Moral injury has spread throughout the house of medicine taking ~400 of my beloved colleagues' lives each year to suicide; those numbers predate the pandemic. Advocating for medically appropriate care has become near impossible. It’s no surprise that soaring costs and plummeting quality medical care have led to the morbid reality we are living through today.
