Hospice Care Services (HSP)
Hospice Care services provide care for terminally ill patients in their place of residence. End of life care involves an interdisciplinary approach to meet physical, psychosocial, spiritual, and emotional needs of the patient and/or family, as well as the palliation of symptoms related to the terminal illness.
Hospice Inpatient Care (HIC) Hospice Inpatient Care is provided directly by the hospice personnel at a facility owned/operated by the hospice (e.g, Hospice House). HIC does not include facilities in which care is provided by contract. The level of care provided can be general inpatient, residential, or respite. If general inpatient or respite care is provided, there must be a nurse on duty 24/7. End of life care involves a multidisciplinary approach to provide physical, psychosocial, spiritual, and emotional needs of the patient and/or family, as well as general medical care and palliation of symptoms.
