Matching and Mismatching in Transplantation Work Processes
Jesica Santillan's death after a donor-recipient mismatch during transplantation shook people's confidence in transplant surgery and the organ donation system in the United States. This chapter sketches the process of organ transplantation relevant to understanding donor-recipient mismatches. It analyzes the dynamics of the transplant system, the manner in which a variety of factors surrounding organ transplantation play out in the conduct of patient care, and the complex biological, administrative, and social issues involved in allocation and determining compatibility between donor and recipients.
