  • End of Life Care

    Rhode Island Hospital's nurses and doctors have been specially trained in end-of-life care and wish to offer information to patients at the end of life, and to their families and friends.

    The information is intended to help answer questions, ease concerns and provide comfort to our patients and their families.

    Patients and Their Families:

    Families and Friends:

    • Grief Management
      Learn how to take care of yourself, how to deal with and coordinate funeral or religious services, and where you can find support groups.
