In a recent report ran by WPMG-TV and WPMG-FM, dozens of hospital staff from all over the state of Pennsylvania has reached out to our newsdesk citing similar claims, yet, UPMC is failing to do anything.
A healthcare worker at UPMC Horizon, north of Pittsburgh, reached out in grave-fear that their staff may be exposed to the SARS-2 virus, which transforms into COVID-19. COVID-19 attacks the lungs, causing mucus inside to solidify. This causes a pneumonia-like illness.
“The article you wrote about UPMC is more widespread than you realize.” stated the healthcare worker who reached out to our newsdesk. “Workers are being denied PPE, there is little to no screening. The patients are greeted by non medical staff and in many cases even after staff have raised concern about clear problems with their procedures, they have been told there was no concern.”
When WPMG-TV reached out to UPMC, our email server was blacklisted from their hospital, in a clear attempt to hide the truth of what lies behind every UPMC hospital.
The healthcare worker even went further toe express their fear, ” All of the staff have begged for equipment but were separated into “essential” and “non-essential”. Most are non-essential meaning you get no PPE, even though you will be in contact with the patient. “
” I’ve even witnessed the aids, their police officers and side emergency unit staff be denied PPE. Most of these staff being the first to contact sick patients as they enter. ” stated the healthcare worker.
As an anonymous source, we learned a fatal flaw what happens at UPMC. Reportedly, if the hospital found out who was speaking to the media, they would all be fired. ” There has many serious concerns voiced and we all have been brow beat into silence. It got so bad at horizon that staff have threatened to not show up to work. All of us will be terminated if UPMC find out.” said the scared worker.
When we asked how the process of bringing a patient into Horizon, we were worried ourselves when we learned of the procedure.
“Instead of a nurse meeting you when you enter to be triaged.. you are met with registration that is non medical, UPMC police which is provided no PPE and a greeter that isn’t medical staff most of the time. We are not provided PPE or even training to use it. We are told to follow the Wolf Infection Center. Someone with COVID could enter the facilities, walk around and expose anyone without being stopped.”
WPMG will continue to follow this developing story.
