    Colleen Burns was really depressed, and attempted suicide…
    “Burns was actually in a deep coma upon being admitted to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse. Doctors diagnosed her as having had a heart attack and declared her brain dead. Sixteen hours before her organs were to be harvested a nurse conducted a reflex test, to which Burns responded.”
    So you would think this is a miracle, and another chance to change things for the better…
    “Burns and her family never sued the hospital, and her mother said she was never upset about the incident, adding, “She was so depressed that it really didn’t make any difference to her.” She ended up committing suicide in January of 2011.”
    I can’t believe her parents!! They did nothing for her, and then the hospital just let her go. Did the hospital and family should have taken more responsibility.


    Unfortunately, this stuff happens. I could be glib and say that the girl put herself in that position. On the other hand having suffered from severe depression myself at times I know that your never really in your right mind when you make those decisions. It truly is sad that this girl felt the need to go to those lengths. This story is why I try to avoid doctors and hospitals at all cost. Basically as an institutionalized system they are bound to screw things up at a good rate.
