Dying after leaving against medical advice

“This is where we are: Hospitalizations rising, new variants that are more infectious, and many people believing that this is all a hoax, or that millions of people have conspired together to make injections that harm people rather than helping them. Patients leaving AMA and dying because there’s no trust anymore.

This is where we should be: People recognizing that we don’t like wearing masks or getting shots but maybe we should in order to get things under control, people trusting that health care workers are really working toward the best interest of everyone, health care workers optimistic because they see progress.

How do we get from here to there?”

Steve Burgess is a hospitalist and creator, Hospital Medicine Seminars, where he teaches CME focused on updates for those who practice hospital medicine.

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Dying after leaving AMA.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/08/dying-after-leaving-ama.html)
