Granddaughter Alleges Mistreatment of Grandmother During Final Days Alive at Hospital

One family member is claiming a hospital did not treat her dying grandmother with the same dignity, respect, and care as staff would treat other patients. The initial assertion of mistreatment was posted on a social media outlet by the granddaughter, where the post went viral. Ultimately, the grandmother was transferred to a different hospital facility, where the granddaughter says her grandmother was finally treated with the respect and care she deserved during her final days.

When prompted about the first hospital stay, the granddaughter asked, “Were they trying to maximize the quality of life of my grandma during her last days, or were they just waiting for her to die?” The hospital eventually responded to the claims stating that while they were saddened to hear of her grandmother’s recent passing, appropriate and reasonable care was provided.  For more, read the story.
