- I had detailed to you all and on the net how I had witnessed a patient for 5 days lying next to my father in the Montreal west lakeshore hospital deliberately allowed to die of starvation cause no one would feed him, counsel him.. Imagine this I next saw the very same thing a year later when I was with my mother in another Hosital even. The murder continues.
- Now when a senior person goes into a retirement home it seems that in 50 percent of the cases a family members will try to steal their assets. money from them and all such persons should be charged in a criminal court for wrong doings and not in a civil court rather . Some bad family members even get a power of attorney over them and theur assets under false representations too.

IT IS NOT AUTOMATIC MOST PEOPLE STILL DO NOT KNOW TO THAT TO GET THE FREE 411 SERVICES, AND NOT PAY $1.50 PER CALL, YOU FIRST HAVE TO ASK FOR THE SERVICE, YOU AUTOMATICALLY DO NOT GET IT WHEN YOU REACH 65. SO MAJORITY OF SENIORS LIKE MY FATHER DID PAY FOR THEIR FREE 411 SERVICES STILL
“I thought I have seen the worst of Canada already, Crooked lawyers, crooked accountants, bad cops, bad judges, bad politicians, bad pastors and bad church elders.. but now the last 4 months I have seen directly seniors sickness, death, dying, loss of memory.. One thing I these days too often have encountered are those criminal medical workers who have become falsely indifferent, calloused to the pain of others… My elderly father had asked to be taken to the hospital again because he had severe pain, shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing, he just recently had congestive heart failure. When he arrived a the hospital on a scale of one to ten his pain was ten. The emergency staff went immediately through their routines, x-rays, blood pressure blood tests, etc.. even some useless ones.. and the actual test results would be next a few hours later as the medical staff paced itself slowly for for a hopefully slow evening ahead of them. A variety of problems were considered, infection, pneumonia, bronchitis, water on the lungs.. and needless to say my hungry father was forced to skip his meal as well.. a few hours later with no visible medical actions my father’s had even pain doubled.. I called for the nurse on duty but 15 minutes she did not come cause she was too busy elsewhere. So I demanded immediately to see the doctor now and explained to them all that he was in severe unacceptable pain. Immediately next a variety of simultaneous solutions were incorporated but solely after my demand now, including nitro glycerin spray, a morphine based pain killer, antibiotics. a diuretic pill to remove possible excess water on the lungs as well. Clearly the emergency medical staff here even needed to be better supervised to produce the much need serious results next shown. My father today was admitted to the emergency hospital because of severe pain and breathing problems, turns out that no one at the LGH after this congestive heart failure had firstly even told my father or me that he had to limit his drinking water to two cups a day, a very standard medical advice.. my father was drinking at least 6 cups a day, and even a very young doctor here had quickly discovered the problem now when forced to upon her first serious examination, and she was also able to prescribe an immediate pain killer, morphine base that solved his pain.. and we did not have to wait hours or months for a suitable pain killer too. Doctors and nurses sadly often tend not to care about the other people’s pains, only their own sadly.”

Nurses who work with doctors often tell me that the type of medical services you get really depends on the doctor himself, for there are some really good doctors and some really bad bad lazy doctors. A medical degree from any university too does not insure that any person now is a good doctor. Even doctors need to be supervised. I have to admit I am still too often amazed when I do personally encounter good doctors, and good nurses, to me they seem to be the exception and not the norm these days still..
ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TELL ME THAT THE SO CALLED PROFESSIONALS, DOCTORS AND NURSE ARE THESE DAYS BEING ADEQUATELY SUPERVISED IS STILL ONLY BULL SHITTING ME! For a too typical recent example, one I have often seen too, my elderly father is spending a week in a major decent hospital and he next also develops diarrhea, so he now even shits in his bed, and he gets his linen dirty, all cause he had firstly ranged the bell for the nurse for a whole hour at 8.00 am even, and no one came to help him get out of bed to go to the bathroom. Bad enough a half an hour later they also do let him lie in it.. untill I show up.. me the supervisor.. So I next personally dump his dirty line on the floor.. now the passing nurse sees my presence and my acts so she calls for others to come, and quickly they all come, the floor cleaner, the orderly, the nurse too.. to do their work they are being paid for too.. and what where they waiting for? A supervisor like me to come and to make them work otherwise most of them still they try their best not to work, and this is a common fact of life and not a rarity.. so now do not leave your loved one alone in the hospital, visit them often to insure they are being properly looked after
On top of that My father has now even been robbed twice in his room, cash was taken from his wallet by the hospital staff in 2 separate hospitals now too. If we cannot trust the staff not to steal money then how can we trust them to provide decent medical services now as well?
Thu Apr 15, 9:36 PM WINNIPEG (CBC) – The Manitoba NDP government is being criticized for a sharp rise in cancellations of heart surgeries and cardiac-related tests over the last three years. Opposition health critic Myrna Driedger said on Thursday that between 2006 and the end of 2009, the number of cancelled heart surgeries has risen dramatically. “There were 116 cancellations in 2006, but in 2009, that number more than doubled to 262 including 43 cancellations in the month of December alone,” Driedger said in a statement. The Progressive Conservative MLA said she has spoken to front-line doctors who say bed shortages in the cardiac intensive care unit at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg are to blame. The average wait time for cardiac surgery in February was 36 days, Driedger said, adding that patients needing elective surgeries can wait up to two months. Patients needing heart stress tests and other diagnostic measures are also subject to months-long waits, Driedger said. A spokeswoman for Manitoba Health confirmed that Driedger’s numbers were correct but said factors such as the annual increase in the number of patients with cardiac disease were to blame. The 43 cancellations in December were an anomaly, the spokeswoman said. By January, the waiting list had dipped down to 18. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100415/canada/canada_manitoba_man_wait_times_cardiac_manitoba
Further more it is a sad estimated fact that less than 1/3 of medical workers do actually a full day’s pay of real, valid work. Face it, the actual medical worker productivity depends on the worker you have hired, a bad worker does a lousy job compared to a good one and the bad supervisors do tend to hire still mostly bad workers now as well, and they both should be fired ASAP. Especially in Hospitals, Seniors homes.
More serious studies are also now needed still to see the reality as to how they the seniors now are being treated in fact when they do get sick in the Hospitals and in the old age homes.
One certainly cannot believe here the too often lying hospitals and governments who tend to falsely deny, cover up most seniors abuses, even the causes of hospital deaths.
It is also an undeniable, unacceptable Canadian fact of life that if a young person, teen, young adult goes to a hospital seriously injured, sick, they the younger persons next would get quicker medical services over the seniors.. and so also would the hospital employees and their families, sports stars, celebrities, politicians, influential persons, wealthy donors.. the average seniors tend to get shoved over to the end?

Unnecessary B.C. hospital deaths Wed Apr 7, 9:02 PM VANCOUVER (CBC) – Two patients at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital have died after an outbreak of the C. difficile bacterium. Thirteen other patients are also infected with the so-called superbug, according to the Vancouver Island Health Authority. The authority said Wednesday that the two patients who died were elderly and had underlying medical conditions. The latest death occurred Tuesday and is suspected to be due to the bacterium, while the other patient died April 1 from a confirmed C. difficile infection. The bacterium causes flu-like symptoms and severe diarrhea. This is the third outbreak of C. difficile at the hospital in the past two years. Hospital staff are now wearing protective clothing such gloves and gowns, and cleaners are using stronger disinfectants to try to contain the outbreak. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100407/canada/canada_britishcolumbia_bc_c_difficile_nanaimo_deaths
Besides the related shit diseases deaths what I do rightfully also do hate also is the smell of shit in the halls when the patient has done a big job in their diapers and no one has yet cleaned it. I smell it too often too.
