From telephonic guidance to real-time clinical support, you need a hospice provider who’s always available.Is Your Patient Hospice-Eligible?
When your patient is ready to choose the comfort of hospice over curative treatment, you want assurance that they’ll have the same level of support they’ve come to expect from you.
VITAS is available any time of day, evening or middle of the night, all year long–even on holidays and weekends. Whether your patient’s symptoms have flared up on Christmas Eve, or you’re ready to transition a patient from the hospital to hospice at 2 a.m., our team of clinicians is ready to help whenever you need us.
When you refer to VITAS, you can trust our clinicians to answer any questions your patient, their family or caregiver may have. Symptoms do not adhere to a 9-to-5 schedule, and neither does our team.
When necessary, a VITAS clinician can respond in-person to triage, address and stabilize a symptomatic patient–even those requiring high-acuity care. Our 24/7 availability helps avoid 911 calls, ED visits and rehospitalization. This keeps your institution’s quality metrics high while reducing lengths of stay and readmission rates.
Are you finding while on late-night, early morning or middle of the afternoon rounds that your patient could benefit from hospice? Don’t hesitate to contact us. Powered by a secure, digital referral platform, VITAS typically responds to referral requests in under 15 minutes, regardless of day or time.
Our admissions experts are ready to meet you and your patient wherever you are, or wherever they are. Our secure, mobile app makes referrals even easier for on-the-go clinical professionals and hospital staff.
We wanted to move my wife home from the hospital. We turned to the VITAS organization associated with the Sentra Hospital, Woodbridge, Va. The contacts were in the hospital, so discussing the services VITAS provides was very easy. Once the decision to move my wife from the hospital, VITAS literally took it from there. The hospital contacts keep me informed. Transportation, the bed in our home, home health aides and nurses were all arranged.- Bing H., Virginia
VITAS hospice staff took care of my Dad in his final hours. From the first coordinator who met us at the hospital, to the last nurse that was with him... everyone was wonderful. They addressed every concern and took care of everything for us, so we could concentrate on our remaining time with my Dad. I highly recommend their hospice service, in the unfortunate instance you would ever need them.- Christine L., Florida
