I just received Hospice & Palliative Care Handbook, Third Edition, by Tina M. Marrelli. It is an excellent resource with quality, compliance, and reimbursement issues addressed in an easy to read format – I will be using it as a tutorial for my hospice staff. Gives a few of the major diagnoses with eligibility, teaching, safety, care planning ideas with great explanations on how to address those patients who seem to plateau. The author is the one who wrote the Little Red Books (many of us used those books early on in home health). I’ve been in hospice for a very long time and this is one of the best books I have found for using to teach staff and provide guidance for hospice care and documentation. It’s small in size and would be easy for staff to carry around. It addresses all disciplines, too. And, No, I am not getting paid to say this – it really is that good.

I REALLY like this book.
I have been using Marrelli books in Home Health for years. The Hospice books is every bit as good.
