hiroshimi  Even though legally the wife has the right to make the decision first, then the adult children. However, it's still best the wife and children come to a consensus that reflects pt's wish. If there is a disagreement between them that can't be resolved, then the doctor will need to follow what the wife said. In these difficult situations, you are not only treating the patient, but also the whole family so you would try to integrated the family into the process. In short, i feel like the point of this question is don't be an asshole, and don't choose answer that have absolute words in it like "only" +3
