General Inpatient Hospice

Do you review and query general inpatient hospice charts? For instance a hosice patient was admitted in respiratory failure, AKI, Acute on chronic CHF, none of which were documented.

    Hospice is the only thing that doesn't the last time I checked.   You are going to get hammered for your palliative/DNR/Comfort patients who die if nothing is documented on them.
