Amid the surge of the delta coronavirus variant, many clinicians are being forced to make difficult and potentially even unethical decisions when their resources are scarce. In this episode, host Rachel Woods sits down with Cynda Rushton, a Hastings Center Fellow and professor of clinical ethics at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and the School of Nursing, to talk about those decisions, what role leaders and administrators play in protecting frontline clinicians from those decisions, and what it means for those delivering care.
