Georgia teen denied life-saving heart transplant due to ‘non-compliance’

http://rt.com/usa/georgia-teen-denie...ransplant-416/

Quote:
A Georgia teenager in dire need of a new heart was denied a transplant after doctors determined that his history of poor grades and prior issues with the law did not provide “evidence” that he would attend doctor’s appointments or take his medication.

Physicians told Anthony Stokes’ family that although he likely has less than six months to live due to an enlarged heart condition, the 15-year-old will not be placed on a transplant list due to concerns that he would not attend necessary medical appointments or take his medication.

“They said they don’t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups,” Anthony’s mother, Melencia Hamilton, told ABC affiliate WSB-TV.

Stokes is currently being treated at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston hospital and has been there since July 14.

“The non-compliance is fabricating, because they don’t want to give him a heart,” said Stokes’ mentor and family friend, Mack Major. “This is unacceptable because he must lose his life because of a non-compliance.”

Civil rights organizations have taken note of Anthony Stokes’s case, stating that an individual’s past should not impact the quality of medical care that they receive.

“He’s been given a death sentence because of a broad and vague excuse of non-compliance,” said Christine Young Brown, president of the Newton-Rockdale chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC).

The seemingly vague determination that the teen is in “non-compliance” seems to be related to the hospital’s stringent guidelines for individuals placed on life-saving transplant lists.

The hospital’s inability to cite specific reasons for its decision has been a source of the family’s growing indignation. The facility has so far only cited generic internal rules which have disqualified Stokes from receiving a transplant.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta spokeswoman Patty Gregory said in a statement, “The well-being of our patients is always our first priority. We are continuing to work with this family and looking at all options regarding this patient's health care. We follow very specific criteria in determining eligibility for a transplant of any kind.”

The current lack of donors for procedures such as heart transplants means that hospitals follow strict guidelines as to who can receive a life-saving organ. But the hospital’s declaration has not deterred the teen’s family and loved ones from pushing back on his behalf.

“We must save Anthony’s life,” Major told CBS Atlanta. “We don’t have a lot of time to do it, but it’s something that must be done.”
Justice for Anthony!

So, why did the doctors judge that he wouldn't be likely to attend appointments and such? Is there some history that we aren't being told about here?

I mean, it seems unlikely someone in this position wouldn't manage their health carefully, but the story is so incomplete that you can't tell. Maybe this "RT.com" should dispatch a journalist to find out?

What's funny is that I'm pretty sure you bring that up more than I ever did. And it's dancing horses.

Apparently the rodeo clown is in charge of handing out all the organs.

Quote:
Studies show African Americans, and minorities in general, are referred to the wait list for a kidney transplant later, and once on the list, take longer to finally obtain a lifesaving organ. What’s interesting is that a 2009 study showed that this race gap does not exist in Canada, where, presumably, the same genetic factors affect African Americans.

"A 2007 study by researchers at the University of Wisconsin Medical School found that African-American patients in Wisconsin were 75 percent less likely than white patients to get a kidney. Other studies and government data document similar disparities across the country.

Gee, I wonder if there are any contextualizing factors?

But yeah, I'm sure there is a group of Republicans in a room someplace who reject all the applications with the "negro" box checked.

Well hell, I guess this can't be Obama's new "If I had a son" distraction project. Time for Barry to find the media a new shiny object because I think the rodeo clown is losing its luster.

Yeah, because Barry had really been playing up the rodeo story.
