Doctors receiving falsely kickbacks

stephen-harper-1

You all can easily know that I have said before here that one the things that makes any health care system bad is the much too many  money hungry doctors..

Too many Doctors are mainly selfish, self centered, want to get rich fast

Meanwhile  Quebec’s anti-corruption task force suspects Porter and four high-profile  executives involved in the construction of the McGill University Superhospital  were part of a massive fraud conspiracy.UPAC issued arrest warrants Wednesday morning for Arthur Porter, Pierre  Duhaime, Riadh Ben Aissa, Yanai Elbaz , Jeremy Morris. UPAC confirmed  Wednesday that Elbaz – the former associate director general of the MUHC – is in  custody and will be charged Thursday. Duhaime — the former CEO of SNC-Lavalin – will turn himself in to Surete du  Quebec headquarters Thursday morning, He has already been charged with fraud. Ben  Aissa — another former executive at SNC-Lavalin — has already been arrested  and questioned by police for his possible role in other plots. All five are wanted for fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, and related charges.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/high-profile-executives-involved-in-the-construction-of-the-mcgill-university-superhospital-are-charged/

Now Some medical pot producers paying fees to MDs for patient referrals: company, A major producer of medical marijuana says doctors and specialized clinics are receiving kickbacks from some licensed pot producers in exchange for sending them patients, a practice the company calls unethical and a violation of professional.. Where else  are they receiving falsely  kickbacks now too?

EVEN TEN NURSES STILL WILL NOT MAKE ONE GOOD DOCTOR

conser-1

 

I HAVE TO SAY I AM A GREAT FAN OF COMPETENT DOCTORS, PARTICULARLY SINCE I FOUND MOST PEOPLE’S PERSONAL OPINIONS, MEDICAL ADVICE IS CRAP AND TRYING TO DIAGNOSE A MEDICAL SOLUTION TO A SICKNESS ON THE INTERNET TENDS TO BE USELESS AT LEAST 99 PERCENT OF THE TIME STILL TOO..

.

Now I have been to many doctors, and to many Hospitals, I seem to have tried  half of them in Montreal, especially since I have had  two very senior   parents.. so I have been able to acquire a lot of basic medical knowledge  that I have shared on the net  at   http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/

.

Yes Millions of persons have diabetes, and many of them  do not even know it.. Now  diabetes is not to be taken lightly for it has serious negative personal side effects. Diabetes is influenced by genes, and the food we eat, exercise as well.

.

NOW  EVEN MOST MEDICAL PERSONAL  MAY KNOW SOMETHING  ABOUT DIABETES, (SOME HOW I REALLY DOUBT IT AS THEY TEND TO TOO OFTEN FALSELY SKIP MEALS, THAT ITSELF IS A CAUSE OF DIABETES EVEN,)  BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY UNDERSTAND FULLY NOW HOW TO DEAL WITH IT..

.

