Clinical Law for Nurses:-

Care of the Dying- End of Life Care

In Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust v David James (by his litigation friend the Official Solicitor); May James; Julie James [2013] EWCA Civ 65 – the Court of Appeal determined that it was in a patient’s best interests for treatment to be withheld where such treatment would be extremely burdensome for the patient (Mr James) to endure, the treatment would also be¬†futile, and he would never recover to leave from hospital, owing to organ failure and his general clinical condition.
