"Briton prepares for Swiss suicide"

BBC article

Since I know that this theme has been discussed on various threads, I just want to post these news ...

However, I would be interested much in getting to know the actual status of hospices in various countries!

I've seen a hospice in a major teaching hospital in Boston. I was not impressed with it. Based on this one hospital, I would rather die at home than in the hospital. Sad

Well, we have about some hundred hospices here in Germany, some more based on palliative medcin, a few more hospices in the "classical" sense (="waiting to die"), most more the kind of "different to hospital" (= about 50% of the patients go home after some time).

Knowing several of any of above kinds, I think, they are really doing a very good job there.

Most health insurance plans in the USA will pay for hospice care in a hospital, if the MD will certifiy that the patient has 6 months or less to live.