Now all of the heart problems are for sure caused genetically, or by the food you eat, or by lack of physical activities, exercise, or old age and also by unbeneficial stress, and even medical neglect.
Having now personally met at least a hundred doctors, I know firsthand that when it comes to the really serious sickness, disease treatment, recognitions now too, most of the doctors still cannot tell the difference here between a patient’s ass and their elbow in reality, and they the doctors on their own cannot diagnose a disease properly, for they do mostly all rely heavily on external medical tests generally done in the emergency departments of the local hospital, which still tend to be the one place best equipped to do so too, and when any of the doctors do even prescribe a medical test, of the common half a thousand available, they next tend to only do 1 or 2 tests and they do thus too often neglect many of the possible serious diseases the patient may have. On top of that do rest assured that 40 percent of the medical patients in Hospitals will now next get sicker due to medical errors, medical neglect, medical incompetence and hospital acquired diseases too.
When you get old, over 65 here in Canada, a rather poor medical services is what most of us can expect to see, now to get, in terms of valid medical treatment too, and even decades later after when I had first encountered it too in the Hospitals and in the old age Convalescent homes . Having now spent recently 4 months visiting, seeing many patients in Hospitals and old age Convalescent homes I again can certainly tell you what you can clearly expect to get and what I saw, and also as to what the difference between them the Hospitals and in the old age Convalescent homes tends to be beside my now seeing too many persons dying there.
1 – Firstly for the seniors in both places,the Hospitals and in the old age Convalescent homes, they do tend to provide mainly second rate doctors, or doctors in training, either young, inexperienced doctors or those who have retired and are out of the medical loop. Not the kind of doctors I would even want to see even if I was healthy now. The doctors in Hospitals they do rather come and see the patients once a day and only during week days, and the doctors in old age homes they tend to see the patients once a month.
2 – Now in both of these places, in the Hospital and medical convalescent old age homes, they do tend to too often have the worst, inexperienced, unqualified, persons as medical and support workers who are undeniably unqualified, and they also are even undeniably short staffed now on weekends, holidays and night shifts as well. Even though the sick people tend to be sick any 24 hours a day seven days a week. Forget now also about seeing any doctors here during this period even. Never mind a decent nurse too.
3 – It amazes me how they all the Hospitals and in the old age Convalescent homes do tend to receive the same government funding but the quality and the amount of food, portions given out to the patients does tend to significantly vary now too from one institution over the other. Some places try to feed patients who are unwilling to eat, others do not bother at all!
4- It seems no matter where you go the Nurses still undeniably do have a very difficult time in giving the patients their proper medicine on time. and in one place your 8:00 am medicine can be given at 10:00 am or 11;45 or not given at all .. and yeah they got their false excuses.. coffee break..
5- Then there are the too common male sex maniacs in wheel chairs in old age homes that I often see, saw who do pry about looking for a helpless single, all alone female, even in a wheel chair, and they do try to sexually force themselves upon her, do rape her. Generally there is not enough medical, or supervisory staff to insure this does not happen.
6 What they call now the recreation programs for seniors, for which some dummies, fools are being paid for too, beside sitting at the boob Tube all day is worse now over them being in Kindergarten as well..
Recently an aged senior was in his local hospital the LGH because of Bronchitis, and firstly he managed to pick up a second hospital disease, VRE, and next he had tried to go to the washroom in the middle of the night, he had called for help, rang the buzzer but no one came to help him, so when he tried to walk on his own to the washroom he next had slipped and fell onto a chair hurting his ribs. Although the hospital staff was told immediately next morning that he was now in pain there too, and what had happened, even the nurse and doctor on duty now included, it took three days of coaching by me and him for them to do an x-ray of the this patient’s rib, something that should have been done immediately too
And you should see how disturbed both the new immigrants and also the very educated people, even university professor now too, do get when they read my own medical services witness blogs about the Lakeshore General Hospital for they are aghast, shocked.. One of the many things that have shocked me was the admission, confession of many hospital workers of their now becoming totally indifferent to the needs, even the many deaths of the patients. And they do falsely claim, cop out, an invalid justification for this callousness that it is a direct result of them being on the medical job now for a long time, thus them now getting used to the dirty aspects of the environment.. or rather in truth them succumbing to the negative reality that they were still bad medical workers to start of with. There is still never an acceptable excuse for anyone to accept the neglect, the abuse of one sick person and no matter what their age is as well now.
