New Yorker article about a hospice nurse.

Started by

I don't know if any of you can get access to the New Yorker magazine this week; there is a terrific article about the day to day life of a Hospice Nurse in NYC, including information about the administration of morphine, adult children and their issues and the like. It's a good read.


It's a long article "The Threshhold" by Larissa MacFarquhar, but well worth the time spent reading it. New Yorker publication dates are July 11 & 18, 2016. Good grief, I never thought there was Hospice for children. Wow.
Oh yes, Pam. Hospice for terminal childremn....unfortunately, a thriving thing ( (won't say business, because it's not. But it is so necessary)
Babalou, thank you for directing us to that article. It was a good read which had a lot of good information.
