"medical director" Discussed on Outcomes Rocket
"Need it. Yeah and and jeff you know the point of continuous monitoring. You know this is a i think the difficult but simple innovation right so talk to us about what you guys do. That's different and better than what's available today. Yeah so. I mean. I think when you think about standard care for most people now for ten diabetes or or really for any condition. You know what you're thinking about is typically sort of standard episodic care so like i mentioned you know my days as a primary care. Physician would be expected that you see the the doctor in person for maybe ten or fifteen minutes every few months. If you're lucky and then you have kind of a list of things to do like add this medication. She's a dietitian. Try to maybe make some diet changes. The dietitian gives you a handout and wishes you well and so you know. In between those episodes of care people are really kind of on their own right so they're trying to fend for themselves. They're trying to figure out what to eat on a daily basis when to take their meds all of that and so what we really i think do differently is that we're able to work with a patient on a daily basis really to be able to implement these changes and so you know when someone enrolls with our team. They're assigned a personal health coach. And this whole coach is working with them closely on know what a way each. What do i do when i go out to a restaurant. A what. Can i do to avoid those donuts in the break room at work or during kobe. It's more you know. What foods can i stock up on or you know other things during this tough time and so people are getting that kind of support on a daily basis. They're text messaging their question that pop into their mind rather than waiting for that ten minutes. Is it with the dock. Where you gotta ask everything or you know pets. Your that's your window and you've lost it and then you've got the so you've got the support from the coach but then you know. In addition as i mentioned because people are rapidly improving their glucose you need to have the medical supervision to be able to safely remove medications when needed so if somebody all of a sudden. Isn't eating a whole bunch of sugar. Their blood glucose is going to go down. And if they're still taking insulin you have to have a doctor there to reduce or remove the influence or they could have dangerous. Low blood sugar. So we're monitoring at all times. People are logging. Their values were looking at the trajectory of the changes. And then again sort of proactively working to say okay. Well your glucose is looking great today. It's one twenty today. It was to forty yesterday. Let's go ahead and cut your insulin. From thirty units to twenty minutes and so dot kind of feedback again is great for patient. They see that their hard work pays off pretty quickly and then it also allows us to intervene when they might be struggling or a you know some sort of a life event comes up or just just anything that might get in the way of their long term success but they don't have to wait for that six months visit to backslide and then try to restart again. Yeah that's excellent and you know this. Continuous care with the coach. Seems really interesting. And so is there are also layered accountability where they have to share what they're eating and quantities and all that stuff you highlight more there. Yeah so you know again. We give people a sort of an overarching plan of personal habits carbohydrate research until we know that reducing the amount of carbohydrates. Somebody's they have. Diabetes is really beneficial for their blood sugar. So you know. People are giving some kind of general guidance around avoid this food you know. Don't drink a coke maybe try this instead. And then they're logging democracy. They're testing their blood sending those values to us. And then we're using those values to help troubleshoot so people aren't having to do an exhaustive food journal of everything they eat in the day. Because we're seeing actually what the numbers do now. If someone struggling sometimes we will really died in and have them do an in depth food journal or start to dive into things like sleep or stress or exercise or things like that but one thing. That's pretty nice for patients that they're not so laser focused on every calorie every piece of food. They're eating it's more of this kind of framework that they're using and then again the result help us to dial in what they might need to change. Love it and you're really affecting these numbers really. You're looking at a one c right. Bring it down to a point where diabetes eventually goes away exactly. Yeah i mean in so in our clinical trial and then we've also released some of our data from our commercial partners. What we see in general is usually about sixty percent of patients that are working with our team are in diabetes reversal category. So they basically bring their ailing see below six point five to blow that diabetes threshold and in addition there are no longer on the diabetes medications. And we'll get sort of averages across the population it's usually about a one to one point. Three point drop in hemoglobin. Anyone see but again with the interesting thing is that that's happening with on average about fifty to sixty percent reduction in the med. That they're on so amazing. Great for patients. Obviously also great for the payers because those meds can be pretty expensive. Oh my gosh yeah. It's a huge cost to people to the payer to the society. And so i mean just incredible work and something like this doesn't just get put together or without any issues or in a setbacks and we tend to learn more from those what would you say. Jeff is one of the key setbacks. You guys had that you learn so much from that's made you guys better right and you and having listened to the podcast. I share probably with a lot of your guests and not surprisingly that co bid had been a you know a big big change. initially a really big setback. So you know. Basically at the time before covert hit the our company was really poised for rapid growth. You know hiring a bunch of people planning on rapid expansions and more patient volume and then when it became very clear that code was going to be a serious situation everything kind of paused right so they are deals that were in contracting and just about to be signed basically went dormant or folks stop responding new sales deal some talking to hr leader talking to chief medical officers. Everybody basically said we're hunkering down. We have to figure things out before. We're going to expand or take on any sort of a new diabetes solution for our patients. So you know that was a big disruption.
