The consequences of a diluted doctor-patient relationship

The American health care industry is going through tremendous changes. One of the changes most apparent to patients is the dilution of the physician-patient relationship. In the past, a single doctor would be the patient's primary point of contact for their health care needs.

In 2009, a young woman was admitted to a New York hospital after overdosing on a combination of pharmaceutical drugs. Despite showing signs of life, such as curling her toes and demonstrating resistance to being placed on a ventilator, the patient was declared dead and the hospital staff prepared to remove her organs for donation to needy patients.

Hospital Transplants Kidney Into Wrong Patient, Program Suspended
