My mother was misdiagnosed with aspirating by a speech therapist at the hospital . She was given the option of a feeding tube surgically put in or hospice and comfort care and opted for the latter . Once she was in the care home , they determined she was not aspirating . But they wouldn't take her off " comfort care " - which to them meant not giving her her regular medications for her heart , blood pressure , named's , warfare - which in itself is likely to cause death , further , they immediately started giving her morphine ( although she was not in pain ) , and two other deadly prescriptions and withholding food and water . They refused to acknowledge my Power of Attorney and per my brother's prior Power of Atty , refused to discuss anything with me . She died Sun . . Do I have a case ?
