Patient-Centered Care in Los Angeles
Providing Medical Relief to Those in Los Angeles County
Over the mass incorporation of patient-centered care in medical facilities across the country, the term perhaps has lost its true meaning. While it is always meant to describe medical care that is centered on the individual patient, it tends to address medical concerns alone and ignore several other factors that equate to full, patient-centered care.
At Mid-Valley Hospice, our healthcare professionals deliver patient-centered care that addresses the crucial needs of our individual patients. Largely based on Picker’s Eight Principles of Patient-Centered Care, our team provides a truly meaningful patient experience, from physical comfort to emotional support and everywhere in between.
Eight Key Factors to Valuable, Patient-Centered Care
The goal with this method of care is to provide healthcare that addresses several other aspects largely ignored by conventional medicine, including compassion and helpful information. Overall, the method is designed to produce a meaningful and valuable patient experience.
Our staff addresses the following concepts to provide patient-centered care:
- Respect for Patients’ Preferences
- Coordination and Integration of Care
- Information and Education
- Physical Comfort
- Emotional Support
- Involvement of Family and Friends
- Continuity and Transition
- Access to Care
Those in need of hospice care usually are facing very worrisome conditions that cause anxiety, confusion, and the feeling of loneliness. The goal is to make sure that patient-centered care can improve a patient's quality of life and ease the path for both the patient and family towards the end of life. Our care is designed to alleviate those stresses, deliver helpful information, and provide comfort in many ancillary regards in conjunction with medicine.
