About a week ago, at the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic in Bulgaria, a Bulgarian entrepreneur (Ivaylo Penchev, founder of Walltopia), offered a conditional donation of medical ventilators to a state-owned hospital. The donation was conditional upon employees of his company, as well as their family members, receiving preferential treatment, should the need arise. When asked what 'preferential treatment' means, and specifically whether he expects a person who is being ventilated using one of the donated machines to be disconnected to free up a machine for a Walltopia employee who needs ventilation, he said "That's exactly what I expect". The hospital initially accepted but then (after media attention) declined the donation, quoting conflict with the Hippocratic Oath.
Is this kind of donation morally permissible?
Was the hospital right to reject it, given that the net result may be loss of life?
