Daughter - Coronavirus Symptoms - Denied Testing, Pennsylvania, USA

March 17, 2020 2:35 PM

Pennsylvania, United States

Daughter - Coronavirus Symptoms - Denied Testing, Pennsylvania, USA

Interview - Valorie, Pennsylvania
This is an interview with the parent of a presumptive coronavirus patient that was denied testing.

Safelyhq:
Valerie, thanks for joining us. Really appreciate it. Your situation relates to your daughter. Can you describe to us when she first felt sick and what the symptoms were at that time and what they've progressed to now?

Valorie:
Okay. It started on Wednesday night into Thursday. She had developed a deep cough, a dry cough, which only got louder over time as the only way I can describe it and more steady and it sounds like a pneumonia type cough. She also had a cold, a very severe cold, and then she finally didn't develop a fever until last night. So that's Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. That's how long it took to get a fever.

Safelyhq:
What was your experience in trying to get testing?

Valorie:
So today I did call her pediatrician exactly when they opened and I left an urgent message saying to please advise me what to do. My daughter now has all the symptoms of coronavirus and I don't even know if you're able to see her. And she said, no, you're right. We cannot see her. And she urged me to call a hotline. I even called urgent care, seeing if she could be seen there. They told me no, same thing call this hotline. So I called the hotline. I was on hold for approximately two hours the first time. I mean, because I estimate that because I was able to get myself and her fully ready to go, thinking that they were going to send us to the hospital wherever we needed to go to get tested. Okay. That never happened. I took a bath, had it on speaker phone, got everything ready, set us all. I mean we have a three person family and I had to hang up eventually because her pediatrician was calling me back with the response to the urgent message. The second time I was on hold, about the same amount of time I was on hold for a total of four hours today.

Safelyhq:
Is there any conditions that your daughter has that might make her higher risk or make it more urgent?

Valorie:
Yes, she has anemia and she is a very contractive person. I don't know why she gets sick every month with something in school. And that's why I looked at urging that please close the schools. Please close the schools because it just is going around. My daughter will be the one who gets it for sure.

Safelyhq:
And so do you have an idea of where she might have got it?

Valorie:
I honestly would have to say that it would be at school. Her sister didn't get it. I didn't get it. I was engaging in doctor appointments and kind of normal social activity until the end of next week because I figured sending them to school is just as bad as any of us going out into the public.

Safelyhq:
And so what are you the next steps that you plan to take given you've had a hard time getting medical care?

Valorie:
Well I plan on just calling the hotline again tomorrow. What the pediatrician did do, I guess to cover their own end of the spectrum. They sent over an urgent RX to the pharmacy for amoxicillin just in case. Just in case it is not a virus. Then if that doesn't treat it, that's how I know sooner. You know what to do. So if that doesn't treat it, and if I can't get through on the hotline, I just plan to drive to the hospital, which was designated as a location anyway through our healthcare system and go in myself and alert them ahead of time.

Safelyhq:
And what is your message to people that are concerned about coronavirus now that it's, it's something that you've seen firsthand. Do you have a message for other people?

Valorie:
A message that's kind of hard to come up with? Everybody's healthcare system is going to be different, if you don't succeed at first. There's got to be another step you can take. Be proactive. think of yourself, think of your family, and do whatever you feel is best, not what a hotline is telling you or say. And not exactly what your doctor's telling you or say. If you want to be tested, find a way.

- Tetracycline HCl Capsules 500 mg 100 count. NDC number: 23155-018-01. Lot No: K190952. Expiry Date: OCT 2022

These drug products are manufactured by Avet Pharmaceuticals Labs Inc. and distributed under the Heritage Pharmaceuticals Inc. label. The voluntary recall is being initiated due to low out of specification dissolution test results.

Low dissolution results in less tetracycline available in the body to fight infection. This can lead to treatment failures. For patients with compromised immune systems and the elderly, who may be taking tetracycline to treat a serious infection such as pneumonia, there is a reasonable probability that if there is not enough tetracycline in the body to fight the infection, this could result in rapid progression of the infection and death. To date, Avet has not received adverse event reports or complaints related to this event.

