Skip to comments."Sending Patients Home?" A Rumor? (vanity)

VANITY An anti-Trump person just told me that hospitals are now sending the oldest patients with coronovirus home from the hospital. I know this is bound to be fake (she does watch CNN). I've done research--does anyone have ANY idea what she might be referring to? It might be futile--but I want to set the record straight as much as I can to as many people as I can.
They’ve already been caught airing footage from inside an Italian hospital and claiming its from New York.
I heard that was happening in Italy but we are nowhere near peak here.
Along those lines, I think they are doing this in Italy. Not admitting the older citizens there or something like that.
Ask her for facts; what state, city or even hospital. They usually fold when asked to back up their talking points...
Tell her Cuomo ordered it.
Ask the person to prove it. Its not your job to prove them wrong, its their job to to prove they are right.
Your reply: STFU stupid.
Local hospital in rural WA reports sending MOST victims home. Reporting is too childish to determine treatment. Notably residents of other counties come to the hospital in our county and get counted here, instead of their county of residence. A LOT of >65 patients sent home for treatment.
Fake news to inflame the public, lead to rage and fear
They used to just tell old folks that Republicans were going to cut social security
Now they will be telling old people Republicans ( Trump) wants them to die
SEDITION by mass media
The infection rate in the U.S.outside of New York is still not that bad (in a clinical sense).
Ask for a source. That’s probably all it’ll take to back’em down.
They usually fold
The standard reply: Im not talking about this anymore (if they dont call you a racist)
A hospital is not going to send anyone home in respiratory distress. They would be open to huge law suits. Mild or no symptoms, yes, but with instructions that if symptoms turn to the worse, they are to immediately return to the hospital.
A lie is not a lie because it is necessarily untrue. It is a lie because of the implication—that what a person wants the hearer to believe of the lie.
I am a hospice patient and we ARE receiving patients at home on hospice who are covid-19 positive. However, these are people who are already terminally ill. People make the decision every day to not pursue aggressive treatment and to go home on hospice.
Pneumonia is a common reason people elect hospice who have life-limiting illnesses. The implication is that people are coming home with Covid-19 to save hospital resources for people who have a better chance. I do not believe the implication is true. People are being sent home because they are dying and hospice care at home is one of the most compassionate ways for a person to spend their last days.
That is supposedly going on in Italy. Not here
