Medication for symptom management and pain control
    Medical equipment and supplies
    Short-term inpatient and respite care
    Home Health Aide Care Social Work Service and Counseling
    Spiritual Care
    Volunteer Service
    Bereavement Services

    Private Insurance Hospice Benefit
    Most private insurance companies recognize the benefits of hospice care and are willing to pay for hospice services.

    How Much Does It Cost to Have a Baby?

    The cost of having a baby is just the start down a long road of expenses in the cost of raising a child .

    Childbirth costs vary by hospital and by state, and complicated births can add thousands of dollars. Here’s a snapshot of the cost of having a baby in the United States.

    Hospital costs of childbirth

    In most cases, mother and baby get separate hospital bills, but the baby probably won’t chip in, so we’ll discuss them both together. According to data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for 2014, the latest year available, national median charges for childbirth hospital stays in the U.S. were:

    • $13,524 for delivery and care for mothers.
    • $3,660 for newborns.

    Most hospitals use a fee-for-service system in which each test, visit, procedure and consultation is billed separately. The facility fee, or hospital charge, and the charge for the delivering physician make up a large portion of costs for many uncomplicated deliveries.

    Aside from the hospital charge and the doctors’ fees, costs typically include lab tests, epidural, radiology and any medications provided.

    Childbirth costs outside of hospitals are not well-known

    Only 1.36% of women gave birth at home or in a birthing center in 2012, a figure that has been increasing since 2004, according to the latest data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    There s no definitive data on whether giving birth at home or in a birthing center costs less than childbirth in a hospital.

    Complications increase the cost of having a baby

    “Any type of unforeseen complication will increase costs,” says Dr. Marina Maslovaric, OB-GYN at HM Medical, a women’s clinic in Newport Beach, California. Common examples are excess bleeding or blood pressure problems that doctors monitor, Maslovaric says.

    How health insurance pays for childbirth costs

    Coverage for pregnancy and maternity care are included in all health insurance plans, a requirement of federal law, with two main exceptions:

    • Young adults are allowed to stay on their parents’ plan until they turn 26. If you become pregnant while on a parent’s health plan, the plan may cover pregnancy and maternity care costs, but not labor, delivery and newborn care. If that’s the case, you qualify for a special enrollment period for health insurance. You can enroll in a plan up to 60 days after the baby is born, and the coverage can be retroactive to the day of the birth.
    • Grandfathered health plans, which are health insurance plans created and kept in force since or before March 23, 2010, might not include pregnancy and maternity coverage.

    For a big expense such as childbirth, there is one key element of your health plan to look at: the out-of-pocket spending limit. That’s the most you’ll have to pay for in-network charges in a year, after which your plan must pay 100%. A health plan year is typically, but not always, a calendar year.

    How much your health insurance covers depends on:

    • Copays, coinsurance, and deductibles outlined in your plan.
    • How much you ve paid toward your out-of-pocket spending limit so far during the plan year.
    • Whether you use doctors and hospitals in your plan’s provider network.

    In 2017, the maximum by law for out-of-pocket limits is $7,150 per person and $14,300 for a family. Copays, coinsurance and deductibles you’ve paid toward care during this plan year all count toward the spending limit when all services are in-network.

    If you use only services and doctors included in your health plan, you should pay no more than $14,300 for delivery and newborn care in 2017, though paying that much is not likely if you have health insurance. However, the spending limit only applies to costs covered by your plan: If a doctor is not in your network, or your plan excludes certain services, those charges don’t count toward the limit.

    What is Hospice?
    Hospice is not a place. It is a philosophy of care. A special kind of care for dying people, their families, and their caregivers that
    treats the physical needs of patients and their emotional and spiritual needs
    takes place in the patient’s home, or in a home-like setting, hospital, or nursing home
    concentrates on making patients as free of pain and as comfortable as they want to be so they can make the most of the time that remains to them
    considers helping family members an essential part of its mission
    believes the quality of life to be as important as the length of life Hospice affirms life. It neither hastens nor postpones death, but exists in the hope and with the belief that terminally ill patients and their families can live as fully as possible until the end of life.

