Rising rates of hospice discharge in U #motels #in #brooklyn

Rising rates of hospice discharge in U.S. raise questions about quality of care

At hundreds of U.S. hospices, more than one in three patients are dropping the service before dying, new research shows, a sign of trouble in an industry supposed to care for patients until death.

When that many patients are leaving a hospice alive, experts said, the agencies are likely to be either driving them away with inadequate care or enrolling patients who aren’t really dying in order to pad their profits.

It is normal for a hospice to release a small portion of patients before death — about 15 percent has been typical, often because a patient’s health unexpectedly improves.

But researchers found that at some hospices, and particularly at new, for-profit companies, the rate of patients leaving hospice care alive is double that level or more.

The number of “hospice survivors” was especially high in two states: in Mississippi, where 41 percent of hospice patients were discharged alive, and Alabama, where 35 percent were.

“When you have a live discharge rate that is as high as 30 percent, you have to wonder whether a hospice program is living up to the vision and morality of the founders of hospice,” said Joan Teno, a Brown University hospice doctor and researcher and the lead author of the article published in the Journal of Palliative Medicine. “One part of the reason is some of the new hospice providers may not have the same values — they may be more concerned with profit margins than compassionate care.”

Two types of improper practices emerge

A patient must have a life expectancy of six months or less to enroll in hospice care, according to Medicare rules. Hospice treatment focuses on providing comfort to the terminally ill, not finding a cure.

While judging life expectancy is inexact, the rising rates of live discharge in the U.S. in recent years has raised concerns that the rapidly changing industry has become rife with one of two types of improper practices.

First, some hospices appear to be forsaking patients when their care becomes expensive. Hospices bill by the day, so added tests and treatments can cut into their profits. Researchers found, for example, that 1 of 4 patients who leave hospice alive are hospitalized within 30 days.

Some hospices “abandon their end stage residents to the nearest hospital ER and have the legal representative sign the [hospice] revocation papers — all to save money and avoid intensive continuous care at the end of life,” W.T. Geary Jr. medical director at the Alabama Department of Public Health, said in an e-mail.

In what researchers described as a particularly alarming pattern, more than 12,000 patients in 2010 were released alive from hospice, entered a hospital and within two days of leaving the hospital were re-enrolled in hospice. Those are the kind of abrupt transitions that can be disruptive and confusing for the dying, and which hospice care is supposed to transcend.

“The concern is that hospices could be discharging people to avoid expensive care, such as a CAT scan or an MRI — and that they are trying to game the system,” Teno said.

More than just financial harm is noticed

The other problem driving up the numbers of people leaving hospices alive is the practice of hospices enrolling patients who aren’t actually dying.

The federal government in recent years has sought to recover more than $1 billion from hospices that, according to attorneys, illegally billed Medicare for patients who weren’t near death.

The new research supports the idea that many of the patients released alive from hospice are far from death: More than one-third of patients who were released alive from hospices did not re-enroll in a hospice and were still alive six months after being released.

While the federal government has filed numerous lawsuits to recover the money spent on hospice patients who weren’t dying, the harm is not just financial.

Hospice care often exposes patients to different, more powerful drugs, including morphine and other potent painkillers. In some cases, those medications led to the death of patients who were not otherwise dying, families say.

“My mother was not dying, just old and in a lot of pain,” said Shalynn Womack, a writer in Tennessee whose mother entered a hospice with the diagnosis of “failure to thrive.”

After receiving what Womack called a “toxic cocktail” of drugs, her mother passed away. Womack has since testified to a Tennessee legislative committee about what she considers to be the dangers of enrolling patients in hospice who aren’t dying.

“Putting her in hospice was putting her in harm’s way,” Womack said.

Changing nature of hospice population among factors

In December, The Washington Post reported a rapid growth in live discharge rates, based on an analysis of more than 1 million patient records over 11 years in California — a state that, by virtue of its size, offers a portrait of the industry.

More recent Medicare statistics show a similar trend nationally: Between 2000 and 2012, the overall rate of live discharges increased from 13.2 percent of hospice discharges to 18.1 percent in 2012.

The forthcoming study, to be published in the Journal of Palliative Medicine, is based on an analysis of more than 1 million records of Medicare patients across the U.S. during 2010, and provides more detail on the variance of rates between hospices and states. It found that more than 182,000 hospice patients were discharged alive. More than 400 hospices released more than one in three of their patients alive.

A spokesperson for the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, the industry trade group, declined to comment on the findings because they have not seen the research.

In the past, industry advocates have argued that the national rise in live discharges stems from the changing nature of the hospice population. A larger portion of hospice patients today have ailments that are harder to predict, such as dementia. That, they say, could explain why more patients are exiting hospice care alive.

This explanation, however, does not appear to explain the vast differences between states that the researchers found.

For example, the live discharge rate was 41 percent in Mississippi but only 17 percent in neighboring Arkansas; it was 35 percent in Alabama but only 16 percent in neighboring Tennessee.

Becoming a commercial enterprise in the industry

The new paper also finds substantial differences between older hospices and newer ones.

In recent decades, what began as a movement to improve the end-of-life experience has become more of a commercial enterprise. In 2000, only 30 percent of hospices were run by for-profit companies, while the rest were operated by community organizations, religious groups and government agencies. By 2012, the proportion of for-profit companies had nearly doubled, to 6o percent, according to Medicare figures. Moreover, many hospices are relatively new, largely because the number of for-profit hospices has tripled, rising from 672 in 2000 to 2,196 in 2012.

At small for-profit hospices open five years or less, the live discharge rate averaged 32 percent, according to the research. That compares with 14 percent of older for-profit companies.

“That is a very striking difference,” said Melissa Aldridge, associate professor at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who has proposed that a hospice’s live discharge rate be considered as a measure of quality. “What we have found is that smaller, newer hospices had higher rates of live discharge. The ability to deal with a patient who’s having a crisis at home — to be able to send a team out there — may be more difficult for smaller hospices.”

Those patients end up going to the emergency room, Aldridge said, “and that’s usually not what someone on hospice wants. They usually want to be at home.”

When to call in Hospice

Mar 08, 2013 – 4:56 am

My husband’s cancer has spread and he has elected not to do anything further. Surgery is out due to the fact that it has spread and he doesn’t want to do anymore chemo since the chemo will be more and harder than what he has done already. Our oncologists have told us that more chemo won’t cure only prolong and could even hasten. Besides that the surgery would be very hard since it would require removal of his esophagus since the cancer was found at the cervical of his esophagus which is a rare place for cancer and has spread to his right lung. This was considered a second primary and not related to his laryngeal cancer of which he has been NED since his laryngectomy 2 years ago.

Right now he is feeling pretty good not much pain at all. Still gets out and goes. Our doctors have talked to me about calling in ho****e and while I’m not against that, I just don’t feel it is necessary at this point. And I also feel that if we call them in now, my husband will just give up right now and I want to give him a chance regarding changing his mind about further chemo.

Anyone been thru this and when do you need to call in ho****e which will be in-home ho****e care.

I hate this beast and it is a shame that a cure can’t be found after all this time and money spent on research.

I read your post with emotion.

Please consider palliative care. someone checking in with you. A step before ho****e perhaps?

This was the “goal” in our situation. My husband passed away 48 hours later. The doctors knew we were open to ho****e when the time was right. We had to force the issue.

Please, trust yourself.

