Need a change in the Law?


Recommended Posts

Well clear cut or not, that is what I was told when my mum had her stroke and they didn't think she would pull through. They put her down as not for resuss without consulting me.


The first I knew about it was when they told me that was their decision.


She was 86, had a stroke, heart attack and was hypothermic when I found her.... so I guess the "she might not pull through" bit was a good guess!

I think Obs is right in saying that the medics are writing old folk off every day of the week on the basis of convenience.

Increasingly these days the 'sanctity of life' is weighed against the cost effectiveness of treatment.


Thought that Shipman was dead.
