Palliative questions..


  • Specializes in Geriatrics, Med-Surg..

I have only seen a couple deaths so far so I am wondering what the earliest signs are. I am aware of what it is like when it is well established but I still don't feel like it is easy to tell when a patient is starting to decline. Thanks for any responses.

Oh forgot, at the hospicepatients site, mid way down there is a link that says Main Topics, click on it and you will get a long list of info on standards of care, end stage signs and symptoms.

I hope this helps!
