The family of Eddie Garcia finally decided to put the veteran actor to do-not-resuscitate status.
According to Dr. Tony Rebosa, spokesperson of Eddie Garcia, the relatives of the actor already asked the doctors not to do any Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to their patient once his heart stopped working despite the life support.
However, they denied the reports that they’re already considering to remove the life support of Garcia.
Lilibeth Romero, Garcia’s long-time partner said that they’re still hoping for a miracle to happen.
“Please be informed that the family of Mr. Eddie Garcia has not authorized nor has it consented to withdrawal of life support. They have however agreed to place him on DNR status,” the statement read.
It is the policy of hospitals to perform CPR on all patients whose heart stops suddenly unless a doctor writes an order not to resuscitate (DNR).
Meanwhile, Garcia’s friends and fans are kept doing their prayers for the miraculous recovery of the veteran actor.
Garcia is in a coma since June 8 after he stumbled to a cable wire during a taping for his new television show in GMA-7.
As of writing, Garcia has been on a life support machine at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Makati Medical Center (MCC).
