Synopsis:

End-of-life care is receiving more and more attention in facilities and in the news.

We will discuss CMS regulatory pronouncements on end-of-life care and look at OIG issues regarding end-of-life care. Practices and procedures, alone or with hospices, to enhance end-of-life experiences for residents, families and facility staff will be shared.
