Should the sickest patients be removed from transplant lists?
from By Chelsea Adams
Transplant centers are removing the sickest patients from waiting lists following changes in federal policies that govern performance standards. A study from the University of Massachusetts Medical School showed 4,300 people with life-threatening liver diseases were removed from American transplant waiting list between mid-2007 and 2012. That's almost twice as many as the 2,311 removed in the prior five years.
