Hospice Patient With An AICD

  1. I work in Hospice and Palliative Care and one of my coworkers mentioned one of her patients has an AICD. I don't know if anyone approached him about getting it turned off since he's on Hospice but doesn't it have to be turned off after his death?

    In the hospital when the patient is a DNR we do not turn them off until after they pass away.
