The questions the Indian doctor poses to the American doctor sums it all up: ““What’s wrong with you Americans? Why do you not know when to let your people die?”
North America, as this is where I live, is afraid of death, afraid to talk about it, afraid to plan for it and this has to change. At what point do medical professionals say it is enough when it comes to a patient? When do life saving measures stop?
Death and dying need to be discussed, training of professionals is needed, good supervision is needed, and debriefing sessions are needed.
