Spent time explaining my family members options. All options were discussed. My family was able to sit down with her and come up with a plan that we could all agree upon.

Not concerned about patient or family

Dr. Hudson was very insistent on placing a feeding tube in my dad, even though research has shown they do not improve quality or length of life in patients with dementia. She was not concerned about reducing his quality of life. She was unable to offer me any alternatives, just kept saying "It's a different standard of care if you decline the tube." I found out from the nurses that she meant hospice, but she never used the word. She told me if I declined, no one would feed him or give him meds. I felt like she was bullying me. She made me cry. I do not think she had my dad's best interests at heart. I think she just wanted to bill Medicare.
