When caring for loved ones in a Texas hospital, many families are surprised to learn that Texas law allows hospitals and physicians to remove life-support from a patient over the objections of their family. If there is a disagreement brewing between your family and your loved one’s physician over the continuation of life-sustaining treatment (dialysis, ventilator support, food and water, blood pressure medications, etc.), you need skilled advocacy immediately.
