ST-HYACINTHE, Quebec — Following a Quebec coroner’s report investigating the deaths between May and November of 2006, where more than 50 victims were affected by a C. difficile outbreak at Honoré-Mercier Hospital five years ago, his report was scathing detailing even – hands insufficiently washed, rooms improperly disinfected, a serious lack of health and safety guidelines prevalent at the hospital according. Next more than 50 victims of a C. difficile outbreak at the Quebec Honoré-Mercier Hospital five years ago – including the families of 16 people who died as a direct result – they all will split a $1 million settlement of a class action law suit. Likley it will be less than $50,000 for each family after the lawyers fees and court costs are included. The out-of-court settlement must still be submitted to a judge for final approval.
Note that while this is the first time in Quebec history the much too many people who contracted C. difficile in a hospital now some, a few were even compensated financially, it is also note mentioning that still not one Government or Hospital administrators, employee, the people directly responsible for the patients deaths were ever rightfully prosecuted for their manslaughter, their unacceptable actions and this is still unacceptable. The citizen undeniably had to take the law in their own hands while the Quebec Government, Federal Government, Health Ministers, departments did not do anything legally about it since they clearly and wrongfully do not value the life of even one citizen.
Quebec is already known to be soft on the crimes involving the abuse of it’s citizens by the civil and public servants, government officials. So is Ontario, BC and Alberta now..
We go into hospitals to receive treatment to an illness or disease, but those who receive invasive surgery are at risk for several different hospital acquired infections. Many of them preventable too. http://publichealthadministration.wordpress.com/2010/02/15/keeping-yourself-safe-against-hospital-acquired-infections/
Get real!!!! Everyone now must act now to get hospitals reporting C. difficile and deal with the problem too.
Infection-control gaps at hospital highlight report Toronto Star – A confidential report on Ontario’s worst outbreak of C. difficile reveals major gaps in infection control at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington – findings that suggest other hospitals in the province are still vulnerable today.
TORONTO – A deadly outbreak of a highly contagious superbug at an Ontario hospital claimed the lives of one-third of the patients afflicted with the disease, a far greater toll than previously believed. . http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080508.wcdifficile08/BNStory/specialScienceandHealth/home
AND BY THE END OF THE YEAR THOUSANDS MORE WILL HAVE DIED NEEDLESSLY TOO. unacceptable.. deal WITH IT TODAY!!! We do not live in the dark ages for shit Diseases is caused by poor cleanliness, poor hygiene, poor sanitation at the Hospital, who have been hiring NOT ONLY LAZY BAD employees but they have FOR AN UNACCEPTABLE DECADE NOW TOO AND MANY THEY been cutting back on their MAINTENANCE COSTS and this has been NOW CLEARLY LEADING their criminal murderous acts OF THE CITIZENS. Do take ALL OF THE HEALTH MINISTERS KNOW BEFORE A FIRING SQUAD AND SHOOT THEM, for THAT WOULD BE A RIGHT START TOO.
The Government of Ontario even is putting more lives at risk by not moving more quickly to require hospitals to report infections like C. difficile in the wake of 62 deaths at a hospital in Burlington, Ont., An estimated 1,200 people will die before the end of the year as a result of such infections, which can be prevented if more dramatic action is taken..” Hospital Union Leaders do now even confirm that “Because of the financial pressure, cleaners and cleaning supervisors are told to prioritize and rotate cleaning schedules. There’s not enough attention being paid to the basic cleaning of the facilities, and as a result, there are huge problems.” Ironically the demand for the workers to work to the slow down rules by the union had often also escalated these Health problems now too. The union is calling on the province to hire more hospital cleaners and require hospitals to review their infection-control practices to prevent the kind of outbreak experienced at Burlington’s Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital and other Ontario hospitals, plus the unions as well all need to allow the hospital workers to work more effectively now too. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/08/shit-disease/
“A recent study published by the Journal of General Internal Medicine reported a 10 percent spike in teaching hospital deaths during the month of July due to medical errors.” CNN Health Blog
Some things seem to never change, such as cold calloused, pretentious governmental Ministers, Health Ministers and their subordinates especially included, mostly all who really do not care if the others live or die, as long as they alone survive it seems still too.
Hospitals in Canada are mainly still here for the good care, safety, health of the patients. But this is not happening too often. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/11/08/report-card-failed-canadas-hospitals-and-health-ministers/
