Self Assessment – See How You Compare

Please complete the self assessment questions below. When you submit your answers you can see how your organization compares to others.

 * Please indicate the first of the following specialized settings in which your hospice meets the needs of your community for inpatient hospice services?

 * Regardless of how you provide inpatient services, what is the financial contribution of your inpatient care?

 * Does your hospice fully meet the needs of patients and families who either desire care outside of the home or do not have a suitable home setting in which to provide intermittent care by the interdisciplinary hospice team?

 * What has been your experience in dealing with hospitals regarding the number of patients who die in acute care beds that might be better served in a hospice care center with lower costs and higher patient and family satisfaction?
