just sayin'

I am all about helping the hospitals, but how is it possible that they don't have enough gloves and masks? Why are they not ordering them as needed? They new this was going to be a catastrophe in health care. For what your hospital charges you when you visit, why are we giving them free-be's. Did you ever see a N/C on a line item on your bill? Now, lets kick this virus's a$$, and get back to living.
