Tuesday Tips: Residents on Hospice

With your hectic schedule, it is sometimes easy to overlook simple compliance issues. Advanced Healthcare Studies’ “Tuesday Tips” will bring you a quick, helpful idea each week that can assist you in your operations related to regulatory compliance. We know that many of you implement outstanding practices in your community, and we welcome your ideas as well. If you have a tip that you would like to share, just reply by email and we may share your tip in a future “Tuesday Tip.”

Tip:  Are you caring for residents receiving hospice service? Does the resident reside in a shared room? Make sure you have a signed agreement from the resident’s roommate agreeing to share the bedroom with the resident receiving hospice care. Is your hospice agency information form complete? Does your Emergency Disaster Plan address the needs of hospice residents?  

Reference Regulations 87632 & 87633
