” Of the 710 families approached in intensive care units last year to provide consent for donation, 300 refused.” While we should rejoice in the 410 who saved many lives (one deceased donor can save up 8 lives and give others a better quality of life), it is heartbreaking to hear the 300 refused. surely it is a blend of misconception & fear (hospitals do NOT harvest and will continue to keep the patient alive at all cost!!) More education is needed on this subject.
