-First of all she writes a story about young, hansom, strong Cop wearing 30-pounds of protective equipment looking if he could single-handedly protect the whole city. Looking at that kind of person “FULL OF LIFE” you will never think that this person for only six months can come to a terrible Health-situation, weighting only 60-pounds, loosing his youth, his hair, his sense of taste, sense of smell and his ability to do the slightest thing for himself. -The guy was resuscitated 52 times and obviously he was not going to recover from that disease. That was obvious to all hospital staff, to his wife and most importantly to himself. He knew that there’s no hope for him to return to this life again.
So he was begging the doctors, the nurses to let him go, not to push that “BLUE CODE” button any more, not to resuscitate him any more. -Bu even if he begged them, I think that they did what was right to do, cause who would have taken the responsibility of choosing for death on somebody else’s life, EVEN if his family wanted that, EVEN if he-himself wanted to do so. But that went too far that everybody knew that even if they keep resuscitating him over and over again they’d just make his wife’s, everybody’s around him and especially HIS LIFE, MISERABLE. -What the nurse did by not pushing the “BLUE CODE” button to try to resuscitate him for the 53-rd time, according to my opinion was; RIGHT- morally, for his wife, his children, and everybody around him cause it was enough suffering for them, and especially looking at him in that condition. RIGHT-for the Cop, cause his suffer it will end once and for all. WRONG-according to Medical-Ethics, because no matter what the sick person thinks, no matter what his wife thinks, doctors have their rules”, To try to extend life as long as they have the means and knowledge to do it”.
WRONG-because even if the nurse had good meanings by doing it, unfortunately she played God and decided on her own will to let somebody die. WRONG-because you ” ll never know if the “MIRACLE” can happen and he can be healed (even if in this particular case the miracle was way too far). -Even if what the nurse did was against the law and somebody can even call her KILLER, thinking about his and his wife’s begging, I WOULD DEFINITELY DO THE SAME THING!
