New stricter rules for private seniors’ homes are on the way.The Quebec government announced Wednesday it wants better-trained staff in more than 2,000 private residences, where more than 100,000 elderly people live. It wants to pass new regulations to make sure every private seniors’ home follows the same rules, including rules on bathwater temperature controls – a move that comes after at least ten Quebec seniors have died after being scalded by bath water in recent years.The government also wants tougher standards for sprinkler systems, more training for staff and two new categories of residents – autonomous and semi-autonomous – with new procedures for both. Residences that don’t comply will face consequences, said Health and Seniors Minister Réjean Hebert.“If some of these residences are not conforming to those rules, they will shut down,” he said. “I think it’s for the benefit of the elderly people who will find security and well-being in other places.”

Pauline Marois Quebec government’s proposal to create a new watchdog to oversee universities and Hospitals now as well is valid, natural.. some of the biggest crooks are even the educated folks.. and our Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and the Police, RCMP are also now very poorly managed too ALL AT THE TAXPAYER’S EXPENSES. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/education-does-not-insure-morality-nor-are-professionals-better-persons/
I have been posting about the unacceptable seniors abuses in Quebec’s old age homes, hospitals , for 2 years to no avail. The too often lazy, immoral, pretentious Police themselves do not want any responsibility in the matter. Unenforced laws are still bullshit as a result.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/18/i-wrote-for-about-2-years-even-on-the-net-that-the-quebec-government-allows-the-abuse-of-the-seniors/
Not much of a surprise? The tip of the iceberg is being revealed only as the overall depth of corruption will take much more time apparently to uncover, corruptions that likley permeates the whole project. Birds of feathers tend to flock together. And no one should tell us that these initial suspected persons, now were even just isolated individuals acting on their own without the vast help and knowledge of any others now too. Higher education never insures one’s good moral standings. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/
Quebec’s police task force on corruption is probing the billion-dollar contract for McGill Montreal mega-hospital awarded to a consortium led by Montreal engineering giant SNC Lavalin Group Inc. SNC-led consortium had won the McGill University Health Centre contract. Police raid the McGill University Health Centre . Up until six months ago, the hospital project had been overseen by Riadh Ben Aissa, a former head of SNC’s construction division, and also a central figure in an ongoing scandal. One of SNC’s original subcontractors in the project was a company controlled by construction magnate Antonio (Tony) Accurso – a controversial figure who now is also facing fraud and corruption charges. The hospital deal was put together under the watch of the previous chief executive of the health centre, Arthur Porter who left his own job under a cloud late last year. Arthur Porter had been appointed chair of the federal government’s security-intelligence watchdog agency, when his African business dealings with an arms dealer were revealed. Dr. Porter stepped down from both jobs. The Quebec government has earmarked $2.35-billion for an effort to reconstruct Montreal hospitals, the lion’s share going to the McGill University Health Centre campus. “Quebec’s anti-corruption unit has put several high-profile figures in its crosshairs since being established last year. It has arrested construction magnates such as Mr. Accurso and Paolo Catania, as well as Frank Zampino, a former city councillor who was the right-hand man of Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/police-probe-mcgill-hospital-contract-awarded-to-snc-lavalin/article4551179/
MONTREAL – A second investigation has been launched stemming from the Police raids at the MUHC’s headquarters. According to a search warrant filed with the Quebec courts, there are allegations that former MUHC Director Stella Lopreste may have defrauded the McGill University Health Centre out of as much as $1.6 million over 10 years.It is alleged that the money was used for the purchase of personal items. Lopreste left the MUHC in 2011. http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/sq-conducting-second-muhc-investigation-1.967628
