FAMILY MEMBERS TOLD THEY CANNOT SEE THEIR DYING RELATIVE UNLESS THEY SIGN END-OF-LIFE PAPERS AND THEN HOSPITAL RENEGES AND ONLY ALLOWS TWO MEMBERS IN ROOM WITH HER
Patient Asked to Give Her Permission to be Ventilated While She is Sedated with Fentanyl and Ativan
My mom died on October 26, 2021! She had so much life left to live. She went to the hospital with burning in her back while being sick with COVID. On September 8, 2021, she was admitted. That was the last time any of her family got to see her until the day she died!
We would call on her phone but she couldn’t talk for too long. She would message my sisters and I and tell us how they weren’t checking on her often and how she felt gross from them not letting her get cleaned. She did not get cleaned for almost two weeks. Her nose kept bleeding and they did not clean or moisturize her nostrils.

We told the doctors we did not want her on any sedatives and they gave them to her anyways. In fact, they got her permission to be put on the ventilator when she was sedated on Fentanyl and Ativan and should not have been able to make that decision.
She did not even realize she was on Remdesivir until her fourth day of being on it! I told them, “NO Remdesivir or Vancomycin”! They ended up putting her on the Vancomycin a second time as well for a fever. Four days before she died her organs were still fine until they gave her the Vancomycin again!
There was a pressure wound we found on her foot the day she died that they didn’t even realize was there! It was the size of a tennis ball. They tried talking us into signing a Do Not Resuscitate over and over on her second day on the ventilator! They told us the only way we could see her was if it was end of life and when we agreed to signing those papers, they changed what was said and all of my family did not get to say goodbye, only my sister and me!
Not even her husband got to be with her when she passed! I even told the hospital that I went to the news about it! They did not care! They had my whole family go up to that hospital thinking we were going to be able to say goodbye and be with her while she passed. Instead, they all had to sit outside in the rain and watch her window from two stories up!
I have never felt so much evil in my life! I want them to pay for what they did! They murdered my mother that I would have had for another 20 plus years! Not to mention all of her grandchildren have to grow up without their GG! RIP Sweet Angel! We love you Mommy!
