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.

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
