Olivia Guidry, a registered nurse in the ER at Ochsner Lafayette General Hospital in Louisiana should have been fired.
How can a trained medical professional — with a heart issue — work in an emergency room and then go on social media and state that vaccines and COVID-19 tests were fake (a lie), change your DNA forever (a lie) and urge people not to get vaccinated during a pandemic?
She did that and more, but was not fired.
Instead, nature fired her — she got COVID-19 and died, even though a vaccination months ago would almost undoubtedly have saved her from being very sick, let alone dying in misery.
The story reporting her death is a puff piece that plays up how beloved she was as a nurse. Ironically, one of her co-workers refers to her smile as contagious.
But this is not fun and games. People with anti-scientific beliefs have every right to hold those beliefs, but do not have every right to be employed in hospitals.
