Complaint: When my mother’s condition was changed to hospice care, her condition at Columbine Health System deteriorated and she died, I felt, pre-maturely. After my mother was officially placed onto a hospice level of care, the powers that be at Columbine were determined to make her eat, drink, bath, toilet and get dressed as she always had prior and get up and be up daily. Then one day when an attempt was made to stand her up and dress her, she fell face first and hit the floor. She suffered a substantial contusion and head injury. This brought my mother un-needed pain in her remaining days of life and cut her life shorter. The Columbine management simply said, in regards to my mother’s passing that she was on hospice anyway. I cannot recommend this organization to family, friends or anyone for the care of their aged loved one.
