NPR quoted Susan Enguidanos of the USC Leonard Davis School on recent findings that hospices with the highest rate of so-called live discharges also have the highest profits.

There’s a concern, says Enguidanos, that by discharging patients early, some hospices may be “trying to avoid costs that they should be responsible for.”
