The heading to this blog post is plagiarized from the Los Angeles Times who in an article by Lisa Zamosky on Sunday, September 21, 2014 discussed what people can do to make sure that their final days are the way they want them to be.
The article begins with identifying the problem – namely that there are many people who die in the intensive care units of hospitals – who would rather die at home. Medical doctors are trained and programmed to do everything possible to keep their patients alive. That is a good thing! On the other hand, there are undoubtedly some situations where providers have an incentive to provide more services even though everyone knows that the services are not going to heal the patient.
