    It is the usual response from the hospital management and I would not expect a different response from this administration. I just wish that the governor apply the mentality he had on building the TCF wall on our health care system. He wanted to build the wall, he did not wait any longer but instruct the companies to start building. We need someone who can prioritize our health as one of the top 3 must do.

      The management is not the problem ! Preventing hospital visits should be another way of seeing it ! & please it does not take 7 family members to take care of an able walking patient that’s only there because he’s been coughing and sneezing for the past 4 hours ! ✌️
