Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Not Everyone in This Country is a Selfish Ignorant Prick

Every national public health agency in North America may have spectacularly failed this nation during the COVID pandemic, and let’s be clear: it can’t all be blamed on Washington.

But you know who didn’t fail the American people?

Those of us who work in your local ER. We have done everything possible to mitigate its effects, both with individual patients, as well as the communities we serve. We had zero guidance in the beginning, but our knowledge base has improved considerably. Contrary to what the American people think: you can die from it. I can’t count the number of people who died while in my care. I honestly have no idea. It was so traumatic it’s hard to think about.

But we care for every person who comes to our ER as if they were our loved ones, and we try to teach patients and their families the importance of quarantining and taking advantage of the free testing offered by the NYC Department of Health to try and control it in our communities.

And shame on every public figure – yeah, you know who you are – who downplays this like it’s nothing more than an inconvenience.

Not that you care – but history won’t judge you kindly. You people should be ashamed of yourselves.

Sorry, but I’ve had to get that off my chest.
