Judge Directs UCLA Doctors to Continue Woman’s Regular Medical Care


A judge Wednesday directed UCLA doctors to continue for now giving an ill woman life-sustaining care rather than “comfort” steps that her son says her physicians were considering for implementation as soon as Friday, possibly leading to her death.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff stopped short of issuing a temporary restraining order against the UCLA doctors sought by David L. Carey of Chatsworth, the son of Jeanne M. Carey. The lawsuit was brought Tuesday against the UC Regents and several UCLA physicians.

After hearing testimony from David Carey, the judge continued the TRO hearing until Monday afternoon, but said the regents and UCLA are ordered in the meantime to “maintain the status quo and (Jeanne Carey’s) current level of care and not institute comfort care measures pending further order of the court.”
