I am writing to congratulate Kirk Soileau, CEO, of the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center and Sarah LaCour, R.N. Quality Control, for STRICTLY enforcing mask-wearing by ALL medical personnel and support staff who work in the hospital, patients, and visitors. We are in the midst of a pandemic which is taking lives. The number of cases just in Natchitoches Parish are extremely high. Mr. Soileau’s courageous decision will definitely save lives, and one of the lives that may be saved is the life of your loved-one or yourself. We have personally lost family members and friends to COVID, and it is such a difficult, and unnecessary, way to die.
Now, if the NRMC would join other health care facilities, and require all medical and support staff to be fully vaccinated, we could actually eradicate this deadly virus.
This virus is a killer and there is no way to know if you will have a mild case or will die from it. Even people with mild cases may have health challenges for an extended period of time from long haul COVID.
If you’re not vaccinated, please help yourself, your family, your community and your country by getting vaccinated. Being vaccinated is patriotic.
