When I think of 6 months prognosis that is an awfully long time. The most beneficial hospice care I have experienced was when a friend was truly at the end of life and was enrolled in hospice for the last 48 hours of his life. I would like to see the statistics on dosages of medications and the time it takes for the person to die after they enroll. It is an ethical slippery slidey slope when you are dealing with easing death and to be careful not to shorten life.
