Family seeks transfer of brain dead girl
December 27, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

OAKLAND — A lawyer for the family of a 13-year-old girl who was declared brain dead after complications from a tonsillectomy says Jahi McMath’s relatives want to transfer her to a nursing home that is willing to keep caring for her.

But lawyer Christopher Dolan said Thursday that doctors at Children’s Hospital Oakland need to insert breathing and feeding tubes into the girl before the nursing home can take her.

Dolan declined to name the care facility, but said it is located in the San Francisco Bay Area and is not equipped to perform surgeries.

Children’s Hospital wants to take Jahi off life support, a move that her family opposes.

A judge this week gave the hospital permission to proceed after 5 p.m. on Monday to give the girl’s mother time to appeal.
