While I love the Young Turks, I’m torn on this video. Both Cenk & Ana seem to say they understand the transplant process but they oversimplify the decisions that go into listing & selecting candidates for transplant, whether they are adults, or in this case, children.
One of my friends from Twitter passed me this link this morning. I do not cry easily but after I read it I was in tears because I was so upset for Che Duvall (& his family) whose trust & care was violated by this center.
Transplant is hard enough without dying from preventable risks like this & suffering needlessly for months. His center did wrong by him (& by the three other patients whose trust was so flagrantly violated).
This was a difficult alert to read. However, I commend my center for looking into such issues & challenging transplant centers as a whole to do better by their patients.
While this was a liver transplant based study, I am sure livers are not the only organ that are affected by such practices.
