In Canada, especially in Ontario and Ontario, we do even  have  a very great problem with the treatment of older patients in the hospital  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/02/06/so-you-think-you-may-enjoy-your-retirement-instead-of-being-murdered-in-hospitals/

Dr. Nataros  claims that members of the McGill Faculty of Medicine are attempting to defame his name  because he reported an incident in which serious errors were made by senior doctors. Nataros says that the incident, which took place in November 2012, and is still under investigation by an independent ombudsmen, had near fatal consequences. “It was more than just the wrong treatment, there was a missed diagnosis that made it infinitely worse and the patient almost died,” said Nataros. “It was only very quick treatment and a transfer to a tertiary care centre that saved that patient’s life.” According to Dr. Nataros, his decision to report the errors made by senior physicians prompted these doctors to target him with a barrage of personal attacks. He notes that in a meeting last December, two of the physicians arrived with numerous letters collected from different doctors stating that they found it difficult to work with Dr. Nataros. “The accusations were that ‘Alex is challenging; ‘Alex is argumentative;’ ‘Alex does not respect authority,’” said Dr. Nataros. “But, there has never been an issue with my clinical competency or my patient care.”

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/

.

MONTREAL — A phone conversation involving a senior executive at engineering  giant SNC-Lavalin provided one of the first clues that Montreal’s new McGill  University Health Centre superhospital was at the centre of an intricate bribery  scheme.   During the taped conversation, Ben Aïssa — then the head of SNC-Lavalin’s  construction division — was also heard referencing the use of a “contract” to  disguise money transfers involving the Canadian hospital. That contract, which  involved a Bahamas-based company called Sierra Asset Management, was worth $30  million. Ben Aïssa was allegedly recorded saying that “only 22 (million) was  paid.”  “It has been shown that this money, attributed in (company) accounts to a gas  project in Algeria, served materially to influence Quebec bureaucrats with a  view to awarding the contract for the modernization of the MUHC to SNC-Lavalin,”  wrote Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Jean-Frédérick Gagnon http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Phone+conversation+tipped+authorities+MUHC+bribery+affidavit/8582210/story.html#ixzz2XT7OxVpYhttp://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Phone+conversation+tipped+authorities+MUHC+bribery+affidavit/8582210/story.html

MONTREAL —Arthur Porter’s arrest in Panama was the main topic of discussion at MUHC  hospitals  again. Maybe  the arrest  of the former boss will finally clear up unanswered questions about the  financial mismanagement at the MUHC and the alleged fraud in the awarding of the  superhospital contract.  Many nurses blame Porter, the former CEO of the MUHC, for the financial mess  that has resulted in budget cuts, job losses and bumping, which has been  terrible for morale,  http://www.montrealgazette.com/health/Lack+confidence+MUHC+Arthur+Porter+wake/8446669/story.html

“I work at the McGill General – the administrative staff is a NIGHTMARE – they run the  hospital. They run the nurses, the support staff, the DOCTORS. Why? Because they  have a strong union. You say one negative comment their way and all of a sudden  you are sitting with a lawyer, a union rep, and they have disappeared for 3  months of “burnout leave”.. they have no idea what a real burnout is.  Everyone,  including doctors, are afraid to say the wrong word in the fear of losing their  job, their license, their reputation as medical PROFESSIONALS.  And it’s these  same secretaries who will tell their patients the “stupid doctor is an hour  late” … when in fact the doctor just ran out of an emergency case cause their  was no doctor available there and the secretary was too lazy to find out where  the doctor actually was.  I could give many a horror story.”

.

“It’s the McGll pencil pushers who are deciding where to cut and obviously each and  every one of them is necessary to deliver health care; at least in their oun  minds. Perhaps it’s time the government hired a good management consultant  company to look at all non-medical positions at hospitals and see if they are  really necessary. There could be great savings to be poured back in to real  health care.’ “Now rather get rid of 18 administrative pencil pushers instead of the nurses.  Nurses are  needed more than the administrative pencil pushers  and the administrator earn  more than the nurses… .this is a HOSPITAL,  we need nurses  ! ! ! ”   “It’s a huge shame that in the end, it’s the lower employees who suffer, and  most importantly, the patients are paying for it.” “Fire the administrators responsible for this mess, not nurses who actually do  useful work.”

The least needed remain untouched while the most needed are cut. McGll’s Mr Rinfret has  been at Porter elbow through this whole mess making sure the right people were  met and the right doors opened, how he is still there(or actually promoted) is  amazing!

I’ve never felt more sick about living in Montreal, than I do. While healthcare  (and education) are seriously underfunded, we are overtaxed. While the average  citizen suffers, the corrupt politicians, the engineers, the city bureaucrats  and the mob prosper. Taxpayer money ends up stuffed in political party safes, in  off-shore accounts and mafia coffers. I only wish that the Harper Feds would  step in and seize control of Quebec and Montreal. Our municipal and provincial  leaders have sold us down the drain and we have let them get away with this.  Quebec has more similarities with a third world country than it does with the  Western world and I doubt it will ever change. I just want to get out of here  and never come back, even to visit.

Look I had said it a long time ago here in writing that McGill administrators likley run their hospitals the same way  It seems all the McGill adminstrators, negotiators can do is to make problems worse or call the Police The McGill administrators in reality very likley run their hospitals and patients the same way.. very poorly and inadequate.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/education-does-not-insure-morality-nor-are-professionals-better-persons/

MONTREAL — Six Montreal physicians and professors of medicine are speaking out against the way the McGill University Health Centre is run, charging that the MUHC has become “dysfunctional,” that its academic teaching mission is being given short shrift and that the superhospital planning is a mess. Dissident group notes that the $1.3-billion super hospital under construction in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce will not be equipped with teaching rooms or an auditorium for medical students and, as a result, “teaching facilities may have to be rented to give lectures.”

“Furthermore, it is clear that the superhospital will be a smaller building with fewer beds and resources,” the group adds. “Many services have been abandoned, outpatient facilities will be minimal and many medical units still have no idea of how they will be accommodated in the new hospital. The health implications of these changes in hospital function have not yet been addressed.”

Dr. David Morris, a professor of medicine, obstetrics and gynecology at McGill  said in an interview. “These disasters do not occur overnight.” Dr. Andrey Cybulsky, chief of nephrology at the MUHC, said he decided to sign the comment piece because he objects to the MUHC’s “top-down planning process without really much consultation.” its.

Gwendolyn Nacos, a member of the board of directors who was elected by the population, declined to comment on the letter, saying the policy of the board does not allow for individual members to comment to the news media.

The other signatories to the open letter are Dr. Barry Posner, director of the polypeptide hormone laboratory at McGill; Dr. Mark Sherman, interim director of endocrinology at the MUHC; and Dr. Walter Gregory; a senior physician at the MUHC.

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 likely 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/

.

Premier P Marois,  Quebec government’s proposal  to create a new watchdog to oversee universities  and Hospitals now as well is valid, natural..  as 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/

.

MONTREAL – Former executive committee chair Frank Zampino was, for a time, the most powerful man in Montreal, according to the latest witness Rosaire Sauriol  at the Charbonneau Commission — Rosaire Sauriol a witness who may have exerted considerable influence of his own at city hall. the inquiry lawyer Denis Gallant suggested that Sauriol was a major player in that  system and the true second-in-command to Zampino.

http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Zampino+most+powerful+Montreal/8126509/story.html

.

The province’s corruption inquiry has heard that crooked financing schemes also  permeated the federal level, via testimony Wednesday from a repentant  construction-industry executive.
 http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/quebec-corruption-inquiry-goes-federal-witness-says-fake-billing-financed-parties-1.1203764

.

The federal Transport minister asks for review of possible ethics breach by even  a federal judge http://cbc.sh/CRWx3bM

.

” What is important here is that he testified that same schemes of illegal political financing, collusion, bid rigging, fraud , breach of trust, price fixing, were also going on on Federal level!          So this means that probably millions of federal tax dollars were also stolen and that illegal donations were also practiced on federal level at the time!!!! Where is the RCMP? “

.

The already proven cost ineffective RCMP likely or clearly has also abused often taxpayer’s funds itself so it is, was in no position to investigate others.. these corruptions have been on going the last 50 years with the useless Montreal, Quebec and the RCMP police likely part of the problem.. sleeping with the enemy.

.

But do note this the bad Police are still very capable of arresting the poor helpless, defenceless students.. this week 60 arrested in Montreal as tuition protests resume .. so it is no wonder  students despise the police and governments.

Shit disease, C. difficile-related deaths highest in recent years is still totally unacceptable

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

 

not-so-funny1

 Some things seem to never change, such as cold calloused, pretentious governmental Ministers, Health Ministers and their subordinates especially  included, mostly all  those pretentious, bad persons too who really do not care if the others live or die, as long as they alone survive  it seems still too.  Never mind what the big lying spin doctors say! Just cause some doctors and nurses think they are Gods, falsely do refuse to wash their hands, to stay clean does not mean they are right, it only means they are merely still murderers.  

Contracting the superbug C. difficile in the hospital often is fatal or at least increases a patient’s stay by an average of six days, putting serious financial strain on Canada’s health-care system. Seniors and Children are more seriously affected, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/03/children%e2%80%99s-hospital-of-eastern-ontario-struck-by-shit-disease/

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

MANY PEOPLE, HOSPITALS WORKERS THEY DO NOT WASH THEIR HANDS, AFTER THEY GO TO THE TOILET STILL..  AND THIS IS NOT THE DARK AGES NOW! IN THIS MODERN DAY AND AGE THE CHANCES ARE STILL QUITE GOOD EVEN IN CANADA THAT IF YOU ARE ADMITTED TO A HOSPITAL YOU WILL GET A HOSPITAL ACQUIRED SICKNESS AND SOME OF YOU WILL DIE AS A RESULT TOO! WHY?? CAUSE NO ONE PUNISHES BAD DOCTORS AND BAD NURSES FOR A START. IMAGINE THAT YOU WILL DIE DUE SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT AND NO ONE WILL GET EVEN PUNISHED FOR IT STILL. BEING A PROFESSIONAL IN THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IS A SERIOUS JOB AND IT ALWAYS SHOULD HAVE SERIOUS PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY TOO.. SO WHERE IS IT?

