🩺When Should Health Care Be Denied?

There are two types of healthcare denial.

First, failure to provide medical treatment.
It is a situation when a health system cannot provide medical treatment to those who need it.

Second, the refusal of medical treatment.
It is a situation where a patient voluntarily refuses to receive medical treatment.

I think at this time the person feels like she/ should die. This could be as a result suffering too much, terminal illness etc.

Hi, Jackson.
Have you witnessed that situation? There are cases when the patient and his/her family know that further healthcare treatments will do no good. Last year, that is the case with my father-in-law when he was suffering pancreatic cancer.

It doesn’t not happen most of the time, in fact i have never experienced such situation.i think what matter the circumstances of the disease patient or patient’s family should try until the last time even if the patient refuse.

Some times sick people refuse to go to hospital, especially old ones .like my late grand father would not accept to go to hospital, it would be by force or decieving him that we are going to church for prayers.He would normally give the reason of saying that even Doctors die,we should not waste time.

These scenarios are very trying on all parties. In the one hand people should have access to health care as part of their countries support to their people however these systems are under a lot of stress even more so in times of COVID. If people refuse treatment then that is their right although loved ones dont always see it like that.

A patient and the family is in their right to refuse a treatment.  Another problem is when a treatment is denied in the public health care of economical reasons.  People with health Insurance can pay for a private treatment and then we get a two parted health system.
