Nevada Nurse in NYC: COVID is NOT Killing People – They’re Being Murdered

Another nurse who has traveled to New York City to help with treating COVID-19 patients has gone public, describing the horrors she is seeing in how patients are being treated. Nicole Sirotek is reported to be from Nevada, and she expressed her frustrations in a Facebook Live broadcast, apparently Sunday, May 3rd. Her video and Facebook Page appear to have been removed by Facebook Monday morning, although the video has surfaced elsewhere. While trying to hold back her tears, she claims: “Nobody is listening. They don’t care what is happening to these people. They don’t. I’m literally coming here every day and watching them kill them.” She explains that everyone coming into her hospital, which she claims is "in the hood," is labeled as a COVID patient, but that they are not dying from COVID, but from poor medical care. She claims that every time she tries to advocate for her patients because they are receiving poor medical care, that they reassign the patient to someone else. Because her patients are minorities, Latinos at the first hospital she was at, and Blacks at her current assignment, she has even tried to reach out to advocacy groups who specialize in advocating for these minority groups, but no one seems to want to listen to her. 100% of her patients have died, and she makes it clear that although she is not a doctor, she is sure that these patients are not getting the proper treatment they deserve. She claims that she has even been assigned to care for patients that are already dead, because medical personnel are not even using disposable stethoscopes to verify that they are still alive. She actually compared what was going on in this hospital to Nazi Germany in the past: "This is going to be kind of an extreme example, but this is really the only thing I can come up with. It’s like if we were in Nazi Germany and they were like, taking the Jews to go put them in a gas chamber. I’m the one there saying like, 'Hey, this is not good, this is bad, this is wrong, we should not be doing this.' Then everyone tells me 'hang in there, you’re doing a great job, you can’t save everybody. You’re amazing, you’re a great nurse.'"
