Carmen Lopez Dominguez, the 91-year old blind, deaf, and ulcerated with dementia will continue the same treatment as before. The ethics committee of the residence of Leganés where entered for eight years has determined that the request of his niece and guardian, Dolores Marton, for he removed the nasogastric tube and give palliative care does not have the "sufficient technical arguments ". In reaching this conclusion, based on three claims. One, they claimed, she "did not suffer", the second to have the probe has not hurt his state and the third, which he wrote a paper on advance directives (living will). The woman's niece , who yesterday received with "despair" the news does not give credit. "How can they say that does not suffer? Yesterday, after meeting with the director of the residency, I went to see her, and when I touched her leg, which is a noodle, began to gesture of pain," he says.Marton suspect that a wrist injury he was told that it was struggling to free itself has hands. Yesterday, when he went to see her aunt, "had a swollen hand because he had the belt too tight," he says. "I had to call for it to be loosened, and you were giving a massage.The only option that gives the committee report of the residence is to have a reassessment of the status of the elderly in a hospital. But the result "will not be known for another 10 days," complains Marton, who believes that, in the end, only you are taking "long". "I have said nothing new. And this just prolongs the suffering of my aunt," he complains.Still, this decision coincides with one of the options that the association Marton and shuffled right to die with dignity to the counselor, since they understand that the report has been used "is part of [it developed the medical residents and those of the holding company SARquavitae]. " Furthermore, to demonstrate that the probe if it bothers you, you will be asked to remove the containment (the bonds) to the woman, and an independent committee, probably the hospital Getafe-evaluate their status.
