Iowa floods and palliative care

See how it’s disrupting hospice services: “As a hospice think about if you lost half your staff, some of your patients had to be evacuated, and you had no safe water. You can never plan for every possible problem that might come up, but it would be very helpful to talk through different disaster plans with your staff. You never realize how wonderful it is to wash your hands, brush your teeth or take a bath until you can’t. I had never thought about all the things we do to care for patents that require water.”
