The Augusta hospital that came under fire for offering early coronavirus vaccines to donors last month had been cited by the state earlier in January for violating COVID-19 prevention protocols.

Great going guys. Favoritism for donors, side helping of COVID for everyone else.

On Jan. 4, inspectors observed six of 22 employees use a staff entrance into the emergency department without going through screening, which the hospital said workers can do either with cellphones or at a computer station in the building. At the emergency room's main entrance, inspectors saw one of three staffers enter without going through required symptom screening.

Well it's a hospital after all. It's not like there are going to be sick or vulnerable people in there.

When inspectors asked a surgeon how he performed his symptom screening, he replied, "No one has stopped me in months, so I don't know." Asked whom he would send his screening to to receive clearance to work, he said, "I don't. I don't have a supervisor."

Someone takes "You're not the boss of me" really close to heart.

Keep it up. I really like working from home and not leaving the house, jerks.

The staff in our medical facility are screened and given masks. We have screeners in three staff entrances and screeners in both garage level entries. Supervisors keeps tabs on everyone in all departments. A problem nurse tried to ignore security and screeners. She was later fired. It's bad enough we have to deal with the handful of anti-masker patients coming in for their appointments.
I shake my head when a medical professional feels like they are being inconvenienced for a moment to be screened.

I volunteer at a large hospital and staff is not screened. Just show your badge and you can bypass the checkpoint. They expect team members who aren't feeling well to stay home.

You don't know the half of it.  Children's hospitals were not screening visiting parents because they didn't want to isolate the parents from children after children had  procedures.  It's a calculated risk at best.

This isn't surprising.  It is Augusta.

And put Republicans directly in charge of health care in roughly 75% of the country? *shudder*
