They just did this at a major Tulsa hospital to a friend's relative, age 36, who was on Medicare/Medicaid insurance. He was admitted to the hospital for breathing problems and bed sores on his legs. A "panel was held", relatives were not permitted to attend. A physician came out and informed the family that the antibiotics would be stopped,but something would be given him for pain. A nurse then came in and administered a "pain relief" medication through his IV, and within a very short period of time, he died.

Therefore, after this and having read the info in the link, I am tearing up all my living wills,and appointing a trusted health care proxy. I do not want to be overdosed on morphine by a "panels say so." http://www.hospicepatients.org/this-thing-cal...
