Mom signed an advanced directive DNR and keeps changing it. Any advice?
After a congestive heart failure hospitalization & rehab this past summer, Mom signed an advanced directive DNR. A week ago she went unconscious at home; was discovered by her home health nurse, recessitated by EMT, & maintained at ICU; then went to regular hospital. While in ICU she signed a previously written will with her lawyer, notary, & witness present. I am now POA & executor. Yesterday she freaked out as hospital staff were giving her DNR labeling, saying people were trying to get rid of her, and changed the DNR. I feel the pallatative care nurse is stirring up the situation rather than calming it. I have both legal & medical POA since the ICU will signing, but am worn out already from the dramatic antics of my mom, my sister and her sons, AND the nurse. I've decided I am going to wait until called upon, since my mom thrives on drama. Any advice?
