neuronix Posted March 31, 2010 Report Share Posted March 31, 2010 So, I've read some conflicting things about whether the parents of an infant can refuse blood transfusion for religious reasons... One source says that they CAN refuse treatment, since the patient does not have the capacity and cognition to understand the situation - sort of a parent knows best - which means that the patient will die. Another source says that the physician is obliged to try and save the life even though the parents are not allowing the transfusion... Does anyone have any insight?