    Criteria for Admission to Hospice
    The patient has a terminal diagnosis, and the physician has determined a prognosis of 6 months or less, if the disease runs its normal course.
    The patient’s physician determines that aggressive or curative treatment is not desirable, and palliative care is the appropriate medical treatment.
    The patient is no longer receiving curative treatment for the disease, and has elected treatment goals toward the relief of symptoms, rather than a cure.
    The patient and family are aware of the diagnosis and prognosis and agree to hospice care in the home, or home-like setting.
    The patient has a primary caregiver, or caregivers, who maintain responsibility for the patient and participate in the physical care of the patient. If the patient does not have a primary caregiver at the time of admission to hospice, the patient and family are encouraged to have a plan for caregiving when the patient is unable to care for him/herself.
    St. Margaret’s Hospice offers palliative care to all terminally ill people and their families regardless of age, gender, nationality, race, creed, sexual orientation, disability, diagnosis, availability of caregiver, or ability to pay.

    Benefit of Early Admission
    The patient and family can benefit much more from hospice services if referred earlier. Symptoms can be anticipated and prevented before becoming severe or requiring a hospitalization or emergency room visit. These symptoms can be successfully managed by the hospice team in the patient’s home. Too often, referrals for hospice care are not made until the patient has uncontrolled symptoms or is near death. The patient’s and family’s quality of life can be greatly enhanced by an earlier admission into St. Margaret’s Hospice.

    Medicare Hospice Benefits
    The Medicare Hospice Benefit is covered under Medicare Part A. Under this benefit, the patient will receive a wide range of non-curative medical and supportive services for their terminal illness. The Medicare Hospice Benefit also supports the family and loved ones of the patient. The Medicare Hospice Benefit includes:
    Physician Services
    Nursing Care
    Medication for symptom management and pain control
    Medical equipment and supplies
    Short-term inpatient and respite care
    Home Health Aide Care Social Work Service and Counseling
    Spiritual Care
    Volunteer Service
    Bereavement Services

    Private Insurance Hospice Benefit
    Most private insurance companies recognize the benefits of hospice care and are willing to pay for hospice services. St. Margaret’s Hospice can contact your insurance company, with your permission, regarding the hospice coverage your individual insurance policy provides. The St. Margaret’s Hospice Social Worker is available to assist you in understanding and explaining your hospice benefit.

    What is NOT Covered by Hospice?
    When you elect hospice care, Medicare and most insurances will not pay for the following:
    Treatment intended to cure your terminal illness
    Diagnostic testing that is not recommended by the hospice provider
    Medications unrelated to your terminal diagnosis
    Room and board in your home or if you live in a nursing home
    Care from another hospice that is not set up by your hospice

    Pain Management
    Patient Rights Only
    As a patient of this hospice program, you can expect:
    your reports of pain will be believed
    information about pain and relief measures for your pain
    a concerned staff committed to pain prevention and management
    health professionals who respond quickly to reports of pain
    effective pain management

    Spiritual Care
    Spiritual Care is key to the work of Hospice. Spiritual issues and concerns are defined by the patient and addressed after permission from the patient. The patient and family are encouraged to continue any present relationships between their own church/religion and ministers. St. Margaret’s Hospice Spiritual Care Service offers:
    Non-judgmental listening
    Reassurance for patient and family
    A comforting presence
    Prayer when appropriate

    Volunteer: The Heart of Hospice
    Volunteers provide assistance for various activities. Many are relatives and friends of former hospice patients who, having seen how much St. Margaret’s Hospice can help, want to contribute to our good work. To qualify to assist in patient care, volunteers must go through orientation and training sessions:
    Comfort Care What you can do to help ease pain or discomfort
    Communication Skills How being attentive with simple presence says it all
    Grief/Loss Process Understand the journey
    Hospice Philosophy Support the best quality of life as possible
    SMH Hospice Services Know the mission, goals and values of our Team

    We are looking for people interested in helping someone’s days become more meaningful. Volunteering for Hospice will make a difference in your life while you make a difference in the lives of others.

    Do it for others, Do it for yourself!
    Feel you are needed
    See the difference you make
    Change your life
    Learn a new skill
    Make new friends
    Build self esteem
    Gain satisfaction
    Lower your stress level

    Example: There are a few times in life when a meal is so expertly crafted and planned that it is nothing short of genius. Last night, I had one of those meals – the Mahi Mahi.

    The dish was excellently prepared. Grilled, juicy, and fresh without a hint of fishiness. A glaze of tangerine sauce brought a hint of tart sweetness. The fish was placed on a mound of sweet plantain rice. The combination of the fish and rice alone was to die for!

    However, as only expert chefs can achieve, additional garnishes provided even bolder, beautiful tastes. Pickled onions topping the fish made for an even finer taste experience, while green beans hidden under the fish added freshness and completed each bite

    The Case for Hospital Palliative Care

    Working with Referring Physicians: Walk in their shoes

    Dr. Andy E. Esch offers tips for fellow palliative care specialists on working with referring physicians.

