Hey Guys and Girls, I am posting out of my comfort zone, but would ask you to please bear with me. I have a close relative, who is in hospice care, who recently having being asked to give his 'history' by a junior doctor, in front of a consultant, did so, and the younger doctor, after my relatives explanation said to the consultant, 'We will find out the actual cause post mortem'. My two sisters were present. The comments obviously caused upset. Was that professional, is that behaviour in this day and age normal, and if not what can I do about it. To my mind, it was entirely innapropriate, especially as the relative concerned has been told by both the nursing staff, and his familly that they had entered the hospice, to be as best as possible, returned to normallity. Any advice is greatfully received. I don't want to hang anyone here, (They have a difficult job), just trying to guage whether our outrage is justified. After all they work in a hospice, not boots. After all, in todays society, post mortem is a common phrase, which is understood by all.