Case of 76 Who Died of COVID-19 in Veterans Home, Lands in Court
"At a Massachusetts veterans home are trying to get criminal charges against them. Dismissed after a deadly covid outbreak last year. Lawyers for Holyoke soldiers Home Superintendent Bennett Walsh and former medical director Dr David Clinton argued the state had managed burden of proof. Prosecutors had argued the decision by Walsh and Clinton to cram residents who tested positive for Covid 19 with residents who didn't was negligent. But they claim they're being scapegoated by the state and Walsh's lawyer says his client early alert to the state led to the deployment of the National Guard and help save lives. 76 veterans died in the home at the beginning of the pandemic last March. The judge didn't issue a ruling. Another court date is set for October. Rob

A terrific question. A with with all the cdc guidance about masks about mandatory vaccines about all of it. What are you doing about the illegals. Here's mark. I have a question. For the cdc busy issuing all kinds of orders to american citizens vaccinated citizens are supposed to wear masks. Don't you understand when you tell people that they're not going to get vaccinated on the one hand you say hurry up and get vaccinated on the other hand we're gonna treat you as if you're not vaccinated that's not science that's stupidity and we've had a lot of stupidity at a federal scientists and medical directors over the course of the last eighteen months but you wanna know big stupidity.

Nine hundred percent of the border numbers. Continue to rise. We don't know how many illegal aliens have it. We know they're not tested. We know they're poor. They're coming from poorer countries that they don't have access to vaccines. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe because our southern border is open by design people coming across the border situation. We're being overwhelmed. You look at the red map. The cdc director puts out there. What do you see. The southeastern united states is getting hit. Hardest southern california's getting hit hardest. How come they're not getting hit in north carolina. North dakota how come. They're not getting hit on the northern border the way they are on the southern border. Well we have some ideas about this. Don't we now the. Cdc is so out of control that it ordered not long ago landlords not to raise rates or to to remove tenants and a federal court. Said you're the. Cdc you don't have the power to do that. Hey cdc joe by never question for you for health purposes cdc. Why don't you issue orders to secure the southern border so we can make sure people who are coming across. Don't have the virus and aren't spreading in the united

Got that as our understanding of malnutrition and we were told. Basically food provides all the nutrients you need. You don't need vitamins and supplements makes expensive urine and we should just not follow on that track and study after study comes out showing how this interventional trial with omega three or four later this that doesn't work And and so the consumers wondering what's going on because it's clear that are is depleted and that people are eating a lot of crap and that thought a poor nutrition going on but but is there really a pandemic of malnutrition which can show up in someone who's thin or someone who was extremely overweight so Talk about what the state of our nutrition.

Seattle Children’s Knew for Years Security Was Called Disproportionately on Black Patients
"Seattle Children's Hospital are more than twice as likely. Have security called to their rooms. If they're black, it's a racial divide in the use of what Children's calls Code purple more from comas. Corwin take Seattle Children. Staff members invoke Code purple if they need a security guard to report to a patient's room in response to unsafe or threatening behavior, either by the patient or often by a parent. A Seattle Times investigation finds Code purple is invoked more than twice as often for black patients than for white patients. It's a form of institutional racism. That in part, led to the resignation of Dr Ben Danielson as medical director of the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic, part of the Seattle Children's System, Danielson tells KCTS Seattle Children's own assessment revealed the disparity a decade ago, finding that security was just proportionately called on families based on the color of their skin. 10 years ago and then sitting on that there's a tacit acceptance and since there's a complicity of like, Yeah, we know this and we're not gonna do anything about it. A Seattle Children's spokesperson acknowledges the issue. Telling the Times systemic and institutional racism exists across our healthcare system and Children's is not immune.

