From this morning's NY Times: More on Schiavo, PVS, Medicare.
The NY Times
is filled with stuff today:
- Schiavo I: article in "The Week in Review" about brain-damage and family decision making by Dudley Clendinen;
- Schiavo II: good piece by Sheila Dewan on the practical aspects of ethics consultations in cases like the Schiavo imbroglio (warning: this link will only last a few days);
- Schiavo III: an informative article about the American Academy of Neurology's guidelines for diagnosing permanent vegetative state (you can read them for yourself here);
- a front-page piece about the dramatic rise of specialty hospitals and the Medicare reimbursement scheme that has contributed to it.
