Hospices

Did you know that 67 percent of your patients may have already made the decision to donate organs and tissues after their death?  In Colorado, 67 percent of those with a driver's license are on the Colorado Donor Registry.

Unfortunately, no one made it easy for hospices to follow those wishes. The donation referral system was made for hospitals; it simply didn't work for a hospice. That's why the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank worked with hospice professionals to design and test a referral system specifically for hospices and their patients.

It isn’t about getting more donors. It’s about giving patients and their families choices — the opportunity to leave a legacy of a different kind.

What does a donation program do for the hospice, the patient, and the family? Find out in this short, tell-it-like-it-is video from hospice professionals. 

What does it mean to have a donation conversation with a hospice patient or their family? In this video, hospice professional talk about the training they receive from RMLEB.
