What I can’t get is the hospital’s and the attorney’s condescending attitude to the family when they might well be on the hook for any negligence during the original operation.
They know a suit is coming. Not much that they can do about that now.
Because it’s expensive to keep a brain dead human alive. I suspect the family is using it as a sort of punishment and extortion scheme hatched by their lawyer.
If the hospital doctors had shown more compassion instead of being heartless and cold then perhaps the family would have agreed with the doctor’s reccomendation. I get the family’s rejection of it considering the inconsiderate tone from the hospital and its lawyers.
One doesn’t treat a grieving family like non-human pieces of crap.
Condescending is the new way to treat your patients and family. Spent evening in ER on New Years Day with family member with ALZ... one nurse in particular was pretty much acting like a DMV clerk.. rude, indifferent and pretty much no compassion or respect for any patient in her care. This is the new reality in health care. I was pretty much amazed that no one reigned her in.
