    Hospitals considering universal DNR for covid patients.

    This is terrible.

    If you have a heart attack or something in the hospital, they are now talking about just letting you die, no matter what you or your family want.

    Sounds like another taste of what socialized medicine would be like.

    Hospitals consider do-not-resuscitate order for all COVID-19 patients

    Some hospitals are considering do-not-resuscitate orders for all COVID-19 patients, citing the high exposure risk for staff as protective equipment supplies run low, The Washington Post reports.

    Chicago-based Northwestern Memorial Hospital is currently discussing a universal DNR policy for COVID-19 patients, regardless of patient or family wishes. Hospital administrators have asked Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker to clarify if state law would allow such policy changes.

    You'd get that kind of decision making with limited resources in any system, socialized medicine or not.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    It's simple triage.
    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nationís political system.

    You're attacking socialized medicine with a failure of non-socialized medicine.

    not really. It is prioritizing the doctors over the patient's welfare. They don't want to expose the doctors to the virus in order to resuscitate someone who is coding.

    We don't have that sort of thing going on here........yet.........

    So not all socialized medicine uses that feature.

    I was reminded of the UK case of the child that they refused to treat, or even allow to leave to country to be treated because they decided it was futile.

    The doctors's welfare is equivalent to patients's. Many many doctors are not allowed to work because they test positive for the virus, meaning less and poorer treatment available for patients as the remaining doctors are overworked even more.
