Live discharges – only in hospice do these 2 words together make sense. But do you really understand the regulations behind and the implications of live discharges?
In this session, expert speaker Charlene Ross, MSN, MBA, RN, will address the regulatory requirements and the implications of live discharges under the Medicare Hospice Benefit. Hospice regulations specify criteria for when a hospice may discharge a beneficiary and how a beneficiary revokes. While specific regulations address the patient’s choice to revoke the hospice benefit or transfer to another hospice provider. As CMS continues to look at live discharges and gather data surrounding them, this session will help you improve your hospice’s regulatory competency related to live discharges.
Charlene will shed light on:
