Due to hospital COVID policies, Mat-Su Regional Medical Center won’t allow family members or friends to visit with ailing patients. This has created heightened anxiety for friends and relatives whose only access to loved ones is limited to phone or video conferencing.

Like many hospitals in Alaska and around the nation, those wishing to visit a patient over age 18 are largely banned from doing so at Mat-Su Regional. There are exceptions for women giving birth and for those at the very end of life. Some allowances may also be permitted for patients with disabilities or special needs. These, however, are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, in accordance with current hospital policy.

For Mat-Su resident Cindy Hite, the inability to visit her husband has caused heightened tension with hospital nurses and staff.

Her husband Kevin Hite checked into Mat-Su Regional on Sept. 9 after struggling with COVID for five days. Cindy’s request that he be given Ivermectin was denied – a trend playing out across Alaska and much of the nation.

I am being denied access to my husband now,” she said. I’m not allowed to talk to him on the phone or Facetime him.

Instead, Kevin received remdesivir and steroid treatments. Within 10 days he was in the ICU and on a ventilator. He has since suffered from brain damage, according to Cindy, and two days ago she got to see him in person for one hour to approve a tracheotomy.

Cindy, who has power of attorney for her husband, acknowledges that she has had several heated conversations in which she yelled at nurses over the past week, much of it centering on her attempts to get more information about her husband’s deteriorating health or to set up Facetime visits.

On Oct. 14, Cindy said the hospital informed her that she would no longer be permitted to speak with Kevin on the phone or through video conferencing, unless he explicitly requested it. Complicating this arrangement is the fact that Kevin has limited ability to communicate and is occasionally under sedation. Additionally, nurses, who are with Keven 24/7 will no longer set up the online interactions. Now only the doctor, who sees him intermittently, will arrange these visits as time permits, Cindy said.

“He can’t move, and he can’t talk,” she noted. “But supposedly he is independent enough to tell them he wants to Facetime me?”

They become a hostage, a prisoner, being coerced into treatments they don’t want.

Previously, Cindy and Kevin’s extended family would Facetime for up to six hours at a time – maintaining at least some level of contact and interaction.

In a phone recording which Cindy shared with the Watchman, hospital staff tell her that, due to her past negative interactions with nurses and ICU staff, they would no longer provide health updates about her husband or arrange Facetime visits. That now has to go through Kevin’s doctor.

Multiple calls by the Watchman for comment from the hospital were never returned.

On Oct. 14, Cindy waited 12 hours before getting any information about her husband. Finally, she asked an Alaska State Trooper to call and check on his status. Late that night the hospital contacted her for an update.

“I am being denied access to my husband now,” she said. “I’m not allowed to talk to him on the phone or Facetime him. I’m not allowed to see him, period. I’m not allowed to speak to a nurse. I am only allowed to talk to a doctor when he calls me.”

This makes it extremely difficult to make medical decisions for her husband, she said.

“I’m his legal guardian,” Cindy explained. “I need to be able to evaluate him to make the appropriate decisions for him.”

She said the lack of access makes her feel like her husband is a prisoner.

“They become a hostage, a prisoner, being coerced into treatments they don’t want,” she said of patients who don’t have family advocates. “They’re in a COVID brain fog and can’t think for themselves and they have no one there who can help them make those decisions.”

It’s unclear how much longer Mat-Su Regional will maintain its current ban on visitations. While the Mat-Su Borough continues to have high case counts, COVID hospitalization have dropped significantly over the past two weeks. As of Oct. 16, the state’s COVID dashboard showed that the Mat-Su has had just three people hospitalize due to COVID in October with no deaths.

