Arnold Tranes [email protected] April 7, Copy of letter sent to Governor Cuomo, NYS Dept of Health, SUNY Buffalo Nursing School issue affects risk of contagion in local communities Erie County Government City of Buffalo Town of Amherst Re: SUNY at Buffalo Nursing School Endangers “Flatten the Curve” Efforts The University at Buffalo School of Nursing has endangered its senior would-be graduating class and the general public at a time when we should be trying to “flatten the curve”, by instead forcing the students to participate in a three-week training course at local hospitals in Buffalo, with no testing or adequate PPE. This “preceptorship” has been setup in a slap-dash manner and encumbers supporting staff and training personnel. Students may be asymptomatic, many coming back to UB from the NYC metro area, and spread the virus or contract it. The hospitals will have Covid-19 patients on different floors from general patients the students would treat, but we all know that is not sufficient segregation of contagion. Furthermore, the nursing school disclaims liability for the health of the students and offers no explanation of how they would graduate later if they refuse to participate in the program, which is a minimal part of their already extensive clinical training. Most or all other public and private university nursing schools (such as NYU) have waived the requirement for completion of this course in the interest of bringing more RN’s into the workforce at a critical time. To the contrary, many nursing graduates may be discouraged from taking jobs in New York as a result of this mistreatment, and UB may lose future enrollment in the nursing program when the school’s misguided policies are known. I implore the NYS government, the press, and the public to sound the alarm and stop this malpractice before it costs lives “as sure as shooting”. Arnold Tranes
Sirs: This is a personal campaign on my part...and I am asking you to follow through ... Volunteer Firefighters, EMS personnel, CANNOT GET TESTED!!
The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 left 343 New York firefighters dead. Retired FDNY Lieutenant James J. O’Donnell survived that horrific day but attended over 150 memorial services for those that passed. Now, he shares the lives of 10 heroes who perished in the attacks, as told by their parents in “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith.” “The crashing of two planes into the Twin Towers not only dismantled the buildings but hundreds of families as well. Mothers and fathers were left in the rubble of these attacks, searching for husbands, brothers and sons. Some of them never received answers nor recovered the bodies,” O’Donnell said. “The parents’ spiritual and emotional journeys can serve as an example of faith rising over despair.” “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith” serves as a memorial to the lives and careers of 10 first responders who perished on 9/11. O’Donnell presents a unique and personal look at how the parents of these heroes were consoled by the FDNY Counseling Services Unit and the role that they played in helping them manage their grief in the aftermath of a national tragedy. In their own words, these faithful families share their sons' bravery and sacrifice so that it will never be forgotten. These parents not only recount the lives of their children but their own road to healing. O’Donnell takes a special look at the role faith played in the lives of those that perished and their families. “Sons of Valor, Parents of Faith is meant to help readers understand the stress, hardship and sometimes devastation that parents and families of first responders face,” O’Donnell said. “I also hope that readers realize the efforts and sacrifices of the FDNY and their families. Not only on that day but in the ensuing months and years.” Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Westbow Press.
