So I read a question from somebody that asked the difference between home health & hospice. I have worked both for a very long time. I enjoy home health better BUT to answer the question.....hospice-you chart to the negative and keep pt comfortable & home health you chart to the positive knowing there is room to progress & improve. Hope this helps whoever asked. I couldn't find it.
I agree. In home health the goal is getting the client to their prior level of care. On hospice the focus is primarily on symptom management.