NASSAU, BAHAMAS — For more than a year, reporters have tried without success to reach Arthur Porter, a mysterious figure who occupied important, sensitive positions in Canada before controversies erupted and forced his resignations. He left the country, leaving serious questions and allegations unanswered.An oncologist by trade, Dr. Porter was appointed by Stephen Harper’s government in 2010 to chair Canada’s Security and Intelligence Review Committee, which oversees the national spy agency, CSIS. He was also in charge of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), one of the country’s largest public health agencies where, it was recently disclosed, a number of financial irregularities occurred during Dr. Porter’s leadership. This week, the National Post found Dr. Porter working inside a private cancer clinic that he owns and operates in this sunny Caribbean city. Would Dr. Porter, 56, ever return to Canada? “What for?” he replied curtly. “It’s a question that I don’t choose to answer at this time.” http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/01/10/the-elusive-arthur-porter-scandal-plagued-former-spy-watchdog-found-ailing-in-nassau/
Dr Arthur Porter it seems to gain sympathy has indicated recently he has cancer and is being treated for it in his own hospital.. well I do not believe him.. he has clearly been a con man and a liar much too long time.
“Executives at engineering giant SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., won’t comment on allegation $22.5M payment linked to MUHC super hospital project. Leslie Quinton, an SNC-Lavalin spokesperson, was quoted in the La Presse as presently not wishing to confirm or deny that $22.5 million of the questionable payments that surfaced earlier this year involved the super hospital contract.” The persons at the receiving end of the bribe as well is yet to be fully confirmed..
Here is what I have found interesting.. Now for decades I too have known that association with money tends to tempt and to corrupt people, the Judas syndrome, and follow the money trail, the oldest rule of Journalism.. and I have even decades ago written that it is still an understated fact that the corruption most often exists firstly in the purchasing, procurements departments even in Corporations, Governments, Hospitals, Public and Civil Services and yet no many persons has been arrested, exposed for that. until recently in Quebec, at least. Now as per the Major Montreal Hospitals and the City of Montreal I too do still just cannot believe that less than a handful of civil and public servants were , crooked in the procurement, tender departments now even for decades.. all an unbelievable unblemished record.. and why was that now realy?
Kuwait deal uses MUHC doctors and nurses A private Montreal company with close ties to the McGill University Health Centre signed a five-year, $86-million hospital-services agreement with the government of Kuwait in 2010, a deal that makes regular use of MUHC doctors and nurses.. Under the deal, the MUHC is to be paid by the private company, Montreal Medical International Inc. (MMI). However, an accounting of those funds has never appeared on any MUHC annual reports or other public document. The Régie de l’assurance-maladie du Québec is investigating the business model of Medical Second Opinion to determine if it confirms with the Quebec medicare law, as MUHC doctors are providing therapeutic advice to patients who have private insurance.
Seriously I would now still investigate all purchases made at the McGill University Health Centres Hospitals..
THE LOVE OF MONEY THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL
MONTREAL – A hospital emergency room might not be the best place for the sick and elderly. The risk of acute infection – mostly respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses – following a trip to the emergency room is three times higher among the elderly, according to a study published Monday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Long-term care patients who spent a few hours in an emergency facility were more likely to get sick in two to seven days after returning to their nursing homes.