I can’t say enough good about ho****e. My parents fought this right up and to the end of my Mother’s walk with the beast. They can give you specialized plans. and they will tell you Ho****e is not the end. Alot of times people turn around and no longer need their services. They are angels, and will help you through all the bumps and bangs in the road. You don’t have to make a decission today on this. But please do make a call into your local Ho****e provider and just talk. I’ll be sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. We would have been lost without them, and were able to give Mom what she needed. Hugs sent. Katie

Saint Jude Hospice opens new state offices in Platteville and La Crosse

#st jude hospice

Thursday, Dec. 05, 2013 — 12:00 AM

MADISON — Saint Jude Hospice now offers loving care for patients and families facing terminal illness from two new locations in Wisconsin: Platteville and La Crosse.

Saint Jude’s mission is to serve all patients, in the comfort of their own home, who are facing terminal illness by bringing healing to those when their hope has changed from cure to comfort.

Nurses are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They have no wait list and will respond to all requests within two hours.

Services in Wisconsin

Saint Jude Hospice has been in Wisconsin since July of 2010, when it opened its doors in Madison.

Today it provides comprehensive hospice services in the state from five locations: Madison, Baraboo, Delavan, La Crosse, and Platteville, which allows it to serve 26 counties in Wisconsin. It also has offices in Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska.

Saint Jude Hospice goes beyond the standards of hospice medical care by bringing love, comfort, and support to patients and families. It also offers complimentary music and massage therapy, spiritual support, and bereavement care — in addition to medical care, home health and homemaker services, inpatient care, continuous care, respite services, volunteer services, and medication management.

Catholic hospice

CEO Tom Moreland has felt a strong calling to serve people and to also serve the Church, which is what ultimately led him to open a Catholic hospice inspired by Jesus’ words: Love one another, as I have loved you.

Moreland explains, “A caring community devotes more attention, not less, to members facing the most vulnerable times in their lives. Our hospice program helps do this.”

Saint Jude Hospice is endorsed by nine archbishops and bishops across the Midwest. Beyond complying with state and federal regulations, it also follows the Ethical and Religious Directives of Catholic Healthcare Services.

More information can be found at www.saintjudehospice.org or by calling offices in La Crosse at 608-781-5490 or Platteville at 608-348-2778.

Royal visit at new in patient centre at St Luke s Hospice in Sheffield

A new inpatient unit at St Luke s Hospice – paid for in part thanks to The Star – has been given the Royal seal of approval.

Prince Richard, The Duke of Gloucester, toured the new extended and refurbished £5.5 million In Patient Centre at the hospice in Whirlow.

The Duke Gloucester has visited St Luke’s Hospice in Little Common Lane, Sheffield, to open the new In Patient Centre. Our picture shows the Duke signing the visitors book, watched by chief executive Peter Hartland.

The Star has so far raised more than half of the £100,000 it pledged for one of the single rooms in the new unit, with £50,000 alone coming from our Great Pie and Peas Up campaign.

Hundreds of pie and pea suppers were hosted by readers, residents, businesses, schools and community groups, with proceeds going towards St Luke’s fundraising target.

The Queen’s cousin looked around the hospice before meeting patients and staff, unveiling a commemorative plaque, and signing the guest book.

He praised fundraisers and staff for their hard work, and the architects for their design.

Harry Gration together with patient Jean Watt unveil the plaque at St Luke’s new inpatient wing

* Todays’s other top stories:

The new unit, which aims to allow patients to carry on as normal a life as possible, accommodates 20 patients in 14 single rooms and two three-bedded rooms.

The Duke said: “I congratulate those who have played a part in developing St Luke’s over the decade and, in particular, this new wing which you have clearly designed with great care and attention and which is already full of your patients who feel extremely comfortable and well looked after.”

Following the Duke’s visit, BBC television presenter Harry Gration took part in a dedication ceremony with patients.

Gaynor Boon, aged 52, from Woodhouse, has ovarian cancer and has been staying in the unit for a week while her pain relief is managed.

The former curator at Sheffield Museums said: “This is my first visit. It’s amazing really. Coming in you feel like you are walking into a hotel environment and are treated like a hotel guest.

“You have got state-of-the-art nursing and pain management, but on top of that there is the hospitality side.

“You’ve got a lovely room with a balcony, a menu which offers three-course lunches and dinners, and a restaurant service.

“My dog Hunney, a long haired golden retriever, is also allowed to visit! She comes most days which makes it feel like a home from home.”

Una Moran, director of fundraising at St Luke’s Hospice, described the unit as ‘a gift by the people of Sheffield, for the people of Sheffield’.

She said: “Everyone who has contributed should be proud of the part they have played in creating this gift for the people of Sheffield, which will be here for many years to come.”

She added: “It never ceases to amaze me the ways people think of to raise money, and the generosity people find to stretch themselves to support this hospice, which supports about 6,000 people across Sheffield every single year, including patients and loved ones.”





Healing Prayer for Loved One in Hospice #eurodisney #hotels

The Time for Hospice

When a loved one is on their last leg you go for a healing prayer of a different sort.

For a while now we’ve been talking about hospice care for Dad. I love the idea of hospice, the spiritual living in accepting dying as part of the miracle of life. The hospice movement is a caring resource for anyone with ailing loved ones and an answered prayer. But how do you know when?

I talked to Mom on the phone in the morning. “Daddy’s doing okay,” she said, “but he’s getting awfully confused.” Then I got an email from Will in response to an email from me: “When I was in fifth grade and asked by the yearbook what I wanted to be when I grew up, my response was something like this; I want to be married, have four children, 10 grandchildren and lots of friends. Something in my precocious 11-year-old head sensed that Grampie got the important stuff right.

“One of Grampie’s trademark phrases was ‘I’m proud of you.’ As he heads down the exit ramp, I couldn’t be prouder of him. As sad as the situation is, the fact that Grampie lived a life to be proud of is the giant, fundamentally important saving grace.”

Mom called me back in the afternoon to tell me that the head nurse has suggested that we look into hospice. “It’s just what we’ve all been thinking,” I said. Then I read her Will’s email and we both cried a little.

So much for saving graces.

Will sent his email from D.C. where he had to be on business. “P.S.” he said at the end, “Glad I can now cross ‘cry on the D.C. Metro’ off my bucket list.”

    New lottery in support of hospice

    A NEW lottery has been launched in aid of Salisbury Hospice.

    The Your Hospice Lottery will offer people the chance to take part in a weekly draw with a top prize of £1,000 to raise money for the work done by the charity.

    It is hoped the lottery will raise in excess of £500,000 for Salisbury Hospice Charity over the next five years, and there will also be a £100 prize, four £25 prizes and 80 prizes of £10 to win as well as the chance of a weekly rollover prize of £250, which could go up to a maximum of £10,000.

    John Munro, fundraising manager with Salisbury Hospice Charity, said: “We rely on the generosity of local people to help us raise the £1.5m needed each year for us to continue to help families in our community who are living with life-limiting illnesses.

    “A home visit from a community nurse costs £100, while one bereavement support session to help loved ones through a difficult time costs £20. By playing the weekly lottery, supporters will be providing a valuable and regular income for Salisbury Hospice Charity which will help to run services and to plan patient care.”

    Your Hospice Lottery also supports the work of St Helena Hospice, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, and The J’s Hospice – but members specify which hospice they are playing in support of. By Salisbury Hospice Charity working in collaboration with the other hospices, overheads and costs are kept to a minimum so more funds can be used to support patients and their families.

    Taking Hospice Care to the Next Level in 2012 #motels #in #denver

    #solari hospice

    #

    As I look back on the milestones we reached in 2011 and forward to the possibilities poised to unfold in 2012, I feel tremendous pride in the strides our Solari Hospice Care family has taken and will continue to take together to position our company as the hospice provider of choice in the Houston and Las Vegas communities we serve.

    I believe our one-of-a-kind recipe for hospice care is so successful because we all share a passion for providing the highest quality, most compassionate care to our patients and families. And, by mixing just the right ingredients into our hospice care “soup,” we will continue to demonstrate our ability to serve unparalleled end-of-life care.

    Strong Leadership. I truly believe that hiring and empowering proven and passionate leaders is one of the most proactive steps possible for achieving stellar hospice care — a key ingredient. I feel very lucky to have established long-term Professional Intimate Relationships with some of the most intelligent and passionate hospice professionals in the field — leaders who represent Solari with great integrity in their work to deepen existing relationships and to build new ones.

    Solari’s consistently successful leadership team in Las Vegas led that program to its best year ever in 2011. In Houston last year, we welcomed several highly qualified and enthusiastic healthcare professionals into our hospice family to guide that program’s growth in tandem with the opening of our new Houston Inpatient Home. In both locations, our medical team leaders demonstrate their dedication to excellence through continuing education and training to obtain valuable hospice and palliative care certifications. These leadership teams, in addition to the incredible group of leaders who help keep things cooking from our Central Office in Arizona, show no signs of slowing down in 2012.

    They say the proof’s in the pudding … Well, the fantastic Average Daily Census (ADC) in both cities over the past year demonstrates the skill and commitment of our company’s leaders. On the cusp of its 10th anniversary in 2012, our Las Vegas program celebrated another milestone — its highest monthly ADC ever at nearly 230 patients. That’s amazing! And it simply accentuates the need for another Solari Hospice Care Inpatient Home to serve Las Vegas’ growing end-of-life care needs. I’m excited to announce that we are in the process of finalizing the purchase of land to build our next Inpatient Home in Northwest Las Vegas, with the expectation of opening our newest “vortex of love” in late 2013. As our growth momentum builds, we also envision opening a third Inpatient Home in Southeast-Central Las Vegas the following year.

    Visionary Inpatient Care. I always call our Inpatient Homes “vortexes of love” because that’s just what they are…high-energy centers for the most compassionate, highest quality palliative care and support for our patients and families when they need it the most. Designed and built from the ground up to meet the special needs of hospice patients and families, our Inpatient Homes truly differentiate us in the marketplace. With state-of-the-art medical equipment housed in a warm and inviting setting with myriad home-like amenities and no visitation restrictions, our Inpatient Homes help keep our patients out of the cold and impersonal hospital environment. And what takes place within the walls of our IPUs is magical … teams of top-notch hospice professionals taking an integrative approach to individualized patient and family care.

    I couldn’t be happier that we are now able to offer this incredible service in the greater Houston community. 2011 saw the opening of Houston Solari Hospice care’s first Inpatient Home, which earned acclaimed accreditation by the Joint Commission in December. To achieve this huge goal, our Houston program underwent a complete leadership and operational transformation last year. With the Houston IPU accepting patients and new leaders and systems in place, 2012 promises to be an exciting growth year in Houston!

    New Technologies. Forward-thinking companies embrace new technologies because such innovation enables businesses to work smarter. As we prepare this year to implement a 100-percent electronic medical records system companywide, I look forward to working even more efficiently so we can offer the next level of service to our patients, families and professional healthcare partners. Going paperless will enable us to continue speeding up patient care response, in addition to improving communication among team members. With less paperwork to fill out, our Solari “angels” will have more time to spend face-to-face with patients and family members, allowing for increased eye-to-hand patient observation and documentation.

    Giving Back. In addition to offering the highest caliber of hospice care to our patients and families, it has always been my vision to give back to the communities we serve and beyond through the Solari Hospice Foundation. I have never been more committed to the nonprofit Foundation’s mission to help children and families through Camp Solari, and to educate the public about hospice care. With this mission in mind, we just began working with a fund development expert to help us evolve into a national resource for hospice education and bereavement support.

    To take our camp programs in Las Vegas and Houston to the next level in 2012, we recently recruited locally based professional counseling teams in both cities. Leveraging their expertise and their established relationships in their prospective communities, these counseling teams will help the Foundation realize its vision for a greater number of bereavement camps — potentially nationwide — to give children and families the tools they need to work through their grief and live the most joyful lives possible.

    Building Buzz. Thanks to the efforts of a talented Communications Media Relations team that came together in 2011, Solari Hospice Care’s and Solari Hospice Foundation’s hard work in Houston and Las Vegas is gaining broader recognition. It feels great to open a magazine or newspaper, turn on the TV, or log onto a website and see our company showcased in one way or another for the awesome service we provide to terminally ill patients and their loved ones! Beyond that satisfaction, however, lies that fact that our media coverage helps spread the word about Solari Hospice Care to both patients/families and potential referral sources. Whether they see our beautiful new commercial while watching the local news, read an article about Solari while waiting at a doctor’s office, or check out a Solari story or video clip while surfing the Web, media coverage in all forms is a valuable tool. I’m thankful for all the Solari family members who are making it happen! I have no doubt that the media buzz about our company will continue to build throughout 2012.

    All in all, I feel utterly confident that we’ve added the right ingredients to our recipe for stellar hospice care. As we continue to stir, sample, tweak and occasionally, turn up the fire in 2012, we’re sure to create a soup that’s even better than we dreamed it would be.

    ATLANTA HOSPICE AND PET CARE SERVICES

    Atlanta Pet Hospice is a Veterinary practice dedicated solely to the care of families and their pets facing end of life issues from aging or a terminal diagnosis. Dr. Helton has been performing hospice care beginning as an owner of a traditional small animal clinic in 1990 where he recognized the special needs for both emotional and medical support to families whose pets were at or near the end of their lives. Atlanta Pet Hospice is a fully mobile veterinary practice that treats patients in the comfort of their own homes.

    When its time to let go we are here to help

    v Atlanta Pet Hospice is a mobile veterinary practice dedicated solely to providing comprehensive hospice care and end-of-life services for aging or terminally ill pets.
    As pet lovers ourselves, we commit to helping pet-owning families deal with the medical and emotional issues involved in providing their pets with a comfortable and peaceable end-of-life experience. Our pets look to us for protection and love. The greatest gift of love we can give them is a compassionate and caring end-of-life experience.

    Deciding to provide hospice care for your aging or terminally ill pet should be done earlier rather than later. Dr. Helton has been in practice for over 25 years and has been consistently providing families with professional and skillful hospice care.

    Our mobile hospice care eliminates the need for stressful rides and visits to the clinic. Dr. Helton is well-versed in pet hospice care and can give the best advice on how to manage symptoms of diseases or physical ailments associated with aging as your cherished pet’s health begins to decline.

    We will help you decide the best end-of-life option for your pet. In some cases, terminally ill or geriatric pets would pass away naturally on their own, but when a drastic decline in quality of life is evident, euthanasia would be the right decision. Either way, we are here to help. The sooner you make the decision, the more beneficial it will be for your pet.

    Our end-of-life services are comfort-oriented. Our goal is to maintain the quality of life of your pet until the very end. We will guide you and give meaningful advice on how to make this time reassuring and peaceful for your pet.

    Connecticut’s Place in the History of Hospice

    Hospice serves more than a million patients each year through some 5,800 programs across the country. This vital component to the modern healthcare system has its roots in the Middle Ages, but was introduced into the United States when a visiting physician came to Connecticut’s Yale University and convinced the school’s nurses of its merit.

    “Hospice” comes from the same root word as hospitality and goes back to medieval times when the term referred to a place of shelter for those travelling upon a journey. In the Middle Ages, religious orders often set up hospices along routes to famous shrines where people were going to seek miracle cures for illness. Many of them died while on their pilgrimages and the shelters afforded comfort during their last days.

