EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE: Whistleblower Exposes New York City Hospital For Purposely Trashing PPE & Medical Supplies During “Pandemic”


New York City was the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak during spring 2020.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other medical supplies were critical at this juncture.

Flashback to 2020, and you’ll remember one of the primary issues was securing enough PPE to care for hospitalized patients.

At the height of NYC’s COVID-19 outbreak, Governor Cuomo announced a “New Hospital Network Central Coordinating Team.”


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a new hospital network Central Coordinating Team that will help facilitate a more coordinated and strategic approach among the state’s healthcare system in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

The coordinating team will help implement the statewide public-private hospital plan, which the Governor announced yesterday, to share information, supplies, staff and patients among hospitals across the State. The team will be responsible for organizing upstate to downstate staffing; assisting Elmhurst Hospital and other stressed hospitals; setting patient thresholds for hospitals; organizing patient transfers to other hospitals and the USNS Comfort; coordinating State-City stockpiles and individual hospital stockpiles; and facilitating staffing recruitment.

The team will be led by the State Department of Health and includes the Westchester, New York City and Long Island healthcare systems, the Greater New York Hospital Association and the Healthcare Association of New York State. The team will also work with FEMA and the federal government.

However, PPE shortage remained an urgent issue at multiple facilities.

President Trump raised the possibility someone was stealing PPE from New York hospitals:


Were the supplies going out the back door and forcing healthcare workers to wear garbage bags for gowns?

According to a whistleblower, the hospital purposely tossed PPE and other critical medical supplies in the trash. 

A former Northwell – Staten Island University Hospital – North Campus employee came forward with the shocking allegation. 

And the whistleblower provided video evidence to verify the claims.

Anthony Russo, a former materials management employee, stated he received instructions to throw away supplies 3-4 times per week. 

The order began at the onset of the “pandemic’ and carried on until the NYC COVID-19 jab mandate deadline. 

Trashed supplies included N-95 masks, isolation gowns, gloves, lumbar puncture kits, IV starter kits, shampoos, lotions, socks, diapers, and more. 

Why was Russo instructed by upper management to throw critical PPE in the dumpster?

During a pandemic, what sense does it make for a hospital to throw out critical medical supplies?

If the hospital is overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, wouldn’t they need the supplies?

Why are taxpayer-funded medical supplies getting tossed in the dumpster and forcing healthcare workers to resort to garbage bags?

What were the financial implications for the hospital?

These are questions that warrant an audit and investigation.

WeThePeopleAreTheNews reached out to Northwell – Staten Island University Hospital – North Campus for an explanation.

At the time of writing, the hospital has yet to respond to the inquiry.
