STATES COLLUDE WITH HOSPITALS OVER COVID DEATHS
Investigations protect financial interests of medical institutions
Imagine you’re a grieving parent after the untimely death of your teenaged daughter. Upon review of the medical records you find questionable actions, biases and downright illegal activity by physicians and nurses. Things like giving a sedative to the patient for four days when the package insert says it shouldn’t be administered longer than 24 hours; or finding out your daughter could have been given other medicines that may have saved her, but a doctor determined she didn’t qualify for such medicine; and seeing that one doctor took it upon himself to write a Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR) order on her life without anyone’s consent.
Perhaps you would think an investigation is in order and file formal complaints against both the hospital and doctor in question.
That’s exactly what Scott Schara did after his 19-year-old daughter, Grace, died at St. Elizabeth’s hospital in Appleton, Wisconsin on Oct. 13, 2021. He wanted answers and found many of them within the 300-plus pages of medical records he originally combed through. What he found was bias, withholding of some medications that would have helped, and outright lies.
Calling for a formal investigation through the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) related to the doctor, and the Department of Health Services (DHS) related to the hospital, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) related to the disability violations, Schara hoped their investigations would bring forth truth, but what he discovered was much more shocking.
“They’re all in on it,” Schara said. “DHS delegated the investigation to Centers for Medicare and Medicate Services (CMS). CMS’ entire investigation was a sham. They are not interested in the uncovering of facts, but are concerned about protecting doctors and hospitals. When the investigative body is protecting the institutions they’re supposed to be investigating, how can anyone think there will be justice? They didn’t even investigate the illegal DNR order Dr. Gavin Shokar, M.D., put on Grace’s life. That’s because the government provides the funds that hospitals receive, while the investigative bodies also are funded by the government and they have no motivation to rock the boat.”
In the response provided to the complaint Schara filed against Ascension NE Wisconsin – St. Elizabeth’s Campus for the death of Grace Schara, CMS concluded the Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) determined on January 20, 2022 that the provider met the Conditions of Patient Rights and Nursing Services.
This “investigation” consisted of a one-time site visit by CMS, which determined nothing was amiss in the actions undertaken by medical personnel or the administration at St. Elizabeth’s. However, various CMS whistleblowers exposed a COVID bonus-payments-to-hospitals scheme, which provides upwards of $300,000 for each COVID-positive ICU patient, including bonuses for placing them on ventilators and using remdesivir, a drug that has been proven to cause organ failure.
In a letter by The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS), it said they “conducted a thorough review of the treatment records. They did not find a violation of minimal competency standards in the care rendered. They expressed condolences for this family’s loss.”
“The state ‘investigators’ accepted lies without doing an investigation in order to look like they did their job,” Schara said.
Knowing now how the system works, it’s not surprising to Schara that doctors had strong biases against anyone who wouldn’t conform to their protocols. He saw it over and over again, not only in the original 300 pages of medical records, but in the additional 950 pages received after a medical malpractice nurse suggested there were probably about 1,000 pages missing, despite Schara asking for all medical records to be provided in his original request. It’s yet another example of the system protecting itself.
An Example of Money Motivation
Almost a year ago, Schara understood that protocols utilized by hospitals and physicians weren’t conducive to the recuperation of the patient, and oftentimes were detrimental. On Grace’s first day in the hospital, a doctor recommended the drug “tocilizumab” be administered. Schara decided to do research on the drug before it would have been given to his daughter, and he found that tocilizumab’s trial had an unfavorable effect.
“I researched the drug and told the doctor the following morning that the New England Journal of Medicine study showed the placebo group did better than the test subjects and the drug has several substantial side effects. He was angry with me over this sharing of the report, which should have been a clue for me as to how the care of my daughter was going to proceed, but I unfortunately just thought it was this lone doctor’s ego.”
