CANADIAN HEALTH CARE medical cartoons


While Automobile traffic accidents are the number one cause of death for Americans, Canadians  ages 3 to 33 ad while Automobile traffic accidents are the most common source of personal injury the real  Statistics still indicate that hospital deaths due to hospital acquired sickness, medical errors, medical negligence exceedingly surpass all of these numbers. And yet here not enough is being done about this and why is that?
The parents Lisa Guerin and Jonathan Hope  of a 16-month-old girl who died  are guilty of failing to provide the necessities of life, a judge ruled The two were ordered to stay in custody until March 19, 2010 when a date will be set for sentencing. This also applies to all bad doctors and nurses, Health ministers now too  who fail to adequately look after any sick patient. 
Now for any ostriches who cannot face negative realities then visit


Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services,
So who is really looking after my rightful complaints about the bad   Hospitals ombudsman, doctors, nurses in reality? finally someone claims they are?



The really sad, unacceptable aspect of our still often inadequate, poor medical care system in Canada is that our pretentious governments do not manage it at all, as a result it has a lot of short comings, serious short  comings one tends to find out only when one gets sick and goes to the doctors, hospitals.. and why does our governments, leader not care? they are still getting paid to look after us firstly.. and unless that is changed for them they will continue that way too..

Last Monday FEB 22, I had now met in the emergency ward of the MONTREAL WEST ISLAND Pointe Claire Lakeshore General Hospital a patient who was next to my father, As you know my father was admitted here also due to cardiac failure, water on the lung on Monday now, M Bergeron ( NOT HER REAL NAME ) M Bergeron now she had fallen on the street on the ice had broken her arm, and had also hurt her hip. The hospital had put a cast on her arm, and next the emergency room, triage nurses had wrongfully tried repeatedly to force the patient to walk so that she could be discharged. The patient was crying in agony in pain while the cruel, despotic, unsympathetic nurses at the LGH were forcing her to walk in my witness as well. And days later the same patient was still in the same bed and had not received any appropriate treatment for her leg, she now was transferred to the overflow ward where she was next forgotten by her original doctor, even though finally it was confirmed that she did have a fractured hip. I am confident that had she been a young person she would have got the treatment within 24 hours. On Friday Feb 26, now five days later, the nurse on her morning rounds discovers M Bergeron had now a high temperature, was vomiting, and had diarrhea, and M Bergeron was send to the isolation room in the same section. The Nurse next phoned a new doctor from the ER to come and see her which he did about 10.30 AM, THAT SHE TOO NOW HAD THE nova VIRUS, FOOD POISONING VIRUS, THAT WAS RAMPANT ON THE FOURTH FLOOR, the LGH orthopedic ward, so also it was very likely the visiting doctor from the orthopedic floor who had visited her in the first emergency center that passed it on to her, cause she was not seen by any doctors in the overflow section prior to today, and I have been there for the whole week now too with my father. The new emergency doctor phoned the original doctor in my presence and complained to him he had neglected his patient. M Bergeron and arranges medical tests CT scan for her, which were done about 3.00 pm today. About 7.00 pm next during evening shift M Bergeron had shit in her diaper and she as I had heard had called both senior nurses on duty to change her diaper, and they had refused to do so, it was supposedly below their dignity to do so, AND THE MALE ORDERLY HAD GONE FOR HIS BREAK, AND SO M Bergeron SHE LAY THERE IN HER SHIT, AND M Bergeron HAD NEXT ASKED ME TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. SHE ALSO COMPLAINED TO ME SHE WAS FREEZING IN HER ISOLATION ROOM, AND I TALKED TO THE NURSES ON DUTY BUT THE NURSES ON DUTY THIS EVENING NOW STILL REFUSED TO CHANGE HER DIAPER AND COULD NOT HELP HER WITH THE HEAT PROBLEM.


