    Don't know anything about computerized documentation for hospice. But I would like to know more about studying for the certification exam. Are there any materials out there with sample test questions for all the areas covered on the exam?

    I have noticed that many of you appear to be using systems that are designed for homecare and hospice. Is there anything out there that is availabel to teach students the rudiments of charting using a computerized system

    We use Suncoast at our agency and have been for a couple years. It was rough at first, but now everyone wouldn't go back to paper for anything. The availability of the information so quickly is nice when I'm on call. Since I'm an admission nurse, I'm not in the field seeing patients all day.. so if one of the field staff needs help picking up calls on the weekend it helps me be able to answer questions about current meds and treatments.
    HAHAHA.. just realized this was an OLD post!
    Sorry!

    We use PTCT. It isn't bad once you get used to it. It's kind of a headache if you have to use it for any OASIS stuff, but for hospice documentation, I think it works fine.

    We also use PTCT for our hospice documentation. It was a little difficult to get used to but I have learned to appreciate it.
