An Office of Inspector General (OIG) report posted in November 2019 found that Registered Nurses (RNs) didn’t always:
- Visit hospice patients’ homes at least once every 14 days to assess the quality of care and services provided by hospice aides
- Document these visits as required
The Enhancing RN Supervision of Hospice Aide Services Fact Sheet (MLN) educates hospices on the RN supervisory role.
