HOSPICE CARE IN OUR INPATIENT UNIT
When you come to hospice
Patients in our Inpatient Unit, and their family and friends, are cared for by a team of specialist palliative care doctors and nurses. They also have access to the wider multi-professional Hospice team which includes counsellors, occupational therapist, a spiritual care worker and a social worker, cultural liaison workers, physiotherapy and lymphoedema therapy.
We protect all your information
People are right to expect that Mercy Hospice maintains records on its activities, the decisions that affect your health and we seek to do this to the highest standard
Records that we keep include information about your health and any care or treatment you have received. For example tests. Xray scan results, x-rays, clinic and assessment letters
All pt. records are stored electronically Having information on record allows health and social care professionals to work with one another more effectively, which supports us to look after you better.
The hospice will not share your personal health information with people, such as a relative or friend, without your permission.
Sometimes the law allows us to share your information without your permission, for example to investigate a serious crime or to protect a child.
If you are concerned about your information being shared please speak to a member of our staff.
