Nurse: VA Medical Staff Stole
Morphine From Dying Patients

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/8/2014 9:42:51 AM

Vials of morphine were systemically stolen from a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center and replaced with water and saline so that dying veterans got the wrong treatments, a longtime VA nurse told The Daily Caller. “A nurse taking care of hospice patients over the past year had been diverting vials of morphine,” said Valerie Riviello, a 28-year veteran nurse at the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center in Albany, New York. “Those patients that were dying in hospice were not getting their intended pain medication.” Management became aware of the recurring theft without reporting it to higher levels of

More like a federal organized crime facility than a medical facility.

Drugs are stolen, true, but a little secret: hospitals across the U.S. are filled with thieves that will take the cash out of your purse while you are under.

No end to the suffering of those who gave selflessly to protect our safety and freedom. May God give them comfort. Time to give them vouchers to go elsewhere for care.

This isn´t confined just to VA hospitals..... it is one of the reasons that if all possible, you need a family member with you 24/7 in the hospital to ensure you get the nursing care you need.

Criminal.

It´s not just drugs, it´s credit cards, your ID, cash and whatever they can steal.
They are either hooked or selling it.

The moral values in this country are sinking daily. It´s those darn numbers. More of them and less of you.

Dr. Thos. Frieden, at every turn in his appearances — yesterday, when he went before the cameras for the first time about the Texas case, and since — has seemed determined to understate the problem where he should be sounding an alarm.

AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

This story just keeps getting worse. Dallas Judge Clay Jenkins “requested” that the family of Thomas Eric Duncan not leave their apartment — the same one he stayed with them in — to avoid exposing anyone else to the Ebola virus. They left anyway. Judge Jenkins has now ordered them to stay home or face prosecution. The family of the Texas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan have been ordered to stay in their home after violating official’s initial request not to leave. “There were violations of the request to not leave their premises,” Dallas judge Clay Jenkins said of the

As many as eighty (80) people may have had contact with the Liberian Ebola patient who is now is isolation at a Texas hospital, Dallas health officials told MSNBC on Thursday. (snip) "The CDC over the last several weeks to months have been really putting out the message that when people come in with symptoms that are compatible with Ebola, that it´s important to ask for a travel history, and to factor that into what your decision is. Unfortunately that did not happen in this case. I think we just need to put that behind us, and look ahead --

The Ebola patient being treated in Texas told authorities he flew part of his trip on United Airlines, a spokesperson for the airline said, citing information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The airline believes the patient flew from Brussels to Washington Dulles and then from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth on September 20, the spokesperson said. "The director of the CDC has stated there is ´zero risk of transmission´ on any flight on which the patient flew because he was not symptomatic until several days after his trip and could not have been contagious on the dates he

A Brooklyn Technical HS? teacher who called a female student his “little sex slave” and said she could give him a “striptease” any time should not be fired, a state appeals court ruled. The panel of judges upheld the unpaid, six-month suspension of Steven Ostrin, a once-popular social studies teacher at Tech, which has since been rocked by the arrest of another teacher, accused of having sexual relationships with as many as seven female students. “The hearing officer made clear that the case turned entirely on the credibility of the witnesses and such determinations ‘are largely unreviewable,’” the judges said

Talk radio host Laura Ingraham criticized President Obama for failing to take necessary action to prevent the Ebola virus from spreading to the US on Wednesday. "I believe our leaders’ first and foremost obligation is to protect the security of our country. Why does this seem so difficult for these people to do?" she wondered. She argued that not allowing flights from Sierra Leone and Liberia “seems fairly obvious,” given similar flight bans implemented in France and the UK, “especially when the President was assuring us that this could be contained and would not spread in the United States, one

HOUSTON, Texas -- Liberian government officials have identified the patient who brought the Ebola virus to the United States as Thomas Eric Duncan. Duncan lives in Monrovia and is said to be in his mid-forties. Duncan is the first person to bring an undiagnosed case of Ebola to the United States. Duncan had direct contact with an Ebola patient in Liberia shortly before his departure to the United States according to a report on Wednesday in the New York Times by Norimitsu Onishi. Duncan helped to carry a pregnant woman who was near death from the Ebola virus back to

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) talks to a lot of people in the course of doing his job, but for some reason, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) isn’t one of them, how very curious. “I’ve not talked to him since he’s been elected,” Boehner revealed in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, and left it at that. Cruz was elected in 2012 and played a major role in recent events that threatened to derail Boehner’s agenda, like the times Cruz attempted to hijack down the federal government over Obamacare, the debt ceiling, border patrol, etc. Boehner didn’t elaborate further, according to
