Can I ask for an autopsy be performed on my brother even if his wife doesn't want to? What about his(our) parents asking for one?
My brother is on his death bed, and while his wife seems to have answer for everything, how he got to this point over the last month seems suspicious. Hospice has taken over and to my understanding, goes over his medical records before determining whether he can be saved or not. One of our bigger issues, is we can't get any information from hospice without her consent and she is a power-hungry b**** and likes to have control. We don't know how or why hospice came to their decision and have to take his wife's word which is worth nothing.
We would like to have an autopsy done just to see if his dying/death is what she says. The family would be able to get some closure without having to wonder if there was more to what happened than what we know.
