Jacinto Abarca was a man with no bad bone in his body, with LOVE that he shared with everyone he came across as a loving father, loving husband, and a hardworking man that took pride in his work and offered his services and providing for his loving family that he worked so hard for. His only joy was being at home with his family and doing all that he can for them. He loved to cook for everyone. He loved to make sure everyone was happy.
He looked out for others before himself. Humble in his ways and modest. An honest and truly great man that I've had the pleasure of meeting. An honor to have witnessed greatness of how a real man existed seeing how much he loved his family and how much joy and love he shared. It's sad to know how he suffered and now the family is left with the financial and emotional struggle.
On Mothers day, 3 daughters, 1 son, and a loving wife and dad reunited for a final gathering, unknowingly the outcome of the death of the loving-hard working father. He went to work being denied of sick days of leave only given one single mask while working for 15 days. He drove himself to the hospital about 3 weeks ago with a fever of 106. Being diagnosed with Phneumonia while being tested for Covid-19. On the third day of recovery, he communicated with his family telling them everything was going to be okay. Unfortunately, respiratory complications occurred and being in transferred to ICU on the ventilator for the matter of 2-3 weeks, not knowing the outcome of his death. The hospital not knowing his insurance status, they treated him with basic medical needs. Neglecting his medical needs and being limited to medical treatment, they procrastinated on his transfer to a better medical facility. The family fights back and forth, days and nights, to prove his insurance status. After almost a week trying to prove his insurance status with all the miscommunications between the hospital and the insurance and the medical team, they finally were aware that he is covered by insurance. And then, a new medical team was assigned to him for better care & treatment. The delay in his proper treatment, now pretty much denied his chances to be transferred to a proper facility for care due to his condition being very critical. He was on the ventilator for 2-3 weeks with a blood clot in his arm. Also, was only visited once by a doctor from afar and supervised by nurses with not knowing what to do. Without a proper team available at the hospital, no "vascular surgeon" available to treat his arm. He battled his breathing while only being watched on the ventilator by nurses. His medical team miscommunication with the family, not knowing how to treat him, and watching him fluctuate from the lowest of 65% breathing rate to all of a sudden 90% after the fact of his insurance status being proven which took days and nights of battling back and forth. The family is consistently demanding updates everyday, feeling neglected & misinformed by the medical team. The family requested the father to be proned for better proper treatment for a Covid-19 patient. However, the hospital stated that they did not have a prone team. But when the insurance was finally proven, he was immediately proned and was assigned 2 respiratory specialist doctors. From proned position, back to stable condition, he was making major progress by breathing 40% by his own and 60% off the ventilator. A sudden medical impact declining his health, they proned him once more which resulted his death.
On June 10th, 5 AM, he was announced dead due to the complications of Covid-19 and respiratory issues. His breathing struggle ended leaving the family torn, lost, and confused by being misinformed by the hospital & the lack of proper care. Due to the limitations from the hospital, with no "vascular surgeon" available and no transfer to a better medical facility to be attended to, the family is now in need of everybody's prayers and financial help for proper burial.
