Dad to hospital...
Dad's facility called me this evening for permission to take him to the ER as his hemoglobin levels dropped significantly and could be a bad sign with him being on blood thinners, possibly internal bleeding, but he was not in distress.
I need to meet them at the hospital with POA for healthcare, as dad is such a flight risk I know he will try to leave.
I don't know what the facility is asking of me - permission to try and extend his life or would they just leave him be otherwise? He has DNR orders, but he feels fine and all; something is obviously going on.
His regular Dr. is out of town, got the young Dr. not familiar with his case. Has anyone else had a facility call to ask permission?
