Sacred Heart Hospice Care Arizona - Medical Team

Our Medical Team Provides

A comprehensive and responsive form of care, benefiting both patients and families.


Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) at Sacred Heart Hospice

No one person can provide for all the needs of hospice patients and their families. Care is provided by a team of people with different specialties working together, known as the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT). This provides a comprehensive and responsive form of care, benefiting both patients in need of assisted living and their families. The IDT consists of the following people: 

Attending Physician: The patient's regular physician, also known as the Attending Physician, is a key member of the Hospice team. The Attending Physician assumes responsibility for medical management of the patient's treatment throughout his or her involvement in the Sacred Heart Hospice program.   If the patient does not have an attending physician, the Sacred Heart Hospice Medical Director will assume responsibility for medial management.

Medical Director: The Medical Director is Sacred Heart Hospice’s staff physician.  The Medical Director works with the other multidisciplinary professionals on the staff and the patient's attending physician to provide added expertise for the care of the patient and family. The Medical Director may also manage the patient's care in the absence of an Attending Physician. 

Clinical Manager: The Clinical Manager is the team's leader who oversees the care provided by the team and schedules team member visits with families. 

Nursing Staff: The Registered Nurse (RN) visits each patient's home and performs regular assessments. He/she is responsible for coordinating the overall care provided to the patient. Working closely with the RN, the team Certified Nursing Assistant (CAN) regularly visits to provide patient care. The number of times a nurse visits a patient depends on the patient's needs. 

Social Worker: The Social Worker provides counseling and support to patients in need of assisted living, families and/or survivor to assist them with questions and concerns related to the death and dying process.   The Social Worker also assists survivors through the bereavement process.

Certified Nursing Assistants: Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) are available to provide bathing, shampoos and other types of personal care to patients. CNA may also prepare small meals or provide basic tidying services during their visits that would benefit patients and caregivers. The frequency of CNA visits is based on the needs of the patient and family. 

Spiritual Counseling: A hospice chaplain is available to assist patients and families with spiritual or religious matters and consult with community clergy. 

Volunteers: Patient/family care volunteers are trained to provide emotional support and companionship to patients and their families. They also provide short-term respite for primary caregivers and family members, as well as practical help such as running errands.
