I just finished reading a very stimulating article that drew an interesting comparison between the airline industry and emergency medicine titled, “Why ‘Be More Like Pilots’ Just Doesn’t Fly in Emergency Medicine” written by Dr. McGowan. The article highlights what the book “Why Hospitals Should Fly” completely misses about why the airline industry and emergency medicine cannot be compared. Building on this discussion, I’d like to address one key problem that the article failed to cite, and one of the key problems that no one really wants to mention: lack of due process protections.