MANY PEOPLE MAKE A VERY  SERIOUS ERROR AND ASSUME THAT DIABETES IS IRREVERSIBLE.. THAT IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE.. AS TYPE 2  DIABETES CAN BE OFTEN  REVERSED IF YOU NEXT DO TAKE PROPER STEPS TO MANAGE IT..
.
Now I had even too  many Montreal  CLSC nurses wasting hours of my time by trying to have me  explain to them everything that  I had learned from the doctors about diabetes..  but that was, is not my Job to teach her.. The CLSC staff and nurses should already know ALL about diabetes and what is the proper nursing care too.. especially when they deal with a lot of seniors..  And  it is not the Nurses Job also now  to act as a Doctor, to question what the Doctor has told me personally to do in regard to my own diabetes control or that of myself or of my  mother.. she can contact the doctor  herself.. and learn from him..  
.
Note Insulin recommendations  levels   given by Doctors  given   by needles  are not like Pills where you   just take  time.. Needle based insulin has to be adjusted  by all diabetes patients too according to the persons actual sugar level  and also adjusted according  to how much the patient actually eats.. I follow the Doctors  specific instructions now and not the Nurses here too.
.
A CLSC Nurse was complaining to me she was overworked, but it clearly was very apparent to me she was placing herself in a role of a Doctor, diagnosing  sickness and providing medical advice too  but that is not her role firstly even.
.
I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE TOO OFTEN  MET MOSTLY STILL STUPID NURSES, ESPECIALLY THE BASIC ONES WHO DO NOT HAVE A UNIVERSITY DEGREE.. EVEN TEN NURSES STILL WILL NOT MAKE ONE GOOD DOCTOR. Also the good nurses serve the sick patient, the bad nurses bully them..
.
Please  do also inform all of the Nurses even in Quebec to mind their own businesses,  and that their Job is to be a Nurse and not try to be  doctors, and/or try to improve on what a doctor says..
.
.
Let me be clear to you  again and  you can talk to me freely anytime you want too. But  I had made a simple request  that  I do not want  a bad nurse to be thrust upon us, nor to see ever again a bad nurse that has been falsely acting in a dictatorial manner, fighting with me, trying to be a doctor, demanding that I do things for her in my house, nor  does my  mother. Our own witnesses of her poor nursing services Is undeniable. 
.
WHEN YOU HAVE A SERIOUS SICKNESS IT TAKES REAL DOCTORS AND REAL MEDICAL TESTING TO HELP YOU.. AND WHATEVER YOUR PROBLEM IS EVEN SUCH AS  INFECTION, GLAND, HEART, SKIN, CANCER  PROBLEMS TOO NOW.
.
UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE STILL GOOD AND BAD DOCTORS AND GOOD AND BAD NURSES TOO.. I HAVE TO SAY I AM NOT A  FAN OF PRETENTIOUS, INCOMPETENT DOCTORS. FOR EXMPLE I GO TO AN EMERGENCY CLINIC ABOUT MY SERIOUS PAIN, I AM SEEN BY  5  DOCTORS WHO GIVE ME DIFERRENT DIAGNOSIS INCLUDING ALCOHOL, SMOKING, CANCER, HEART PROBLEMS, KIDNEY, LIVER FAILURE, DIABETES AND NONE OF THEM ARE RIGHT..
.
Reminds me a University college graduate had boasted to me he had learned all about Computers in University.. so I put him down in front of my computer and said to him show me what you can do.. I was shocked next  when he really could not use a computer still, he said he had learned everything from a textbook.. He lacked real practical experiences.. that is true  when it comes to many medical personnel,  Doctors and Nurses included.
.
AND  MOST PEOPLE ALSO MAKE A SERIOUS ASSUMPTION THAT DOCTORS CAN FULLY TREAT PATIENTS WITH HEART PROBLEMS, AND THE PROBLEM CAN BE REVERSED.. DREAM ON.. ONCE YOU HAVE HEART PROBLEMS YOU TEND TO STILL HAVE THE MANY NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS THAT CAN BE PARTIALLY MANAGED BUT NOT ELIMINATED.. YOU WILL NEVER AGAIN LIVE A HEALTHY NORMAL LIFE AS YOU DID BEFORE YOUR HEART PROBLEMS.. YOU HAVE NOW A STILL BROKEN TRANSMISSION SYSTEM.

CLSC

.
The CLSC’s are an integral part of the Quebec  health and social service centres  (CSSSs).
.
They provide Free health and social services on their premises, but also in schools, at work and at home. The Quebec CLSC services for the people within the CLSC’s territory include:
  • routine health and social services (nursing care, blood tests, vaccinations, morning-after contraception, etc.)
  • preventive or medical services (medical consultations with or without an appointment)
  • rehabilitation and reintegration services; and
  • public health activities.

 

Sadly not all the CLSC’s are managed the same, as there are some that are very poorly managed and very inadequate still.  That is the same fact with the Hospitals in Montreal too.

.

This CLSC in Rosemount, Montreal has undeniably been the best, they have provided excellent services for my aged mother and many others for many years too but in the end even their serviceses had degenerated.
CLSC  DE  ROSEMONT  2909, rue Rachel Est Montréal (QC) H1W0A9
téléphone 514-524-3541
.
Wera Kambulow (4)
I  had posted here  my views of the Rosemount CLSC   nurses..