    Palliative care programs can help hospitals and health systems achieve the ultimate win-win healthcare scenario: high-quality, well-coordinated medical care at lower cost.

    Steady, Rapid Growth

    The number of U.S. hospitals offering palliative care services has been growing rapidly for over a decade. Researchers report that the number of programs in US hospitals with 50 or more beds increased from 658 in 2000 to over 1700 in 2012. [Source: American Hospital Association Annual Hospital Surveys and data from the Center to Advance Palliative Care’s (CAPC) National Palliative Care Registry™. )

    By establishing patients’ goals of care through skilled communication and management of complex pain and symptoms, palliative care teams can meet seriously ill patients’ needs and help them avoid unwanted and expensive crisis care. Palliative care programs also link diverse hospital departments and services for effective and efficient use of hospital resources.

    The Result

    Palliative care increases patient and family satisfaction, it improves quality and it has been shown to help to extend survival. The resulting cost savings are an unintended but welcome consequence of providing high quality care. This approach results in higher quality, well-planned treatment that anticipates future care needs and helps to avoid unwanted and expensive crisis care.

    CAPC has drawn on the experiences of a wide variety of thriving palliative care teams over the years in order to develop and standardize best practices for palliative care in the hospital setting. Our free publication, provides support and examples that help professionals demonstrate the rationale for establishing a palliative care service. It can be downloaded here.

    Yosemite Naval Hospital during WWII

    From 1943-1945, the Ahwahnee Hotel’s Grand Lounge in Yosemite Valley was transformed into the U.S. Navy’s Ward A with injured WWII sailors and marines.

    Photos: History of the United States Naval Special Hospital: Yosemite National Park

    Yosemite’s luxurious Ahwahnee Hotel (now known as The Majestic Yosemite Hotel) was the brainchild of the National Park Service’s first director. Almost from the first moment he saw Yosemite Valley, Stephen Mather envisioned building a luxury resort hotel to attract the wealthier class of visitors. Given the park service’s precarious funding situation in its earliest days, Mather felt that attracting a well-to-do and politically influential patronage would be crucial for financing development of other essential services for all classes of visitors to the park. The director dedicated his political expertise and personal financial resources to making the scheme a reality. Unfortunately, the first two concessioners chosen to complete the project failed to measure up to the task. Frustration over these failures was largely responsible for the forced consolidation of the second of Mather’s failed concessioners with its chief competitor, the Curry Camping Company, in 1925. One of the conditions in the lease given to the new Yosemite Park Curry Company required that it construct the luxury hotel. Fourteen months later, the site of the new hotel was being cleared for construction. On July 14, 1927, it was formally opened.

    During WWII, the U.S. Navy leased the posh Ahwahnee Hotel to serve as a wartime hospital.

    The Ahwahnee did not prove to be initially as successful as expected. Almost immediately company management began lobbying the National Park Service for self-contained recreational facilities at the hotel: a dance pavilion, golf course, swimming pool, tennis and croquet courts, a “Kiddie Kamp,” and “the building of bridle paths and foot paths.” By 1930, the golf course and tennis/croquet courts had been added.

    In spite of these improvements, the Ahwahnee continued to struggle. The Depression greatly reduced visitation to Yosemite, and its new luxury hotel operation was hit especially hard. Although tourism gradually began to improve after 1939, the outbreak of WWII in 1941 proved to be disastrous for many of YP CCo’s operations. Fuel rationing sent automobile traffic and visitation spiraling downward once again. The Wawona Hotel was closed, and Glacier Point severely curtailed its services. The Ahwahnee, which had been barely profitable even in the best of times, had difficulty keeping its doors open.

    The war probably was a blessing for YP CCo as it turned out. Management was undoubtedly looking for a temporary solution to the Ahwahnee’s red ink woes when the Department of the Navy offered a long-term arrangement to rent the entire hotel. Well before Pearl Harbor, the Navy had anticipated a drastic need for increased medical treatment facilities if, or rather when, the country went to war. The Ahwahnee Hotel was one of several sites the Navy surveyed in the summer of 1941 as possible candidates for emergency conversion to wartime hospitals. In 1943, the Navy leased the Ahwahnee for that purpose, with the first staff arriving at the end of May to begin refitting. The transition was not easy, partly because visitors were still being lodged at the facility when the Navy arrived. The “U.S. Naval Convalescent Hospital Yosemite National Park, California” was commissioned on June 25, 1943. Eleven days later, the first patients arrived.

