Hospice Liability: Addressing Legal Issues with End-of-Life Care
In a recent article published on the Health Law Blog, one author stressed the important of formal agreements between hospice communities and nursing homes, stating that these agreements must be carefully scrutinized to assure compliance. They state that hospices should have clear policies and procedures regarding the scope of services to be provided to nursing home patients. In addition to ensuring an appropriate hospice-nursing home relationship, there are a broad range of additional legal issues with end-of-life care that should be actively addressed when it comes to hospice liability. According to resources from the End of Life/ Palliative Education Resource Center (EPERC) located in the Medical College of Wisconsin, hospice communities should ensure that they have an appropriate decision making and communication disclosure agreement. This should involve revealing information about illness, treatments and prognosis to all relevant parties, being open and honest in all communications, and not withholding information as doing so robs patients and families of growth opportunities and informed choices. By not following these procedures, your client could be opening themselves up to a serious hospice liability legal claim. The EPERC recommends the following four principals of medical ethics that all hospice communities should abide by to reduce and potentially prevent hospice liability legal claims. - Always act in the best interests of the patient. - Recognize the patient’s right to make decisions about treatment according to beliefs, culture, personal values and life plan. - Avoid doing harm to the patient; either physical or mental. Always respect the integrity of patients. - Fairly allocate resources when serving patients and their families. By taking great care in addressing these issues, it may be possible for your clients to reduce their hospice liability risks. At Care Providers Hospice Community, we understand that the home healthcare and hospice industry is among the fastest-growing industries in our country. In order to support its continued success, Care Providers offers a broad insurance program exclusively designed to address the unique risks associated with hospice care.

Documentation for home health care
Avoiding malpractice is more than avoiding a lawsuit, it is avoiding the litigation process altogether. Proper documentation is arguably the most important element in avoiding malpractice and litigation for nurses. There are many reasons why nurses spend much of their time charting. However, when it comes to malpractice and the litigation process, documentation may be the only evidence a nurse has to defend his or her position. By the time a lawsuit is filed, chances are the nurses will not remember the particular patient involved, especially if they only cared for the patient for one or two shifts. Even if the nurses do remember the patient, it is their documentation that will be reviewed, presented and relied on, not their memory. All nurses have been taught, "If it's not written, it's not done!" But, what exactly does that mean? Whether you are a student nurse or have been in nursing for thirty years, this question may be difficult to answer. Over the years, documentation has changed a great deal. But, the rationale behind why documentation is important remains the same. Whether you are documenting with a narrative style, using flow sheets or charting by exception, the purpose of documentation is to memorialize what occurred while you took care of your patient and to capture relevant information about the patient's condition and medical history. The more accurately your documentation depicts what actually happened during the time you took care of your patient, the more likely you are to avoid becoming involved in litigation for malpractice. Regardless of the type or style of charting a nurse uses, it is important for documentation to be legible, logical, and complete. Not only to prove what occurred, but to also show what did not occur. For example, if a patient is admitted to a facility with both arms in tact, and claims to have left the facility with a broken arm, the first thing the patient's attorneys and their experts are going to do is review the medical records. They will try to determine from the records when and how this patient's arm could have been broken.

Palliative Care Versus Hospice
Palliative care and hospice care are similar in that they both offer medical support for people with serious, sometimes terminal illnesses. But the two have very different objectives. "Patients, families even our medical professionals are still confused about the role of palliative care in a patient with serious illnesses," says Dr. Sherika Newman, a palliative care physician with Lee Memorial Health System. Dr. Newman is part of the palliative care team at Lee Memorial Health System. "Palliative medicine actually runs concurrent with a patient's medical illness even when they are in curative phases such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, being treated for their heart failure or chronic lung disease," says Dr. Newman. There's a key distinction that sets it apart from hospice. "Hospice is end of life care meaning the patient can no longer benefit from curative measures or they have failed curative measures and they're truly at end of life and only need the support of care for end of life," says Dr. Newman. Palliative care is frequently directed toward cancer, heart conditions and stroke, but any illness that's long term and debilitating can fall under its umbrella. Taking a team approach, both palliative care and hospice includes doctors, nurses, social workers, even clergy. Points of interest range from pain management to helping a patient cope with the consequences of their condition. "We're focusing on quality of life and not isolating the patient into just focusing on the medical disease. And I think that as the baby boomers age, and they are an intellectually aging group, they're going to want these types of support care," says Dr. Newman. It's focus on quality of life, not end of life, sets palliative care apart.

