NHPCO submitted a letter to leadership of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis regarding a hearing held on September 21, 2022 entitled “Examining Long-Term Care in America: The Impact of the Coronavirus in Nursing Homes.” NHPCO provided information and data provided by members, which showed that at the onset of the pandemic, hospice providers experienced difficulty accessing patients enrolled in hospice care who resided in nursing homes and other facilities. These difficulties reportedly continued into at least August 2021. The described past and continued disruptions to patient access in nursing facilities undoubtedly impacts hospice providers’ ability to provide quality care at the end of life.
