Have any of you heard about this?? This is copied from Abigail Ogle’s FB post:

MERCY HOSPITAL RESPONDS TO ONLINE ATTACKS: ICU is on lockdown indefinitely. ER has 24/7 security. Let's be better. This was a letter sent to Mercy employees.

"Dear co-workers, It has been another difficult week at Mercy Oklahoma City. We know many of you have seen the social media attacks against our hospital and our co-workers from a local organization - the same group that protested on our campus earlier this week. You deserve to know what is going on. We are committed to transparency and sharing as many details as possible. There is truly nothing more important to us than your safety. We have a team monitoring these online attacks in real time. Every level of our ministry is deeply concerned and committed to doing whatever it takes to protect our co-workers against these baseless attacks. We are already pursuing a restraining order and additional legal action against this group.

The Oklahoma City Police Department and Edmond Police Department have been wonderful, supportive community partners. Many of the same Oklahoma City officers have been on campus with us throughout the week, and we are grateful for their support. Additional Mercy security co-workers and uniformed police officers will be visible in the hospital and on campus around the clock for the foreseeable future. Security will also be more present at some of our Mercy Clinic locations that were named online. The ICU is locked down until further notice. Security will be posted at the ER entrance 24/7 and is continuously rounding throughout the hospital. Individualized security plans are in place to protect co-workers who have been threatened online. If you feel uncomfortable walking to and from your car or see something or someone suspicious on the Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City campus, please call Mercy Security. If you are at a Mercy Clinic location or another Mercy campus and see something suspicious, call 911 and get to a secure location.

It’s important that you know every one of the claims made against our hospital and co-workers are categorically untrue. Here’s what you should be certain of: • There is no such thing as a Fauci protocol. • There are no government vouchers for using certain medications or treatments for our patients with COVID-19. • We do not make money from the heartbreaking deaths of our patients. • And our co-workers are not murderers. You all are incredible, devoted caregivers who respond to a calling to dedicate your lives to healing the sick. You have endured enough during the past two years, and we will not stand by and allow you to be verbally attacked. We are proud to serve with you.

We know you are tired and weary, but please try your best to put these baseless claims out of your mind. Remember, you are called to serve our patients and each other. We are praying for peace and protection over each of you, as well as the protection of all our patients and visitors, while we take action on your behalf. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. - Romans 15:13"

I have known a few professions that drew sadistic or psychopathic personalities and a lot of folks in the medical profession from EMTs to hospice nurses to doctors and veterinarians. I have never known anyone that didnt truly have a drive to help others at all costs go through the effort, stress, and grueling hours to be in any part of the medical profession.

I guess there could be an exception here or there but I would confidently wager a lot of money that it is extremely rare.

Yeah some goofball preacher is saying Mercy is a deathcamp and killing his parishioners deliberately.
Yea the preacher would rather kill them himself. Seriously I have known more more preachers ready to kill than medical people, and even murderous preachers are rare.

Mercy treated me like crap when I had covid and after too. Doesnt surprise me they got threats. They most certainly were trying to follow fed protocol when I went in. I left and luckily got better at home.

My cousin has been on a ventilator at Mercy for over 45 days. He ain’t coming out alive.

In my conspiracy theory mind, I tend to believe enumerating and publicly denying something probably means there’s at least some truth to it. :anyone:
