A Day in the Life of a Hospice Social Worker
from VITAS Healthcare
From Sept. 14:
There's no such thing as a "typical" day in the life of hospice social worker Judy Weisenfeld. When she arrives at the VITAS Inpatient Hospice Unit at North Shore Medical Center at 7:30 a.m., before she even puts her purse away, there are challenges to face, problems to solve and families to help. A clinical social worker for nearly 20 years and a hospice social worker for more than seven, Judy spends her days coordinating with medical staff and patients' families to make sure the patients are getting everything they need and will go home more comfortable and medically stable than they were when they arrived.
