Does OAP have a right to die?

Could I add another element to the 'right to die' debate?

A young, recently qualified nurse of my acquaintance has been upset by the treatment of an elderly patient. He is very frail, in his eighties and has no family, apart from an older sister.

Twice in as many days, he has suffered 'fatal' heart attacks, but has been resuscitated. How does this man exercise his 'right to die'?
