Wait a minute. Hospice means no more tests, no more procedures or prodding. The MD already has tests that indicate the patient is terminal or they would not refer him to Hospice. So decide which way you want to go.
A hospice physician will only provide comfort care. There are no more trips to the ER, just comfort care at home.