We do not live in the dark ages for shit Disease 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 unacceptable CLEARLY LEADING TO 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. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/shit-disease-c-difficile-or-what-ever/

.

A study by Quebec’s public health research institute (INSPQ) shows deaths related to clostridium difficile infections in 2010-2011 were the highest they’ve been since 2004. A total of 619 Quebecers died from C. difficile over the course of 2010 and 2011. And one death is always still one too many here too.. C. difficile is most often acquired in hospital, and  the disease is highly contagious. According to the study, the McGill Montreal General had the fourth-highest incidence rate of C. difficile infection in the period studied, with 15.4 cases per 10,000 patient days.  The McGill Jewish General Hospital was even harder hit over that time period, with 16.9 cases per 10,000 patient days. As I had here seen it firsthand.. It also pops up whenever a house cleaning isn’t rigorous. The causes are are well known. There is a false reluctance to prevent it’s spread by doing more active cleaning as it costs money to do this.

ISLAM WAS NVER A RELIGION OF PEACE  SO DEPORT RIGHTFULLY ALL MUSLIMS FROM CANADA,  ALL OF THEM as they support one another and are murderers.. their hatred of others lies deep within their hearts. Jews and the Muslims historically  false haters of Jesus Christ, Christmas so Justin Trudeau also sleeps with them.. The Arab Spring nations even don’t  ever grasp freedom of dissent, rights of others, freedom of religion.. Justin Trudeau is not at all a real Christian cause God does not murder,  kill, abort  Babies

RCMP  Money pit makes over 8 million dollars per year in traffic tickets catching people leaving Banff Park in Canmore,  Alberta. Cops too busy to catch  the criminals since they are spending their time on money making traffic tickets.  Most cops are alcoholics too so they avoid prosecuting drunk drivers? The bad apples do not fall far from the tree, bad police managers.. The highest officer in charge  should be held responsible to restore public confidence, https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/

NO GUN CONTROL IS MURDER. And  we see what it means for everyone crazy to carry guns in Israel, middle east  where here is never any peace as a result. It’s crazy to escalate the carrying of guns. yes someone should protect us from the NRA. They should reinstall prayer and the Bible in the schools  now too. Gun used in school shootings not banned in Canada http://cbc.sh/oqDM7Yh 
.
– Some of the biggest unprosecuted  tax evaders are the politicians, civil and public servants who abuse the tax payer’s monies.. They are Pirates. Major Corruption, stealing, tax evasions, and false denials have been going on everywhere  the last 50 years.. Follow the money trail, the oldest rule of journalism.. THE QUEBEC CORRUPTION MESS IS STILL JUST THE TIP OF A BIG iceberg.. Govern – less Montreal city hall: continues and the much too many Questionable dealings still are hidden from the public in Quebec .. now if the politicians would tell us where they spend their monies.. TOO MANY government ministers WASTING  taxpayer money.. as per the city of Laval, Montreal do  Terminate all of the existing councilors and replace them ASAP.

Only a fool can think he can dictate to others solely his own terms. LAME DUCK Obama still PLAYING THE BLAME GAME too. Now where are all those many many false predictions that there would be a solution found here before the new year for the US fiscal cliff?
.
–  The federal Government has a new hidden tax, service  fees.
.
– Revenue Quebec,  Revenue Canada and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada says are still  some  of the most ineffective departments.. at the years end many perverse governmental managers do wrongfully waste their excess budgets to get more next year.. Quebec’s anti-corruption squad,  UPAC,   seems still a little vague on where it was going in 2013. What it too has to be told as to what to do?
.
– MUHC, McGill issues,  amazing how many ostriches there cannot face, admit their own undeniable negative shortcomings.  even the Major Professional Corruptions, stealing, tax evasions, and their false denials .. Appropriate even university budget cuts are an essential fact of proper management .. Perverted MUHC professionals .We all rightfully  should expect a hospital like the MUHC to do better ..  Play on words…  McGill University says it s  is separate from MUHC but the McGill logo says otherwise  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/12/22/and-this-type-of-pervrsion-is-not-the-first-time-too/ …

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.

McGill University Montreal

 

Cleaning one’s own house first is in order even here too..  Too many McGill administrators, doctors are already known to be bad managers, money hungry while the university too readily takes our tax dollars now too and too allow falsely often abuses us too.. McGill is already very unpopular amongst the majority of Quebec French speaking persons.

Medical journals still publishing studies that fail to reveal funding: study The findings signal there are still significant gaps in proper reporting of conflicts of interest in medical research, said Brett Thombs, a professor in the psychiatry department at McGill University and an author of the study.

MONTREAL – One of the country’s most prestigious universities faces punishment for boosting tuition fees for its MBA program by nearly 900 per cent in an effort to keep it competitive.
 
McGill University began charging $29,500 annually for its two-year MBA program in September, claiming it was chafing under a provincial tuition freeze capped at roughly $3,400 per year.
 
Quebec’s education department has been battling the move, saying it undermines the key principle underlying the province’s university system: broad access.
 
The government finally announced Tuesday that the Montreal-based school would also be fined for its actions.
 
“It’s an exceptional measure,” Education Minister Line Beauchamp said in Quebec City. “We will have figures on the penalty (amount) soon.”
 
Beauchamp added that it was unacceptable for a Quebec university to charge such high rates for a regular degree program, arguing that it hurt the integrity of the university system.

What is driving Canada’s health costs? Bad doctors, bad Nurses, bad Adminstrators.

 

So how many of you do know that even medical personnel, hospitals  administrators, doctors, nurses, technicians, orderlies need to be still supervised daily, often? As there are really good hospitals and really bad ones..

.

IT IS A SAD CANADIAN REALITY THAT TOO OFTEN THE HOSPITALS DO EVEN A PRETENTIOUS MEDICAL SERVICES, AND THE PEOPLE WHO COMPLAIN THE LOUDEST MAY TEND TO GET A BETTER SERVICE..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/12/19/season-greetings-and/  

 https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/02/23/the-unacceptable-realities/

.

Unions, Medical Societies, Doctors and nurses falsely shut up cause they are part of the problem..    Dream all you want but next still when reality hits you it may hit you really hard.. Pie in the sky means pie in the face next likely too.. A rosy picture about doctors, nurse, medicine will not cover up the reality when you next need real medical care from the doctors, nurse,  hospitals and do personally find out too late what it is really like, too often poor and pretentious and why? Nurses, technicians, Physicians especially they generally don’t earn any more for working evenings or weekends so they choose to work only bankers’ hours  So much for the myth that Doctors became doctors cause they do care about people, they are merely greedy monetary pigs it still seems.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/12/09/all-of-the-governments-canada-wide-are-to-blame-for-perpetuating-the-health-care-mess-our-health-care-systems/

.

 It is absolutely ludicrous as we often read for any news reporter to say that getting more doctors and pay them more money or privatization will basically solve our medical care problems. There are serious other medical management areas that continually need to be revied, looked into too.
.
 As you get older you tend to have more medical sickness, problems and thus you tend to have more experiences with Hospitals, doctors, and nurses, emergency departments. For a start:
.
1 Now undeniably garbage input in means garbage output as well. If you hired a bad medical director, bad ombudsman, a bad doctor, a bad nurse, bad worker, you will get bad results next still, which sadly often is still the case.Better management of our doctors and their monitoring their actual capabilities  is still need here firstly too. . While I  personally do hold doctors as one of the most essential medical professionals it is also still firstly still absurd to say that all doctors are equally competent, capable in fact. I can honestly , safely say that 80 percent of the doctors I had encountered, dealt with in the last 50 years  were incompetent, pretentious unable to specially help me with my serious medical problems, and I had too often resort to go to elsewhere, and that means a lot of wasted medical costs as well in the process.
.
2 Now the doctors do really not only rely on their educations, experiences to adequately help their patients, but a doctor tends to be too often useless with out the proper medical support, medical laboratories personnel, and the related  medical testing now as well. And this is why most really sick people do even need to still go to the Hospital, emergency department to get the overall adequate medical services and that basic  fact will not change.
.
3: As a doctor’s temporary replacement also the demand and expectations placed on the nurses now too is unrealistic, unacceptable. Too keep their jobs and to insure raises nurses may tend to go along with their unrealistic working conditions..
.
Your basic general Hospital nurse has 3 functions.. to perform routine medical examinations on the patients, hand out their medications, and to act as orderlies meeting all of the patients needs as well.. a balancing act they find difficult to do given the number of patients they need to look after. They generally do not get adequate support personnel now in this area as well.
.
4 Finally doing nothing good about any of this will insure that  Medicare will fail overall.. and that seems to be the approach of many of our provincial, federal health ministers still too and it is still always unacceptable.
.
Useless Watchdog ready to handle ER probes
OTTAWA – A new survey says Canadians use emergency rooms more than people from 10 other countries, mainly because they can’t get access to their regular medical care during weekends and evenings.The survey — by the Health Council of Canada in conjunction with international groups — shows that nearly half the respondents who went to emergency rooms in the past two years could have been treated at their usual place of care, if service had been available.By contrast, in Germany, only a quarter of respondents said they were stuck going to emergency because no one else was available after hours.Canadians also rank at the bottom when it comes to landing a doctor’s appointment the same day or next day when they get sick or need quick attention.100 questions posed to about 20,000 randomly-selected people across 11 countries in the spring of 2010. The questionnaire was led by the Commonwealth Fund.
.
Although Canadians take great pride in their country’s health-care system, they have a hard time accessing health care after-hours and are often forced to turn to emergency departments for care when their family doctors are unavailable, The Health Council of Canada’s survey, “How Do Canadians Rate the Health Care System,” used information from the Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey to determine both Canadian views of their health-care system and how Canada’s health-care system compares with those of other countries surveyed http://www.torontosun.com/life/healthandfitness/2010/11/19/16221491.html
.
You do not need health surveys, polls to confirm what I have been writing now about our Canadian health care system all year. There are too many incompetent quacks pretending to be doctors so people with serious sickness have to go to the emergency rooms at hospitals where they find out that the specialist, good doctors work generally 9-5 on weekdays only..
.
Firstly It is misleading to say that the lack of Hospital beds is the sole problem..
.
Do you even  know what the actual patient waiting time  is to see a cardiologist  for example outside of the hospital, or an eye doctor, or a  skin specialist, a knee specialist  for a start?
.
Having been to the emergency about 7 times at least this year alone with my senior father there are 3 things essential for all for a start  to note..
.
1 People who are seriously ill cannot generally  be helped by their family doctors, cause they  still generally  do not have the essential medical skills or even access to the essential medical tests..
.
Only hospital tend to have the best, essential testing equipment, medical personnel .. so the lack of emergency room or hospital beds  here  now is not the sole problem..
in reality rather the root problem is the lack of hospital staff to test the sick people 24 hours per day and seven days a week since the good hospital staff, medical technicians and doctors  tend to work 9-5 and  five days a week only.. and this is the root problem
.
Generally too many inadequate, pretentious medical test are also still being done initially too by the family doctors and emergency rooms one too.
.
2 What the lack of emergency and hospital  beds now also means though is that the patient cannot firstly get medically diagnosed and get get their blood tests done within the first 4 hours..
.
so they can if needed be put into an emergency bed for 48 hours and next if needed.. transferred to the Hospital bed for 10 days at the most where more medical  tests can be done…
.
what we here also really still do need is not more beds.. but hospital medical testing facilities to be available 7 days a week, 24 hours per day..
.
3 The lack of proven, skilled medical personnel is still problem especially, especially   in emergency rooms and elsewhere..
.
for instance inexperienced, nurses and inexperienced  doctors should not be allowed to look after  the patients in the emergency room.. Reality   rather here  we need qualified and experienced medical personnel here and   24 hours per day and seven days a week here.. which too often is not the case too…
.
4 Now I myself have been to the emergency room at least 5 times the last few years.. 
.
Note this I had 5 different doctors at the same hospital give 5 different reason for my sickness initially and none of them were right.. the actual sickness was determined only after I was admitted and serious testing done..
.
In many  other instances the emergency room could not help me or others cause they did not have at all the proper medical experts available at all in the emergency room.. since they tend to  too often concentrate, specialize in recognizing  heart attacks, cancer , broken bones mainly  it seems.
.

