Re: Doctors milk dying cancer patients for every last dollar

 Tony, that's true to a certain extent.  What isn't included in that article is the fact that all a patient has to do is to refuse treatment.  It's that simple.

Actually it is not that simple.

I had a friend who was admitted for kidney failure caused by a single dose of ibuprofen. He was uninsured so he ended up in County. During the admitting  x-ray they found a spot on his lungs which he informed them was scar tissue from Valley Fever and this was documented in his medical records. They insisted on doing a biopsy anyway. they came back several days later and told him he was correct and that it was scar tissue. Then they came back a week later and said they made a mistake and that it was really cancer and they had to operate right away. He initially refused since he knew they were lying. They told him that if he refused the surgery that he would get stuck with the entire hospital bill since he was refusing doctors orders. So they coerced him in to the surgery.

And how many times have we seen families charged or had their children taken away because they refused chemotherapy for their child's cancer even though the chemo is a known carcinogen and they have never really been shown to work? All they have to do is to declare the person unfit to make rational decisions, which they can actually do with anyone if they really want to push it.
