Must be the same huge mega-hospice corporation I work for.......we had an employee commit suicide and everyone was expected to carry on like nothing happened.
yep, i remember that post.
i know i've told this story and i apologize for the repeat, but it is appropriate here:
that i was asked to help head a committee in soliciting new hospice pts.
the very first ltc facility we went to, 'they' were going through the charts, and assigning many residents to hospice, only based on documentation.
meanwhile, the med'l dir is sitting there, nearly salivating while rubbing his hands together...
at the prospect of having overfilled beds with a waiting line, to boot.
it was a meat market and i was horrified.
i don't know about you, but i would never consider potential hospice pts, based only on a 10% wt loss in 6 months.
there was absolutely no regard for the person and how they presented.
it was only based on stats and data.
i walked out that day.
and have encountered other hospices that put $$ ahead of anyone and anything else.
ugh...i feel sickened just thinking about it.
