New medical studies confirm what I for years have written here..

life (3)

 

Nearly 40 per cent of hospital infection control experts believe their hospital is not clean enough to prevent spread of the toxic gut infection C. difficile and other potentially lethal organisms, a national survey has found.

About one-quarter million Canadians will be sickened this year with an infection they pick up in hospital, and death rates from highly drug-resistant microbes are rising.

Yet the new survey found that just 62 per cent of lead infection control staff believe their hospital is sufficiently clean.

“We’re just not achieving the results we need,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Dick Zoutman, an infectious disease specialist and professor in the school of medicine at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont.

What you should know about C. diff, the shit disease

 deatth
Canada’s Police   sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and Transport Canada.   in a police initiative designed to save lives and reduce injuries on Canada’s roadways are  focusing on   “Four Big Killers” – impaired driving, failure to wear seatbelts, distracted driving and aggressive  driving but they still neglect the Biggest Killer and why?   Hospital  deaths due to infections, uncleanliness, errors.. Traffic tickets generate more money revenue for them as well
 .
MY OWN MOTHER RECENTLY WENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR ONE PROBLEM  AND CAME HOME WITH THE SHIT DISEASE FROM THE MONTREAL ST LUC HOSPITAL..
.

Infection Highlights

  • More than 200,000 patients get infections every year while receiving healthcare in Canada; more than 8,000 of these patients die as a result.
  • Mortality rates attributable to Clostridium difficile infection have more than tripled in Canada since 1997.
  • The healthcare-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection rate increased more than 1,000% from 1995 to 2009.
  • About 80% of common infections are spread by healthcare workers, patients and visitors.
  • Proper hand hygiene can significantly reduce the spread of infection.
  • Best practices in preventing infection can reduce the risk of some infections to close to zero.
.
Too many Canadian professionals, workers next  become too lax when they do think they have attained some kind of job security and fail to do their duties fully too, towards all others.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/hospital-deaths-account-for-half-of-deaths-annually/
.  
IMAGINE THIS TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL DYING FROM THIS DECADES OLD  C. diff, the shit disease  where  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. 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.
.
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   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/
.
Seniors and Children are more seriously affected, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure 
.
AND FOR DECADES EVEN IN QUEBEC, CANADA, AND NO ONE IS JAILED FOR IT.. NOT EVEN THE HEALTH MINISTERS.
.
Like most C. diff patients symptoms began with severe diarrhea as the  intestines were shutting down and the colon becomes swollen that it pushed pressure up to the lungs, making it difficult to breathe.  In serious cases a  fecal transplant can often be used successfully here..   
.
“ A USA TODAY investigation shows that is far more prevalent than federal reports suggest. The bacteria is linked in hospital records to more than 30,000 deaths a year in the United States— about twice federal estimates and rivaling the 32,000 killed in traffic accidents.  It strikes about a half-million Americans a year. Yet despite a decade of rising C. diff rates, health care providers and the government agencies that oversee them have been slow to adopt proven strategies to reduce the infections, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths and illnesses that could have been prevented, the investigation shows. Far more could be done to stop the deadly bacteria C. diff .  “I wish doctors were more forthcoming. … You don’t learn about it until after it’s too late.” The big challenge in curbing C. diff is getting everyone  to work together — from health care administrators and the government regulators  to doctors and nurses and the housekeeping staffs . “
.
“Hospital billing data collected by the US federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality shows that more than 9% of C. diff-related hospitalizations end in death — nearly five times the rate for other hospital stays.   Hundreds of Thousands more of unnumbered patients are treated in nursing homes, clinics and doctors’ offices.”  http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/health/story/2012-08-16/deadly-bacteria-hospital-infections/57079514/1
.
C. diff is “a big concern. And  C. diff infection can also now strike individuals at any age. The use of certain antibiotics can further  allow C. diff to thrive  Most medical staff and even citizens do not yet know,m realize how serious the diseases, prblme is cause they have not even been told about any of it.  Too many People are thus now dying needlessly. Deaths and illnesses are much higher than those disclosed also  since the bad doctors on their death certificates,  often don’t list the infection when patients die from complications, C. diff ,   kidney failure. It’s unacceptable and outrageous that C. diff hovers at all-time highs and the barrier is often cover ups and hospital costs plus  unacceptable medical practices. The news media and studies show that emergency rooms, patients’ rooms, washrooms, operating rooms too still often aren’t cleaned sufficiently.
.
