You have to admit, when someone travels across the country to take care of people they don’t even know in a truly dangerous place, that’s someone with a lot of guts.
Also, someone that is willing to say that a system that is hurting people has just as much guts.
Maybe it is because there is so many people coming in and some of the doctors just don’t know what to do, but there is a lot of bad stuff happening in New York.
A registered nurse from Nevada decided to volunteer to work in states where the COVID crisis is overwhelming the hospitals, and what she found will blow your mind. Don’t miss this.
A Nevada nurse who traveled to New York to help treat COVID-19 patients has posted a tearful Facebook Live video claiming that patients are being “murdered” by “gross negligence and complete medical mismanagement.”
Nicole Sirotek, a nurse from Elko, Nevada, was assigned to two different hospitals in New York City.
“I am literally telling you that they are murdering these people,” Sirotek said in the terrifying video.
The video begins with Sirotek explaining that every time she attempts to advocate on behalf of one of her patients, management takes them away and reassigns her to another unit. She said that this happened at both of the hospitals she has worked at in the city.
“I legitimately don’t even know what to do anymore. Even advocacy groups don’t give a sh-t about these people,” she said. “Black lives don’t matter here. No lives matter here.”
The nurse explains staffing is not the problem. “We have more than enough staff,” Sirotek claims. “The problem is a total mismanagement of the staff and residents who aren’t being watched.”
“I know not everybody is going to live. I’m not that f*cking green, or ignorant, or bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to think that, okay? I know we’re going to have a sh*t ton of people die — but these people aren’t dying from COVID.”
Sirotek related how one ventilator was not placed correctly and the patient died. This is something that is easy to fix and is a rookie mistake. If both lungs are not inflating, then it’s obvious that the vent is not properly placed.
“Like only one-side of his f*cking chest is inflating,” the nurse said. “So, he dies.” She goes on to talk about a patient with a very slow heartbeat and how the resident physician also caused that patient’s death.
