Becky Akers has a post at LewRockwell.com featuring comments by a nursing home nurse who says that all nursing home residents and employees must be tested for COVID-19, and there are many false positives. It is a “nightmare,” and apparently the health care system is a “terrible mess.”
Becky Akers quotes the nurse:
Truly knowledgeable and competent nurses are not wanted by the non-medical bureaucracy. They don’t like to hear “medical jargon”, or to hear that some policy won’t work or will cause an issue. The suits want dumb, inexperienced direct care staff so they will do what they are told, follow the suits’ directives instead of what they are legally supposed to do, and then they can be scapegoated when something bad happens, while nothing happens to the upper management/non-medical management.
Ouch. I sure as hell am looking forward to my elder years. (I’ll be 60 in just a few years. Just how much longer after that am I considered “elder”?) Yep.
And there is more information about those damn masks in the post. Yeah, oxygen deprivation and bacteria/germ buildup in the mask will protect me from COVID-19.
