- Family sues UCSF following death of cancer patient

In one of the first legal actions involving California’s “right to die” law, the family of a deceased cancer patient is suing UCSF Medical Center, alleging the system did not appropriately aid the woman in ending her life. The San Francisco Superior Court suit, filed by attorneys for the family of Judy Dale on July 7, claims that Dale’s caretakers at the hospital told her they would assist her in obtaining medication to help her die — but then suddenly backtracked. California’s End of Life Option Act went into effect in June 2016, a landmark and controversial piece of legislation that allows terminally ill adults to obtain medication to end their life if certain conditions are met. The hospital said it was one of the first in the state to develop a protocol for complying with the state law, adding that it “respects” the right of its physicians to opt out at their discretion. The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, also names the University of California Board of Regents, among other UCSF-connected entities.
