Did 'revoked' living willkill communicative man?
WorldNetDaily ^ | November 4, 2005 | Diana Lynne

Posted on 11/04/2005 3:24:09 AM PST by 8mmMauser

Family members are investigating what they consider to be suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a nursing home patient at the center of a life and death tug-of-war reminiscent of the Terri Schiavo tragedy.

Seventy-nine-year-old Jimmy Chambers died in the early morning hours of Oct. 24 after the tracheotomy tubes that deliver oxygen from a ventilator to a hole in his neck became unhooked. Family members were told Chambers, a resident of the Anne Maria Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in North Augusta, S.C., apparently pulled the interlocking tubes apart.

"We're having it investigated. We're just incredulous," Chambers' daughter, Deanna Potter, told WND in reference to her siblings. "The last time I saw dad he was blowing me a kiss. I blew him one and he blew one back."

The retired dispatcher for Holland Motor Express died approximately 10 hours later. His death certificate indicates he died of "natural causes."

"Apparently, suffocation is a 'natural cause' when you're on a ventilator. We're contesting that," said Potter. "He suffocated. He didn't just pass away. He struggled and fought. And I'm just so angry."

Potter estimates it would have taken 10 to 14 minutes for her father, deprived of oxygen, to fall unconscious, and questions why the nursing home staff didn't come to his aid.

"The oxygen-saturation meter and his ventilator both would have had alarms going off. Four-thirty, five o'clock in the morning you'd think someone would hear this," she added. "That's the thing that really bothers me and makes me suspicious."

Scott is fighting for his life and his wife wants him dead and the courts so far may find in her favor.

I was speaking of Scott Taylor, who'se "wife" is trying to regain custody from his mom. Sorry for the confusion.

What is bothering me so much is the fact that when my mother moved up here from Florida, she was told by our attorney that the Living Will she had in Florida would not stand up her in South Carolina - that it was not considered a legal document.

This was in the mid ninties when she had checked out the validity of it.

I see. The only thing I can tell you is that today the living will, even tho it was written in 1990 took precedence over everything. I spoke with the mayor of North Augusta and he actually sneered his words to me that if Dad had changed his mind that he should've written it down. Dad changed his mind AFTER he was injured and couldn't write anything down. There was absolutely no respect for the documents we produced from witnesses. Finally, when they were all duly notarized, the courts accepted them and we think that is what finally began to change the tide.

It's bazaar and frightening. Here's the real kicker.. the living will took precedence EVEN THOUGH MY DAD COULD MAKE HIS OWN DECISIONS IF HE WASN'T BEING MEDICATED SO HEAVILY!!! The provisions of the living will had never been met, yet it was the document that ruled the day.

The euthanasiasts have planned it this way. Your dad's case is, I think, probably very common. Every hospital and health care facility regularly brings living wills and advance directives forms forward and puts pressure on the patient to sign them. Months before my dad died they asked him to sign them every couple of weeks. He repeatedly told them no. I am grateful to him for showing me that you can die just as well without them.

Yes, I wholeheartedly agree. I hope and pray that Scott is more fortunate than Terri. So far he has been, but his life could have the same tragic ending.

There was absolutely no respect for the documents we produced from witnesses.

There was also no respect for his written directive. Aside from the fact that it should have been disregarded when he revoked it, the terms of it were not being adhered to. Any removal of life support could only be done if he was unable to communicate his desires. The written will must have said that, right?

So the written will didn't rule the day either. The desire to kill him took precedence over his written directive and his spoken word.

In this strange twist of circumstances, young Haleigh Poutre, 11, clings to life in a hospital bed, her body sustained by breathing machines and feeding tubes. She was stricken on September 11. Her step-father wants her to stay alive lest he be charged with murder and the State wants her to die.

The state, which now has legal custody of the child, wants to terminate her life support, citing medical tests that show she will never recover.

Her stepfather has launched a legal battle to keep her alive.

But more than Haleigh's future hinges on the outcome. The stepfather, Jason Strickland, 32, is accused of taking part in a savage beating that left the girl in a vegetative state and dependent on life support.

And if she dies, he could be charged with murder.

Accused stepfather fights to keep girl alive

The coroner who could have examined Terri Schindler Schiavo.......some excerpts from the article:

Dr. Cyril Wecht, the Allegheny County coroner and frequent national talk-show guest who has been linked to many high-profile cases, is coming to Greensburg to promote his new book.

Wecht is the author, co-author or editor of nearly 40 books on forensic, scientific and legal topics.

This is his fifth book for the general public, and all of them are about famous or significant homicide investigations. Four are collections of cases, and one, "Who Killed JonBenet Ramsey?," is devoted entirely to the murder of the girl.

Wecht was a consultant for the Charles Manson murders, in the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, and in the O.J. Simpson trial.

"I think that (O.J.) did it, but with a second person," Wecht said.

He almost stepped in for several other famous cases. He was going to work with the prosecution in the investigation of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, who was with Sen. Ted Kennedy when she drowned in his car, but the judge denied a request to exhume her body.

The parents of Terri Schiavo wanted him present at her autopsy, but the medical examiner in Florida denied the request, Wecht said.

Famed coroner

It seems that from that account that so many things that should have been good turned bad for that little girl. She does have some good friends and neighbors stepping forward now; too bad it wasn't earlier.

"Relatives and family friends say they ask about Haleigh's condition daily. They say they are trying to raise money to help cover funeral costs and memorials, if and when they become necessary. John Gamelli, whose daughter once played with Haleigh, said he and some family members have set up a fund for her at the United Bank in Westfield.

