Home Health & Hospice

Weekly Q&A: Our hospice massage therapist was on FMLA for three months (range was 1x?3x per month), and a patient was not seen. Would an ABN or HHCCN need to be initiated?

Homecare Insider, August 22, 2016

Answer: This would either require an incident report or, if the patient no longer needed the service, just an order to discharge the service. ABNs are only completed on complete discharge from hospice. HHCCNs are not required by hospice.
