Everyday between noon and two, we three sit to triage which patients are close enough to irreversible harm or death, to undergo surgery. Cancer, vision threatening, fractures, infected wounds....our health care system has collapsed. We cannot provide health care for patients needing our care. I became a surgeon to make people well, not to deny care to people needing care. How did we get here? The hubris and in incompetence of our leaders. You gambled, we lost. Vaccinate in hot spots. Stay home. Let’s end this horror.
