AFTER PATIENT AND HER DAUGHTER REFUSE DNR, HOSPITAL WITHHOLDS HER DIURETIC (“WATER PILLS”)
Daughter Gives Her Mother Juice and Ensure and Hospital Has Security Kick Her Out
This wasn’t even Covid but during the time they were trying to euthanize seniors. My mother had a urinary tract infection (UTI)! I called every shift to confirm she received her medications, was allowed two-hour visits, but I called constantly at shift change.
The night before she was to be discharged, I called the nurse before bedtime and told her to make sure her BiPap was on correctly and, guess what, of course, she didn’t have the oxygen on. She miraculously survived and then they started pushing a Do Not Resuscitate. Both mom and I said no and then they began to withhold her diuretic, a simple life-saving medication, unbeknownst to either of us, until her levels rose to 3600! They began saying that she couldn’t swallow, but she could swallow fine.
My mom told me to get her out as she was starving and thirsty, so I gave her orange juice and Ensure, and they sent security to kick me out and administered more Fentanyl! She wasn’t in pain! They killed her on Christmas Day for a UTI! It is surreal.
I will continue to fight for others until something is done.