Mercury Toxicity with Dr. Elizabeth Boham
"I'm so happy to be sharing the story of mercury with you and a personal story for me with my colleague and medical director on this very special episode of the doctors pharmacy called house call. And i'm gonna sit down with so many of my colleagues the ultra wellness center in lenox massachusetts and liz is just my number one dock. She's a medical director of the ultra wellness center. She teaches all over the world. She's in the faculty and super functional medicine. She's one of the best doctors. I know and we are going to talk about mercury. So welcome liz. Inst- mark it's great to be with you today so let's start with talking about. Why do you think this is just so ignored. Because every is such a prevalent problem and when we cast people at the ultra center we find so many people have not only high blood levels of mercury but high total body levels in fact we did a survey of the ten thousand tests and we done at some point in time and we looked at the number of people who had toxicity and it was forty percent of the people who came to wanna center had high levels of mercury that interfere with their biology. So why did he just ignored. And and what we have to do to properly discover whether mercury is an issue for somebody or not. I mean it's it's a great question. Mark you know Even the world health organization recognizes that mercury is one of the top ten chemicals a major public health concern.

Separating facts from fiction on major COVID-19 vaccine misconceptions
"Of coded. The news does seem to get a little better every day, particularly when it comes to vaccines. We now have three covert vaccines in circulation. Advisor Madonna and Johnson and Johnson. More and more vaccination sites are taking appointments in the U. S. Almost 77 million doses have been administered. Even his inoculations rise. So do the questions. What does that mean for our daily lives after we get both shots? Can we take off our masks and we go on vacation? To get some answers. We talked to Dr Sandra Cash, deputy medical director and infectious disease specialist at West Bed Medical Group, located in Westchester, New York. Is what she had to say. Thanks so much for joining us. You're welcome My pleasure. So with the vaccine on everyone's mind these days, what are some of the common misconceptions about the vaccine? You know, just that this is ah, very good question, and I've seen and heard all sorts of mythology out there about the vaccines. Some of the more common myths that I've seen are that the vaccine can close Cove. It Um, the vaccine. The genetic material in the M R in a vaccines can actually affect your gardener your genetic material on but it can cause problems with fertility. Um You know, and the first two are flat out wrong. Um, you know, the genetic material in the in the vaccines really does not interact with your DNA's A. It's degraded very rapidly in the side of possum. The area outside the nucleus of the cell by yourselves. Enzymes on that happens really, Very quiet. Very quickly. Um, you know, the question about fertility and impact on fertility is one that I think we have not seen evidence of that to be the case. I don't anticipate that being The case. But you know these air new vaccines, So we simply haven't had the time on Ben. The question about whether the vaccines can cause Kobe that that one is flat out wrong. There's no mechanistic way for that to happen with the vaccines that we use these air, not live vaccines. Well, that's great to hear, and it's good to be clear about the facts. After you had two shots of the vaccine, and the correct time period has passed. Do you still need to wear a mask and other other precautions you should be taking you do And the reason it seems a little counterintuitive, But the reason we we continue to make that recommendation is several fold. Probably the most important reason behind that is that we still don't know. And I'm anticipating will have the answer to that in the next few months. Whether vaccination prevents transmission, meaning that a vaccine individual will not get infected if they're exposed to someone with Cove it But they may still get enough of the virus to carry it in their nose in their fair or unfair, inks the back of their throat and be able to spread it toe unvaccinated individuals. And that's where masters becomes a mechanism. Tol interrupt that that transmission I suspect what we'll see with covert vaccine is what we've seen with vaccines for other infectious diseases. Primarily that vaccination not only prevents infection, which we know the M Marny vaccines, the backs and the Johnson Johnson vaccine, they're highly effective in preventing infection. They'll also be very effective in preventing preventing transmission. This asymptomatic carrier status. We just don't have that information now. So we continue to make that recommendation recommendation on mask use until we have that additional information. So given that is it safe to expand your social bubble? Once you have the vaccine, and if so, who can you include? That's a trickier question, and I'll give you like a scenario. So if you're with other vaccinated individuals what you can Probably