At the last minute on Wednesday, an operation in a Viennese hospital on an Upper Austrian who was seriously ill with cancer was canceled. The reason: the intensive care unit of the hospital was occupied with Covid-19 patients and the bed intended for the cancer patient was not free, the “Kronen Zeitung” reported online. In the evening, the person concerned also described his case in “ORF Upper Austria Today” and “Vienna Today”.
“It’s about my life and whether I can see my children grow up”
The patient is Thomas Stadlbauer, who until recently was the office manager of Upper Austria. Provincial Councilor Stefan Kaineder (Greens) confirmed his office. The vital intervention for the 46-year-old was scheduled for Wednesday. The hospital had no choice but to discharge the patient who had already been prepared for the operation. On the way back to Linz, he informed friends and acquaintances: “I was just stopped on the way to the operating room and sent home because the Covid patients were taking the last intensive care place,” quoted the “Krone” from the message. Stadlbauer showed full understanding for the hospital staff. “What I have never understood is that corona deniers and opponents of measures never think that vaccination is about external and self-protection. It will only be the compulsory vaccination that frees us – and this comes much too late due to the weakness of the policy ”, he was quoted further.
He also couldn’t understand why one rejects a “vaccine administered billions of times”, but “can easily be vaccinated against diseases for vacation trips, no matter how tried a vaccine is”, he expressed his disappointment. “But I don’t care, because it’s about my life and about whether I can see my children grow up,” says the seriously ill father-to-be.
