Macy Catheter Moment

Dr. Lilly Chen MD // Hospice Medical Director // Northern California

Dr. Chen shares an experience she had while providing care for a patient who was having a hard time swallowing and needed help receiving medication. She also explains how she pursues rectal catheters despite cultural pushback.

“…we are able to meet the patients and families goals’ of care, which is to achieve a comfortable passing at home. That is the most valuable thing that I have seen from use of the Macy Catheter, that we are really able to honor the patient and family’s last wishes.”
