Good morning, this is Hopkins Hospital. Is this Mrs. Judie's health care proxy, Mr. Juanito G.?
Yes speaking, this is his son. How can I help?
Sir,I'm Dr. Romez and I am the attending physician of your mother. I would like to inform you about your mother's condition.
Is my mother okay?
As of the moment, I'm afraid... your mother is not responding well with any interventions that we have currently giving her.
Why? What happened?
Her condition is very critical right now, that is why I'm discussing it with you because we need to make a decision in case a cardiac arrest will occur
I wanted to let her live. but I remember her saying that she would not like heroic measure in case she will experience a cardiac arrest. It is a very hard decision for m, but I would like to follow my mother's wish.
I understand what you feel. I know that this is very hard for you, but thank you for making a decision immediately. So are you confronting that in an event of cardiac arrest, we will not resuscitate your mother?
Yes, do not resuscitate her. But please take care of her until then...
Do not worry, we will do the best we can. Thank you for your cooperation. I will inform you if there are any progress regarding her condition.
