IS THERE A FORM TO FILL OUT?
Compassionate Touch applications are located in most of the hospital’s Social Services Department. The patient or their family member/caregiver may contact their social worker to fill out an application for funding through the Compassionate Touch program. If the patient is in a hospital room, he/she may contact the nurse’s station and request that their social worker be paged to their hospital room.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS FOR THE PROCESSING OF THE APPLICATION?
·
Once the application is filled out completely, the social worker will fax the application to the Compassionate Touch office. .
· All applications are processed according to the date and time received.
· The application will be processed and awarded within a 72 hour work-day turnaround upon the availability of funds. The  Compassionate Touch office is closed on weekends and holidays.
· Compassionate Touch personnel will contact the hospital social worker     concerning funding decision.
