    A whole town celebrated in 2020 when, early in the coronavirus pandemic, Thomasville Regional Medical Center opened, offering state-of-the-art medicine that was previously unavailable in a poor, isolated part of Alabama. Now deep in the red two years into the pandemic, the 29-bed, $40 million hospital is among three medical centers are so new they lack full financial statements from before the crisis to prove how much it cost them.“No hospital can sustain itself without getting the CARES Act money that everybody else got,” James said.

    The robots zip around hospitals delivering medicine and other supplies. Vendor Aethon has patched five critical vulnerabilities in hospital robots used to deliver medical supplies. The world of health-related cybersecurity issues is still relatively untouched. In recent years, we've seen the impact of ransomware outbreaks in hospitals; software vulnerabilities including those that could, in theory, stop a pacemaker from working, and countless patient data leaks at providers worldwide. However, unless there's a clear-cut financial benefit, many cyberattackers will ignore medical devices in favor of hitting businesses likely to provide them with illicit revenue. This doesn't mean that vendors, or defenders,...

    NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — COVID-19 hospitalization numbers have plunged to their lowest levels since the early days of the pandemic, offering a much needed break to health care workers and patients alike following the omicron surge. The number of patients hospitalized with the coronavirus has fallen more than 90% in more than two months, and some hospitals are going days without a single COVID-19 patient in the ICU for the first time since early 2020....

    Sick and All AloneIt shouldn’t be needed, but it is. Florida governor Ron DeSantis has introduced a patient protection bill, so that ‘if you’re in a hospital or long-term care facility, you have a right to have your loved ones there present with you.’ Every other state and country will hopefully follow. Some places have even prevented the dying from dying in the company and warmth of loved ones.Reacting to the Governors bill, Brownstone scholar Dr. Jay Bhattacharya tweeted: “Perhaps the cruelest lockdown policy: preventing people from visiting their sick loved ones in hospitals or long-term care facilities”Many people commented...

    The depths of Covid corruption at Gundersen Health System can’t fit on one page, and that hospital is just the tip of the iceberg.Andrea Babinski never imagined she would be forced to get a vaccine to keep her nursing job.“When people would say stuff like, ‘Oh, mask mandates today and slippery slope to vaccine mandates tomorrow,’ I thought, ‘No, that’s crazy. That sounds like a conspiracy theory, like wacko people,'” she said. For the medical-surgical nurse who worked at Gundersen Health Systems for 12 years, it was never about politics. Due to several autoimmune issues, Babinski decided medically the shot...

    BURKE COUNTY, N.C. — A Burke County man’s decision not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine means he also won’t be getting a much-needed kidney transplant. Chad Carswell, a double amputee who has undergone several major surgeries on his heart, now faces a different battle. Carswell told Channel 9′s Dave Faherty his kidney is only operating at about 4%…. …. In a statement to Channel 9, the hospital said the policy is in place to provide protection for the patient, because transplant patients are at high risk for severe illness if they don’t have pre-existing immunity. “Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist’s...

    Under a new temporary guideline to combat the surge in COVID-19 patients, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will allow health care workers to work if they are positive with COVID-19. The order will run until Feb. 1 and applies only to asymptomatic cases. The new order was issued due to the high spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant, which has caused staffing shortages in all sectors including nurses. The spread is beginning to fill capacity at most hospitals. “Given those conditions, [we are] providing temporary flexibility to help hospitals and emergency services providers respond to an unprecedented surge...

    While being interviewed by MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin, filling in for Rachel Maddow, Fauci admitted that many of the children who are in the hospital with Covid-19 are not in the hospital because of the disease. Watch: The portion that preceded this video seemed to be same-old lying Fauci as he detailed that Covid is putting more kids in the hospital. “First of all, quantitatively, you’re having so many more people, including children, who are getting infected. And even though hospitalization among children is much, much lower on a percentage basis than hospitalizations for adults, particularly elderly individuals,” he said,...

    Hospital beds in Illinois are more full than they were during the COVID-19 pandemic’s deadliest surge last year, according to an analysis in The Chicago Tribune. The newspaper reported that a part of the problem is a staff shortage that makes it more difficult to staff beds. It said that even with such problems, hospitals in the state are now staffing about 900 more beds than at their busiest times last year, but that they are also caring for an average of 1,500 patients a day.
  • New Maze-Like Surface Kills Bacteria in 2 Minutes: 120x Faster Than Normal Copper

    A microscopic close-up of the copper surface. (Smith et al., Biomaterials, 2021) ========================================================================= Copper is well known for being able to kill off bacteria that it comes into contact with – the metal releases ions that are toxic to bacterial cells, punching through their outer membranes. However, this process usually takes several hours. A newly developed copper surface does the job in just a couple of minutes, though, some 120 times faster than normal copper. The less time the bacteria hang around, of course, the safer that surfaces like door handles and worktops are going to be. The scientists behind...

    As we examine our experience with the COVID vaccines, treatments, and mandates now (December 2021), there are several things that are disturbing, but becoming clear: (a) We have been misled, if not lied to, about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccines. (b) Treatments for COVID, such as ventilators and Remdesivir, have actually killed thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people. (c) The afflicted have often not been treated early enough to save lives. (d) Government agencies such as the CDC and NIH have financial interests in the vaccine, so they have shunned more effective and much cheaper treatments...

Here are stunning excerpts: “Upon admission to a once-trusted hospital, American patients with COVID-19 become virtual prisoners, subjected to a rigid treatment protocol…for rationing medical care in those over age 50. They have a shockingly high mortality rate…” “As exposed in audio recordings, hospital executives in Arizona admitted meeting several times a week to lower standards of care, with coordinated restrictions...

    A Virginia hospital was held in contempt of court Monday after refusing to administer ivermectin to a woman who has been battling COVID-19 since early October. What are the details? Kathleen Davies, a 63-year-old northern Virginia woman, became severely ill with COVID in October, and she has been on a ventilator since Nov. 3. Davies was prescribed ivermectin by her family doctor, but she could not complete her regime upon being admitted to the Fauquier Hospital in Warrenton. That's because the northern Virginia hospital refused to administer the drug, "citing medical, legal and practical concerns," the Fauquier Times reported. Davies'...