Palliative Care vs Hospice Care: What is the Difference? | Dying Matters
There are many misconceptions that people have about palliative and hospice care. Clare Henry explains that the term “palliative care” describes a wide spectrum of activities that are intended to support dying patients. These activities include keeping the patient comfortable, helping families to stay engaged and informed and helping everyone involved to deal with the inevitable emotional issues that arise during this difficult time. In essence, the focus of palliative care is to help facilitate the best possible quality of life for terminally ill patients, their family and their friends.

Family Hospice Wedding Day
After a long battle with lung cancer, Jim's dying wish was to renew wedding vows with his dear wife of 42 years, Jerri. The interdisciplinary team at The Center for Compassionate Care, the Inpatient Unit of Family Hospice and Palliative Care in Pittsburgh, PA, identified this goal. The team incorporated this life-affirming event into the plan of care and made Jim's wish come true. With Jerri at Jim's bedside, sons Bill and Dave in attendance, along with other family and Family Hospice staff, and their clergyman, Rev. William Hower, officiating, the ceremony took place at Jim's bedside in the Inpatient Unit. Jim wore a boutonniere. Jerri held a beautiful bouquet. There was even wedding cake and the traditional opportunity for the groom to kiss his bride, all coordinated by the interdisciplinary team, including Family Hospice Quality of Life Program Coordinator Paula Church, who documented the event through photos. Jim, Jerri and their family viewed the photos the next day, just before Jim's death. They act as a lasting memory of an important family event that will forever be cherished. Paula Church used the photos that she took, along with photos from their wedding, to create this video. Jerri's wish was that it be played as a memorial tribute at Jim's funeral. The song that accompanies the video was chosen by Jim himself. "Wedding Day" is online because it is important to Jerri to get the word out not only about her love for her husband but also for her appreciation and love of Family Hospice and the staff that cared for her husband, and supported her and her family. The experience continues to impact Jerri and her family in bereavement, as an ongoing lifeline to the memories they all share. The video, along with Jerri's personal Family Hospice experience, has created a great bond. Jerri found comfort in bereavement visits and sharing her memories of her life with Jim. She has come full circle, now sewing quilts to give to others living with loss. Jerri donates the quilts to families at The Center for Compassionate Care - the same place she and Jim renewed their vows.

Tidewell Hospice | Trailer
A Philosophy of Care When people think of healthcare breakthroughs, they usually think of new surgical procedures or miracle drugs, not hospice care. Hospice's story, however, is unique and remarkable. In just a little more than three decades, hospice has quietly revolutionized the way people in America live at the end of their lives by honoring wishes, bringing peace and dignity. Many people, until they experience it themselves, do not understand the profound support and comfort hospice provides. Caring for a loved one can be rewarding and fulfilling for those who are able to see the experience as a final act of love. For others, however, it can be a lonely and often frustrating responsibility. Tidewell Hospice's professionals bring their own special touch to both -- enhancing the experience for the former and easing the burden on the latter. As the only local, not-for-profit hospice, Tidewell focuses on quality of life when quantity is no longer possible. When patients and families choose Tidewell, they receive care unlike any other. Tidewell goes to the patients, treats pain and symptoms and eases emotional and spiritual suffering. A team of dedicated health care experts and members of the community make it possible -- doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, volunteers and grief specialists. Hospice is a program of care and support wherever patients need it. Home-based comfort care is the basic premise, and the reassurance of being at home, surrounded by loved ones and personal belongings is the cornerstone of hospice care. Nearly all family caregivers experience physical and emotional stress. In order to continue in their role and still maintain their own well being, they need to be surrounded by compassionate support from professional caregivers. That has long been Tidewell's focus, placing the patients and families together at the center of care. The cost of most hospice services are covered under Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance plans, HMOs and other managed care organizations. In addition, because of generous community support and memorial donations, Tidewell is able to provide services to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