    The corporate medical establishment are violating the basic ethics and morals of practicing medicine.
    This evil, if not punished here, will be punished in the afterlife.
    This chinese flu mass hysteria will one day be looked at like the Salem witch trials.
    The Feds, FJB, MSM, and the corporate medical establishment are pushing people to far. There will be repurcussions…

      STATE OF ALASKA EMPLOYEE AFFIDAVIT – OATH OF OFFICE
      “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Alaska, and that I will faithfully discharge my duties as __________________ to the best of my ability.”
      The Alaska State Trooper has sworn to defend both the US and Alaska Constitutions in order to “secure and transmit to succeeding generations our heritage of political, civil, and religious LIBERTY within the Union of States.” This trooper failed to defend the wife whose inherent rights to liberty were being violated by the law-breaking hospital staff, who should be arrested. Policy does not trump the law. Uphold the Constitution!

  • G Aleution says:

    So you support active shooters…how very Christian of you. If you don’t like health care workers then why don’t you just treat yourself with all the “information” you find on Facebook. The rest of us who actually respect the people that are trying to stop the spread of a deadly disease won’t have to worry about you much longer. Just inject your self with bleach like Trump told you morons to do. But I’m sure the next time your health is at risk you will run like a scared little girl to the nearest “tyrant” so they can save your ass.

    • Common Peasant says:

      Look buddy.
      This whole Covid thing is a damn scam. A bioweapon released on the people from some very dark powers in China. There are some very BAD actors that are doing everything they can to brainwash you turn you into a corpse and profit the whole way, laughing.
      Our medical system is a damn joke. People aren’t living healthy so they do what ever is given to them just so they don’t have to take responsibility for themselves. Too many folk have become too damn depended on a system that does NOT heal people.
      If you do not have your health under YOUR control by now then you never will and are just a money bag waiting to be picked up.

      It is time for every to wake the hell up because China great ponzi scheme Evergrande is bearing its cracks and will soon come crashing down. If you have investments, seek clarity.

      As for the rest of you common folk bickering and snitchen. Sit down and shut up. Give the real MEN room to work when your fragile illusion comes crashing down all around you.

They don’t have the right to prevent a person from using there phone. Also, patients have the right to have the care they want – its their life not the hospital’s.

  • Steve+Peterson says:

    This god complex with hospitals is not new, but COVID has given it more power.
    Remember some years back when Providence would not let parents see their child nor release the child to them even though that child was healthy?
    I would do almost anything to not be hospitalized in this day and age. I’d rather die at home than die alone and unattended in a hospital. Especially since I am now a second class citizen as one of the unvaxxed.
    This is the logical extension of the medical community rejecting the Hippocratic Oath, which was a logical extension of saying that unborn babies are not human. They are now doing harm and justifying it “for the greater good”.

    • Greg says:

      Steve, I agree with you. Call it a “god complex”, or an inflated sense of infallibility, many in the medical field act as if they care more about you or your children than you do. I had an experience at one of the hospitals in Alaska after my wife gave birth to twins. They were healthy, yet at one point, a staff member wanted to run a “car seat test” to check their oxygen level to see if they could handle a ride home. We were told the twins “could not leave” until it was done. It was not suggested, it was not explained, just – “you cannot take your children.” Never mind that we have many older children. I calmly yet firmly showed my displeasure since someone was acting as if the hospital owned my children. One of the problems I had was that it was stated that some infants have trouble breathing in an inclined position, yet they wanted to run tests to where they put the babies in that position for a long period of time. They were subjecting our newborns to this position for a much longer time period than my wife ever would have. In a way, I felt like they were putting our babies at risk of unnecessary discomfort, at the least. Because I would not just give in to their demands, an older NP came to us and told us they could not “make” us do anything, that it was our choice. After speaking to her and having our concerns alleviated, we agreed, and everything was fine. Overall, my wife has never had a more unpleasant experience in child birth.

  • Concerned Citizen says:

    My question….since Ivermectin has been proven in India as a safe and effective treatment against COVID, why is it being so vilified and denied to people in the US? What exactly is the US system afraid of….something that is inexpensive working?

    • Elizabeth Henry says:

      Because still not FDA approved for that application. Hence hospital, tied to Medicaid and Medicare cannot touch it.

      • Patrocles says:

        Neither is Remdesivir or the Covid treatment but they give it out like candy. If Ivermectin is so inexpensive I would just pay for it myself, screw medicare and medicaid. The thing the US system is afraid of is big pharma losing billions in revenue not being able to sell their Ivermectin knock off.

