Durable Medical Equipment and Supplies

Hospice covers Durable Medical Equipment and supplies related to your hospice diagnosis. This includes items like wheelchairs, hospital beds, diapers, oxygen and wound care supplies.

Medications

The hospice nurse will obtain an order for your medications from the physician. Heart of Hospice has a contracted pharmacy that provides the medicines related to your primary diagnosis and are included in the hospice formulary. The nurse will review the medication supply with you on visits to ensure you have the medications needed. Your hospice team members will work with you to individualize interventions to effectively manage symptoms. Interventions may include medications or other treatments to decrease pain, manage symptoms of infection, alleviate constipation, improve sleep patterns, and help to improve your overall comfort.

Treatments

The Hospice benefit also covers physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, radiation, infusion therapy and other comforting treatments if they are included in the plan of care and approved by the physician.