 In 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services launched an “action plan” to reduce six high-priority Hopsital, seniors, old age homes infections, including C. diff. Infection rates for five of those have dropped significantly, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA but not  C. diff infections
.
In 2003 the  US Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates hospital disinfectants, learned that none of its approved products actually killed C. diff spores — though many claimed on their labels that they were effective against the bacteria so  the agency ordered manufacturers to remove the claims and began to identify new disinfectants that work.
.
Steps have already been taken in Canada in major hospitals to try to reduce C. Diff infections. Much more needs still to be done ti insure better quality medical care and patient safety. Nurses, doctors,  pharmacists , therapists that provide hands-on treatment, cleaning technicians  still all do  need to be out there and do much more to keep all rooms clean and  hospital infection rates down  The government should require all hospitals to mandatorily and not optional  report all C. diff cases.
.
They must also meet targets for reducing C. diff.. in hospitals, nursing homes and other care settings, 30% reduction per year, and there must  be a real penalty under Medicare and Medicaid for facilities that have allowed high C. diff rates. All nursing homes  hospitals must publically publicly report their rates of infections, qne include C. diff.
.
Standing in the way to reduce C. Diff infections still  are the false Hospital, old age homes concerns about the costs, staffing and the complexity of creating and implementing new procedures that require interdisciplinary teams to work together as even many homes,  Hospitals have cut housekeeping budgets in recent years, so many hospitals spend too little minutes cleaning all the rooms room. 
.
As hospitals and nursing homes struggle with tight budgets and limited staffing, patient advocates say its critical that the public become more engaged in minimizing infection risks. Not all Hospitals don’t want to tell others,  patients the hospital  might be contaminated,” or to tell  the patients too the steps patients can take to minimize infection risks. Old age homes, Healthcare facilities  often lie, do not disclose the truth cause the “care about their reputation.”
.
Most hospitals still are slow to admit that they have infection related problems because admitting those problems, opens them up to lawsuits, and is admitting guilt prior to going to trial. It’s all about insurance (money) and lawyers. Things which should have nothing to do with keeping us healthy.
.
There is also limited tracking of antibiotics usages. In 2010, about 42% of infection control specialists nationwide said their facility had no antibiotic stewardship program, based on a survey by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. Such programs typically track the use of antibiotics to ensure proper use, which can reduce opportunities for infection.
.
The challenge of reducing C. Diff is also now still needed in nursing homes, where antibiotics are prolific, staffing often is too  thin and it’s tougher to isolate patients.
.
“How to attack the problem.There’s no mystery to cutting C. diff rates. The spore-forming bacteria exists throughout the environment: water, soil, human and animal feces. It typically sickens people taking certain stomach medicines or antibiotics, which diminish healthy bacteria in the gut as they attack infections. When levels of healthy bacteria get low, C. diff can take over, producing toxins that cause intense diarrhea, often with grave complications.The germ thrives in settings where antibiotics are in wide use, and its proliferation has accelerated as a new, hyper-virulent strain has emerged over the past decade. C. diff spores spread through fecal contamination: They get on people’s hands, often from bathroom fixtures, and move to other surfaces by touch, from light switches to bed rails to tables and trays. The tough-to-kill spores resist many disinfectants and can survive for months. Once they’re on patients’ hands, it’s a short trip to their mouths — and their intestines.”
.
The challenge is twofold:
 .
Control the use of antibiotics that allow C. diff to flourish,
.
and prevent the bacteria’s spread from infected patients via dirty hands, dirty rooms or dirty equipment.”
.
The British experience “has shown that substantial C. diff reductions are possible,” including changes in room-cleaning procedures, antibiotic controls and testing protocols for patients showing C. diff symptoms. 
.
Many other health care infections have been stemmed by ensuring that certain medical procedures are done properly. That the Catheter-related infections were eliminated by getting doctors to change protocols for installing the devices. Infections linked to surgical incisions and ventilators can be reduced by getting doctors and nurses to alter practices and  more staff are  needed.
.
Many US hospitals also  have confronted those challenges head-on:
.
“•In Cincinnati, The Jewish Hospital-Mercy Health slashed its high C. diff rate by half in less than a year by adopting stricter antibiotic controls and new room-cleaning protocols. The program costs the 209-bed hospital about $10,000 a year.
•In Pittsburgh, the 792-bed UPMC Presbyterian cut C. diff 71% from 2000 to 2006 with new cleaning protocols, better identification and isolation of infected patients, and antibiotic controls.
•In Oak Lawn, Ill., the 695-bed Advocate Christ Medical Center reduced C. diff cases 55% by retraining housekeepers, coordinating care with infection prevention specialists, and adopting new disinfection standards for high-touch areas.”
But if you’re having one case of any health care infections a year, that’s still a problem and all unacceptable.

