Summary
Focusing on the bioethical decisions involved in terminal care, this program is an extract of Who Lives, Who Dies? (page 127). It asks whether a patient who is dying has a right to say, "I'd rather die now." Dr. David Finley, Director of Critical Care at New York s Roosevelt Hospital, believes the patient's wishes should be respected. He acknowledges, however, that it is difficult to prevent doctors, who are dedicated to saving lives, from taking heroic measures to extend them.A Matter of Life or Death not only addresses the bioethical issues as they relate to the individual patient, but to society as a whole. It questions whether the money spent to prolong the dying process should be redirected to patients who are currently denied basic care
