Others may disagree, but my rule is that the patient has the right of refusal. In fact, he/she has the duty to refuse. Thus, when he/she does not refuse the overture to accept Jesus, we have another soul saved.

Cranky family members may complain when we tell them their loved one has left their clan of atheists, but we make the rules.
Mr. Hold, you bring up a fascinating and timely point. A person in a coma is not necessarily unaware of their surroundings or unconscious. From a medical standpoint, it's actually far more likely that they can hear when spoken to than that they cannot. That said, as long as a person is informed that their soul is being saved and placed in Jesus' loving arms, no affirmation is required. In my own experiences with patients who are comatose, their tacit approval moments before they expire will hold up in Heavenly court. Indeed it is that expiration that signifies such approval as 'hanging on' indicates resistance. I have yet to encounter resistance and am convinced that every soul thus placed in our Dear Savior's warm embrace now lives eternally in the bliss our Heavenly Father bestows upon even the most wretched of souls that supplicate themselves to Him in this way.

Jesus knew the difference between demon possession and a coma and we know that comatose persons occupied by demons would be revived if effective prayer were offered (by a Christian, obviously; Hindu mutterings have the reverse effect) or if oil were applied by an Elder. For someone in a legitimate coma the absence of a response denying Christ or otherwise rejecting Salvation—a spasm perhaps—should suffice.
Luke 9:50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
Jesus explained how absence of opposition to the wonderful work He launched—continued today by Christians in the power of The Holy Ghost—constitutes support for it. Redemption from the revolting circumstances of our birth, so vile in God's eyes, is the pivotal outcome in Christian lives just as Christ is the foundation stone of Christian faith. To oppose that work is beneath contempt, so far beneath as to deserve torture, but not it is the hallmark of acceptance.

Personal opinion doesn't come into it.
. .Jesus said it.
. .. .I accept it.
. .. .. .That settles it.
