Arras, John D.

Hastings Center Report. 1994 Sep-Oct; 24(5, Suppl.): S19-S28.
...As we have seen, many uses of high-tech home care are viewed by willing individuals and families as unalloyed benefits, as cherished opportunities to be with loved ones at home rather than in a hospital, or to resume a normal life outside the home. In this section, we shall dwell on the darker side, investigating the more problematic implications of high-tech home care for patients and caregivers. Here we examine a set of ethical and social problems that, while not being unique to this form of care, at least display a characteristic "spin" in their high-tech environment.
