    I REALLY like this book.

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

    I received my book today and haven’t put it down. I have been searching for a reliable, comprehensive source that I could confidently use as a tutorial for my hospice staff and I have now found it! This book puts into perspective issues that commonly stump hospice nurses’ documentation efforts. This handbook offers sound, logical approaches to thinking about eligibility, care delivery, teaching, interdisciplinary coordination of care, and so much more. I highly recommend this wonderful, comprehensive resource for all hospice disciplines. Very well done!
