My mother needed hospice care, and had financing to stay here. The staff decided that since she could go to the bathroom by herself, she needed to leave. I'm quite sure the reasoning behind this was so that they could open a bed for a wealthier patient. Yet, they adamantly refused to sign a transfer for her to another hospice across the state, and were very obtuse about her medical state. They kicked her out, and an elderly friend took care of her, until admitting her to Anmed Hosp., where we were then able to make a transfer to the other hospice (she had family there). I live in another state and made a number of phone calls to facilitate this. She died two weeks after being transferred there, still able to go to the bathroom by herself, by the way. Cancer. No other elderly person should have to be treated this way by a medical facility. Do not send your loved one here.
My mother lived in Anderson for 75 yrs, The last few yrs. She was in a home in Hendersoville, NC trying to get her back in Anderson. Her organs starterd shutting down. The hospics in hendersonville took over her care in the hospital. So that I cauld try to get her back to Anderson for her last days.But hospics of the up state would not take her. Firsst it was they had to come and see her so they could see if she was sick enough to take he. Which all hopics has the sane rules. Then they said that if she got better they would have to find her a place to live. She was not going to get better she was in a coma.They was a couple of rreason not to take her. But the only reason they did not give is that they didn't have a bed for her. So I could not fil her last thing she wanted. Thanks hopics of the upstate