I know from personal experiences and that even of another family member, My father, the after Emergency Hospital visit medical follow services at McGill University Hospitals especially  such as the Montreal Jewish General Hospital, and the Lake shore General Hospital tend to be very pathetic, unacceptably disastrous, really bad, inadequate   compared to other Hospitals.. I saw firsthand how my own father got poor, useless medical follow-up in the last 2 years at the LGH. Now one in 20 Canadians who has a heart attack – a common cause of rehospitalization – is urgently readmitted within a month of being discharged, according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information. Now also  include  some other common serious sickness as well. An analysis published last year in the New England Journal of Medicine showed the chances of rehospitalization only increase over time. Generally, the sicker the patient and the longer and more frequently they spent time in hospitals, the greater their chances of dying or being rehospitalized. For one example, many patients who leave hospital with chronic illnesses such as heart failure or diabetes are at high risk of being readmitted. But often, they are left to cope on their own. Many patients do not get clear instructions on what medications they should be taking, and they frequently have difficulties making additional, specific doctor appointments to continue treatment outside the hospital. A number of patients return because they do not have access to a competent family doctor and so are regular users of the emergency room. 

Medical reports awaited on three drug mistakes at children’s hospital Vancouver Sun –  March 1, 2010 CALGARY – One year after several medication errors at Alberta Children’s Hospital, there are still lingering questions about what went wrong in the three cases – including two non-fatal drug overdoses 

Now speaking about useless medical care, deaths..  Relocate all the doctor’s offices and related tests to the local Hospitals  and have them work the evening shifts,   there for a start.. 4 to 12 pm,  What you did not notice that many local Hospital  facilties are not being even  used evenings?

You should know by now the standard tests that most Doctors prescribe, X-rays and EKG’s, etc.,  now  tend to be propitious, basic, pretentious, too often useless, a waste of tax payer’s money as well especially if you are seriously ill..  That is cause there are good and bad doctors, and most of them seem to be bad these days. Don’t believe me find out for yourself.. I recently saw 4 incompetent doctors who ran the same useless tests, cause they did not know what else to do in fact.. needless to say they were of no legitimate, adequate  help to me.. yes they admitted there was a problem they were unfamiliar with though.. so what.. what about their real medical help? I measure real  results not the degrees they supposedly do have..

 My neighbor and his wife go to one local McGill doctor and he said there is no cure for your wife’s arm pain. he goes to another McGill doctor and the doctor says there is a cure, it requires surgery. How can you have one Doctor  so stupid now ?
More and more people I talk to agree with me that there are now much to many indifferent doctors and nurses, social welfare workers now too  need to be held criminally responsible for their false, past neglect, abuse  of their patients, people in their care  in reality. I agree. I rightfully do now demand it.

Doctors are ordering tests or procedures not based on the  ACTUAL need but a RIGHTFUL CONCERN OF LIABILITY or increasing their income is still  the biggest waste of health care dollars STILL…

Don’t get the false impression that Canada’s health services is really bad, it is not, it is adequate, but it can be improved, and so can the services we get from the local doctors now too. I found that the Health care in Montreal Quebec  is one of the best in Canada.. and I too have had serious problems.. including congestive heart failure, heart attack, heart surgery, diabetes, etc., and I continue to get good care in Montreal… the care you get depends on the doctor you selected as well.. there are badly managed  Hospitals and bad doctors  in every province in Canada too as well as good ones.. The McGill University Hospitals still do  tend to provide some of the worst medical care over other local Hospitals too.. While  the health care in Montreal that still needs great improvements surpasses significantly what I have experienced in Calgary where the cheap Albertan government has not given enough budget money for the proper medical care, surgery firstly..
 The doctor  examining an elderly patient  who was complaining of his chronic pains next says , “I am sorry there is nothing I can do for you”. The Patient replies, “Doctor if it was your own pain you would have found a cure for it.”

