Julie's mother died alone - tied to her bed - No one should have to endure this
COVID-19 has claimed over 80,000 Texan lives since the beginning of the pandemic. Our doctors and hospitals have changed from a place of healing to, for some, a place where recovery is the last priority. People are dying in hospitals because of policies that promote use of Remdesivir after the optimal time for treatment has passed. Instead of acting as it is meant to, Remdesivir has led to patients experiencing organ failure and death. Julie Johnson's mother was one of the many victims of hospital policies.
Julie's mom was being treated for COVID-19 by a local doctor, and reportedly improving well. Julie and her mom were sick at the same time, and Julie told me she was struggling to help her mom move around the house. On Monday, August 2nd, Julie called an ambulance to take her mom to the hospital. Julie told the driver she didn't want her mom taken to Baytown, but the ambulance was contracted with Baytown Methodist Hospital. She was assured that she would be able to transfer her mom to another hospital easily.
Once admitted for monitoring due to low oxygen content, her mom was given a five-day course of Remdesivir. Ativan was added to the cocktail to prevent her from resisting and being combative with the nurses. Julie requested Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, but the hospital staff laughed at her. The request for high dose vitamins was not fulfilled; instead, her mom was given what seemed like a child's dose. After a bag of convalescent plasma was provided, her mom seemed to be improving. The doctor did not respond to requests for another bag until 7 days had passed. By then, it was too late for the plasma to help her.
Julie's mom, despite being diabetic, having one kidney, and already experiencing liver issues, was given Remdesivir without her consent or knowledge. Julie's consent was needed for convalescent plasma and ventilation, but not for a drug that has high rates of organ failure and death when it is not used at the correct time. Hospital staff repeatedly pushed Julie to consent to a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR). One doctor told them that he would sign a DNR if she didn't consent. During a procedure performed in her hospital room, her mother's nurse called Julie's cousin and asked what Julie and her sister's wishes were and asked what would happen if that day was the day she died. Julie's mother died that day.
Julie's mother died alone, tied to her bed, and after being treated by a doctor that was not supposed to be treating her at all. Julie's mom had specifically written in her records that the doctor was not allowed to see her. Her medical records do not indicate that her mom provided consent for any of the procedures or medications. Julie was not allowed to talk to her mother on the phone.
If you or a loved one have or are currently enduring a similar situation, make sure you report the situation to the Texas Medical Board as soon as possible. As I have said before, my staff is able to help you locate the forms.