The recalled Tetracycline HCl Capsules 250 mg and 500 mg lots were distributed to wholesalers and distributors Nationwide in United States between August 2019 and March 2020.

Avet is notifying its distributors and customers by a separate notification to distributors and through Qualanex and is arranging for the return of all recalled products. Consumers should contact their doctor for further guidance and potential change of treatment before they stop taking this drug product. Pharmacies and healthcare facilities that have the drug product subject to this recall should immediately stop dispensing this drug product.

“Interview - Doctor in Paris, France:
This is a first-hand account from a SafelyHQ user that is a medical professional on the coronavirus situation in France. She discusses how her work has changed since the start of the pandemic, work rotations and testing for medical professionals, and issues faci ... See Moreng patients and medical professionals.

Charlotte:
I'm a pediatric resident and I work in a pediatric hospital. I was working in the genetics unit and it's mostly outpatient and non-intensive care, so we were actually closed down last week. Just because most of us are pediatricians and so we were kind of needed elsewhere. So I decided to stop working because of my pregnancy. But then all my other colleagues are still working and they're actually now, at home, confined at home and they're waiting to be called to different departments are probably either the ER or intensive care unit and from what they understand for now, they just have to stay home and rest. And they're going to be called out probably next week when the first wave of doctors start being a little tired, probably hospitalized because they themselves are sick. So right now they're mostly, resting at home. And then I know that our unit, so was shut down and a lot of other non-urgent care at our hospital was shut down and everything is being reorganized so that we have Covid units. And so at the hospital I work in, is actually a pediatric hospital, but they're going to open an adult Covid unit just because obviously adults are more affected than children are.

SafelyHQ:
Are there any changes as a pediatrician?

Charlotte:
In most maternity at least in Paris, the dads aren't allowed in the delivery room or in the hospital at all for now. So things are pretty rough on new moms right now. And I know that we're also kind of being slowly prepared that we're probably not going to be able to have an epidural just because there won't be any doctors available. So, getting prepared for maybe a rough delivery for most new moms right now, at least new Parisian moms.

SafelyHQ:
Is testing easy for people to get so far or has it been a problem for some people. And how do things look like on that front?

Charlotte:
So, in our hospital it's very easy for all medical, staff if they have any of the symptoms to get tested. It's very, very easy. I know that for patients we only test patients that are unstable or in very critical care. Just because we can't afford to test everyone, but staff is definitely prioritized and we're all told we can get tested as easily if we want to. Or if I mean, not if you want to obviously if you have symptoms.

SafelyHQ:
Did you know anyone who has got diagnosed with coronavirus?

Charlotte:
Yeah, actually, I already have a couple of friends who are staying at home because they have it. One of my, well actually he is also a pediatric resident is at home right now with, well he's getting tested today, but it's most likely Covid. His wife was tested and got tested positive after having a five day fever. And now he has a fever since yesterday, so he did his test today. So very, very likely, also Covid positive. And so his wife is also a medical resident who probably got it working at the ER and then he got it through her.

SafelyHQ:
Being in the medical field and seeing what, the medical field is doing in France and learning about, about coronavirus. And having some friends who have it, do you have any, messages that you, they have for people who want to learn more?

Charlotte:
I think just the best thing is to stay informed on what's happening on reliable sites because I know there's a lot of misinformation out there and just do what they can to stay home. Because the big wave is going to come. And I know all my friends in the hospitals are getting as ready as they can, but I'm sure you've heard that there already some parts of France that are in a very, very complicated situation where they're already out of machines for like life support machines and out of room in intensive care units. And so hopefully Paris doesn't get there, but we never know. And it all kind of just relies on people really being careful and staying home and I know everyone wants to go outside to buy their bread and whatever, but it's always a risk. And just be mindful that, yeah, doctors are doing the best they can. And I know I have friends that are pharmacist and other things like that that are complaining because they don't have masks or they're not protected. But the truth is doctors rarely have mask as well, and everyone's of kind of going through it as they can and doing the best they can. So yeah, that's the message. I think just relax, stay at home and know that everyone is trying to get organized and do the best they can, and it's obviously not perfect, but it is what it is for now.