The New England Journal of Medicine study, which doesn’t take into account the drug’s side effects, concluded: “In this trial involving hospitalized patients with severe Covid-19 pneumonia, we found no significant difference in clinical status between the tocilizumab group and the placebo group at day 28.”
One possible reason for suggesting the drug’s use, Schara believes, is its price tag of more than $22,000 per dose.
“Tocilzumab and remdesivir both are extremely expensive compared to drugs such as ivermectin, which is pennies in comparison,” Schara said. “Both drugs in clinical trials showed harm to patients. What could be the motivation to utilize these drugs other than financial benefit?”
Biases Clear: Anyone Following Other Protocols Deserves to Die
The biases in the doctor’s reports were clear: unvaccinated, Christian, and Down syndrome. All three factors were present time and again, mentioning that Grace had Down syndrome 36 times in the 22 reports. Some examples of doctors’ bias:
· “They followed the Frontline Doctors misinformation campaign and placed her on some ivermectin and vitamins and all that stuff.”
· Another report later mentioned the fact they went to a Christian concert, then states, “The patient’s family was following the misinformation of the frontline physicians [sic] with their vitamin cocktails and ivermectin, but clearly that did not really help her.”
· “She is not vaccinated and he [Scott Schara] does not go into details on why that is.”
· “Unfortunately, I think the patient probably would not be here if she has [sic] been fully vaccinated.”
Despite knowing that COVID-19 vaccines didn’t prevent infection or transmission, which was clearly evident throughout the pandemic as vaccinated patients were sick with COVID so often the health authorities eliminated the term “breakthrough infections,” Grace and her family were treated by St. Elizabeth’s as if they were the reason the disease existed in the first place.
“They talked down to me and I was treated like someone in the room to only provide comfort to my daughter. There’s a lot more to being an advocate. When I challenged what I saw, the response was to escort me out with an armed guard.”
The State continues to protect the hospitals, with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Medical Examining Board stonewalling an independent investigative journalist looking into the matter of the DNR orders being given without consent, not only in Grace’s case, but many others.
In Schara’s complaint against Shokar, the facts are simple: Shokar wrote the DNR order inconsistent with Wisconsin Stat. §§ 154.19(1)(c) and (d)., which states a DNR order must be in writing and signed by the patient, guardian, or health care agent. Grace’s was not approved by anyone.
DSPS also investigated Shokar, finding that he did nothing wrong in his duties, despite the fact he ordered and utilized three powerful, contraindicated drugs; and wrote the DNR order without family consent a mere eight minutes after giving Grace a near maximum dose of the sedative Precedex. Their letter states, “The details of the complaint were reviewed and evaluated by a screening panel made up of members of the regulatory authority for the profession and/or department attorney. Based on that review and evaluation of the complaint and other materials, a decision has been made that the information presented does not warrant further investigation.”
In a confidential letter obtained by Schara, Shokar’s attorney provided excuses for every concern and the DSPS accepted the letter as the only “evidence” allowed.
From bias demonstrated repeatedly by physicians, to recommendations of utilizing experimental, outlandishly expensive drugs; to dishonest, sham investigations; to a complete disregard of providing information to journalists, the entire system feeds off itself. Regulatory agencies protect those they are supposed to oversee and the government encourages the incestuous relationship through funding both to federal agencies and hospitals.
Schara has many regrets about Grace’s time at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital besides the fact the lack of care she received there led to her death.
“I regret admitting Grace to the hospital in the first place instead of getting an oxygen tank and going home,” Schara said. “I regret that I saw low oxygen as an emergency vs. trusting God. I regret that I trusted the white coats and didn’t take her out of there when I suspected they didn’t have Grace’s best interest at heart. They were concerned about their bottom line – bonuses for prescribing certain meds, bonuses for getting her on a ventilator (which didn’t happen), bonuses for making her an ICU patient, and finally, a bonus for her death. I regret seeing their behavior and allowing them to touch her at all. The kicker is, our federal and state governments condone all of these actions. That needs to change.”
