Children’s Hospital Agrees to Release Jahi McMath to Family

BREAKING:  The Children’s Hospital in Oakland, Calif., agrees to release Jahi McMath to family. She will be moved to an unspecified facility – @SFGate

Jahi McMath can be moved while remaining on a ventilator.

Under the agreement, Jahi’s mother, Nailah Winkfield, is “wholly and exclusively responsible for Jahi McMath the moment custody is transferred in the hospital’s pediatric intensive care unit and acknowledge(s) that she understands that the transfer and subsequent transport could pact the condition of the body, including causing cardiac arrest.”

Grillo refused the family’s request to require doctors from the hospital or an outside physician to insert a feeding tube and a tracheostomy tube on Jahi.

Hospital attorney Douglas Straus told the judge the hospital would not allow any doctor to perform procedures on a deceased human being. Source: San Francisco Chronicle
