Protecting Patients from Hospitals

If I had a child who was seriously ill, I wouldn’t want him to be at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas. Joey Cronin slipped into a coma after a severe asthma attack. The hospital was quick to want to label him brain dead. The family had to get a court order to keep him on the ventilator and get him a feeding tube. They just wanted to be able to transfer him to somewhere safe. Now Joey’s breathing on his own and is wiggling his toes. Sadly, many state laws permit this kind of treatment of patients. You need to know your rights and be aware of how to get help should you be in the same situation. Visit today’s broadcast link at life issues dot org. You’ll find the essential information you need to protect your loved one when they’re facing a critical illness.
