Hospice caregivers and nurses providing palliative care services to chronically ill or terminally ill patients have to better understand the needs of their charges so they can provide the appropriate end-of-life services. By learning about their patients, hospice workers can offer medical, emotional, psychological and spiritual support so their patients are comfortable and happy during this time in their lives.
The hospice initial pain assessment form allows hospice workers to gather important medical, psychological and behavioral information during the first meeting. With this information, a care plan can be created that specifically fits into each patient's needs.
Our mobile hospice initial pain assessment form can be used by hospice caregivers, nurses and other medical professionals when they obtain a new patient that will be under their care. They can gather information about medical conditions, mobility issues, medications, the patient's mental and behavioral state, and other related hospice care data. By obtaining this information, hospice workers can perform an initial pain assessment and document services that were provided during this first visit.
The hospice initial pain assessment form can be used on any mobile device such as a smartphone, iPhone, iPad or tablet device. We have incorporated these categories fields into our template:
- Administrative information
- Level of provided care
- Time in/out
- Topics that will be discussed with patient during initial visit
- Patient diagnosis
- Spiritual need intervention
- Living arrangements
- Sensory status
- Pain screening
- Respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, gastrointestinal and integumentary status
- Psychological, emotional, mental and behavioral status
- Permitted activities
- Goals and outcomes of hospice care
