Successful Documentation for Hospice Long Length of Stay

This course covers the importance of robust complete documentation for hospice patients with longer lengths of stay. It can be challenging for clinicians to consistently document changes in the patient, especially when those changes are subtle and occur over a long period of time. This course explains why robust documentation is important and provides opportunities for distinguishing between weak documentation and documentation that supports ongoing eligibility for hospice services.

  • Distinguish between documentation examples that “paint the picture” of the patient and those that are vague or not specific.
  • Identify three documentation elements needed to support the six-month terminal prognosis at admission.
  • Identify three documentation elements needed to support the six-month terminal prognosis throughout the hospice election.
  • Identify three patient populations where documentation scrutiny is more likely to occur.