    By the 19 th century, hospice was more formally associated with care of the terminally ill and dying. It wasn’t until physician, nurse, and hospice advocate Dame Cicely Saunders founded St. Christopher’s House in London that the role of hospice in patient treatment was ensured. This facility established care for dying patients in a way that managed their pain and helped them prepare for death. St. Christopher’s was the first hospice “linking expert pain and symptom control, compassionate care, teaching and clinical research.” 1

    When Saunders spoke to Yale’s nursing students in 1963, she inspired them to bring hospice to America. In 1974, a Connecticut hospice nurse and accompanying volunteer made the first hospice home visit in the U.S. creating Connecticut Hospice. The Connecticut Hospice was officially established in 1980, becoming the first licensed hospital in the U.S. with the primary purpose of providing hospice care.

    Hospice programs provide emotional, social, and spiritual support to terminally ill and dying patients as well as their families. Hospice focuses on addressing issues of pain, as well as patient quality of life. Today it is considered an invaluable service for those approaching end-of-life and is a nationally guaranteed health benefit. The trained hospice professionals who come to the bedsides of dying patients are kind and compassionate patient advocates who find their work challenging, yet rewarding. If you’ve ever considered a hospice career, training as a practical nurse could help you attain the skills you need to work in hospice.

    Porter and Chester Institute offers practical nursing training at all five of our Connecticut campuses. If you’d like to learn more about where a career in practical nursing might lead you, contact us today for a school tour!

    I really enjoyed my total educational package at Porter and Chester Institute. I started working in the Architectural field before I graduated because of the school s awesome externship program.

    With Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, my mother’s health has been deteriorating and it has been challenging to know how to help her as we care for her at home. Her doctor is slow to respond to our questions and concerns. When I contacted Lighthouse Hospice to see if my mother qualified, they sent someone out the same day.

    Since we signed up with this organization, we have continued to receive.

    The power of poetry in hospice care

    Phil Isherwood, pictured, right, with a patient at Bolton Hospice, where he is a volunteer poet,discusses the potential for poetry to boost patients psychological wellbeing in hospice settings. Phil is alsoa research student at the University of Bolton, writing a thesis on Numinous Connections: Poetry in the Hospice .

    There is a tension between the advance of medical science, that pursues its ability to fix and treat, and an acceptance of the natural order of death and how that may be experienced. Atul Gawande, a surgeon and health researcher, has recently reignited this debate with his book Being Mortal (and also in presenting the 2014 Reith Lectures on BBC Radio). He writes: As people become aware of the finitude of their life, they do not ask for much. They do not seek more riches. They do not seek more power. They only ask to be permitted, insofar as possible, to keep shaping the story of their life in the world to make choices and sustain connections to others according to their own priorities. He puts forward strong arguments for medicine, and society, to review its approach to end of life care.

    Gawande s Reith Lectures in December were widely acclaimed. As 2015 begins, however, the press have been less encouraging about Dr Richard Smith s blog on the BMJ website: Dying of cancer is the best death . His romantic view was rather insensitive, but he was, however clumsily, arguing for a reformed dialogue and the good death in the face of over-enthusiastic treatment options. The best result from his clumsiness came on the morning of Sunday 4 January on BBC Radio 4 s Broadcasting House programme. Two Sue Ryder hospice workers (Carol Howard and Louisa Nicoll) were interviewed by Paddy O Connell, who referenced Dylan Thomas s poetry to question society s approach to death in the light of Richard Smith s blundering attempt. Our hospice workers reaffirmed that the best hospice care enables us to talk about death, not to rage against it but to seek to go gentle into that good night .

    I have been a volunteer poet at Bolton Hospice for over four years now. I don t take any lead from Dylan Thomas, or the many others, to write poems about death. I write about lives, about creativity, about the wonder and detail of simply being. When I read Atul Gawande s book it immediately affirmed my belief that my role was indeed helping patients to keep shaping the story of their life . It is a privilege for me to work with patients and to be at Bolton Hospice where there is a great commitment, not just to excellent medical care but also to the value of creative therapies: the hospice employs an art therapist, whose work includes supporting and encouraging poetry (a painting by a hospice patient can be seen below, right).

    I hope in this blog – my first ever! – to give some insight into my approach with a view to inspiring other poets to work in end of life care, not just in short, awareness-raising projects, but as long-term writing opportunities, integral to hospice care. Art and poetry in the hospice helps patients to be aware of their own creative significance. I am inspired to write poetry based upon each individual s story, or their own art or craft work. I think I can express my approach most clearly through a beachcomber analogy, to take the idea of a walk with a patient along a conversational or creative beach area. A work of art, a found poem, can be assembled from whatever we come across together. The value of the walk and the quality of the art are both equally important and the two are, in fact, inseparable. As I discover and create the poem I am simultaneously helping the patient to (re)discover something amazing about themselves and, potentially, about the legacy of art – which is able to signify a life as other , a presence in time and space not restricted to a medical history or a curriculum vitae.

    The writer Virginia Woolf talks about life being in the luminous halo of a journey. Keats advocates negative capability – to be at peace with uncertainties, mysteries and doubts. Coleridge asks for a willing suspension of disbelief to be able enjoy art. Ted Hughes speaks of the momentary as the vital signature of a human being. James Joyce finds wonder in the everyday and ordinary. My particular inspiration from talking to hospice patients has been to capture the sudden lightning flashes of significance that celebrate life. The numinous connection is to dwell, to practice being with patients among the mysterious flickerings when meaning and understanding prove inadequate.

    End of life care services have formed an approach to good death. I simply argue for poetry, and other creative activity, to be fully included. I have produced a 1,500 word Guidance Framework for Poets in End of Life Care and the following is an extract.

    A poem may take a single phrase or idea or a topic discussed. It may be a longer linear narrative of a life, or a particular experience in work or war or a childhood tale.

    A poem may form a series of snapshots or an abstract reflection of a story. It may contain no direct personal reference and yet capture an individual s lifelong passion for place or hobby. You may write as to accompany a patient s own art, a picture or piece of craft work. A simple guide is to allow yourself, through conversation, to be inspired by the patient. Explain this to the patient the first time you meet them and why you have a pad and pen and will scribble notes as they speak. Every day in the hospice I learn many things new a word, a story, a piece of history, a way of seeing something and I thank the patient every time. Such things are inspiration, occurrences which themselves declare something needs to be written about this . The poem is not an evaluation or a narrative or biography. It is not a eulogy. It is art.

    Poetry can be in the smallest thoughts, the remembered flickerings represented by the three-line Haiku-type poems. I ll finish this blog with a number of longer poems for you to dwell upon not explained or elaborated upon. Like patients, they just are; they may have been read at funerals, framed or placed in a memory box, but poems are also being with .

    Some places you never really leave.
    Part of me still sits on the terrace or strolls
    the edge of Jakobs Dam. The pure air is insistent.
    A union in a needle-leaved, boreal landscape.

    This silence remains. I am never sure if my
    ears or my eyes hear the easy soaring of
    the eagles wings. There are no songs.

    I am enchanted and you are with me.
    We gaze to the southwest horizons, to
    Skrim and Telemark, sanctioned by the wilds of
    tree and snow. Those far granite hands fix and
    crack the sky, cradle the cloud and the mist.

    I am enchanted and you are with me. Here.
    We never needed to talk about returning.

    Phil Isherwood 2014

    My granddad taught me
    to build a bike, to make each
    wheel run true and then
    set out, enjoy the ride.

    I travelled, I built, I worked
    it out. A lot of trial and error.
    Study it. Tackle anything.
    That s the way of an engineer.

    Lights and sounds and electronics.
    Leaf springs and shock absorbers.
    Memories in models; the best
    you can buy are Tamiya. Spot on.

    A trans-continental Road Train.
    A Globe Liner. A Wrecker Truck.
    HMS Matabele and a Supply Vessel,
    both built, balanced, but yet to sail.

