Product Description

Fact: You must offer hospice services to your residents ... but do you know how to do it compliantly?

Individuals eligible to access their entitlement to hospice services have the right to receive those services in their primary place of residence. But for some, their residence is a nursing home. And if your nursing home doesn't know how to jointly offer hospice services, you could risk capsizing in some turbulent compliance seas. Not to mention, this joint relationship requires careful collaboration, coordination and planning.

Join expert speaker and healthcare attorney Ross P. Lanzafame, MA, JD, for this 1-hour audioconference where he'll share essential information for hospice and skilled nursing facility providers who jointly serve hospice patients who are residents of a nursing home. He'll give you a framework to structure your hospice/nursing home relationship that both promotes regulatory compliance and helps advance the mission of both the hospice and nursing home's service to the patient and his family.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Critical background info: a patient's basic entitlement to hospice care, where it can be provided, and who's eligible.
  • Care planning: Get the scoop on clinical protocols AND staff/patient/family education.
  • Hold that bill! Make sure you know who pays for what in a joint relationship.
  • Who provides what: Important contract considerations between the hospice and nursing home provider.
  • The top 3 fraud and abuse pitfalls -- and how to avoid them when collaborating.
