Hospices Willing to Take Hits from Regulators to Ensure Ethical, Quality Care

Posted Monday, May 16, 2022

Hospice providers, to root out bad servers, are willing to take on additional regulatory pressure. At the end of the day, their willingness to do so is to protect all hospice patients.

“Regulatory scrutiny is on the rise for hospices nationwide, but is gaining particular traction in California. For example, a recent report from the California State Auditor revealed that “weak oversight” has created widespread opportunities for fraud and abuse.
