Dr. Susan Moore died today from COVID, but HOW she died is unacceptable. She posted a video to Facebook from an Indiana hospital days before her death about mistreatment. "This is how black people get killed when you send them home and they don't know how to fight for themselves" https://t.co/iSF8rs7qmI pic.twitter.com/3a8qE6DhN3— Cleavon MD (@Cleavon_MD) December 22, 2020
CBS News: “I don’t trust this hospital,” Dr. Susan Moore said from her hospital bed in Indiana, an oxygen tube hooked up to her nose. “That is not how you treat patients.”
Is this the Dr. Eric A. Bannec that is responsible for Dr. Susan Moore’s death? If so these are his ratings. He needs to not be a doctor anymore and in my opinion possibly jailed. pic.twitter.com/ccxCO6pipz— TashLoveArter (@TashLoveArter) December 23, 2020
Moore tested positive for the coronavirus on November 29 and said her symptoms included a high respiratory rate, high heart rate, high fever and coughing up blood.
She described the uphill battle she faced in getting treatment from White doctors and nurses in the hospital, including begging for the antiviral drug Remdesivir, waiting hours for pain medication, and demanding a CT scan of her chest to prove her pain was real.
This is Dr. Susan Moore.— Leah McElrath 🏳️🌈 (@leahmcelrath) December 22, 2020
She posted a FB video reporting denial of adequate treatment for COVID-19 and pain management by white medical staff at @IU_Health and pleading for help.
She was discharged.
After readmission to a different hospital, she died.https://t.co/PnZOwG3bA5 pic.twitter.com/C66WQPNJtP
