I had a uncle who was in the care of Harbor Hospice at the Treemont Assisted Living. I visited my uncle many times while he was there, and what I am going to comment on is the last day of his life. When I got there on Saturday 20th, of last month he had turned for the worse. He was at the stage of the "DEATH RADDLE". Most people has never heard it, but like myself, I thought he had fluid on his lungs. We called Harbor Hospice around 1 PM, they never came, we called again at 2:30 PM, no one showed up until approx. 4:15 PM. I went with her so I could see what she was going to do. This person came in, set up her stuff on the side table and pulled out her blood pressure equipment and tried to take my uncle's blood pressure, which was taken at 1:00 pm, it was 112 over 90, which wasn't bad. I stood there looking at my uncle, he wasn't making any sound. She moves to his next arm and that's when I looked at my uncle and said, "My uncle is dead, he isn't breathing he is dead" She took out her scope to hear his heart and turned to us and shook her head and we knew he was gone. She left the room while the family came in. I won't go through that part. When she returned, no one was in there with her. After a few minutes I went into the room and this person had a sheet under my uncle's chin forcing his mouth shut. To see her do this to my uncle mad me mad. I told her to stop doing that and that the funeral home would take care of that. From watching this person who Harbor Hospice sent, I feel she should have check his heart beat first and not take his blood pressure. She needs more training and have a seasoned Hospice person with her. She acted like she wasn't sure what she was doing. My uncle passed at 4:30PM and it took the funeral home until 7:00 PM to pick him up. They sent a very small young lady out with no help in putting my uncle on the gurney. A friend of the family helped. What are these people thinking when 1) not knowing what to do when checking a person, 2) sending someone who can't left heavy bodies. Dead weight is very heavy. That's my review on Harbor Hospice and the funeral. mt
