“If a person is truly brain dead and being kept alive by some machines that keep her breathing and her heart beating — then it is time to admit that she is dead”
Perhaps so. Perhaps not.
But who are you, or me, to decide.
Children’s is currently providing care that Children’s thinks should cease. Children’s has not yet ceased this care. Another medical institution has offered to continue care, thus allowing Children’s to cease their care.
Yet Children’s is actively, purposely obstructing this transfer of care to take place.
Knee jerk responses indicting the hospital are sad to see. You cannot keep giving million dollar treatments to a dead person. The fact that this person died after tonsillectomy does not automatically mean something was done erroneously.
Yet Childrens is actively, purposely obstructing this transfer of care to take place.
From the article
Straus, the hospital's lawyer, reiterated in his letter that the hospital would release the girl's body as soon as her family provided a detailed plan outlining how the move would be accomplished and written permission from the coroner. But he said neither has been submitted.
"No facility has stated, unconditionally or otherwise, that it is prepared to immediately accept Jahi's body," he wrote.
