Most patients admitted to hospice as “Full Code” transition to “Do Not Attempt Resuscitation” while receiving hospice care. Patients begin to understand that we offer treatments that make sense to their current medical situation. Their prognostic awareness improves over time, and they realize that No Code does not equate to No Care.
Hospice of the Northwest is a skilled, caring and compassionate team of nursing, medical, social and spiritual professionals, volunteers and generous donors. Together, we provide comprehensive care and comfort for patients facing serious illness and the loved ones who care for them. We’ve been serving the residents of Skagit, Island, San Juan and Snohomish Counties since 1989.
