What’s in a Manual?
Many organizations undertake the monumental task of writing their own policies and procedures for Home Health or Hospice without fully understanding the time required to do so. Policy and procedure manuals for Home Health and Hospice play a big role in the home health and hospice survey process. All accrediting bodies and Medicare require some level of policy and procedure preparation before a surveyor will visit an organization.
Between Medicare Conditions of Participation, Accrediting Body regulations, and other organization practices, there is an overwhelming amount of information that needs to be included in your policies.
Think of what it takes to write policies—staff time, copies of all required standards, hours of research, review periods, revisions—and then think of how much time and energy needs to be spent on an annual basis to maintain the policies. An organization could spend $30,000-$40,000 to develop policies and procedures from scratch. Your organization could employ at least one full-time employee to only maintain your policies and procedures! There has to be an easier way!
