They weren't overrun. They weren't doing outpatient surgeries and procedures because they were reserving space for covid patients who never came. Case in point the hospital ships trump sent to NYC and LA that weren't used

chickeninoven 61 points ago +61 / -0

You know why they were reserving space? Because the gubmint was paying them fat checks for every "COVID" patient admitted, that's why.

AZ-is-the-key 58 points ago +58 / -0

Yep and paid them more to put them on ventilators and even more if they died. It was a "turn people into corpses for cash" program

Posted this the other day on a similar thread:

This is something that irritates the fuck out of me that is consistently posted here over and over. Nobody here actually understands the shitty billing system our health infrastructure uses. That reimbursement is drops in the bucket compared to what is actually necessary for a covid patient and is absolutely not at all driving hospitals to intubate instead of do something else. There are millions of other things that can and will be charged for even if a patient never hits a vent.

The amount of money a hospital gets for a covid admission and subsequent intubation for vent support is absolute pennies compared to the GARGANTUAN sum that can be charged for literally anything and everything else. The only one that would actually make sense would be patients being admitted for covid but do not actually require hospitalization (stable O2 on room air, admit for a day or two then send him) which I have personally seen and have had many people report for fraud.

As an example of some of those charges, an arterial line (special IV that goes in your artery to measure blood pressure in real time) is charged for daily while in place.

Being ICU level of care alone is a $4,000+ daily "room and board" charge.

Heated high flow nasal cannula or optiflow is a daily charge.

Bipap is a daily charge.

CRRT (continuous dialysis) is a daily charge.

Nitric is a daily charge.

All meds are charged per dispensed dose.

You can be on CRRT, BIPAP, have an art line, and high flow/optiflow, while being on continuous pressers all at the same time. Honestly, this is probably the better revenue stream because the amount of resources and shit required for a patient to stay off a vent is absolutely stupid.

The last time I looked up the running bill of a covid patient, they were at 2.1 million dollars after being in the ICU for 90+ days.

For comparison with critical noncovid patients, a neurosurgery patient requiring similar interventions as above (no covid) who's been on the unit for 100+ days now has a 2.8 million dollar bill.

I looked up a covid patient who has been on my unit for about 20 days and has never seen a vent, his bill is currently roughly $400,000.

The reason this change was made was because insurance and Medicare/medicaid reimbursement is HEAVILY weighted towards surgical procedures and testing, especially elective. Medical patients (which would be covid patients) don't reimburse for shit. When they shut everything elective down, the majority of the revenue streams dried up because imaging and elective surgeries weren't happening. So basically, instead of getting that reimbursement on an elective surgical patient, they got it on medical covid admits. Instead of fixing the broke ass system we have in place, they used a bandaid approach that temporarily fixed the revenue streams but didn't fix anything else.

Well to be fair, no one understands the shitty billing system because it's purposefully shitty. It's a problem that's been in the making since the 50s, when the government (shocker, I know) started to stick their nose into it.

icuNurse 2 points ago +3 / -1

Oh of course, I meant that it's a lot more complex than "if we intubate we get more dollars!" That goes around here all the time

arandoperosn 6 points ago +6 / -0

Were there covid patients on vents who made it to 90 days? My uncle was a covid patient on a vent in Canada. I don't think he was on the vent for more than a week. Definitely not more than two. My mother (retired nurse) is adamant about having a no vent policy. She doesn't want that shit.

icuNurse 1 point ago +2 / -1

There's a shitton of them who survive like that. It's pretty much been either they survive 90+ days on the vent or they die within days of being put on a vent. Generally, of course.

AND even though OSHA is rescinding the mandatory vax requirement, Medicare is planning denying payment to any hospital that is not max/vax. <Previously was $750,000 fine.>

Thank you for dropping facts and hard numbers about this subject. Very interesting.

Yawnz13 1 point ago +4 / -3

To add to it, most facilities don't want intubated patients at all simply because they require more effort to manage and so will avoid it as much as possible.

"They intubate everybody!" is born out of the same hyperbolic, sensationalist crap as "the hospitals are literally full!".

There is one of those drive up testing sites by the mall we had to go to return some shit from Kiehls. In April and may of 2020 there were alot of cars in line. Mostly a bunch of scared morons who didn't quite feel right that day. I drove by it again yesterday and it was only one car in the line and I said to my wife. That's probably someone who is being forced because they don't get the jab.

