This paper presents a discussion of three models for provision of care to seriously ill infants and their families. The statistical, the wait until near-certainty and the individual models are defined and compared. Comparisons were based on quality of life, legality, responsibility, withdrawing/withholding treatment and potential injury. The individual model offers the most humane and legally sound basis for care. Suggestions to redefine the model of care in the United States are offered with nursing leading the way.
