MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care

Mission Statement

MJHS Hospice is committed to the highest standard of quality care and seeks to be the premier provider of health services ensuring access to health and support to the greater New York City area.

Description

MJHS has one of the largest and most respected not-for-profit hospice programs in the region, offering hospice patients care when and where they need it: at home, in assisted living communities, nursing homes and hospitals across Greater New York. MJHS helps adult and pediatric patients and their families live life to the fullest when dealing with a life-limiting illness by easing suffering, upholding dignity, affirming values and improving quality of life. As a charitable not-for-profit, MJHS is committed to delivering compassionate expert care, offering peace of mind and providing comfort. For more information, visit www.mjhshospice.org or call (212) 649-5555.

MJHS was founded in 1907 by The Four Brooklyn Ladies, who looked into the eyes of the old and sick–people in desperate need of loving kindness–and founded the Brooklyn Ladies Hebrew Home for the Aged. With the help of charitable support, the home provided poor, elderly members of the community with quality health care and a home where they could spend their final days. From that small building among the tenements, MJHS has become one of the most expansive, charitable not-for-profit health systems in the region offering home care, pediatric and adult hospice, pediatric and adult palliative care, centers for rehabilitation and nursing care, as well as adult day health care, and health plans for Medicare, Medicaid and Dual Eligible beneficiaries (Elderplan Medicare Advantage Plans and HomeFirst MLTCP) in Greater New York. Many of the programs and services are supported, in part, by MJHS Foundation. For more information, visit www.mjhs.org. www.facebook.com/MJHS01. www.twitter.com/MJHS01 or call 1-855-692-5058.

Hospice Palliative Care

MJHS Hospice is the largest Hospice and Palliative Care program in New York State and the largest Jewish Hospice in the region.

Our groundbreaking hospice and palliative care program offers a significant difference in end-of-life care for all New Yorkers. As part of this commitment, we have created specialty programs to serve pediatric and clinically complex patients, as well as Jewish and Asian patients who benefit from our truly unique, culturally specific, end-of-life care.

We have a deep and abiding belief that the end-of-life is still life, and no time to stop living. While it is certainly a time of great physical and emotional challenge, it can also be a profoundly meaningful and rewarding experience.

Multidisciplinary teams offer state-of-the-art, individualized, end-of-life and palliative care services to patients and family members who reside at home or in an assisted living community, skilled nursing facilities and hospitals. Last year, two independent surveys conducted by the Department of Health and Joint Commission awarded MJHS Hospice the highest possible rating, with no recommendations for improvement—a rare distinction.

Free Continuing Education Credit for Palliative Care Topics (aka MJHS Palliative Webinar

by Russell K. Portenoy, MD

(Sometimes a simple idea comes along and while revolutionary, you sit there thinking, why didn’t I do that? Many organizations and academic departments have great content experts, probably lecturing to learners every week. But who among us have consistently made these available for free online, in addition to providing free CE credits. We all have access to those tools, but someone did it first and with a year long commitment to teaching. Pallimed asked Dr. Russell Portenoy to explain the origins of a simple yet innovative project, the MJHS palliative care webinar series. Maybe we could see this replicated in other places? – Ed.)

I am grateful to Christian Sinclair for the opportunity to write about the decision to create a new webinar series for those interested in palliative care and to structure in a way that, hopefully, ensures broad access. The back story begins with a decision I made recently to leave the hospital setting, where I had worked for 30 years, to assume a clinical and academic role in a corporation is solely focused on community-based care. MJHS is a large health system in New York, and I had been working part-time for several years in one of its units MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care. The latter organization maintains a large hospice program and several cutting-edge, community-based palliative care programs.

In 2014, the MJHS corporate board made a strong commitment to grow high quality hospice and palliative care programs, and concurrently decided to create a new not-for-profit entity that would pursue academic initiatives in palliative care, including inter-professional training programs, clinical research, and quality management. In mid-June, I became the first Executive Director of the new MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care and assumed a full-time role as Chief Medical Officer of MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care. Almost immediately, I was joined in the Institute by 10 doctoral level professionals, including experts in education and instructional design, research, and quality.

We have hit the ground running, and are particularly pleased with the decision to create a new online inter-professional webinar series as one of our first projects. Underwritten by a small grant, the series will show 21 live webinars during the first year, approximately one broadcast every two weeks. The topics are relevant to the entire interdisciplinary team.

After each presentation, the webinars are posted online for one year, and both the live and archived webinars will provide continuing education credits to physicians, nurses and social workers. There is no charge for attendance at the live webinar or access to an archived installment. The creation of high-quality education with a low barrier to entry is consistent with the mission of the new MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care. Through our email reminders to potential attendees, we have started building our own community (contact us at www.mjhspalliativeinstitute.org to get on the email list). We are looking forward to many more contributions and collaborations of this type.

Russell Portenoy, MD is the Executive Director of the MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care, and the CMO of MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care. He is also a professor of Neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and editor of the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management.

MJHS Hospice Palliative Care

My father died of colon cancer in 2009, he spent his last few days in this hospice and they treated him like an animal.
They nurses and attendants were ruse, unpleasant, non caring and had not compassion.
under the treatment of Doctor Yiquing Xu in Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn NY.
My father was 64 years old when he dies of cancer, he had a short battle with cancer and only lived months. We were approached by on the Hospice reps at the Maimonides hospital, my father was in great pain, and in a disgusting room in Maimonides, so when the rep said they would provide home care or hospice care and manage his pain, I thought it would be great.
I asked for the rep to make sure his insurance covered the home care and hospice care, he reassured me and said they would.
My sick and dying father did not trust him and said he was a like a car sales man, and my beloved father turned out to be right. We got billed and hassled by them to pay for in-home care because they later (covnetly0 discovered that his insurance did not cover it.

They prescribed tons of medication which were very confusing that we were supposed to give him, we could not manage his care at home so we asked Met Jewish Hospice to admit him, this was a very hard decision for us to make and we wanted his last days to be spend being comfortable and pain. He spent his last few days at the hospice, which was depressing and horrible.
The addendnents and nurses all had bad attitudes, they had no compassion or care, they tied up my father to a chair one night like a prisoner and kept him in the hall, like, because the nurse and attendant could not be bothered by the noises he was making. The man was dying, but the stupid staff did to care.
I wish we had never ever admitted him there or even believed a word the rep said.

My father had home hospice, and the service by MJHS was so very awful and inhumane, we had to hire someone privately. Their care packages and medication arrived at least one day after he was home. He could not swallow, and they continued to send oral meds. The aid was scheduled to come a week after he arrived home, when we all knew he only had days left. They never got there. The phone contact was not at all helpful, and, in short, the care was not care at all. It was absolutely inhumane. If my 81 year old mother could not afford to hire help, which is what we were forced to do, my father would have died with open sores, laying in his own feces. This place should be closed down. Shame on them. (PS: The day AFTER their nurse came to pronounce him, we received a shipment of morphine and a phone call asking how my father was doing and if we needed an aid.)
