General Inpatient Hospice Care:
General Inpatient Care (GIP) for hospice patients is a level of care for those in need of symptom management and comprehensive education and support related to the terminal diagnosis. General Inpatient Care is available in the hospital, Denver Inpatient Care Center at Lowry, or skilled nursing facility. The length of stay is determined by the Denver Hospice Inpatient Care Center nurses and our physician. Most insurance policies cover room and board at this level of care.
- GIP hospice care is for short-term, aggressive, symptom management related to the terminal diagnosis that is out of control, such as unmanageable pain, nausea, vomiting, or other conditions.
- Once the patient's symptoms and pain are stabilized, he or she must return to a routine level of hospice care.
