Celebrating Nurses | Jennifer Raymond

Premier Hospice & Home Health is celebrating nurses during the month of May! Meet Jennifer and learn about her passion for nursing as she explains her “why.” My Why: There is no greater privilege than being allowed to help a patient and their family through the end of their life on earth.

Meet Mike: A Day in the Life of a Hospice Nurse

It’s 5 p.m. and Mike is off to work for the day. Mike is a night nurse and part of the intake process for Premier Hospice Indiana, educating patients and their families on hospice services: counseling, medical services, and postmortem care. “It’s an important job because people often don’t like the word hospice,” says Mike. “I  tell people that hospice care isn’t like hospitals.
