patients in the healthcare system for as short a time as possible,
even if that means denying lifesaving or sustaining
Indeed, I could give dozens of accounts of families who
have called us for help that would send chills down your spine, but
consider a call we received just last month – the story of Tabetha
Long. It’s an amazing story of perseverance and recovery, but also an
alarming example of how far we’ve drifted from properly caring for our
medically vulnerable. CONTINUE Please Consider
