To Live, or Let Die

Record #:
Eleven years after enactment of North Carolina’s Natural Death Act, which recognizes the need for limited treatment in certain situations, hospitals are still grappling with how to care for the dying and with the ethical question of when to cease care. Strict hospital policies further complicate the dilemma. Consequently, dying patients often are over-treated, their wishes for limited care overlooked.
