Gabbe, MD Presentation A year-old Hispanic-American woman who is in her second pregnancy and has had one live birth and no abortions is seen for prenatal care at 24 weeks gestation. Uterine size is appropriate for gestational age. The patient reports that the child is doing well.
Both young people sustained severe injuries. Jack died enroute to the hospital. Janet survives, having escaped injury except to her head; but that was unfortunately massive.
Her physicians now say, a month after the accident, that the prognosis is grim. The best one could hope for—or perhaps the worst—is continuation for some time in a persistent vegetative state. Unlike most young adults, Janet had thought about mortality in advance of this accident.
She is, or was, a nurse. She had gone to continuing education workshops about end of life care and advance care planning. Janet then had completed her own advance directives some months ago, naming Jack as her primary agent and durable power of attorney for healthcare decisions.
She named her parents as secondary agents. Janet also had completed, with notarized signature, a healthcare treatment directive. After consulting her physicians, other family members, and even their priest, a decision is made to stop everything except palliative care.
Plans are made to transfer Janet to a hospice unit in another part of the hospital. It would take place the following day. Probably about nine weeks, it appears. The parents had spent a sleepless night anticipating today. Did the doctor really say that?
