My 90-year-old dad was diagnosed with osteomyelitis, a bone infection. He was in a nursing home for 6 wks of IV antibiotics. He had a heart attack and the hospital found he also has MRSA. His vascular surgeon said if he got an infection, there's nothing to do but try antibiotics and go on hospice. The infectious disease doctor wants him on vancomycin but the hospice people say that's too "aggressive" a treatment for him to go on hospice. Should I (POA) have them withhold all antibiotics in order to get him hospice care? Will Medicare still pay if I do that? Dad has dementia and now COPD, too, and he's ready to pass on. Has anyone else been in this situation or similar?
