Exit paid now his death helper

you can help, if people don't want to live any more. You have conversations with them, and partly also with the relatives. On your last day, you pass the die to the glass with sodium-Pentobarbital (NaP) comply. So far, the death assistant and dying assistant of Exit have carried out these activities free of charge, they received only a lump-sum Expense allowance.

The changes now. Exit President Saskia Frei magazine writes in the current members, the organization had introduced "a new, adequate and fair compensation" for death's helper. How high the compensation to fail, don't want speakers Jürg Wiler say. It is known that Exit, Executive Board members receive an hourly wage of 65 Swiss francs.

According to Wiler work, the death of helpers continue to be voluntary, but it is not in a contractual relationship with Exit. You would be a flat rate of compensation per case. "Undetectable above-average expenses" be paid for with a "adequate additional compensation according to effort". "With this step, hand the Exit have the question of compensation as other comparable organizations," says Wiler.

He justified the step with the higher expenses for the die helper that exceeds for some time the extent of a purely voluntary activity. Many people have no family doctor anymore, which makes it difficult to investigations for many assisted Suicides.

Since 2010, the number of members of the 52'000 has grown to over 120'000.

Exit does not want to pay to die a helper only, but also relieve. The largest euthanasia organization, Switzerland, to build a so-called clarification team. This is to decide on the "complex or unclear cases", whether the conditions for euthanasia are met. Exit speaker Wiler for example, the mentally Ill, who Express a wish to Die. In such cases, expert opinion in terms of judgment of at least two different psychiatrists would have to be obtained. The members of this team wishes to recruit to Exit the die helper in advance from the health sector.

The reorganization is the result of the steady growth of the organization. Between 2010 and today, the number of members of the 52'000 has grown to over 120'000 people. In the past year alone Exit was accompanied by 905 people on your last day.

the organization wants to expand its deal with the controversial question of the age of death. If this does not have to be necessarily a fatal disease. There is several disability, the life from the point of view of the Affected not life.

A Commission has prepared measures, the Exit Assembly in may. This is specific advice and training for interested consultant doctors, death, helpers and members of the Secretariat. The proposals are likely to encounter – if they are approved by the GM. For the Swiss doctors compound (FMH), it is clear that euthanasia may only occur in people with severe, incurable diseases.

cantons to the investigations after the suicide is not purely talk

resistance To the Exit is already the subject of so-called legal inspections found to be examined, where after the suicide the circumstances of death of the authorities. The cantons handle these inquiries differently. Depending on uniformed police officers, Doctors and a Prosecutor to be called out. Exit want the police to come out, only civil, and the public Prosecutor's office is by telephone. For a number of members of the administrative procedures according to the assisted Suicide, in which up to six officials are present, as the process of self-determined death itself, a burden Jürg Wiler says.

The Swiss prosecutors ' conference sees "no room for the adoption of universally valid recommendations". The Exit is signed by the cantons to reject the proposals. St. Gallen, Basel-Stadt, Bern, Zurich, and Aargau see no need for action. "A further simplification of the procedure, as it calls for, apparently, the euthanasia organisation, Exit, is due to the applicable legal provisions is hardly possible. The legal situation is clear," writes, for example, the Aargau Prosecutor Daniel von Däniken.
