"Respecting Disability Rights — Toward Improved Crisis Standards of CareMich"

19.05.2020
The New England Journal of Medicine

In times of emergency, many legal strictures can flex. For example, to enable hospitals to respond to Covid-19, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently waived a swath of federal regulatory requirements. But  though  officials’  emergency  powers are extensive, the ability to discard antidiscrimination protec-tions  is  not  among  them.  A  hall-mark of our legal system is that our  commitment  to  prohibiting  invidious discrimination remains steadfast  even  in  times  of  emer-gency.
