They use it as a sedative, so they can ignore the patient! Find another place for your Mom , or just care for her at home. I know it's a pain and an interruption but I did it for my Mom . She was with me in my home for only a month and a half and was not in pain just dying. She did have meds from her Dr and a visiting nurse came 2 times a week. It was an interruption in my life but I never felt so close to my Mom as that period. And now I realize it was a reversal, she cared for me as a baby, and I cared for her as a baby as she was dying. You will never regret this time, even though it is a hardship.

They use it on patients that they feel a disruptive, need too much attention. It will turn her into a zombie. They used it for the same on my Mother. Be very careful

maybe to make her relaxed and to stay as comfortable as possible. I hope it works out for you
