  •  I can't say enough good things about hospice care (11+ / 0-)

    My Dad had amazing support at the end, and his caregivers were particularly attentive to any indications he might be in pain, once he lost the ability to tell us himself how he felt.

    Couldn't agree more with what you said:

    Jesus Christ, people, the deathbed is no time to be squeamish about pain control.  I'm not even talking about a merciful life-ending cocktail, just decent pain control.

    Thank you for caring so much about your patients being in pain.