    There was a real Zephyr Mk. 2
    that I left in Australia with a note.
    The keys are inside, yours to take
    if you want it. I was going home.

    Phil Isherwood 2014

    Another evening
    in the silence of a place
    becoming something new.

    Unformed histories, a
    murmuration, seconds of
    existence, insequent,innumerate.
    A chaos to hold the signature of art
    then let it go.

    The silence of a place
    that is devoid of fear. Everything
    settles amongst the reeds.

    Pet Hospice

    What is Pet Hospice?

    Hospice care aims to meet the physical and mental needs of a pet faced with a life-limiting illness. It begins the moment a pet has been diagnosed with a terminal condition and the family has decided not to pursue aggressive, curative therapies. Hospice exists to provide support and care for patients in the last phases of an incurable disease, or at the natural end of life. Pet hospice focuses on caring, not curing. We understand that serious illness profoundly impacts not only the patient but family and loved ones as well. Patients in the last phases of life deserve such care so that they might live as fully and comfortably as possible, and that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.

    Diseases or conditions that warrant hospice care:

    • Cancer
    • Incurable organ failure
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Neurological conditions, including dementia
    • Senior pets reaching the end of life

    What hospice services does Last Wishes provide?

    Hospice care begins with formulating an individualized plan, based on a comprehensive assessment of the patient s and family s needs while taking into consideration the patient s diagnosis, prognosis and available treatment options; the family s values, beliefs and resources; and our hospice team s philosophy and capabilities.

    Here are the goals of our Pet Hospice Program :

    • We provide our patients with a safe, caring, intimate end-of-life experience in a familiar environment, surrounded by loved ones
    • We focus on providing pain control and physical comfort to the pet, as well as educational and emotional support for the family until a natural death occurs or euthanasia is chosen
    • We give families time to adjust to their pet’s progressive disease and help prepare them to say goodbye in the comfort of their own home

    Hospice services include, but are not limited to :

    • Pain recognition and management
    • Oral and injectable medications
    • Fluid therapy
    • Nutritional and dietary therapy
    • Massage and physical therapy
    • Wound care
    • Reducing stress in the environment
    • Household modifications
    • Mental stimulation
    • Recommending non-pharmacological therapies
    • Educating family members on how to perform medical and nursing care at home
    • Educating family members on how to assess and monitor the patient’s comfort level and quality of life
    • Encouraging realistic expectations for the patient s remaining lifetime and the process of dying
    • Grief support

    How do I know if hospice care is the right decision for me and my pet?

    The decision to enter into a hospice care plan can only be made once an owner has consulted their regular veterinarian and carefully considered all the treatment options.

    Many pet parents choose hospice care in order to have the time to say goodbye to their companions, to plan for their death, and to ensure that all the decisions about the pet s needs are guided by their view of the pet s needs. If you have the resources to support comfort care, the time and desire to care for your pet during the last days or weeks of their life, and a good support team in place, then hospice care may be the right choice for you and your pet.

    We help people retain their independence, mobility and sense of control by providing practical help, equipment and advice.We help restore self confidence and well-being by giving patients the opportunity to meet socially, gain support from others in similar circumstances, and benefit from relaxation therapies.
    We give patients and their loved ones opportunities to discuss their thoughts and feelings which can relieve fears and anxieties.
    We help people plan for the future so that they can enjoy life as fully as possible.
    Where possible we support patients #x2019; carers by providing respite care, giving people a much needed break from their caring role.
    We provide open and honest explanation to questions, enabling people to make informed choices and have greater control throughout the dying process.
    We support people as their condition deteriorates, helping families, carers and friends to prepare for bereavement.
    We provide ongoing support to families and carers in bereavement, from simple practical advice through to counselling services.
    Both Hospices are separate registered charities with joint running costs of #x00a3;8 million per year. We make no charge for our services #x2013; all patient care is entirely free, and we rely on donations and other fundraising activities to fund our work.

    Holy Redeemer Hospice

    My mother-in-law was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer that spread to her bones. She was transferred to a nursing home and was supposed to be under hospice care. An aide came out to wash her every d ay, however, my husband and I only saw a nurse twice within the 2 weeks she was there. We received no counseling of any kind to tell us what to expect and what is happening with her. We had to read it online about the dying process and what to expect. She passed away on Friday, January 22 and we still heard nothing from them. They used to be absolutely wonderful. I don’t know what happened. We’re very disappointed.

    LA s First AIDS Hospice Returned To City In Memorial Service

    ELYSIAN PARK (CBSLA.com) — The Chris Brownlie Hospice, once used as the city s first hospice for AIDS patients, was turned back over to the city Saturday.

    A memorial celebration was held to honor the facility for the service it provided from 1988 to 1996 as a nursing home for people dying from diseases caused by the HIV virus.

    The building had a long history of helping the sick. The hospice once housed the nurses dormitory for the city s Barlow Respiratory Hospital, a tuberculosis sanitarium.

    AIDS patients have benefited from recent advances in drug therapies that have ended the one-time death sentence for the HIV virus.

    Since 1996, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation has used the hospice for offices.

    At today s service, the Los Angeles Gay Men s Chorus was expected to perform in memory of the hundreds who died there, including 140 chorus members.

    Seven balloons one for each year the hospice was in business were also to be released at sunset.

    The Role of Psychology in End-of-Life Decisions and Quality of Care #palliative

    The Role of Psychology in End-of-Life Decisions and Quality of Care

    Psychologists can contribute to end-of-life care before illness strikes, after illness is diagnosed and treatments begin, during advanced illness and the dying process, and after the death of the patient, with bereaved survivors.

    Findings

    Medical doctors, nurses, social workers, and the clergy have traditionally been the main players in helping care for people near death, but psychologists are increasingly using their expertise to help people have a so-called “good death” or perhaps the more accurate “least worst death.” End-of-life – defined as the period when health care providers would not be surprised if death occurred within about six months – is a time when psychologists can treat depression and anxiety associated with pending death, offer grief counseling, help people understand confusing medical terms, and help provide compassionate care for the dying and their loved ones.

    Several factors are shaping the expanding role of psychological practice in end-of-life care, according to psychologist William E. Haley, PhD of the University of South Florida. Psychologists are already trained and involved in the mental health treatment of major chronic illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, AIDS, dementia and chronic pain. Psychological intervention with these people includes psychotherapy for depression and anxiety, stress and pain management, relaxation training and family and group psychotherapy. Also, a broad-based movement to improve the final moments of life has led to research identifying major failures in hospital care of the seriously ill. This research finds that many patients are dying following prolonged hospitalization or intensive care in which their final days involve unrelieved pain and their preferences concerning life-sustaining treatments are not fully discussed, documented or followed. These findings have led to the rapid expansion of the end-of-life field, allowing for expanding contributions of psychologists.

    Dr. Haley and other members of the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Ad-Hoc Committee on End-of-Life Issues, identify four time periods when psychologists can contribute to end-of-life care:

    Before illness strikes;

    After illness is diagnosed and treatments begin;

    During advanced illness and the dying process; and

    After the death of the patient, with bereaved survivors.

    As psychologist Phillip M. Kleespies, PhD, notes in his 2004 book, Life and Death Decisions: Psychological and Ethical Considerations in End-of-life Care, it is difficult to think of a more intensely emotional and psychological time than when a patient is facing his or her decline and eventual death. “Working with professionals from other health fields, psychologists have much to offer dying patients, their families, and those who bear the burden of caregiving,” according to Dr. Kleespies.

    The role of psychologists in helping people with HIV and AIDS offers a powerful example of how psychological interventions can make a difference in coping with and adapting to loss and advanced illness across time, from prevention (see Understanding How People Change Is First Step in Changing Unhealthy Behavior ) to helping people who have contracted the life-threatening disease (see APA Office on AIDS-HOPE Program).

