Our senior citizens have contributed so much to our communities and helped make them what they are today. National Senior Citizens Day is the day to show them our appreciation and support and recognize their accomplishments. It’s also a time to help raise awareness of various issues that affect senior citizens. Do you have an elderly person in your life that you love and appreciate? August 21 —National Senior Citizens Day — is the day to let them know how much you care about them.
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”.
The management team of Optimal Hospice Care, A Bristol Hospice Company in Bakersfield, had the wonderful opportunity to cook breakfast for the campers at the Optimal Hospice Foundation Kids camp this past week.
With hands covered in bacon grease or pancake batter, the team was able to make an impact through their act of service for the children at camp. We have such a great team of caring professionals, who always go above and beyond.
Everyone had a great time, and all are looking forward to doing it again next year!
It is incredibly fulfilling to do the work that we have the honor to do, day in, and day out. To receive such notes like this from a patient’s family, reminds us just how important it is to keep on doing our very best, in every day.
What a compliment: “You run like NASA with the heart of the Lord”.
Our mission – after all – is ‘that all patients and families entrusted to our care will be treated with the highest level of compassion, respect, and quality of care.’
