Legality

Unless the laws have changed in the last ten years, no one is supposed to be forced into treatment. If they realize without treatment, they will die, it is still their right. I sent my, 94 YO, great grandpa to the hospital,with arrythmias and congestive heart failure, he screamed all of the way. (first time in the hospital, for him!) Later, he refused his meds in the ECF. I told him he would die if he refused to take his meds. He said, to me, "Let an old man do, what an old man wants to do!" He died shortly after that, in the ECF. What happened was close to murder. It was negligent homicide!
