Lost amid all the insurrection news is the fact that thousands are still dying every single day from the Trump virus

I feel this in my bones. I've got a livestreamed funeral to "attend" tomorrow for someone I worked with.

That's not just any CNN reporter, that's Sara Sidner. During the George Floyd protests in Minneapolis this woman had more balls than I do as a man and barely flinched walking the streets of Minneapolis as gunfire, explosions, asshole cops pressing on, and all sorts of awful shiat was going down around her  and continued to tell the story.. I earned a shiat ton of respect of her work during the Minneapolis shiat show..

At this point I'm numb.

Unfortunately the plague rats who need to see this will respond - "Fake news! CNN!" Even as people close to them are dying.

Also, as an EMT, and someone planning on attending nursing school.

Watch that again.. WATCH IT.. That's just a lone journalist getting access to what most don't get to see and she's losing her shiat.. Rightfully so.

So now imagine your frontline workers, EMS, Paramedics, Nurses, Doctors, LPNS, Tech who literally have to see this bullshiat 40hrs.....  lol. 40hrs.. Healthcare providers are in a dire shortage.. Make that 60hrs or more to make up for it.. And there are still Ken/Karens out there who think "we're in on it"

Please.. Tell every single denier to go fark themselves... They've earned it..

I'm in the hospital right now. I'm in the cardiac wing, and they wouldn't admit me to the ward without a clear COVID test. In the infectious disease wards...it's not a shame, it's pure triage.

One of my neighbors told me the lockdown extensions in California was "The government just punishing us for the Capitol attack".

And this is in the Bay Area, where people are supposedly all liberal and enlightened. Can't even imagine what it's like in the red states right now.

I'm always at a loss as to what to say when I read or hear something like that.  Let me just be straight: I owe you for The Goddamn Gallows, and so I'm on your side.  I can't actually help, which bugs me.  But probably not as much as it bugs you that whatever help you need isn't being provided.

Fine.  I will express the hope that you get the help you need, and that you come out all right.  Being in a hospital in pandemic times needs a serious reason, and evidently you have one.  Not good; but I genuinely do hope things get better for you.  Check in as you can.

because death that doesn't affect them personally is okay to them

I fully expect contact tracing will eventually point to more 'rona deaths from the January 6th insurrection at the capitol than lives lost in the 9/11 attacks. Sadly many of those deaths will be collateral damage rather than insurrectionists themselves meeting the fate they deserve.

Still no Contact Tracing data. People might see how Covid is mainly targeting Hispanics and people of color. Trump and his right wing Christians call it a hoax.

I guess a weaponized virus is a little more subtle than gas chambers.

I worked in what was  originally the covid unit at my hospital.

Two weeks ago I had a shift where I got to wheel 9 people to the morgue. I went home and out of nowhere fell apart in my driveway. I tried to quit but they left me on PRN - I'm applying at a nursing home. I can't anymore.

The worst part is they're hiring baby nurses just out of school and throwing them into this.

Not that there's a choice, but despite the pay theres a generation of medical staff that will leave the field or just be ruined by this. Experienced RNs are a finite resource, they're the NCOs of the hospital. They re getting used up.

I live in Butte County. Half the people wander around without masks and the farking schools are STILL open. Goddamit.
 
2021-01-12 10:34:27 PM  
I've only had one patient that really got to me these last few weeks. This poor little old lady, too weak to stand and struggling to breathe. She was trying so hard to be stoic, but you could tell she was absolutely terrified. She didn't get admitted to ICU, which was a good sign, so I'm hoping when she was discharged it was to home and not the morgue.

Or, y'know, state governors, who are the real responsibility bearers for what happens in each state.  Trump could go on and on about setting out the National Guard, and it won't mean squat if the governors won't allow it.  Face it, this is on Newsom.

Holy shiat.  So sorry to hear you've been going through all this.  That's truly saddening...

Thank you for doing that. And I hope you get to where you want to work. 

Your insight re: the newbies and the future... shudder to think. But, then again... maybe the Boomers will have dwindled significantly and the perfect storm of their generation and our nursing shortage won't be horrific.  And the sky is purple...

Thanks for everything you've done, Itchy. I hope you get a chance to do some self care. Traumatic situations can really get inside your head, I think a lot of us around here have firsthand experience. I really hope you can find your passion again. This world would stop without nurses like you.

OldRod: Lost amid all the insurrection news is the fact that thousands are still dying every single day from the Trump virus


This. Roughly a thousand more people a day than died on 9/11 are dying every single day, just from a virus that Donald Trump and his cultists refused to even try and control. Donald Trump and the Republican Party have killed more Americans than any combat, and are creeping up on World War 2 in terms of total deaths, combat or otherwise.

We've been saying it for years: The Republican party is the single greatest threat that America has ever faced, bar none. And the longer we fail to act, the more extreme we'll have to get to fix the problem. Right now? use the 14th Amendment to eject every Republican from government, because by being part of the Republican Party, they "shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against [the Constitution of the United States], or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.". Then RICO the whole group and lock them the fark up like the criminals they are.

Unlikely. To admit they participated would put them in potential legal jeopardy. That and they are Trumpers who DGAF and who want more people to die.

Some of us tried to warn you in farking February.  And were told we were hysterical loons who didn't know what we were talking about, bullied online and IRL, dismissed by strangers, friends, and family.  That this was "just the flu."

And here we are.

"Just the flu" will go down as the stupidest, most destructive thing the WH has ever said.

We are long overdue for coming to terms with hard, early triaging ... and telling plague rat assholes to go home and die drowning in their own phlegm.

Never let Trump, his admin, his enablers, his supporters, or his 2020 voters escape their responsibility for all of this.  They are ALL liable for all of this.

Good luck, Farkers.  If we're very, very lucky, we might be coming near to the end of the beginning.  Stay safe.  Or... as safe as you can at this point.  Gonna be a lonnnng winter.

Good luck, most of all, healthcare pros - take care of _yourselves_.  They don't do a good job of teaching you how to do that... but we rarely throw you away entirely like we have this past year.

Thanks, MAGAts.  Thanks a farking ton.

I just saw my local hospital more that doubled the beds, partially by remodeling parts of clinics.  62% of all new patients are covid related.

Hell, even if it was just the flu (I realize covid is deadlier and spreads more) who wants the flu?  What kind of dumbass wants to catch the flu? Especially when wearing a mask is a simple easy way to make it less likely all around.  Basic lack of respect for your fellow humans at little cost.
