Fair warning, this is one of the hardest videos you will ever watch.
The video, which was only recently released, shows an alarming lack of regard for human life, especially in a healthcare setting specifically tasked with helping preserve it. “In 43 years in nursing, I have never seen such disregard for human life in a healthcare setting, is what I witnessed,” retired nursing professor Elaine Harris told reporters. after watching the video.
The man, 89-year-old James Dempsey, is not just any man. He’s a World War II veteran who risked his life to fight the evil of all evils in what is likely the most important, consequential, world event of our time. If it weren’t for people like Dempsey, the world could be a very, very different place today.
Back in 2014, Dempsey was under the care of Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation, when he began struggling to breathe. Gasping for air and fighting through pain, Dempsey cries out for help at least six times, as captured on a hidden video camera that the nurses clearly were unaware of.
“Help me! Help me! I can’t breathe!” Dempsey can be heard calling out, while the nurses ignore the call light for an agonizing stretch of time. But it gets even worse, as when nurses finally do arrive on the scene and have trouble fumbling around with the oxygen machine, they begin laughing. A family is literally trusting this facility to watch over their loved one and give them the best care possible, and instead they received a mockery of human life. (Read more from “‘Help Me! Help Me!