> You make some excellent points here.

.

So what then is really behind health-care inflation? The answer would seem to have more do with political decision-making than demographics. As Chris Kuchciak, CIHI’s manager of health expenditures puts it, provincial governments, afraid of runaway health costs, cut back in the early 1990s. Then, in the wake of widespread clamour over crowded emergency rooms and long waiting lists, politicians started pouring more and more money into health budgets in the late 1990s and early 2000s, he said. The fastest growing area of spending lately, by the way, is doctor incomes – projected to reach $26.3 billion this year – followed by drugs, now reaching $31 billion.  http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/10/29/maybe-the-aging-population-isnt-driving-health-costs-after-all/

.

 SO WHO, WHAT ARE THE MAIN  CAUSES OF OUR INADEQUATE MEDICARE (CANADA)? Bad doctors and bad Nurses, bad Hospital administrators, bad health Ministers.. and Putting more money in an unsupervised bucket full of holes was a ludicrous management approach…

and what are the solutions.. from the sole called experts.. more money? REALLY you got to be kidding now

… 

Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, THEY ALL DO need to be supervised, even Professionals, cops, civil and public servants too now,  and corruption still exists in construction, universities, Hospitals, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well  WHEN IT COMES TO MY PERSONAL HEALTH OR ANYONE’S I STILL RIGHTFULLY DO NOT ACCEPT PRETENTIOUS, INADEQUATE MEDICAL SERVICES. Or any neglect, abuses!  ABUSES EXISTS. If they were hiring appropriately trained staff and providing ongoing staff training and support, including criminal PROSECUTIONS AS WELL  they are not going to have this many  reported incidents  IN HOSPITALS, OLD AGE HOMES.

.

The adequate Treatment for Canada’s failing health system firstly is criminal prosecution and jail for the bad doctors, bad nurses for failing to help the sick people adequately and having enforced, Real management, supervision of doctors, nurses, medical and hospital workers.  One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.   

.

Just the tip of the iceberg.. and bad Hospitals, bad doctors, bad administrators like this one abound in Canada in reality.. unacceptable. Fire them all.. Public exposure and rightful prosecution of the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest, the bad persons included. Unacceptable still

The adequate Treatment for Canada’s failing health system, Jail  

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

.

 No one  really checks on the quality, essentialism, effectiveness  of the work provided as well..

 .
It is impossible to say whether Canada’s medicare system is providing value for money because governments are making little effort to measure performance, the federal Auditor-General says.  Nevertheless, she noted that there are “significant gaps in performance reporting so, no, we don’t know if we’re getting good value for money.” For example, Ottawa will transfer $25.4-billion to the provinces and territories this year through the Canada Health Transfer. (That accounts for a little less than 20 per cent of the $128-billion in public spending on health care; private spending accounts for another $55-billion annually.) Ms. Fraser noted that those massive cash transfers come with no strings attached and little monitoring.
 
.
Citizens also now must have the right to sue the governments, and the Ministers, doctors, nurses, hospitals, administrators  for not meeting their own Health care obligations  even for their grossly inadequate provision of health care .
.
 
When a Montreal Verdun Hospital doctors, nurse often says to the  patients as I have witnessed   I cannot do anything  to help you, go to your own doctor when you go home and tell him about it, that is not providing adequate medical aid.   Just the tip of the iceberg.. and bad Hospitals, bad doctors, bad administrators like this one abound in Canada in reality.. unacceptable. Fire them all.. Public exposure and rightful prosecution of the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest, the bad persons included. Unacceptable still http://thenonconformer2.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/a-pretentious-medical-care-system-in-quebec/

Associated Press – November 13, 2010 11:35 AM ET RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – A Richmond hospital has reopened its neonatal intensive care unit after a staph bacteria outbreak that claimed the life of 1 infant and sickened 10 others. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the MRSA outbreak shut down the newborn intensive care unit at CJW Medical Center’s Chippenham hospital for five weeks. Hospital spokeswoman Karen Nelson says one child died.  http://www.wset.com/Global/story.asp?S=13496645 
.
 
Unnecessary B.C. hospital deaths Wed Apr 7, 9:02 PM  VANCOUVER (CBC) – Two patients at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital have died after an outbreak of the C. difficile bacterium. Thirteen other patients are also infected with the so-called superbug, according to the Vancouver Island Health Authority. The authority said Wednesday that the two patients who died were elderly and had underlying medical conditions. The latest death occurred Tuesday and is suspected to be due to the bacterium, while the other patient died April 1 from a confirmed C. difficile infection. The bacterium causes flu-like symptoms and severe diarrhea. This is the third outbreak of C. difficile at the hospital in the past two years. Hospital staff are now wearing protective clothing such gloves and gowns, and cleaners are using stronger disinfectants to try to contain the outbreak. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100407/canada/canada_britishcolumbia_bc_c_difficile_nanaimo_deaths
.
Now this too common still dark ages shit disease spreading in hospitals  is mainly due to poor housekeeping, the bad cleaning of the hospital toilets, one not washing one’s hand  and one using a contaminated phone  too. Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is the one of the leading pathogens causing hospital-acquired infection  . It may cause diarrhea, colitis, sepsis and lead to prolonged hospitalization and death.
.
PETERBOROUGH, Ont. – A hospital in Peterborough has stopped admitting patients to one of its units after an outbreak of three different bacteria. Peterborough Regional Health Centre is investigating several cases of C.difficile, MRSA and VRE. There have been 11 cases of MRSA since Nov. 5. The first of seven C.difficile cases dates back to Oct. 22. There are two cases of VRE.   Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans. It may also be called multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ORSA).  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101113/national/bacteria_outbreak
.
MRSA is, by definition, any strain of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria that has developed resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics which include the penicillins (methicillin, dicloxacillin, nafcillin, oxacillin, etc.) and the cephalosporins. MRSA is especially troublesome in hospitals where patients with open wounds, invasive devices and weakened immune systems are at greater risk of infection than the general public. MRSA strains of bacteria can be found worldwide. In general, healthy people with no cuts, abrasions, or breaks on their skin are at low risk for getting infected. However, the bacteria can be passed from person to person by direct contact with infected skin, mucus, or droplets spread by coughs. Indirect contact also can spread the bacteria; for example, touching items like towels, utensils, clothing, or other objects that have been in contact with an infected person can spread the bacteria to other uninfected individuals. One major problem with MRSA is that occasionally the skin infection can spread to almost any other organ in the body. When this happens, more severe symptoms develop. MRSA that spreads to internal organs can become life threatening. Fever, chills, low blood pressure, joint pains, severe headaches, shortness of breath, and “rash over most of the body” are symptoms that need immediate medical attention, especially when associated with skin infections.
.
Normal skin tissue in people usually does not allow MRSA infection to develop; however, if there are cuts, abrasions, or other skin flaws such as psoriasis (a chronic inflammatory skin disease with dry patches, redness, and scaly skin), MRSA may proliferate. Many otherwise healthy individuals, especially children and young adults, do not notice small skin imperfections or scrapes and may be lax in taking precautions about skin contacts. This is the likely reason MRSA outbreaks occur in Hospitals and in diverse types of people such as school team players (like football players or wrestlers), dormitory residents, and armed-services personnel in constant close contact.  People with higher risk of MRSA infection are those with obvious skin breaks (for example, patients with surgical or traumatic wounds or hospital patients with intravenous lines, burns, or skin ulcers) and people with depressed immune systems (infants, the elderly, or HIV-infected individuals) or those with chronic diseases (diabetes or cancer). People with pneumonia (lung infection) due to MRSA can transmit MRSA by airborne droplets. Health-care workers as a group are repeatedly exposed to MRSA-positive patients and can have a high rate of infection if precautions are not taken. Consequently, health-care workers and patient visitors should use disposable masks, gowns, and gloves when they enter the MRSA-infected patient’s room.
.
One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves. One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..
 .
Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services, and   Profit-hungry hospitals are also overcharging consumers an estimated $10 billion a year in the US. Some deliberately work to keep bills indecipherable.  That’s what Nora Johnson found when her 56-year-old husband, Bill, underwent hip-replacement surgery in 1999. The cost of the operation was $25,000.   Knowing that her family would have to pay a percentage of the costs, she requested an itemized bill. $129 for a box of tissues. “Like the charge for newborn blood tests and a crib mobile. That stopped me in my tracks,” recalls Johnson. “As far as I know, my husband never had a baby.”  But making sure that you are charged correctly can be a daunting task. “That’s what Richard Clarke found out firsthand shortly after his father died in 2000. Despite the fact that he is a former hospital chief financial officer, Clarke admits, sorting through the bills took him a year. In the end he found $2,000 in errors. And, according to a 1998 study of hospital billing procedures, they go to extraordinary lengths to discourage patients from delving too deeply into their bills.”

