That’s right. She’s dead by every reasonable test medical science considers indicative. I think the family’s lawyer is just prepping the jury pool with this disrespectful charade.
The family should have a pretty strong case against the hospital and/or hospital staff. Obviously something went very wrong. The hospital will settle, because this case would be very ugly.
The other situation is how the hospital has handled this problem. I have listened to their spokesman on TV. If he is an example of how the family has been handled, it is no wonder there has been this disaster. Some of the comments coming from the hospital have been cold and rude. Some families cannot cope with this kind of tragedy, or have never developed the skills to address a crisis. Therefore it takes compassionate handling at the outset to help them. The hospital should have tried to gain at least one person within the family to understand the situation and to be the person to work with.
Unfortunately, the hospital expected them to listen to what they were told and to comply. But, why should they? Their child is in this situation due to something the personnel did or didn’t do. Should they trust the hospital?
The hospital comes across as having only one interest, the money this is costing them.
