Please write a two-page paper with your reaction to the following scenario:
The hospital has asked you to be part of a resource allocation committee. This committee has to decide which four out of ten critical patients will receive immediate life-saving surgery; without surgery, all will die.
This hospital only has resources for four patients. There is terrible weather and flooding; a hurricane is coming, so none of the patients can be transferred to another hospital.
What criteria (age, social standing, benefit to society, lifestyle, degree of sickness, etc.) would you use to make this decision?
Your answer should be well-formed using the APA style format, including two current high-quality resources within the last five years, you can use your book as a primary resource. Use grammarly.com and use the library resources from your course shell to support your answer, and should reflect what you’ve learned from the module readings, as well as any life experience you have had with health care systems. Please upload your assignment to the Module 3 Written Assignment – Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT.
