Was My Father Given Haldol?

My father is a home hospice patient. Twice his Dr prescribed haldol. I never gave it to him. Each time I informed the Dr that he has Parkinson's and should not take haldol. Now he is in a inpatient hospice unit and I suspect he was given haldol based on his Parkinson's symptoms getting dramatically worse over a 24 hr period. My question is: how long after taking haldol can it be detected in the blood?

It has been found in the brains of deceased persons as long as three weeks after they last had any. In blood tests of living people, it looks like it might be detectable for a few days. This article might help.

It should never be given to elderly people, or to anyone who doesn't consent. With elderly, it's very dangerous for those who have dementia with Lewy bodies, which is similar in many ways to Parkinson's. it's just plain dangerous, doubling the odds of dying in elderly people with dementia and psychosis, but probably those without those conditions, too.
