Children’s Hospital might fight removing Jahi

“Children’s Hospital Oakland continues to offer its sympathy and support to the family over the recent death of Jahi McMath. We are aware that the family’s attorney has stated the family hopes to transfer Jahi’s body to another facility. However, he has refused to identify the facility to which they hope to transfer Jahi’s body. The family’s attorney has stated that multiple surgical procedures need to be performed on Jahi’s body before this possible transfer can be completed. Judge Grillo was very clear on Tuesday December 24. He ruled Jahi McMath to be deceased and instructed the hospital to maintain the status quo. Judge Grillo did not authorize or order any surgical procedures or transfer to another facility. Children’s Hospital Oakland does not believe that performing surgical procedures on the body of a deceased person is an appropriate medical practice. Children’s Hospital Oakland continues to extend its wishes for peace and closure to Jahi McMath’s family.”
