Update on a recent protest and a reminder that the American medical system wasn't ready to deal with the impact of a historic pandemic that has been part of intelligence community scenarios for YEARS. Read more:

Nurses At Kansas City's HCA Hospitals Say They Aren't Getting Enough Protection From COVID-19

Rob Schulte, a registered nurse at Research Medical Center, was taking care of a patient with COVID-19 symptoms and wearing a surgical mask but thought he needed the additional protection of an N95 medical mask. So he asked his supervisor for permission to don one.

That's the hospital administration and the state's fault... if this story is even true.

It's the big medical supply brokers who are causing the mask problem.

Or, maybe during a crisis we don't get the gold standard of swapping your mask out every 5 minutes.

This is one nurse who asked and was NOT told there were no masks available, he was just told that he was not getting one in this particular case.

How could research be out of protective gear...I'd like to know how many covid cases it has actually seen. How many cases there presently. Where the fuck is the media in this town, why can't we get real information instead of vague innuendo.

Beware and be careful...the world is full of attention seeking whores.

This idiot can't be too concerned with wearing a mask - in the pic he is all smiles and the only one not wearing one. Like 9:53 said, an attention seeker. KCUR never asks the hard questions. Puddle deep journalism.

901 may be right.

Whose fault is this and why did it happen?

There were no strategic planners among the hospital administrations asking "Are we prepared?"

That said, God bless the frontline doctors and nurses! They are true servants. They deserve better than their administrations, as do the patients of course.

Thanks Donald Trump. Went to 6 rallies and play golf 7 times after the first cases came to the US. Everything he touches dies.

HCA is all about making profits for the CEO and his toadies.

HCA's Research Hospital has been a dump for many years. Dirty, stinky.

The nurses are wonderful to the patients but the Administrators don't give them a clean facility or clean cafeteria to work at.

The guys transporting patients to and from their room are rough with patients and appear not to give a rats ass about what they are doing. No compassion for the patients.

I'm not surprised HCA is out of medical masks, N95 masks, gloves etc. because the Administration is so cheap and probably did not have an adequate inventory.

The only saving grace for the POS hospital is the nurses who are very compassionate to the patients. Most of the nurses are young, fresh out of nursing school to save HCA money.

I even saw homeless people hanging out in the family waiting rooms which is not sanitary either. Research Hospital is just a gross facility.

^^and how do you know they didn't have family there you worthless and inhuman prick?

I read about a home-made mask on the facebooks, its better than N95's, its like N98 or more. You get saran wrap and two big rubber bands and strap it to your face. I don't know why I'm feeling so light headed though.

2:54 - Family generally are not filthy single men, wearing filthy three layers of coats, with a backback of their worldly belongings and a dirty sleeping bag while reeking of alcohol.

5:48 - minimum wage security guard ranting and raving because he allows anyone and everyone into Research Hospital. Maybe become a Mall Cop?

Gee, if only the self proclaimed wartime president had a Defense Production Act that he could utilize to get companies to make these products in an emergency situation.

Instead, Trump says now he is only the backup. I'd call it leading from behind, but that would be too charitable. He's AWOL and surrendered. Cadet Bonespurs strikes again.

Quit and save yourself! once this is all over and many of the Doctors and nurses who stayed to be hero's die from this, you can easily find another job and demand more money when you get your new job. You can then use the extra money to stockpile your own PPE when the next time this happens and it will.
