I have mentioned that I’ve been an ICU RN for the past 15 years. This is honestly what I am seeing happen in my personal experience. You can have all of the high -fallutin (yes, that is a word) ideas that you want, but I dare you to actually look into the eyes of these people in need and deny them what is needed, truly. How we treat the each other defines us as a people.
A documentary titled “Remote Area Medical” is out detailing one crews mission to address this issue and I highly recommend you take a look, especially with your children or those you care about.
