I made a post over in General Nursing that made a huge uproar. The content was misinterpreted, they went off track with what i said, but it turned into a debate about Palliative vs. Hospice care. I very much prefer home hospice case managing vs. Homecare Palliative cases. No one seem to understand the difference and why I would have a preference for Hospice.
I am new to the field, 5 months in with a homecare company and I work int he Hospice section which also does the palliative Medicare cases. I was told my job was going to be "a little bit of the palliative cases, but mostly hospice case managing and it's quite the opposite, due to a few reasons.
Does anyone else prefer to be strictly a hospice case manager, seeing them through end-of life care with the goal of a peaceful death at home? Or is there something wrong with me because I prefer that and don't see them as the same thing?
