Information on quality of hospice care hard to find

Quality of hospice care varies widely in the U.S., and information on care quality is difficult to come by even by the standards of the healthcare sector, according to the Washington Post. The federal government publishes no consumer on data on hospice care quality, despite providing similar information on hospital, nursing home and home health agency quality. Congress required such information be made public in 2010, but the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services says the information will not be available until at least 2017, according to the Post.