 .

Yes, you can buy medical insurance to protect yourselves financially against medical emergencies. But will the services, coverage be there when you need it? Nevertheless, experts still do next say reviewing your bill for overcharges is vital. “For one thing, if you are required to pay some of your hospital expenses, either as a deductible or a co-payment, overcharges will come out of your pocket.   What’s more, most insurance plans have a cap, meaning, “Money siphoned off by errors or fraud can chip away at your lifetime total,” says Tom Brennan, Blue Cross/Blue Shield’s director of special investigations. Your credit rating may be at risk too. “Hospitals have become very aggressive about collecting money,” says Nora Johnson.”
 .
Now  we all have heard the phrase “here to serve”.. but dream on if you are dumb enough to believe that.. most people still are self serving to start of with.. The world is full of self serving persons and  Liars, who even  often lie to themselves too, there are too many persons  with a hidden agenda, sometimes not too hidden ones, such as self promotion, financial gains are too often amongst the top of their goals still. Most of us tend not to believe everything we hear, but most of us are still gullible and do too often get taken in Don’t Believe Everything You Read, or see, even if it is writing,  especially if it is a preacher or a politician it now seems.. not even too many of the so called professionals.. Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants, I have never seem so many lying, mental people in one place like I have amongst the medical workers I have dealt with this year in  in Hospitals, convalescent, old age homes who really do delude themselves too often about their self importance and the positive role they are functioning in.  When a medical professional cannot see what they are doing now is simply  so wrong they themselves do now need real professional help too.

SO WHO, WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF EVEN OUR INADEQUATE MEDICARE (CANADA)? Bad People AS WELL!

Health reform, merely not just a political agenda

  
People lie to me all the time, professionals now too, Doctors, nurses, ombudsmen, lawyers, notaries, realtors, pastors, priests, cops, RCMP, Politicians, civil and public servants too.. None of it is acceptable too.
   
Uncaring, pretentious governments certainly  will still not solve the ongoing Medicare health care problems the last many decades now too   Many persons in Canada, Canada wide  are dealing with staff shortages, long wait times for surgery and overcrowded emergency wards, Even the Conservative government now has  had how many YEARS to address the  Health Care System problems. All of the the successive governments in the last 50 years have been failing in this are even year after year. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/11/canada-pretentious-medicare/
 https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/10/11/in-bc-also-demand-resignations-terminations/
 
“People are waiting not just for months, sometimes for years, for hip and knee replacements and other surgeries. We’re just pouring money into a black hole. We need to look at the actual system itself and fix what is not working” “ Reform, reform, reform-that’s the word politicians are constantly using when it comes to paying for healthcare. What they mean of course is “reduce”. “When politicians talk about health reform, they are usually about to gut the hell out of it. This government’s previous performance regarding healthcare has been abysmal. They have cut and cut and cut. IMHO the only reform they intend for healthcare is to reform it into a private system. “  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/edmonton/story/2010/10/24/edm-legislature-health-care.html
 
Health care reform that firstly means now having seriously a better supervision of all of  our Hospital adminstrators, doctors, nurses and now also holding them personally and criminally accountable for their errors, wrong doings. 
 
Citizens also now must have the right to sue the governments, and the Ministers, doctors, nurses, hospitals, administrators  for not meeting their own Health care obligations  even for their grossly inadequate provision of health care .
 
Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services, and   Profit-hungry hospitals are also overcharging consumers an estimated $10 billion a year in the US. Some deliberately work to keep bills indecipherable.  That’s what Nora Johnson found when her 56-year-old husband, Bill, underwent hip-replacement surgery in 1999. The cost of the operation was $25,000.   Knowing that her family would have to pay a percentage of the costs, she requested an itemized bill. $129 for a box of tissues. “Like the charge for newborn blood tests and a crib mobile. That stopped me in my tracks,” recalls Johnson. “As far as I know, my husband never had a baby.”  But making sure that you are charged correctly can be a daunting task. “That’s what Richard Clarke found out firsthand shortly after his father died in 2000. Despite the fact that he is a former hospital chief financial officer, Clarke admits, sorting through the bills took him a year. In the end he found $2,000 in errors. And, according to a 1998 study of hospital billing procedures, they go to extraordinary lengths to discourage patients from delving too deeply into their bills.”
 
Yes, you can buy medical insurance to protect yourselves financially against medical emergencies. But will the services, coverage be there when you need it? Nevertheless, experts still do next say reviewing your bill for overcharges is vital. “For one thing, if you are required to pay some of your hospital expenses, either as a deductible or a co-payment, overcharges will come out of your pocket.   What’s more, most insurance plans have a cap, meaning, “Money siphoned off by errors or fraud can chip away at your lifetime total,” says Tom Brennan, Blue Cross/Blue Shield’s director of special investigations. Your credit rating may be at risk too. “Hospitals have become very aggressive about collecting money,” says Nora Johnson.”
 
Now  we all have heard the phrase “here to serve”.. but dream on if you are dumb enough to believe that.. most people still are self serving to start of with.. The world is full of self serving persons and  Liars, who even  often lie to themselves too, there are too many persons  with a hidden agenda, sometimes not too hidden ones, such as self promotion, financial gains are too often amongst the top of their goals still. Most of us tend not to believe everything we hear, but most of us are still gullible and do too often get taken in Don’t Believe Everything You Read, or see, even if it is writing,  especially if it is a preacher or a politician it now seems.. not even too many of the so called professionals.. Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants, I have never seem so many lying, mental people in one place like I have amongst the medical workers I have dealt with this year in  in Hospitals, convalescent, old age homes who really do delude themselves too often about their self importance and the positive role they are functioning in.  When a medical professional cannot see what they are doing now is simply  so wrong they themselves do now need real professional help too. 

SO WHO, WHAT ARE THE MAIN  CAUSES OF OUR INADEQUATE MEDICARE (CANADA)? Bad doctors and bad Nurses, bad Hospital administrators, bad health Ministers.. and Putting more money in an unsupervised bucket full of holes was a ludicrous management approach…

 and what are the solutions.. from the sole called experts.. more money? REALLY you got to be kidding now… 

Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, THEY ALL DO need to be supervised, even Professionals, cops, civil and public servants too now,  and corruption still exists in construction, universities, Hospitals, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well  WHEN IT COMES TO MY PERSONAL HEALTH OR ANYONE’S I RIGHTFULLY DO NOT ACCEPT PRETENTIOUS, INADEQUATE MEDICAL SERVICES. Or any neglect, abuses!  ABUSES EXISTS. If they were hiring appropriately trained staff and providing ongoing staff training and support, including criminal PROSECUTIONS AS WELL  they are not going to have this many  reported incidents  IN HOSPITALS, OLD AGE HOMES. The adequate Treatment for Canada’s failing health system firstly is criminal prosecution and jail for the bad doctors, bad nurses for failing to help the sick people adequately and having enforced, Real management, supervision of doctors, nurses, medical and hospital workers. 

 https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/14/professionals-what-a-joke/     

The adequate Treatment for Canada’s failing health system, Jail 

Many abuses, errors, deaths, bad   incidents are still undeniably unreported. Ask me about it I saw too many.  When a Montreal Verdun Hospital doctors, nurse often says to the  patients as I have witnessed   I cannot do anything  to help you, go to your own doctor when you go home and tell him about it, that is not providing adequate medical aid.  
 
 Just the tip of the iceberg.. and bad Hospitals, bad doctors, bad administrators like this one abound in Canada in reality.. unacceptable. Fire them all.. Public exposure and rightful prosecution of the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest, the bad persons included. Unacceptable still http://thenonconformer2.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/a-pretentious-medical-care-system-in-quebec/
 
One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves. One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..

SO WHO, WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF EVEN OUR INADEQUATE MEDICARE (CANADA)? Bad People AS WELL!

It is a sad fact of life that even in Quebec that unless you are murdered, violently treated, that when you are abused, robbed, slandered, mistreated, or whatever do not expect the pretentious governments to come to your help or the pretentious self servicing  police for generally you are on your own..The governments and the police mostly will not solve any problems because for the most part they are the cause of the continuation of most of the problems.

