Guidelines issued on refusing medical care •THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16,1987- 1 1 WASHINGTON (AP)—A panel of medical ethics specialists today released guidelines for halting life-sustaining treatment and allowing patients to die, but it said care must be taken to guard against "mercy killing." The report by The Hastings Center, a New York research institute specializing in medical ethics, said patients or their designated decision-makers should be. able to refuse life- sustaining treatment when there is no reasonable prospect for recovery. Susan wolf, an attorney who directed the privately funded, two-year study by a 20-member panel, said jhe report picks up where a 1983 study by a presidential biomedical ethics dom- mission left off. The 150-page report offers detailed guidelines to assist patients, health care workers, hospitals and nursing homes make decisions leading up to termination of treatment, Wolf said in an interview. The panel, drawn from the fields of medicine, law, ethics, nursing and health care administration, defined life-sustaining treatment as any medical practice intended to forestall death, such as use of blood dialysis, breathing machines, transfusions and feeding tube's. The group concluded that there is no significant ethical distinction between withholding treatment to begin with and withdrawing it at a later date. It is often preferable to try a life- sustaining treatment to see if it has desired effects than not to use it at all, but this is not a commitment to continue, it said. The guidelines also say designated surrogates for incapacitated patients should follow the patient's directives on ending care. If there are no directives, such as "living wills," the rep- resentative should apply the patient's values and preferences in trying to decide as the patient would. A refusal of treatment even when the result will be death is different from mercy killing or assisting in suicide, practices the committee said are rightfully forbidden. Suicide and mercy killing involve doing something to cause an earlier death, while refusing treatment is making a choice not to delay death with unhelpful treatments that don't promise a better outcome, the report said. Leslie S. Rothenberg, an attorney who is a fellow at the Hastings Center and a clinical ethicist in Los Angeles, said in a dissent attached to the report that he was concerned that unscrupulous people preoccupied with containing health care costs might use the report to deny treatment to certain people. Rothenberg said in a telephone interview that he endorsed" most of the report's recommendations, including offering the option of treatment termination to terminally ill and incurable patients. But he said he disagreed with including patients with "disability that is severe and irreversible" and those who "suffered an irreversible loss of consciousness." "There are a lot of people who have severe disabilities who are perfectly happy to be living," he said. Rothenberg said the elderly, demented and disabled are in danger of being undervalued and considered unworthy of care in a health care monetary crisis. The Hastings Center is a nonpartisan study organization supported by grants from foundations, membership dues, and gifts from individuals and corporations, Wolf said.

The council voted 11-0 on Tuesday in favor of the new rules that unlike a recent Santa Clara County ordinance, the regulations do not ban pit bulls. "In my mind, pit bulls are guilty until proven innocent," said Councilwoman Susan Hammer. The new regulations allow the animal control department to hold a hearing to determine the viciousness of a dog that someone has complained has bitten or threatened them.
