Team Orientation

Tuesday night we had our first hospice team orientation! This was the first time everyone met – and goodness do we have a great team!

During the round of introductions, each person also shared something that made them happy this past week. Stories of hikes, visiting the farmer’s market, and helping elementary students were some of the activities that our team really enjoyed.

The rest of orientation included a general discussion of the hospice philosophy, what hospice care looks like in practice, and an in-service on infection control. A few good jokes were included for good measure, including this comic:

As the State gradually reviews our hospice license, know that we’re working hard in the meantime to be prepared to serve the community with excellence as soon as we can!

Progress with the State License

Last week we were able to contact the representatives reviewing our State License application and learned that our paperwork looked good! Next-up: an on-site visit to inspect our office and documents next month! Soon after, the observations from the visit are reviewed and we hope to begin serving patients as early as June or July. Stay posted!
