ABSTRACT

Health Care Resource Allocation Decisionmaking During a Pandemic   [open html - 0B]

From the Summary: "In the current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, many policymakers are working with no established plan or methods for making decisions about admissions and discharges, or for determining allocation of scarce but lifesaving health care resources for patients and personal protective equipment for health care and long-term care workers. In many settings, decisions are being made ad hoc, with limited information and no input from patients and families. U.S. health systems, unlike those of many industrialized nations, are fragmented, further complicating any effort to identify and replicate successful responses to these ethical dilemmas across health care settings."
