    Is it a fear of litigation that prevents humane interventions on dying patients? As you say animals and pets are treated much more humanely in their final journey than humans.

    I know people can request do not resuscitate orders but I also know of cases where people were left to Die a miserable death because the hospital could/would not take any further interventions. In saying that Palliative care has improved enormously over the last 20 years. But during the Covid pandemic they were restricted in treating a lot of dying patients. Don’t die during a pandemic.

    It's disgusting that a golf pissup was deemed legal at the same time that bereaved relatives couldn't attend the funeral of their loved one. Says it all about our priorities as a country and the continuing sense of entitlement among a certain class of people.

    Life ain't always empty.
