My wife just resigned from the El Camino Hospital Foundation Board
She asked them if they would talk to me. They refused.
My wife just resigned from the board of the El Camino Hospital Foundation.
Obviously, my views on how hospitals have been behaving during this pandemic had a major influence on her decision.
Hospitals should be advocates for patient care and superior outcomes, not following government narratives.
For example, I tried to help save the life of the husband of a friend who was hospitalized at El Camino by suggesting to the doctors that cyproheptadine (an antihistamine) has been life saving for hospitalized COVID patients. I sent the case series showing the transformative effect: people who were very sick with COVID turned around within 24 hours. They could offer no reason for not considering the drug other than it wasn’t on their government narrative protocol. They not only refused to offer it to the patient as an option, but instead, they actually convinced the patient to refuse the drug! He was finally released weeks later, but he was close to dying. For more info on cyproheptadine, see this article or this tweet by Fareed Jalali.
My wife suggested that El Camino Hospital infectious disease specialists meet with me to discuss my views. After all, I am one of the biggest “misinformation superspreaders” on Earth. Check out that search result:
So if they can show I’m wrong, they would help save lives by discrediting me and showing the world how I got it wrong.
As expected, El Camino refused the offer.
Apparently, they believe that differences are best resolved by ignoring people who disagree with them.
That’s unfortunate, but that seems to be the way the game is played.
It’s sad that this important op-ed from UCSF Professor Vinay Prasad is ignored by the medical community:
Perhaps someone at El Camino Hospital could author a rebuttal op-ed entitled, “Scientists who express different views on Covid-19 should be demonized, not heard.” The El Camino Hospital op-ed could cite the peer-reviewed literature showing that demonizing people you disagree with results in superior health outcomes.
What do you think?
In the meantime, I have emailed the CEO and the CMO of El Camino Hospital a copy of this article and an offer to meet. I will let you know what happens.
