A trained hospice nurse is equipped to deal with any situation that may arise in the course of your care. They are adaptable and flexible, and react quickly to emergency situations. Hospice nurses work to maintain the patient’s comfort and quality of life as much as possible. They maintain compassionate communication between the patient, their family, and the attendant physicians. Nurses are instructed in high ethical standards that include seeking the patient’s consent for any treatment that is undertaken, and they are trained to alert the doctor when the patient’s physical condition changes.

At all times, your nurse will remain sympathetic and resilient, maintaining the physical and emotional stability required to face serious illness. At Westlake Village Hospice, you’re in good hands with our qualified, compassionate staff of nurses. Your comfort and happiness is our priority.
