First off I don't need anybody to tell me what hospice is I worked for hospice 2 and a half years I know what its all about. But my mother who is 56 has been in and out of the hospital since Oct with returning pneumonia now they say its cleared up and shes going to get better. But they admitted her to hospice for failure to thrive she asked the doctor was she dieing and he told her upfront no she wasn't home health wouldn't take her with her insurance and hospice could maintain her until she got stronger I don't understand how they did this. But her doctor said more and more people are being maintained on hospice until they get better. Has anybody else heard of this?