      • Artie Jenkins says:

        The thing is that the FDA will go after the license of any doctor that prescribed it for covid. It has nothing to do with the fact that the FDA pres in 2019-20 is now the CEO of pfizer.

      • Julie says:

        Then pay for it yourself its cheap! By pass medicare and insurance by reaching into your pocket.
        Very cheap drug that’s been in use for over 40 years!

    • DoneWithIt says:

      3 reasons.
      1) if there are recognized therapeutics then the experimental gene therapies approved under EUA’s would have to be removed
      2) Ivermectin is cheap and no longer under a patent – no money to be made for BigPharma.
      3) This is mass hysteria generated by a propaganda campaign from the Feds and BigPharma and supported and propagated by the MSM for de-population and totalitarian control.

      • Julie says:

        Redmesivir is NOT FDA approved for covid either! I know as that is what was put into my body at matsu regional. Redmesivir is FDA approved for EBOLA but EUA for covid!
        This last June Ivermectin went from being considered negative to being deemed neutral by FDA.
        When hearing many positive reports about Ivermectin and people are begging for it, it’s their choice, remember, they die and the blood is on the hands of whatever hospital they are in!
        First do No harm!!

        Bingo!! We’ll said fellow pureblood

    • John says:

      remdesivir is deadly for covid treatment due to its effect of the kidnys along with fluid retention backing fluid up in the lungs dosent make sence for a respitory virus people should and do have the right to choose what type of care they receive its your life and it belongs to you its not surrendered when you walk in the door to mat-su regional

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    Here is a comprehensive pretty objective article on the various treatments emerging.
    https://www.vox.com/22219434/covid-19-drugs-treatment-monoclonal-antibodies-plasma-antiviral-regeneron-remdesivir
    There are numerous official studies now underway on Ivermectin for treatment of Covid. Unfortunately most hospitals with any tie at all to Medicaid and Medicare are bound by federal regulation in what they are legally allowed to administer, and FDA approval is a not debatable. This is awful but is bigger than Matsu Regional. The doctors, nurses and staff are exhausted, trying to hold it together, and are bound also by rules that come down from the corporate offices in Tennessee. Hence everyone needs to ‘chill out’ and extend a bit of grace, and also please educate yourselves.

    Whether vaccinated or not —- there are supplements commonly suggested you could be taking – D3 with K2 5k to 10k per day, zinc picolinate or citrate or combo around 15 mg, quercetin 500-800 mg, vitamin C – a lot! Always recommended to check with your doctor and know your own health when taking any supplements but this is my regime

    If you come down with Covid, the monoclonal antibody treatment should be administered in first 5-7 days to be most effective. There are a couple clinics in Anchorage and in the valley Lake Lucille Urgent care. This treatment is highly effective and now FDA approved. I suspect the reason the hospitals are not using the is that most patients being admitted are too far along in infection.

    I am adding the Hitte family to our prayers – the draconian measure of disallowing all family members is unnecessary.

We know and believe what we have seen personally. But, you just go on believing that it is nothing but “horse paste” and we will make sure no one tries to give it to you if you get the virus – yes the vaccinated also get the virus and even die from it.

The point of this list is not to provide valuable information, but to provide misinformation. This is the strategy of the radical right and its ally, Putin’s Russia.

      But regardless, here is the one useful fact you need to know:
      The vaccines work against Covid. They save lives.

  • Tamra+Nygaard says:

    Follow the money. Big Pharma makes money, and the kickbacks flow to the politicians, and hospitals are paid by the Government for every patient in the ICU, whether they live or die. If they die, that makes more room for the next payoff. It all comes down to corruption, brought on by removing liability, and perpetuated by the lies.

    • Fred Lee says:

      I’m curious. I’m trying to follow the money. Why do the drug makers who produce Ivermectin explicitly recommend *against* its use in treating Covid? What is their possible motivation for turning down the inevitable money that would come from that?

