Referral Process

Physician referral…(Easy as 1, 2, 3)

1. Call Notre Dame Hospice at 985.847.0174 or 504.227.3600 to relay primary information (Patient Name and Contact Information)

2. Fax order and supporting information (Labs, H&P, etc) to 985.679.0671 or 504.227.3601

3. Notre Dame Hospice will do the rest! A member of our team will schedule an appointment at the convenience of your patient and family. Our RN will assess, discuss his/ her findings, and admit as appropriate. Hospice related medications, equipment, and supplies will be provided and within 5 days the patient and family will meet all the members of their unique medical team. The team, in coordination with the physician, patient, and family will develop an individualized plan of care to best meet the needs of the patient physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Most importantly throughout the process we bestow the same care and compassion to our patients and families as the physician that has entrusted them to Notre Dame Hospice.
