VUToday: Friday - November 28, 2014


WTVF, Channel 5, reported on the release of a recording of the radio consultation between paramedics and Vanderbilt doctors that led to the decision to terminate resuscitation efforts on a man with a catastrophic gunshot wound to the head. The report included a statement from John Howser, assistant vice chancellor of medical center news and communications, explaining that the doctors had to use their best judgment based on the physiological evidence available to them and that the hospital has since worked with the fire department to clarify protocols for making a field determination of death.
