With the needed change in GIP utilization, hospices are struggling to keep inpatient unit or Hospice House beds full.  More agencies are offering residential care (routine home care level of care in a hospice house or inpatient unit) and finding it difficult to meet all the regulations for these patients who typically have a longer length of stay than patients receiving inpatient care.  This session will review the financial, operational, and regulatory challenges of the changing landscape of the inpatient unit and provide suggestions for going through the transition smoothly.