It is impossible to say whether Canada’s medicare system is providing value for money because governments are making little effort to measure performance, the federal Auditor-General says.  Nevertheless, she noted that there are “significant gaps in performance reporting so, no, we don’t know if we’re getting good value for money.” For example, Ottawa will transfer $25.4-billion to the provinces and territories this year through the Canada Health Transfer. (That accounts for a little less than 20 per cent of the $128-billion in public spending on health care; private spending accounts for another $55-billion annually.) Ms. Fraser noted that those massive cash transfers come with no strings attached and little monitoring.
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/health-care-systems-value-cant-be-measured-auditor-general-says/article1684077/  
  
So what then is really behind health-care inflation? The answer would seem to have more do with political decision-making than demographics. As Chris Kuchciak, CIHI’s manager of health expenditures puts it, provincial governments, afraid of runaway health costs, cut back in the early 1990s. Then, in the wake of widespread clamour over crowded emergency rooms and long waiting lists, politicians started pouring more and more money into health budgets in the late 1990s and early 2000s, he said. The fastest growing area of spending lately, by the way, is doctor incomes – projected to reach $26.3 billion this year – followed by drugs, now reaching $31 billion. http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/10/29/maybe-the-aging-population-isnt-driving-health-costs-after-all/

Racist Quebecers, JUDGES, Politicians and Ministers tend to be too soft on crimes

 

 

Racist  Quebecers, Politicians and Ministers tend to be guilty of false partiality, are too soft on crimes made by other Quebecers and they do falsely still do prefer to prosecute  the federalists, the English Canadians even those  in other provinces. Explains clearly why very  few Quebec Ministers bother to write to me for a start, and why the Quebec Police are too often lazy, no good cops… but the feds, politicians, civil and public servants included,  are not any better it seems  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/19/it-is-still-a-criminal-act-now/

Subject: Media doggedly pursuing political corruption
 
Media doggedly pursuing political corruption AFP – MONTREAL (AFP) – In the face of a passive political opposition, journalists are increasingly becoming Canada’s top public watchdog with searing investigative reports that have put Quebec’s government at risk and led to the demise of another, observers say.
 
The problem lies largely with the lack of strong opposition parties who are perceived as being part of the system, which is itself suspected of being somewhat corrupt, said Christian Dufour, a politics professor at Quebec’s University of Public Administration in Montreal. Consequently, a new Canadian political tradition has emerged: public inquiries, often established following intense media pressure, leading to explosive revelations at hearings. The result: extremely combative investigative journalism in a country where not making waves is a national trait.”In Canada, media often act as political opposition,” Dufour said.
 
Marc Bellemare, who was Quebec’s justice minister from 2003 to 2004, told a public inquiry on August 24 that he was inspired by Radio-Canada’s investigative journalism show “Enquete” (Investigation) to come forward with accusations of influence peddling in the province’s judicial nominations. He first alleged that the ruling party’s bagmen in those years wielded undue influence on various government nominations, including judicial appointments, when he was interviewed on the show in April, prompting Quebec Premier Jean Charest to call a public inquiry.While the facts are still being argued, the Quebec government’s image has taken a battering.
 
Another star of investigative journalism in Canada is an unassuming man who rides his bike every day to the newsroom of Montreal’s French-language daily La Presse.Andre Noel has broken stories on all sorts of scandals in Quebec, where, he says, the mafia’s foray into politics provides endless fodder for his writings. His biggest “scoop” was the discovery that an influential federal minister, Alfonso Gagliano, was once the bookkeeper of a powerful Montreal mafia boss, Agostino Cuntrera.Gagliano was forced to resign after he was implicated in the sponsorship scandal. Cuntrera was shot to death in Montreal in June.

Noel also uncovered that water meters were offered for sale to Montrealers at three times the price of those in Toronto, and that three French firms — Generale des Eaux, La Lyonnaise and Bouygues — had secretly vied to privatize the city’s water services.

But the province’s leader in investigative journalism remains Radio-Canada’s “Enquete,” hosted by Alain Gravel.

Employing nine journalists, the show has uncovered several cases of corruption and collusion, notably between politicians and the province’s construction sector.

Gravel’s most amusing discovery, he recalled in an interview with AFP, was that of a code involving golf terminology in fixing public works contracts.

“Talking about the fourth hole meant that the price offered should be four million dollars,” Gravel said.

“Our role is that of guard dog. When the police, the judiciary, the political system works well, we’re not needed. If they talk to us, it’s because there’s sand in the machinery,” he said. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/100903/canada/canada_politics_justice_media

    MONTREAL – A former Liberal party official convicted on corruption charges has seen his sentence dramatically reduced by a Quebec court. The Quebec Court of Appeal ruled today that Benoit Corbeil should serve 12 months of house arrest rather than the 15-month prison sentence he was initially given for corruption and fraud. Corbeil also won’t have to repay the the Liberal Party of Canada the $117,000 he admitted to having defrauded from it. Corbeil was the director-general of the party’s Quebec wing when he faked a series of invoices in 1999 and 2000. He was sentenced in 2009 after pleading guilty to drafting the invoices and having received a $50,000 kickback in 1997. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100915/national/crime_sponsorship

    MOVE TO QUEBEC, JOIN THE LIBERAL PARTY AND GET YOUR PRISON SENTENCE REDUCED.. 

    MONTREAL – The Quebec government demanded an apology from Maclean’s magazine on Friday . This week’s cover calls Quebec “the most corrupt province in Canada,” The opposition Parti Quebecois has, in fact, protested the cover. But it also says the current Charest government makes it pretty hard for it to defend Quebec, given of its plethora of political scandals. But Maclean’s wasn’t apologizing…. the magazine said, “but we think that the articles should be read and judged based on their own merits of fair and credible journalism.” Two articles in the magazine’s Oct. 4 edition aim to answer the question of why so many political scandals originate from Quebec — looking at a lengthy list of issues that have dogged the Charest government in recent years and also examining provincial scandals since the 1930s. The article makes brief references to the three B.C. premiers who were turfed by scandal within a decade, and to the dozen members of Saskatchewan’s Devine government who were charged in an expense-account scam in the 1990s. But it offers a far more detailed examination of Quebec’s various scandals while pondering the question of why corruption should be so ingrained in one political culture. The article examines the Duplessis reign, the construction scams of the 1970s, the Mulroney era, and the federal sponsorship scandal. It also points to more recent allegations of corruption at Montreal city hall and the current Bastarache inquiry investigating allegations of impropriety in the naming of Quebec judges. “The slew of dodgy business is only the most recent in a long line of made-in-Quebec corruption that has affected the province’s political culture at every level,” Maclean’s Martin Patriquin writes. “It raises an uncomfortable question: why is it that politics in Canada’s bete noire province seem perpetually rife with scandal?” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100924/national/macleans_bashes_quebec
      
      He got what he deserved clearly  Charest blasts Maclean’s over article  The Canadian Press – Wed Sep 29, 12:53 PM    He Premier Jean Charest of Quebec can clearly now complain all he wants but the damage has been done, the horse have been let out of the barn, and the hay dispersed abroad.. too late to try to get it all back.. a good name is worth more than silver and gold as he too now will find out.. not nice to have other people despising you.. not at all.. He Premier Jean Charest now does not like the world wide negative publicity he got.. but somehow he and his MLA’s seem to still have a hard time listening and dealing with the citizens concerns.. I have yet to receive one decently reply, response to the rightful hundreds of letters of complaints I myself now have sent to the Quebec government this year alone as you all already do know as well Actions speak louder over words.. now how many crooks are the governments really going to put i jail.. or just complain about the publicity they get for doing nothing good again and again and for decades now too.

    My local Quebec MLA’s seem to be so busy chasing the mighty dollar they say they are too busy to talk to me and seem too often to forget about me often, they had not even replied to any of my last letter to them the whole last year now too..

    One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..

    One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.  That also includes the too many bad cops we seem to have now too, and bad civil and public servants too, bad politicians..

    Canada’s Health Care fiascos

     

    Now about the abortion of adults, seniors… Too many doctors, nurses, medical staff  in Canada in reality they do not do all they can to help a sick persons and do instead let them rather suffer, die due to the incompetence, neglect, laziness, indifference   of the medical workers, unions, self regulating medical societies.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/02/15/quebec-doctors-want-a-legal-pardon-for-their-murders-of-citizens-patients/

    Harper’s government ignores the looming health care crisis Vancouver Sun – – ‎Aug 31, 2010‎  While it is largely a provincial matter, Ottawa is heavily involved in its funding and the Conservatives will pay a political price for ignoring it.  The Harper Conservatives have taken a different approach, emphasizing health care is a provincial responsibility. They’ve avoided becoming involved in any health-related debate, be it about Quebec’s new user fees or mushrooming private clinics in Quebec and Western Canada.  While it’s true that health care is provincial, Ottawa foots the bill for a significant portion of health spending, administers the Canada Health Act and plays a role in overseeing and coordinating the health system. Harper knows difficult decisions lie ahead with respect to medicare and that potentially divisive debates on the sensitive subject could force the government to pay a heavy political price. Certainly not the sort of thing the PM wants to see in advance of a fall parliamentary session when people are musing about a possible election.  The current policy of avoidance makes for cunning politics but extraordinarily bad planning.

    Deal now properly with these bad people.. RSVP Thank You.
     
    Let me be very clear to you those liars, the Hospital Ombudsman, those mostly still   imposters, pretenders this year at the McGill Royal Victoria Hospital, at the Montreal west Island Hospital and now those at the Montreal Verdun General Hospital none of them in 6 months have handled any of many many written complaints properly, they all rather they lied, covered up my detailed and witnessed medical inadequacies in there hospitals,   the Hospital Ombudsman all to date   were all overall totally useless in their verbal and written replies to me  and none, none of this was is, acceptable. What was the point of having these all lying, useless and  pretentious ombudsman now?
      
    No one can  deny the wrong doings I have seen at this hospital and now have detailed to all many times in writing too. but what good will you do about it still. And what part can you not understand, read, but the whole world can read it on the net..
      
    WHEN IT COMES TO MY PERSONAL HEALTH OR ANYONE’S I RIGHTFULLY DO NOT ACCEPT PRETENTIOUS, INADEQUATE MEDICAL SERVICES.  All it takes for bad persons to continue to do their wrong doings is for good people not to do anything. Now ask each Hospital  at the McGill Royal Victoria Hospital, at the Montreal west Island Hospital and  those at the Montreal Verdun General Hospital for a copy of all of my written complaints to them and then see their useless replies as well and fire all these ombudsmen for a start ASAP too.
     
