Glenn Beck To Reveal Hospital Malpractice

with one comment

After an exhaustive national tour promoting his new best seller, An Inconvenient Book, Glenn Beck ends up in a life-threatening nightmare of a surgery. I knew he had gotten sick earlier this week, but that’s Glenn, over the top. I’m so sorry that I didn’t know how sick he truly was.

Glenn Beck’s video is shocking, scary, and an example of what is to come if we allow universal medical treatment in our country without solving the problems. Listening to and watching Glenn, a celebrity superstar talk about his hospital treatment, his suicidal emotions, with tears in his eyes, is nerve-wracking.

As a mother, who experienced her own son’s horrible medical treatment at a Florida hospital, I believe Glenn. My son was being treated for an infected ruptured appendicitis that was nearly fatal because the ER made him wait for 12 hours before seeing him, and the complications of cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection at a Florida hospital that could have also killed him. The ER staff, the nurses could have cared less about my son’s symptoms and excruciating pain while the cleaning crew cared more about noisily emptying empty waste baskets while my son tried to sleep. I finally had to put the empty garbage pail outside in the hallway just so my son could rest.

I still don’t know the reason for Glenn’s hospitalization and eventual surgery, but I will be listening to Glenn’s show on Monday morning and will hopefully see him on Monday night. He doesn’t look like he should be doing either, but that’s Glenn. He feels compelled to inform the public about the wrongs in our society. Even if it kills him. Keep him in your prayers.