Subsequent to this one of the CLSC  nurses in my home had asked me to lobby to get more money for the Nurses.. This is not a normal request and not a rightful  demand by any CLSC nurse.  Let her stay with her job solely. And  it is not the Nurses Job also now  to act as a Doctor, to question what the Doctor has told me personally to do in regard to my own diabetes control ,  that of myself or of my  mother.. rather she can contact the doctor herself.. and learn from him..
.
Note Insulin recommendations levels   given by Doctors  given   by needles are not like Pills where you make just them. Needle based insulin has to be adjusted  by all diabetes patients too according to the persons sugar level and also adjusted  to how the patient   actually eats.. I follow the Doctors specific instructions now and not the Nurses..
.
Please note the same nurse  had often complained to me she is overworked and understaffed.. so what have I do do with that? Maybe she is trying to be a doctor and not a Nurse

Quebec Taxpayers money and Brain Drain from Quebec

55 per cent of McGill MDs who finished their residency in 2009 were practising in Quebec as of July 2011, according to figures from the Canadian Medical Association. That compares with 91 per cent of Laval University medical grads who were still in province, 90 per cent from the University of Montreal and 76 per cent of Sherbrooke University trainees. The largest portion of departing McGill MDs — nearly half of those who left Quebec — went to Ontario. Tuition is heavily subsidized at the province’s universities, with the Quebec Education Ministry estimating it costs taxpayers upward of $160,000 to train each doctor.

A Quebec government under the Coalition Avenir Québec party would use the long-dormant notwithstanding clause in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to try to keep doctors who get trained in the province from leaving, CAQ leader François Legault says. “It doesn’t make sense that from McGill, after five years, half the doctors have left Quebec.”Legault, also has said med students from McGill University are especially guilty of exiting Quebec once they’ve finished their education. McGill makes money from Med students for foreign students that taxpayers pay for.

The question as to why they leave Quebec? is answered by the fact they basically had no initial intention of staying here, they used McGill’s reputation as a stepping stone for their career elsewhere.We should thus stop subsidizing their education.  François Legault had gotten copies of my blog too..

By the way we still need better supervision still of all of our doctors and nurses in Quebec too, and stop the illegal 2 tiered medical care system now too.

We all do deserve to get better and to get real medical services. People often complain to me they received poor medical care from a bad charge card happy doctor, and I know it is true, cause I have experienced it many times.

I have often seen it myself, too many nurses and McGill doctors wrongfully in no hurry to help the really sick persons. Now some of these clearly bad persons who still cannot face the negative reality about themselves, the ongoing especially bad nurses and doctors, lie and try to divert my truth by saying I hate doctors and nurses, so well let me make it very clear I do rightfully hate all bad, pretentious, lazy, no good doctors and nurses who are not doing their jobs properly and are causing other people to continue to suffer as a result.. so should we all.. and they should always be fired ASAP.. Hospital administrators included. Is that clear enough for them now? That includes now also all bad cops, bad politicians, bad church pastors, bad news reporters now too..
The McGill Montreal General Hospital cardiac Unit is a good caregiver but I tend to always to get better services at the University of Montreal Hospitals over the other McGill Hospitals.

Starved to death in a Hospital

 

WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is investigating a complaint from a woman who says her elderly mother was improperly deprived of food and water for 14 days in hospital. Rozalynde McKibbin said Thursday her mother was malnourished for two weeks and left without a bath for 36 days before she died at Seven Oaks Hospital two years ago. “Representatives of Seven Oaks and the Region are hoping to meet with Ms. McKibbin when the review is finished to discuss her concerns,” WRHA spokeswoman Heidi Graham said. Anne Rostecki, 98, died Aug. 31, 2009, 45 days after she was admitted for treatment of a stroke.Three days after the elderly woman was admitted she accidentally swallowed some food and it lodged in her lungs. “They had to pump out her lungs and that’s when the problems . . . began,” McKibbin said, saying medical staff concluded her mother’s ability to swallow was impaired and she could not eat solid food any longer.The adult children said they believed hospital staff would then insert a feeding tube but, on their daily visits, they noticed their mother was steadily losing weight.A flurry of complaints followed, including at least one meeting with the patient care team manager, and a feeding tube was inserted.There were other problems. The family claims the elderly woman was not bathed until 36 days after she was admitted. They claim a bed sore on her tailbone was allowed to putrefy until it was gangrenous.After her death, the family pressed their complaints and obtained Rostecki’s medical records.McKibbin said she was shocked when the records appeared to document the malnourishment and lack of hygienic care in her mother’s medical chart.The authority, meanwhile, offered two independent investigations by senior doctors, both of which McKibbin said she were rejected outright.”That’s not an independent investigation, using your own doctors,” McKibbin said Thursday.”I want them to admit our mother was starved; that she wasn’t kept clean; that she had a wound on her tailbone that was getting worse. . . . The care they give is not quality care and I want them to change things,” McKibbin said http://www.vancouversun.com/news/national/Family+complains+Winnipeg+hospital+mother+starve+death/5585875/story.html

I have even seen and witnessed the same thing in two Montreal Hospitals, West Island Hospital, Montreal and Montreal St Luc Hospital, and I detailed it, even on the net and yet no one investigated my complaints..

