Hospice Levels of Care
A thorough breakdown of the Hospice levels of care; this course covers the basics of general inpatient, continuous care, and inpatient respite care. It identifies the four levels of hospice care and describes not only the criteria that must be met for each level of care change, but also the documentation requirements for general inpatient, respite, and continuous care. The course will also verbalize alternate examples of generalized documentation for general inpatient and continuous care.
