Canada does not have the best Medicare, not even close.. why?

conser-1

Canada’s health-care system compared to other public systems world wide is a let down and the US private system also doesn’t score very well internationally.

.

There are many , many reasons for a start the Doctors and nurses who kill patients, neglect them do not face any negative consequences at all for a start.

.

I have had many American tell me in the US that we have a good Medical system because it is free.. Being free does not  insure a good medical care system if Doctors and Nurses are rarely supervised. The public-private Swiss health system comes first.

.

The Canadian  system also like the U.S. system does  sucks up loads of  money all without producing discernibly better outcomes.

.

In most categories, Canada comes between the middle and the bottom – except in spending, where Canada is in the upper third, per capital.

.

It is the  politicians crap that  Canada having the best Medicare system in the world.

.

” Among 11 countries, Canada ranks last or second-last in getting same- or next-day doctor appointments, finding after-hours care, waiting for more than two months for a specialist appointment or four months for elective surgery.” Getting to see God can be a real nightmare..

.

Canadian patients spend more time in Hospitals per stay, than anywhere else except Japan. Why?  There are too few doctors to look after the patients, the medical system relies on interns  in training and nurses mostly still for the average patient care. Having more beds will not help .

.

Governments, and Hospitals are working  next, now on kicking more people out of hospitals, to  get them out more quickly and still not rather insuring they get helped medically.

.

What does the public think of Medicare? You have to  firstly get admitted to the hospital to find out you are not getting the best care  there possible.

.

When people ask for  “fundamental changes,” what do they mean..  They firstly do want the bad doctors and bad nurses, bad  hospital administrators, fired, discharged not covered up over and over again..

.

The problem is there is not only a lack of accountabilty, but the money is not properly managed.. Ottawa transfers $32-billion a year to the provinces for health care,  but how well is it spent? Many useless  medical test are done in hospitals still as well.

.

So “Ottawa spends another $7.2-billion for specialized health care, including $2.5-billion for aboriginals, $1.1-billion for veterans, $571-million for the military and $614-million for the Public Health Agency. Ottawa also spends money to sponsor medical research.” So what?  Putting more money in pails full of holes is wasteful..

Catching the liars in the act in Quebec’s Medicare, Hospitals

canada-seniors-abuse1

 

 

The Big Lie–

The triage doctor says now do not  worry we will not let your old mother starve to death, or not give her water to drink, we will take good care of her and help to make her better…  TRANSLATION – the nurse next says if your mother  does not want to eat or drink she will die likely within  5 days, cause we will not force feed her, we are not allowed to do so..

The next big lie

WE HAVE AN EXCELLENT PALLIATIVE CARE UNIT FOR SICK SENIORS  AND WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE REALLY  GOOD CARE OF YOUR MOTHER..

TRANSLATION.. IT IS NOT FREE, FREE MEDICARE WILL NOW NOT COVER IT,  RATHER  SHE NOW HAS  TO PAY FOR IT.. SO TELL US HOW MUCH MONEY DOES SHE NOW HAVE.. WHO ADMINSTRATES HER ESTATE?

Private (Residents admitted on or after July 1, 2013 $77.64 $2,361.55
In Quebec Daily Monthly
Standard Room $35.61 $1,083.00
Semi-Private Room $47.87 $1,456.00
Private Room

 It is still a criminal act now for any doctor, nurse, hospital  administrators, medical supervisor not to provide medical care to any seniors. How many have been prosecuted for this in the last year?

The Unseen elephant in the room.. what to do with the elderly?

canada-seniors-abuse1 
Financially subsidising a relative who looks after a parent is a good idea, less costly too over an old age home.
.
At the present time in the province of Quebec even there is room for one in eight seniors that need to be placed in an old age homes, seniors who can no longer look after themselves and their family refuses to do so ..
.
On top of that there is not enough existing staff to look after the seniors in the old age homes.. Doctors and Nurses included.. Seniors tend to be more ill, sicker, need more nursing care, more distribution of  pills, more looking after, more bed linen changing too,  and a ratio of one nurse to 40 senior patients is totally inadequate.. never mind if they have seriously ill patients.. and forget any care during the night even..
.
So what is the government best proposed solution on this matter.. Euthanasia, kill them.. especially if no family members object and no family members visit them for two weeks.. you just stop feeding them and stop giving them any water and they will be dead within 5 days..
.
MONTREAL — Seniors who need health care but do not want to be institutionalized will soon have the means to be looked after at home, Quebec Health Minister Réjean Hébert said But it is not proven to work yet even.. Critics say the bill opens the door to private-for-profit companies rather than through the public network..   http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1277885/quebec-s-self-insurance-approach-to-home-support-expands-options-for-seniors

