Inpatient Palliative Care

Inpatient Palliative Care works with patients who have been admitted into UnityPoint Health - Des Moines hospitals. Upon receiving the doctor's order and after the consultation meeting, the Palliative Care team works with the nurses and other medical personnel on your floor to make sure you are receiving the care outlined in your plan.

One of the goals of Inpatient Palliative Care is to minimize the amount of time spent in the hospital setting and maximize the results while you are there. Once you have been admitted into Palliative Care, we can continue to follow you each time you are in the hospital upon receiving a doctor's order. 

If you are readmitted to the hospital, we strive to cut down on unnecessary tests that would be performed and questions that might be asked by those who are unaware of your previous history. Because the Palliative Care team knows you, we can facilitate communication to the staff in a timely manner.

The Inpatient Palliative Care team plans to see you each time you enter the hospital and will always make sure your needs and goals come first.

If you are interested in learning more about Palliative Care, call our team at 241-5750. We will help you facilitate a palliative care conversation with your physician.
