Stop denying families access to Covid patients

I was told to leave Baptist Medical Center just after he was diagnosed with aggressive brain tumor that killed him in 1 week, and only 2 1/2 weeks after my mom, his wife, also passed. I left, with my dad, after I was threatened with security. Nurses refused to help me get him in a wheelchair even though he could not walk or use his legs. My parents needed me to speak and advocate for them as they were elderly with dementia. My Nextdoor neighbor also died alone with COVID at Ascension Riverside in January.
