She came saw a snapshot of my father post surgery. Her bedside manner was kind at first, but she broke a professional boundary when she held his hand & led a man, that she knew for 24 hours to a decision to enter hospice. He was out of sorts & she completely overstepped When I asked her if certain blood tests were done, her answer: “what does it matter.” An alarming constrast to how she performed in front of my father. She also had suggested surgery &then changed her mind within a 12 hr period
