Good Evening Ely, Hope you are well.Last week I took my mother to Care House?Beyt Avot. Today they phoned me saying she is very sick in critical situation PNEUMONIA.We took her to hospital EMERGENCY CARE,she received treatment but is still in danger. I felt myself bad facing such situation but came home and rest ready for tomorrow. My question to you, as APOTROPOUS I can decide if they continue to give her oxygen or stop the sufferings? Whatever I decide someone at court can blaim me?
Country relating to Question: United States
Hello,I am sorry to hear about your mother's condition. As an apotropus, you have the right to make this decision - yes.However, if your mother has a pre-existing Will of Health Care Directive that specifically mandates what to do, you have to follow it.You cannot be blamed for making a rational decision as next of kin and Apotopus as long as your decision was rational and made within the Will, Health Care Directive, or Order that addresses this situation (if any exist).
I couldnt understand last paragraph, if I tell doctor to stop her sufferings by stop giving oxygen HANSHAMA? That will be end of her life. Can my sister or court can blaim me?
Until when am I apotropous.If her life ends can I still take money from her account for fulnerals expenses , Helkat Kvura , Matseva etc....Or should I pay all these from my own money ?
Thank you in advance ,I write you these while i cry
Hello,Again, I am very sorry for your mother.Assuming that she has:1. no Will that states directions on what to do in this situation; or2. no Advanced Directive stipulating what decisions someone is to make for her; or3. an Order by the Court that states what to do or that you have to seek its permission before making a decision, then......you may make a decision as her closest family member and her apotopus if the doctors ask you what you wish to do.=, and no one (sister of court) should blame you either way as long as you make a reasonable decision.If her life ends can I still take money from her account for fulnerals expenses , Helkat Kvura , Matseva etc....Or should I pay all these from my own money ?Yes, you normally can.

Hello,No - we do not know at this point what happened. Was there some negligence on the part of the Beit Avot? We do not know but we cannot rule it out. If I were you, I would get all the medical documents at the hospital and take them to an attorney. The attorney may then be able to determine with the help of a friendly specialist if there was any negligence.And another private question, I allways of course click to accept your answers and several times I gave for you bonus of 50 Dollars , are you receiving all these?I have indeed and you have been very kind and generous beyond words. You have gone above and beyond and please know that you are under no mandate to provide bonuses.
