Very Wide Regional Health discrepancies

 are unacceptable also

When you and your parents start to get much older you start to have more significant experiences it seems even with Medicare. politicians, civil and public servants too.. You find out sadly how good the services are when you do need them. We have one Medicare system in Canada, but the quality of services differs not only by provinces, cities, but even by local regions.. and why is that?

For example in the city of Montreal I have too often now even been to both realy bad Hospitals and realy good ones.. the bad ones include the Verdun Hospital and the West Island Hospital, McGill Royal Victoria Hospital where the pretentious bad hospitals and even bad doctors provide mostly lip service to health care but they still do not address the persons real medicare problems, while the good ones, the good hospitals such as Hospital Notre Dame, Hospital Hotel Dieu, and I have been seen by good doctors, they do seriously try to help a persons to have all of their health problems resolved. Even in one Hospital such as the Montreal General Hospital you can have a significant variation in the quality of services from one medical department over another. I have often wondered why such a great discrepancies exists, and obviously some local health managers are much better over the others.

Viciously we need a consumer evaluation system, such as the ones in some universities where you graded your own professor annually, even for the doctors and the hospitals.. And we still do need to have much better hospital ombudsman who will incorporate real changes.. so things can change for the better…

..ASAP

Now I have dealt with the CLC clinics in 5 different regions and only 2/5 were acceptable.. the CLC in Montreal,  Rosemount has been excellent, they weekly do effectively visit my mother and check up on her..
