I read this article today.
I have no additional words besides these--PLEASE discuss with your loved ones what their wishes are in the event they get admitted to a hospital. Encourage them to sign a medical power of attorney if they are in ill health or are in danger of falling ill presently. And then encourage them to file the documentation with the local hospital or other health care organizations. The situation in the article may have been alleviated or mitigated if the deceased person had documentation on file for themselves.

Hello, there! Welcome to my blog. I will use this blog as a platform for my writing. I will write about topics in the legal world, certainly, as well as everything else under the sun, because I have many interests (and viewpoints). All views expressed in this blog, unless otherwise noted, are mine alone. One of my interests is music--my wife believes that I should go on "Beat Shazam" because I know so many songs--and I will be, from time to time, analyzing song lyrics and how they relate to the legal world.
