I agreed to St. Mary's hospice care provided at a private facility, not the hospital facility, for a friend, based on an ER doctor's recommendation. I had the health care power of attorney and agreed to a DNR order, but no other restrictions, as far as I know. I should have known better because I knew the history of the patient well, but I had never had experience with hospice before.
Do not ever let them talk you into hospice care unless your loved one has a clearly terminal illness with only a few days to live. Once I agreed to hospice, the nurse shook her finger at me and told me "never call 911, you must call us." It was not made clear that there would be absolutely no services provided, except bathing and an occasional visit by a nurse. I had to arrange for another person to sit with the patient continuously just to see if they asked for food or water. I will never forgive myself for not understanding well enough what this meant and agreeing to the "service" when the patient was clearly not ready for it.
