General Inpatient Care – Casey House
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19
On May 11, 2023, the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ended. Our COVID-19 Response Team is currently reviewing recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Maryland Department of Health. What follows on this page is an updated overview of our Casey House visiting guidelines and safety precautions.
The safety of our patients, families, staff, volunteers, and visitors remains a priority. We will continue to update the COVID-19 Resources page to reflect the latest recommendations from the CDC and the Maryland Department of Health.
There are four levels of hospice care as indicated by Medicare and several private insurance companies: routine home care, continuous care, general inpatient care, and respite care. General Inpatient Care (GIP) is when pain control or symptom management need to be provided to a patient in an inpatient facility that cannot be managed in other settings, such as the patient’s home. The care is intended to be short-term, to address the medical crisis and assist the patient in reaching a place of comfort and returning home. GIP must be provided in a Medicare-certified facility.
Casey House is Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice’s inpatient acute-care facility. It is the only all-hospice, acute care inpatient medical facility in Montgomery County.
Casey House is recommended when a patient’s pain and symptoms cannot be safely or appropriately managed at home, or when symptoms require intensive nursing and medical care and attention. A brief stay at Casey House can ease the emergency and help the patient resume Hospice at Home care. Casey House is available to any Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice patient who may be in need of it.
Casey House offers a comfortable, home-like atmosphere, and all patient rooms are private. Meals are cooked in our kitchen on-site, and snacks are always available. Patients and families appreciate that there are no limits to visiting hours.
Casey House has a highly skilled team of professionals who are experts in end-of-life care. All Casey House patients receive around-the-clock monitoring and care from our team, which includes doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains and highly-trained volunteers. Many complementary therapies are available including Comfort Touch, animal companionship, aromatherapy, and specialized musical offerings.