Quebec has one of the worst Hospital and medical  services and it neglects seniors too..  Dorval old age home death deemed murder..The coroner’s office conducted an investigation into the man’s death following an incident at the Maison Herron, at 2400 Herron, Dorval Quebec https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/this-has-been-going-on-wrongfully-for-ages-unchecked-still/

Two Montreal-area caregivers accused of mistreating elderly patient Two Quebec caregivers face criminal charges after an elderly woman living in a South Shore long-term health-care centre was allegedly abused and given a noxious substance. … Workers at long-term care facility allegedly illegally administered medication to patient. Immacula Eugène, 51, and Marie-Margaret Pétimé, 46, were each arraigned in Longueuil on Tuesday on two charges of drug trafficking, two of conspiracy and two of administering a noxious substance. Eugène was also charged with armed assault. The alleged crimes took place last July. The 87-year-old victim died two months later but it was only on Nov. 21 that police received a complaint from someone close to her.

New stricter rules for private seniors’ homes are on the way.

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. https://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.. https://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/

Subject: I have said for decade now seniors are being murdered in Canada’s hospitals
.
So you think you may enjoy your retirement  instead of being ”  MURDERED IN HOSPITALS “
.
ESTHER 4: 13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
.

In Canada, especially in Ontario and Ontario, we have  a very great undeniable, false problem of neglect in the treatment of older patients in the hospital and in old age homes’
.

Upon admission to the hospital you are requested to sign a form declaring whether you wish to be revived in case of emergency, or not. This document is called a D. N. R. or Do Not Resuscitate form. They give you two choices.
.
The first choice, you are told is to accept being kept alive as a living vegetable, completely insensane.  The second you are told is to let nature take its course. Then these utterly helpful people will even sign the form for you. All nice and neat.
.

However this is the biggest song and dance act to be put over the public since Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. What you are actually agreeing to is for the Hospital to totally neglect you or even pump you full of enough morphine to overdose a football stadium of people.
Our health care system and old age homes seems perpetuates the belief that a person who is over the age of sixty-five has somehow managed to reach their lifetime expiry date, a best before date if you will for people. And now that these old people are in the hospital using up resources and funds best reserved for younger people, now well you can’t really expect for the hospital to fix them back up, can you?
After all as far as many of the hospital staff is concerned this old person has managed somehow to have a long life already and that is enough of that now.
You really can’t be expecting the hospital staff to put themselves out and actually care for these old people, too, can you? I mean why give an older person in the hospital a blanket when you might have to wash it then, or food when that will just encourage him to stick around. And if they have anything close to a complex condition, well there is that neat little DNR now isn’t there? You don’t really have to work to fix up these people when that signature gives you an out for some very bad behavior indeed.

The problem with this whole attitude ( besides giving me nightmares of genocidal dictators) is that it completely negates the concept of ” best practice”. loving one another ,

Best practice is the long and firmly held belief that there is only ONE way to treat EVERYBODY. Not when you feel like it or just when you really want to or when someone gives you more money to behave better. Every time for everybody. Because when you start to slack or fail to preform, its just too easy to keep on giving less then your best.

If you take a gander at the rising medical malpractice deaths in hospital across the country and through the United States, you will soon realize that the concept of best practice has gone the way of the proverbial washed baby with the dirty bathwater.
.

Now Hospitals when they are being asked to put forward their best game have no best game left. Only the same sloppy seconds they choose to inflict upon older people. Not keeping sterile technique. Not caring for basic needs ( feeding washing having water and blankets for the bed available). Not being concerned about basic medical protocols.
.

For example twisting the patient while shifting them in bed even though the patient is suffering from a shattered pelvis which has not been casted ( because it is just too hard to do with those old bones, you see).
Then using drugs upon that patient which go against the  doctors and specialists orders for that patient, (because that’s the way the hospital usually does it). Such as give that broken bone patient blood thinners which absolutely stop any bone repair from being made( one of the functions of blood thinners are to stop the clotting process, bone healing is in itself a clotting process).   And then refusing to give the patient bone building vitamin supplements that the doctor has ordered under the reasoning of the staff that vitamins and minerals aren’t really a serious medicine and so it doesn’t matter whether or not it has been given.
.

Hospitals can get away with this heinous behavior because it mostly affects the older more vulnerable sections of our society.
.
You see hospitals understand that they can indulge themselves with this sort of ageist behavior because we the people are still watching that Fred and Ginger song and dance act that they bedazzled us with in the first place.
.
The ageist behavior of the hospitals has lead us to believe rightfully that when old people go into hospital there are automatically at risk of dying.
.

But this only comes to pass because of the hospitals actions or mainly bad in-actions. Not because of theme now being any more innate vulnerability in the average mature person then there is in a preteen child.  Both groups Children and Seniors still do need a certain amount of care taken. But older persons are given far less care over the children .
.

