"Those folks stayed independent for far longer. They were admitted to the hospital less. And the other key result is that the hospital didn't have money to keep the geriatricians going, so they got rid of the department entirely. So it was this incredibly successful result in serving needs that people have, but we also demonstrated that we don't have any will or interest in sustaining it. The geriatricians have training in basic skills that we're not teaching other people—97 percent of medical students never learn about geriatric skills." Atul Gawande
