HOSPICE CARE - The Neglect

"Investigation reveals pattern of Neglect by Hospice caretakers" PBS NewsHour 10/26/2017

Excerpt


SUMMARY:  In-home hospice care promises 24/7 support for dying patient's needs, but a new investigation combed through thousands of hospice inspection records and found that calls for help in times of crisis were met with delays, no-shows or were never answered.  John Yang is joined by JoNel Allecia of Kaiser Health News to discuss the neglect for patients and the lack of oversight.
