How Mom’s Death Changed My Thinking About End-of-Life Care

ProPublica has co-published with The Washington Post a very good story by Charles Ornstein that described his family’s discussion about withdrawing life support from his Mother.

He writes: “”You never need to rush the decision-making,” he told me. “It should always be about making the right decision for the patient and the family. … We have plenty of money in the U.S. health-care system to make sure that we’re supporting families in coming to a decision that they can all feel good about. I feel very strongly about that.””
