The Jerusalem Ethics Center ????? ?????? ???????? recently held a discussion about how medical personnel prioritize who they treat when there are people injured in a terrorist attack and there are limited resources. In situations where the attacker and the victim(s) require medical treatment, if the attacker is more seriously injured should he/she be treated first?
Several experts presented different perspectives as well as historical precedents including Daniel Milo, the director of the Jerusalem Ethics Center; Prof. Avinoam Reches, former longtime chairman of the ethics bureau of the Israel Medical Association (IMA) who is now in charge of medical ethics at the Jerusalem Ethics Center; Dr. Tami Karni, a surgeon at Assaf HaRofeh Medical Center and currently the head of the IMA’s ethics bureau; Rabbi Yuval Cherlow from Tzohar ???, who is also head of religious ethics at the Jerusalem Ethics Center; Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, chairman of ZAKA, disaster victim identification and rescue; Dr. Eli Yaffe, head of ??? ??? ???? – Magen David Adom Training Division and Dr. Ofer Merin, a former surgeon and the Deputy Director-General and Head of Shaare Zedek’s Trauma Unit.