Here is what I find amazing, I live in one of the largest cities in Canada and in the local hospitals I still rarely can find, and talk to a really competent dietician, dermatologist, or pharmacist. TOO MANY GENERAL PRACTITIONERS DOCTORS ARE NOT COMPETENT DRUG DOCTORS, OR DOCTORS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE. Convalescent homes tend daily now to dispose loads of pills to their seniors and yet they tend to not have an adequate pharmacist or doctor on their staff to check the pills side effect, as I have recently even found out firsthand too.
The union, representing 55,000 nurses across Quebec, has sought a reduction of mandatory overtime hours, and limits on recruiting nurses from private agencies. Some nurses report regular double shifts, especially those with less seniority but anyone who goes into nursing expecting 9-5 hours, week day hours is a fool.. for many people are often sick 24 hours per day, and seven days a week and require permanent nursing care in hospitals and old age homes included.
and speaking of pain management … here is what I too have clearly noticed other peoples real pain does not bother too many medical staff cause it is not their own, and so they still do not care to do much about it.
So heavenly minded and no earthly good still too. Too many nurses I have encountered are busy playing doctors instead of giving out the pills, if they want to be a doctor go to a medical school for 12 years first.
SASKATCHEWAN (CBC) – A newly released study suggests a third of Saskatchewan seniors who live in nursing homes have been given the wrong medication some time over a one-year period. The report from the Saskatchewan Health Quality Council, released this week, looks at a variety of different aspects of health care, including post-heart attack treatment, asthma care and the drug management of seniors. It said there has been “modest improvement” in recent years, but more work needs to be done to reduce the rates of wrong drugs given to seniors. “Potentially inappropriate high-risk medication” was given to more than one in three seniors in long-term care in 2008, the report said. About 21 per cent of nursing home residents were dispensed the wrong drugs over an extended period. The rates are somewhat lower for seniors living in their own homes about 15 per cent were “chronically” dispensed high-risk medications they didn’t need. The dangers of improperly medicating a senior are something Judy Vermette is well aware of. The wrong drugs nearly killed her 82-year-old mother five years ago when a care home nurse mistakenly gave her medication meant for someone else. “You could not wake her and you couldn’t get any sign from her at all,” she said. “The doctors even admitted she might not pull through.” Fortunately, her mother later recovered, Vermette said. The Health Quality Council is also concerned about how often prescriptions are written for benzodiazepines, a class of medications prescribed for anxiety and insomnia that has been shown to increase the risk of falling. “Sometimes these medications are maybe even short-term fixes, such as the benzodiazepines, which help to control behaviour and that kind of thing, and yet have long-term ill effects,” said Health Quality Council spokeswoman Marlene Smadu. Kim Schmidt, an operations leader at Sherbrooke Community Centre, says one problem is that many residents arrive on medications they shouldn’t be on. She also says care facilities must change some practices, like prescribing drugs too quickly. “We need to look deeper than just what is showing on the surface as a symptom,” she said. Vermette agrees, saying fewer mistakes would happen if staff had the time to review their actions. The Quality Health Council is a provincial agency that collects and analyses data on health system performance, including patient satisfaction. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100624/canada/canada_saskatchewan_sk_seniors_drugs1006

I HAVE YET TO SEE ANY RESULTS IN THIS MATTER
MY FATHER HAS NOW HAD 3 PATIENTS IN HIS ROOM AND 2 OF THEM HAVE DIED IN THE SAME HOSPITAL ROOM DUE TO UNNATURAL DEATHS, FOR THE DOCTOR HAD OPENLY DECIDED TO LET THEM DIE. THE DOCTOR HAD PRIOR TOLD ME AND THE OTHERS HE WOULD LET NATURE TAKE IT’S COURSE.