pretty. Realistically assume, is that those individuals? If they're carrying the virus, they won't infect you. And you won't infect them. What you can't assume And what we're not sure of yet is whether if you're carrying the virus again and your nose, you won't get the infection because you've been vaccinated. Can you expose another person in your gathering and they again Because they've been vaccinated won't get infected. But will they get enough of the virus in their nasal mucosa and then take it to their home where they may have unvaccinated individuals? Now? The likelihood of that happening? You know, there are lots of steps involved. Becomes increasingly remote. And so I've seen, you know, groups of people who have been vaccinating getting together and you know and not wearing masks. I don't think we're at that point yet I would feel much more comfortable with that once we kind of reach more a level of herd immunity. But what vaccination does do is it obviously prevents you from getting infected and dying from this, You know disease, which can be horrible, But it also allows you to do things that you may have been very frightened to do with a lot more comfort, and I think one of the things that we talked about a lot with Cove. It is this underlying kind of second pandemic of tremendous anxiety and fear that it's created in people. You know, fear of going to the store fear of interacting with people fear of even going Outside an exercise in which we know was probably one of the safer things you could do right now. And I think vaccination gives you you know, Ah, lot of relief that if you do go to the store and someone buy, you sneezes or coughs that you know you don't have to have that panic attack, you know, And I think that is a huge weight off of a lot of people's shoulders, and that's why you know Healthcare people in epidemiologist and all the people are talking about. This is really the first major step back to a sense of normalcy and why vaccination is going to be so important for us to get back Tol we were the society. So
New York Governor Cuomo Should Resign or Be Impeached Over Covid Scandal
"Finally allowed to talk about the fact that Andrew cuomo is a garbage governor. Who got a lot of people killed with bad policy. In fact there's a piece in the week today. By ryan cooper titled resign andrew cuomo. He points out that his administration concealed data about kroger's cases in nursing homes reportedly for fear of federal prosecution stories of his vitriolic abuse and threats directed at other democratic. new york. Politicians are coming out yet even all that is only the start of deadly corrupting competence. So in keeping with judging by his by his results cuomo should resign immediately and free new york state from his dismal. Misrule says ryan cooper of the week and not at the nursing home scandal has been bubbling for nearly a year. Now it starts with cuomo's inexplicable decision back in march two thousand twenty two order nursing homes to accept recovering covid nineteen patients even if they were still testing positive a recent. Ap investigation found that. At least nine thousand recovering patients were sent back to nursing homes and long term care facilities a number that is forty percent larger than his administration had previously admitted is unquestionably worsened. The pandemic as it ripped through new york's elderly population. that's not the only number cuomo fudged nursing homes new york attorney general letitia. James investigated situation found that his people may have under counted the number of deaths associated with nursing homes by fifty percent cuomo. Then instead of the eighty five hundred said they'd been reporting. The true number was over. Fifteen thousand about a third of the state's deaths and then of course in your post reported comments from cuomo's top aide. Melissa rosa seemingly admitted that they deliberately faked the numbers as part of a cover up. His officials froze fear. The truth is going to be used against us. By federal prosecutors ran cooper says cuomo bungled the pandemic basically from the jump. The new york city metro got hammered with the worst break in the country. In the following months cuomo's compulsive bullying and control. Habits gradually drove an exodus of public health professionals from the state government including the state's health department director of bureau of communicable disease control as medical director for uppity myalgia in the state epidemiologist and then his micromanagement tangled up the early stages of the state's vaccine rollout he throughout the plan. The state health department had worked up over months substituting his own he put he put in place strict requirements that only people who qualified to get shots but then added threats of punishment for organizations that didn't distribute their shots fast enough and the result was chronic delays. His bottom line is this. Cuomo has been a garbage governor in the media. Didn't just cover for him. They featured him. He was the greatest government in america. Meanwhile ron santa's greatest villain. In america down in florida with the number two populations seniors in america by percentage after main which has seven people.
