Ranked by number of full-time employees. * Hospice provides intermittent medical and physical care for the terminally ill. It also provides emotional and spiritual care for the patient and family. Hospice trains the family to be the primary caregiver, and then it takes a supportive care role in keeping the patient pain- and symptom-free without hastening or hindering the natural course of the disease. It is required to provide durable medical equipment, pharmaceutical and medical supplies and volunteers. Funding is available through Medicare/Medicaid. 1 Hospices are required to have a contractual agreement that allows the use of hospital facilities. Anyone can refer. 2Ozark Mountain Hospice is funded solely through donations and fund raisers. Its board has advisory medical doctors, and volunteers offer the primary caregiver supplemental help in caring for the patient. Free transportation to area hospitals and medical equipment (i.e. wheelchairs, beds) are donated to patients. [[In-content Ad]]
