#NotDeadYet--#DoNotResuscitate--#DoNotIntubate--the most amazing matter of the review of the medical files was finding the sequential steps taken by the doctors at the Grey Nuns Hospital to prematurely terminate Rebecca.
In the 2014 ICU hospitalization, the doctor--let me call her Doctor Death--did not even bother to wait until the data card download could be obtained by the Grey Nuns Hospital. She simply went ahead and signed the prescription for premature termination. I am curious how she would feel now upon reading the two Protection for Persons in Care reports that detail the failures of staff to put on the BIPAP machine for Rebecca on two separate occasions. Would this have changed her mind?
Or would she have shrugged and said--Rebecca is terminal or as one other doctor put it a "palliative" case?
What goes on in these doctors? Who is in charge of their performance at hospitals? How does one compartmentalize these death decisions without due diligence in investigation? It's very problematic for handicapped citizens to face this sort of discriminatory treatment by the medical profession.
It is an indictment of the doctors involved and a wake up call for all families. Don't expect better for your handicapped family members. My handicapped sister went through five years of premature termination threat in continuing care in Alberta and it could be the lot of one of your own. Make sure to get the medical files. Give the handicapped a voice. Tell your stories.