      • Common Peasant says:

        Blackrock & Vanguard
        These are 2 major companies that are shareholders of most companies world wide.
        Merck is the maker of Ivermectin. Ivermectin is very cheap to acquire. Merck has recently released information about a new drug they are producing to treat covid. This new drug will bring in much more profit for their masters, Blackrock and Vanguard.

      The hospital is trying to stop the spread of a deadly disease, and if its not that deadly as people on this site are saying, then whey are they complaining about not being able to see loved ones dying in the hospital. Stupid.

      • Lobo says:

        I find it interesting that there are still quite a few people lying about Trump’s “statement”.. BTW, hydroxychloroquine has been proven to be the most effective preventative, as well as post-treatment available, and the liberals/democrats “can’t breathe” when the treatment is recommended. The same muerte cerebral sheep can’t tell the difference deadly effects in the disease, and the preferred treatments being shoved down their throats… stupid.

      • Greg says:

        Jake: I count it an honor to be able to respond to an expert such as yourself. If you could humor a nothing such as myself for a moment, I would like to point out that contrary to whatever news sources you listen to, some of the items you listed are in fact prescribed by medical professionals. My parents and my in-laws live in two separate states. One a blue state and one a red state. Their doctors prescribed them some of the medications that you showed disdain for, and were told to avoid the Covid “vaccine” because they did not trust it.
        The virus, just as the flu, in conjunction with other underlying health issues can lead to a person’s demise. For that person, obviously it was catastrophic. On the other hand, a virus that has a 99% survivability rate can hardly be considered “deadly” on a percentage basis.
        Lastly, in case you are not aware, there are many documented examples of doctors, hospitals, the CDC, and the FDA getting it wrong on treatments and medications. The US healthcare system is atrocious, though its expenditures are through the roof. The infant mortality rate lags way behind about 50 other nations. (The World Fact Book). Prescription drugs / medical errors are considered to be the 3rd or 4th leading cause of death in the US. Don’t take my word for it, look it up. These are medications and procedures prescribed by doctors and carried out by hospital personnel. This is not a political issue, researchers from both sides of the political aisle agree. Many in the medical field do nothing but what pharma tells them to do. They wouldn’t know how to treat someone without toeing the pharma line. So get a clue, would you?

        I’m about 12 hours the turn around was dramatic. In less than a week he was back to normal.

    Public Health is Another Term for Marxism

    “Public health is the Marxist step-brother of the individualist field of medicine and generally unconcerned with an honest reading of available data. This moment in time makes that abundantly apparent.

    Public health offers collectivist plans to address health, which is an individual concept. The medical field is becoming increasingly affected by the same. However, at its core, the medical field is not collectivist. Doctors focus on the individual patient. This can be traced back to the 2,400-year-old Hippocratic Oath and other texts on medical ethics. The public health profession can trace its roots back to the late-1800s in England as ideologies intending to push a supposed collective will on others grew in popularity with some intellectuals.

    As such, every single pronouncement from anyone in public health should be given the same skepticism that you would offer a pronouncement from Karl Marx himself.”

    “Modern Medicine Is the Third Leading Cause of Death

    Doctors (not to mention drug companies) may bemoan the lack of trust and faith in their offerings, but you certainly cannot claim that it’s an undeserved trend. In 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield published a study revealing that doctors are in fact the third leading cause of death in the U.S., killing an estimated 225,000 patients annually. Her statistics showed that each year:

    12,000 die from unnecessary surgery
    7,000 die from medication errors in hospitals
    20,000 die from other errors in hospitals
    80,000 die from hospital-acquired infections
    106,000 die from the negative side effects of drugs taken as prescribed

    Unfortunately, few believed it, and no affirmative action was ever taken to address and correct the situation. So, when new data was published in 2016, showing the situation has only gotten worse, I for one was not surprised. The study, published in the BMJ, concluded that medical errors now kill an estimated 250,000 Americans each year — an increase of about 25,000 people annually from Starfield’s estimates — and these numbers may still be vastly underestimated as deaths occurring at home or in nursing homes were not included.