    Nurses for the wartime hospital relax in their Ahwahnee Hotel quarters on Floor 5.

    The Navy’s operation at Yosemite was initially intended for neuro-psychiatric rehabilitation. The thinking was that shell-shocked patients would respond well to the peaceful setting of an isolated scenic facility. In fact, the site quickly proved to be exactly the opposite of what these patients needed. The towering cliffs caused many to become claustrophobic. Isolation and lack of diversionary social or entertainment outlets left their disturbed idle minds preoccupied with the very memories the Navy hoped to erase. Within a few months, hospital administrators wisely decided to phase out psychiatric treatment at the Ahwahnee and convert the facility into a general physical rehab unit. It was a new direction, but the same old problems prevailed. As one early staff member recalled, “If the patients weren’t nuts when they got to Yosemite, the boredom there soon sent them over the edge.” Staff morale also suffered badly.

    A change in Navy leadership in August 1943 marked a dramatic change in the hospital’s rehabilitation strategies. The new commander, Capt. Reynolds Hayden, was a seasoned veteran with years of experience managing military medical units (including commanding officer of the Navy Hospital at Pearl Harbor during the 1941 surprise attack). Besides being an inspirational leader, Hayden was competent, sensible, compassionate, and very resourceful. He immediately began aggressively expanding the hospital’s recreational and rehabilitation resources. Simultaneously, the National Park Service and a number of local and regional civic organizations also began to take a keen interest in improving the plight of the staff and patients stationed at Yosemite. By successfully scrounging, begging, borrowing, and politicking, Hayden’s administration expanded hospital facilities to include: a library, a six-lane bowling alley, an extensive crafts department, a pool hall, daily excursions to Badger Pass during the winter (with free equipment and mandatory lessons from a staff trainer), re-opening of the Camp Curry toboggan run (operated by Navy staff), on-site publication of the hospital’s own newspaper, a Ship’s Service store (including a soda fountain), a Welfare Fund, machine and wood shops, and transportation facilities (and adjusting Navy regulations so patients and staff could take leave outside the park).

    Additional hospital improvements included tripling the hospital’s physiotherapy facilities and equipment, significantly improving available housing for families of patients and staff, forming a staff/patient dance band at the hospital, organizing regular guest appearances by orchestras and USO entertainers, acquiring a projector and screen to show Hollywood movies on a regular basis, constructing new concrete tennis and basketball courts, and, last but not least, building the servicemen’s own “Oasis” beer joint, the only authorized pub in any Naval hospital around the world.

    By the time the hospital was decommissioned in December 1945, rehabilitation at Yosemite’s newly renamed “Special” Hospital had dramatically changed from what the first patients experienced a year and a half earlier. Priorities for treatment shifted from simply warehousing and physically fixing up patients to a more holistic approach of healing them body and soul. Administrators realized that treatment needed to include mainstreaming patients back into a non-military social environment, rather than isolating them from it.

    Because it was impossible to move the hospital to a “normal” community social setting, Capt. Reynolds decided to create a community at Yosemite for the patients and staff. All he had to do was provide the housing, recreational facilities, and activities; the social interaction they fostered would do the community-building for him. And, of course, success was due in a large part to the outlying communities bringing themselves to the hospital.

    It was a remarkable, and truly “special,” learning experience for the hospital’s staff and administrators. The Yosemite Special Hospital experiment proved to be a watershed event in the development of
    U.S. military medical rehabilitation techniques.

    Palliative Care

    The Weston Park palliative care service aims to improve the quality of life of people (including carers) affected by cancer by paying attention to their physical, psychological, social and spiritual concerns.

    The palliative care team at Weston Park is made up of a consultant, two specialist nurses and a senior doctor in training who provide services to around 500 patients a year with life-limiting illness.

    The care includes:

    • Pain management
    • Symptom relief
    • Psychological support
    • Spiritual support
    • Carer support
    • End of life care

    The Palliative care team at Weston Park Hospital is part of the Sheffield Teaching hospital multidisciplinary palliative care team which includes St Luke’s Hospice.

    The team works closely with other services such as the chaplaincy social workers, discharge liaison, dietetics and physiotherapy services.

    They also work with the wider health care community in the Trent Region to make sure that there is a continuity of care provided to patients who may use their services.

    Who can have palliative care?

    Anyone with a life-limiting illness may be offered palliative care to help relieve the symptoms of their illness. This care can be given in conjunction with ongoing cancer treatment or on its own for people who need help with the effects of their condition.

    When can I see a member of the team?

    The team are available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and they can visit any of the departments in the hospital including outpatient departments. Please ask your nurse or doctor if you would like to speak to one of the team.

