Sue Ryder Care – Wheatfields Hospice

I can only review one aspect of Wheatfields Hospice as I have only experienced the brick-a-brack sale they have twice a week to raise money, and not the care home element of it.

Formalities aside, I can now express my utter joy in sharing this charity shop style gem with all the Yelp readers. It is AMAZING! It is open at very odd times so some planning is required but is basically made up of a few small warehouse type buildings and a few large porter cabins and is a bargain hunters DREAM. One section houses second (or more) hand furniture like tables and sofas, and old bike parts. I picked up a large wooden mirror from here for only a few quid a while ago. Then there is a large section dedicated to clothing of all kinds. In fits of creativity I have raided this place for old clothes to cut up and turn into new clothes. Next to this there is book section with most books priced in true charity shop style at only 50p each, maybe a pound for a hardback. And there is even more – a room dedicated to junk of all kinds – plated, jars, old glasses, broken umbrellas, vases, trays, ornamental bits of glass. the list goes on. Basically any of the useless items you re likely to find in your granny s house amongst which are lying some glorious treasures. And finally, if you feel totally worn out by all this browsing there is a tea room with tea, coffee and home made cake – also a perfect place to hobnob with the local OAPs. So, finally, this is a great place to get down to if you ve moved into a new house and are looking for some cheap furniture or anything else second hand.

Sue Ryder hospice move from Nettlebed falls through

Image copyright bbc Image caption The Grade II listed property was built by the grandfather of the James Bond author Ian Fleming

A Sue Ryder hospice based in an Edwardian house in Oxfordshire will not move to a purpose-built centre as planned.

Services were due to relocate from Joyce Grove in Nettlebed to a new 12-bed facility at the Townlands Community Hospital in Henley.

The hospice said it was unable to reach agreement on a “number of key areas” with local NHS providers.

The charity said it was still committed to finding a new location.

The hospice said one of the issues was the limitations of 12 beds at Townlands would have meant another property was needed to cater for more people and outpatients.

The current Grade II listed property in Nettlebed was built by Robert Fleming the grandfather of the James Bond author Ian Fleming.

People have been cared for at the house for more than 30 years but the charity cannot offer patients single rooms and access via public transport is difficult.

Sue Ryder Hospice, Nettlebed

Context
The Sue Ryder Hospice in the village of Nettlebed is a country house built in 1908 by C E Mallows for Robert Fleming. The property was formerly known as Joyce Grove. Nettlebed lies seven kilometres north west of Henley. There are references to Joyce Grove from 1637 when it was sold to James Thompson of Wallingford. By 1840, Joyce Grove was registered as a freehold estate of 33 acres belonging to John Toovey. then in 1894, London businessman H H Gardiner purchased the Joyce Grove estate which at that time included a William and Mary style manor house dating from 1725.

In 1903, Robert Fleming purchased the Nettlebed Estate, which include 2,000 acres, cottages, clayworks and the Joyce Grove estate with its manor house and land. Shortly after purchasing Joyce Grove, Robert Fleming tore down the older manor house and in its place built the current large Jacobean style house with 44 bedrooms and gardens.

Description
The 1st ed. OS map of 1879 shows a rectangular productive walled kitchen garden with a perimeter path and inner paths, with trees lining the paths and to the north. This garden lies 35 metres to the south west of the house. The 1898 map shows glasshouses facing south on the south wall. The walls remain and the garden is still productive.

Feds sue Hospice of the Comforter for Medicare fraud

January 14, 2013 | By Kate Santich, Orlando Sentinel

The federal government is suing Hospice of the Comforter for Medicare fraud, alleging that since at least 2005 the Altamonte Springs-based nonprofit knowingly billed for patients who were not terminally ill and even encouraged “creative” record-keeping to cover up the truth.

The facility could face millions of dollars in fines and damages as a result.

The suit, filed late last week by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, cites a case where the facility allegedly billed for hospice care over 4 1/2 years for an Alzheimer’s patient who was never considered terminally ill. Typically patients move to hospice care when they have less than six months to live.

In another case, when a nurse noted that a patient’s current condition would not qualify for hospice care, the diagnosis was suddenly changed to rectal cancer, the suit says, though there was no evidence the patient had cancer at any point during her 287-day stay in hospice.

At charges averaging more than $4,000 a month, bills for the two patients added up to more than $180,000 from Medicare the taxpayer-funded health-insurance program for the elderly and disabled.

