People have died from COVID-19, because the doctors at the Texas hospital will not cure the disabled, Pro-life organization claimed.
St David’s Austin medical center allegedly refused to treat a paralyzed Michael Hickson, 46, for their disability, it means “quality of life”.
It contract COVID-19 from an employee in its nursing home, developed pneumonia, and then was hospitalized in ST. David.
In the recorded conversation between the doctor and his wife Melissa, the doctor says her attending Hickson was useless to give it to the state.
“Who will make the decision whether someone’s quality of life if they have a disability that their quality of life is not good?” she can be heard asking in YouTube video.
“As of now, his quality of life — he missed it,” the doctor replied. “It will be [the treatment] to improve the quality of their life and then the answer is no.
“There is no improvement to be intubated with a bunch of lines and tubes in your body, and being on a ventilator for two weeks.”
He can be heard saying to Melissa, he can count on the one hand, three people in the hospital who survived on a ventilator, all of which are young with no prior health status.
“I don’t think it would be humane and compassionate to put a breathing tube in the man and the hoses and everything, because I don’t think it will be good for him,” the medic explained.
Melissa can be heard as she agreed with the doctor not to intubate the patient husband, but accused him in an attempt to save Hickson different.
“None of these things is easy,” he replies. “And it is a calculated decision. And we believe that it will be better for him.”
I don’t think it would be humane and compassionate to put a breathing tube in the man and the hoses.
“At the moment, we’re going to do what we think is best for him, along with the state, and that’s what we decided,” he tells her after a few minutes. “This decision between the medical community and state.”
Melissa and other family members fought in court to be a permanent Hickson guardian, according to Texas Pro-life groups.
But the judge ordered the family to the elderly as temporary guardian Hickson, who confirmed the doctor to put him in hospice.
While driving his wife Melissa to work in may 2017, hixon became a quadriplegic after a sudden cardiac arrest, according to Texas right to life.
Hickson suffered anoxic brain injury from loss of oxygen to the brain after CPR, but the organization and Melissa said he was conscious.
Another YouTube video posted by Melissa in 2018, showed the Hickson move his face, as his family joked and chatted with him.
He was survived by his 47-year-old widow and five children.
The sun reached St. David South Austin medical center for discussion on Friday.
Experts in the field of health warned that elderly people or those with underlying conditions are likely to get seriously ill if they contract a deadly mistake.
In Texas, cases dangerously surging and Governor Greg Abbott has declared, that inhabitants of the house as new cases increased by 5,996 Thursday, with a record number of hospitalizations.