    How is palliative care provided?

    On referral to the palliative care team a specialist nurse or doctor will visit you to make an assessment of your needs and will offer suggestions to help you manage those needs. The team may revisit you during you stay to review your situation. On discharge from the hospital a member of the team will refer you on to similar services in the community if there is an ongoing need.

    How can I contact the team?

    Your Medicare Coverage

    All people with Part B are covered.

    Your costs in Original Medicare

    If your supplier accepts assignment. you pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount. and the Part B deductible applies. Medicare pays for different kinds of DME in different ways. Depending on the type of equipment, you may need to rent the equipment, you may need to buy the equipment, or you may be able to choose whether to rent or buy the equipment.

    Medicare will only cover your DME if your doctors and DME suppliers are enrolled in Medicare. Doctors and suppliers have to meet strict standards to enroll and stay enrolled in Medicare. If your doctors or suppliers aren’t enrolled, Medicare won’t pay the claims submitted by them.

    It’s also important to ask your suppliers if they participate in Medicare before you get DME. If suppliers are participating suppliers, they must accept assignment. If suppliers are enrolled in Medicare but aren’t “participating,” they may choose not to accept assignment. If suppliers don’t accept assignment, there’s no limit on the amount they can charge you.

    Competitive Bidding Program

    If you live in or visit certain areas, you may be affected by Medicare’s Competitive Bidding Program. If you have Original Medicare and get competitively bid equipment and supplies in competitive bidding areas. Medicare may only help pay for these equipment and supplies if they’re provided by contract suppliers. Contract suppliers can’t charge you more than the 20% coinsurance and any unmet yearly deductible for any equipment or supplies included in the Competitive Bidding Program.

    If your current supplier isn’t a Medicare contract supplier, you may still be able to stay with that supplier if they decide to participate in the program as a “grandfathered” supplier. Suppliers that don’t get Medicare contracts can decide to become “grandfathered” suppliers. This means a supplier may continue to rent equipment to you if you were renting the equipment when the program started. This rule applies to oxygen, oxygen equipment, and certain rented equipment. You may continue using the “grandfathered” supplier until the rental period for your equipment ends.

    If you start renting additional equipment from a “grandfathered” supplier after the program starts. Medicare won’t pay for the new equipment.

    If you’re renting equipment that’s eligible for grandfathering, your supplier will let you know in writing 30 business days before the program begins whether it will or won’t become a “grandfathered” supplier.

    What happens if my supplier decides not to become a grandfathered supplier?

    You need to decide whether to continue to rent from your current supplier and pay all the costs, or switch to a Medicare contract supplier.

    A supplier that doesn’t have a contract and decides not to become a grandfathered supplier is required to notify you and pick up the item from your home after the program starts. Your supplier must notify you these 3 ways before it can pick up the item:

    • The supplier must send you a letter at least 30 business days before the program starts telling you that it will no longer provide rental items to you after a certain date. This letter will tell you the date that a Medicare contract supplier must start to provide you with the rented item.
    • The supplier must call you 10 days before picking up the item to make arrangements for pick up at an agreed upon time.
    • The supplier must call you again 2 business days before picking up the item.

    A supplier that isn’t grandfathered can’t pick up a medically necessary item before the end of the last rental month for which the supplier is eligible to get a rental payment.

    If you change to a Medicare contract supplier, your old supplier should work with the contract supplier so there isn’t a break in service. Keep the pickup slip or other documentation from the old supplier that shows you no longer have the item.

    Under current Medicare rules, you own these types of equipment after renting for 13 months. When you switch to a Medicare contract supplier instead of using a “grandfathered” supplier or other non-contract supplier, your 13-month rental period will start over, so you won’t own the equipment until after the new rental period ends. This will extend your rental period and result in additional months of coinsurance. However, the amount you pay may be lower because the amount you’ll pay will be based on the new payment rates under the new program.

    • Once you own the equipment, you must get replacement supplies and accessories for the equipment from a contract supplier in order for Medicare to help you pay for these items. You may get repairs for the equipment you own from any Medicare-approved supplier (even a non-contract supplier), including replacement parts needed for the repair.
    • If you already own your equipment, you must use a Medicare contract supplier for your replacement supplies and accessories.

    To find out how much your specific test, item, or service will cost, talk to your doctor or other health care provider. The specific amount you’ll owe may depend on several things, like other insurance you may have, how much your doctor charges, whether your doctor accepts assignment, the type of facility, and the location where you get your test, item, or service.