Ron Drewnowski, a seminarian at St. Mary's Parish, where the Stricklands attended church, helped organize a vigil in Haleigh's honor. He said he had visited her at the hospital about six weeks ago, and she was lying in the bed, surrounded by stuffed animals. Her eyes were closed. ''I still pray for her," he said."

Your 59. This playing god keeps taking on new dimensions, doesn't it? Now an attempted murderer wants their victim to live to avoid being charged.

All these nut jobs should just move to Florida because judges here will do whatever the estranged, controlling individual wishes.

The step father should be charged with attempted murder. If somebody else kills her, they should be charged with murder. Of course, that's not how our legal system works. Nobody is responsible for their own behavior any more.

Just read it myself. Your response, BB, is the same as how I view it. I don't think it's right to take someone off of life-support just so that you can file murder charges on them. The crime in my point of view was attempted murder. It doesn't make it right to take her off her life-support just because she going to have a tough road ahead of her. That would be the futile care plan that euthanasiasts keep trying to pull over on us, but it only escalates this diminished quality of life that they think we should all give in to. Her biological mother said something like "I wouldn't want her to live like that" which IMO is saying that SHE doesn't want to take care of her own daughter. It's very tragic all the way around, but I don't think that removing life-suppport is the right thing either.

I agree. "Patient's wishes" and "personal autonomy" are
deceptive propaganda only. And disregarding same is
becoming ever more blatant. And don't rely on family
unanimity either, I'm afraid, although this family was
not unanimous.

I have abundant experience with Living Wills and other advanced directives. When I was a resident at Sloan-Kettering in the 1970s, I was sort of "present at the creation" of the format, and I have read hundreds and hundreds of these documents in various roles since.

What is very important to understand is that most of these documents are executed by well people, increasingly by well people who are also young (or, they are drafted by healthy young people, which is almost the same thing).

There is little that healthy young people can imagine that is worse than helplessness and disability. For this reason, they (almost) universally voice the notion, "I would rather be dead than live like that".

Of course, the situation of the mortally ill is quite different.

Everyone praises heaven, but no one wants to go there - at least not today.

Therefore, it is common (80+%) for persons who are able to cancel their "advanced directive" when their death is staring them in the face, and to elect aggressive treatment, regardless of the burdens or chance of success.

There are exceptions to this rule, mostly those involving chronic and invariably fatal diseases with a well-defined course.

Of course, the reason that insurance companies and the government have glommed on to living wills has nothing to do with autonomy - they want to kill sick people before they spend any money on them.

It is not unlikely, therefore, that interested third parties - mostly the government, but also greedy relatives and HMOs, will try to create a precedent where "living wills" can be enforced against the wishes of the patient - claiming that illness has rendered them incapable of "true" consent.

The precedents are already being set. Not only can they be enforced against the wishes of the patient, the provisions of the directive don't even need to be met. All that needs to happen is to incapacitate the patient with drugs and then take over.

I thought you may be interested in this news item just out a few hours ago and appearing in this morning's Philadelphia Inquirer. (excerpted)

After three decades of urging Americans to write living wills, many doctors, lawyers and ethicists concede that these documents have largely failed.

The problems are many: Most people don't complete living wills. When they do, too often the paper isn't available when decisions about life support must be made.

Living wills, intended to ensure that patients' wishes are honored when they can't speak for themselves, rarely address the actual situations that arise. And many people don't really know in advance what treatments they would or wouldn't want.

"The 30 years of literature on living wills has shown very disappointing results," said Charles Sabatino, assistant director of the American Bar Association's Commission on Law and Aging. "The shortcomings of living wills are real. Dying is just too complicated."

Living wills not keeping promise

Glad you pinged me to that article. I meant to read it a couple of days ago.

That little girl has had one messed up life. Who in her family can comfort her, and get her to respond? They're vermin. Well I'm going to say that they should keep the IV's and the feeding tube in, and disconnect the ventilator. It would be great if someone could be there encouraging her to fight, but it would have to be a teacher she knows, or a neighbor.

I don't know...

Good but disheartening article about living wills. How about a medical power of attorney?

I printed out two copies of the "will to live", but haven't gone over it yet. Would a medical power of attorney, naming someone who is not my legal next of kin, be good enough? I have personal reasons for excluding my oldest daughter.

Durable power of attorney (DPOA) for healthcare is much, much better.

It gives your trusted DPOA the right to make decisions instead of you.

Depending on your level of paranoia, it is probably not a good idea to use an heir.

The other missing ingredient, that everyone must have, is a doctor who is working for YOU, rather than the government or an insurance company.

Drug out the patient and when the family drops by to visit, the staff says that the patient is "failing and has stopped eating." Many times, the patients stops eating because they are so drugged that they are rendered incompetent by being drugged out. They don't stop eating because they wanted to.

It's easy to make someone look like they are failing if you pump enough drugs into their system which takes away the appetite and they become weak. This could happen to anybody. It's the death care system and we better beware.

that is why I'm so greatful for the Hospice care my grandfather had. It was a non full time visiting hospice where the family took most of the care and they came and went checking in, giving meds, making my grandfather comfortable. With my mom and my Aunt my grandfather was taken care of, but those Hospice workers really were kind and helpful. I can't imagine a Hopsice where they deny people food and water who are still conscious!!

Hospice Woodside was being commandeered by the Pinellas Cty Sheriff's Office, the Pinellas Park PD and by Judge Greer. Imagine having to show picture ID at a checkpoint to go see your loved one. IMAGINE! To watch the state of Florida torture your innocent loved one, showing your i.d. first. FOR SHAME!

The toll free number for congress to federalize a ban on starving & dehydrating when there's absolutely no directive, or maybe even if there's a directive but the person changed their mind. Congress & the President's numbers at www.conservative-spirit.org.

It's open season and we cannot even trust legislators or the judiciary, not on this issue!
