Weiss Memorial Hospital Complaint - Violation of Patient Rights
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- A patient for 37 days, **name removed** with a living will clearly stating, "no CPR, no intubation or ventilator" was forcibly intubated several times and on 2/13/04 wrote (a paralyzed vocal cord) "This procedure can wait for a few minutes or hours until my spouse and I see the docs. IT'S NOT OK - NONE OF IT!"... She died shortly after and given unsuccessful CPR.
Neither doctor, hospital, or staff responded to my queries about their "practices". Over two years following.
Obviously, it is all about money.
