My bed is ready

A man in his 90s has a syncopal episode. In other words, he faints. He is conscious now and does not want to go to the hospital. He’s very sure about this. He says the last time he fainted he went to the hospital and nothing abnormal was found, and he wasn’t happy about all the time he spent there.

The crew tries to explain to him that syncope is not to be taken lightly because in someone his age it is highly likely it is due to a life-altering event or even a potentially fatal one. They try to convince him to be transported.

In response, he says that he already has his plot arranged, and if it’s his time to go then so be it.

How do you argue with that?
