    Wow, I guess this is something that I didn't even consider when I was thinking of ethical issues that I could face. I really think that first of all, you want to follow the patients wishes, but I can see where there could be an exception. I was aware that Hospice has some unwritten rules about meds and such, but this is really something to think about.

    I remember having surgery several years ago, I put down there that I wanted to be kept alive by whatever means, but I was in my thirtees and had a young child. I obviously wouldn't want to be kept alive if I couldn't be saved, but was afraid of putting that down. I guess it's silly, but a lot of people think the same way, I am sure of it.

    Thanks for the post. It gives me a lot to think about.
