I just want to point out that this lawsuit seems pretty suspect just given its reference to an "end-of-life" unit in the hospital. I was a medical resident at Stanford from June 2003 to June 2006. I know every floor, every hallway, and every nurse's station. And I can assure you that Stanford Hospital, unfortunately, had no such unit. The fact that the family is claiming there was one implies thay have either grossly misunderstood the events leading to the patient's death, or less likely, are just making stuff up in the confusion of their grief.
