The Life of a Hospice Physician
A hospice physician's job is to ensure that patients spend their last days, months or years in comfort. Hospice physicians have the flexibility to spend as much time with each patient as they need.
Dr. Steven Kanner, a VITAS hospice physician, might see seven to 10 patients on a typical day. He generally has about 60 patients under his care and visits patients on a monthly basis unless they are on continuous care, in which case he sees them more often.
“My job is make the end of someone’s life comfortable both spiritually and physically,” he says. “Death is a process everybody on earth has to go through. Everyone deserves to die well. My job is to make sure that happens.”
