The Bias-ness of our COVID Treatment in Our COVID Era

When it comes to patient care in the Era of COVID, it becomes a proverbial coin toss of the kind of treatment you care for.  1.  Based on the facility, you are sent to a COVID infection.  2.  Based on if you have insurance or not.  3.  If it’s private or a government ran insurance.  4.  What intention the staff member handling your care is.  5.  The executive orders from caseworkers.  And finally, 6.  The idealisms of the administration feels about specific demographics infected with COVID.

Consideration is something that we all expect in today’s society.  One of the truths that we all have come to accept is that no one cares.  We develop these expectations that we all know secretly will not get and accept it as truth, so we tend to pick and choose our battles and settle with the mistreatment we are degraded to.  Which is typical situations, it’s okay, but when it comes to the health and livelihood of others.  Becomes those in the medical field profession determine who deserves to live and who deserves to die.  It becomes the unethical act of playing God, where the administration staff determines in their high castles.  Which many of them may not even know about sometimes.  As some of these decisions are made on the front lines.  Those who don’t have a personal connection with patience or think someone is beneath them determine if they choose to live in the end.  Based on the staff member’s unique feeling, entitlement may put more at risk, including their staff members.  Leaving those at the bottom of the totem pole jeopardizing their lives over theirs.  When it comes to patient care in the Era of COVID, it becomes a proverbial coin toss of the kind of treatment you care for.  1.  Based on the facility, you are sent to a COVID infection.  2.  Based on if you have insurance or not.  3.  If it’s private or a government ran insurance.  4.  What intention the staff member handling your care is.  5.  The executive orders from caseworkers.  And finally, 6.  The idealisms of the administration feels about specific demographics infected with COVID. 

aumas they have gone through while working at the COVID unit.  As many of them go underpaid, undermined, and forgotten.  Many of these frontline workers work these units as due diligence to help society in the time needed.  Some in hysteria believe like many others based on political views>  Think that it’s not a real thing.  And that it’s a ploy to make money. 

Frieda Lopez- The Bias-ness of our COVID Treatment in Our COVID Era

One of the reasons I left Med School ages ago was due to the politics in the administration.  Based on the department and the leader running it, it might end up having you work for a horrible boss in what should be a respected and valuable profession.  Attempting to go back as a Clinical Psychologist has me researching the school, I choose to go to while trying to gain my graduate in the field, has me doing research.  I am selecting the Psychology realm because I empathize and understand the motives that I feel the start of good, get swayed by the reasons that come from unresolved issues.  I wasn’t writing to point fingers and fault anyone for the way things have been handled, in all honesty.  I decided to write this blog to help those in the front lines deal with the emotional traumas they have gone through while working at the COVID unit.  As many of them go underpaid, undermined, and forgotten.  Many of these frontline workers work these units as due diligence to help society in the time needed.  Some in hysteria believe like many others based on political views>  Think that it’s not a real thing.  And that it’s a ploy to make money.  While some of these are traveling nurses or staff who do this for a financial incentive are great nurses, some believe this builds resentment as working long hours and being unappreciated disregard the patience feelings and become numb to the suffering of many of those patients.  Which in this story, only four hours into their new shift in the COVID unit lost a patient the first four hours as the nurses on the floor deemed that patient as “overdramatic,” Which was pointed out, the average response time in this existing facility was about fifteen to twenty minutes.  Some were out of fear as they bickered back and forth.   Who was on call to go into the infected patient room.  A standard protocol is sending a tech into the space to help the patient—still being a fifteen to twenty minute response time when the tech determined that the patient was in critical need of help—some of those doctors and nurses communicated through the glass partition. At the same time, those who were just made to aid risked their valves.  All in the act of belittling someone else’s livelihood, using the same common excuses as to why they are exempt from that task and why someone else isn’t.  The idealism of leaving your personal feelings at the door is also something that the medical field still hasn’t mastered.

One of the most touching accounts was that a few of these nurses would volunteer to clean the bodies just so they could have more time to speak with an already dead patient, which many staff members would poke fun at them for doing in their eyes, “ridiculous acts.” Many would also put the bible verses on the glass partitions as a “last word” to the patient.

