WHY DYING WISHES WILL MAKE YOU QUESTION EVERYTHING

DON’T GET IT RIGHT GET IT WRITTEN

THIS POST IS PRIMARILY FOR THE YOUNGER WOMEN IN MY LIFE… MY DAUGHTERS, MY NIECES AND MY CO WORKERS!hair in you noseMost of you probably know what I do for a living. As a Hospice Nurse I see many many old people that are on their way out of this world. It is my job to see that they have their wishes honored. There is a “GREEN FORM” called a “POLST” which stands for Physicians Order for Life Sustaining Treatment that I often have to go over with them and fill out. It covers the basics, CPR, Medical Interventions, Antibiotics and Artificial Feeding Tube. 

Recently I was sent out to see a very old woman who was in a facility. I met with her niece to get her signed on to Hospice service. The niece was not thrilled about the care that she was receiving at the facility which is often the case, but she was clean her room was neat and smelled good and she did not look uncomfortable…except for one thing. 

Her nose. She had so much hair in her nose I don’t know how she could possible be comfortable, or breath adequately.

I wanted to point this out to her niece but somehow it did not seem appropriate, it was truly one of those elephant in the room moments. 

I made up my mind then and there to include that in my advance directive. 

IF I AM UNABLE TO NOTICE UNWANTED HAIR ON MY FACE INCLUDING NOSE, CHIN AND EARS, I DO/ DON’T WANT SOMEONE TO TAKE MEASURES TO REMOVE IT.

This is just one of the things I have added, others include,

IF I AM VERY OLD AND HAVE AN INFECTION IN MY LEG THAT WON’T HEAL DO/DON’T CUT MY LEG OFF

I have seen this so many times and they wind up dying without a leg. I want both of mine when I go out. 

Oh and here is the piece de resistance….

IF I AM VERY OLD AND HAVE INTRACTABLE DIARRHEA DO/DON’T INJECT ME WITH SOMEONE ELSES POOP

Yes it’s a real thing that they do sometimes….please please no thank you, I would rather sh_t myself to death.

Oh one last thing…