How To Steal Back Your Identity
"The greatest betrayal of abbey. Ellen's life began with a newspaper assignment. I was reading a story about detox diets. And i need to quote an expert and someone suggested this guy. Abby is a journalist and the author of duped a book about this fateful interview and the bizarre life altering aftermath and so i quoted him Actually it was in the new york times called a fact check. I said are you still in florida and he said no. I'm in the navy now i rejoined. I'm opening up a hospital for kids with cancer in iraq and afghanistan. And i said that's awesome. I want to write about that. Keep me posted and so he sort of did so. We'd never met in person until all why a later that when he finally was coming to new york city where i was living because he had to give a big talk at the un clearly and so he came to do is talk of the un and we went to dinner six months later abbey and this man who she calls the commander were engaged. They moved in together in dc. Well he worked at the pentagon. Abby went to grad school for international relations. But the more time she spent with the commander the more abby sense to something just wasn't quite right. What i made you suspicious. Me told me he had met his first. The first ex wife who's really his second ex wife but his first when he rescued her when she was held hostage in iran. And i said the age didn't add up. I said when we in iran he said oh it was a secret mission. You wouldn't have heard about it really well. And then i thought okay the someone has to do these jobs like better better. Decoy this nerdy asthmatic. Doctor you know like like why not and then. He told me that he worked at guantanamo as the medical director which he did that was part of the problem is that he kind of mixed fiction and fact together and one of his patients was a very wanted terrorist named osama bin laden. And i said that is impossible. And he said the president doesn't know and then i got like all you know. Carrie mathison a homeland. Like god. who's the jihadist. And who's not and who knows what it was. I was gasoline making myself crazy. Suddenly abby found herself using her reporting skills to investigate her own fiance she talked to professors about whether the commanders impressive stories could even be possible. Never like yeah. That's the possible. The final straw was when we went out to dinner with my parents. And we had brussel sprouts and he raved about the brussels sprouts and when we got out he said that meal was awful and i said why did you lie. And he said. I wanted to make them feel better. And that's when. I said you know what i'm out. There's no need to lie about something like okay. So so he was treating been logging and the president to know about it but it was. The brussels sprouts praised that gave him away in the end. I knew they weren't good but more than that. He admitted that he had lied. He said i wanted to make them feel good. And i thought you lie so beautifully which has flowed out of him. If you could lie about that you could lie about anything when you finally did confront him. How did he react to that. Well i left him. I said i'm out. So i never talk to him again. And i didn't find out until a year and a half later that he in fact had been stealing identities and when he was a drug addict. And i got a call from ncis and they said you know there's a doctor who's been writing prescriptions for vicodin and he's been using a bunch of people's names and identities and you're one of the people. Do you know this guy. Do you ever prescription. And i said well. No 'cause i prefer valium and so of course but anyway so he went to jail to make a statement against him. I just started researching all this stuff about this guy. Heaven the guy you're about to marry steal your identity is obviously different than casey's going through but it actually has a lot more in common with her situation than you might think abbas wrestled with the kind of psychological trauma that really defines any breach of trust. And she understands the obsession. That's now leading. Casey to work twenty hour weekends on her case. So you're in this kind of like luminol space of you may be probably sort of know them. But you don't know and you're not sure if you're ever gonna find out right. Can you kind of describe where you are with all this well. I kind of actually have this idea that i might want to sort of help other victims by maybe writing a book about the experience. I guess what i'm trying to do. Is you know sort of gather information about how other people handled it and how they move forward with their lives. But i don't necessarily want focus too much on our case. Because i feel like it's not mentally healthy evian. You've seen more people get duped and cope with getting duped than the next by by a long shot. So i'm curious to hear sort of your take on. What's the most interesting thing to me is. When i was reading the book was a how many people i spoke to. Who had been duped and most people didn't wanna talk about it or use their real name because everybody felt completely humiliated. So when you talk about writing a book to help people and what i tried to do anyway is at least make people feel less stupid. And if you're gonna feel stupid that's okay because everybody's stupid then
Why is Spain's Covid-19 vaccine rollout going so slowly?
"Go to Spain, now one of the hardest hit countries in Europe when the first wave of covert 19 struck last year on although the third wave has hit the country later than many of its neighbors, Spain is now starting to feel its force. With nearly 60,000 deaths registered In addition, Spain is also being affected by the controversy surrounding vaccine does deliveries in Europe Guy head coach reports now from Madrid in Madrid's Isabel Sandal hospital healthcare staff for being vaccinated among them is Claudia Lopez in working here in the candle in the hospital, a malady I'm working a sinner's. I'm really very excited because I had my second boxing on. I'm feeling really well at the moment. This is very important for everyone to have the vaccine. Because I think this is the beginning off the off the end off the carpet, health care workers and residents of care homes and their carers have bean those receiving the jab in recent weeks. Problems with vaccine deliveries in the European Union have meant that the administration of doses is being prioritized even more than before. In Madrid. Vaccine shortages mean that only second follow up jabs are currently being administered how the ADM article is a medical director of the hospital here in Madrid, for example. We are not going to be able to meet our plan. That he lay off the vaccination program that report cushion is going to affect going toe be visible on the number of patients are going to get infected. And on the number of bets. This'll hospital was built in only three months in response to the covert crisis. It opened in December, but it's already under strain. The third wave of Corona virus hit Spain Hard after Christmas, his family gatherings over the festive period transferred into soaring infection rates. Rise in cases now appears to be easing off again in public, Danica But Fernando C'mon, the government's head of medical emergencies, has warned that the highly contagious British strain of covert will be the dominant one in Spain within the next few weeks. Controversy in Europe over deliveries of vaccine doses has had relatively little political impact here in Spain, but there has been outraged you to a serious of scandals caused by public figures who have apparently used their position in order to jump the queue and get vaccinated early. Mayors of several small towns are among those implicated on the head of the armed forces, Miguel and Columbia. Roya resigned recently after it emerged he had received the vaccine. These cases have angered ordinary Spaniards. It's another winter, huh? This is how this race it's a social disgrace on a problem we have in Spain. I don't know if this happens in other countries. It is the kind of thing that you hear about in other areas of life. But this time it's more visible. Everybody that I'm saying it's just really tired of the situation. We are old. Too sick of it, and we don't see the end and I think it's yes, it's really upsetting on it said we'll have sitting that's like saying that you have to act really responsible.

