  • Janette ★★★★★ a week ago

    I am very dissatisfied with how my Mother was treated by Amedisys staff. Without my knowledge, or, authorization, the Nurse gave her Morphine, ,Lorazapam, and other drugs, to end her life. Her Doctor said he NEVER authorized Morphine for her. She was not in severe pain nor, in a state severe enough to justify giving her controlled substances to end her life. She had never had any controlled substances, nor, any harmful drugs. In addition, she was physically abused with bruise marks on her arms, because the nurse claimed she couldn't get a blood pressure reading. She squeezed the cuff so tight two or three times, causing my mother to SCREAM to the top of her lungs. This action left her black and blue on both arms, causing more PAIN and Suffering Pain. My Mother suffered badly for the weeks following being given DRUGS, until her DEATH. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HOSPICE TO Any Family unless you need to take them out of their misery, or, expect them to Die. NO ONE should have the right to give someone DRUGS to end their LIFE.
