Fired for Refusing to Remove a Feeding Tube

Topics: Testimonials

This message came from a reader:

I am an RN. Several years ago, I was wrongfully fired for refusing to remove a feeding tube from 2 patients who had been diagnosed as PVS like Terri. Neither patient was really PVS and no appropriate testing was done to make that determination. I witnessed how one of the patient's died. It was horrible! We won a lawsuit and then the state supreme court overturned the jury verdict that had been in our favor. I don't care what the motivations of the husband or parents are in this case. Starving and dehydrating people to death is wrong! It was determined to be cruel and unusual punishment as a mode of execution in capital cases. It is murder! If you have to starve & dehydrate a person to get them to die, then you'd better ask yourself the following question: Exactly how terminal is this person?! The answer is: They aren't terminal!
