All Whites were forced to meet a 43% Higher 'bar' for inpatient care.
Saint Anthony's Hospital chain (part of the SSM hospital chain, headquartered in Wisconsin); Issued a press statement yesterday. They admitted to a system of giving a 'headstart' preference to any colored person by using what was supposed to be an objective set of criteria for consistent and nondiscriminatory care to the communities they serve.
In Oklahoma, SSM has 5 medical centers which the SSM website lists in their 'Hospitals' division.
MiddleAmericaNews published an explanation of just how white Oklahomans may have been denied MonoClonal AntiBodies (mAbs) treatment and put at serious risk of death, while colored people were given this 'miracle treatment' and other care to shorten their illness by 'kickstarting' their bodies' immune system with the intravenous therapy.
How 'Woke' Discrimination Happened..
The usage of a points system for admissions may have started out as a well-intentioned means of safeguarding against discrimination. But by inserting a race-based advantage to certain favored ethnicities, the outcome is nothing short of discrimination defined.
Saint Anthony's corporate lawyers are asserting that early presumptions of Covid did justify the belief that listed ethnic minorities were more likely to have a more deadly risk.
But page 11 of the latest Oklahoma macro statistics clearly shows that infected males face a 41% higher death rate than infected females; yet that criteria is now not a factor in scoring who is more justified in being given inpatient services and care. SSM was scoring males a 2 point factor for admissions, but now is discontinuing the policy. Males should naturally be seen as a vulnerable group needing additional consideration to prevent their deaths, even though females appear to be contracting covid more than males.
It's akin to the data which shows that young adults in their 20s contract covid more than any other age, but are among the least likely to die from covid. So an 80 year old infected person is obviously more vulnerable and should be more quickly provided hospital services.
But Saint Anthony Hospitals appears to now be ignoring the plight of men and the macro data which clearly shows how Covid is much more deadly in a male body than a female body.
The only ethnic anomaly seems to show Asians have a slightly lower mortality risk. All other ethnicities appear to face a common risk. A broad suspicion is that Asians in the Wuhan laboratory designed this virus through 'gain of function' manipulation.
Here's how Middle America News details the admissions points disparity, in their report.
SSM Health’s announcement came after the Wisconsin Institute of Law and Liberty (W.I.L.L.) sent them a letter alleging racial discrimination in its policies to determine which patients receive life-saving treatment.
“While early versions of risk calculators across the nation appropriately included race and gender criteria based on initial outcomes, SSM Health has continued to evaluate and update our protocols weekly to reflect the most up-to-date clinical evidence available,” the company said in a statement.
“As a result, race and gender criteria are no longer utilized. The internal memo cited by WILL inadvertently referenced an expired calculator.”
In the letter, W.I.L.L. lawyers cited a December 31 email the company sent to physicians referencing a risk-scoring calculator, in which non-White patients received a 7-point head start.
“For example, a 50-year-old white female (15 points) suffering from obesity (1 point), asthma (1 point), and hypertension (1 point) would not be eligible for mAbs because she does not receive the 20-point minimum score under the calculator,” the letter stated. “On the other hand, an otherwise healthy 50-year-old African-American female (22 points), without any of these health risks, would be eligible.”
The attorneys argued that SSM’s risk-scoring calculator “is not only profoundly unethical and immoral, it is illegal.”
The timing of the change sparked questions from W.I.L.L. attorney Dan Lennington.
“We’re encouraged that SSM Health has dropped the racial classifications from their risk-scoring calculator,” Lennington said in a statement. “But if they updated this calculator before today, we have yet to see any communication to Wisconsin physicians on the matter. We still profoundly disagree with SSM’s position that race is an ‘appropriate’ consideration when treating patients for COVID.”
SSM Health is a Catholic not-for-profit healthcare company that operates facilities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
WILL never faulted the criteria of male scoring, but SSM decided on their own to ignore the added dangers males face when infected with Covid-19.
Religious leaders will also be expected to condemn the behavior of the medical corporations who tout Christian virtue as part of their marketing strategy, yet behave in clearly racist conduct.
