It happens all too often: families come to see me, distressed, because they don’t know what to do when their loved one has suffered a serious illness or becomes incapacitated. They don’t know what type of medical interventions their loved one would want, how they feel about artificial nutrition, like a feeding tube, or if they should just try and keep them comfortable. It adds tremendous pressure on an already difficult situation.Submitted by Brian J Kiedrowski MD on Fri, 06/06/2014 - 22:54