A former RCMP officer who claims to have faced racism and bullying in the police force says she was not the only aboriginal Mountie to have experienced discrimination.Marge Hudson, who was Manitoba’s first female aboriginal RCMP officer when she joined the force in 1979, says she quit in 2009 as a result of years of harassment, bullying and racism in the workplace.But Hudson says she was not alone, as almost every aboriginal RCMP officer she knows has experienced some kind of racial discrimination and harassment on the job. Some of them turned to her for help, she added. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/aboriginal-rcmp-officers-face-racism-says-ex-mountie-112640906.html

Contracting the superbug C. difficile in the hospital increases a patient’s stay by an average of six days, putting serious financial strain on Canada’s health-care system, a new study shows.
.( Never mind the fact it kills a lot of people)
C. difficile is a bacteria found in feces that causes severe diarrhea. It’s extremely common in hospitals because people usually contract it after taking antibiotics, which can kill good bowel bacteria and allow C. difficile to grow. What’s more, the bacteria can spread through surfaces like toilets, handles and bedpans, and hospital staff can spread it by not wearing gloves or washing their hands. It’s the most common cause of infectious diarrhea in hospitals, and one in 10 patients who get it will die, regardless of how sick they were beforehand. And according to the study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, it’s filling up already-crowded hospitals and draining the health-care system. U.K. doctors David Enoch and Sani Aliyu say the rate of infection can be cut by making sure heath-care workers practise good hygiene and don’t overprescribe antibiotics.http://www.torontosun.com/2011/12/06/c-difficile-lengthens-hospital-stay-study
It is a major problem that Kills thousands of Canadians every year, amongst other factors such as hospital errors, and our health ministers don’t seem to care…nor the Police that people are getting killed in Hospitals..
by the way there seems an unpopular cure that few want to use..
Medicare is not the place to help doctors make more money but a place to help the sick citizens
Look I am getting realy tired of those too many bad pretentious family doctors, charge card happy quacks is what I call them. Those especially pretentious doctors who especially get a kickback from the local pharmacy that gives them a subsidized rent, and more kickbacks even on how much drug they had prescribed. The doctors even get a report from the pharmacy telling the doctor when the patients prescriptions are about to expire so they the Doctors can call their patients. Then these same doctor make money from the referral fees to other doctors and yes to the private clinics..All this would not be do disastrously immoral if the doctor could have helped me in the first place, but rather mostly too often the doctor did not know what was wrong with me and he or she wanted to do a series of test at a the private clinic, most test were not needed even, tests done mainly to increase his or her earnings, test not realy to help me, when rather next all I had to realy do was go to good triage at the local hospital and they did it all one place now too. I have said it before if you have an abnormal, serious medical problem do not waste your time going to the local family doctor, charge card happy doctor for sure. No wonder medicare is so costly these days..
THIS SAME CLEARLY PRETENTIOUS QUACK EVEN MISSED IT BY A WHOLE MILE.. HE WAS EXAMINING MY FOOD CONSUMPTION TRACTS WHEN THE PROBLEM WAS INSTEAD A CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE. AS THE HOSPITAL IMMEDIATELY DISCOVERED IT

Multiple RCMP errors let Pickton keep killing, inquiry told BCLocalNews – RCMP officers made critical errors in their investigation of serial killer Robert Pickton that likely delayed his arrest until 2002 and let him continue murdering sex trade workers, the Missing Women Inquiry heard Wednesday. Vancouver Police Department Deputy Chief Doug LePard, testifying last week on the findings of his review of the Pickton case for the VPD, said Mounties wanted to interview Pickton in the fall of 1999 about the vanishing women but inexplicably agreed to delay the interrogation when the pig farmer’s brother Dave urged police to wait “until the rainy season.”

RCMP are known to be unprofessional as well as cost ineffective.. even alcoholics and so are many other police forces in Canada now too. I have dealt with the RCMP 6 times and rigthfully have no respect left for the incompetent, lying , pretentious RCMP. In fact I had been abused by the RCMP in Canmore Alberta twice and next I saw firsthand how the RCMP lied, covered up their own..

Demonstrators demand for justice in police shooting death of Alvin … Vancouver Sun – Evan Duggan- The VPD and the RCMP have now asked the Office of the Police Complaint … Hannon has filed a civil suit against the RCMP and the solicitor-general seeking … A large group of demonstrators appeared today in front of RCMP headquarters in Vancouver calling for justice after the police shooting death of 22-year-old Alvin Wright last year in Langley. Wright’s family and friends say they’re not satisfied with the Vancouver police investigation into its fellow police force. Last week the VPD announced there was no basis to charge the Langley officer who shot 22-year-old Wright after his wife Heather Ashley Hannon called 911 to report a domestic disturbance at the home in the 5200-block of 203rd Street in Langley, in August 2010.
