My patient's dad tested positive. I am livid!

I am a private duty nurse and one of my medically fragile patient's parents are willfully unvaccinated. I broached the subject of vaccines a few weeks ago as the Delta variant was spreading. They did not give a specific reason why they weren't vaccinated, but it is part of my job to educate and I did and let it go.

I found out today that the dad who works in the public, was positive for Covid. I am so angry! Their 1 yo child is medically fragile and this disease could easily kill him. They have another child, 6 yo who is also at risk.

I have just had it. If this child gets sick and dies, I think CPS should be called. Stupid dumb assed idiots!! Gggrrrr!

3. They don't care about kids, if they did

there would have been major gun reform after the students were mass murdered in Elementary and High Schools. They don't even care about their own kids, let alone someone else's kids.

Not even their family.

27. They don't even really think of themselves.

They think about what someone told them to think about.

If they cared about themselves, they would get the vaccine.

Why wait until the child dies?

8. That's what I was wondering.

Make sure all the vaccine conversations are documented and go ahead and contact CPS.

Isn't "Reckless enganderment" still a crime?

10. This puts you in a bind in so many ways but if you are a mandated reporter don't you have to notify?

Absent a mandate this could be considered just a less than optimal parental choice and may be something CPS or your reporting agency doesn’t think rises to the level of filing.

Been there - I feel for you on this! Your anger is justified though. They acted selfishly and recklessly.

21. The parent should be ordered to quatantine

somewhere outside of the home in order to protect the child. Probably the other parent, too, since they are likely to maintain contact with each other.

Oh, by the way, vaccines are free.

25. This isn't as bad as endangering their lives directly, but these parents are also poisoning

their kids' minds by teaching them to distrust science, doctors and nurses, anything a liberal/progressive/Democrat says, and even empirical, real-life evidence they themselves witness (such as almost all Covid hospitalizations being that of unvaxxed people).

And also by teaching their kids to support TFG, Republican politicians, and their Big Lie with undying loyalty. Well, I guess "undying loyalty" is a bit of a misnomer, since they are dropping like flies from Covid these days.
