It's 4:45 P.M. on the day before the 3-day Labor Day weekend. A new associate at your firm bursts into your office and begs for your help. A spokesperson for one of the hospitals that your firm represents called to ask for advice regarding treatment of a 33-year-old patient, recently admitted for a heart attack but otherwise healthy, who has refused implantation of a pacemaker. Share your thoughts on what the associate must consider before responding to the hospital's request. (For instance, let's say the family members don't agree with the patient's values about implantation. What might they do if the hospital lets the patient die over the Labor Day weekend? Explain.) Interact with the suggestions of one other classmate.
