FAQ ; commonly asked questions
Is there a resident doctor or nurse?
Residents who come to LMdT keep their own doctors and home care support, just as they would at home. If the workload for the patient’s doctor is too heavy at this stage of illness (e.g. possibility of being on call 24 hours), or the patient does not have a doctor, a practitioner in palliative care from the GGPSP (Groupement genevois des praticiens en soins palliatifs) can be proposed to lighten the workload, or to take complete medical charge of the patient. A member of the Tara management committee is also always on call if additional help is needed.
