Who Gets to Decide When to End Life Support?

Filed under: end of life,media related — Honilima @ 11:13 am


Although I am generally not a fan of Huffpost Live or of celebrity stories but this is a great discussion of who gets to decide when to end life support. The case is that of Bobbi Kristina Brown, who is 21 years old and the daughter of Whitney Houston. She has been in an induced coma for weeks. The experts tapped for this segment are excellent and features Seattle’s own UW Medical Center’s Dr. Randall Curtis.

You can also read more here in a piece written by Candi K. Cann entitled “Letting Someone You Love Die.” This is an important discussion to have with your loved ones, beyond just the decision maker, in case you are unable to make your own choices at the end.
