In Democrat controlled Los Angeles County, ambulance crews are deciding if you’re worth taking to the hospital or not. LA hospitals are overwhelmed with flu cases and running out of oxygen. Their health officials ordered “not to transport patients that have little chance of survival.”
No ambulance for the worst cases
If you come down with Covid, and live in the Democrat paradise of Greater Los Angeles, you better get to the hospital before you get too bad.
L.A. County Emergency Medical Services issued a memo Monday directing ambulance crews to “conserve oxygen by only giving it to patients who have oxygen saturation levels below 90%.” Last week they issued orders not to “transport patients to the hospital who have virtually no chance for survival.”
When the ambulance crew gets to the scene, they are “instructed to attempt resuscitation for at least 20 minutes until the patient is stabilized.”
“If a pulse is not restored or if the person is declared dead at the scene, they are not to be brought to the hospital.”
Emergency rooms in LA are packed so tight that patients are being left inside the ambulance for up to eight hours before they can get inside the building.
The whole time, “those ambulances can’t respond to other emergency calls, including those not related to the coronavirus,” like gunshot wounds and overdoses.
Post Thanksgiving surge
Because Democrats can’t even clean the crap off their streets, health officials expect it to get much worse. Because so many people broke the rules to break bread with family at Thanksgiving, they can’t send an ambulance if you have a heart attack because of “the post-Thanksgiving surge.”
As related by L.A. County director of health services Dr. Christina Ghaly on Monday, they “do not believe that we are yet seeing the cases that stemmed from the Christmas holiday.”
“This, sadly, and the cases from the recent New Year’s holiday, is still before us, and hospitals across the region are doing everything they can to prepare.”
Even though the total number of deaths this year has been about the same as previous years, and Covid-19 isn’t much more severe than the normal flu, Ambulance crews and hospitals are suddenly overwhelmed.
Many Americans think the whole crisis has been manufactured and blown out of proportion.
For some reason, Los Angeles always manages to be able to send an ambulance if an illegal alien needs one, and they would rather treat you for bubonic plague than clean up the filth in the streets.
One Ex-Marine California judge even discovered that the State has more than enough money to solve the homeless problem but sat on it because spending it to actually help the homeless would eliminate interest income they were making from leaving the help money sit in the bank.
