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

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.