    Significance

    The U.S. Supreme Court says Americans should expect palliative care, which combines active and compassionate therapies to comfort and support people and their families nearing the end of life. Psychologists can make significant contributions to improve the quality of end-of-life care and decision-making.

    Practical Application

    Psychologists are increasingly taking a more active role in end-of-life issues. The American Psychological Association identifies the following four main roles that psychologists play in this area:

    Clinical Roles – Psychologists treat clinical depression if and when it arises in end-of-life matters, as well as other mental health problems associated with pending death. Psychologists also help caregivers and family members with facilitating emotional expression and how to effectively be good listeners for people who are dying. Properly trained psychologists also work effectively with issues of mourning and loss, traumatic stress, and serve as advocates for good medical care. The participation of psychologists in hospital ethics committees, palliative care, and other multidisciplinary teams is equally important.

    Education and Training Roles – Psychologists are teaching people to understand loss, grief, and mourning and to understand the differences between normal sadness and clinical depression at the end of life. They are also providing information about advance care planning and decisions (including “living wills”) and teach coping mechanisms. In 2004, APA received a grant from the National Institutes of Health Small Business Innovation Research program to develop an Internet-based program for educating psychologists and other mental health providers about helping those near the end-of-life and their loved ones. APA is working with a small business in Seattle to develop the program. Psychologists, such as Dale Larson, PhD, of Santa Clara University, were also major players in the Finding Our Way: Living With Dying in America community education project which reached millions of Americans through newspaper articles and website.

    Research Roles – Psychologists have played key roles in conducting research on major issues relevant to the end-of-life such as death anxiety; decision making at the end-of-life; family caregiving; psychological aspects of pain and symptom management; and grief and bereavement. For example, psychological research has increasingly demonstrated that most individuals who experience bereavement are more resilient than was conventionally thought to be the case. This research has demonstrated that individuals who do not experience intense grief symptoms after a loss are not at high risk for subsequent pathological grief reactions.

    Policy Roles – There are numerous opportunities and the federal, state and local levels for psychologists to advance the quality of care at the end of life. Many times dying people and their families are not fully aware of various end-of-life care options or not fully apprised of the probable benefits and burdens of these various options. Psychologists can work with other health care professions in advocating for the development of policies to ensure that people know what types of interventions and services are available to them. Other policy issues that psychologists can address include advocating for systemic changes in legal and organizational obstacles to quality care, advocate for ongoing discussion of death and dying issues in the media, the community, and in professional meetings to overcome society’s reluctance to address these issues that many consider a taboo subject, and to advocate for more equitable end-of-life care for people with disabilities.

    End-of-Life Issues

    A s care of the dying involves so much of one’s self, in this topic page I will describe my approach as an one example of how clinicians think about end-of-life care. I remember, the first time one of my patients died, feeling a chill of horror and fascination. I wasn’t prepared for it. The resident yawned–a long night, then a long code. “We better go talk to the family.” What in the world would we say? The dead patient, now dusky blue, looked unreal and unfamiliar. I was so wrapped up in my own feelings that I can’t recall much else.

    Now I find care of the dying to be one of the richest parts of my clinical life. But it is demanding in a different, more personal way, than, say, treating pneumococcal pneumonia with penicillin. Here I will describe some ways of thinking about care of the dying that have helped me figure out where I am going as I guide someone who is really sick.

    Many medical students first encounter care of the dying as an unsuccessful code or a strategic withholding of CPR. Of course, an ethically sound understanding of withdrawing and withholding treatment is crucial to good care of the dying. Yet “withholding and withdrawing” only describe what we, as clinicians, decide not to do. To provide excellent care of the dying requires that we also decide what we should do. What should be the goals of medical care for people who are dying? What makes a good death?

    What is a “good death”? A medical perspective

    The good death is not a familiar idea in American culture. Some experts in palliative care describe the United States as a “death-defying” culture, with a mass media that spotlights only youth and beauty. Yet public interest in care of the dying is currently high. The striking public interest in physician aid-in-dying is one obvious reason. But there are other reasons: over the past 100 years, there has been a epidemiologic shift in the reasons people die. In the pre-antibiotic era, people most often died young, of infectious diseases; now, thanks to medical technology, most Americans (and others with access to this technology) live much longer, to die of degenerative, neoplastic, and even man-made diseases. Finally, there is a marked public fear that a medical death, depicted in TV shows like “ER” as an unresponsive, uncommunicative body hooked up to an array of flashing monitors, represents an irresponsible use of technology and a dishonorable way to treat a person.

    Interestingly, contemporary medical literature contains little that might characterize what makes a death “good.” Recently, a large, expensive empirical study of intensive care unit deaths suggested that medical care for a common type of in-hospital death is “bad” (the SUPPORT study, referenced below). In this study of dying patients, severe pain was common, decisions to withhold invasive treatments were made at the last minute, and physicians often had no knowledge of patient preferences not to have CPR. Even worse, an intervention designed to provide physicians with better prognostic information had no effect on medical decision making prior to death. While the SUPPORT authors did not actually describe these deaths as “bad,” we could certainly agree that they were not “good deaths.”

    In caring for a person who is dying, knowing what would make the experience of dying “good” is an important goal for physicians and other members of the care team. I find it doesn’t take fancy techniques-you just need to be sincere and patient and interested. Listen more and talk less. Try asking something like, “Knowing that all of us have to think about dying at some point, what would be a good death for you?” What people choose when they think about a good death for themselves is often beyond what medicine can provide-for instance, an affirmation of love, a completion of important work, or a last visit with an important person. As a physician, I can’t always make those things happen. But I can help the dying person get ready-and in this way, contribute to a death that is decent.

    What goals should I have in mind when working towards a decent death for my patient?


    I have several working clinical goals when I am caring for someone near the end of life. I work towards:

    1. Control of pain and other physical symptoms. The physical aspects of care are a prerequisite for everything that follows.
    2. Involvement of people important to the patient. Death is not usually an individual experience; it occurs within a social context of family, significant others, friends, and caregivers.
    3. A degree of acceptance by the patient. Acceptance doesn’t mean that the patient likes what is going on, and it doesn’t mean that a patient has no hopes–it just means that he can be realistic about the situation.
    4. A medical understanding of the patient’s disease. Most patients, families, and caregivers come to physicians in order to learn something about what is happening medically, and it is important to recognize their need for information.
    5. A process of care that guides patient understanding and decision making. One great physician does not equal great care–it takes a coordinated system of providers.

    How do you know when someone is dying?

    This question is not as simple as it might sound. The SUPPORT study demonstrated that even for patients with a high probability of dying, it is still difficult for a clinician to predict that a particular patient is about to die. Thus it may be more useful for clinicians to give up relying on their predictive skills, and look at the common clinical paths (or trajectories) taken by dying patients, and design medical care that includes “contingency plans” for clinical problems that a person with incurable lung cancer (for example) is likely to experience. Such contingency plans might include advance directives and perhaps DNAR orders. as well as lines such as: “You will probably die from this, although we can’t predict exactly when. What is really important for you in the time you have left?”

    What should I know about the hospice approach?


    In order to help someone towards a decent, or even good, death, the hospice framework is very helpful. Hospice started as a grassroots effort, as a view of dying that lets go of the possibility of cure. Instead, hospices emphasize symptom control and attention to psychological and spiritual issues. Pathophysiology becomes less important and personal meaning becomes more important. Thus this framework analyzes a person’s medical care into four major topics, and this can be used to outline day-to-day care plans for a patient:

    1. Pain – one of the things most feared by patients with life-threatening illness.
    2. Symptom control – including dyspnea, nausea, confusion, delirium, skin problems, and oral care.
    3. Psychological issues – especially depression, sadness, anxiety, fear, loneliness.
    4. Spiritual or existential issues – including religious or non-religious beliefs about the nature of existence, the possibility of some type of afterlife.

