No, this cry is not coming from Auschwitz, where Dr. Mengele regularly killed people whose “lives were not worth living.” Dr. Syed Hossain is ostensibly not a dedicated murderer, although after reading this article you may have your doubts. But like Dr. Mengele, Dr. Hossain is functioning in a system which increasingly disregards the sanctity of human life and often grants immunity to medical professionals for depraved acts of negligence.
“Scott C.” was sent to a nursing home in Los Angeles following an evaluation at White Memorial Hospital which revealed he had hydrocephalus, a condition that may be caused by a blow to the head and is treatable through surgical intervention. A shunt is placed in the head in order to drain off the fluid.
However, the attending doctor at White Memorial, a Dr. Ho, did not suggest any treatment for Scott, who at age 70 was experiencing effects of what is colloquially termed “water on the brain.” The effects include memory loss and gait problems. Without treatment, the prognosis is dim and he can expect increasing memory and gait issues, culminating in death.
A Dr. Syed Hossain is listed as Scott’s physician. After being vetted and approved as an authorized person who may receive otherwise private medical information about a patient, I attempted to reach Dr. Hossain. The nursing home administrator kindly provided Dr. Hossain’s cell number.
An irritated Dr. Hossain answered my first call, and directed me to call his office, which I did. He did not return the call. I called a second time and was again shuffled off. I also reached out to Mental Health Advocacy, a long-standing law firm in Los Angeles which purportedly serves a disabled population. After going through an initial screening process, I was assigned to an attorney named Howard Canton.
Canton clearly was aversive to something about this case. We spoke a couple of times. The conversations were punctuated by long, drawn out silences, as Howard Canton appeared to not want to discuss this matter. Eventually, he promised to check some things out and get back to me. And that is the very last I heard from him.
Concerned for my friend’s life, I filed a formal grievance against Mr. Canton. Mental Health Advocacy has chosen to circle the wagons around attorney Canton. A response to my grievance by a colleague assured me that Canton had given me legal advice. When asked what advice he gave me, however, attorney Pavritha Menon couldn’t come up with anything of substance or relevance.
I sent several invitations to Jenny Farrell, the head of MHA, to call me to discuss Canton’s failure to engage. She did not call, however.
Rationed health care is a nice way of referring to underground eugenics policies. Poor people get crappier health care than the rich, and in Scott’s case, he gets warehoused while he dies.
Rationed health care came to national attention during the pandemic, as triage plans were put in place should hospitals be overwhelmed with ill patients. In fact, pandemic triage plans were quietly set up back around 2008. As reported in Chest Journal, then picked up by the Associated Press, these triage plans explicitly stated that elderly and disabled patients would be denied scarce medical resources.
While we did not see the elderly being denied access to the unfortunately deadly ventilators and other countermeasures during the pandemic, we saw where tens of thousands of nursing home residents expired due to executive-level decisions to send sick Covid patients to these homes, which could be considered “Petri dishes” for infection. Indeed, one of the governors who made such a decision, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, seemed to be aware just what would happen to nursing home residents should a Covid-ill patient end up at such a home.
In an interview with Jake Tapper on March 10, 2020, a mere two weeks before the Governor issued his March 25 order to place sick Covid patients in nursing homes, Cuomo stated that “that’s my nightmare and that’s where you’re going to see the pain and the damage from this virus. Senior citizen homes, nursing homes, congregant senior facilities. That is my nightmare. We’ve taken steps, some drastic steps in this area, in New Rochelle, we’re talking about. We said no visitors in a nursing home.”
Cuomo went on to say, “All you need is 9-year-old Johnny to visit his grandmother in a nursing home, give her a kiss, and you can be off to the races. That’s my fear. That population in those congregate facilities. That is really what we have to watch.”
In other words, Cuomo knew very well what would happen in the nursing homes.
The Biden DOJ has declined to prosecute.
