Incredibly, this incident is happening right now here in Sacramento. It all started on Thursday when Anna Nikolayev and her husband Alex took a trip to Sutter Memorial Hospital over some flu-like symptoms that their 5-month-old son was experiencing. Intended to be a visit centered around ensuring the health of their child, they were met with resistance when questioning the treatment their young son was receiving. In fact, simply asking why their son was being given antibiotics, which absolutely destroys the small amounts of beneficial gut bacteria in children, was unacceptable.
So what did Anna do? What any reasonable person who cares about their
child would do, get the heck out of the hospital prescribing 5-month-old
children antibiotics for flu-like symptoms. Before this, the Sutter
Hospital doctors actually went a step further. Beyond the antibiotic
dosing, they actually admitted the couple’s son Sammy into the ICU and
started discussing the possibility of heart surgery. Sammy has been
receiving treatment for a heart murmur since birth.
