Imagine you are a pediatric nurse. You have been providing care for an infant with failure to thrive and a congenital heart defect. The infant will require multiple types of home medical monitoring equipment and a very expensive surgery to save his life. As the child grows, he will need continued follow-up care and smaller palliative surgeries to ensure his health. The family comes from a strict Amish community in which the elders of the community make all final medical decisions. The parents want the medical team to save their baby; however, they declined treatment because the Amish elders have decided that the community cannot endure the continued cost associated with prolonged medical care. It is your job to discharge the family home, knowing the child will die at home.
