      In most states, hospice is defined as having 6 months or less to live. You will have to check with Kaiser regarding their facilities.

      The only way that you can enter hospice is when your oncologist writes an order for it. You must be diagnosed by a doctor with a life expectancy of 6 months or less. If Kaiser does not have an inpatient hospice program, then they probably refer to an outside organization that will GIP beds at Kaiser. Check with your Kaiser case manager. Best of luck, Carm.

      Kaiser does offer hosdpice I believe with partners...I just saw it on the website this morning. If you go to kp.org and register the patient on the site there are multitudeso f things you can do there, search for hosopice. But you can get current lab test info there and lots of other services such as appointment making and prescritption reordering and a mail service.
