    they tried to put a tube down my mom's nose while she had a "do not intubate" order and even though she was barely conscious she fought against them, turning her head this way and that and making grunting sounds, until they called me and asked me what they should do.

    whereupon I responded that she had a DNI and they should respect it.

    They made me come to the hospital and sign another one.

    people who have advocates do better than those who don't!

    Praise to irishwitch for being there for her husband!!!

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.

      Rolling my eyes that they made you come and sign another one, like the first one didn't count. Sigh ! I'm so sorry you and she were put through all that :(

      Yup, I always tell people who are entering or in the hospital that they should have someone who can advocate on their behalf, for so many important reasons.

      Praise to irishwitch for being pushy on behalf of her husband !

      Torture is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is inflicting it on whom.