Yawnz13 16 points ago +16 / -0

"Hospitals are overrun" is purely a media creation derived from the notion that nurses are only able to handle a maximum number of patients. It may vary by facility, but mine is supposed to only go to 6 each at most. So if you have 3 nurses on shift, they can only have 18 patients admitted. That doesn't mean that the hospital is "overrun"/"full", but those words are often used in an exaggerated manner to describe the situation.

The media takes advantage of the general public's lack of knowledge about this and writes articles making it appear like the hospitals literally have a patient in every bed.

As for the picture itself...they look like they're wearing stereotypical nurse Halloween costumes or flight attendant uniforms.

718Trumpette 2 points ago +2 / -0

Ask why i, along with hundreds of other women in NYC, had to give birth in hospitals that were mixing healthy people with covid patients. I asked my OB- he said he didn't have hospital rights on the ship or in the empty field hospital 20 minutes away in forest hills.

He will not be my OB for my current baby.

Also nobody figured out how insurance would pay those places. So money and red tape blocked covid and non-covid patients from being treated in separate facilities during peak week in NYC.

After seeing how everyone acted in the hospital that week, i don't trust our medical field to handle anything.

AgentGTO 5 points ago +5 / -0

Ah yes, the 1,000 bed medical Navy ship that just SAT at the harbor in NYC with, at most, 50 or 60 people on it during it's tenure. That's always my go to whenever some moron is trying to push that "overrun hospital" narrative and to no surprise, they stop responding after that. :p

My high school has a dance team. They wore nurse outfits and lab coats to do a routine. They filmed their dance at a local medical clinic one Sunday evening. It went viral on TikTok and everyone thought it was real nurses and doctors. It was weird.

A hero does his job without fanfare, rejecting all calls for recognition and accolades. He works in the still of the night, in the midst of chaos, with the knowledge that his job is needed, necessary and likely thankless. That is what a hero is, not some fame-whore out looking for a prize.

Assuming those were actually nurses in those videos and not professional dancers, a dance routine does not just “happen.” It takes hours and hours of rehearsal to get 20 people to learn all those steps and do them in sync. Not to mention the time it takes to choreograph the whole thing to begin with.

I mean, if it happened once I’d say, Wow that’s pretty impressive that they took the time to do that. A ton of effort goes into something like that. But when there were countless videos of these nurses doing these routines, supposedly at hospitals all over the country, it’s obvious that it wasn’t organic.

JudicialDredd 4 points ago +4 / -0

Most of the tik tok videos I saw were super crappy and looked like they were actually choreographed by dumb nurses and doctors. Very few were any good.

America1stAndOnly 4 points ago +4 / -0

Dude, do you have any idea how sloppy those dance routines were? There were no costumes, no makeup, no lighting setups, and likely no rehearsals. They were far from professional and had all the look of people just fucking around in their freetime.

Felt the same way, and saw a lot of others -even leftist faggots knew something was very off about it, why would they do this kind of thing.

You'll notice this in many of the campaigns the ((globalists)) push.

There's always an element, an angle that is a message of their unbelievable power to people in the know. "Look what we're shoving down your throats now!" that the normies and unaware people miss.

Part of their propaganda is to make you insane, to destroy your will to fight. They want to funnel your anger into despair or at someone/something else -anything but into action.

If you've been red pilled for a long time you've noticed it by now.

I respect your right to think the way you do, However just dancing, no matter how reprehensible, doesn't deserve death. I know the context and I can sympathize with you, but these people are mislead themselves and know not what they do.

I have a bunch of friends and family working for The Ohio State Medical Center. (Columbus, OH)

They were never overwhelmed. Medical Center wasn't prepared for "pandemic", so they shut down procedures for several months. Keep in mind 50%+ of Hospitals $$$ comes from surgeries.

So after several months, there was no noticeable change in critical care admission... sure it went up a bit but not much that it would make the news.

Administration-- Directors, Associate Directors and Mangers started to squeal--- their bonuses were on the line... hospitals were not being fully utilized.

So they resumed procedure around Fall time and put it into overdrive with surgeries that were on hold. This overdrive burned out a whole lot of staff--- so folks started to retire and quit. Hence staff shortage.

This. I took a bunch of jazz dance classes in community college; learning a routine is difficult and strenuous. Learning it well enough so that a half dozen people can do it together requires many,many hours of exhausting work. It is the most strenuous exercise you will ever do. If these nurses hospital was overrun, there is no way they would have the time or energy to choreograph and learn a dance routine.

