Letter From Chief of Staff: End of Life Option Act

Dear Medical Staff,

As you may have heard, California’s End of Life Option Act (EOLOA) was recently deemed invalid by a California court.

Although we anticipate further court proceedings challenging this action, at this time Cedars-Sinai is halting its participation in the EOLOA, including any Cedars-Sinai-based EOLOA consultations, orders and prescriptions.

We will update you as we receive clarification about the validity of this law. In the meantime, please contact the Center for Healthcare Ethics at 310-423-9636 if you have any questions about Cedars-Sinai patients who have already initiated this process or terminally ill patients who are asking about eligibility for aid-in-dying drugs.

Clement C. Yang, MD
Chief of Staff
