[PGM1834] Compliance Issues Between Hospice & Skilled Nursing Facilities

Summary: How to successfully structure Hospice/SNF agreements & establish working relations so both providers maintain compliance with Medicare regulations.

HCSSA Topic(s) Addressed:

  • 97.259[d][4]agency responsibilities
  • 97.260[a][2]development and interpretation of agency policies
  • 97.260[a][8]skills for working with clients, families, and other professional service providers

Faculty: Kohr, Bonnie

Program Description: Election of Hospice Benefits by residents of a Skilled Nursing Facility can lead to confusion about the responsibilities of the SNF and those of the hospice. Issues which need to be addressed are:

  • communication between the providers
  • responsibilities of the SNF in the care of the patient
  • responsibilities of the hospice in the care of the patient
  • development of the plan of care
  • documentation
  • management of supplies or medication
  • role of the physicians
  • changes in level of care
  • payments for room and board

The first step in working together to complete this puzzle is the written agreement between the SNF and the hospice. This program provides the items which should be included in a written agreement between the hospice and the SNF to meet the Medicare Hospice Regulations, the education required by the staff of the SNF, and how to work together to avoid compliance issues for both providers.

Program Objectives: Upon completion of this program, the viewer will be able to:

  • Identify items which should be included in the written agreement between the hospice and the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)
  • Discuss the responsibilities of the hospice during the inpatient stay of a SNF resident
  • Describe the responsibilities of the SNF when the resident elects hospice
  • Assess financial responsibilities of the SNF when the patient elects hospice
