Can doctors be compelled to provide futile care?

Another fascinating article today - raising a number of questions:

  • How long does it take to make a PVS diagnosis?
  • Trinitas Regional Medical Center is a Catholic teaching hospital - would this case have been handled differently if it occurred after November 2009?
  • This article highlights the tension between physicians, medical decision makers (i.e., family) and futile care.

Let’s stay aware of the New Jersey appeals court decision.
