Hospice Survey

The National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), State Hospice Organizations / Associations, and Hospice Analytics are working together to gather information about the workforce shortages in hospices. Specifically, this survey was produced by NHPCO's Council of States Workforce Workgroup. This survey asks about pre- / post- COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) Patient / Staff Ratios, staff shortages, and how providers are retaining and attracting new staff.

This survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete, so please include information you have readily available.  It is intended to be completed by one person per organization. Please complete and submit this survey by June 30, 2022.

Download a copy of the survey here (although please complete and submit the survey online).

Please note the following:
  • "Staff" refers to all employees of a particular discipline working in ANY clinical or non-clinical position. Please include all full-time, part-time, PRN, volunteering staff, and regularly scheduled contracted staff for each discipline.
  • A full-time equivalent (FTE) employee is one who is scheduled to work 37.5 or more hours per week (i.e., 1950 or more hours per year).
  • If you do not know the answer to a question, leave it blank. If the answer is zero, enter 0.
  • Individual survey responses will be kept confidential, and results will only be reported in aggregate.
  • Please contact Cordt Kassner, PhD, at Hospice Analytics (email ckassner@hospiceanalytics.com) with any technical difficulties.
