Has been in and out of intensive care for 3 months. Has congestive heart failure but cannot treat yet. Had a series of infections and intestinal bleeding. All they seem to do is perform tests and if “fix” one thing something else occurs. Contracted MSRA during one hospital stay, then got lung infection, line put in to drain that, line in to drain intestinal bleeding, now they want to put tube in to feed him directly into his stomach. (already had tube down throat and one down nose). The other problem I’m having is the doctors treating him do not return calls. I have his medical durable power of attorney for end of life decisions, but now they are calling me to give ok on treatment , because he no longer can. Frustrated and confused. Is there not some sort of patient representative between hospital esp doctors and family to better explain his health outlook ?
