Make This Patient Go Bye Bye

An FBI investigation is underway at Novus Health Services in Frisco, Texas.  The founder of this hospice facility allegedly ordered staff to administer higher doses of pain medication to make patients die faster.  It’s said he texted various staff saying, “You need to make this patient go bye-bye.”  Four patients were given four times the required dose of pain medication.  I wish I could tell you this was an isolated incident, but we’re hearing reports throughout the nation that other hospice facilities operate in a much less crass but similar way.  I’m not saying all hospices do this.  Many operate totally within God’s law regarding innocent human life.  But more and more the evidence shows a mentality of “quality of life” is seeping in with people taking things into their own hands.
