My purpose in writing this is to explain my experience as a nurse in the hospital during Covid and then explain some of what is happening in the hospitals currently. I have worked as a nurse for 31 years and I was working as a case manager at a large hospital in Colorado during Covid and when the Covid "vaccine" was rolled out. I currently work for an insurance company reviewing medical records because I refused to get the vax and though my employer honored my religious exemption, they were requiring 2x/week testing as a condition of my employment even though I had never been required to be tested the whole time working there.

While working at the large teaching hospital, I was continuously shocked at what I was seeing. Doctors were not being respectful of patients and their family's wishes, they were trash-talking them during rounds and then the Attending physicians (who are supposed to be the most experienced and responsible for training the new MD's), were pressuring staff who had not received the vax. I had enough one day when a young Attending, was guilt tripping my coworker about not getting it and assuring her it was safe. I turned around and said, "How can you say it's safe when the VAERS report #'s are going up every day with adverse reactions from this?" His answer was, "What is the VAERS report?" It was unbelievable.

I was hopeful when I worked in the ICU around the Intensivists and Pulmonologists that I would get some professional and intelligent dialogue and care from them, but instead, one of the doctors went off about how it's so stupid that the patient wants Ivermectin as it's not proven to work. I said, "Well, if the patient is on their death bed, I don't see what the harm is in trying that. We do stuff like that all the time in healthcare as a last resort. All it requires is for them to have informed consent." He said nothing, and after that I realized the awful slippery slope that healthcare is going down.

The start of protocols came around 2000 I believe and that initially seemed like a good idea as they are supposed to be best practice. While working in the ICU years ago, nurses met with the Pulmonologist who had created the insulin sliding scale protocol and asked him to modify it as the patient's glucose was consistently dropping low in the AM and he did. That's when hospitals left the medical care up to the doctors to do what was best and were adamantly opposed to kickbacks or the appearance of kickbacks.

During Covid, I couldn't believe when I started reading about hospitals getting funding for putting Covid patients on ventilators or for using Remdesivir, as that 100% goes against the Anti-Kickback law which is a part of our annual training in all hospitals. They tell us we can't take food or gifts, like a gift card, from pharmaceutical companies because it looks bad, but evidently millions of dollars are okay. In relation to the Covid "vaccine", I was dumbfounded when my hospital made it mandatory because it was 100% experimental, no long-term studies had been completed and none of the people in the trial had been children or pregnant women so how could they say it is safe and effective for everyone. I have reviewed many oncology (cancer) charts through the years and when someone signs up to take an experimental drug as part of their treatment, usually as a last resort, they are required to go through a multiple page document going over the possible adverse reactions and risks with taking it, sign a form stating that all their questions had been answered, and then are required to see their physician or nurse weekly for lab work. This is to make sure they aren't having a reaction. So how could they get away without even explaining the risk factors to people before giving them the Covid "vaccine" and worse, make it mandatory? I couldn't believe it.

What I am attempting to express to you, is please stay out of the hospitals unless you are seriously injured or sick. Hospitals are now giving Remdesivir to stable Covid patients, whereas when it first came out it was only recommended to patients in the ICU. For example, someone who recently came in with a little shortness of breath but O2 saturation was 90% on RA, so didn't even need oxygen and they gave Remdesivir. An O2 saturation of 88% and up is fine, especially if you live at high elevation. This leads me to believe they are still receiving incentives from Pfizer when Remdesivir is given. They are also over-diagnosing people as septic per the sepsis protocol, and they give anywhere between 1-3 Liters of IV fluid with that diagnosis. Now, some people can tolerate that much fluid, but many can't and shouldn't receive it, especially if they have a history of heart failure or kidney failure. It quickly puts them into fluid overload and the way to get the fluid off is giving Lasix, which is a diuretic, which then taxes the kidneys. This has been aggravated by the Covid vax because studies are showing it injuries the kidneys, then add Remdesivir which is showing to damage the kidneys and liver, and then add all this's going to cause problems. True sepsis is when someone comes into the hospital with an obvious infection, they are sometimes confused, and their blood pressure is low, and the heart rate can be high. Those are the people who should receive higher amounts of IV fluid, not someone who appears to have a mild infection.

The majority of our current hospital healthcare providers have lost the ability, were never trained, or are too afraid, to think critically and to think how human physiology works which should be driving their decisions, instead of checking off a protocol. Medicine is not one size fits all and it should never be practiced that way. Another issue is until these providers acknowledge that the Covid vax is causing damage to people's organs, the treatments they are giving now, will most likely not help. They are refusing to acknowledge what is at the root of the patient's problem or are afraid to talk about it, which is preventing them from actually helping patients.

If you end up having to go to a hospital and something doesn't seem right, trust your instinct, it will more than likely be correct. Most hospitals have been compromised by greed instead of following the oath to, "Do no harm". Always have a family member, preferably someone with a medical background and/or someone who is willing to fight for patient autonomy and not afraid to be an advocate. Bring a copy of the Patient Bill of Rights with you and if you need surgery, ask to have an Autotransfusion, which is when they give your blood back to you during the surgery. This will cut down on your risk of having to have a blood transfusion from someone you don't know. One last thing, the doctors are getting to be experts at asking everyone their code status immediately when they come into the hospital. It used to be the nurses would have to bring it up to the physicians to have the difficult conversation because they didn't like to admit that they couldn't save their patients. I believe the hospitals have now made it a mandatory question for all patients even if they are not being seen for a critical issue. Some may think that is good, but when it leads to the doctor trying to convince the patient and family that there is no hope after a very short time in the hospital, the motives are questionable. Lastly, know that you or your family are allowed to sign yourself out of the hospital and you are allowed to refuse treatment that the doctor is recommending. It's called bodily autonomy and it's your right.
