How Much are My Organs Worth? Your Worth More Than You Think

Consider yourself forewarned America. You are worth more to hospitals for your organs than for what they can milk out of your insurance company.

As America evolved into a capitalist society, health and long term care systems became for profit institutions which increasingly pit the quality of care of their consumers with the drive to further earnings.

Please enlighting us as to what those doctors and nurses were saying?

I can tell you that all of them said they would never be donors!

It is just seconds after a person is declared dead, that the harvesting begins, starting with the skin.

I mean everything, and anything that could possibly be used, is harvested.

Honestly, I don’t want to go into graphic detail as to what I was told, to spare anybody who might have a nightmare over this. I know I did, after it was explained to me.

go on then, spill the beans? what do they do?

Shoot man; in today’s economy it makes me want to sign up to sell my stuff,
After I’m gone.
No big to me; what counts is gone and it could mean some cash on my family’s or my end and possible life for another!
I guess the concern would be if someone was in a hurry for your product
before you were ready to sell if ya know what I mean.
I bet all that could be ironed out.

Here is Gordon Brown in 2008 about consent:
Gordon Brown signalled his support for the removal of organs from dead patients without their explicit consent.

In a move to help thousands more people waiting for organ donations, the Prime Minister is backing a policy of “presumed consent”.

It would mean that, unless people opted out of the donor register or family members objected, hospitals would be allowed to take their organs.

Mr Brown, writing in The Sunday Telegraph, said: “A system of this kind seems to have the potential to close the aching gap between the potential benefits of transplant surgery in the UK and the limits imposed by our current system of consent.”

You realise that it HAS to be done that way, or organ donation would be impossible, right?

The second a tissue is deprived of oxygen, it goes into ischemia and begins dying. That’s why organs for transplant are put on ice and can only be used for so many hours. Any longer, and the reperfusion injury from an actively dying organ would kill the transplant patient.

Why does it shock you that there is blood involved in organ harvesting? For someone who claims to work in a hospital, you seem awfully naive.

It doesn’t shock me. People are under the assumption that they may just donate their eyes, or their liver, when in actuality, they are stripped of anything that can be harvested. A whole team comes in to do this, not just one or two people, and the way it was described to me, not always is brain death confirmed before this is actually done.

As I stated in an earlier post, where I linked to how this is done, that is the toned down version. So, no, to answer your question, I am not shocked about there being blood, and never said I was. I stated I was given the bloody version of how this happens.

The article is about how much your organs are worth, not just the proceedure, which in my opinion, is sped up, if a lot of useful material can be had, for money to be made off of.

That’s why in most states, you choose which tissues you want to donate, or whether you’d like to donate all your organs, or even donate your intact body to science. Just because people are ignorant of the process doesn’t mean it’s a bad process.

A whole team comes in to do this, not just one or two people,

Well, yeah. Do you know how hard it is to perform what is essentially several surgeries all by yourself? It wouldn’t happen. You would take too long and the organs would become damaged. What’s wrong with a team doing it, rather than one person?

and the way it was described to me, not always is brain death confirmed before this is actually done.

Source, please. Fearmongering is annoying and counter-productive.

As I stated in an earlier post, where I linked to how this is done, that is the toned down version. So, no, to answer your question, I am not shocked about there being blood, and never said I was. I stated I was given the bloody version of how this happens.

And you state, word for word: “To hear what goes on, is quite disturbing.”

By describing your feelings as being “disturbed”, I assume you were taken aback, surprised, or even. shocked. That’s why I chose that word.

And, again, who cares how bloody the procedure is? Does the amount of blood somehow correlate with how ethical or moral something is?

The article is about how much your organs are worth, not just the proceedure, which in my opinion, is sped up, if a lot of useful material can be had, for money to be made off of.

Surgeons don’t make any more money off of transplants than they do off of any other surgery, to be honest. The higher cost attached to such a procedure are due, in part, to the complicated and time-sensitive nature of the transplant. I’ve yet to see any sources here that show any more profit being made from transplants than from any other surgical procedure.
