A Nevada nurse is blowing the whistle on New York hospitals she has been working at amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Nicole Sirotek posted a video claiming that minority patients are being “murdered” due to gross negligence and mismanagement while being treated for the coronavirus in New York-area hospitals. Sirotek explained that she has witnessed everything from an anesthesiologist improperly intubating a patient, a resident using a defibrillator on a patient with a heart rate, and another patient being given the wrong insulin. All three patients in these cases ended up dying from staff negligence.
Sirotek says she’s tried reaching out to advocacy groups for minorities, but she was either put on hold or hung up on. She also stated that she tried speaking with hospital management to no avail, adding, “They don’t care what is happening to these people. … It’s like going into the f**king Twilight Zone.”
According to the New York Post, Sirotek was working at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens before being transferred to another facility once the above video surfaced.
