Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lisa Stepp, PhD, RN, APN, AOCN, CRNH (Private Practice)
Description: Approved policies should be in place prior to provision of care as they are important for risk management as well as meeting professional standards. This handbook includes policies and procedures appropriate for the hospice setting.
Purpose: These policies and procedures address the Medicare Conditions of Participation, Part 418-Hospice Care. They also meet certification and accreditation standards. The authors have prepared this handbook for use in their own facility, but they provide a sample framework for other facilities to follow.
Audience: This text is designed for administrators and managers involved in policy development and maintenance of accreditation and certification. The authors are currently involved in administration of homecare and hospice. They are extremely knowledgeable in administrative issues.
Features: Issues from eligibility and election, to conditions of participation are covered. Part I contains policy and procedures and Part II contains sample forms. While these policies are all inclusive, they appear rather lengthy and may need to be altered to make them easier to use.
Assessment: This text is an excellent resource for structure policy and procedure development in an agency providing hospice care. However, these policies do not cover clinical issues of individual aspects of care. To maintain a complete manual of policy and procedures, a facility will need to add procedure guidelines for clinicians.