    Please also do note that after having written dozens of letters of complaints to both of the Ombudsman this year
     
    – at the Montreal West Island General Hospital this year in regard to my father, and also other patients now too, 
     
    – and at the Montreal McGill Royal Victoria Hospital now too in regard to my father and myself now too specially about their medical inadequacies, unacceptable patient abuses that I had witnesses and detailed in writing on the net too now at this hospital as well   I also next still never got one decent, fully reply  to my letters from both of the Ombudsman I dealt with and this also was never acceptable.
     
    – the Montreal medical establishment had falsely, criminally, immorally failed for the last 3 years in my witness to provide adequate medical care to my senior father   as I have rightfully  detailed to them in writing and to all of you many times.  
     
    – the doctor at the Montreal Verdun Hospital emergency department had incompetent failed to deal adequately with the  infections this year on my feet the last few months, an infection that I still do have and when I complained to the useless pretentious Hospital Ombudsman face to face C. Dion she told me she was not required to provide me proper medical services and if I was unhappy I can go elsewhere. Unaccepable.

    Subject: The clearly pretentious incompetent Quebec ombudsman

    Attention: Quebec Premier Jean Charest

     Quebec’s totally still unacceptable Medicare services, Pretentious, inadequate Ombudsman Sylvie Théroux   O/Ref.: 09-19389  Information Officer, Quebec Ombudsman   

     The clearly pretentious incompetent Quebec ombudsman I have talked to by phone directly today at 2:45 pm, with the clearly inadequate Ombudsman Sylvie Théroux  who visibly   is looking to bass the buck to elsewhere, and does not read my correspondence to her even,  still  she also wants me to do her work, plus  she wants from me a more simplified complaints for my father  months of being abused by the inadequate Montreal Quebec medical establishment, while he was even a ward of the state, abused by the doctors and nurses, social workers  at  3  hospitals and 2 old age convalescent homes. What an unreality dreamer, ostrich she is now who fails to admit that their own  poor past house cleaning now  has led to existence of more of  these detailed inadequacies now as well. She now says someone else will get back to me. I had already told her to contact all three hospital ombudsman, to get their poor, unacceptable  replies to my complaints and fully review them too.     Now I have detailed already many times now all this in writing many times too before to all of  the Hospital ombudsman, to the convalescent home directors, my local Liberal MP, my local Liberal Member  of the legislature, to  the Prime Minister Stephen Harper, to the Quebec Health, social services and Justice ministers, to the Quebec Ombudsman  as well  and also to Canada’s major news editors as well  the last 7 months even.   Now let it be clear I have written many many times my complaints to the Ombudsmen, ministers and I have yet to get one decent review on these matters this year.. and I still do want to know what rightfully and specially was done about each one of all of these past rightful complaints. Let them do the adequate work there are all  being paid to do as well. RSVP Thank you.

    THE GREAT DEBATE. PRIVATE OR SOCIALIZED MEDICARE.

    Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services, and   Profit-hungry hospitals are also overcharging consumers an estimated $10 billion a year in the US. Some deliberately work to keep bills indecipherable.  That’s what Nora Johnson found when her 56-year-old husband, Bill, underwent hip-replacement surgery in 1999. The cost of the operation was $25,000.   Knowing that her family would have to pay a percentage of the costs, she requested an itemized bill. $129 for a box of tissues. “Like the charge for newborn blood tests and a crib mobile. That stopped me in my tracks,” recalls Johnson. “As far as I know, my husband never had a baby.”  But making sure that you are charged correctly can be a daunting task. “That’s what Richard Clarke found out firsthand shortly after his father died in 2000. Despite the fact that he is a former hospital chief financial officer, Clarke admits, sorting through the bills took him a year. In the end he found $2,000 in errors. And, according to a 1998 study of hospital billing procedures, they go to extraordinary lengths to discourage patients from delving too deeply into their bills.”
     
    Yes, you can buy medical insurance to protect yourselves financially against medical emergencies. But will the services, coverage be there when you need it? Nevertheless, experts still do next say reviewing your bill for overcharges is vital. “For one thing, if you are required to pay some of your hospital expenses, either as a deductible or a co-payment, overcharges will come out of your pocket.   What’s more, most insurance plans have a cap, meaning, “Money siphoned off by errors or fraud can chip away at your lifetime total,” says Tom Brennan, Blue Cross/Blue Shield’s director of special investigations. Your credit rating may be at risk too. “Hospitals have become very aggressive about collecting money,” says Nora Johnson.”
    Now  we all have heard the phrase “here to serve”.. but dream on if you are dumb enough to believe that.. most people still are self serving to start of with.. The world is full of self serving persons and  Liars, who even  often lie to themselves too, there are too many persons  with a hidden agenda, sometimes not too hidden ones, such as self promotion, financial gains are too often amongst the top of their goals still. Most of us tend not to believe everything we hear, but most of us are still gullible and do too often get taken in Don’t Believe Everything You Read, or see, even if it is writing,  especially if it is a preacher or a politician it now seems.. not even too many of the so called professionals.. Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants, I have never seem so many lying, mental people in one place like I have amongst the medical workers I have dealt with this year in  in Hospitals, convalescent, old age homes who really do delude themselves too often about their self importance and the positive role they are functioning in.  When a medical professional cannot see what they are doing now is simply  so wrong they themselves do now need real professional help too.  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/08/06/but-you-know-that-already/ https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/11/canada-pretentious-medicare/

    SO WHO, WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF OUR INADEQUATE MEDICARE (CANADA) and what are the solutions.. from the sole called experts.. more money? REALLY you got to be kidding now…  Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, THEY ALL DO need to be supervised, even Professionals, cops, civil and public servants too now,  and corruption still exists in construction, universities, Hospitals, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well  WHEN IT COMES TO MY PERSONAL HEALTH OR ANYONE’S I RIGHTFULLY DO NOT ACCEPT PRETENTIOUS, INADEQUATE MEDICAL SERVICES. Or any neglect, abuses! 

     

    ABUSES EXISTS. If they were hiring appropriately trained staff and providing ongoing staff training and support, including criminal PROSECUTIONS AS WELL  they are not going to have this many  reported incidents  IN HOSPITALS, OLD AGE HOMES. The adequate Treatment for Canada’s failing health system firstly is criminal prosecution and jail for the bad doctors, bad nurses for failing to help the sick people adequately and having enforced, Real management, supervision of doctors, nurses, medical and hospital workers.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/14/professionals-what-a-joke/     The adequate Treatment for Canada’s failing health system, Jail

    Many abuses, errors, deaths, bad   incidents are still undeniably unreported. Ask me about it I saw too many.  When a Montreal Verdun Hospital doctors, nurse often says to the  patients as I have witnessed   I cannot do anything  to help you, go to your own doctor when you go home and tell him about it, that is not providing adequate medical aid.   Just the tip of the iceberg.. and bad Hospitals, bad doctors, bad administrators like this one abound in Canada in reality.. unacceptable. Fire them all.. Public exposure and rightful prosecution of the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest, the bad persons included. Unacceptable still http://thenonconformer2.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/a-pretentious-medical-care-system-in-quebec/

    HALIFAX – NS Health Minister Maureen MacDonald,  ” frankly, any incident of abuse is one too many, and we need to consistently continue to monitor and do what’s necessary to protect people who are vulnerable.”  “Now there were 20 incidents of abuse — including 15 involving staff — at nursing homes from Oct. 1, 2008 until this June. In all, Health Department investigators probed 61 complaints of abuse. The cases include physical, emotional, sexual and financial abuse. There were also seven nursing home cases and one residential care facility case that were classified as “neglect,” where the institution involved failed to provide proper care.There were  30 cases of abuse between September 2007 and September 2008 — the first year of the province’s Protection of Persons in Care Act, which requires all abuse in nursing homes to be reported. ,”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100808/national/ns_elderly_abuse

    Ontario pathology overhaul ordered.  Recommendations flow from report into surgical errors in Windsor.  The review was particularly critical of the work of one pathologist in particular, Dr. Olive Williams Dr. Barbara Heartwell, removed the breast of a woman who did not have cancer. Heartwell blamed the mistaken mastectomy on an error in Williams’s pathology report. In this case, the pathologist was incompetent and produced false or misleading reports. Dr. Heartwell was unfortunately a victim of a media frenzy, but I am glad she can continue her good work for the community – 
      
    “The medical profession is vey good at protecting its own and always has been…  Doctors seem to be able to make many mistakes but b/c they are doctors it’s ok. We just have to accept that they know what they are doing. If we find out they were wrong, they just blame it on the tests. Never their fault. Do you know what they call a med student that graduates at the bottom of their class? Doctor. People in the lowest positions are expected to perform usually without mistakes e.g. take Wal-Mart staff who make mistakes are routinely fired for these mistakes and some are minor while surgeons who are supposed to be the near peak of our professionals make tragic errors and very little punishment follows them. Professionals are paid extremely well while lowly labor staff are paid a fraction but expected to perform at higher levels. This is from my experience working in over 20 types of industry. Before anybody makes any comments I have earned my degree in engineering and physics, some of the most incompetent people I  have every worked with are so called educated people…. just because your a doctor does not make you a good one ……. it’s really sad but once one gets sick and needs treatment they do not get it  sad to say but this happens a lot more than people think or is being reported….. ”  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/windsor/story/2010/08/04/wdr-mistaken-mastectomy-report-released-100804.html  

    Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, Hospitals, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well http://thenonconformer2.wordpress.com/2010/08/08/so-who-what-are-the-causes-of-our-inadequate-medicare-in-canada/

    SO FIRE NOW, ASAP ALL OF THE PRETENTIOUS, INADEQUATE SUPERVISORS, BAD WORKERS.