There's like one person I think of the vaccine are but basically no one got sick and either the my journal or the flies or studies from Covina. That's also why there's that recommendation. Even if you've had Cove it to still go ahead and get vaccinated right? Because we know that again. It's like having that first dose of vaccine, but that second sort around the vaccine. Um you know, you're really gonna mount a response and look in the future. Maybe if you've had covert do you really need two doses? I don't know We're not there yet. You know, I will further antibody studies. Maybe with like tigers, you know, determine how many doses each person actually needs, maybe in the future, But right now, we just don't have that amount of data right now.

I'm joined by Dr Jason Wilson, Medical director of the clinical decision unit at Tampa General Hospital and associate professor in the College of Medicine at the University of South Florida. We're talking about the covert 19 vaccines. Another question. A lot of people have If they received both doses of either the Madonna or the Visor vaccine. Does that mean that they won't be able to get infected? Does that mean that they're no longer at risk for passing it along to someone else? What exactly does that mean? Are they just protected from severe symptoms from the disease themselves? It's a great question, and right now we don't have a complete answer. There is a theoretical chance that the person who has to vaccines two doses of vaccine could still get cove it but just not really realize any symptoms from it because their response is gonna be so powerful and so robust and so strong. Them having cove. It's not gonna manifest with any clinical symptoms. You're not gonna get sick now, do it. Do we know if people are actually having asymptomatic Cove in and transmitting coded five vaccine? We don't know yet, as everybody knows, Thies studies, um we're done in a safe way. But in a fast way, and so, you know, to get vaccine out to people, you know, Termini safety was very important and the determining the most important thing, which is? Can we save lives and keep forgetting? Sick. So right now, the emergency use authorization is based on controlling symptomatic covert severe covitz symptoms. Hopefully, this means it is slowing down transmission as well. The data just not there to fully say that yet. And finally, last time we talked you had just received.

She said, Dear Doctor Liederman. My father does not feel very well anymore. Remember, a month ago, she told me was in excellent health. She wants to. Ah, have me consult on her dad. Her dad began a clinical try ally. And I won't say where. But a super duper pooper scooper, so famous hospital and he had a terrible reaction to it and round up in the hospital. He was released. Then he had eight year defibrillation, which means his heart went into Fib relations who wasn't pumping And then he was released and he was hospitalized again. 24 hours later with septic shock syndrome from an infected gall bladder. Remember, this is a man a month ago was in good health. Then he started a clinical try out a super duper pooper famous hospital, and he's been hospitalized at least three times and the bad reaction in the hospital and then again with H defibrillation and then septic shock. And now he has a drain in his gall bladder, and he's weaker and more frail. He's lost £30. And she wants to know if we're able to treat him in. The answer is yes. And I wish that were able to treat him back when he was diagnosed. Why the heck did he get a clinical trial? When you know that clinical trials have very low success rates very low. No one is cured with a Pancreas cancer with chemotherapy. Why would you put an older man through chemotherapy? A clinical trial? Clinical trial means really the patients like a guinea pig. They're trying the new treatment on the patient. He got so sick. He got septic and his heart started failing and he got infected. Gall bladder is now stuck.

They're paying these hospitals, millions of doctors and the chief Doctor making $7 million of the medical director making a million after hours and they're on the boards of these companies, and they're getting paid by the boards.

