Medical Staff Put Plastic Bag Over Patient’s Head [Photo]

A 17-year-old patient who was suspected of being unvaccinated was humiliated by hospital employees when she removed her face mask as they  placed a plastic bag over her head, According to a report by the Odessa Accountability Project of Texas.

A photo of the schoolgirl posted on the group’s Facebook page shows her having the bag over her head and upper body, with the words “equipment cover” written on it. In the photo, she is also wearing a face mask.

The young woman was “humiliated and dehumanized by the staff” for apparently removing her face mask. “The girl’s mother said she complained of not being able to breath well, taking off the mask, and was asked to put it back on,” states the post.

“The bag was over her head for roughly 30 minutes and she was instructed to save the bag for future use throughout the hospital.” Respondents to the post reacted with horror.
