Your family member, sick and in pain, is in a hospital or nursing home and no one is available to help because the person is the next room is in critical condition and the entire floor staff is rushing around to help this person. You empathize thinking that if you were in a similar situation you would want everyone rushing around to save you. What you really do not know is that this emergency is due in some cases to financial self interest or lack of staff education regarding critical or end of life care. Most individuals do not fear death as much as the experience of a painful death and many nursing homes and assisted living facility staff do not have the training or desire to educate family members about hospice and palliative care services.
