Pain & Symptom Management

OSF Hospice upholds these basic principles:

  • Commitment to making patients as comfortable as possible
  • Recognition that dying is part of the normal process of living
  • An affirmation and celebration of life that neither hastens nor postpones death

Our team concentrates on comfort care and quality of life for our patients. Our nurses are trained in total pain management and symptom control.

We include the patient and their family in the patient’s individualized care plan and provide physical, emotional and spiritual support during this difficult stage of life.
