What would Dr. Emanuel think of their quality of life?

My latest comment to appear in ModernHealthcare's print edition.  It was in response to this.

When I worked at Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital in suburban Chicago, I'd sometimes have lunch outside the spinal cord center on sunny days with veterans prostate on their gurneys unable to move much but still able to enjoy sun, a smoke and conversation. I wonder what Doc Emanuel would make of their quality of life (or the expense of their care)?
