Families place women in hospice to die, but patients have different ideas: Next FOT

Alexandra Snyder
Executive director, Life Legal
On this week’s FOT we’re going to cover a couple of cases involving two women in their 30’s who were placed in hospice care after suffering a temporary lack of oxygen to the brain. One was starved for 10 days and the other for 34 days, yet only a few weeks later both women were talking and walking however in each case there are continuing issues dealing with their legal representatives who are either not providing for proper care or not acting in the best interest of the client but those who wanted to allow her to die.

In one case the woman who had been placed in hospice care started moving her arms and legs and attempted to get out of bed. Instead of providing medical care, the hospice facility gave her morphine. A close friend of the woman called Life Legal Defense Foundation who began legal proceedings to assist her.

Joining Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll to discuss these cases will be Alexandra Snyder, executive director of Life Legal. FOT airs every Tuesday at 9 a.m. on Iowa Catholic Radio, 1150 AM, 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming on and on our live app that you can download from the app store. On our website you can also access podcasts of previous programs. The program will re-air at 9 p.m.
