Proper Hospice Regulation
Petition Background (Preamble):
The death certificate stated he died of Parkinson's disease when in fact in order to diagnosis this, one must have an autopsy. He did not get an autopsy and was mobile/alert and oriented but confused at times. They starved him to death and gave him morphine/oxycodone in massive amounts when he would get pain relief from two extra strength tylenols.
One point I want to make is that just because someone has a chronic illness does not mean he/she should go on hospice.
