It sounds like you are claiming medical malpractice. How long ago did this happen?

Thanks for the additional information. It sounds like you would want a private consultation with a medical malpractice attorney in your area. There is usually no charge for the consultation. Possibly, I can get you a lawyer referral service number for you. What county did this occur?

I guess my question is if he has a poa on file at the hospital who referred him to hospice why would they even consider hospice if he wanted everything possible to PROLONG life.but I don't understand how they came to him having cancer and less then 6 months to live I handle all his medical and the drs have said it's probable cancer but every biopsy has came back negative I've never been told by any of his primary drs that he's been diagnosed and was terminally ill when the nurse came to my home and said he had cancer I told her that was the first I've ever heard he had cancer I asked her to show me in his medical file when and where he was diagnosed she came back three days later and said she couldn't find anything but a note from a Dr.At San martin hospital by that time my father was literally unconscious from all the medication I was so distraught and confused it didn't click to get him out of there care next thing you know his gone less then two wks
