Commentary on Washington Post article
August 21, 2014

What has been reported is not an accurate portrayal of hospice care in the U.S. Virtually all of our providers are doing the right thing and providing the highest quality care to patients and their loved ones.

It was a year ago on August 22 that our colleague and friend Galen Miller died unexpectedly.  At the time of his death, Galen was serving as the Executive Vice President of NHPCO and its affiliated organizations.

Those of us at NHPCO, NHF, Global Partners in Care, and Hospice Action Network wanted to take a moment to reflect on Galen’s gifts to the field on this anniversary of his death.

Comment from NHPCO on a Washington Post Article

The Washington Post article, “Rising rates of hospice discharge in U.S. raise questions about quality of care” (08/06/14, online) looks at the issue of live discharges and once again tends to paint a one-side picture of the field.

 Live discharges are not an uncommon occurrence in hospice nor is the effort to understand them.
