At Bristol Hospice, we are 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”.

Bristol Hospice: ‘Run like Nasa, with the Heart of the Lord’

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.’

Happy CNA Day!

Happy CNA Day! Today is set aside to recognize the career nursing assistants who dedicate their lives to the well-being of others. It also marks the beginning of the 42nd Annual “National Nursing Assistant” week, June 13th -20th. Nursing assistants are such an important part of patient care and we at Bristol Hospice cannot be more thankful for our CNA and Home Health Aide workers. If you see a CNA in the field today, make sure to take a moment and say – THANK YOU!
