Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis this week signed the Sunshine State’s “No Patient Left Alone Act,” guaranteeing that Floridians can have their loved ones with them when they are hospitalized, ill or in long-term care.
What’s truly unbelievable is that this needed to be legislated. The importance of family visits was always considered common sense. It was key to compassionate care.
Unfortunately, common sense was sacrificed on the altar of hysteria during the pandemic.
Panicked Democrats and morons at the CDC turned America’s nursing homes, hospitals and hospice centers into lonely outposts for the infirm. Eventually, these isolated hellholes became death chambers where authorities imprisoned elderly patients – alone – for more than a year.
Put a prisoner in solitary confinement and you’re committing a human rights atrocity. Yet “healthcare” providers happily locked nursing home residents in their rooms for a year or more. Many dementia patients died – alone – in the fetal position, without a visitor or a hug in months. Families watched their loved ones die over Zoom and then were forbidden by idiot governors to hold funerals.
Pandemic rules regarding the sick and elderly were the most heartless and inhumane of all of the Fauci-inspired torments visited upon Americans.
TV Meteorologist Janice Dean, who relentlessly pursued New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo after her in-laws died in New York nursing homes, said this week that her husband was allowed to see his parents in their dying days only through glass.
A storm of similar sickening stories quickly emerged.
Now Florida has legislated against it.
Under our new law, never again will Florida families be denied the right to visit a loved one in the hospital.

Every state should follow suit.
Shame on America and every coward who went along with this insanity. There needs to be a day of reckoning for the sadists who signed on to such cruel measures.
Let that day be November 8th. Don’t vote for anyone who supported the lockdowns. They deserve a couple of years in solitary, not public office.
