Description
Hospice Tokushima, the first hospice in Tokushima, was opened in April 2002. Since then, 192 patients included 70 in 2002, 79 in 2003, and 43 in the front half of last year have past away for two and a half years. Of those patients, the average of age was 705. years old. They stayed for average of 53 days at the hospice. The number of patients has increased gradually. Ninety one % of patients were recommended from other hospitals. Twenty seven % of patients did not know their diagnosis of diseases. Hospice Tokushima has 20 private rooms, and the occupation rate of bed increased year by year, 544. % in 2002, and 733. % in 2003. It is important that the teem of doctors, nurses, co-medicals and volunteers cares patients together.
We have learned that the role of palliative care is not only symptom control but also mental care of the patients and their families.
