Live discharges are when patients’ hospice services must be discontinued due to ineligibility or other reasons.  This can often result in feeling like the services we touted are now yanked away.  Does your staff know the difference between a revocation and a live discharge and how to continually assess patients’ eligibility?  The chances are one in five that a patient will face a live discharge.  Therefore, eligibility and live discharge are ongoing issues that should be addressed in IDG.  Is your agency prepared for ongoing eligibility assessment, discharge planning, and mechanisms to help patients receive continued support even after hospice services are discontinued?  Do you know the characteristics of problematic live discharges?  Does your agency use those practices?  What live discharge reports and statistics are reviewed by the government?  Are you operating under the radar?  Attend this informative webinar to learn the answer to these questions and more.
