Description

How do we decide which patients should receive scarce resources during the COVID-19 pandemic? Rav Hershel Schachter's definition of "simultaneous" patients. Adding a new patient to a ventilator which is already hooked up to an existing patient. Using a blanket DNR for patients to avoid infection and/or use of PPE resources during CPR. Not psak, of course.
