The morality and conscience of our society places this responsibility in the hands of the physician. What justification is there to remove it from the control of the medical profession and place it in the hands of the courts?
Such notions as to the distribution of responsibility, heretofore generally entertained, should however neither impede this Court in deciding matters clearly justifiable nor preclude a re-examination by the Court as to underlying human values and rights… Determinations as to these must, in the ultimate, be responsible not only to the concepts of medicine but also to the common moral judgment of the community at large.
In the latter respect the Court has a nondelegable judicial responsibility. Put in another way, the law, equity and justice must not themselves quail and be helpless in the face of modem technological marvels presenting questions hitherto unthought of.
Where a Karen Quinlan, or a parent, or a doctor, or a hospital, or a State seeks the process and response of a court, it must answer with its most informed conception of justice in the previously unexplored circumstances presented to it.
That is its obligation and we are here fulfilling it, for the actors and those having an interest in the matter should not go without remedy. Courts in the exercise of their parents patriae responsibility to protect those under disability have sometimes implemented medical decisions and authorized their carrying out under the doctrine.
As part of the inherent power of equity, a Court of Equity has full and complete jurisdiction over the persons of those who labor under any legal disability.
The court's action in such a case is not limited by any narrow bounds, but it is empowered to stretch forth its arm in whatever direction.
But insofar as a court, having no inherent medical expertise, is called upon to overrule a professional decision made according to prevailing medical practice and standards, a different question is presented.
As mentioned below, a doctor is required "to exercise in the treatment of his patient the degree of care, knowledge and skill ordinarily possessed and exercised in similar situations by the average member of the profession practicing in his field.
If he is a specialist he "must employ not merely the skill of a general practitioner, but also that special degree of skill normally possessed by the average physician who devotes special study and attention to the particular organ or disease or injury involved, having regard to the present state of scientific knowledge.
The medical obligation is related to standards and practice prevailing in the profession. The physicians in charge of the case, as noted above, declined to withdraw the respirator.
That decision was consistent with the proofs below as to the then existing medical standards and practices. Under the law as it then stood, Judge Muir was correct in declining to authorize withdrawal of the.
However, in relation to the matter of the declaratory relief sought by plaintiff as representative of Karen's interests, we are required to re-evaluate the applicability of the medical standards projected in the court below.
The question is whether there is such internal consistency and rationality in the application of such standards as should warrant their constituting an ineluctable bar to the effectuation of substantive relief for plaintiff at the hands of the court.
We have concluded not. In regard to the foregoing it is pertinent that we consider the impact of the standards both of the civil and criminal laws as to medical liability and the new technological means of sustaining life irreversibly damaged.
The modem proliferation of substantial malpractice litigation and the less but even more unnerving possibility of criminal sanctions would seem, for it is beyond human nature to suppose otherwise, to have bearing on the practice and standards as they exist.
The brooding presence of such possible liability, it was testified here, had no part in the decision of the treating physicians. As did Judge Muir, we afford this testimony full credence.
But we cannot believe that the stated factor has not had a strong influence on the standards, as the literature on the subject plainly reveals.
Moreover our attention is drawn not so much to the recognition by Drs. Morse and Javed of the extant practice and standards but to the widening ambiguity of those standards themselves in their application to the medical problems we are discussing.
The agitation of the medical community in the face of modem life prolongation technology and its search for definitive policy are demonstrated in the large volume of relevant professional commentary.
The wide debate thus reflected contrasts with the relative paucity of legislative and judicial guides and standards in the same field.
The medical profession has sought to devise guidelines such as the "brain death" concept of the Harvard Ad Hoc Committee mentioned above.
But it is perfectly apparent from the testimony we have quoted of Dr. Korein, and indeed so clear as almost to be judicially noticeable, that humane decisions against resuscitative or maintenance therapy are frequently a recognized de facto response in the medical world to the irreversible, terminal, pain ridden patient, especially with familial consent.
And these cases, of course, are far short of "brain death. We glean from the record here that physicians distinguish between curing the ill and comforting and.
In this sense, as we were reminded by the testimony of Drs. Korein and Diamond, many of them have refused to inflict an undesired prolongation of the process of dying on a patient in irreversible condition when it is clear that such "therapy" offers neither human nor humane benefit.
We think these attitudes represent a balanced implementation of a profoundly realistic perspective on the meaning of life and death and that they respect the whole Judea-Christian tradition of regard for human life.
No less would they seem consistent with the moral matrix of medicine, "to heal," very much in the sense of the endless mission of the law, "to do justice.
For those possibly curable, such devices are of great value, and, as ordinary medical procedures, are essential. Consequently, as pointed out by Dr.
Diamond, they are necessary because of the ethic of medical practice. But in light of the situation in the present case while the record here is somewhat hazy in distinguishing between "ordinary" and "extraordinary" measures , one would have to think that the use of the same respirator or life support could be considered "ordinary" in the context of the possibly durable patient but "extraordinary" in the context of the forced sustaining by cardiorespiratory processes of an irreversibly doomed patient.
And this dilemma is sharpened in the face of the malpractice and criminal action threat which we have mentioned.
