My dad recently passed away. He was on a lot of medication for the past 20 years due to an injury. With the many problems that are a side effect of pain meds, his kidneys were failing and he was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. My dad came from a family of alcoholics but did not drink at all while I was growing up. Later in life he and my mother would occasionally have a couple glasses of wine or beer. Not heavy drinkers by any means! When we picked up the death certificates, the cause of death was stated as cirrhosis of the liver and Alcohol. This is wrong! One of the doctors that I had met explained that his cirrhosis would be considered "non-alcoholic fatty liver disease." The hospice doctor that signed off on the death certificate said she is just going by what was in her notes from a doctor several months prior and she would not change it. My mom is devastated by this as she made a point to make sure my dad did not turn out like the rest of his family. We are having a hard time getting the doctor to change the death certificate. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
