1. As a member of the healthcare ethics committee, explore to following options: a. Transfer the patient to an inpatient hospice, where he can die a natural death and any pain will be treated with medications. b. Keep the patient at your facility and go to court for a an order to insert a feeding tube under the contention that, without the feeding tube, he will die. 2. Discuss how keeping the patient at your healthcare institution or having this physician treat the patient would violate the religious stance of both the organization and the physician. 3. How is this discussion changed if the patient has both a living will and a healthcare proxy that specifically state he does not want a feeding tube and he wishes his death to be peaceful, even if that means using medication to keep him comfortable at the expense of shortening his life?
