When the time comes for hospice care, families want the best for their loved ones. An essential early step to finding quality care is having conversations about pressing needs. However, since all Medicare-approved hospices offer the same basic services, how do you find the best care for your family?
As you weigh your options, consider hospice care at Compassus. We believe everyone has the right to live with comfort and dignity, no matter their circumstances. Here are some of the benefits of hospice care at Compassus.
We Are Accredited
All Compassus locations have been independently accredited by Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP). CHAP provides guidelines and conducts unscheduled, in-person visits to ensure we meet the industry’s highest quality standards.
What Is CHAP Accreditation?
Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) is an accrediting organization for home and community-based health care. CHAP has been granted authority by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to determine whether providers meet CMS quality standards and the Medicare Conditions of Participation.
“CHAP accreditation is a testament to our commitment to quality and operational excellence. Evaluation by a third-party accrediting agency ensures we fully comply with Medicare certification.”
– Jen Hale, Vice President of Clinical Quality and Standards for Compassus
