In a rather sad, ironic turn of events, Jewish doctors and nurses at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh had to turn a blind eye to the anti-Semitism that brought them to their newest patient, 46-year-old Robert Bowers. . .
“He was taken to my hospital and he’s shouting, ‘I want to kill all the Jews,’” said Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, president of Allegheny General Hospital and a member of the Tree of Life Synagogue, Fox News reported. “The first three people who took care of him were Jewish.”
One of the nurses who came to Bowers’ aid, was a Jewish nurse whose father is a Rabbi. . .
Cohen had a brief conversation with Bowers to ask him if he was in pain or needed anything. Bowers told Cohen he was fine and then asked who the doctor was.
“I said I’m Dr. Cohen, president of the hospital. Then I turned around and left,” he said. “The FBI agent who was guarding him said, ‘I don’t know if I could have done that.’ And I said, ‘If you were in my shoes, I’m sure you could.’” (Read more from “Jewish Doctors, Nurses Put Their Personal Feelings Aside to Help Save Synagogue Shooter’s Life” HERE)