    Hospice care in Washington State is most often provided by multidisciplinary teams who go to patients’ homes. This care is covered by Medicaid for patients judged to have less than six months to live. Hospice care is generally underutilized, and even though most hospice teams feel that at least six weeks of hospice care is optimal, most patients receive much less because they are either referred very late or have not wanted hospice. A major problem in connecting hospice care to acute medical care is that referral implies a “switch” from curative to palliative medicine-a model that does not fit comfortably in many illnesses.

    What you need to understand to care for the dying


    Another useful framework was outlined by Joanne Lynn, who was one of the principal investigators of SUPPORT. She suggests that there are four things clinicians must know to care for the dying.

    1. The patient’s story – including how that person has viewed her life, the other persons important to her, and how she could bring her life to a close in a way that would be true to herself.
    2. The body – which covers the biomedical understanding of disease, and what limits and possibilities exist for that person.
    3. The medical care system available for this particular patient – knowing how you can make the system work for the patient, as well as the relevant law and ethics.
    4. Finally, you must understand yourself – because you, as a physician, can be an instrument of healing, or an instrument that does damage.

    Obviously, learning how to do all this is beyond the scope of this web page–these are goals that guide a career of learning and reflection. But this framework provides guidelines for you as you develop your own approach to caring for dying patients.

    How do physicians who care for the dying deal with their own feelings?

    It is not hard to find physicians who are burned out – ask any nurse. What is difficult is to find for yourself a type of self-care that will enable you to develop your gifts as a physician, and continue to use them in practice. It helps to learn your strengths and weaknesses, and to actively seek whatever will nurture you – in or out of medicine. A strategy of detachment may not serve you well in the long run. There are indeed rewards for physicians who care for the dying, but as a Zen master once observed of a bingo game, “you must be present to win.”

    Terminal Agitation: A Major Distressful Symptom in the Dying

    Many families may be surprised when a terminally ill (and usually calm) family member becomes restless or even agitated. The depth of such restlessness or agitation varies from patient to patient. When moods change or personalities seem to change, family members may be completely bewildered and feel helpless: not knowing what to do. It is common knowledge that individuals who are experiencing even minor illnesses may demonstrate mood changes such as irritability, anger, depression and avoid communication with others. When a terminal illness not only initially strikes, but is now nearing the end, patients may experience profound mood changes. Such mood changes are often difficult for family members to handle. Causes and treatments for restlessness and agitation are well-known among the palliative care professionals who work with the dying on a regular basis.

    What is Terminal Restlessness or Agitation?

    Those who work with the dying know this type of restlessness or agitation almost immediately. However, the public and patient’s family may have no idea what is going on and often become quite alarmed at their loved one’s condition. What does it look like? Although it varies somewhat in each patient, there are common themes that are seen over and over again.

    Patients may be too weak to walk or stand, but they insist on getting up from the bed to the chair, or from the chair back to the bed. Whatever position they are in, they complain they are not comfortable and demand to change positions, even if pain is well managed. They may yell out using uncharacteristic language, sometimes angrily accusing others around them. They appear extremely agitated and may not be objective about their own condition. They may be hallucinating, having psychotic episodes and be totally out of control. At these times, the patient’s safety is seriously threatened.

    Some patients may demand to go to the hospital emergency room, even though there is nothing that can be done for them there. Some patients may insist that the police be called. that someone unseen is trying to harm them. Some patients may not recognize those around them, confusing them with other people. They may act as if they were living in the past, confronting an old enemy.

    Need to Eliminate Other Obvious Causes of Distress

    Just as in all symptoms, other causes must first be ruled out or eliminated. Nurses must make sure that the physician’s orders are being followed, that if any other symptoms are not well managed, the physician is contacted or adjustments are made in order to relieve those symptoms. Physicians and nurses must continually re-assess the patient’s total overall condition, monitoring every body system’s function. Checking vital signs including pain levels is a first step. Is the patient breathing effectively? Is oxygen being given if appropriate for the patient’s disease condition? Carefully evaluating, recording and reporting all outward signs must be habitual with those caring for the dying. Any changes must be understood, evaluated and responded to if appropriate.

    For example, patients experiencing intense pain may become agitated. The initial thought to use sedatives immediately might make sense if one is not thinking clearly: . the patient is agitated, I’ll use a sedative. However, that may be a very short-sighted and uneducated approach. Why? Because sedating the patient is not the first action to take. One must first determine what other causes might exist. When pain is severe, sedatives will not eliminate agitation! However, relieving the pain eliminates the agitation. On a more basic level, removing a hard object such as a syringe or catheter tubing that may have drifted underneath the patient may be all it takes to relieve the agitation. Common sense must first be applied!

    Questions to be asked

    The following are examples of questions that nurses and physicians ask themselves as they approach this problem:

    • Is there anything physically interfering with the patient’s comfort?
    • Does the patient have pain that is not being well-managed? Observing outward facial expressions and body posture are important to evaluate.
    • If the patient has a urinary catheter, is it patent (meaning open) and is urine flowing freely through it? If it is plugged, that could cause extreme pain from pressure in the bladder.
    • Is the patient having regular bowel movements? When was the last bowel movement and what consistency did it have? Could the patient be impacted (blocked)?
    • Is there some other sudden change in function that may be causing distress to the patient?
    • Is there an infection causing the agitation?
    • Is the infection an expected effect of the disease, such as brain cancer?
    • Is the patient going through obvious psychological and emotional distress? Has a counselor or minister’s services been offered to the patient and family? Is the restlessness purely psychological or is it metabolically based?
    • Has a new medication been added? Has a medication dosage been recently increased or decreased? Is this a side-effect from a medication?
    • Has the patient entered the pre-active phase of dying?

    Universal Metabolic Changes May Cause Restlessness and Agitation

    As the terminally ill near death, body organs and systems begin to fail to a greater and greater degree. Kidneys stop producing as much urine and function poorly, the liver and other organs also start to shut down. Waste products from the cells and tissues of the body begin to build up in the tissue spaces and blood stream. Biological and chemical balance is lost. The pH in the blood and other areas may change dramatically. In many patients, these changes alone may account for restlessness and agitation that may be quite severe.

    Medications for Terminal Restlessness and Agitation

    If, and only if, other obvious causes of restlessness and agitation have already been eliminated, then the physician may directly order medications to reduce the restlessness and agitation. In almost all cases, the physician will have written standing orders for certain medications to be given for these conditions. Such medications include anti-anxiety medications such as Lorazepam (Ativan) and Diazepam (Valium) and anti-psychotic medications such as Haloperidol (Haldol), Chlorpromazine HCl (Thorazine) and others.

    The nurse and physician must be extremely careful not to give a medication that might be contraindicated for the patient’s condition. It is not appropriate to give all patients Ativan and Morphine, for example, if they become agitated. It they are in pain, then pain medication is appropriate. If their pain is well-managed and they are still agitated, then the other medications may be applied. Certain disease conditions respond well to these medications while others have an opposite or no effect.

    Palliative care professionals need to be reading the latest journal articles and research in order to understand when and when not to use these medications. Any nurse or physician who always uses these medications with all patients who are agitated has more to learn about handling these situations.

    Palliative care varies according to the patient, the disease, the stage of the disease and the exact situation being encountered. Some believe that palliative care is less demanding than say, acute care in the hospital or intensive care. However, that is not the case. Excellent palliative care requires the same degree of professionalism as in other specialties in health care. Constant patient assessment and re-assessment are necessary.

