Curious about the administration of pain medication (Morphine) and possibly speeding up a patient's death.
i have done a lot of hospice and they will die either way you go, so send them out peacefully. i have given so much morphine you could fill several swimming pools . sometimes giving several cc's (20mg/1 ml) every 30 or 15 minutes. of course these are cancer patients and are actively dying. i have no reserves what so ever about giving it.. if they are in pain and dying ....give it