“I have personally come up against this exact sort of ageism, many times hearing that  sixty is a good long time to have lived. This behavior not only diminishes all of us, separating us from our true humanity, our beliefs in charity and that older adults are precious contributors to our own lives and not to be diminished by these vultures upon the vulnerable.”
.

What they do so many now do inflicts harm upon all of us seniors? It is a spreading epidemic of ill will cast out upon those who only seek to enjoy  their golden years without the machinations of their caretakers contributing to their  early exit. Or shall I be more plain spoken and say what it is indeed, an execution. At what cost do we allow this to happen?
.

The insurance company too are doubly hit by this, first with the hospital costs and then with the life policy payout.
.
The stores and service sectors that older people patronize lose out.  Real Estate suffers because that extra condo is never purchased.  Younger families looking for affordable housing cannot move into established neighborhoods because to make the most of the estate, it is sold to developers.   And those young people if they get sick can not count upon the care of the hospitals because the staff are too jaded with their good enough practices that they become unable to set right your average medical situation.  Not being able to do CPR. Not recognizing the signs of poisoning, heart attack drug toxicity or allergic reaction. They only move now upon the threat of being sued, and even that last resort of public outrage is hamstrung with government legislation. All in an attitude of don’t do what’s best, only protect your butt.
.

This whole situation is an attack directed at  the Zoomers age group. This D.N.R. nonsense has to be rewritten re-regulated and completely re-thoughtout. It only acts as a legal sop to cover the actual act of involuntary euthanasia upon our senior persons. This has built to the point where we must act if not for ourselves then for everything we hold dear.  Our families and our liberties are threatened by this madness.  Should we not take this task to hand one day it will be your children in the hospital facing these torturers, Facing their own unsought for demise. And then who will stand for them?”
.
and the governments falsely do nothing about it.. why?

Finally Police probe McGill hospital contract

.

.
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.  https://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.

.

He claims he can be a competent premier but  Dr. Porter’s relationship with Dr. P. Couillard, who was Quebec’s health minister  and now the Premier of Quebec too, at the time, appears to be far more extensive than previously thought.  Couillard, claims he did not know that his long time business partner was a crook must have really really bad jugdement  or is lying.  Not only did Couillard and Porter go on fishing trips when Porter served as chief executive officer of the MUHC, he says, but Porter claims that Couillard phoned him every day for political advice.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Arthur+Porter+dishes+dirt+Harper+Couillard/10188705/story.html

but the same person Dr Couillard could not spot a crook even as he worked with him for years..  but I can work with a person one day and likely tell you if he is a crook, immoral or not..  and that is why I tend to spell Liberals as Lieberals..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/09/18/unbeliveable-disgusting-what-a-clai/

PS The penalty for while collar crimes still tends to be ludicrous.. A judge has sentenced a bookkeeper to two years in prison for defrauding a family-run Toronto business of $653,000. Christine Trotter started crying Tuesday when Justice John McMahon told her he could not agree to the conditional sentence recommended by her lawyer after she pleaded guilty to one count of fraud over $5,000. http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/crime/article/1261898–bookkeeper-jailed-2-years-for-defrauding-toronto-firm  just 2 years?

Seriously I would now still investigate all purchases made at the McGill University Health Centres Hospitals..

Now how about my complaints  also about the too often perverse Quebec and Hopsital Ombudsmen, Hopsital administrators who falsely  tend to turn their blind eyes to the inadeqaucies, wrong doings of their assciates and subordinates  coming along too? https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/08/16/the-dishonest-pretentious-quebec-hospital-ombudsmen-health-ministers/

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.

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.

Curing cancer: a reality check Not likley soon..

