A Dutch euthanasia doctor has been rebuked by a Regional Review Committee after she gave a lethal injection to a demented patient who appeared to be struggling to stop the procedure.
The incident emerged when the Regional Review Committee released euthanasia case reports on January 1. This was Verdict 2016-85.
Here is what happened. An 80-year-old woman with dementia entered a nursing home because her husband could no longer care for her. When the woman was still lucid she expressed two wishes: (a) not to go into a "home for demented elderly" and (b) to be euthanised "when I myself find it the right time". Only the second wish was honoured.
She was unhappy in the nursing home and wandered the corridors at night. After seven weeks of this, the nursing home doctor decided that she must be suffering unbearably. Based on her previous statements, the doctor decided that euthanasia was appropriate.
With members of her family in attendance, the doctor approached to give her a lethal injection. The woman was agitated, so the doctor slipped a sedative into her coffee. This did not work, so she gave her an injection. With all these drugs, the woman dosed off.
But when the needle for the lethal injection appeared, she started to struggle. The doctor had to ask the family members to hold her down so that she could continue with the injection. The woman died soon afterwards. . .

How it’s done. First it’s voluntary. Then it’s “voluntary “. Then it’s “no money for treatment “. Then it’s “you DO want a peaceful exit, don’t you?”
Then it’s “lie still, dammit!”
Got to get rid of the old Whiteys to make room for their replacements.
Death begets death. The country approves Euthanasia now even for depression.
The Dutch government immediately stepped in when Trump dropped funding for International Planned Parenthood abortion funding.
They also lead the world in “renewable energy” and Climate Change friendly policies. You know, because clean air and windmills are of more value than human life which is expendable apparently.
Prayers that a godly “Silent Majority” is growing in the home of the some of the greatest Christian thinkers, reformers, and artists who ever lived. Trump may have sparked the awakening!
The Netherlands is a $hit country! They were “first” to kill people who were found to be defective.
I guess they didn’t have time to show her the Nature Video.
The Unborn fight for Life too.
Recall in WWII there were some Dachau euthanasia doctors; what did we do with them again?
My wife suffers from severe dementia much worse than this lady and lives in a nursing home. If the state decided she was to be put down I'm guessing they'll have to do me too because I'll be raising holy hell
Slippery slopes are, well, slippery...
Euthanize the quack.
Send the family (accessories to murder) to the slammer for life.
I’m so sorry - my dad’s wife suffers from dementia and it’s so hard.
Doctor murdered the patient and the punishment is being “rebuked”. Insane.
God bless you. Only someone who has dealt with this could possibly imagine how difficult it is. Your wife is lucky to have someone as loving and caring as you are. May God be with both of you and give you strength and comfort.
I can honestly tell you that I’m not a bitter man, but socialists are not human