How to deal with the bad doctors

People often complain to me they received poor medical care from a bad charge card happy doctor, and I know it is true, cause I have experienced it many times.

00 MEDICARE 23

There are many good ways to deal with this issue:
– One of the best thing you can do is to take someone else with you, a loud mouthed friend to see the doctor, he or she  likley will not abuse or neglect you in front of a witness.
– Most doctors also do want to be well respected in the community and they are associated with a local pharmacy.. so I have often gone to the local pharmacy and told them directly that  such and such a doctor is incompetent and he or she had provided me a very poor medical services.. the pharmacy employees do gossip as well.. and it eventually gets back to the bad doctor and he is made ashamed
– I often tell the doctor face to that when I leave his office I do write a letter to the health minister stating what kind of medical services I got from him, and in one case the medical services next improved ten fold.
– Or I tell the doctors staff that I truly will write a report on the net about my experiences with the doctor… that works well for me too.

00 MEDICARE 1)

I even do lodge in writing many complaint against hospitals all the time still. I WRITE A LETTER OF COMPLAINT AND I HAND DELIVER TO THE HOSPITAL OMBUDSMAN and I also so mail them to to every legislative member and to every MP, major news editor stating that I cannot get the proper medical care.. for in Canada medical care is a right and according to the doctors oath they cannot refuse to treat you..

I disregard everything anyone says to me, on the phone included, I put my complaint in writing..

I still wrote a letter to the Quebec Ombudsman and they appointed a lawyer to review the matter..

Incidental they have a security guard in every hospital and I hand delivered the letter of complaint to him and he passed it on to the right party.

Now somehow I seem to be able to get by all the obstacles, cause I persist  it in writing!

We all do deserve to get better and to get real medical services.

PS: If a doctor now cannot get adequate medical treatment in Ontario then how about everyone else?

The Ottawa doctor at the centre of a public health investigation that has thousands of patients wondering if they inadvertently contracted hepatitis or HIV under her care is the plaintiff in $3.3-million lawsuit claiming she has “limited ability” do her job because of chronic back pain. Dr. Christiane Farazli and her spouse allege wrongdoing by the Ottawa Hospital, two other doctors and a nurse.She claims the medical staff misdiagnosed back pain she was experiencing starting in December 2007. The statement of claim was filed in Ottawa Superior Court in 2009 and amended this year. http://www.torontosun.com/2011/10/19/ottawa-doc-in-public-health-scare-sues-hospital

It is a very low proportion of medical personnel that are disciplined

IMAGINE THIS TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL DYING FROM THIS DECADES OLD SHIT DISEASE AND CONTINUALLY, AND FOR DECADES EVEN IN QUEBEC, CANADA, AND NO ONE IS JAILED FOR IT.. NOT EVEN THE HEALTH MINISTERS https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/shit-disease-c-difficile-related-deaths-highest-in-recent-years-is-still-totally-unacceptable/

.

 

It was interesting to me to read the various news spins being done on a report done by the researchers at Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital about our bad doctors. Supposedly another tip of the iceberg, as there are very low proportion of doctors that are disciplined even because it a serious obstacle course where doctors are not allowed to complain about the other doctors, and ordinary persons, others they are are not qualified to make any medical, professional judgments.

 No such thing as a little bit pregnant, and I am sure that it is same doctors who commit sexual transgressions are also guilty of other major immoral acts such as tax evasions.

I have laid complaints directly against 5 bad Canadian doctors and none were ever properly dealt with. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/09/01/canadas-health-care-fiascos/

Undisciplined Doctors, like Policeman, Nurses do now get complacent with daily routine and forget how to act properly. More attention is needed for safeguard. Present “Discipline means nothing.If you bring a complaint of fraud,cover up,concealment,abuse and report anything that is in violation of the health act don’t be surprised if things aren’t covered up.The fact that 98 percent of patients never receive a penny in compensation is a little more telling.24,000 people die every year in Canada due to medical mistakes. 87,500 patients admitted annually to Canadian acute care hospitals report an adverse event.5.2 million people according to the CIHI reported an adverse event(preventable medical error). The serious stuff that is reported is not made public so people have no idea what is being covered up. ”

