Not all hospices operate the same way! Elizabeth Hospice caused great pain and suffering to my father for failing to do their mandated job and provide adequate pain medication. Executive management wo...n't respond after 2 weeks. My father suffered at the hands of Elizabeth Hospice. Find a hospice that isn't going to fail at the time of death, which took my father 7 days, all without pain relief. He couldn't swallow, move or talk. He had no food or water for 7 days, yet Elizabeth Hospice doctors would only give him tablet form of morphine??? See More

My mother has been in hospice for over a year. They have been so wonderful. She passed last night at a time when 2 nurses were here. They were wonderful at the end of this journey. Thank you so much
