My father has been on hospice here in Florida for close to 2 1/2 months now. He is on hospice for congestive heart failure and his arteries are blocked (2 of them 80% blocked 1 of them 100% blocked. Too weak for catherization) he is also ESRF with kidney function at 15%. Problem is that no matter what my mom and I ask for, hospice says they won’t cover it. We asked for help with transportation to dialysis ( because he is completely bedridden) they say no, they don’t cover preventative medice. We ask for insulate, they say no it’s not related to his heart. We ask for refills on his nitroglycerin, they say no it’s not on list of discharge meds from hospital (even though he was not in need of nitro upon discharge cause he had plenty of pills left from refill).
My argument is that all his health issues stem from years of uncontrolled diabetics. And should be covered. They disagree. Can someone explain to me the difference between hospice and euthanasia? I feel they are getting fed up as my father is taking too long to die.