.
Anyone who is a adult should know easily by now that the world has much too many crooks, and that even a university degrees does not turn all of the persons into honest persons.. some of them are still crooks. Any doubts? just think when was the last time you heard the last time about an honest lawyer?  I personaly had met some bad university medical doctors, Researchers who boasted they were good at getting research grants, but they admitted they also were abusing them.. crooks like to boast too.
.
One of the pet peeves I have is how many people unwisely give their money to bad churches, bad organizations, the bad Salvation Army and even to bad, wasted medical research..
.
Helping to find a cure for cancer or hearth attacks is still too often wasteful,  just more money abuse when the major reasons for the related  deaths is caused by one’s personal lifestyle, even their eating habits. and not aging even. so what does research do to help in this are.. not much good still.
.
Cancer became the top killer of Canadians in 2011.. Curing cancer often leads the most hoped-for list when you ask people what medical breakthroughs they would like to see. But trying to answer the question of whether the war on cancer is being won means stepping into a contradictory tangle of statistics, anecdotes, hopes and fears.  There has been remarkable progress against some childhood cancers but very little change in mortality rates for some other forms…”there will not be one cancer magic bullet.”That’s partly because there are 200 or more forms of cancer. “We shouldn’t neglect the fact that cancer is a very complicated and complex disease,” said Dr. Ben Neel, director of the Ontario Cancer Institute at Toronto’s Princess Margaret Hospital. “Even lung cancer is probably 10 different types of molecular disease.”    The biological basis of cancer also makes a single silver bullet less likely to work… to win the war against cancer, it needs to be fought on all fronts, including prevention… cancer incidence rates could be cut in half through these preventive steps: Quitting smoking: 25 per cent to 30 per cent of cancers are caused by smoking, but a quarter of the population still smokes.  Avoiding drinking alcohol in excess. Increasing physical activity.  “I think everybody’s scared to use this cure word,”  “There are patients living six, seven years still disease-free that should not have lived for six years. I would be tempted to call that a cure. We’ll see.”  “Unfortunately, our success in reducing the mortality from cancer over the past 60 years has been very, very modest,” . “So I don’t think, as I say, that it’s realistic or even necessary to talk about curing cancer in order to make a big impact.” He sees some downside in promoting unrealistic hope from a cure or positive prognosis for some patients with terminal cancer. Patients may request more aggressive therapies that may not actually be helping them, “We have seen over the past decade that more and more patients with cancer are dying in the ICU than dying while receiving chemotherapy, going to the emergency room and spending hours and hours on a stretcher in the final month in their life.” an estimated 177,800 new cases of cancer expected to be diagnosed annually. http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2011/12/30/cancer-chasing-cures.html

MONTREAL — The pink ribbon has long been synonymous with the fight against breast cancer.

McGILL UNIVERSITY EVEN HELSP TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOW GETTING CANCER.
“McGill under fire for corporate-funded asbestos research  A letter signed by 76 international health experts and academics makes two requests of three senior members of McGill’s Board of Governors (BoG): that they cease inviting Roshi Chadh…a – who is involved in exporting asbestos from Canada – to sit on the BoG, and to cease using and promoting the use of asbestos. The letter states that McGill “has a long history of serving the interests of the Quebec asbestos industry,” including an “alliance” between the Quebec Asbestos Mining Association (QAMA) and former McGill professor John Corbett Macdonald in 1966. According to a recent episode of CBC’s The National, QAMA provided Macdonald at least $1 million between 1966 and 1972 for research into the health effects of chrysotile asbestos. The letter states that Macdonald “had significant influence around the world in putting forward information…that was favourable to the industry’s interests.” “http://www.mcgilldaily.com/2012/02/mcgill-under-fire-for-corporate-funded-asbestos-research/

 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.  If you are a medical professional, a medical administrator, or a health minister and you had now failed to prevent the death of one persons even, or had specialty failed to properly treat their medical condition then that certainly is a prosecutable criminal offence and for certainty you need to be incarcerated for your coldness,, indifference towards others now too .http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2010/02/mcgill-medical-doctors-in-montreal.html

Quebec’s asbestos industry draws new salvos from politicians, academics…. MONTREAL — Quebec’s asbestos industry is coming under increasing fire, with  two recent, damning documentaries airing on CBC and Radio-Canada, renewed calls  from politicians in Quebec City and Ottawa to outlaw the cancer-causing mineral,  and a review launched into some industry-funded research at McGill this  week.

On Friday, the opposition Quebec Solidaire called on the provincial and  federal governments to stop financing the asbestos industry and to ban export of  the mineral.

Parti Quebecois mining critic Martine Ouellette told the media she wants a  parliamentary commission to look at the issue.

The calls are partly in response to a documentary aired on Radio-Canada  Thursday evening “that reveals the true face of a lobby that in the past has had  no scruples at all about manipulating the facts to the detriment of human health  to defend its financial interests,” according to the Quebec Solidaire  statement.

McGill University in Montreal announced Thursday it has launched a  preliminary review into the work of professor emeritus John Corbett McDonald,  after the university received a letter last week signed by dozens of academics,  physicians and researchers accusing some McGill researchers of being controlled  by the asbestos industry.

C. difficile- the shit disease

AT LEAST 25 PERCENT OF THE NURSES, NURSES ASSISTANTS, ORDERLIES

RUN AWAY FROM DOING THEIR PATIENT’S WORK

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..

The charge card happy local family doctor

,
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
.
Many bad North American professionals tend to behave unprofessional, abuse their clients, citizens cause
1: They personally do not have enough love for others
2; The love of money motivates them, the love of which is the root of all evil
3: they tend to reflect societies poor moral values
4: they all do need to be still continually supervised in reality
