Nashua, NH Hospital Puts Patient's on Hospice/Palliative Care ILLEGALLY


This is how it's "Supposed" to work, but at this one Nashua Hospital be forewarned. It Doesn't!
You can get hospice care if you have Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) AND meet all of these conditions:
  • Your hospice doctor and your regular doctor or nurse practitioner (if you have one) certify that you’re terminally ill (you're expected to live 6 months or less).
  • You accept palliative care (for comfort) instead of care to cure your illness.
  • You sign a statement choosing hospice care instead of other Medicare-covered treatments for your terminal illness and related conditions.
Only your hospice doctor and your regular doctor or nurse practitioner (if you have one) can certify that you’re terminally ill and have a life expectancy of 6 months or less.
This is the scenario I witnessed:
First and foremost, you REFUSE Hospice/Palliative Care when it's offered.You don't sign ANY contracts. Even when coerced, you and your loved ones adamantly REFUSE. The patient states he doesn't want to die. He states he wants treatment. Well guess what? He's put on Palliative Care any way. He and his family never told. A man in a wheelchair comes to visit the patient in his Hospital room, never telling the patient who he is. His spouse ask's the Nurses who this man is. They state he's a Doctor, never bothering to mention that he's a Palliative Care Doctor. 
This Doctor start's visiting almost daily, jacking up the morphine dosage. Pretty soon the patient only sleeps. Every time he wakes up, he's given more morphine until the dosage hit's 225 mgs and the patient doesn't even know whether he's in pain or not. This Hospital has one GOOD Hospitalist who came in to see the patient and practically threw the Palliative Care Dr. out when he realized the patient was overdosed. He threw the Palliative Care Dr. off the case and took over himself.
Secondly, your own Doctor is never even contacted or consulted, so how can she certify you only have 6 month's or less to live? Even the Oncology Dr. gave him one year or more, not 6 months. 
This same Hospital performed daily lab tests, but never said a word on what they found. Never giving treatment or antibiotics for anything. If the patients family never obtained his Medical file, they never would have known that he had other illnesses which caused all the symptoms he had, but he was never treated for any of them. Hospice/Palliative Care only want to drug the patient with Morphine and let them die. This man stressed the fact he wanted treatment and didn't want to die. He was UNKNOWINGLY, ILLEGALLY forced into Palliative Care against his and his family's will.
The year or more to live that he was given in January 2017, ended up being less than three months because he contracted Sepsis in the Hospital. Sepsis that a Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner denied him antibiotics to treat. A Nurse Practitioner who had no business in the patients care, or should I say the care he never got? He had  pressure sores  on his back, along with never being treated with antibiotics for an infection he got after a bronchoscopy/biopsy at the same Hospital.
Palliative Care is for people who are dying and want to die. This patient was the love of my life, my Husband. He was NOT dying and he wanted to live and was denied life saving treatment by this Nashua Hospital. He would be alive today if Palliative Care wasn't ILLEGALLY thrown at him without his and his familiy's knowledge and acceptance!!!
