Hospice is meant to be a 6 month benefit not a 48 hour one! Hospice isn’t a death sentence. Your terminal illness is. Hospice gives you hope for a quality of life with the time you have left. The sooner you access hospice care the more we can help you have quality of life. Oh, and morphine does not hasten death, it alleviates symptoms that make you miserable and unable to enjoy life.
