Storyboard Text

  • I would just want to inform you that your sister came and asked something about your mother’s treatment and she has discussed it with one of our nurses.
  • Thank you for telling me this. I’d like to know the planned course treatment that you willgive to my mother.
  • She mentioned that she wants the best possible care done to your mother. Since you are the legally appointed decision maker and healthcare proxy for the patient, I wanted to tell you this to know what your decision is.
  • How about your sister?
  • Okay, Doc. My mother would not want any aggressive measures. I agree to what comfort care you will provide for my mother.
  • The ICU team’s plan is to continue the current supportive treatment regimen.
  • I will talk to her about this and I’ll try to make her understand the reason why I’m agreeing with my mother’s directives.
  • Sister...

  • I hate you, why would you agree to mother’s wish to not have heroic measure?
  • Don’tyou love her?
  • It’s not that I don’t love her, our mother has been suffering silently for a long timenow and even though she’s not telling me about this, I can feel how tired she is and howmuch pain she is feeling that is why I’m agreed to her directives.
  • I don’t want to prolong her pain anymore. That’s what you also feel, right?
  • Nods her head
