True. Unless a family member knows the patient's family physician to secure a Living Will, I'm quite sure it can still be a dilemma.
Best thing is to make sure someone close to you knows where it can be found. But that doesn't always happen.
People are often pressured into signing "living wills" in an emotional moment, against their better judgment. Most hospitals will not pull the plug (assist suicide) on a patient that has a reasonable chance of recovery, regardless of such documents, nor should they. The living will is just a starting point for litigation.

If you want Grandma to pass away peacefully after she has a massive stroke, don't call 911.

As far as a hospital is concerned, if they don't see the paper-it doesn't exist, and the next of kin makes the decisions. There is a pecking order for that-spouse, adult children in order of age, parents, siblings in order of age, grandchildren, other family members, adult friend.

You did not like the fanny kicking the hawks gave the niners? I loved it. Hoping for the same result on the return meeting. Could be a lu lu. Both teams will be in the playoffs, I would not be surprized if one of the wins the whole enchalada.
Peace

Why don't you come back and talk about this when you know what you are talking about. A person has the right to refuse treatment, either by words or by having a living will-as long as it can be produced, it will be honored.

So our "symbolism over substance" president has demonstrated in the last few weeks why you don't hire the guy that lacks the credentials, character, and resume for the job. Enough were baffled by the bullshit to be convinced that he was 'smart" enough for the job even without the executive level management experience necessary for the presidency of the United States. Brilliant campaigning is one thing. Something all successful politicians must be able to do, and Barry does it better then most, but the time for campaigning is over. It's time to lead and this guy is out playing golf, blaming republicans, and giving Russia power it has not had for the last 25 years. To think we have to suffer three more years before the democrats try and convince us that Hillary is the answer to all the woes of the country and the world. After all, every thing that is bad today, which is a whole bunch, is all the fault of the republicans. Just ask any democrat or the president himself. They'll tell you all right. It's those rascally republicans and their hate for the whole country.
Obama lacks the intellect, decision-making ability, and work ethic to be President...but he sure is one hell of a shuck -and-jive campaigner.

RERUN DOG AND PONY SHOW

Mrs. Feinstein, who was first thrust into the national spotlight as president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors announcing the shooting deaths of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, said,“Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”

President Obama was one of the first to link Monday’s incident to the larger issue of gun violence and the legislative effort to curb it, though he did so without explicitly calling, as he has done repeatedly, for gun control measures.

“So we are confronting yet another mass shooting, and today it happened on a military installation in our nation’s capital,” Mr. Obama said as he opened an economic speech at the White House.

“Obviously, we’re going to be investigating thoroughly what happened, as we do so many of these shootings, sadly, that have happened, and do everything that we can to prevent them,” the president said.

Power outage outrage
When FOX 2 asked Brown if he gave warning of a planned power shut down Brown says "we didn't get into details like that."
That's a minor detail, right? That you're going to turn off the power to dozens of businesses without warning, on the 12-year anniversary of 9/11, on the hottest day of summer, two days after a deputy was stabbed inside Frank Murphy Hall of Justice? That's not worth mentioning?

He also makes the mistake of insulating himself with only four or five people being allowed in the inner circle who don't have the experience or savvy to give him the right advise or to rein him in.
Obama needs another Kissinger. Instead of Jarrett and Axelrod.
It's also why this president has not reached out to anyone to get the right advise - a form of narcissism.
Obama needs one person with sound judgment and the balls to stand up to him.

Maybe, maybe not, particularly if the closest relative objects.

Seems like you work at a "hospital" that is afraid to turn away the common cold at the ER, but is willing to let patients die when they can be saved.

Tell us where so that we can stay away.

The motivation behind living wills is often financial rather than compassionate.

Or if they have a living will. A living will spells out exactly what treatment the person wants to receive should they be unable to communicate that verbally.

Students taken to mosque, given copies of Koran, while a student who opted out was given a worksheet on Islamic tolerance that said Muslims treat conquered nations better than Americans treat minorities.
