President Biden said Thursday he personally reached out to a hospital the night before to ensure the wife of his “good friend” received immediate care because the “waiting room was so crowded.”
“Last night, I was on the telephone with a person at an emergency hospital ward in Pennsylvania because a good friend had called, and he had rushed his significant other to the emergency room because this woman was having trouble breathing, had a high fever, and could not catch her breath,” Biden said during a speech in Illinois promoting COVID-19 vaccine mandates for businesses.
“They got her into the hospital. The waiting room was so crowded, things were so backed up they couldn’t even get her to be seen initially. So, because I knew this person, I called. I called the desk receiving nurse and asked what the situation was.”
The president said he was not complaining because the nurses and doctors were “getting the living hell kicked out of them” due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“To make a long story short, it took a while, because all of the, not all, the vast majority of the emergency rooms were occupied taking care of COVID patients,” he said, concluding his story.
Biden said he imagined that many Americans experienced a similar situation or knew of someone who did.
“Look, things are changing and we can end this thing,” he continued, urging Americans to get their vaccines.
