Last week the New York Times' senior health reporter (Pauline Chen) wrote an article highlighting some of the tough situations doctors and nurses find themselves trapped by in the current health care system. It highlights some of the same issues we've been talking about to date. Does the article jog any of your thoughts? Could you see the moral confusion involved in the situations described? the moral sadness?
(This is the same article Dr. Cooper emailed a link to earlier this weekend.)
If you come across any ethics- or emergency medicine-related stories this week, we'd encourage you to post them here!
