My mother in law has kidney failure, she's very pale and breathless most times. We have a feeling that she will leave us soon. She spoke of a nurse from the 40s coming to see how she was feeling and to collect something. The same elderly nurse who used to come to check on her ill mother (about 50 years ago). This was two days ago. Today her legs feel cold up to over her knees. This nurse wasn't a family member or a friend but would now be deceased. Was this a Death Bed Vison? She's not constantly in bed, she's mobile. The skin around her eyes is red and itchy. She itches badly all over and is losing weight rapidly oven though she eats her meals. She's not overly hungry anymore. We asked a few times about the nurse visiting and she is adamant she has been to see her.

This is a delusion, perhaps accompanied by hallucination. Since she is dying I suppose you could consider it a death bed vision if that means something special to you.

Do you have a hospice nurse coming in? Would you consider putting hospice in place for the short time that is left?

Gone in a week? Not at all. When she stops eating and drinking, maybe ten days.

Does this mean she will be gone in a week? :(

"The nurse came to collect something" is a premonition. Sometimes the premonition includes angels or others who have passed on years ago. The brain suggests they are coming to accompany her to the other side. It is a self reassurance that they will not go on alone. Very common. Go along with it as long as she is comforted and not upset by the vision.
