Hospice Patients Alliance – Physicians, nurses and other staff patient advocates? #motels

#advocate hospice

PHYSICIANS, NURSES AND OTHER STAFF:
ADVOCATES FOR YOUR WELFARE?

When any individual seeks health care, he expects that the physicians, nurses, social workers and other professionals will provide the very best of care in accordance with the most modern standards in the health care industry. Whether it is surgery or medical management of a disease, the expectation never changes. Most people trust their physician and the nurses who care for them. They trust their counselors and therapists. Health care professionals are quite often perceived as quite dedicated individuals who do their very best in caring for their patients.

Hospice is no different from any other aspect of the health care industry in terms of the degree of competence and integrity that is expected by the general public. However, hospice patients and their families are less likely to know when they’re being exploited, because it is less likely that they would know about the standards of care for end-of-life care. Even if they do know the standards, hospice patients and their families are less likely to complain, because of their fatigue, the overwhelming intensity of involvement in caring for their loved one (often around the clock), and their intense grief.

Physicians, nurses, social workers, professional counselors and therapists are licensed in each State to provide health care services. Each State has standards of care for all health care professionals, and each professional organization has published its own Code of Ethics and standards of care. Any licensed health care professional has a duty under the law to maintain professional competence, abide by the Code of Ethics, and actually provide care that meets the standards of care. Most health care professionals take pride in being competent at their work, staying up-to-date, and doing the best for their patient. There is a natural bond between health care professionals and their patients. Many will fight for their patients to protect the patients’ interests. That is what patients expect and what they often receive.

However, with the changes in the health care industry, constantly rising costs of providing services, and stiff competition among health care agencies, hospitals, nursing homes, and hospices, the business of running a health care agency or hospice has taken over in terms of controlling what directives management gives to its staff. No longer can you safely assume that the agency or hospice will necessarily do what’s right or according to the standard of care. Cutting corners has become commonplace in health care. This places terrible strain on the health care staff, who are pulled in mutually exclusive directions by their different obligations under their license and to their employer.

Health care professionals’ first obligation under the law and their license is to the patient: to abide by the Code of Ethics for their profession, maintain professional competence and actually provide the care that meets the standards of care for their line of work. The second obligation health care professionals may feel heavily weighing on their shoulders is to their employer; if the employer directs the health care professional to violate the standards of care (in order to save the employer money), he or she must choose between pleasing the employer (and keeping a job) and doing what’s right for the patient.

Physicians, nurses, social workers and others routinely confront these conflicting obligations and try to find a compromise between the two that is acceptable to both obligations. However, when the policy of the employer is clearly in violation of the standards, the health care professional must choose between right and wrong. There is no middle ground when health care fraud is directed and intentionally committed at the administrative level.

Hospice is fertile ground for health care fraud. There are many ways of exploiting the patients, families and the reimbursement source, whether Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, or the patients and families own money. Federal investigators have struggled with attempting to stop the flood of health care fraud violations occurring. When the U.S. Office of Inspector General started its Fraud Hotline, they were flooded with thousands of calls about health care fraud. Some career criminals have even been quoted as saying that it was easier to make fortunes defrauding Medicare than through the sales of illegal drugs.

If you are receiving care from health care professionals, you can expect that most of them are very dedicated, and honest individuals. That does not mean that fraud might not occur. Some honest individuals do not have the courage to fight the system and simply decide to choose to ignore violations which are occurring, trying to stay uninvolved and just do their jobs. The financial incentive to the agency/health care institution is to commit fraud in order to bolster their bottom line. The financial incentive to the health care professional to keep quiet arises out of their need to keep their paycheck coming to support their family. Challenging one’s employer’s policies is a sure method of becoming very unpopular at work. Management does not look favorably on employees who expose their white-collar crime! Even co-employees may avoid a health care professional who makes a complaint against the employer. they simply don’t want to have their own jobs threatened.

For the hospice patient and families, you can expect that some of the physicians, nurses, social workers or other staff will definitely speak up on your behalf if they think that improper decisions regarding health care occurring. The best thing you can do to help these health care professionals is to listen closely to what they may say to you. Remember their comments if any problem arises, if you are having difficulty getting proper services. By listening to what some of the hospice staff may tell you, you can glean extremely important clues to what you should be receiving, but may not be receiving. or you may learn of problems which you did not even know existed.

