I cannot describe how much I hate these dispassionate reports about depriving disabled people of medical care and leaving them to die. Because that is what's being discussed here. No one who thinks "maybe this isn't ethical, actually" ever gets quoted.
U.S. Hospitals Prepare Guidelines For Who Gets Care Amid Coronavirus Surge
Being a doctor was scary at the best of times but having to decide who lives & dies due to bad planning, racism &scarcity would have been my worst nightmare. When med. historians say disease is not only biological but profoundly social this is what we mean
all of these 'ethical' dilemmas stem from underlying political problems like austerity, capitalism generally, etc etc
"Could other professions also be a factor, meaning that a hospital might prioritize, say, a hedge fund manager over a landscaper?"
