TIA RICHARDS started this petition to GILCHRIST and

I wanted to voice my concerns for the care and well beings of family members that have to be placed in Hospice Care specifically Gilchrist Hospice Towson , Maryland. Many cases its for a irreversible illness but not all patients admitted are at the End of Life stage of their illness yet this facility treats everyone with the same drugs weather they need it or not and everyone ises the term " Comfortable" to increase these dosages of drugs so patients are incapacitated, even if the enter walking ,talking and able to make their own decisions this facility consistently over medicate  patients until they no longer can communicate and tells families they are just very tired and its apart of end of life. Families tend to trust the facility and staff because the facility is well maintained and staff are welcoming giving the illusion of great healthcare. Because people enter into facility with an illness and usually do not leave until they pass away , autopsies and investigation of cause of death is never questioned just assumed . Many times new onset illnesses are caused or acquired while at facility and Doctor in charge will refuse to treat no matter how UNCOMFORTABLE the patient is and it eventually causes death. The Hospice facility will only put down the known illness down as cause of death. As a Primary caregiver you try to make the best decisions for your loved ones but there is no worser feeling than the feeling of regret you get in your stomach when you see your loved one was NOT treated properly and they relied on you to find the best care and they died suffering the complete opposite of what their wishes were or your intent. So if you or your family has experienced this from Gilchrist or Hospice care please sign to help change the way Hospice care is done.