CINCINNATI (Brad Underwood) --- It's a conversation that needs to happen with your loved ones, but how do you start it? Hospice of Cincinnati is trying to help. Theyve hired actors to stand in busy areas of town during rush hour and simply hold a sign, hoping you'll get the message and start the conversation. On foot or driving by, it's hard to miss the woman on Fountain Square with a bright smile and that big white sign. It reads "I'll always be here for you."But she's not alone, 20 minutes north; there is a man who is holding another sign that says "I'm glad Im now your friend and son."They're conversation starters, things you shouldn't wait to say because you never know, you might not get the chance. "Expressing wishes about what's important to us, who would speak for us if we couldn't speak for ourselves, and eventually down the road, end of life care planning, said Barbara Rose.Through social media and the hashtag #ThingsYouShouldntWaitToSay, Hospice of Cincinnati launches their campaign, Conversations of a Lifetime. Helping you get past the challenge of sharing your wishes with your loved ones about end of life care. "If I came at you and said hey let's talk about your end of life care plan, you might not be as receptive as you are to a message, a positive message on a street corner by somebody who looks like somebody you might work with or go to school with, so that was our plan, said Rose.And it's working. Thousands of people a day are seeing the messages in five different locations around Cincinnati."Youre the best parent I could have ever imagined. Whatever feels heartfelt, say it, and then when you are in that space, say it is really important for me to understand how I can serve you, take care of you in the future, said Rose.Using social media, Hospice of Cincinnati is targeting a younger crowd. When you here hospice and end of life care, most of us think of people who are terminally ill or near the end of life.That's the myth about having the conversation, to get ideas and wishes out on the table early because you never know when an event will happen that could forever change your life. This summer, a mobile unit will travel around the city to continue helping people start the conversation about end of life care.Follow Brad Underwood on Twitter @BUnderwoodWKRC, and LIKE him on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter @Local12 and LIKE us on Facebook for updates!

Weekly Activities for Home Care Marketing Representatives
http://www.homecaremarketing.net "Helping Service Providers Find Those in Need of Care" 848-444-9865 I hope everyone is having a terrific summer thus far. What I love about the Healthcare Industry is how business goes during the summer months. I find that we tend to become relaxed and kick back, taking it easy for a bit. Which makes sense, specially if you have kids as they are out of school. But in this week’s episode of A Drink With The Hurricane, I’m doing to say DON’T. We have vacations for a reason, this is when you take time to recharge the battery. So use your days for that purpose. If you’re working however, you should be WORKING. Now if you’re a full time Marketing Representative or a Home Care Business Owner who employs a (or multiple) Marketing Rep, how should I spend my time marketing in the field? This is where the importance and need of drop by visits comes in to play. After all, what are we trying to accomplish? We are trying to build a referring relationship with individuals who have the referrals to give. This is something that takes time, and so therefor we have see these folks again and again. How are we to accomplish this week after week, month after month? Well this is a particularly debated topic from marketing company to company. Some marketing companies feel that marketing reps should see 40-50 accounts each week. I couldn’t disagree more. You want to talk about setting someone up for failure, ask them to go to this many accounts and see what happens. If you factor in drive time, office meetings, appointments, and so on, this gives you 10-20 mins to spend in each account. It’s just not enough time to be able to develop a referring relationship with someone. The visit would be quick, essentially asking for a referral and then leaving. I’ve personally recorded interviews I’ve had with social workers, and they do NOT appreciate this at all. Here’s what I suggest you try: Meaningful Conversations – When dropping by for a visit, don’t just ask for a referral, but get to know your contacts. People refer who they Know Like and Trust. If you only ask for referrals, you’re not developing a relationship and chances are you’re not getting the referrals you’re after! Have a Face to Face visit with 1 person for every hour you spend marketing – If you are a Home Care Business Owner doing the marketing yourself for example, dedicate say 20 hours per week to direct referral marketing. With that 20 hours, you should have a meaningful conversation with a Key Contact with in a referral source 20x during that week. If you’re a full time Marketing Rep, working 40 hours, then do this 40x. Plan to visit 15-20 Accounts during the week – In order to accomplish the above tip, we need to do so by seeing multiple key contacts with in a sales account. A SNF, for example, has 7 – 10 key contacts. If you’re going to take the time to drive there, make the most of it and see 3-4 of these key contacts all in one place on one visit. This is “Blanketing The Account”. It helps combat turn over, creates accountability, and helps you to ensure referrals are sent your way. Repetition – If your accounts are well qualified (To find out about qualifying accounts, click HERE) then you need to do this again and again, week after week, month after month. Remember, it takes 8-12 visits before you start getting the referrals you’re after. That’s 2-3 months if you go weekly. The Good News, your competitors give up after 3-5. These are part of the strategies that every coaching client of ours goes through, and you should see the referral numbers they put up! It truly is a perfect example of “Less is More”. We are trying to get individuals to trust you with their patients, and so it’s going to take time. The time we spend in front of them, the better our relationship will be and before long, you’ll be receiving the referrals you’re after.
