Episode 19: Dr. Jill Vecchio

Why does Colorado’s COVID-19/Wuhan Virus updated “Standard of Care” decree issued on April 5, 2020, not include the patient or family representative nor a patient advocate? Does a patient advocate advocate for the patient or are they typically representing the hospital’s best interests? Dr. Jill explains the difference between Socrates’ Hippocratic Oath and Plato’s view of rationing limited resources. Jill shares a golden nugget of wisdom: “In order for government Politicians, Bureaucrats and Interested Parties (PBI’s) to take care of you, they will want to take control of you.”

Vaccination Bill Still on the Table?

The Colorado Legislature returned to the Capitol to resume business on Tuesday, May 26, in this unprecedented legislative session. Author, active citizen and mother, Heather Lahdenpera explains, “According to Joint Rule 44, only “mission critical bills” are to move forward. In addition, Colorado faces a $3.3 billion shortfall due to COVID-19. The state will have 25% less money than it had to work with last year. This means that any bill with a fiscal note should be tabled.” Despite these critical guidelines and issues, Representative Kyle Mullica has been out doing PR for his vaccination bill, SB 163. Heather Lahdenpera point out that SB 163 is NOT mission critical and has a fiscal note which the state cannot afford.