    Many media outlets, including The Washington Post, bore headlines saying medical errors are “now” the leading cause of death, but the truth is, modern medicine has been the third leading cause of death for at least two decades, that we know of. Research published in 2013 estimated that preventable hospital errors kill 210,000 Americans each year — a figure that is very close to the latest statistics.”

    You can see your loved one anytime you want. Just check them out of the hospital. The hospital they probably wouldn’t have been in if they had taken the vaccine.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Your all right don’t go to these woke hospitals.
    You would be better off with your own treatments. You don’t need a woke doctors to tell you what you can or cannot take.
    If you want to smoke, drink, or eat ice cream. You can do anything in your Own home.
    If you went to the hospital with a cut finger they will test you, wait you got covid.
    Write that down as another case, Stop with all the testing.
    People are fine what did PSE say it’s 99.74% survivable

    If I get a tattoo across my chest that days No hospital care or something to that effect, would it be legally binding? If I get into a car accident, and am unconscious I don’t want to end up in one if the death camps they Hospitals

  • G Aleutian says:

    This would not be a medical facility where I Would consent for any treatment. Thanks for info.

  • Burt says:

    If this happens to my wife, they’ll be dealing with a heavily armed and pissed off husband. As far as I’m concerned these hospitals have become nothing but Death Camps.

    • Concerned says:

      Same here. I’d even be up for teaming up with those like minded to help go in and recuse these victims. Nobody is going to get away with forcefully puling a loved one out of a hospital facility alone.

  • Burt says:

    Exactly!!!

    • Ain’t no sheep says:

      I’m confused… Don’t you guys worship the little fat orange baby? You realized Trump got vaccinated with Pfizer right?

      Lol. What a sheep that dude is. Am I right fellas?! Going to the hospital, getting treated by doctors. Taking all those big pharma treatments.

  • Patrocles says:

    Does anyone know which facilities in Anchorage WILL prescribe and administer Ivermectin or Hydroxycloriquine?

  • Ivermectin_Stock_Holder says:

    Please stay home. If you’re unvaccinated and disagree with the medical recommendations of the entire country why would you go to the hospital?

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      The vaccinated are the ones that need to stay home.
      So us unvaccinated can go about our lifes, we’re not Afraid the vaccinated are like little sheep

      • Ivermectin_Stock_Holder says:

        I meant stay away from the hospital. You guys can go take livestock medicine and call everyone sheep. I’m cool with that!

      • Jake from State Farm says:

        I love how people who respect the opinion of medical professionals are called sheep. I am sure all of the individuals on this site calling people sheep consider themselves the wolves…GRRRR!! What an apex predator you are with all of your Facebook friends and “facts” you have accumulated from them. None of the “thoughts” that you are repeating here are your own. The real fact is that you are all just sheep following a smaller, much dumber herd.

      • Greg says:

        Jake, in case you are not aware, there are many documented examples of doctors, hospitals, the CDC, and the FDA getting it wrong on treatments and medications. The US healthcare system is atrocious, though its expenditures are through the roof. The infant mortality rate lags way behind about 50 other nations. (The World Fact Book). Prescription drugs / medical errors are considered to be the 3rd or 4th leading cause of death in the US. Don’t take my word for it, look it up. These are medications and procedures prescribed by doctors and carried out by hospital personnel. This is not a political issue, researchers from both sides of the political aisle agree. Many in the medical field do nothing but what pharma tells them to do. They wouldn’t know how to treat someone without toeing the pharma line. So get a clue, would you?

  • Sean J Murphy says:

    Dalton Stokes, I would like to meet with you. If that is your real name. I hope you are not a coward like the rest not using their real name. We have taken a health issue and made it a political football. I blame a lot of people, but I blame the media or lack of media for the blunt of the problem. When you threaten to shoot medical staff, when people talk of hospitals as death camps, and continue to believe everything you hear on facebook I don’t know this America. Thought we had some decency, especially in the valley, but I was wrong. Burt if you want to threaten staff at that hospital, I take that personal. Do we need to protect our hospital? I am ashamed of you Alaska Watchman for your part in this. I am a conservative that actually promoted your site, but not now. Our medical field workers should have all of our support during this time. Look at policy and administration, more importantly look at your politicians that are creating more frenzy. Come on, we are better than this.

