Haven Hospice excelling in patient care
Haven Hospice, which has been re-branded to just Haven, exceeded the national average in all categories in hospice patient care quality measured by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, according to a release.
In 2016, Haven served over 16,000 individuals and families throughout the center’s 18-county service area, including Flagler, Bunnell and Volusia. As part of its re-branding, Haven is now introducing new programs such as Advance Care Planning and No One Dies Alone services with a “patient-centric focus.”
According to the release, Haven discussed treatment preferences with 99.8% of its patients and caregivers, and 99.3% of patients or caregivers were asked about their beliefs and values at the beginning of hospice care. In addition, 99% of Haven’s patients were checked for pain at the beginning of hospice care. The national average was 93.9%.
Agencies electronically report data on these measurements to CMS. The most recently published data was collected between Oct. 1, 2015, and Sept. 30, 2016.
“Making these scores available to the public promotes transparency in the hospice industry and assists individuals and their families in choosing quality care,” Haven President Gayle Mattson said in a release. “Our associates are dedicated and passionate in their service to our hospice patients and their caregivers which is exemplified in these scores.”
