Let's Talk About Documentation for Home Health & Hospice
Presented by Elizabeth E. Hogue, Esq.
There is a lot of truth in the old adage: “If it was not documented, it is not true.” Complete, accurate documentation remains one of the “never ending” stories of home care. While documentation is an old story, it is still a crucial issue for home care providers of all types. The purpose of this session is to focus on a number of issues that remain crucial for home care, including why complete, accurate documentation is the cornerstone of care, how to correct and amend documentation, and how to document in preparation for audits of all types, including RACs and ZPICs. The emphasis will be on information that is appropriate for both managers and field staff so that the audio conference may be used as an inservice program for all staff.
