Alberta Medical Association Sponsored · Alberta patients are telling us what is and isn’t working in Alberta’s health care system.-----Julie Ali The Alberta Medical Association needs to do work on the area of "Do Not Resuscitate" orders. My handicapped sister had a DNR for years at the Grey Nuns Hospital. In her medical files I found that doctors were indicating that she was capable of health care decisions when she was not. This type of junk is not acceptable. The Association needs to provide information to doctors about the requirement to follow the personal directive requirements for full resuscitation. When the patient is a severely handicapped person they are to observe special precautions rather than expedient medical team work to ensure premature termination. If the association does not take action, the rights of the mentally ill will be ignored and this is problematic in terms of future legal challenges. It is always best to think of the patient first rather than the costs of the patient to the medical system. The severely handicapped patient must receive accommodation and services. This is their right. Instead of providing integrated care plans to ensure that such patients are compliant and kept doctors, doctors at the Grey Nuns Hospital seem to believe that it is there interrogative to unilaterally terminate such patients. It's not right. And I can assure that families of severely handicapped patients will not stay silent about such attempts at premature termination for no good reason. I encourage the doctors to look to their legal counsel and consult them. The severely handicapped patient requires full due diligence by doctors and just getting a team of doctors to agree to prematurely terminate someone is not good enough. #NotDeadYet #PrematureTermination Like · Reply · Just now
