Thankfully here in the Brooklyn and Manhattan area hospital if the person is dying they let the family round the clock they have a limit upto 6 ppl. during the day but sleep over only 1 person is allowed. We rather take turns taking care of our dying loved ones bc is very draining when they are dying to witness that.
I remember I was with my dying mother in law and her own grown man sons used to take their time to come in so it was 11:30 pm something and I was anxious since i knew the time was approaching, I also had my 3 kids at home waiting for me. I had bathe her (helped by a nurse too), I combed her hair and talked until she fell asleep. Her older son finally shows up and when he kissed her she woke up, she said thank you to me in her short breaths, and we said goodbye I kissed her and left. As I’m entering my front door I hear my house phone ring and I run to pick it up, her son told me that she asked him to get her some water so he went to the nurse station and when he went back she had a smile in her face and had passed away with a peaceful look and a smile in her face and he was thanking me bc. it was the first time she looked so much at peace (it took 11 days before she passed away).
Of course now ppl die all alone and my heart breaks bc i know having someone there makes all the difference.
I noticed in K dramas they omit the Hospital’s theme; unless is a Doctor’s theme drama.
