Today, we salute you, former AllianceHealth Midwest Hospital security guard Jonathan Hazar.
While patrolling the hospital, you pulled out your smartphone and snapped photos of dirty piles of dishes, brown toilets and overall questionable conditions at the medical center. Was that black mold?
Sure, you had just gotten fired for an unrelated incident and then decided to post the photos on social media and alert the public. But hey, who else would have done it?
Now, those photos have been viewed by thousands and broadcasted by all the local television stations. Youve caught the attention of Midwest City leaders like city manager Guy Henson and Rep. Roger Ford. The Midwest City Council, which is also the Midwest City Memorial Hospital Authority, questioned AllianceHealth CEO Clay Franklin about the conditions at their most recent meeting.
Sure, youve been called a disgruntled former employee in statements from AllianceHealth Midwest, who was disappointed in the depiction of the hospital. Well, wed say the community is disappointed in AllianceHealth Midwest. So what if patient care was not provided in those units; you dont think thats an excuse for the lack of care to the facility. Frankly, the public doesnt either.
Keep it up, Hazar! Consider going undercover again. Maybe next time you can visit the Oklahoma State Department of Health and snap photos that shed some light on the state agencys past financial mismanagement practices!
