If your dad's vomiting is caused by nausea, are they doing anything to help with the nausea? Zofran and Kytril are two expensive drugs that help some people when the less expensive stuff doesn't work. Have they tried that? This sounds like a doctor needs to be involved, for patient comfort if nothing else. There certainly should be something that Hospice can do (other than drug him to the point of unconsciousness) to help with this condition. Keep pushing for answers, maybe even call the hospice organization and ask for someone else to review his case to see if something further can be suggested.
