A long-term care home employee faces a criminal negligence charge

The head of a Quebec City long-term care home says the staff has been shaken by a criminal negligence charge laid against a former orderly. Last year, 87-year-old Geneviève Saillant died after falling in the bath. On Tuesday, police charged the orderly caring for her with criminal negligence causing death. The family is now suing the home for $1.6 million. The orderly allegedly neglected a basic safety measure during the bath. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2011/11/02/mtl-homeresponse.html

It is about time, for the Quebec government has been too soft on crimes domes by civil bad public servants.. Quebec coroners even  have not been examining all the dead bodies of seniors who had died in hospitals to determine how many died due to medical errors, hospitals diseases.

MONTREAL — A nurse at Maisonneuve-Rosemont who was on duty when a mother died just after giving birth three years ago pleaded guilty to negligence Monday at a Quebec Order of Nurses disciplinary board hearing. Anne-Marie Couture was one of several nurses who were charged with caring Christine Sasseville on Aug. 14, 2008, the day she gave birth to her son Demba and died from preeclampsia – or hypertension in pregnancy. However, the punishment agreed upon by both sides – a two-month suspension – was not upheld by the head of the disciplinary panel because it was deemed too severe considering the unfavourable working conditions Couture was facing that night. http://montreal.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20111017/mtl_nurse_111017/20111017/?hub=MontrealHome

The Quebec government itself now for decades is also too soft on crime and is wrongfully reluctant to punish any of the bad guys, even bad doctors and bad nurses too,  cause they would likely have to start also with themselves. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/03/positive-changes-need-to-start-at-the-top/

as to how bad the nurses are in Quebec presently and in the past.

MEDICAL CARE (1)

Hey you have often read it here as to how bad the nurses are in Quebec presently and in the past.

Gyslaine Desrosiers, president of the Quebec Order of Nurses, has now admitted that there there is a gap between the education required in Quebec the rest of Canada. The Quebec Nurses Training has remained at the same level since the 1970s, and Quebec now even lags 10 years behind other Canadian provinces. Quebec’s nurses thus have voted overwhelmingly to revamp education requirements calling for a mandatory university degree rather than the current college certificate. There is a gap between the education required in Quebec the rest of Canada and the United States. “We’re way behind everybody else in the world,” said another Quebec Nurse.

MEDICAL CARE (2)

This is more proof that the Government Quebec has been hiding the reality about poor nursing care in the province and it has so far not been caring enough to deal with this issue.

We need real medicare and not a pretend one..

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

Starved to death in a Hospital

 

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

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