My mother has been in memory care since September. She is 96. She has COPD and dementia. She is on hospice because of the COPD. Today she fell and broke her hip. She is in excruciating pain despite the morphine, and occasionally yells , “Help, Help!” Which is unbearable to listen to. They are slowly increasing her morphine. The hospice nurse said if she went to ER they would likely just send her back and tell them to adjust meds. My brother, who lives out of state, feels she should go to the hospital, and be x-rayed and maybe they could set it or do something more. I would like any advice. If she goes to the hospital her hospice would need to be terminated and I think that would be a very bad thing. I assume this will do her in, but does anyone have any other experience?
