Bristol Hospice: Serious about Compliance

Last month, the Office of the Inspector General released two new reports following its investigation into hospice care in the U.S. the NHPCO responded to New OIG Reports on Hospice Care with a press release stating that, “NHPCO welcomes the opportunity to shed a light on high quality providers as well as those that fall short in providing appropriate care.”

At Bristol Hospice, compliance forms the backbone of the company and in light of these reports from OIG and NHPCO, we want to take this opportunity to share some of these compliance aspects which we consider makes us one of the “high quality providers”.

Coping with Loss.

BRH2

The stages of mourning and grief are universal and are experienced by people from all walks of life. Mourning occurs in response to an individual’s own terminal illness, the loss of a close relationship, or to the death of a valued being, human or animal.

Every person grieves differently, and typically experience five stages of normal grief. Many do not experience the stages in order. In Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross book, “On Death and Dying” she identified the stages as denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. (source: Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Foundation.)

Loved ones that are terminally ill or aging appear to go through a final period of withdrawal. Those coping with loss spend different lengths of time working through each step and express each stage with different levels of intensity.

Bristol Hospice is here to support. Our trained volunteers, Chaplains and Bereavement Counselors provide grief counseling and support groups for those who have experienced loss.

 

Bristol Hospice ~ Oregon hosts several support programs and resources established specifically for the local community, such as the “Build a Bridge of Hope” Support Group, Grief Release Classes and Hospice Hikers.

Contact us to learn how our experts provide support for those coping with loss and grief.

Bristol Hospice Thanks you.
