Doctors at Children’s Hospital and an independent pediatric neurologist from Stanford University have concluded the girl is brain dead.
The hospital wants to remove her from life support, but the family said they believe she is still alive.
Hospital spokesman Sam Singer said Sunday in an interview with KRON-TV that Children’s Hospital will facilitate a transfer if the family finds an outside physician to insert breathing and feeding tubes.
“We’ll do our best, if it is within the confines of things that are legal and medically correct, to be of assistance to them,” Singer said.
“At a certain point, they have to be able to look themselves in the eye and realize that this young lady is dead and is not coming back under any circumstances.”
