Hospice Care

United States

#1 Jan 26, 2013
This week I have learned something very disturbing. A family member was signed up for hospice care, and took a turn for the worse right as soon as hospice began their "treatments". Before the care began she was able to walk, carry a conversation, eat, drink, go out, stay at home alone, ect... She was not in the active stage of dying. She still had life left in her and a will to live! It is not normal for a person to go from that to in a coma in 2 days after Hospice care took over.

She was being kept sedated with morphine. We were told they were keeping her sedated because anything they tried to do her, like turn her, she cried in pain. She had broken her arm and that was the pain she was in, she also had developed a bed sore while in the hospital and it was painful. So they kept her sedated and wouldn't allow her food or water and she died of dehydration 7 days later.

When I saw what was being done to her I came home and started googling. I read horror story after horror story that were exactly the same. This can not be coincidence! What they were doing to her is called "terminal sedation" and it is being misused in this way to cause the early death of the terminally ill, elderly, and disabled. This method is being used by most hospices, and in some nursing homes, and hospitals.

This was the most inhumane thing I had ever seen! It is murder! I beg you to please check out what I am telling you so that you can learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones. The only way we can stop this from happening is to make others aware of it. Please go to www.hospicepatients.org and read the information there and the book "Stealth Euthanasia".

The most vulnerable of our nation are being treated worse than an inmate on death row, like a horse with a broken leg, like they are no longer useful!

You do realize that it is the family who signed up for the help from Hospice. Hospice has always been first and foremost up front about being a program designed for end of life pain management.

This is how I want to go, when it is time. Just drug me until I am gone. If you don't like the program, then don't use it. Better yet create another program as an alternative.