    Canada  health-care system is a wholly public one,  but in reality the majority of Hospital medical system is administered mostly privately by doctors, medical professionals   and most medical services are delivered privately  where most    doctors for example, are essentially independent contractors and many of the Nurses are agency nurses now too. .  Also  “New governance models should be considered to improve both system effectiveness and accountability.” Most  Doctors tend to make very  poor managers themselves so I do not respect most of their related recommendations or that of their societies. One of the favourite approaches   of too many of our politicians in our country is to lie, become indifferent, pretentious  to the people who elected them, but also to say one thing to the news media in English and another in French. Also if we can’t count on doctors to give us the straight goods even  when it comes to health care, on whom can we count?   No one but ourselves.

     There are also serious gaps in the continuum,  particularly in the lack of prescription drug coverage for those without private insurance or who are ineligible for public programs, inadequate mental health services and a lack of continuing care which includes long-term care faculties and home care. Yes despite the millions of dollars that are spent on health-care every year, the system is under-performing in key areas such as timely access, and that it is “not delivering value for the money spent.”
     
    All Canadians are not getting value for their tax money placed in the health-care system and the health-care system  needs to be “massively transformed,” as  the underlying principles of the Canada Health Act ” which include universality and accessibility ” are not being met since they are not enforced by the federal or provincial governments. “Our system of publicly funded health care is founded on the promise that all Canadians will receive needed medical care when and where they need it. Far too often the promise falls short,”   Especially  with its shortcomings, the present system will not be able to meet future needs.
     
    We always do need a sustainable health-care system  now and  the most vulnerable populations are least able to access and navigate the systems  especially where there is uneven coverage of health services outside of the hospital setting. for overall, accessibility of services is still a major problem because many Canadians don’t have a competent , adequate family doctor and are waiting far too long for procedures once they next have entered the system.

    Yes  “absolutely” the wait time targets should reach beyond a handful of priority surgical procedures such as cancer, heart attacks…The Canada Health Act is meant to ensure that patients have access to medically necessary physician and hospital services but  the provinces do falsely by their poor management of Medicare, doctors, nurses too  fail to live up to their responsibilities here.

     Putting money into pails full of holes, paying pretentious and too often useless medical workers is a waste of time. Privatization of the system will not help since the problem always has been the clearly, inadequate, lack of supervision of the medical workers. Masturbating self regulating of the medical professional is ludicrous for almost no  medical personal still do  feel real negative consequences for their poor inputs, and where all tend to  still get paid for their bad works too.
     

     

    A Quebec hospital is investigating the death of a diabetic man who died while sitting in a wheelchair in the waiting room at a Montreal emergency department.  André Desjardins, 64, went to the Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital on Sept. 30 by ambulance after complaining of severe pain. He already suffered from high blood pressure and was a heavy smoker, in addition to having diabetes. A doctor at the hospital saw him but Desjardins was sent back to the waiting area. As his pain worsened, family members pleaded with staff to let him lie down on a stretcher, but none was provided. Instead, hospital staff put him in a wheelchair, where he spent an estimated seven hours waiting for futher care before he died, said his relatives. Making anyone in a medical crisis wait for care in an ER makes no sense at all, and reflects Quebec’s chronic problem with emergency care, said patients’ rights advocate Paul Brunet. “We had the ultimate failure of the system with the death of this guy. We shouldn’t have to wait in an emergency ward. We should stop accepting that,” said Brunet, who heads Quebec’s Conseil de protection des malades. “Evidently that patient was gravely ill, and certainly should have been taken care of more seriously than he was.” The hospital has apologized to Desjardins’ family but won’t comment further until its internal investigation is complete. Quebec Health Minister Yves Bolduc said Tuesday that Desjardins’ death is unacceptable and regrettable, but denied that it had anything to do with the hospital operating at over-capacity. It’s not the first time a patient has died waiting in the Maisonneuve-Rosemont ER. Last February, an elderly woman suffering from Alzheimer’s disease died after waiting two hours on a stretcher in the Maisonneuve-Rosemont ER. Later reports found the hospital’s emergency ward was operating at 200 per cent capacity that day. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/101019/canada/canada_montreal_quebec_man_dies_in_hospital_emergency_room

    Arrest the Health Minister, Hospital director, the Quebec Ombudsman,  and the main Doctor at the Hopsital, emergency room for criminal neglect of a sick person,, after all they know about the problems for a long time  and they did nothing good about it.

    Bad MDs, nurses blame solely the Quebec government for ER crisis

    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.

    “I am chronic believer of the “sit, wait, watch, see philosophy”.. and I like to sit and look as to what is really happening in police stations, hospitals, doctor’s offices, emergency clinics, government offices, churches too.. it is really an eye opener and a learning experience..”   

    “The Quebec government false approach that its user fee would be making it cheaper to visit a doctor or a walk-in clinic than to show up in a hospital emergency ward for instance — does not hold water, seriously sick people can find no help in a doctor’s offices except for mostly a pretentious services. Only ER tend still have the necessary equipment to do the needed tests to help help the patients.  Quebec’s plan to introduce a user 25 fee for medical appointments signals the official opening of a new round of Medicare debate about the need firstly for better financial, fiscal management of the Medicare resources, personnel which too often still are being abused, mismanaged.

    and the Montreal West Island Lakeshore General Hospital is still one of the worst medical care services in reality, and too many people die there too often due to Hospital acquired sickness still too.
     
    Putting more money into pails full of big holes is a waste of time… while the Federal and Quebec Health ministers like photo ups but are still being mostly paid for doing nothing to improve the too often STILL bad health care, where too many seriously sick people have to go to the mostly still bad ER.. and they want us all to pay more for it all too? 
     

    One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.  One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..
     
    When a Verdun Hospital doctors, nurse often says to the  patients as I have witnessed   I cannot do anything  to help you , go to your own doctor when you go home and tell him about it, that is not providing adequate medical aid.

    Many matured senior patients with serious medical problems they tend to return solely to the Emergency rooms because they they have learned that family doctor does not have the necessary medical equipment, tools, tests  to diagnose their SERIOUS MEDICAL PROBLEMS, only the Hospitals tend to have them generally and so they now are regular users of the emergency room.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/09/canadian-health-care/

     
    Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest, the crooks included. Here is the important main root, real problem the news media reports do  not face firstly. In reality the  Doctors, Pharmacist, Nurses are Gods. You cannot touch them or deal with them. The medical society itself forbids the criticism of any doctor, by any doctor or anyone else for that matter. for only lengthy self regulation can review any criticism of a bad doctors performances. The same fact generally applies to the unionized  nurse and hospital workers and so no work improvement, cost effectiveness can be attained,   thus having any possible effective cost or quality supervisors is also impossible. Our medical services always tend to be unsupervised, uncontrolled  with about 50 percent of the existing workers being pretentious, incompetent, inadequate, and so of course putting more money into a pail full of holes like this is an ever increasing  waste of money.
     
    Proper medical care and not pretentious Medicare is still each of our Canadian right. And anyone who denies, fails to deliver it  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 too often undeniable  on the job poor performances and false demands for more money.   The number of doctors practicing   in Quebec is about  16000, and about 58,000 nurses as the statistics shows now we are all naively now  to believe that all of these professionals are saints, perfect and not one medical worker  has killed a patient by accident, neglect, failed to do their job adequately in meeting the sick persons needs? How absurd. When in the last 6 months I myself have often seen Medical doctors disagree many times on the reasons a person was sick, so never mind them even helping him adequately, and I saw  in Quebec the nurses give the wrong medication to patients, due to mistaken identify or error. Canada’s medical regulating bodies, administrators, supervisors, ombudsmen too often wrongfully cover up, hide the mistakes of their own.. Unacceptable.
     
     
    IT WAS INTERESTING THAT   McGill UNIVERSITY OFFERED THE MEDICAL STAFF OF THE WEST ISLAND GENERAL HOSPITAL A VIDEO CONFERENCE DURING LUNCH HOUR ON “HOW TO DEAL WITH AGITATED PATIENTS”. I WONDER WHY THAT HAS BECOME SO BIG OF A PROBLEM IN THAT HOSPITAL? IS IT CAUSE OF THE MEDICAL STAFF’S TOO OFTEN POOR  MEDICAL SERVICES THERE STILL? AND THE MANY RECENT DEATHS ON THE 4 TH FLOOR? WHAT ABOUT RATHER A VIDEO ON HOW TO REALLY BETTER HELP THE PATIENTS?
     
     
     
    Now I have also dealt with an incompetent, pretentious  doctor at the Montreal Lachine hospital , too many at the Royal Victoria hospital, even at the Montreal General Hospital, and by the too many  bad doctors at the Montreal West Island Lakeshore General hospital and now even more recently by clearly incompetent doctors at the Montreal Verdun Hospital emergency department but  also next by a new bad Pharmacist.

     

    Now where is the immediate rightful real action on this whole related issues from all our elected officials, justice ministers, hospital administrators, health ministers?

    Star lawyer calls for criminal probe into Winnipeg emergency room death City police will review evidence surrounding the death of double amputee Brian Sinclair after a national legal expert lambasted the force for its “shocking” failure to investigate why Sinclair was found dead after 34 hours in a hospital emergency room. Renowned criminal and human rights lawyer Clayton Ruby criticized the Winnipeg Police Service on Wednesday, saying he believes charges of criminal negligence causing death and failure to provide the necessaries of life could be laid against Health Sciences Centre and medical staff in charge of its ER.

    NOW I HAVE HEARD ALL KIND OF REASONS WHY THE BAD EMPLOYEES WERE, ARE SUPPOSEDLY JUSTIFIED IN NOT DOING THEIR WORK PROPERLY BUT SOME HOW THE EXCUSES ALL APPEAR VOID WHEN COMPARED WITH THE OUTPUT OF THE GOOD WORKERS.
     