Who's getting paid by the hospital, maybe millions of dollars another, the boards of companies getting paid more millions of dollars, a responsible for the well being of the hospital responsible for the well being of the companies.

We're in the middle of the worst stretch of this pandemic for most of the country, and that's unlikely to change over the next few weeks. Can you describe for everyone what you've seen and had to deal with as a doctor consistently handling coronavirus patients? Yeah. Then I, You know, a life changing event for myself. But more importantly, for for so many families. This was obviously an unexpected pandemic. We you know, a year ago, we didn't know it existed. And you know now we, uh, life changed forever. So we know what I've seen, of course, is the number of people who have got very sick. The number of people you know who died. You know, there's one patient you will probably tell a story before. I think that, in fact, will be the most was 35 year old woman who, you know she came back. She was very, very sick, and I think she knew she was probably going to die. And she said to me, she said, You know, I've done everything right. Full kind of guy Tried. We're back. Try to stay inside. My daughter lost her dog and needed a place to live. And then she she moved in with me and you know, it's now she's waiting tables. I know that's right now it's from and I don't know what else I could have done. And I go. Well. She could have died. I don't know that there was another, You know easy. Yes, sir. And you know, and she did die. And there was, you know, I think every help for working talking is gonna have I'm free like that. Then I'm story also of a patient who was too young and I didn't really think I have any. You know what we call core? Their knees, in other words was unexpected. Like what? Why this person you know they don't have diabetes or hypertension, or, you know there are overweight, but they're very, very sick and they don't. They don't look like they're gonna do well and everything. I'll just say the last thing is, you know these what we call long haulers. Now we really don't know everything about your virus next very clear to us because we've got people that we're still seeing either in Emerge department. They come back or in the telemedicine health care system site where they're still suffering. You know, even though they were never nice, you don't show up in the data for guests, But they still have so much for tea and so much chest pain, And maybe they're even so requiring oxygen. Some of these are people who had no other medical problems. And we really don't know why, um what it was about this virus it may cause some people have such a long term impact long haulers. After Jason Wilson, associate medical director of the emergency Department of Tampa General Hospital and associate professor with the University of South Florida Health, Dr Wilson thank you so much. First of all, for the tremendous work that you're doing in treating covert 19 patients and also, thanks so much for sharing your personal experience of getting the vaccine as well, what happened to do it right. I hope that it helped other people go out and do the same thing. It's a very important you've actually get is just gonna get 1000 stuff and don't like Right. Finally, I'm joined by that sir Richard Pfeiffer, chief medical officer of Genesis Health Care to talk about the preparations underway at nursing homes and long term care facilities across the country as they get ready for the arrival of covert 19 vaccines. Dr Pfeiffer thanks for taking a few minutes to talk to us before we talk about vaccine distribution. I want to start with an overview of the damage the pandemic has done within nursing homes. And long term care facilities across the country. Tell us about what you've seen and heard. I take it be with you. And you know this has been such an incredibly difficult time for a nursing home residents. Their families, and for those two can for them in their own homes. There's some residents have been the hardest hit in society in general and in the health care system and that actress in the United States but all around the world Become residents are the most likely the cask or a virus because of their close carries in the living situation, and the most likely to have your case if they catch it and even die. In some cases, it really has been devastating and we are working so hard. If the end of this pandemic we can protect them, and it can't come a moment too soon. What if some of the biggest challenges been in trying to keep this Corona virus out of those kinds of facilities? Well, the challenges that actually evolved ever since the first nursing home outbreaks that occurred in the late winter at last year's almost 10 months ago, now at the time, One of the biggest challenges was that we didn't know who had corner virus and who didn't because we couldn't even test for it. That's changed so much, and now we have watched detecting at our disposal, but it took a lot of work to get up there. They also challenges with access to personal protective equipment like math and gallons, never shortages, But we work hard and make sure that we had protection at all times. And so those were great acoustically challenges along the way, and now we have the third leg of the stool. The next challenge is how do we get through the vaccination phases of pandemic Because that's what we needed you to get through the testing phase, the peopie face and now the vaccination faith, and this is an enormous undertaking. This is the biggest public health effort biggest vaccination campaign in human history, and we need to get through it in record time. And I want to get to that vaccination process in a moment real quick, Just taking a look at the situation now and as it's been for the past couple of months, the fear of these outbreaks within nursing homes like what we saw the very beginning of this pandemic. It led to a lot of them being closed off family members friends not being allowed in to see loved ones..
