|My friend, in LTC|
This man, Mr. Rasouli, is in a coma, can do little for himself. The family cites their religious reasons for not turning off life support. The physicians believe there is nothing else they can do and want to let him go. It is important you have quality of life discussions with your family members. Would you want to live like this for two years or more? I've told my family, NO.