We would hesitate, in this imperfect world, to propose to physicians that type of immunity which from the early common law has surrounded judges and grand jurors In Bradley v.
It is a general principle of the highest importance to the proper administration of justice that a judicial officer, in exercising the authority vested in him, shall be free to act upon his own convictions, without apprehension of personal consequences to himself.
Lord Coke said of judges that "they are only to make an account to God and the King the State. We would hope that this opinion might be serviceable to some degree in ameliorating the professional problems under discussion.
A technique aimed at the underlying difficulty though in a somewhat broader context is described by Dr. Physicians, by virtue of their responsibility for medical judgments are, partly by choice and partly by default, charged with the responsibility of making ethical judgments which we are sometimes ill-equipped to make.
We are not always morally and legally authorized to make them. The physician is thereby assuming a civil and criminal liability that, as often as not, he does not even realize as a factor in his decision.
There is little or no dialogue in this whole process. The physician assumes that his judgment is called for and, in good faith, he acts.
Someone must and it has been the physician who has assumed the responsibility and the risk. I suggest that it would be more appropriate to provide a regular forum for more input and dialogue in individual situations and to allow the responsibility of these judgments to be shared.
Many hospitals have established an ethics committee composed of physicians, social workers, attorneys, and theologians Generally, the authority of these committees is primarily restricted to the hospital setting and their official status is more that of an advisory body than of an enforcing body.
The concept of an ethics committee which has this kind of organization and is readily accessible to those persons rendering medical care to patients, would be, I think, the most promising direction for further study at this point It diffuses the responsibility for making these judgments.
Many physicians, in many circumstances, would welcome this sharing of responsibility. I believe that such an entity could lend itself well to an assumption of a legal status which would allow courses of action not now undertaken because of the concern for liability.
Having concluded that there is a right of privacy that might permit termination of treatment in the circumstances of this case, we turn to consider the relationship of the exercise of that right to the criminal law.
We are aware that such termination of treatment would accelerate Karen's death. The County Prosecutor and the Attorney General maintain that there would be criminal liability for such.
Under the statutes of this State, the unlawful killing of another human being is criminal homicide We conclude that there would be no criminal homicide in the circumstances of this case.
We believe, first, that the ensuing death would not be homicide but rather expiration from existing natural causes. Secondly, even if it were to be regarded as homicide, it would not be unlawful.
These conclusions rest upon definitional and constitutional bases. The termination of treatment pursuant to the right of privacy is, within the limitations of this case ipso facto lawful.
Thus, a death resulting from such an act would not come within the scope of the homicide statutes proscribing only the unlawful killing of another.
There is a real and in this case determinative distinction between the unlawful taking of the life of another and the ending of artificial life-support systems as a matter of self-determination.
Furthermore, the exercise of a constitutional right such as we have here found is protected from criminal prosecution. We do not question the state's undoubted power to punish the taking of human life, but that power does not encompass individuals terminating medical treatment pursuant to their right of privacy.
The constitutional protection extends to third parties whose action is necessary to effectuate the exercise of that right where the individuals themselves would not be subject to prosecution or the third parties are charged as accessories to an act which could not be a crime.
And under the circumstances of this case, these same principles would apply to and negate a valid prosecution for attempted suicide were there still such a crime in this State.
The trial judge bifurcated the guardianship, as we have noted, refusing to appoint Joseph Quinlan to be guardian to the person and limiting his guardianship to that of the property of his daughter.
Such occasional division of guardianship, as between responsibility for the person and the property of an incompetent person, has roots deep in the common law and was well within the jurisdictional capacity of the trial judge.
The statute creates an initial presumption of entitlement to guardianship in the next of kin, for it provides:. In any case where a guardian is to be appointed, letters of guardianship shall be granted The trial court was apparently convinced of the high character of Joseph Quinlan and his general suitability as guardian under other circumstances, describing him as "very sincere, moral, ethical and religious.
Quinlan feels a natural grief, and understandably sorrows because of the tragedy which has befallen his daughter, his strength of purpose and character far outweighs these sentiments and qualifies him eminently for guardianship of the person as well as the property of his daughter.
Hence we discern no valid reason to overrule the statutory intendment of preference to the next of kin. We thus arrive at the formulation of the declaratory relief which we have concluded is appropriate to this case.
Some time has passed since Karen's physical and mental condition was described to the Court. At that time her continuing deterioration was plainly projected.
Since the record has not been expanded we assume that she is now even more fragile and nearer to death than she was then.
Since her present treating physicians may give reconsideration to her present posture in the light of this opinion, and since we are transferring to the plaintiff as guardian the choice of the attending physician and therefore other physicians may be in charge of the case who may take a different view from that of the present attending physicians, we herewith declare the following affirmative relief on behalf of the plaintiff.
Upon the concurrence of the guardian and family of Karen, should the responsible attending physicians conclude that there is no reasonable possibility of Karen's ever emerging from her present comatose condition to a cognitive, sapient state and that the life-support apparatus now being administered to Karen should be discontinued, they shall consult with the hospital "Ethics Committee" or the body of the institution in which Karen is then hospitalized.
