My brother passed away on April 17th. He was on the ventilator and I don’t feel as though the docs and nurses did enough for him. They never gave him a fighting chance to come off of it. After 19 days, I chose to remove life support which is called a “pull and pray”. I thought after removing the vent, they would switch over to a bipap, but the nurses refused to call the doctor. So, he died that day. I am completely broken and no one understands how guilty I feel. I’m a nurse so I understand how things work in a hospital. I am incredibly sad.
