The world is ever-increasingly cruel
By Shepard Ambellas | Intellihub.com
A new article written by Julie Steenhuysen and Sharon Begley titled Some U.S. hospitals weigh withholding care to Ebola patients points out the “unthinkable” as our society is truly in shambles. In fact, they [the medical establishment] are actually planning on not treating any future Ebola patients and if they do the facilities may be limited to 20 in number nationwide.
While this is an astonishing announcement which will likely shock some, it follows lockstep with the failed healthcare systems in America, truly showcasing the epic failure of modern society. I mean after all, it doesn’t appear they are limiting care in West Africa. In fact, the U.S. military is in the region setting up even more facilities at the expense of taxpayers.
Apparently the fact that two nurses were infected after helping to treat Thomas Duncan, the first man to die from Ebola in the U.S., may just be too much. Although the Texas hospital which treated Duncan was inadequately prepared for handling Ebola patients and failed protocol themselves, countless Americans may now die as future treatment for the majority of the infected may be denied. Essentially the medical establishment is leaving us in the dark.
Their concern is that poorly trained or poorly equipped hospitals that perform invasive procedures will expose staff to bodily fluids of a patient when they are most infectious. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is working with kidney specialists on clinical guidelines for delivering dialysis to Ebola patients. The recommendations could come as early as this week.
The possibility of withholding care represents a departure from the “do everything” philosophy in most American hospitals and a return to a view that held sway a century ago, when doctors were at greater risk of becoming infected by treating dying patients.
“This is another example of how this 21st century viral threat has pulled us back into the 19th century,” said medical historian Dr. Howard Markel of the University of Michigan.
Ladies and gentlemen, they must have been lying to us all along as it’s clear the medical industry in America is incompetent and incapable. In fact, in some ways it reminds me of the fast food industry.
