Since the hospitalist role came about in our local community around 2014, there are very few physicians left who admit to our one local hospital. I don't see how small,rural hospice agencies will be able to meet this regulation with the current lack of physicians in general. Thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion on behalf of myself, our IDG, and our Board of Directors.
