An Alberta doctor recently revealed that contrary to the public announcement of Premier Jason Kenney last week regarding the still rising cases of COVID-19 in the province, the numbers are, in fact, going down.
Dr. Gary Davidson, an ER doctor assigned in Red Deer, disclosed in a public gathering last Sunday that there is something off about the seemingly random conduct of lockdowns allegedly attributed to the surge of test-positive residents in Alberta.
As early as September 15, Davidson related he noticed that the number of patients admitted in both his and another hospital located in the province is plummeting. He added that patient numbers were so low, he “had zero patients for about three hours” during his last shift.
Davidson shared his observation with a political friend and asked if the province would impose another lockdown. He then divulged that as soon as the admittance numbers drop, “they put us in a lockdown, so it looks like the lockdown fixed everything.” The ER doctor then stressed that “they’ve been doing this every time, and I know that because I see the numbers.”
Moreover, Davidson shared that there may be a crisis in hospitals these days. A crisis that began long ago before COVID-19 got into the picture. A concern that he believes started under the administration of Premier Rachel Notley six years back.
The Red Deer ER doctor highlighted a significant shortage of nursing staff not just in Alberta but also in other provinces. Apart from closing several beds in the hospital he is working in, which “led to long wait times in emergency,” this shortage also caused unexpected “redirection” of patients to smaller hospitals in the region.
“We can’t do that. We can’t send a heart attack to Lacombe,” Davidson said. “They send them to us. But this is what we were doing because we had no staff.” He also explained that this shortage of staff is not even remotely related to COVID-19.
“It’s been going on for six years, and it (COVID-19) was created,” Davidson emphasized. “We have a crisis because we have no staff because our staff quit because they are burnt out.”
And to make things even worse, nursing staff who chose to stay amid this hospital crisis are now forced to quit if they don’t want to be vaccinated against the virus. The doctor shared the experience of a senior nurse who just up and left because a colleague of Davidson’s called her a “waste of skin” because she was not getting the COVID-19 shots.
Additionally, Davidson disclosed that a friend of his “in the know” shared that more than 400 critical care and ICU staff have already quit across Alberta. He also related the missing 2,500 ventilators belonging to the province that nobody seems to know where they might be.
When asked to share their say about the matter, the AHS just brushed off Davidson’s claims as false and hearsay.
