Coping with Poor Prognosis in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Waller, David A.; And Others
American Journal of Diseases of Children, v133 n11 p1121-25 Nov 1979
The intensive care pediatrician who prophesies to parents that their child's illness is irreversible may encounter denial and hostility. Four cases are reported in which parents rejected their child's hopeless prognosis, counterprophesied miraculous cures, resolved to obtain exorcism, criticized the care, or accused nurses of neglect.
