    If they can sit in the chair with assistance with transfers, then no, I wouldn't. But that's from my experience in critical care. Haven't started my hospice job yet.

    For a patient to be considered as bed-bound category he or she can't be assist to the chair or out of the bed. They basically they are total care.

    Use the palliative performance score rather than a designation of bedbound. It provides a clearer picture of the functional status of the patient.
