Surviving Families Strike Back for Loved Ones Lost in Hospital Without Shared Decision Making

The two principles of medical ethics that all physicians, nurses, administrators, and patients understood before the COVID-19 crisis were: 1) patient autonomy and 2) informed consent.

When these two principles were upheld as they always were, families and patients routinely participate in a time-honored practice of shared decision-making on diagnostic and therapeutic management.1 Since the patient and or their insurance company is paying the hospital bills, these processes of care made the system move along for millions of Americans who are hospitalized every year.

With the COVID-19 pandemic and the declaration that the US government would pay for hospitalizations as an emergency countermeasure, there were sweeping changes and immediate dissolution of the principles of medical ethics as they apply to those under duress. Loss of autonomy was seen with the practice of isolation; patients were not given choices on what happens to their bodies, and even worse, once semi-conscious, or on the mechanical ventilator, they lost all control over what happened to their bodies. 

Informed consent was lost with EUA products, most notably remdesivir, the failed viral polymerase inhibitor. Hospitals and doctors failed to inform patients that the WHO, after completing the largest clinical trial of remdesivir, declared the drug should not be used in acutely hospitalized patients with COVID-19 since it did not lead to a reduction in mortality. It could complicate care or contribute to death through the mechanisms of acute kidney injury and hepatic damage.2

Despite this warning, the NIH and hospital protocols featured remdesivir in conjunction with hospital bonuses on payment from HHS. As a result, the majority of a million Americans lost their lives to COVID-19, most in the hospital, putting the totality of in-hospital care up to the tests of autonomy, informed consent, and shared decision-making.

Did the patients and families feel all of these rights were fulfilled, and patients received the maximum treatment possible? Sadly, many families feel none of these tenants were satisfied, and to that end, the first class-action lawsuit has been filed in California.

Dr. Lee Vliet of Truth For Health Foundation: “Attorneys Dan Watkins and Michael Hamilton announced in a national Press Conference September 7 the filing of their first-in-the-nation landmark lawsuit against three hospitals on behalf of families who had lost their loved ones with the “bounties” paid to hospitals for using the toxic combination of food and fluid restriction, remdesivir, mechanical ventilation, high dose morphine-midazolam respiration-suppressing cocktail to spiral patients down the dark road to death.

After more than 2 ½ years of daily COVID deaths in America’s hospitals, we finally have the first two attorneys in the US to take legal action boldly and courageously against three hospitals in Fresno, California, for wrongful death, medical battery, elder abuse, and other violations of patients’ rights to hold these hospital administrators, doctors, and nurse accountable for such horrific patient abuses.”3

This week, we have a wonderful show that summarizes news events over August and September, including contributions from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, California Surgeon Scot Youngblood, MD, and Dr. McCullough’s speech on stage in Fresno, CA.4,5,6,7 This week’s music selection comes from Rachel Trotto and is “Progress” by country star John Rich.8

Controversial Bill Would Allow Prisoners to Donate Organs for Reduced Sentences

Controversial Bill Would Allow Prisoners to Donate Organs for Reduced Sentences

The National Organ Transplant Act, passed in 1984, criminalizes giving or receiving any human organs for “valuable consideration.” Medical ethicists contend the program would put a literal price on freedom and, even while voluntary, would prove inherently coercive in practice. So what do you think? Good idea to let prisoners receive reduced sentences by donating their organs, or bad idea?

Molnupiravir (Lagevrio) made by Merck is Driving Mutations of the COVID Virus

Molnupiravir (Lagevrio) made by Merck is Driving Mutations of the COVID Virus

Dr. Paul Alexander Liberty Hour – If you have ‘silent’ undiagnosed COVID vaccine-caused myocarditis, and you engage in activity or some activity that drives increased adrenaline, the evidence indicates that this adrenaline (catecholamines) can stress the heart that is already damaged, and this can cause the heart to behave abnormally and can lead to death…

A Cure Worse than the Disease; Historic COVID Death Crossover

A Cure Worse than the Disease; Historic COVID Death Crossover

The so-called cure has turned into something worse than the disease. This message is inevitably difficult for many people to accept. How could this happen? How could the majority of physicians be willing participants in this awful tragedy? They keep pushing COVID vaccines even though substantial medical research has shown the mRNA vaccines to be both ineffective and unsafe…

“Look, Boss, The Balloon, The Balloon;” America is in the Hands of Complete Nincompoops

Inadvertently or not, exposing government stupidity to the sunshine of common sense, i.e., the failure publicly to make a decision about what to do about that damn balloon, only contributes further to the Americans’ loss of confidence in our federal government’s ability to protect us, this time it’s the Dept. of Defense, led by a retired affirmative action general…

Help Us and Support Arizona SB 1250 to Protect Healthcare Workers from Coerced Vaccine Mandates

Nurses Out Loud with Jodi O’Malley MSN, RN – As it stands now, health workers at Medicare and Medicaid-certified facilities are required to have at least their first dose in a primary series of coronavirus vaccinations in order to provide care, treatment, or services. What sense does this make when they’re not considered fully injected, and we know the injection is a failed experiment that doesn’t stop transmission or infection?

Arizona Corruption, Katie Hobbs Belongs in Jail

Arizona Corruption, Katie Hobbs Belongs in Jail

The Tom Renz Show – If we the people, don’t stand up to this, we can kiss our elections goodbye; our votes will never count. This election was stolen, and the evidence is as clear as day. The lower Court’s rulings in Arizona were so egregiously wrong in all three election cases that they border on unethical, in my opinion. Kari Lake’s case is one of the strongest election cases…

My Journey to Jesus – Life in the Dig Pit

I was not particularly mad at the kid. He’d simply made a mistake. But at the same time, it was a mistake that had very nearly cost another young soldier his life, so it was a mistake this young man needed to learn from. I started giving him a very stern talking to, when all of a sudden, the kid reached into a pocket, and very flippantly hands me a…

When the Mind Becomes Numb to Death

Several sources of data emerged in 2021, pointing to a biopharmaceutical public health disaster with the COVID-19 vaccine campaign. Pfizer recorded 1223 deaths occurring shortly after administration of their product within the first 90 days of use starting December 10, 2020. Pantazatos and Seligmann reported an excess in all-cause mortality from…

1000 Widows and There Are Thousands More in Covid’s Wake

Nurses Out Loud with Jodi O’Malley MSN, RN – What has transpired and continues to this day, is the malfeasance, negligence, and violations of the oath and ethical principles healthcare workers take. Aggrieved widows are demanding answers… Who issued these protocols that every single hospital system in the country implemented overnight, and how do we hold them accountable?