 Remind you.  Considering privacy is vital, everyone will remain anonymous.  One of the nurses who no longer works in the medical field showed me a video of what happens in the COVID units.  Which the loss of her mother was enough tragedy to have her leave the area entirely. They identify who honestly had the best interest of the patient and those who were just doing their job.  Although this person no longer works in the field will remain anonymous, everyone’s identity will be guarded. It’s no place to reveal their identities as the fear of retaliation is massive fear in this Era of COVID.  With many of them not knowing how to make things right.  Many of these nurses admitted that their emotional and mental health.  Had been affected as many of these nurses and staff have gone into rooms crying.  Many of them want to spend more time with the dying patient and get pulled away to handle other patience as many of these patients die alone.  One of the most touching accounts was that a few of these nurses would volunteer to clean the bodies just so they could have more time to speak with an already dead patient, which many staff members would poke fun at them for doing in their eyes, “ridiculous acts.” Many would also put the bible verses on the glass partitions as a “last word” to the patient.  To let the patient know that even though they couldn’t be physically there, someone is still thinking about them.  In the official blog, I will share a touching photo that a staff member took, holding the patience hand in the final moment of their life, which made me break down. 

Recalling the Pre-COVID era, I recognized some of the injustices that were going on before then.  This much low income or undermined patients are given medical jargon, which I, for a long time, believed to be done on purpose so the patient can say yes, something to no longer choose to fight.  A hypothetical psychological manipulation so that the patient can agree not to fight to burden the hospital staff in ill-intended staff members.

  Recalling the Pre-COVID era, I recognized some of the injustices that were going on before then.  This much low income or undermined patients are given medical jargon, which I, for a long time, believed to be done on purpose so the patient can say yes, something to no longer choose to fight.  A hypothetical psychological manipulation so that the patient can agree not to fight to burden the hospital staff in ill-intended staff members.  Another account confirmed this by a lifelong friend who worked as a transporter and confirmed again in these cases.  Where retaliation is the critical indicator that those staff members who have the patient’s best interest at hand are turned down.  Where threats follow after the case and the mistreatment of those workers, understanding that it’s hard to get work at this time is why many of them keep their mouths shut.  In this blog, I hope to get more stories to change; that is, I feel corruption initially never meditated.  Simultaneously, especially in this era,  it seems that this is more common than we anticipated.  As the fear of losing livelihood is something that everyone is afraid of.  However, one thing that many of these nurses and staff members that are local have indicated.  Many of them have not seen any COVID paid made as COVID relief that doing my research is given to these Medical Institutions directly.  Which begs the question, are these institutions pocketing this excess money?  As those Property Management Companies did during FEMA relief during Katrina.  Which relation and my Erin Brockovich intuition had my apartment complex shut down.  As retaliation against residence was a common practice, the complex engaged in.

 I disagree with this media reporting as this is the “third wave” when we are indeed in the “second wave.” Showing the bias and the personal feeling they have against our President in the motive of making him look bad.  Which truth is I am not a Trump supporter.  But I am point-blank about the principal of the matter.

 Understanding that we are attempting to find the solutions in a situation that we don’t understand, I get a room for error.  However, determining if someone lives and dies based on a personal decision is not an error. It’s a choice.  As many of the subjective biases that occur in these protocols.  Where another unethical option is the misreporting of deaths that occur.  As many of them also experience is the death toll reported based on the statistics government officials provide.  Which the catch twenty-two that develops from that.  It makes the general public believe that this is the case.  Where almost 50% of those in the unit has died.  Looking at the coverage, thinking to themselves, “That’s a damn lie.” Which is an interview conducted with one via FaceTime, blamed media for the false coverage.  Where Statistics 101 will tell you it’s the bias numbers given by those releasing the information.  I disagree with this media reporting as this is the “third wave” when we are indeed in the “second wave.” Showing the bias and the personal feeling they have against our President in the motive of making him look bad.  Which truth is I am not a Trump supporter.  But I am point-blank about the principal of the matter.  As the morale and the ethics of doing this intentionally is wrong.   Because it’s things like that which cause panic.  

