The most disturbing call I've had all year
As you may have heard or read, New Brunswick’s largest health authority announced last week it will move from a "do-or-do-not resuscitate" policy to one that gives patients more choices about end-of-life care.
As of this December, some patients in the Moncton-area Horizon Health Network will have four options:
1) Pull out all the stops to save me;
2) Don’t revive me but give me intensive care unit care;
3) Don’t bring me back to life but keep offering relevant treatment, or...
4) Just keep me comfortable until I die.
As we were discussing this on-air, a call came in from Katarina. Now, I'm rarely at a loss for words... but she told me a story about her husband that left me speechless. Listen and let me know what you think.
