Hospice of PBC has lost sight of why they went into the industry. They mis-represent themselves in their TV ads. Die with dignity is the not what my family member received. The patient got a bed sore under their care and they refused to treat it, by the time family insisted that the wound be treated, the wound engulfed the patient's backside. Bedsores and morphine is what this patient got. Enough drugs so they could not eat, talk or drink. What was supposed to be a 3month to 3 years death sentence with stage 2 unknown origin cancer turned into 3 weeks in hospice care. Be very afraid. Seriously, One doctor even said, "why treat it, the patient would not live long enough for it to matter" but it matter the patient suffered. Just when one thinks it could not get worse; when the patient passed away, they called family and said the patient died 5 minutes prior. The family arrives 37 minutes later and our beloved family member was completely stiff, eyes stuck open, sunk in face, ice cold, and yellow. The cremation company arrived and said, this patient has been dead at least 6-8 hours already and coming out of rig. Unforgiveable is what this company is. We are beside ourselves and riddled with guilt over picking Hospice of PBC. Do your homework for your loved one.

This hospice left us with a sick feeling about the care provided to my wonderful father. Not only did I have to literally beg them to give him stronger pain killers, when we were called by the nurse in a nursing facility where he was to tell us that he had just died we ran across the street from where we lived to his room and at midnight found a young girl in his room with the lights on, her feet up, doing her homework and flipping the TV channels with the TV blaring. My father was lying there dead. We went into a state of shock. This was supposed to be the great 24/7 crisis care. My mother cannot think about this without crying after an entire year has passed. I would never ever recommend this hospice to anyone.
