You are in hospice, but are expected to have 6 to 8 weeks to live. You are still ambulatory. You fall, you dislocate your shoulder, or your knee, or have a compound fracture. You are in agony, and know that will will only get worse. You don't want to go to the ER and be discharged from hospice. Do you have any other choices? What would happen if you got to an orthopedist and were refused treatment for the compound fracture because the office doesn't have the faculties for surgery?
