Pediatr Ann. 2022 Aug;51(8):e306-e310. doi: 10.3928/19382359-20220606-03. Epub 2022 Aug 1.
The response of the health care system to pediatric surgical patients has been dramatically altered by the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Such changes have affected children, families, and the clinicians who care for them. In this review, we highlight some of the ethical issues faced by pediatric surgical patients and pediatric surgeons during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, including the transition to public health ethics, scarcity of resources, exacerbation of disparities, moral distress for pediatric surgeons, and shifting reliance on telemedicine and other remote means of communication. We discuss how these issues have prompted both favorable and unfavorable changes to the surgical care of children and consider which changes may have a lasting effect on pediatric surgery.
