My husband was on Lasix for two weeks to treat for pleural effusions that were a side effect of the drug Revlimid. After two weeks the effusions were almost gone, And the PCP told him to stop taking the Lasix because he was dehydrated. Three days later he was given an IV of Lasix in the oncologist office because he had high Uris acid, which comes from dehydration. He continued to become more and more dehydrated and three days later had to go to the emergency room because he was too weak to stand. Even though they had in writing what had transpired that week, the first thing they did was give him double the dose of Lasix he had before. They never diagnosed or treated him for dehydration. Instead they diagnosed him with sepsis, pneumonia and respiratory failure. He had none of those. The hospital made him DNR and hospice comfort only care without any permission from anyone. Even though he was alert and oriented to person place and time, and was repeatedly asking for water, he was given nothing to drink, nothing to eat and his daily meds were stopped. He was in no pain or discomfort but he was drugged into an unconscious state with lorazepam and fentanyl. I finally told them to stop the narcotics. A few hours later he was awake and alert answering questions and talking. I was then told he had leukemia and two days to live. I wanted to get him out of that hospital, so I brought him home with hospice care. I planned on having him transferred to another hospital after I got home . I left the hospital to come home for the delivery of the hospital bed and three minutes after I left they started drugging him again. I was shocked when he arrived home unconscious. The hospice nurse immediately started to giving him lorazepam and oxycodone. When I ask her why she said he probably won't make it through the night and you don't want him going through with draw. So for 20 hours the drugs were put into his mouth until he died. After he died I searched hospital records and there's no diagnosis of leukemia, only a high white blood count which of course goes with dehydration. This was no accident, they intentionally killed and active extremely active man, who loved his life and his family. This was not a mistake. this was deliberate. One has to wonder how many other people this is being done to?
