CHOP apologizes to Rivera family

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia apologized yesterday for the way it communicated with the Riveras, who said they were told daughter Amelia (above) was not eligible for a kidney transplant because of intellectual disability.
Children's hospital apologizes to family of disabled girl for insensitive statement


Happy to see this. That beautiful little girl - like any other child regardless of his or her abilities - deserves the chance to have any medical procedure that he or she needs. I am not impressed with the way the hospital managed this situation in the first place, but it's nice to see them trying to make it right.
