'There's no lung left': Man told he's going to die by doctor on robot video
"I look up and there's this robot at the door", she said, adding that the doctor on the screen "looked like he was in a chair in a room somewhere".
Wilharm says that heartbreaking news hurt even more, delivered through a machine.
Wilharm said, "Devastated. I was going to lose my grandfather". "Unfortunately, there's nothing we can treat very effectively", he said, according to a video recording that Wilharm shot on her cellphone.
The video exchange that Wilharm gave to USA Today showed the machine being used on that Monday to tell grandfather and granddaughter that the hospital had run out of effective treatments.
She said Mr Quintana had passed away with his family by his side and the compassion he deserved.
A man was given a terminal diagnosis at a California hospital's ICU via a "robot" through which he had a video conference with the doctor.
As her grandfather had a hearing problem, she had to relay the news, KTVU reported. Distorted by the speakers, the doctor's voice was inaudible to Ernest, leaving Annalisia to repeat everything he said to her grandfather. She said it did not replace previous conversations with patients and family members.
Kaiser Permanente Senior Vice-President Michelle Gaskill-Hames issued a statement following the passing of Mr. Quintana nearly a week later.
In response, the senior vice president for Kaiser Permanente in south Alameda County, Michelle Gaskill-Hames, said that the situation was unusual and that the facility's officials "regret falling short" of the patient and his family's expectations.
"The use of the term "robot" is inaccurate and inappropriate", Gaskill-Hames exclaimed. It "allows a small hospital to have additional specialists such as a board-certified critical care physician available 24/7, enhancing the care provided and bringing additional consultative expertise to the bedside".
"This secure video technology is a live conversation with a physician using tele-video technology, and always with a nurse or other physician in the room to explain the goal and function of the technology", Gaskill-Hames added.
"Our health care staff receive extensive training in the use of telemedicine, but video technology is not used as a replacement for in-person evaluations and conversations with patients", reads the statement, which was published in full by KTVU. "It felt like someone took the air out of me", she said.