TORONTO — One-fifth of doctor disciplinary cases in the last decade involved repeat offenders, suggesting a need for greater monitoring, researchers at Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital have concluded. The researchers looked at the cases of doctors who were disciplined by their provincial medical licensing bodies between 2000 and 2009. Of the 606 cases in total, they found that 92 per cent of those doctors were men and that a majority were family physicians who had been practising for a long time. “It’s a very low proportion of doctors that are disciplined.” But of the doctors who are disciplined, there are many repeat offenders, the research found. Fifty-one doctors committed 64 repeat offences, or 19 per cent of the total offences. Seven of the doctors had been disciplined three times and two had been disciplined four times. The most common violation was sexual misconduct, which accounted for 20 per cent of the cases. Those offences, as well as standard-of-care issues and unprofessional conduct, made up more than half of the violations. Most of the doctors who were disciplined by their local medical licensing authorities over the last 10 years were family doctors who had been practising a long time, a new study finds. The most common penalties in the disciplinary cases were fines, imposed in 27 per cent of the incidents. That was followed by suspensions, which occurred 19 per cent of the time. The median fine amount was $4,000 and the median suspension length was four months.Doctors had their licences revoked in six per cent of the cases. The study appears in the journal Open Medicine. The study did not include the three territories where such information is not publicly available.

And the study also exposes how little standardization there is in Canada when it comes to publicly reporting disciplinary action against doctors, and how much remains unknown about the true scope of complaints against physicians. For instance, some information about disciplinary action against doctors was incomplete on various provincial websites and no information was publicly available from the territories. Chaim Bell, lead author of the study, physician at St. Michael’s Hospital and associate professor in medicine and health policy, management and evaluation at the University of Toronto, said the findings indicate the need for a national system that can allow improved public access to information about disciplinary action against doctors. The study was conducted by gathering publicly-available data from various Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons across Canada, which are medical licensing authorities and conduct disciplinary hearings when there are complaints against doctors. The problem is that complaints against doctors remain confidential unless it leads to a formal disciplinary hearing. While the study notes that cases of negligence, sexual abuse or concerns over professionalism are serious and usually lead to disciplinary action, there are questions about complaints against doctors that may never be released publicly. For that reason, it’s also unclear what the exact number of complaints against doctors is in Canada.It’s also difficult to get information from certain years from various provincial medical bodies, Dr. Bell said.It’s a problem that highlights the need for improved transparency as it relates to complaints against doctors, he said. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health/new-health/health-news/more-than-600-doctors-punished-for-misconduct-in-canada-study/article2197463/

A national database should be created to make it easier for patients to monitor bad doctors, says the author of a recent study tracking physicians who have been disciplined.

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…

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…

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..

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/

Positive Changes need to start at the top

Hospitals in Canada are mainly still here for the good care, safety, health of the patients. But this is not happening too often. For example- All the hospitals must exercise “the greatest control over all aspects of the work over all of the staff, doctors, nurses, technicians included . But undeniably in Quebec too too many nursing employees were, are working for private agencies outside the hospital, so a full accountability, control is clearly lacking. Even in Quebec now there still is a growing reliance by hospitals, old age homes, on using private nursing agencies. Bad nurses and bad doctors rarely face any negative personal consequences. The gravy trains have to be discontinued.

The Quebec government for decades is soft on crime and is wrongfully reluctant to punish any of the bad guys cause they would likely have to start also with themselves.

Too many Montreal-area hospitals, have been or are relying on the agencies as along term solution to fill their staff shortages even in nursing and other health-care professions. Now even the agency nurses cannot provide a continuity of care to patients since the agencies essentially remain a place of transit for health professionals. persons, nurse who too often work in one hospital one week and in another the next, and they also tend to work on different floors, do change PATIENTS daily as well.

The nurses  clear lack of continual interest in or continual knowledge of the patients needs has even caused undeniably and unacceptably too numerous medication errors, and much too often now as well.. that no one in the governments seems to want to deal with the issue again. This is not surprising as not much good is being done and many another governing areas at the federal and provincial, municipal levels, resulting in a degeneration of many of the existing institutions, functions, care.

.

Sadly we all can readily know even for decades, as it is now being fully exposed, it is mainly as a result that there is an unacceptable laissez faire, pass the buck attitude, even in Quebec and in Montreal, especially among the governments, politicians, civil and public servant and by many citizens also, a bad attitude still existing by too many persons, and thus as a direct result too many tax payers paid persons do hide behind this unacceptable malaise as a reason for them not doing anything positive, concrete about the growing visible, clear inadequacies.

