The Hastings Center updated its 1987 guidelines for the ethical care of terminally ill patients, adding decision-making for dying children, specific issues for patients with disabilities and the use of palliative sedation. The guidelines say a physician's offer or a family's request to "do everything" to keep a patient alive may not respect patient rights or ensure good care.
