They admitted my dying mother in late September /early October 2016 knowing she was actively dying and was unable to do ANY rehabilitation. So many things happened that I described in detail on Google. Worth reading, I'll assure you. Mom was placed at the end of the hall and ignored. She was in pain, and the nurses were giving her tylenol behind my back. I do know cancer pain in dying patients, as I've been a nurse since 1992, with much experience in hospice. Until January 2015, I taught nursing. 3 of my previous nursing students work at this facility
One took care of Mom and was very kind and attentive. Another one had been recently appointed as unit manager on Mom's wing, and did some very unethical things. I am so glad that Mom spent her last night at a hospice house prior to passing, and not in that horrible place. I gave official kudos to all but 2 if Mom's nurses, not knowing about the tylenol incident. (Mom had stage IV lung cancer with metastasis to her brain, liver. And spleen.) She also had 3 pressure ulcers on her bottom and had a history of degeneration in her spine so bad that she had injections for years. But, according to many of her nurses, she didn't have pain, right? She was grimacing during her entire time there, as well as thrashing in the bed and moaning. But the way less educated and experienced nurses know more than me? I spent every possible moment with her, even sleeping in her room except for brief moments when I'd eat &shower. I returned once and her bed was sitting straight up in the dark. She had drool and boost dripping from her mouth. She was the dying woman at the end of the hall.