.
“Things need to change.”Hani Beitinjaneh, banker. “He listened to the promises made by city and provincial officials, but found them vague and inadequate”. “None of the recommendations have been enacted. “ I started seeing the city the way it actually is.”“The city is crumbling, and nobody is doing anything. Nobody is maintaining it, nobody is taking care of it.” “We assume people are doing their jobs. They are not.” “It’s like things happen and people say. ‘Oh, okay.’ Let’s say you know that this animal bites and it bites you. Oh, well, let him bite another person, another kid. Well no, you can’t. You know that this animal has a problem and you have to fix that problem.” “We expect that in a country like Canada things improve and get better. A mistake is made and then you correct it. “But they are not correcting their mistakes. And then they get busy with other things.” “We pride ourselves on being Montrealers. What is Montreal? Montreal is people, and the infrastructure around them. Then you start to see the decay of the infrastructure. We have to worry about the future of the community we live in.” “It’s not one person, it’s the whole system that needs to be changed. ” http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Hani+Beitinjaneh+broken+hearted+city+breaking+down/5485731/story.html

Positive Changes need to start at the top.. and all of the top management bad persons need to be exemplary fired, replaced immediately in Hospitals, government, governmental departments, police, etc.,

The former PQ cabinet minister -François Legault, co-founder of the new Coalition for the Future of Quebec  would sweep the province if an election were held now – http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Jean+Charest+Liberals+preparing+Hurricane+Legault/5595773/story.html

Quebec Ombudsman Saint-Germain

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/18/how-to-deal-with-the-bad-doctors/

MONTREAL, Quebec — While the Quebec Ombudsman Saint-Germain aired out her criticisms of the provincial bureaucracy hypocritically for her own staff even are still a part of the overall problem, the bad staff who do even falsely cover-up for the bad Quebec’s public and civil servants as I have myself detailed, witnessed.

THERE ARE ALWAYS GOOD AND BAD POLITICIANS, CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVANTS, MANAGERS BUT THE GOOD ONES ARE FEW AND RARE STILL. You and I do still too often encounter the politicians who do criticize the others, bash the other party but they still even hypocritically now do the same thing.

The Quebec Ombudsman HAD RIGHTFULLY now said that “welfare clerks have too much power to make unreasonable demands on recipients of social assistance and as a result, some have been put into extreme poverty”. It is a fact the same persons income next will even almost double if they reach their retirement, at the age of 65. Why is there such a large discrepancy? Quebec Social welfare recipients are clearly now being robbed by the Quebec Government..

The Quebec Ombudsman also HAD RIGHTFULLY noted that the Quebec government “takes too long to offer certain services, notably involving health care”. The Quebec government clearly only provides lip services to the much needed health care improvements. “There was promise of $150 million for the “aging at home” program but it still has not advanced much,” she said. This is a common unacceptable reality.

The Quebec Ombudsman also HAD RIGHTFULLY noted that “waiting times for rehabilitation services that are not under the umbrella of the SAAQ or the CSST, sometimes takes months or years.”

The Quebec Ombudsman Saint-Germain HAD RIGHTFULLY “expressed impatience with the lengthy delays required to inspect and certify private nursing homes. This can lead to instances of gross negligence of patients.” In reality many of the patients are being often abused as I have often witnessed and detailed.

In Quebec it is clear to many that DECADES OLD local political corruptions, realy bad civil and public servants are also falsely responsible for the delays, ineffectiveness still in getting things done, and why the cost to construct or repair roads in Quebec are the main reasons they are 30 percent higher over the province of Ontario.

Yes the actions do speak louder over mere words still here too. APPLIES NOW TO ALL TOO.

FOR EXAMPLE I HAVE OFTEN EVEN IN CHURCHES ENCOUNTERED PERSONS WHO WERE BASHING THE WELFARE RECIPIENTS FOR SUPPOSEDLY ABUSING SOCIAL WELFARE WHEN THE VERY SAME ACCUSERS, BASHERS WERE THEMSELVES COMMITTING MAJOR TAX EVASIONS, UNDENIABLY WORKING UNDER THE TABLE IN FACT.

This reminds me of the too often hypocritical cops arresting the others while they are abusing their own expense accounts, doing work on their own business while on their paid job too.

