MEDICAL RECORDS STATE THAT FAMILY IS AGREEABLE TO A DNR ORDER FOR THEIR DAD, BUT THEY NEVER AGREED TO IT
While in the Hospital, Family is Not Allowed to See or Speak with Their Family Member’s Doctor
My dad, Tim Baker, was a business owner as well as an all-around AMAZING human being. He was known for loving big! He started having symptoms of Covid right after Thanksgiving 2021. While he was sick, his heart rate was high so we took him to the hospital. They shocked his heart and automatically admitted him because he tested positive for Covid.
While in the hospital, we could not see or speak with a doctor. We had to call daily at the nurses’ desk to see how he was doing. While in there, they pumped him full of 38 drugs, including Remdesivir, Fentanyl, Morphine, and Narcan. It says on the medical records that we were okay with a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR), but we were not.
We wanted him comfortable and to calm down. They took that as pump him full of Morphine and kill him. Our requests for his care always went unanswered. He was neglected and it was inhumane what they have done. We want justice for him and every other family who has been through this.
