Our Guest this Evening:

My name is Patti Martin

I am 5th child of six siblings. I am single college graduate that works in local government in North Carolina as a senior systems administrator (Windows Server environment).

I am caregiver to my Aunt Edna Mosley of Rockingham County, NC. who is single with no children. My aunt has two sisters living: Willie Mae (mom) and my aunt Margie, who helps take care of Edna.

My aunt graduated Barber Scotia College in Concord NC. She was also helpful in restoration of African American schools and an active member of the housing authority, providing housing for low income families. She was active in many other social clubs.

Our story :

My aunt Edna retired after 34 yrs of service with local city government. A year later my aunt was diagnosed with dementia and 3yrs later went on dialysis (chronic kidney disease). My aunt was always been a caregiver to someone in our family. I believe she deserved the same care back.

A few months ago my aunts arm started bleeding around her fistula. She entered into the hospital and ended up at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital who informed us that her fistula could never be used again. The family requested dialysis be continued while in hospital. That never happened. And, we were told she would need to get a catheter to continue dialysis. We then moved her hoping to get better care. My aunt Edna was dialysed using the same fistula that Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem NC said could not ever be used again..

She was discharged from the hospital with no recommendation to go back to her ongoing local dialysis center but rather, to go home to die; so far it has been 8 days.

Which leaves us looking for ways to continue her life by seeking help to find new location or way to continue dialysis that does not involve hospice .

Surrounding areas close by Aunt Edna locate dialysis center ..

Reidsville Eden,  Martinsville Va.     Danville Va less than 30 minutes travel .

Greensboro less then 40 min        Winston Salem 50mins.

Whistleblower’s! Is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblower’s Summit, taking place July 29-30-31, 2019 in Washington,D.C

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our guest tonight is Sean Higgins.  Sean is well known for his whistleblowing on the Memphis VA hospital for numerous and well established abuses of patients at that facility.  Among the issues Sean exposed, was the lack of proper cleaning of dialysis equipment that endangered the lives of veterans needing dialysis.  In fact, of 13 dialysis units, 8 had to be replaced due to lack of proper maintenance.   Sean will be discussing how he discovered the filthy dialysis units and what transpired when he reported this.

Sean’s relentless exposure of the lack of care, failure to follow proper procedures, leaving patients unattended and numerous other infractions at the facility caused his termination.  Sean fought back and the Memphis VA was forced to rehire him.  As a result, Sean was put into a room with a few other people, no job to do, no computer or other equipment and forced to stay there all day in retaliation for exposing the sad state of affairs at the Memphis VA.  And taxpayers had to foot the bill for this retaliation.

Join us this evening as we host Mr. Ron Hasson of the NAACP

During his years of employment he held a General Management Executive position with extensive experience in strategic planning, operations and human resource management. Ron is resourceful in solving problems and maximizing resources.

Mr. Hasson currently chairs the California-Hawaii State Conference Southwest Area. Director and in 2012 he became a member of the NAACP National board of Directors. He is serving his fifth term as President of the Branch, The focus of Mr. Hasson commitment continues to address issues concerning people of color in Region 1 and the Hollywood Industry.

Ron is a native of Tallahassee, Florida and a long-tune resident of California and has been instrumental in getting our NAACP Resolutions moving to make changes in the Dialysis Industry. Thank you for all dialysis patients.

Following Mr. Hasson we will hear from patients from a Davita clinic that have been told they are moving to another location.

This location is in a different county, which means that patients who cannot drive, will not be able to cross county lines for transportation.

We will extend an invitation to Davita and see why this is becoming another form of perhaps excluding patients.

This is legal, as some of these companies are closing and opening new centers in other areas.