So what else is new? It is all still unacceptable.

.. when will we get the much needed changes in reality?

Inadequate pain medication in Hospitals, etc.,

One of the hospital drugs in shortage today is even morphine.. Do you think when you are hospitalized with very severe pain that you next will continually get adequate pain killers? if you answered yes you are undeniably now very wrong.. and not even if you are dying of cancer.. and why is that?  In an ISMP survey of some 1,800 doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare practitioners, 80% said they’d had difficulty obtaining a suitable alternative for a drug that wasn’t available. About 150 drugs are currently in shortage, according to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, including sedatives, cancer drugs, and pain medications;

Canada itself is a third world, undeniably a backward country when it comes to dealing with severe pain in sick, dying persons even in hospitals cause due to the war on drugs abuse the necessary pain medications like morphine is still unavailable, falsely restricted.. meanwhile Canada has lost the war on drugs decades ago even due to it’s mostly pretentions police forces, RCMP included and the mafia, criminals have still now even become billionaires as a result.. Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver are part of Canada’s major bad drug import, export centers too.

Despite several border concerns that need to be addressed, the sheer length of the U.S.-Canadian border, at over 5,500 miles and containing vast zones of virtually nonexistent border demarcation, make it unlikely that any amount of funding can entirely address the border issue.Faced with the likely spread of Asian organized crime groups and given border porosity and immigration laws, for the foreseeable future Canada will continue to serve as an ideal transit point for crime groups to gain a foothold in the United States. Asian criminal groups, especially those from China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, as well as terrorist groups, exploit Canada. A report in the Hong Kong Kuang Chiao Ching indicated that Chinese organized crime groups from these regions are increasingly using Canada as a base because of their ability to obtain legal residency in Canada relatively easily and then freely enter the United States. The Canadian Senate committee on national security, identified Canada’s ports as a breeding ground for organized crime and terrorism. In 1996, when the government began to disband the port police service, private security companies began assuming security responsibilities at Canadian ports. The senate committee reported that 36 percent of employees in charge of going over manifest lists for cargo containers at the port of Montreal, 39 percent of the dock workers at Halifax, and 54 percent of the dock workers at the Charlottetown port had criminal records. In addition, several ports do not have adequate identification requirements for employers nor do they have adequate security fencing. Organized crime groups reportedly exercise great control over Canadian ports and have been cited as major conduits for drug smuggling, the export and import of stolen automobiles, and the theft of cargo.The United States-Canada Border Drug Threat Assessment of December 2001 estimates that 95 percent of all heroin entering Canada originates in Southeast Asia. Chinese organized crime groups in Canada almost exclusively traffic heroin produced in Southeast Asia, primarily originating in parts of Burma, Laos, and Thailand, known as the “Golden Triangle” region. http://www.rense.com/general47/canadariddledwithgangs.htm

Unlike traditional organized crime groups such as the Italian La Cosa Nostra, Asian organized crime groups, including both those groups that were established in Canada and those that originate abroad but have members operating in Canada, lack a set structure at the operational level even if a hierarchy exists at the organizational level. http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Asian_Criminal_and_Terrorist_Activity_in_Canada/asian

Even Cancer is diagnosed in over 1 million Americans and Canadians each year, causing death in slightly more than half that number over the same period of time. This corresponds to twenty-three percent of all deaths nationally — close to 1,400 deaths per day. At the same time, it also leaves close to 8 million persons living at any one time to deal with either a previous history of cancer or with known residual disease. Worldwide, cancer incidence is somewhat lower, but it still constitutes approximately 10 percent of all deaths. Most people do not get proper pain medications here too. If someone is terminally ill with even cancer in Canada now and they mostly still will die in a lot of pain  the palliative care doctors and nurses generaly do not give them still the ample dose of morphine to reduce their pain or to make them go quietly.

The past too common abuse of medical pain killers by many persons has led to a restriction of pain killers access in Hospital, the abuse has even supposedly been caused by nurses or hospital staff selling the medication on the black-market, and now every time a nurse has to give a pain killer, which is always now under a lock and key, to a patient she has to first call the Head nurse to verify it, open the cabinet, next a busy head nurse really does not not time for any of this and the request will likley be neglected, and you will be in pain.

I had already witnessed this myself for months in hospitals, and in old age homes too. Don’t expect the mostly buck passing Canadian governments, health ministers to do anything good about this as well. Cause they do not feel any pain themselves.
