Access to Patients in Nursing Homes

In recent days, NHPCO has been hearing some renewed concerns about hospice providers’ access to patients in nursing homes and would like to make CMS aware of this issue. Please email [email protected] to let us know about any recent experiences you have had accessing and providing care for patients in these settings. These could include access to patients, inability to do in-person assessment visits, and any other requirements from nursing homes for hospice patients residing there.