The type of service you will get really depends on the type of doctor you have, on the province you are in, on the specific hospital you go  to as well and it varies.. from bad, very poor to great. You may have to go to at least 3 different doctors as a result.
 Here is an undeniable fact.. Most of the major sicknesses such as cancer, heart sicknesses are firstly   actually due to poor eating habits, eating junk food.. it is a fact that a proper eating diet can help a lot of people not to get sick again too.. thus the regular services of a dietician, which also is less costly over a visit to a doctor too,  would help almost every sick person in Canada, even to reduce next  the number of Doctor, hospital visits and yet Hospitals, governments wrongfully  refuse to  provide such services exept to the selected few patients.
A man approaches the front  reception  desk of a local Hospital and says to the receptionist ” The Hospital   Ombudsman  says I am crazy”. The receptionist replies “the Psych ward is on the second floor and someone can help you to get there”. He replies “Good and thank you, I want to commit her to the ward”. In reeality she next quit her job..
A causally dressed visitor was standing by a recently admitted patients in the Hospital triage section, discovered many persons coming to ask him medical questions, and when he asked them why they were coming to him they had replied ” I thought you were a doctor cause you were standing there doing nothing”.
Williams’ surgery available in Canada: cardiologists –  Canadian cardiologists say they perform the exact surgery that Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams underwent in Florida, despite his assertion that it was not available in Canada.
Many matured senior patients with serious medical problems they tend to return solely to the Emergency rooms because they they have learned that family doctor does not have the necessary medical equipment, tools, tests  to diagnose their SERIOUS MEDICAL PROBLMES, only the Hospitals tend to have them generally and so they now are regular users of the emergency room..
Proper medical care and not pretentious Medicare is still our Canadian right.
And anyone who denies it needs to be incarcerated!
Doctors, Nurses, hospital administrators, Premiers, Ministers included.
We pay a significant part of the Doctors, Nurse education, development, Training
and then they falsely try to abuse it to us by their deliberate poor performances.
Most Canadian Medicare, Hospital administrators  in reality still do not not try to improve the medical care system, do not  try reduce the Medical costs, nor do they try to identify the management of chronic diseases as a way of improving patient care and reducing hospital costs. Why should they after all the more patients, the more important they feel they are.
It is billed by the London Police Department Chief as “the best (shooting) range in Ontario.” At $22 million, it is certainly modern but one of the features might sit poorly with judges and civil libertarians.  While police can shoot a fleeing suspect that presents an imminent threat to the public, it is relatively rare in most crimes and raises obvious questions under Tennessee v. Garner. The entire project will ultimately cost $32 million and the facility’s gun range is billed as training officers to do a range of shooting,   

Meanwhile  a Toronto doctor is facing a disciplinary hearing over allegations he approved special meal allowances for people on welfare and disability programs according to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.  Dr. Roland Wong,  said he continues to approve applications for the special diet but only if he believes patients have an underlying medical condition that qualifies them for the financial supplement.  “Today, I signed maybe five, four,” he said. “Sometimes more, depends.”  He accused the auditor general of having a very “slanted view” of the program, and suggested he should be looking instead at the woefully inadequate support payments paid to people in need.  Wong said he wasn’t overly concerned about the disciplinary hearing because it was based on a complaint laid against him by a municipal councillor.  “This is a case of politicians against a physician, not the patient against the physician,” he said.  The Special Diet Allowance provides up to $250 per month to a person on social assistance who requires special foods for such conditions as diabetes.  Councillor Doug Holyday said  . “This can’t go on.”   

Quebec and other provinces have no such adequate help program and why?

Mean while a   Whitby law firm is filing a $20-million class action against Moonshin Tattoo in Mississauga and the Peel Region Health Department, alleging that the parlour used unsterilized needles when tatooing as many as 3,000 people over a four-year period — exposing them to possible diseases. It’s the second such lawsuit filed by lawyers Todd J. McCarthy and Sean A. Brown, of Flaherty Dow Elliott & McCarthy — former legal home of federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty — which earlier sued Longhorn Custom Body Art, an Oshawa tattoo studio, in a $10-million lawsuit after Durham Region health authorities urged 2,000 clients to get tested for HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. The suit alleges that  health authoritues were required by law to inspect the tatoo parlour at least once a year. The  claim alleges the first inspection at Moonshin took place in early 2005, shortly after the tattoo parlour opened. However, the suit claims that next inspection was not until Feb. 11, 2009, and found that as many as 3,000 individuals may have been exposed to equipment that was not adequately sterilized.