America1stAndOnly 3 points ago +3 / -0

No. You're thinking of people who would be aiming to put on a professional routine. Most of these dance videos were only seconds long. It's not hard to have 5 or 6 people all hop in a line together and wave their arms up and down, especially when you don't care about anyone being in sync.

Went to the cardiologist, thankfully my heart is fine. When leaving he did tell me I should lose some weight though, which is true, but then he gave me 20 year-old innaccurate advice on how to do so.

Very disappointing. The signs of groupthink in medicine have been around for 50+ years. It's kind of a shame. If more people figured this out sooner, we might have averted the obesity epidemic altogether.

conservativefrank 8 points ago +8 / -0

Those specific people claimed their specific hospital was overrun. Yet they had time to choreograph and practice. They claimed to be working without sleep, yet they were in pristine uniforms with made up hair and wearing makeup. They were overrun, yet they had time to video and post and promote their dance.

Those fuckers infuriated the shit out of me every time I saw a new video... my wife was waiting desperately for having surgery and had an emergency dialysis tube in which should have been present for only a couple of weeks and instead it took over 3 months to have it removed... Her doctor was pissed too because having it inside her that long was dangerous as it had a super high risk of infection. To this day I fucking trust hospitals and those fucktards as far as I can throw them.

Tens of thousands were laid off and furloughed. Cancer surgeries were postponed months and months... considered 'elective' like a boob job.

I went to a dermatology appt at my Nor Cal HMO last week. I've been going once a year for 17yrs (melanoma history) until covid. THen almost 3 yrs no care. The dermatology care building was a ghost town. No patients. THey are STILL DENYING preventative care... and it's by design.

OlenaLehua 6 points ago +6 / -0

My friend died of her cancer that year, because no one could accompany to her chemo appointments. She couldn't go alone because she had a brain tumor and it caused her extreme anxiety. She couldn't face the therapy alone so she quit and died a couple of months later. Don't know if the chemo would have cured it, but her end was dire.

I've been on the receiving end, twice, from an AF doctor and dentist. They really do think that spending an additional four years rote-memorizing information gives them the right to be assholes to everyone who didn't do the same or has a "title" they deem beneath them. Thankfully they're not all like that, but it's a chore to find a good one most of the time.

Back in Sept. of this year, my mom was transported to a local hospital after a weird reaction to off-brand ibuprofen, she thought it was her heart acting up. The staff never tested her heart or did any kind of treatment, made her take a covid test then started talking about getting her transferred to a bigger hospital next town over- where she could be stuck on a ventilator. She left AMA (against medical advice) and came home. She was already feeling better by the next day. It scares the hell out of me to think of her stuck on some breathing machine needlessly. This whole mess has made me begin investigating herbal/plant-based medicines as potential alternatives.

They forced it on me and the first time it was to be able to spend the night in the hospital in the maternity section. I wasn't about to fight that time I just had to be there. And the second time to get a very small procedure. The first time the nurse was a sadist and shoved the thing In my nose so hard it hurt for days. And made my nose feel like I abused a bunch of drugs or something all week. Not that I would know what that's like. Second time I told the nurse who was giving it to me what happened the first. She's like it's alright I'll be gentle. And she barely touched my nostril with it. I think she was one of the good ones. But fuck that first one. Fool me once.

I spent a at least 10 nights in the hospital. Not as a patient but because my son was born and there was alot of complications that happened. Early this year in March and April.

Question. Did we ever find out if these were actual nurses/doctors, in actual hospitals, in wings that dealt with Covid patients?

Reason I'm asking is not that I find it hard to believe people can be this mentally handicapped. Hell, I can even believe that someone like HR told them to do this as part of, I dunno, some idiotic team building or stress relieving exercise. HR is thoroughly infected with this kind of idiocy nowadays.

But before all that, I would just like to know, for certain, that each of these videos were exactly what they seem to be, and not just someone's fabrication - because if someone was to wage a disinformation war against the US in a time of social tensions, I can see this type of content being fabricated and used as a wedge.

We all remember the "nurses" that blocked traffic while holding signs, "coincidentally" in the exact place where there were lots of cameras to film them. I still don't know who those people were, and I have no reason to believe they were actual nurses and doctors. In fact, i'm thoroughly inclined to believe they were political/ideological operatives working hand-in-hand with the media to create exploitable "confrontations".
