Response to But it is.
Mr. Ettinger made it totally clear that "nurses or paramedics or anyone else hired to help" would NOT be for assisting in suicide. These kinds of professionals can test for the absence of vital signs to determine a prompt pronouncement - none of that is assisting in suicide. After pronouncement they can help with washout and stabilization, preparation for vitrification perfusion, whatever. If it were me, I think I'd want someone on "standby" 24/7 to monitor my condition in case it worsens more quickly than anticipated, so that the proper people could be called to be on hand to do the above - help get a prompt pronouncement, help with post-mortem cryopreservation.
He made a statement that could have been misinterpreted, and you did. He explained it. I think you need to leave it at that and accept his explanation in good faith.