The suit specifically alleges that longtime hospice CEO Robert Wilson instructed employees to admit patients without determining whether they were terminally ill, as Medicare requires, and then to bill the federal program for reimbursement. Staff also was instructed to find ways to document the cases in patients’ medical files so that the billings appeared legitimate.

Latour “LT” Lafferty, a Tampa attorney representing Hospice of the Comforter, said the charity “vehemently denies” that there was ever any intent to defraud the government. He also said management has been fully cooperative with the investigation and is trying to resolve the matter.

“What I can tell you is that Bob [Robert Wilson] has always been and is fully committed to providing the highest quality of care to his patients, regardless of whether or not they’re reimbursed by the federal government,” Lafferty said. “So if a person comes to Hospice of the Comforter seeking care, Bob will be the first person to give it to them, regardless of payment.”

Federal tax records show that Wilson made large bonuses based on how many patients were under hospice care each day.

Tax returns filed with the Internal Revenue Service for 2009, for instance, show that Wilson earned a base salary of $122,000, plus patient bonuses of nearly $207,000 for the year. That did not include retirement pay and other deferred compensation, including a clergy-housing allowance, that brought his total to more than $362,000. Wilson is a chaplain.

The latest allegations echo charges first made in October 2011 by a former hospice executive, who said he tried to get the hospice management to “do the right thing” by acknowledging improper Medicare billings and repaying the money.

When that effort failed, former vice president of finance Douglas Stone said, he was fired by Hospice of the Comforter. Stone filed his own federal whistleblower case but agreed in August to let the Department of Justice pursue the matter instead.

“I am pleased that after a more than yearlong investigation the Justice Department complaint describes in detail exactly what was alleged” in his own lawsuit, Stone said. “The Hospice of the Comforter Board of Directors had ample opportunity to do the right thing, follow the law, and return overpayments. Instead they allowed retaliation against a number of individuals making good faith efforts to report potential fraud.”

Wilson, who co-founded the hospice in 1990 and helped establish its well-regarded reputation in the community, referred a request for his comments to Lafferty. The attorney said Wilson is no longer CEO at Hospice of the Comforter, but he remains its president as well as chairman of the Comforter Health Care Group Board of Directors, the hospice’s parent company.

Although patients can and often do stay under hospice care for longer than the six-month guideline, a physician must periodically recertify the patient as terminally ill.

But at Hospice of the Comforter, the suit says, if a review committee recommended that a patient be discharged, the hospice would order more tests to delay the discharge and continue billing Medicare.

Wilson also had a list of patients whom nurses referred to in notes as FOBs, or “friends of Bob” who were not to be discharged regardless of what reviewers found, the suit says.

The total amount of actual damages, the government said, would have to be determined at trial, but the law allows the court to fine hospice as much as triple that amount.

Since May, Hospice of the Comforter has operated under a management agreement with Adventist Health System, the parent company of Florida Hospital chain, which reportedly had been interested in buying the facility at one point.

Spokeswoman Samantha O’Lenick would not comment on the lawsuit, noting that Adventist Health’s contract with the hospice went into effect after the whistleblower lawsuit was filed and so is not involved.

Sue Ryder’s Joyce Grove hospice in apartment conversion bid

Image caption The application to South Oxfordshire District Council is for 20 apartments for residential use

The future of a Sue Ryder hospice is in doubt after the charity applied for planning permission to convert the building into residential apartments.

The charity behind the Joyce Grove hospice, in Nettlebed, previously announced plans to move to the Townlands Community Hospital in Henley, but negotiations fell through .

The application to South Oxfordshire District Council is for 20 apartments.

But CEO Heidi Travis said the charity had “no immediate plans to move”.

‘Incredibly grateful’

She added: “We have taken this step to help inform us about all of the options that are available to us to enable the continued provision of the service for the long term.

“We will continue to deliver the same well regarded and respected services from this building.

“As always, we remain incredibly grateful for the community’s continued support, which enables us to be there for people at the most difficult time of their lives.”

The Edwardian property has 18 beds and stands in 11 hectares (27 acres) of land.

The Grade II-listed house was built by Robert Fleming, the grandfather of the James Bond author Ian Fleming.

People have been cared for at the house for more than 30 years but the charity cannot offer patients single rooms, and access via public transport is difficult.
