If you follow my social media, you saw the video of the lady who was held hostage by the hospital in Vancouver, Washington…Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital was the name. She went in for treatment for a UTI, and her daughter, who is her medical power of attorney, was not allowed to take her home based on the fact that the woman was asked to take a covid test, which she refused, because she was not exhibiting covid symptoms.
I have a dear friend who took both parents to the ER two weeks ago because they were exhibiting mild covid symptoms. Her father walked into the hospital, her mother was wheeled in via wheelchair, and they spent almost two weeks in the hospital, while my friend and her sister were not allowed to visit their parents. They were given infrequent updates on their parents’ conditions. Finally, they were told that their father needed a ventilator. He was placed on a ventilator, and 48 hours later, he was dead. Within an hour of his death, his wife died. They had not seen their two daughters in two weeks.
A famous singer in Georgia went into the hospital to receive treatment for kidney disease. She was admitted to the hospital, given the treatment, spent a couple of days, and was sent home. After being sent home, she suffered a setback and had to go back to the hospital. Her family was not given any updates on her condition. After mounting frustration, family members gathered outside of the hospital and was allowed to see her through a large window. She was beyond excited to see her family. They only got to wave to each other and smile at each other. Little did they know, that would be the last time they would see each other, because she died less than 72 hours later.
All that to say that the American people need to fight back against this wicked medical system that is killing off our elderly and those who are not able to speak for themselves. It is past time for us to be able to go into the hospital with our grandparents, parents, children and loved ones. It is time for patients to be able to have visitors. It is time for the elderly to have familiar people coming in and out of their rooms to see if they are getting proper care. I am so tired of seeing videos where elderly persons are denied seeing their family members, especially elderly couples who have been together for longer than I have been alive, and they are separated because of the ridiculous rules and standards put forth by the government in the name of saving lives. All the while, these rules and standards have been killing more people than the virus itself.
I have read story after story about suicidal teens and elderly persons who are alone in their homes, isolated from the lives they once used to live, and feeling like they just do not want to live anymore. This is inhumane. This is cruel and unusual punishment. This is insanity. It is time for families to be able to be with their loved ones. We have got to take back this freedom.
If you have suggestions, please feel free to leave comments. I will post those suggestions on all my social media platforms. I will do what little I can to help end this tyranny.
