Hospice of the Western Reserve affirms the dignity of life and advocates for patient and family comfort and quality during life’s final phase. We believe that hospice patients have the right to continue life to the fullest extent possible according to their circumstances, and we believe in fostering opportunities for continuing growth and fulfillment. We further recognize patients’ decision-making rights in relation to continuing medical treatments, and we advocate the right to withdraw treatments whose benefits are outweighed by their burdens. We also support the use of medication to alleviate pain even if there is a risk of death as a secondary and unintended consequence.
Although Hospice of the Western Reserve does not support or participate in assisted suicide or euthanasia, we understand that some patients may request assistance with suicide or euthanasia. We will not abandon these people but will continue to support them and their families, providing comfort care including pain and symptom management as well as social, psychosocial and spiritual support.