ONE GREEK PATIENT FROM Dollard des Ormeaux HAD RECEIVED 2 HEART STOKES IN THE HOSPITAL AFTER BEING ADMITTED EVEN, IMAGINE THAT HEART STROKES, BECAUSE NO ONE HAD BOTHER TO GIVE HIM ANY BLOOD THINNERS.. SO HE FINALLY GOT A FATAL STOKE AND DIED. THE UPSET PATIENTS DAUGHTER NOW BLAMED THE INEFFECTIVE NURSES FOR HIS BAD CARE AND HIS DEATH. NURSES FIRSTLY TAKE ORDERS FROM DOCTORS AND CANNOT PRESCRIBE MEDICINE ON THEIR OWN..
NEXT A FRENCH CANADIAN PATIENT FROM Dollard des Ormeaux MR. PLOUFFE , HIS SON ALSO HAD CAME TO THE HOSPITAL TO VISIT HIM, AND THE SON IMMEDIATELY WENT TO LOOK FOR HIS FATHER’S CLOTHES THAT HAS BEEN MISPLACED. THE FATHER SAID TO HIS SON WHEN CAN I GO HOME AND THE SON SAID YOU ARE NOT COMING HOME I AM PLACING YOU IN AN OLD AGE HOME. THE NEXT DEPRESSED FATHER STOPPED EATING HIS FOODS. THE NURSES WHO BROUGHT THE FOOD TO HIM SAID IF HE WS NOT GOING TO EAT THE FOOD THEY WERE NOT GOING TO FEED HIM CAUSE THEY WERE TOO BUSY TO DO SO, AND THEY DID NOT FEED HIM THEY JUST TOOK AWAY THE TRAYS OF UNEATEN FOOD . FIVE DAYS LATER THE PATIENT NOW STARVED TO DEATH DIED EVEN WHILE I WAS THERE TODAY. THE SON WAS TOLD HIS FATHER DIED, HE CAME MERELY LOOKED AT HIS FATHER AND IMMEDIATELY WENT AND TOOK HIS CLOTHES AND LEFT. WHY BOTHER ABOUT THE CLOTHES EVEN?
Now seeing these dead people dying unnecessary has been one of my most ugliest, unwanted, horrid experiences in my life one I really cannot easily forget.

A potentially deadly strain of fungus is spreading among animals and people in the northwestern United States and the Canadian province of British Columbia. The airborne fungus, called Cryptococcus gattii, “This novel fungus is worrisome because it appears to be a threat to otherwise healthy people,” The new strain appears to be unusually deadly, with a mortality rate of about 25 percent among the 21 U.S. cases analyzed, “Between 2003 and 2006, the outbreak expanded into neighboring mainland British Columbia and then into Washington and Oregon from 2005 to 2009. The spore-forming fungus can cause symptoms in people and animals two weeks or more after exposure. They include a cough that lasts for weeks, sharp chest pain, shortness of breath, headache, fever, nighttime sweats and weight loss.http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE63L66H20100422 It will likley soon hit all of Canada too.
Charest’s popularity has sunk to an all-time low in the wake of several scandals and an unpopular budget that included new taxes and fee hikes.
Family Minister Tony Tomassi has been besieged by allegations of cronyism in the awarding of daycare contracts.
Meanwhile, Justice Minister Kathleen Weil has had to cope with the allegations of one of Charest’s former justice ministers that he was pressured to name Liberal-friendly judges to the bench. Recently, however, Weil seems to have taken over from two other cabinet colleagues Christine St-Pierre, the minister responsible for the status of women, and Yolande James, the immigration minister as the government’s spokesperson on the difficult debate over the accommodation of religious and cultural minorities.
