Hospital Exec: Trump Supporters With Coronavirus Should Surrender Ventilators and Die
The executive previously worked for Hillary Clinton
A top medical executive, who demanded that supporters of President Donald Trump who are critically ill with the coronavirus give up their ventilators, has been fired.
The executive at Buffalo hospital, Laura Krolczyk, wrote:
"Trump supporters need to pledge to give up their ventilators for someone else ... and not go to the hospital."
Krolczyk was the vice president for external affairs for the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, and had previously worked for Hillary Clinton.
She also said that Trump supporters should "barricade themselves" inside churches to ride out the coronavirus.
"Also, don't cash your stimulus check. It's all a hoax," Krolczyk wrote.
"Chew some ibuprofen and be on with your day," she added.
Following her outburst, Krolczyk was placed on administrative leave before being terminated over the comments, Buffalo News reported.
Roswell Park relased a statement following Krolczyk's firing, WGRZ-TV reported:
"This employee was terminated today [Saturday] after our Human Resources team concluded its investigation.
"We followed standard procedure, which required that we gather and verify relevant information before taking any disciplinary action.
"Dr. Johnson and her team responded with swift and appropriate action.
"We have always been and continue to be a center serving everyone who needs us.
"That is core to our mission, our culture, and the experience our patients and families can expect every day.
"This behavior is not tolerated at Roswell Park.
"If any team members act in a way that does not accord with that commitment, we will take swift and appropriate action, just as we did in this instance."
