Judy Morris, RN, BSN, HFNC, 5 Star Consultants
Over 45 years as registered nurse, with the last 20 years including home health, coordination of SNF with hospice, QAPI, worked 15 years for Missouri Bureau of Home Care as hospice/ home health surveyor over 12 years, then promoted to Assistant Bureau Administrator — supervised a team of hospice/ home health surveyors for 3 years. Provided consultation with hospice agencies on regulatory issues.  Joined 5 Star Consultants in January 2019. Performed consultations onsite at hospice agencies, conducted mock surveys, provided education of new staff/ administrators, and performed QAPI audits since 2019.

Is your hospice compliant with the new requirements for revised election statements with timely provision of election addendums? What about consents for patient rights, given at admission?  Does your hospice document level of care changes and appropriate use of each type of level of care (such as continuous care or GIP) to avoid payment denials?  Does your documentation show coordination, decisions and IDG discussions about discharges (deaths, extended prognosis, or discharge for cause)?  Does your IDG care planning/ coordination documentation prevent serious condition level deficiencies? Join us for this informative webinar as we discuss each of these areas in detail so you can ensure your understanding of Hospice A (admit) to DC (discharge).

At the end of this educational initiative, participants should be able to:

  • Outline how to ensure consent forms are complete and show compliance with patient rights regulatory requirements
  • Examine how to ensure complete/ current and individualized plans of care, documentation to show the plan of care is delivered as written or updated as needed; and sufficient documentation of coordination by IDG
  • Define each type of hospice level of care
  • Describe appropriate documentation/implementation when level of care changes occur
  • Explain the differences between revocation and discharge
  • Describe appropriate documentation for revocation, transfers and discharge – in particular for discharge for cause
