WHY:  After years of working to improve regulatory requirements for hospice along with providing support through the legislature for the work we do in hospice and palliative care, this year we are asking for a bill labelled: ‘Assuring Hospice for all New Yorkers’.   We have a list of priorities we are focusing on including: appointment of a Hospice Lead in DOH senior leadership; Advance Care Planning money; priority for hospice in Health Care Facilities Transformation Money; Universal Hospice Bed Designation (instead of the current residential beds vs. GIP beds in hospice facilities); redesign of CNA’s vs. HHA/Hospice Aides into universal workers and, finally, to require DSRIP to have hospice or palliative care projects for all PPS areas.
