  • Futile care refers to costly but essentially useless medical care by hospitals and doctors, often for the elderly in the last few days of a patient's life under the guise they're following the Hippocratic Oath; but in actuality it's done to CYA and protect themselves from overly litigious relatives. End result, the patient still dies and health insurance rates soar.