Remember, if you don’t know the standards in hospice, how can you know when you’re being exploited? If you determine that any of the services you are receiving are inadequate or improper, your complaint directly made to the hospice management will be much more powerful than any complaint made by an employee. If you have questions about the care being provided, ask one of the staff who you seem to have a stronger, closer relationship, who you trust. If you’re still unsure, you can contact other hospices, health care professionals you may know or call us at the Hospice Patients Alliance.

While all health care professionals are required to be advocates for the patients under their care, the reality is that some health care professionals choose to look the other way and keep quiet, to save their own job. Health care fraud, under-serving patients and outright violations of standards of care does occur. You can help stop it from continuing by listening closely to the staff you meet, by learning as much as you can about the standards of care (that’s one of the reasons for the Hospice Patients Alliance. to help inform you and protect you), read the contracts and literature provided by the hospice, and be willing to ask probing questions of the hospice staff who work with you. Some hospice staff do not know the full meaning of the standards of care and have been misled by their hospice employers. If you have doubts about what you are told, look up the law for yourself in the Section on Federal Laws Governing Hospice: the Uniform Standards of Care. We will be happy to explain the standards to you if you call.





Dr John Smith: Cransley Hospice staff can hold their heads up high

Dr John Smith: Cransley Hospice staff can hold their heads up high

Our heads go down and we mutter something like “it was nothing, anyone could have done it”.

That may be the case, but it generally isn’t, for we have made the choice to care about someone, when others might have walked away.

So it’s heads up and a big thank you for saying that.

This week it happened to me. I hadn’t seen the lady for 16 years when she said “hello”. To be honest I could not recognise her and said so. No worries because it was a long time ago when her mum was a patient in the hospice. Sixteen years on and she wanted to thank me for the care that was given.

She hadn’t forgotten and did not want to forget. What was a difficult time became a good time, and out of that time came even more good because some time later she began to work in the hospice too. It made sense of the tragedy and the memories that she has are good ones. There are no regrets.

The word hospice literally means a resting place on a journey. In the sense that we use it today the journey is coming to an end.

To rest we need support and good symptom control, to rest we need to know that our family and friends are being cared for, to rest we need people to listen to us, to hear our fears, to hear us say thank you for the life that we have been given and, yes, to be able to express our regrets for what we have struggled with, for the wrongs we may have done, to seek forgiveness and to be forgiven.

Hospice is often the place where we begin to make sense of our lives, a sort of summing up of what we have been, what we are and what we mean to others.

It is when this happens that people express their thanks. And it is not a transitory thank you either, it is almost lifelong. Yes, I can hold my head up high and Cransley Hospice and its staff should too.

Harold Brown visiting for book signing August 22

Dr. Harold Brown, former Vice President for Academic Affairs, will be visiting Columbus State on August 22 with his new book “Keep Your Airspeed Up: The Story of a Tuskegee Airman.”

Brown, 93, retired from then-Columbus Technical Institute in 1986, and has kept up an active schedule running an educational consulting firm, writing, and touring the country as one of the few remaining members of the elite group of African-American U.S. Air Force pilots who made up the famous Tuskegee Airmen.

From 1942, until he was shot down over Germany and taken prisoner in 1945, Brown was a fighter pilot in the Red Tails unit, escorting B-24 bombers flying out of Italy in raids over Germany.

After the war, Brown earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Ohio University, followed by a master’s and doctorate. He joined CTI in 1974 as an instructor, and was made vice president by the “other” Harold, Dr. Harold Nestor, soon afterward. Together they increased the enrollment of CTI four-fold, and started the college on its path to become a comprehensive community college in 1987.

Dr. Brown’s book is on sale now on Amazon, and he is visiting for a speech and book signing on Tuesday, August 22 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The event will be held in the WD 4th floor lobby and the West section of the Ballroom.

    Our heads go down and we mutter something like “it was nothing, anyone could have done it”.

