Keep it simple, as the care home and physicians are busy and wouldn't have time to check to see who's name is on the HIPAA list if there is a long list of names. Have one or two names that the patient requests, actually it is up to the patient to place the names.

As for Hospice, Hospice prefers to have only one contact person to call to give updates, and it will be for that contact person to call the rest of the family.
