The article disclosed the details of numerous deaths in the heart transplant program at a prominent Chicago hospital, Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center. Among the central findings, the piece noted that several of Rush's own cardiac surgeons had serious concerns about medical decisions and patient deaths in the fast-growing and aggressive program. Concerns included the possible mismatching of donor hearts with some patients. The article also reported on patients who died; one died when a surgeon showed up late for an operation; another when his cardiac deterioration wasn't detected for hours; and another when medical staff members failed to take note of a recent transfusion that led to "hyper-acute" heart rejection.