    • Burt says:

      Let’s Go Brandon! Sean you are just another brain washed retarded Commie. Move to North Korea Comrade Dumbass.

      • Evan+S+Singh says:

        So Burt; Sean only lamented the threat of violence focused on people who save our lives. Does that warrant your lack of civility?

      • Burt says:

        Go F yourself Comrade. You Commies are always being uncivil and then scream about civility. The time is coming where we will just need to rid ourselves of the Commie Scum.

    • Evan+S+Singh says:

      I’m with you Sean.

    • Jake from State Farm says:

      Sean, don’t worry too much about the Daltons and Burts of the world. Most of them sit in their mother’s basement, or some equally depressing place, stroking the guns they can’t afford to shoot, fantasizing about the day that society will collapse and give them and their firearms the respect and importance that they deserve. The truth is that they are cowards. The only thing they fear more than death is being put in prison, with the daily sexual assaults they would suffer at the hands of individuals of an “inferior” race. If either of them actually get sick they will run to the nearest doctor, whom they are trash talking now, begging to be treated.
      RIP Colin Powell.

      • Burt says:

        Sounds like you have prison experience Comrade Commie. Let’s Go Brandon! BTW you are a racists cuck.

      It’s called the 1st AMENDMENT!! The WATCHMAN is transparent and prints ALL points of view from their readers…which is what they are supposed to do. Do your own investigation…make up your own mind …allow others to do the same! That is America!

  • fedup says:

    I heard if you tell them your spouse needs a patient advocate, they will let you in. You can sue the hospital if they don’t allow a patient advocate.

    From some of the best researcher’s in the business:
    UPDATED CV19 RESEARCH RESULTS

    No, I’m not a doctor, or scientist, or microbiologist or nurse… but I know a lot of them and I have been researching this CV19 “pandemic” for weeks now and verifying all of my findings with a group of these friends, to make sure that what I post is indeed “factual.” Anyone who knows me personally will confirm that I am a very good researcher. I don’t stop until I know I have the facts.
    I have suspected this information for weeks now but have just verified those suspicions.

    1. CV19 is an elevated strain of SARS-CoV2… which has been in the USA since 2003. This is why people had it even before news of the Wuhan Flu released in early January 2020.
    2. From the CDC – “Corona-viruses are a large family of viruses that are known to cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).”
    3. Since 2003, these viruses have been added to your FLU vaccines. Most people who do NOT test positive today, are people who did NOT take any flu vaccines since at least 2003.
    4. Most people who have had a flu vaccination since 2003 WILL test positive for CV19 today, even though there isn’t a CV19 specific test yet. The “coronavirus” in your system is “dormant” if you are “asymptomatic.”
    5. There are TWO Coronavirus tests, the swab test, which is designed to confirm the presence of SARS-CoV2, which scientists believe to be the foundation for the CV19 strain. When you test positive using this test, you are testing positive for SARS-CoV2…. which has been in the Flu Vaccine since 2003. – The antibodies blood test is looking for proof that your body is or has built immunity antibodies to the virus, again, not CV19 specifically, SARS-CoV2.
    6. If your body does NOT confirm antibody build up, then Coronavirus is NOT in your system. If you test positive for antibodies to Coronavirus, and you are asymptomatic, then your immune system has already built a defense to these viruses.
    7. Because the air-born Coronavirus droplet can be 1/4 the size of droplets captured by any of the masks people are wearing, none of the masks are effective against passage of this disease. (From Mayo Clinic Reports.)

    So, due to vaccinations since 2003, almost every person who has had a flu vaccine will test positive for CV19 (actually SARS-CoV2) via a swab test. It does NOT mean you have CV19.

    If you are asymptomatic, you are NOT sick.

    Last, how many times in your life have you been told that YOU ARE SICK but NOT contagious? What was the determining factor in making that medical decision?

