Hospices are facing tremendous challenges as they work to continue providing vital end-of-life care under the threat of COVID-19. Hospice organizations throughout the nation that operate their own inpatient units are moving with great speed to ensure the continued comfort and safety of some of the most vulnerable of hospice patients – those that are receiving general inpatient care (GIP) and inpatient respite care (IRC).
