Hospital Ethics in the Face of COVID-19

Our guest is Aaron Kheriaty, MD, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, Irvine, where he is Director of the Bioethics Program. Dr. Kheriaty is the chair of his hospital’s ethics committee and is presently working on a task force with the University of California Office of the President to prepare for the possibility that a surge in demand for intensive care due to the coronavirus pandemic will outstrip the supply of equipment and staff. He is the author of numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and in the lay press, many of which are focused on end-of-life issues.
