The US Supreme Court has ruled in the Terri Shiavo case.

If Terri Shiavo didn't have a DPOAHC or a living will, isn't this the decision of the next of kin, in this case her husband?

I can understand her mother's angst, but isn't the law clear?

Another reason to encourage our patients, of whatever age, to formalize their desires in a durable power of attorney for health care and a living will. Keeps down the bickering in the family that is left.
