It’s been suggested that her family indulged her want of food even though she was not supposed to eat anything, therefore causing the bleeding problem that led to her death.

She came to in recovery, asked for a popsicle. Soon, she started to bleed from the mouth. The grandmother, a nurse, demanded a suction tube for the blood to be suctioned out of her mouth. She should never have been talking, asking for a popsicle, etc.. If that process was initiated by the mother, there are troubles afoot.

what parental negligence?

There are reports that at least three of the family members suctioned blood from Jahi's throat before alerting the ICU nurses that there was a problem. Over-aggressive suctioning could have exacerbated the bleeding problem.

The grandmother, who is an LPN and not an RN, admitted in an interview that she suctioned blood from Jahi's throat.

These reports of family involvement come from family members of other patients in the ICU who are not covered by HIPAA.

There are also reports - which I have never been able to trace except for comments to articles - that the mother brought a cheeseburger to the ICU for Jahi to eat post-surgery. I doubt it, but anything's possible.
