Anyone else seeing all negative results for COVID testing at their hospital? We have had several patients who are clinically positive with no other explanation and they test negative over and over. Could it be faulty tests or technique? Or that some people don’t test positive until a few weeks after their symptoms? All I know is I don’t trust these tests one bit. Scary thing is, if the patients test negative they are not isolating them and some nurses are only wearing surgical mask in room.

Part of a BD now, thinking of going on my own as RIA. Costs would be about 50% less, which makes it seem like an obvious choice. Have a deep family friend relationship with current firm, though. I don’t want to burn a bridge, but am I crazy to be a bit upset that the relationship could keep me from doing what I think may be right? Really struggling with that part of the decision.
