Abstract: For elderly patients, especially those in long term facilities, the risk of death is obviously high. The challenge, therefore, as health care providers is knowing when to employ our healing powers to enable a “good death” when it is clear that further aggressive intervention is medically futile, will be overly burdensome, or will not reasonably offer benefit to the patient.
