How do you determine when to call hospice rather than hospitalize?
Mother is in a board and care. Has not eaten a full meal in 3 days and is now not urinating. Bloodwork not in yet, Dr. has ordered antibiotic for urinary tract infection, but she hasn't been able to keep pill down. She is 91 and does not want to go to hospital.-it is Saturday morning and they wish me to take her this morning. Any advice?
