Cynthia Conover has been a Registered Nurse for almost three years at Hospice of Dayton. She is the RN Case Manager for On-Call/ Extended Hours. As an on-call nurse, Cindy’s job is to care for hospice patients who are having symptom management problems such as severe pain, respiratory distress, nausea, vomiting, and other symptoms that occur at end of life. Because she has to move onto the next family in crisis, Cindy must quickly and critically assess emergency situations. Her quick thinking is always done with the patient’s and family’s best interests in mind. In her role as a hospice nurse, Cindy also visits families who have just lost a loved one. Cindy is considered a role model who has truly made a difference in her patients’ and their families’ lives. She is a member of Hospice’s On-Call Unit Council, which assists in making department changes, and also serves as a mentor to new staff members. Cindy received her AAS in Nursing from Sinclair Community College and is certified in Hospice and Palliative Care.