These plans were at least partly put into place by Dr. Rahm Emanuel, who has brazenly stated that people do not need to live past the age of 75. Grandma Moses, whose wildly successful art career was launched at age 78, might disagree. My own father’s third book, The Money, was published at age 85.
In a 2009 Wall Street Journal article, Dr. Emanuel was typified thus– .
As a bioethicist, he has written extensively about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Dr. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.
Beyond these anecdotal perceptions lurks the dark face of eugenics. Before Hitler proceeded to gas to death those he considered to be sub-human—Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and the politically incorrect—he first launched a program to kill off ethnic Germans who were elderly and/or disabled. The program, known as T-4, resulted in around 200,000 deaths of the purportedly ill, which included the handicapped. According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica,
The transformation of physicians into killers took time and required the appearance of scientific justification. Soon after the Nazis came to power, the Bavarian minister of health proposed that psychopaths, the mentally retarded, and other “inferior” people be isolated and killed. “This policy has already been initiated at our concentration camps,” he noted.
…Pseudoscientific rationalizations for the killing of the “unworthy” were bolstered by economic considerations. According to bureaucratic calculations, the state could put funds that went to the care of criminals and the insane to better use—for example, in loans to newly married couples. Proponents for the program saw incurably sick children as a burden on the healthy body of the Volk, the German people. “Wartime is the best time for the elimination of the incurably ill,” Hitler said.
Eugenics, in the form of euthanasia aka “assisted suicide,” has again become an acceptable part of the political dialogue. Reframed as “death with dignity,” euthanasia laws have now been passed in eleven states—including DC—and more legislatures are considering them. Several countries have publicly adopted these laws, as well, citing that they are “compassionate.” Many of these laws contain loopholes which allow others to make this critical decision to end a life. Upon adoption, there is often a movement to expand the criteria to include those who are considered to have mental/psychiatric conditions rather than any physical illness.
However, it is becoming known that euthanasia practice has extended beyond the legalities in the aforementioned states and is now a regular practice of guardians.
Guardianships are generally launched through state court proceedings when there are allegations of “lack of capacity.” Upon initiation of a guardianship by the court, the guardian generally assumes control of the ward’s finances and also personal decisions, such as where the ward may live, whom the ward may be permitted to see, and medical decisions, as well. These medical powers include life and death decisions, such as the issuance of “Do Not Resuscitate Orders” and the withholding of medical care for treatable conditions.
My friend Scott was not economically successful. He played a wicked harmonica and was one of the kindest people I have ever known. Whimsical, artistic, he struggled for years with alcohol, a battle which impacted his ability to create wealth.
During my personal tribulation surrounding my mother’s murder, discussed in my 2014 book EXILE, Scott was the only person who stood by me as my life crumbled around me.
The nursing home insists they are only tasked with following doctor’s orders. Having fought like a demon to get on the approved HIPAA list, thinking it would allow me to speak with Dr. Hossain and question why Scott is not receiving treatment for the “water on the brain,” it was shocking to find out that the good doctor doesn’t wish to speak with me. Having nevertheless secured a neurological consult for my friend, it was even more distressing to find that the transport to the neurologist’s office never arrived and the appointment—so necessary if any treatment will take place—was again deferred.
For the second time in as many weeks, Scott was taken to a medical hospital yesterday, after falling and injuring himself. Both hospitals—the nursing home and the general hospital—are happy to patch up his cuts and bruises. But addressing the core reason for his falling and escalating confusion—the diagnosis of hydrocephalus—would require an active and interventionist strategy. And apparently in the eyes of Dr. Hossain, Scott just ain’t worth it.
Dr. Syed Hossain is believed to have been born in Bangladesh and to have gone to medical school at the University of Southern California. He is also believed to be affiliated with Kaiser Permanente. That hospital conglomerate has refused to comment or reply to inquiries asking about Dr. Hossain.
According to his webpage, Dr. Hossain’s decision to become a doctor was influenced by his father’s struggle with a brain tumor, a struggle which left him disabled. One cannot refrain from asking if Papa was also abandoned by his doctor and left to die.
