Nearly a month after 13-year-old Jahi McMath was taken to a care facility, a video has been posted online that claims to show the girl who was declared brain dead responding to touch.
Jahi McMath’s family has removed the brain-dead teenager from Childrens Hospital Oakland, but her case is far from over as the hospital faces a state investigation and a potential lawsuit from the family.
The family of a 13-year-old Oakland girl who was declared brain dead after suffering complications from sleep apnea surgery has achieved its goal of moving the girl to a new facility for long-term care, but medical experts say it may be just a matter of time before her body functions shut down completely.
Jahi McMath’s family lawyer has said she has been relocated to an undisclosed Catholic organization where she is receiving treatment, but now he plans on suing the spokesman for Children’s Hospital Oakland.
According to a published report, similar violations occurred at a half dozen other American medical schools.
