Hospice care plays a critical role in supporting terminally ill patients and their families during their final stages of life.
Hospice care is a type of healthcare service provided to patients who have a life-limiting illness and are approaching the end of their lives.
Patients receiving care from for-profit hospices have substantially worse care experiences than patients who receive care from not-for-profit hospices.
