Passages works directly with physicians to build lasting relationships

The Admission Process

  1. The physician provides the patient's name, address, age, present location, diagnosis, and estimated prognosis and suggest the family have an informational meeting with the hospice staff. 
  2. Then one of our Hospice and Palliative Liaisons will visit the patient and family to assess immediate needs, recommend an initial plan of care and obtain the patient's informed consent. 
  3. Hospice care can begin as soon as a workable plan is agreed on by patient and hospice.
