Is Dilaudid the same as Morphine?

Does Dilaudid have the same properties as morphine? My mother is currently on Dilaudid at the rest home for pain and is in hospice care. She has always had a bad reaction to morphine, in that it makes her agitated and extremely confused. Would this medication have the same affect?
