Trouble in River City

There appears to be a very serious problem at the University of Minnesota Fairview Hospital. It has to do with changing the status of children in line for a heart transplant. Does not look good.

One of the local television stations, Kare 11, has had three consecutive pieces on the matter. Art Caplan makes an appearance and is critical.

It is a complicated business, but for those with an interest in our medical school and our reputation, I would encourage you to have a look at the following links. Pay particular attention to the comments. A full post on the matter will follow.
