Mrs. Bright is 68yr old woman who has suffered a serious stoke and has been recovering on a stroke unit for six weeks. She is non-attentive and non alert in a minimally conscious state and is currently fed via peg tube. The direction of her care is discussed with her husband and two children. Her prognosis is for her condition to remain relatively the same. The family is presented with the option to either continue to treat Mrs. Bright and find her a long-term care placement, or to provide Mrs. Bright with compassionate care only. Mrs. Bright’s husband cannot bring himself to “give up” on his wife and opts for placement. The children do not seem to agree with their fathers decision, but support it. Mrs. Bright is placed into long-term care.
