What would Dr. Emanuel think of their qual­ity of life?

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the blog post on Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel (Mod­ern­Health­care.com, Sept. 23), when I worked at Ed­ward Hines Jr. VA Hos­pi­tal in sub­ur­ban Chicago, I’d some­times have lunch out­side the spinal cord cen­ter on sunny days with vet­er­ans pros­trate on their gur­neys, un­able to move much but still able to en­joy sun, a smoke and con­ver­sa­tion. I won­der what Doc Emanuel would make of their qual­ity of life (or the ex­pense of their care)?
