Sorry to read the two complaints below. I worked at CT Hospice from 2006 to 2008 and it was the best working experience I have ever had. It appears that there are a lot of new people there and even a new administration. I've lost touch

With the exception of one nurse and one social worker who were both very helpful, my wife was being treated as if she were an army recruit. They handled my wife with physical roughness and showed a complete lack of empathy for my wife and for me and my family. Their method of treating a patient is to over dose them with so much pain medication they will not be able to create a problem to the nurses. The first night after our arrival, my wife was awake at midnight and wanted to talk to me. We did so at a low whisper despite other patients in the room who were NOT being disturbed. However, one officious nurse came in at 1am to sternly tell me to be quiet. At 2pm the same nurse wedged herself between my wife and me and began giving her 4 shots. My wife immediately lost consciousness and we were unable to continue to discuss the important afterlife decisions we needed to make. When I confronted the nurse to seek what she gave my wife, she responded "your wife needs to sleep". I assume this nurse thought she was God. My wife was so deeply sedated she did not show any sign of response until 1:30pm the next day, just a short time before our daughter was to arrive from Europe to see her. All but one of the remaining nurses, were equally poor. I would have been more comfortable having my wife treated at home. This hospice is a disgrace and all the nurses need to get some special training. I am convinced that the overmedication of pain medicine hastened my wife's death and provided the family with insufficient time to discuss important matters. I would even come close to saying that this hospice may have murdered my wife, although I knew she was a terminal case and would have succumbed in due course. These are stong words and I plan to speak with Yale NH Hospital, who recommended the hospice, to be very cautious in the future.
(Yale, while a hospital, treated my wife superbly and was a more true hospice. Bravo YNHH! You are truly professional and I highly recommend you.)