In a recent situation, I found out an acquaintance committed suicide as he felt the guilt of finding out his close friends family all died from COVID.  He persuaded in a bar they met to have him not wear a mask as it’s a hoax.

 People are already under the impression this is a political vendetta to jeopardize or persuade the public on why you should vote Democrat, which is not the purpose of this blog.  I can give two shits about the political parties writing this blog as it’s more informative to let you know what is going on in the medical industry and why you should take precautions.  As many of us in the real world are already struggling to make it.  Adding an illness to the mix just makes things grimmer than what they look at, which is why I wrote this as an intro to next week’s real blog.  I hope I can get more accounts of the things that happen.  It keeps the public informed and helps those medical staff working those units, closer and peace as they have so much grief using these units.  Many are already giving up and wondering, “Why to bother” when the public thinks they know better—not wearing masks—putting themselves at risk.  Infecting other people thinking it’s a hoax.  Seeing the videos and seeing what happens in these units and how those families suffer breaks my heart.  Those who have been infected by this still engage in anti-social behavior as a retaliatory act. They see that it’s Democratic request that asks for these masks, using gaslighting and bandwagoning to affect others’ decisions and have blood on their hands living in denial.  In a recent situation, I found out an acquaintance committed suicide as he felt the guilt of finding out his close friends family all died from COVID.  He persuaded in a bar they met to have him not wear a mask as it’s a hoax.  Which also happens to those who don’t believe that in the medical field.  As before, the mandate to wear mask the third week of March came in.  Those with pre-existing conditions were forced to get a doctor’s note while passing the hall on a coded floor with colored tape on the door panels to determine to identify those who had COVID and those who did.t   As before the pandemic was confirmed, many worked in fear for their livelihood and their lives. 

Which biology news confirming that the virus now hijacks the brain, all have confirmed that one of the systems that occur in several COVID infected patients is mental instability.  As those who are fine one day end up reaching a hysteria within 24 hours.  Which also commonly has a patient being fine one day.  And you were then dying the next within the 24 hours.

To those who believe it’s a hoax.  To each is own.  I wish you the best beforehand, hoping that you don’t get this constantly mutating virus as we enter the second wave.  Which biology news confirming that the virus now hijacks the brain, all have confirmed that one of the systems that occur in several COVID infected patients is mental instability.  As those who are fine one day end up reaching a hysteria within 24 hours.  Which also commonly has a patient being fine one day.  And you were then dying the next within the 24 hours.  As COVID, as we learn more about this affects those based on genetic makeup.  Having almost 70% of COVID patients that are male, dying of the disease.  Which it’s your life; you do what you want to do.  But those who are on the fence.  Maybe the blog that saves your life  As many of those things that we doubted but still went with might have going more with your instinct than what’s told to you.  And if contracted, many who give up are more crucial to die.  This makes me wonder if the reason why it hijacks the brain is to manipulate your thoughts like a mind-controlling parasite would do, which many don’t even know that these things exist or want to believe that this is fiction.  A minor when I took that pre-med venture in microbiology showed that these parasites do live.  As one ameba in Lake Jackson eats the brain when it enters your body.  Which many ask me if I feel that it’s was a population control scenario that went bad.  I don’t think that climate change is more dangerous than we imagined.  Opening Pandora’s Box to ancient parasites (one already found in Brazil) and causing genetic mutation as the ozone depletes.  As more radioactive rays enter the Earth’s atmosphere than before. It is pushing some of these microorganisms to evolve.  Some are coming in through water droplets with the arrival of hurricanes, which hope for change is crucial even more so at this time of need as there is hope for the human population.  I know there is.  But that determination depends on people like us.  The motivation to get out of poverty seems like a pipe dream, even more so with this pandemic.  Makes one ask, “Will I ever be well off?” And in the pursuit of that?  Are you willing to risk your health and livelihood, along with the livelihood of those you love?  That is a personal question one needs to determine.
