Healthcare Heroes Work Here
May is Nurses Month • Send a Positive Note
We wouldn’t be able to impact our communities without the skill, dedication, and heart of our clinicians. One component of our clinical team includes the nursing staff. During the current healthcare climate, they’ve faced obstacles and overcome them with the patients’ well-being in their hearts. We are encouraging you to send supportive cards, notes, or photos to the team.

Hospice of Southern Illinois’ approach is multi-disciplinary and includes physicians, pharmacist, nurse practitioners, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, bereavement counselors and volunteers who, together, form a support team around each patient. We address issues most important to the patients’ wants and needs at the end of their life while focusing on improving the individual’s quality of life.
Nursing care services include assessment and management of pain and symptoms as well as personal care. Hospice of Southern Illinois nurses are trained to evaluate pain and symptoms and to provide services that alleviate the suffering associated with terminal illness. Nurses and hospice aides provide patient and family education on caregiving and end-of-life issues. Hospice of Southern Illinois nurses make regularly-scheduled visits to patients. Support by the Hospice of Southern Illinois team is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