    Knowledge of the latest treatment modalities and options is a sign of the very best palliative care has to offer. Knowledgeable palliative care professionals will be most effective in managing crisis situations such as terminal agitation. If crisis symptoms are not being well handled by staff at the bedside, it is paramount that the physician be consulted about the best course of action to comfort the patient and relieve his or her distress. Terminal agitation is a hospice crisis and meets the criteria for starting the continuous nursing care level of care. (See Continuous Nursing Care in Hospice ).

    How to Form a Professional LLC in Colorado #starting #an #llc #in

    How to Form a Professional LLC in Colorado

    As a licensed professional in Colorado you can structure your business as a Colorado professional limited liability company (PLLC). This will give you protection from several important types of liability. It also may provide certain tax advantages compared to other ways of structuring your business.

    What is a Colorado PLLC?

    A Colorado PLLC is a limited liability company (LLC) formed specifically by people who will provide Colorado licensed professional services. LLCs in general are businesses registered with the state that consist of one or more people called LLC members who own the business. Like other LLCs, PLLCs protect their individual members from people with claims for many (but not all) types of financial debts or personal injuries.

    Note: Unlike the majority of other states, Colorado s LLC Act doesn t include provisions specifically for LLCs that will provide professional services, nor is there a separate PLLC Act. Also unlike almost every other state, Colorado s corporation laws do not specifically include provisions for professional corporations (PCs). (A few other states largely base their rules for PLLCs on pre-existing PC laws.) Instead, the legal basis for PLLCs in Colorado as well as for other forms of so-called professional service entities derives from the state s various laws regulating professions and occupations (Title 12 of the Colorado Statutes).

    What is a Professional Service?

    Under Colorado s laws for professions and occupations, the following professionals would be considered to provide professional services:

    • certified public accountants
    • architects
    • chiropractors
    • dentists
    • engineers
    • land surveyors
    • lawyers
    • optometrists
    • physical therapists
    • physicians and surgeons
    • podiatrists
    • professional counselors, and
    • veterinarians.

    Anyone who is licensed to practice one of these professions in Colorado can form a Colorado PLLC. If you are licensed to practice another profession and want to form a PLLC, check with a local business attorney to see if the laws for that profession permit practitioners to form PLLCs.

    How Do I Form a Colorado PLLC?

    To form your Colorado PLLC you ll need to:

    • have the state licenses for professionals who will be a member of the company (licenses may be required for either some or all members depending on the profession)
    • check with the state licensing board for your profession to see if its prior approval is required, (and, if so, obtain the necessary documentation showing that approval), and
    • file articles of organization with the Colorado Secretary of State (SOS).

    You may also need to register your PLLC with the appropriate professional regulating agency after formation.

    The articles of organization must be filed electronically. You can, however, view and download a sample articles of organization form by going to the SOS website. Be aware that the statute governing your particular profession, or the regulating authority for your profession, may require that you include additional language in your articles of organization. For more information, check with the regulating agency or a local business attorney. The current filing fee is $50.

    Naming Restrictions

    In general, all Colorado LLCs, including PLLCs, must contain the term or abbreviation limited liability company , ltd. liability company , limited liability co. , ltd. liability co. , limited , l.l.c. , llc , or ltd. . The laws for your particular profession may impose additional restrictions on names. For additional important information on LLC names generally, check the Business Name, Location Licenses section of the Nolo website.

    Service and Membership Restrictions

    Service and membership restrictions on Colorado PLLCs can differ among the various professions. For example, if a PLLC provides CPA services, a majority of its members must be licensed certified public accountants in good standing in Colorado or another state. Moreover, the Colorado statute governing certified public accountants seems to state that PLLCs providing CPA services are not permitted to provide other kinds of services (with some exceptions). Check the statute for your particular profession or consult with a local business attorney for more details. Also, keep in mind that Colorado PLLCs and/or their members are subject to the regulation of the relevant state professional licensing authorities.

    Operating Agreement

    You should make sure you have an operating agreement for your PLLC. Unlike professional licenses, articles of organization, naming restrictions, and service restrictions, this is not a state requirement. However, it is important to have an operating agreement so that other members of the PLLC (if any), as well as outside companies and businesses (for example banks), know what the internal rules are for the company. Depending on your own level of knowledge and expertise, you should consider having a lawyer assist you in preparing this document.

    A PLLC Will Not Protect You From All Liability

    Forming your professional service business as a PLLC will protect you personally from:

    • creditors seeking to collect unpaid debts owed solely by the PLLC
    • liability for the malpractice of other PLLC members, and
    • people who are personally injured in connection with your PLLC because of things having nothing to do with your own professional malpractice or torts (for example, if someone slips and falls in your PLLC s offices).

    Regarding protection from liability for the malpractice of fellow PLLC members, be aware that, for some professions in some states, PLLC members are required to have a minimum amount of malpractice insurance before they are eligible for such protection. Therefore, it s always a good idea to double check your state s PLLC laws, as well as your state s rules for your particular profession, regarding minimum insurance requirements.

    Meanwhile, you are personally responsible if:

    • you personally guarantee repayment of a business loan
    • you engage in professional malpractice (such as completely botching a patient s treatment or egregiously mishandling a client s case), or
    • you intentionally or negligently commit a tort (such as assaulting someone).

    Because you are not protected from your own malpractice, you should make sure you have professional liability insurance and, if applicable, that your coverage meets any minimum insurance requirements.

    A PLLC is Different From a Professional Corporation

    A PLLC is not the same thing as a professional corporation (PC). A PLLC is a newer type of business entity than a PC. Here are some of the key differences:

    • a PLLC, like other LLCs, is comprised of members, but a PC, like other corporations, is comprised of shareholders
    • following from the previous point, PLLC ownership consists of so-called membership interests in the business, but PC ownership is based on shares of stock; and
    • a PLLC, like other LLCs, is a so-called pass-through tax entity, meaning that in most states (including Colorado) only the individual members have income tax obligations, while a PC, like other corporations, usually has its own income tax obligations.

    The tax differences between PLLCs and PCs can become complicated. For example, a PC can elect a special tax status (S corporation status ) that effectively makes it a pass-through tax entity like a PLLC. And, meanwhile, PCs that don t elect special status may be subject to double taxation in other words, both the PC itself and its shareholders may have to pay taxes on business income.

    Colorado allows professionals to form both PLLCs and PCs, and both PLLCs and PCs provide liability protection for, respectively, their members or shareholders. Because the protection is essentially the same for both PLLCs and PCs, but PLLCs are simpler to create and operate, many professionals prefer the PLLC structure.

    Additional Information

    For more information on the requirements for forming and operating an LLC in Colorado, such as those relating to annual reports and taxes, see Nolo s articles in 50-State Guide to Forming an LLC and 50-State Guide to Annual Report and Tax Filing Requirements for LLCs . along with the other articles on LLCs in the LLC section of the Nolo website.

    Code 3 vehicles are Code 1 or Code 2 vehicles that have been involved in an accident. Code 3 vehicles have to go through roadworthy to be licensed for road use.

    Is it worth it to buy a Code 3 vehicle?
    ‘Yes’, if the price is very low, and ‘No’ in that the cost of repairs plus the cost of the damaged car might be more than buying an equivalently aged, legal and on-the-road version of the same vehicle.

    Code 4 – Permanently Demolished

    A vehicle falls into this category when the chassis of the motor has been either compacted, compressed, melted, destroyed or damaged to such degree that it cannot be made roadworthy.

    If the damage has been restored or repaired a previously ‘unfit’ car completes a roadworthiness examination, it is then legally allowed to be driven again. Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible to insure a Code 3, but not for more than 60 or 70 percent of normal market value.
