Ind. Courts - Still more on "End-of-life case splits family"

Supplementing this ILB entry from Jan. 17th, the Indianapolis Star on Jan. 18th published this op/ed from attorney/physician David Orentlicher that begins:

As readers of The Star follow the sad story of Paul G. Smith's end-of-life medical care, many must wonder what they can do to ensure that things go smoothly for them and their family members.

Despite Smith's careful planning with a living will and durable power of attorney, disagreement among his children has resulted in legal proceedings to sort out his wishes and determine how health-care decisions will be made in what appear to be his final days.
