What kind of doctor would refuse to work with hospice and extremely distraught parents with Dr. Thusu Kajori’s request for comfort care for a special needs baby?
Not only did Dr. Kajori Thusu deny oxygen and nutrition to my terminally ill infant grandson, she also withheld approval of pain medication to aid him in his final hours of life.
She would have heartlessly let him die in excruciating pain.
Fortunately for us, our son and his wife were able to dismiss (or should I say fire) Dr. Thusu and retain the services of a truly compassionate doctor who approved all comfort measures requested.
My beloved grandson was able to pass away in relative peace. I would advise anyone to think long and hard before retaining the services of Dr. Thusu.
Our horrific nightmare is over, however my son still gets really heart sick when he thinks about how Dr. Thusu would have treated his son as less than human.
It makes us wonder how many other babies has she treated with such substandard care and do the parents of these babies realize they had other options?
By the way, Dr. Thusu is a neonatalist from Valley Children’s Hospital, which is generally a wonderful place for children.
I just have to question why they would have someone like Dr. Thusu on their staff.
It should be a huge red flag to Valley Children’s that they have people in their employment who refuse to work with hospice.
Shame on Dr. Thusu! Every parent hopes their doctor will have the best interest of their child in mind. Unfortunately, not all doctors are created equal.
