    That they are asking traveling nurses in Memphis to cut their contracts early...

    Our friend the traveling nurse said that last night at the start of their shift, they called all the travelers together and asked if anyone wanted to terminate their contract early.

    Our friend volunteered. The conditions on the Covid unit are horrible. People are so terrified of the virus that housekeeping won't go on that floor. They have no "techs" so these nurses are having to change diapers, switch bed pans, change bedding, etc by themselves, so the whole floor is an absolute disaster.

    They had one woman admitted yesterday for depression. She was, by her own words, so terrified of Covid-19 that she can't think straight. She couldn't leave the house, she couldn't do anything, so she was admitted to the psyche ward. They tested her, and she got a positive test, but has absolutely ZERO symptoms. So that sent her over the edge, and she just sat in her bed crying as she was transferred to the Covid unit.

    That's how bad the Covid spike in Shelby County TN. is.

    Good for Shelby County. Not so good in other places.

    The numbers are starting to drop here. I expect that will change when the weather starts turning cooler.

    In Dallas County Tx, since the protests have stopped the new case of 'rona have dropped in half. You couldn't hold a gun on a public official and get them yo admit the linkage.

    We had a similiar experience at our building. A few nurses and aides declined to provide care to covid clients and the same with the housekeeping staff. The therapy staff helped out. We were bathing, feeding, and cleaning rooms. Fortunately, the big wave is gone in our building. EVERYONE is tested weekly. and we now have 2 positive residents.

    I think this is more true than anyone would want to believe.

    Some of the "rule outs" that they have had have been held for days on end, and retested multiple times so they can get a positive test cause that's where the money is.

    Something else I have said a couple of times, they have NO treatment protocol. These doctors are basically experimenting with steroids and antibiotics. No antivirals, no HCQ, nothing. It's a ****ing joke.

    The mask mandate could have some play into that as well. It will be interesting to see if there is another spike in a couple of weeks since there was a big Back the Blue rally over the weekend. I know it was a car rally, but they stopped at places along the way so there was a good chance of mingling.

    Reminds me of the AIDS scare. We DIDN'T STOP taking care of those Patients even though we didn't KNOW what would happen to us.
    It was our job.
    We did it.
    KUDOS to the Men, and Women fighting this today.
    Who knows how this will end.
    But FU3K CHINA!!!!!

    When you've got the elite running the Chi-Com Flu racket via MSM fear mongering through authoritarian minded Governors, you can bring psychologically ruination to almost any Ken & Karen at the pedestrian level.

    In a couple years, after all the surgical mask obsessions, trillions tanked economy, continued unavoidable human illnesses, a few buried Grannies and restrictions on personal liberties, we'll all look back, shake off the sniffles and wonder if this was all worth it.

    We've had several positives at work. They all recovered quickly and are back to work. I guess they were part of the 98.5%.

    The 606,000 that will die from cancer this year feel their pain.

    The good thing about CV19 is there have been no Flu deaths reported by the media and the Opioid epidemic and related deaths have ended.
