Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Hospice nursing is a wonderful field. For some it is a calling, a spiritual path, a journey. What hospice nurses actually do is somewhat determined by the agency or organization that you work with. For instance, in some hospices the RNs may carry a significant medication kit that includes medications that would commonly be used to control symptoms at end of life including oral and injectable opioids. Other hospices use only the medications that they have provided in the patient/client home. Some hospice medical directors provide very detailed algorythms for medication adjustment in standing orders which allows great autonomy for the professional clinician in the field. Being an aide in the hospice environment I would ensure that all patients follow and keep diet requirements as instructed by the doctors to facilitate quick recovery
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
please read the questions over twice, its asking what would you as a dietary aide bring to the table not what doctors or RNs would bring to the table, nor is it asking you about how great or wonderful the hospice field is, or asking to describe what some hospice employees do. approaching the question in almost like a persuasive manner your trying to persuade the hiring manager to hire you as a dietary aide to work in their facility
