VIDEO: Considering the Gift of Life
This video addresses the prevailing misconception related to organ donation that medical care may be compromised if doctors and nurses know the patient has enrolled to be an organ donor.
The video, “Considering the Gift of Life,” shares the thoughts of healthcare providers in Upstate New York about their experiences with organ donation and transplantation, and illustrates how saving a patient’s life is always the first and most important objective. Organ donation is only considered upon the death of a patient.
The video was created by the University of Rochester Medical Center’s Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network, in recognition of National Donate Life Month 2013.