    That may be the case, but it generally isn’t, for we have made the choice to care about someone, when others might have walked away.

    So it’s heads up and a big thank you for saying that.

    This week it happened to me. I hadn’t seen the lady for 16 years when she said “hello”. To be honest I could not recognise her and said so. No worries because it was a long time ago when her mum was a patient in the hospice. Sixteen years on and she wanted to thank me for the care that was given.

    She hadn’t forgotten and did not want to forget. What was a difficult time became a good time, and out of that time came even more good because some time later she began to work in the hospice too. It made sense of the tragedy and the memories that she has are good ones. There are no regrets.

    The word hospice literally means a resting place on a journey. In the sense that we use it today the journey is coming to an end.

    To rest we need support and good symptom control, to rest we need to know that our family and friends are being cared for, to rest we need people to listen to us, to hear our fears, to hear us say thank you for the life that we have been given and, yes, to be able to express our regrets for what we have struggled with, for the wrongs we may have done, to seek forgiveness and to be forgiven.

    Hospice is often the place where we begin to make sense of our lives, a sort of summing up of what we have been, what we are and what we mean to others.

    It is when this happens that people express their thanks. And it is not a transitory thank you either, it is almost lifelong. Yes, I can hold my head up high and Cransley Hospice and its staff should too.

    Bishop Daly was a ‘gift’ to us: Foyle Hospice staff

    20:51 Thursday 11th of August 2016

    Staff from the Foyle Hospice in Derry formed a guard of honour at today’s funeral of the late Bishop Edward Daly.

    Prior to the service, they spoke of their sorrow at the sad loss of the man they described as a ‘gift’ to the charity.

    One of the places Dr Daly’s death will be most keenly felt is the Foyle Hospice, where he served as chaplain after his retirement due to ill health in 1994.

    He remained in the role for 12 years, and said his last Mass at the Hospice in February of this year.

    Staff members, many of whom grew to be close friends of Dr Daly, recalled the special relationship they had with him, and the happiness and strength he brought to the Hospice over the years.

    Teresa McGowan, Clinical Nurse Manager, Day Hospice, first met Dr Daly when she tended him while he was all and she was working as a student nurse in Altnagelvin Hospital in 1974.

    She said that in his work with the Hospice, Dr Daly had given staff and patients a ‘special gift’ that was his quiet strength and compassion, which she said in turn gave them the courage to get through even the darkest to times.

    “I worked with Bishop Daly since he started with the Hospice, which was 24 years ago, when I was in the in-patient unit as a nurse,” she said.

    “I spent so much time with him, and I think no one really knows what he did for the patients and the families here.

    “His compassion and care of children was just great. We had a young gentleman dying in here, and I was nursing him, and I remember going to the drawer, and there was sweets in the drawer, but I hadn’t seen anyone come in.

    “So I asked him where did the sweets come from, and he said Bishop Daly brings them in every day for the children.

    “Bishop Daly never told anybody, and that was the kind of man he was, bringing packets of Pastilles every day, just very kind.

    “Whenever we were stressed out, just with the emotions of the job, he’d be there for you.

    “He was walking past me in the corridor one day, and said ‘Teresa, that’s for you’, and he gave me a wee bar of Dairy Milk.

    “No words had to be passed, you just knew he was there for you.

    “He was always a very calming influence in the Hospice, and when people were at the end, he made it very peaceful, and it was just beautiful to see people dying with dignity and love, with the Bishop sitting at the bedside, and you just felt that the patients peacefully drifting away to wherever it was they were to go.”

    She added: “He was the pastoral care in the day hospice for 12 years, he came on a Wednesday, and, we would all have been blessed along with the patients, and that is something that has really helped me through my life.

    “The gift of the patients having the blessing was fantastic, but he didn’t realise he was also giving us a gift every week, to keep us strong in our work.”

    “People talk about people they admire in the world, but to me the two top men in the world I admire more than anyone would be Dr McGinley and Dr Daly. They just inspire me, and the staff here would be the same, Dr McGinley delivering the care that he did, and the spiritual care that Bishop Daly delivered.”

