Patient is in the home at present. I am not sure how the protocol between hospice and nursing home works if I admit my mom to a nursing home that has a contract with hospice. I can monitor medicines at home an make sure she is just not doped up on pain pills I am afraid if I admit to a nursing home that has contract with hospice they will just give her pain pills.
How do you get someone into a nursing home directly from home? I am told if not under hospice you have to go from the hospital.