    A fever was the determining factor, which is why medical facilities check your temperature on entry and do not require you to wear a mask in most facilities, if you are not running a fever.

    I encourage everyone to CHECK MY FACTS for yourself. But we CANNOT rely on any politically motivated “fact-checkers” in that process.

    You can’t fight what you don’t know… so, why am I forced to tell you this information? Why isn’t this information common knowledge?

    I too had a similar experience such as Greg’s post re child birth
    My son and his wife had a baby at Prov. In Los Anchorage
    It was the same exact story as you said Greg. They said trouble breathing. Did the car seat test. Kept the kid for almost two weeks! The parents both stayed with the kid. We brought the parents snacks and clothes since they were only allowed to leave the hospital one time per day

  • Guns don’t kill people, idiots with the internet and guns do. says:

    Independent research is luckily pretty easy since the advent of Google. As with most elderly people, I would like to introduce you to “snopes.com”. Every time you hear a crazy story from a maladjusted friend, just type it in and they will help you do the research. That will help you realize that the rumor you just posted came from some guy selling anti-aging pills and chelation therapy. If you think those are good, I have some snake oil that would surely cure that gout of yours big fella!

    If opening that website becomes too cumbersome, you can merely search “covid-19 PCR specificity”. That’s what the science dorks use to valid a test that it doesn’t give you a false positive. It approaches 100%.

    I’m sure there is more crazy up there that I missed (like hospitals not requiring a mask if you don’t have a fever ) but if you can learn to google just one thing before spreading it, I’ll feel like I can sleep peacefully tonight.

  • Buford Pusser says:

    The article sounds like maybe our “Medical Hero’s” aren’t acting like such caring people after all
    Sounds like the lady pissed off the nursing staff and they are getting even with her by making it difficult to FaceTime
    I was a frontline medical worker up here for almost 30 years. If patient’s were mean to me they definitely got treated differently
    Don’t forget we are all people and generally behave similarly.There’s not that many Mother Theresa’s working the medical profession!! It’s just a job someone does to put food on the table. Don’t be fooled

  • Jane Alaska says:

    “With only 5% of Uttar Pradesh’s 230 million people vaccinated, early treatment home kits wiped out an outbreak of COVID-19 dropping cases by 99% in three weeks.

    What was in the home kits❓

    Tylenol, Vitamin C, Multivitamin, Zinc, Vitamin D3, Ivermectin 12 mg [10 tablets], Doxycycline 100 mg [10 tablets].

    The home kits cost less than $3 per person and brought the number of active cases to below 200.

    This is remarkable considering the province had more than 310,000 active cases during the peak of its COVID outbreak.

    In comparison, one course of Remdisivir cost $3,100 and is the standard of care in many US hospital systems even though the WHO has recommended against its use and meta-analysis studies have shown that it is ineffective against COVID-19.”

  • G Aleutian says:

    Oh how ironic. Excellent doctors with impeccable credentials and good outcomes are trying like heck to get certified in Alaska. No dice, no way Jose. It’s like there is an impenetrable iron wall around Alaska. What’s up with that? It makes Alaska a wonderful place to visit and nearly impossible place to “live”. You’ve got to be “in the club”. Very anti-Constitutional, treasonous professional society. Amazing.

    I am thankful to hear that administration stepped in to protect their employees from the frequent verbal assault, borderline stalking, and threats. It’s great they found a way to maintain the flow of information without negatively impacting their staff and the patients they’re taking care of.

    She phoned the police because she hasn’t heard in 12 hours? 12 hours. Do you understand how busy ICUs are these days in 12 hrs? There are staff who can’t sit long enough to eat during their 12 hrs. There are doctors staying upwards of 4 hours after their shift has ended to catch up on phone calls and paperwork because they couldn’t sit long enough to do them during the day.

    She wouldn’t ask them to leave her husband if he were actively dying to speak to another family for hours on end – why should they be expected to leave other dying patients to answer the 17596070 calls she places? Patient care comes first. Communication is important – but the PATIENTS come first.
