    Hastings Cent Rep 2019; 49(4):18-26Sabin JE, Cocoros NM, … Platt R
  • In 2012, a U.S. Institute of Medicine report called for a different approach to health care: "Left unchanged, health care will continue to underperform; cause unnecessary harm; and strain national, state, and family budgets."

    Sci Eng Ethics 2012; 18(1):117-41Polder-Verkiel SE

This closely resembles the case of Kitty Genovese in 1964, where 39 neighbours supposedly watched an attacker assault and did not call until it was too late. This paper examines the role of internet …
  • The physician as ambivalent Samaritan: will internists resuscitate victims of out-of-hospital emergencies? [Journal Article]
    J Gen Intern Med 1998; 13(7):491-4Gross CP, Reisman AB, Schwartz MD

For those scenarios in which they were reluctant to help, they were asked why. Knowledge of Good Samaritan statutes was also assessed. Respondents we…
