I need your help to support my crusade to defend our elderly loved ones staying in Florida healthcare facilities from contracting preventable infections like the one that ended my father's life. Given there is a new threat with Coronavirus already taking lives in our nation's nursing homes, I am extremely concerned that the lack of proper infection control places more patients at risk of serious viral and bacterial diseases, which often turn septic and lead to unspeakable suffering and premature death.

It's too late for my dad, however my fight continues on behalf of others. Change must come from the top and I'm praying our voices will be heard. I am desperately seeking compassionate individuals and groups to contact Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, with passionate pleas for him to include all the commonly overlooked infectious diseases that already sicken and kill seniors in our healthcare settings, as part of his emergency response to the Coronavirus. Healthcare workers who improperly practice infection control need to be held accountable for their violation of patient rights and when we do so lives will be saved!

Please contact Gov. DeSantis and give him the message that we are calling upon his leadership to attend to this crisis of viral and bacterial infections, including Coronavirus, by requiring strict oversight of healthcare professionals in maintaining safety protocols that protect our most vulnerable family members from preventable suffering and death.
