Doing the Right Thing

Date: February 1, 2012

Fall 2011 Issue

Kudos to Daniel Munoz, MD ’04, who wrote the Learning Curve column that appeared in the Fall 2011 issue [“Grappling with the Code”]. It is so refreshing to learn that there are health care providers who have a sense of moral duty to do what they think is right, as [occurred] in the case of “Mrs. D.” I can only hope that there are more doctors [like] Dr. Munoz who let their conscience be their guide. I hope that when I am in my later years, I have a doctor overseeing my care who will do what is right by taking each case individually and not just going by the “code status” because it’s expected of them.
