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.
