No Time To Grieve: Death by Pathway

While our attention focuses on the tragic accounts of those who have been injured as a result of Covid-19 injections, another wicked act has been happening right under our noses in plain sight of thousands, perhaps millions of others: a deliberate culling of our most vulnerable.

When Elena Vlaica RGN called an ambulance for her soulmate and partner Stuart when he became breathless and unwell, she trusted the NHS to look after him and return him to her better. She was not to have known that this one innocuous call for help would mean his final journey from their home alive.

Stuart was in his early fifties and had had a mild stroke a couple of years previously. Although life was not quite the same as before the stroke, Stuart and Elena still enjoyed a happy active life, and Stuart’s family, children and grandchildren were regular visitors. 

Elena first contacted UK Column months ago to tell us how her beloved soulmate, who was unvaccinated for Covid-19, had within days of admission been consigned to death, as an End-of-Life Care Plan was implemented without consultation with the family or indeed Stuart himself.

The notorious Liverpool Care Pathway, a pathway to death, was ostensibly abandoned in 2014 after being deemed inhumane, but appears to have been resurrected at the start of the ‘pandemic’ in early 2020 in many hospitals and care homes across the U.K.


PCR + unjabbed = death

On admission to the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust, and having been diagnosed as having Covid-19 on the dubious strength of a PCR test, Stuart was left isolated, scared and separated from those he loved. Elena describes how she had to communicate with him through a phone screen and watch him cry as he desperately begged to return home, where he felt safe.

Despite begging the medical teams to continue with a course of antibiotics, he was deemed ‘terminal’, and as such was immediately started on a Midazolam and morphine protocol, with all of his regular medications abruptly withheld (including the antidepressant Citalopram, which it is well known patients should be slowly weaned off).

Elena knew that the combination of these two drugs—morphine, an opioid, and Midazolam, a benzodiazepine—would kill him, and instructed doctors not to use it. No-one in their right mind would give a respiratory depressant (inhibitor of breathing) to someone who was struggling to breathe.

Unable to visit, Elena was alone and reliant on Stuart’s sisters, who were allowed to visit only sparingly. The family discovered, to their horror, that not only was Stuart being slowly sedated and starved into an early death, but he had tried to escape on more than one occasion, only to find he was shackled to the bed by a catheter bag tied to the bedframe.

Elena describes in this interview how "we know Midazolam is torture like waterboarding" and how an NHS employee killed Stuart while Elena held him. Elena, who was born in Ceaușescu’s Romania, adds that "they have done a brilliant job on the propaganda".


Not a one-off

The harrowing events of what happened to Stuart in hospital are mirrored across the country. Accelerated end-of-life care plans are being rolled out at pace and by stealth. This is the frightening fruit of a policy of making seemingly anyone with a job in the care sector—regardless of grade or qualification—learn how to ‘certify a death’ in a half-hour e-tutorial. Yes, the training is online and takes 30 minutes.

Elena tells UK Column of her and her family’s dogged determination in fighting for Stuart’s life, and subsequently for truth and justice, and how they have all coped since losing him.

She sets out how relatives had to navigate red tape to try to raise awareness urgently in others; there was no time to grieve. That was the cruellest blow of all—mourning denied. It turned out to be impossible to obtain a post mortem (autopsy).

Far from giving up, Elena has returned to nursing where she is allowed to (she is restricted in her duties, as she is unvaccinated) to educate her colleagues and to do her best for her patients. Did she want to return? No; but she felt she had to, in order to help those left behind. She explains how, on numerous occasions, doctors have consulted her for guidance as to how care should proceed in some very sick patients. Her recommendation is always the same: “Let’s wait and see; antibiotics and nebuliser first, and then we will reassess”. No panic, no rush; just kindness and time.


More Elenas

How many lives have Elena and others of like mind in her profession saved that we don’t know about? The quiet saviours in our care homes should be encouraged and thanked for all they are doing to protect some of our most elderly and vulnerable. Many of the most conscience-stricken have already left the healthcare system, but not all. Elena has decided not administer Midazolam and morphine to any patient, and has even refused to update her qualifications over this principle. She vows that no-one else will go through what her darling beloved went through; not on her watch.

We thank Elena and her family for allowing us to share their story, and those doctors, nurses and carers still in the background who are applying Elena’s attitude.

As we watch our most vulnerable and elderly jabbed with the new ‘bivalent’ Covid-19 booster, we can only pray there are many more Elenas in our midst to educate those in the medical profession about what they are doing. Every care home and hospital ward needs an Elena. Do No Harm; tender loving care for all patients.
