I worked as a hospice nurse for 12 years, and these accounts are accurate. It was an awesome privilege. I remember one experience that was not so awesome. A man who was known for being mean to his neighbors and then mean to our staff was sent to the ER for severe agitation during the last hours of his death. Hospice deaths are usually very peaceful, but he thrashed around that bed until the staff had no choice but to "knock him out" with morphine. We wondered if he caught a glimpse of where he was going.
