Patient on life support after an aortic burst and stroke to the brain, with no brain activity

שאלה:

I got Dr Haperns name from Dr. Danny Hain. My husband Dr. Elie Lepkifker is currently on a respirator due to an aortic burst and subsequent stroke to the brain. There is no current brain activity. He is at Tel Hashomer Hospital in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. Is there anyone who I can speak to as soon as possible to help me determine how to move forward with regard to life support for my husband.

I can be reached at 052-880-8726 (cell). You may also get in touch with me through my sister Lillian who is at cell phone number 052-604-1193
Thank you for your help in this matter.

Dear Mrs Legkifker

Rabbi Dr Halperin requests that you send him the medical report on the case. Also, if a committee on end-of-life decion has convened, please send their report as well.
his email is mswltd@gmail.com (also cc irp@medethics.org.il)

Shabbat Shalom
Dr Israel Belfer
