Hospice has an organized governing body that has complete and ultimate responsibility for the organization. The governing body determines the hospice’s mission, purpose, and policies. The governing body monitors the organization’s programs and services, as well as, develops written administrative and clinical policies and procedures.
The governing body assures compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and standards.
Management and Administration assures that hospice objectively represents its service to the public. Marketing materials and individual representations fairly and accurately present the benefits, capabilities, and cost of the hospice’s program of care.
Hospice strives to create a diverse work environment reflective of the community it serves.
The hospice administration implements financial policies and practices which ensure the accuracy and reliability of financial data. Mechanisms are in place to provide for the control of accounts payable, accounts receivable, the handling of cash, and arrangements for credit.
