he setting is comfortable."

To improve end-of-life care in nursing homes, the team made 15 recommendations, including:

  • improve training for nursing home aides, nurses and administrators, including skills in identifying and managing symptoms and communicating with families;

  • improve physician training, including giving medical residents experience in following patients as they leave the hospital to enter a nursing home;

  • increase reimbursements to nursing homes to boost staffing levels;

  • provide incentives and remove financial disincentives for nursing homes to contract with Medicare-certified hospices;

  • include information about hospice care in the federal Patients' Bill of Rights.
