Today, August 1, 2020, is the one-year anniversary of the New Jersey Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act.
Compassion & Choices reports that 42 large medical centers, hospitals, and hospices across the state have adopted policies allowing their doctors to offer MAID to terminally ill patients who request it.
The New Jersey Hospital Association has a implementation toolkit here. Compassion & Choices has a free online “Find Care” tool that enables New Jerseyans to find the nearest healthcare facility with this patient-supportive policy.
