Dr. Ackerman, your story is so important because it reminds us that we MUST listen to the patient and family. I have personally witnessed and experienced many situations where the patient/family are not heard, and because the care team didn't "hear" the patient, their assessment of the needs may be incorrect. The team may make "assumptions" about what is really going on in the situation, just as happened in your example.
