It’s quite a compelling story surrounding a common scenario I see in my daily work in the ICU. An 80 year old woman is fighting for more time to make end of life decisions for her brother, who is 78 and is currently terminally ill and unresponsive on a ventilator. Some quotes from the article:
He was taken to Summa on Sept. 8 and his terminal condition was revealed to his sister on Sept. 11.
Her attorney, Kevin Breen, of Fairlawn, said Eugenia Basheotis was unprepared for the sudden life-support decision and she simply wants to further contemplate her brother’s future medical care.
It certainly will be interesting to hear more details and how this story pans out…