    MY PERSONAL MONTHS OF DIRECT OBSERVATION ABOUT THE MEDICAL WORKERS WHO COMPLAIN THAT TOO MANY ERRORS ARE CAUSED BY THE WORK OVERLOAD ACTUALLY TEND TO MEAN, COMPLAIN ABOUT HAVING  TO DO ANY WORK AT ALL, FOR THEY TOO OFTEN DO THINK THEY MERELY SHOULD BE PAID EVEN MORE FOR COMING TO WORK. THESE SAME RATHER TOO OFTEN INCOMPETENT, UNQUALIFIED, PRETENTIONS WORKERS , THESE BAD PERSONS STILL  SEEM TO HAVE THE ENERGY TO SOCIALIZE WITH THEIR COLLEAGUES, TAKE LONG COFFEE AND LONG BREAKS, TO DO THEIR OWN BUSINESS ON THE SIDE.
      
    These people, the same persons and the bad persons, managers  who now hired them too firstly now still are are all career incompatible and they should be clearly encouraged to find work elsewhere, to find work they like to do, such as being on social aid?
      
    The lack of  DECENT OUTPUT is too often a false excuse for the whole system’s malaise the  mostly bad, pretentious supervisors.
      
    Recently a supervisor went for a month long holiday and the medical workers all stopped working hard, started to play around, started to waste their time as I saw firsthand. That was the bad effect of having no good supervisor in place to to replace  him too.
     
    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. Clearly now as well when the MDs, Nurses, others falsely do blame the Quebec government solely  for ER crisis too, their own poor performances, they themselves have failed to do an adequate service to the public now in general as well.. They clearly already  had many other valid options available to exercise for them to make their complaints know without allowing anymore false abuse, neglect of any sick patients now too.
     
    ER basically is the only place available for seniors who tend to have many repeat ER visit for their often more serious sicknesses  cause their original problems had not been adequately dealt with now too by their family doctors or the ER. Hospitals like to advertise and to pretend too often they are a fully equipped, fully staffed medical facilities when they are not so in fact too often now as well.. This too is unacceptable.
     
    Any ombudsman in response who now merely offers me a cup of cold tea when she should be immediately instead offering truckloads of acceptable medical services is a very unacceptable approach now as well

    “Clearly here this same hospital, related medical, support personnel have wrongfully, undeniably now failed in doing all they can, in now providing adequate medical care to all patients and in preventing the spread of disease to all patients, visitors thus causing to unnecessary pain towards others, deaths and which is rather a prosecutable, criminal acts of man slaughter as well..” http://www.montrealgazette.com/health/hazard+elderly/2704839/story.html

    Reader’s comments..
     
    “I agree with 3:58- I too even as of this weekend I again have seen the LGH ER staff involved in of all kinds “schmoozing”: flirting, chatting, and conducting a social life at the expense of the patients. You can spot them easily cause they are firstly bunched together in groups at the desks, or in hidden corners, passage ways, and talking about restaurants, food, non work related items..”
     
    “Yes, the government is at fault. But doctors, nurses, stop the finger pointing. I’ve seen first-hand how you stand there and schmooze at the nursing station while patients wait. And I’ve seen ghastly treatment and callousness on the part of nurses and doctors alike. Yes, you’re all stressed. But that doesn’t excuse poor performance and mistreatment or negligence of patience. Too stressful for you? Move to the U.S. and enjoy the higher malpractice premiums. “
    “What do I think?!?
    ANYONE!?!
     
    who’s been in an ER in the last 10 years? YOU know what I say is TRUE!!
    YOU see staff working at the SLOWEST possible pace!!
    And since people have started noticing… THEY HAVE installed shutters so we cant see them doing nothing!!
    GREED of american salaries, and union mentality have led to US human beings being used as pawns in salary negotiations!!!(I’m pro union, except when the pawns are people!!”
     
    “What the hell do Quebec politicians care about how bad our health care system is…have you ever seen one in any of the ERs…have you ever sat beside one in a doctor`s waiting room. Damn right you haven`t ,they go to the head of the line along with the rest of their family members.
     This problem with ER’s is only the tip of the iceberg of problems found in Quebec–AND ONLY QUEBEC (e.g. collapsing buildings and bridges killing people, third world road surfaces, no ambulance paramedics, puppy mills, animal abuse, no animal inspectors, language inspectors, racist laws, highest debt, highest unemployment, highest suicide rate, lowest number of doctors, closing hospitals, corrupt police force, etc, etc, etc). “

    DOCTORS!! NURSES!! STAFF!! fight for your rights in some OTHER WAY!!!!”

    “Hey I just got a great idea…. Instead of judges sending convicted murderers to death row for execution why not send them to ERs with fake illnesses that way they will die waiting for a doctor.”

    “All civil and public servants, leaders, professionals included now must be allowed to face scrutiny from the governments, press and the citizens, and their costs effectiveness must be fully dealt with now as well.” For the good of us all still too.

    “What the hell do quebec politicians care about how bad our health care system when they do not even reply to any of my letters of concerns on the matter firstly. In Quebec the rather self regulating doctors, nurses, hospital workers, police etc., are not supervised adequately or regularly . Federal Liberals are receiving some very controversial and explosive advice to try to overhaul of one of Canada’s most cherished national programs: Medicare. Claims of mismanagement of health care doctors, medical services is being raised since say soaring health-care costs are rapidly escalating and as the country’s aging population requires ever more medical services. Clearly still now putting more money into a pail full of holes is still bad-management It is unbelievable that after I had written about it for many years later 15 years even I can go to most local Hospitals or Convalescent homes and there too easily see the typical and mostly poorly supervised doctors, nurse, medical care workers

    Lazy, incompetent professionals blaming others for their own inadequacies is par for the course. Clearly this same hospital, related medical, support personnel have wrongfully, undeniably now failed in doing all they can, in now providing adequate medical care to all patients and in preventing the spread of sicknesses, disease to all patients, visitors thus causing to unnecessary pain towards others, deaths and which is rather a prosecutable, criminal acts of man slaughter as well”. 

    “I agree with 3:58- I too have seen staff of all kinds “schmoozing”: flirting, chatting, and conducting a social life at the expense of the patients. Within a patients ear reach, it is never appropriate to discuss your kids, your search for a house, blah, blah, blah. People feeling unwell don’t want to hear it, no matter how “cute” and animated you are. Have some decorum. BTW, where is the management when all this chit-chat is going on. Put a stop to it! It’s unprofessional. PERIOD! PATRICIA

    “It is still absolutely disgusting how they do neglect, abuse the elderly still too often in old age homes, hospitals too and when you complain they call the police against the whistle blower, try falsely to shut him up, even by trying to declare him as mental.. such is the acts of these too often unrepentant wicked professionals there now too now too often in reality. “”

    “And people used to laugh at me when I said that women’s pain was not getting an adequate response from doctors or other medical staff… When a doctor sees a woman patient who claims she is in pain, often his-her eyes glaze over (“another one…”) and a bubble springs in their head (“another hysterical female”) (“just needs some good s-x…”), etc. etc. etc. Been at the pain end and ignored.

    “these idiot nurses and idiot doctors seem to forget that one day they themselves will be old and these same health care ER`s will still be around to treat them or pretend to treat them….my only regret is that I won`t be around to say ”’ see, I told you so ” now how do you like it ? “
    “hey, there have never been social workers outside of banker’s hours at the Lakeshore Hospital. I don’t know what you and the person in the article are talking about.”
     
    “The problem should never happen again. There will no longer be social workers in the Lakeshore Hospital outside of banker’s hours.
    Since there have been so many negative news articles about the Lakeshore Hospital recently in the Montreal Gazette, the province will close down the hospital and will exile all of its staff to the U.S. “

    “9:47 AM on March 28, 2010 This red-headed worker, her administrative supervisor, and the senior hospital executives who have been given any previous complaints about the worker will be subject to strong and aggressive litigation. Research and perfection of this wide spanning legal action is under way. The gazette will be keep appraised only to the extent allowable under Quebec Law. If you know of persons injured or dead as a result of malpractice actions on the part of this specific social worker, or the Lakeshore hospital please send your stories and contact information to the author of this story. Our legal action is well funded and we are interested in additional case evidence.” http://www.montrealgazette.com/health/hazard+elderly/2704839/story.html

    Yes, you all should read the Reader’s comments..

    -Get Real. Fire the lazy nurses, decertify their union, and fill the job with decent nurses but now they pamper the nurses, they let them have it the way they want, so in that case fire all of their bad supervisors firstly. From over a 12 nurses I do  encounter daily in the ER I do see 2 that are decent workers and the rest need to get another job outside of nursing.. like dish washing..

    -I have met many nurses, for I had married a RN, Nurse here in Quebec for over 12 years and  she too now certainly was not a saint, she was lazy, had unrealistic expectations, she always griped, she always wanted more money, and she was also incapable of house keeping, cooking, sewing as well, and eventually enough was enough, and I had to let her go, as simple as that too. So griping nurses do not get my support, sympathy..

    -Every time I go see my mom at the hospital, the nurses station is full of nurses sitting and talking. Just try asking them for anything.  IMO, they are no different then blue collar workers in attitude and intelligence.
     
    – I am so sick of hearing nurses complain. I have never seen them do anything in a hospital other then mouth off to the public, sit on their rear, and go for smoke breaks.

     – AND THE CITIZENS FIRSTLY WANT BETTER NURSES WHO DO REAL WORK

    NOVA.SCOTIA (CBC) – Nova Scotians who write down their wishes for medical and personal care should they become incapacitated will have legal backing as of April 1.  The “personal directive” will replace the medical consent act and will allow individuals to create a living will with instructions that go beyond things such as “take no extraordinary measures to keep me alive if I have an irreparable brain injury.” The new legislation will also covers day-to-day requests, such as religious practices, personal grooming habits and health activities. “It can help patients, it can help their loved ones and health care professionals by removing doubt, conflict and uncertainty during difficult and emotional times,” said Van Horne.  The forms for personal directives will be available on the government website or at Service Nova Scotia offices across the province at the start of April. Officials say people won’t have to have a lawyer involved in drafting the form to ensure their wishes are carried out.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100329/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_personal_directives

    Now what about including a directive provision  for criminal prosecution all health care workers, health ministers who had failed to provide them their needed medical care too..
