So, people that get an infected gallbladder, strangulated hernia, appendicitis, should just be left to die? I think your response is over-emotional. How could a charismatic Christian, like me, do this to this to humans?
I also had a patient who was elderly, defer an operation for bowel obstruction. She died a few days later! I was completely against over-treatment of the elderly. I was, even, called before a medical review board for not treating a vegetative patient, with $1,000/day antibiotics, when $1.00/day antibiotic was appropriate. You are wrong in your assumptions. I never prevented death. I was in it to prevent suffering. But, they got me out because I "cared too much, and should not have been practicing cutting edge medicine in a small town hospital".
