Can a nursing home force a patient into hospice?
This nursing home has made all medical and financial decisions for my mom since she was admitted, they have left her unattended and has fallen off her bed and wheel chair to the point that she had to be operated on for fractures and broken bones on her knee. The nursing home now wants to put her in hospice. But prior to that call they called me because the doctor ordered physical therapy for her then a few days later they call about putting tubes to feed her and the last call they want to put her in hospice. It seems to me that the nursing home wants to get rid of her, and one more they can't find the original paper work when she was admitted to the nursing home.
