We faced many of the same problems with our hospital and doctors as the Schara’s did in Wisconsin.
From what I experienced, Sacred Heart Hospital has left it’s Christian foundation and adherence to the Hippocratic oath . It was quite a shock to realize my wife and I had no say in the treatment she received once they said Covid had been detected, even though she had no Covid symptoms. There was little informed consent. I was not allowed to see her in ICU for 23 days. When their treatment plan failed they refused to try ours. When they decided it was time for her to die they put her on "comfort care". Even though she had been on a ventilator from day 2 and heavily drugged so that she was unarousable, medically paralyzed in a level 3 coma, the last three days they upped her drugs to 5ml/hr hydromorphone, 10ml/hr Midazolam, 120ml/hr Ketamine and 15ml/hr of norepinephrine .This combination of Hydromorphone and Midazolam in higher doses has been used in some states for death row executions and is also called a euthanasia cocktail by people trying to stop the euthanasia of elderly people. Were the amounts of these drugs given to my wife enough to end her life like what happened to Grace? I had to negotiate to see her on the day she died. I had no idea about the drugs and end of life sedatives used on her till I read the records months later. The hospital refused to talk to me in person after she died. They gave me few satisfactory answers to the questions I had about her treatment. When hospitals are willingly accepting monetary incentives from the Federal government to treat people with ineffective and life-threatening treatment protocols for Covid you know something is very wrong. People are calling this partnership between the corporate hospitals like Providence and the federal government the Nazification of American medicine. I agree! Totally ungodly, evil and inhumane. The Covid plandemic has proved to me that government and medicine is truly a deadly mixture. I pray the Schara’s will be successful in awakening the American people. These hospitals and doctors need to be held responsible for their actions. We are trying to start a local support group in Spokane and if you would like to join us, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My heart goes out to you and your family over the tragic and unnecessary loss of beautiful Grace! I have heard your story twice now on 2 different shows and applaud your courage in speaking out and shedding light on the inhumane and horrific treatment of humans by our health care systems.
I am a nurse of 22+ years, and am appalled at the direction our hospitals are heading. I (wisely) decided not to take the covid jab and was subsequently fired by the company I had dedicated my entire career to. Of course, "patient safety" was their stated reason for firing more than 800 experienced caregivers throughout the hospital system. Over the course of the next few months, I watched as every single one of my former coworkers got covid, and were allowed to return to work if they were not symptomatic. I myself had covid prior to being fired, so technically was "safer" to work than any one of them thanks to my God-given acquired natural immunity. I ended up with another job literally within days, at another local system that accepted religious exemptions. Despite my disgust for current treatment protocols, or lack thereof, I feel like I was called to be an advocate for patients who couldn't have their families present, and to advocate for compassionate and equitable treatment for unvaccinated patients.
My thought after listening to your heartbreaking story was this: DNR does NOT equal Do Not Treat! (aside from the injustice incurred by making her DNR in the first place!!) For instance - if I had a patient who is DNR and they start choking on a sandwich, of course I am going to do the Heimlich maneuver and get that sandwich out of their airway. I'm pretty sure choking on a sandwich was not how they were meant to go. In Graces case, all of those drugs she was given caused REVERSABLE respiratory depression that would have been remedied within minutes with a dose of naloxone. Drug addicts who overdose on the street are given naloxone - why did Grace not deserve the same? They 1000% overdosed your daughter. Shame on those doctors and nurses who allowed this to happen to your beautiful Grace. My prayers are with you as you navigate this journey making sense of her death and championing just and humane care in the hospital. I will continue to do what I can to advocate for the same. God bless you and all who are fighting for your cause :)
