Who decides

What do you do when a child who was declared "brain dead" continues to live despite the doctors and the courts?

Jathi McMath continues to live at home and now her family insists the courts have to reverse their declaration she is dead.

Again, Catholic medical ethics say that this is extraordinary treatment, and that it is a personal decision if you want to use it. 

However, if she is "alive", then remember the hospital is open for a lawsuit because their rush to judgement in declaring her dead looks more like they are trying to get out of a big lawsuit for her expenses needed to keep her living.

And then there is the transplant angle.