    Teresa added: “The one thing we always knew was that Bishop Daly was there for us. There were situations over the years which were very difficult, and he would just say ‘It’s okay Teresa, it’s all right’, he would always support us.”

    Teresa added that she last spoke to Dr Daly three weeks ago, adding that she was proud to have known him since their first meeting 42 years ago.

    “When I first met him in 1974 I was so shy, but I was so glad that he came back into my life when he came to the Hospice and has been in it ever since,” she added.

    “To have had all this time with him has been amazing.

    “He was a gift to all of us.”

    Meanwhile, Margaret Taylor, who works as a cook in the Hospice recalled a man with a ‘big personality’ who always had a bit of craic for the staff.

    “He was just a fantastic asset to have in the Hospice,” she said, “he was just such a big personality in the place.”

    “And that’s not just from the point of view of a spiritual side, but as a person, a priest and a man.

    “He was a beautiful person in every way and you would see families coming in here distraught, and he just had that way of calming them and putting them at ease.

    “Bishop Daly just always had that same calm temperament, I never seen him any other way, always caring, kind and giving.

    “He was always supportive of the staff, because it can be quite difficult at times working here.”

    She added: “It’s just so sad, and it’s hard to believe he’ll never be back here.”

    Aine Downey, who works alongside Maggie, and whose son was cared for at the Hospice, echoed her comments.

    “He was very good with the young ones too,” she added.

    “I think it’s important to get that across, because it can be more difficult when it’s a young person.”

    Maggie also spoke of the funny side of Dr Daly, who she described as the ‘best of craic’.

    “Down in the unit one day I set the microwave on fire, and the fire alarm went off when Bishop Daly was saying the Mass on Sunday.

    “They were singing ‘Panis Angelicus’ at the time, and I just remember the Bishop running through the corridor with his big green robe on, and he came up to me and said, ‘Maggie, that was Panic Angelicus’,” she added.

    Michelle McGinn, Business and Schools Community Fundraiser with the Foyle Hospice, added that Dr Daly was a ‘beacon of hope’ for those in the Hospice.

    “I’ve been here eight years and Bishop Daly was part of the furniture at the Hospice, always there with a ready smile, for the staff, the patients and their families,” she said.

    “He was just a really lovely, gentle person and you just felt special in his company.

    “The families that use our service always mention his name, he was a beacon of hope and joy for the families of patients here and will be terribly missed.”

    Spotlight Testimonials on Wilf Campus NJ

    The patient was lying in his bed with his adult daughters and son sitting close by. His wife was sitting awkwardly at bedside holding his hand. Family members were comforting each other as the patient was actively dying. There were no signs and symptoms of pain or distress and the patient appeared comfortable and aware of the presence of his family.

    However, his wife appeared anxious and agitated while holding his hand. I asked her if she’d be more comfortable lying in the bed with her husband. “Can I do that?” she asked. I encouraged her to crawl into the bed and helped her to embrace her husband. She appeared instantly relaxed, hugged him and began talking to him as if they were alone in the room. She eloquently professed her undying love for him and she prayed with him. The children began crying.

    Spontaneously, she told him that she’d like to “renew our [wedding] vows.” She then did so.

    A few moments later the patient stopped breathing. The room was completely silent.

    The wife turned to me and said “how can I ever thank you for that?”

    Spotlight Testimonials on Wilf Campus NJ

    The patient was lying in his bed with his adult daughters and son sitting close by. His wife was sitting awkwardly at bedside holding his hand. Family members were comforting each other as the patient was actively dying. There were no signs and symptoms of pain or distress and the patient appeared comfortable and aware of the presence of his family.

    However, his wife appeared anxious and agitated while holding his hand. I asked her if she’d be more comfortable lying in the bed with her husband. “Can I do that?” she asked. I encouraged her to crawl into the bed and helped her to embrace her husband. She appeared instantly relaxed, hugged him and began talking to him as if they were alone in the room. She eloquently professed her undying love for him and she prayed with him. The children began crying.

    Spontaneously, she told him that she’d like to “renew our [wedding] vows.” She then did so.

    A few moments later the patient stopped breathing. The room was completely silent.

    The wife turned to me and said “how can I ever thank you for that?”
