How does 24-hour staff availability work?

If a concern or an emergency comes up at any time of day, at least one member of Sanford's hospice team can be reached by a telephone number previously given to the recipient or the recipient's family. If the situation cannot be resolved over the phone, the staff member will visit the home. All on-call staff members are licensed and certified to work in a hospice environment.
