Has pen­du­lum swung too far on rules?

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS / EDITORIALS -

In “Not big on rules” (Mod­ern Health­care, May 6, p. 26), I cer­tainly sym­pa­thize with many of the sen­ti­ments shared. And per­haps the pen­du­lum has swung too far in the other di­rec­tion re­gard­ing rules and reg­u­la­tions for physi­cians. How­ever, the days are gone—and should be— when the physi­cian knows what’s “best” de­spite the wishes of the pa­tient and fam­ily. End-of-life care is the most dra­matic ex­am­ple.
