A new hospice nurse come in and gave my mother 2 mil adavain and 1 mil hydromorophone. Every 4 hrs.
She was at the end of life from COPD. My mother was alert and not in agony.
We never knew it would make her unconscious and she would die in 4 days. After 2 days I asked him to lower the dosage but I wasnt there ( I left thinking she would be ok.) So I don't know what he did. She never woke up. Isn't their job to keep my mother conscious at the lowest level of pain possible? Thats what we were trying to achieve but this time I could not wake her up. Should he have told us. Should he have started with a lower dose.