PROFESSIONALS.. WHAT A JOKE.. Lazy, indifferent, Incompetent is more likley

 
Attention Quebec, Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux  
 
Merely tell anyone that now you are writing continually to the health ministers, news media, internet about the medical services you are getting and your services will improve immediately, dramatically cause clearly 50 percent of the professionals are pretentious, self centered persons who STILL BASICALLY CARE ONLY ABOUT THE MONEY AND do not care about helping others with their pain, sicknesses even in convalescent homes, hospitals .. It should not be that way.
.
It is well known that Quebec’s health care system already has long been considered quite poorly staffed. Quebec has no GPs, or real triage nurses, it has disgusting waiting lists for diagnosis and/or treatment of life-threatening illnesses, falsely refuses some costly treatments, while the hospitals all over the province are in shambles.  Both the French and English speaking Montreal hospitals are undeniably  too often pretentious, inadequate and mismanaged still too, all as simple as that too.  Self regulation by doctors is just more unacceptable masturbation too..
 
Medicare in Canada, Quebec is too often a joke.. Pretentious..  One any day at the Hospital, 1/3 of the employees actual  time  is on lunch, supper, coffee, rest breaks. A hospital is not a place for employees to have a good time, to socialize on the job with their friends, and to  visit the other medical staff.
Doctors even often make false assumptions about the patient’s sickness that are not scientifically based, iit is just their own personal opinions and it explain why you can see 5 doctors and receive 5 different diagnosis too often now too.
Nurses themselves often to me they do admit they do not read in detail even the  patient’s charts, files nor do they follow all the medical prescription schedules as well, cause they are too busy to do so ..
Nursing Managers and Ombudsman tend to be a pretentious service. I had told one nursing manager to stop playing around and get back to work and she said she was going to file a grievance report against me, I rightfully repeated my request to her.. stop playing and get back to work. This was in Canada’s worst Hospital, the Verdun Hospital  in Montreal.
It is not my duty is a common excuse why things now also are not being done.. Very sick Patients diapers are changed when the staff feel like it too often.
 
I too have witnessed, detailed many times on the net too that here in Montreal’s English speaking Hospitals or in the French speaking ones that there is  too often  the neglect of sick people still, very poor medical services provided  by too many bad and lazy medical professionals, Doctors, Nurses,  and hospital administrators,  ombudsman as well, to the sick patients caused by the Professionals own neglect, failure   to provide adequate  medicine, medical care  and even if it is only to one   senior, one  elderly person,  it is still a criminal act too.
Do note how come the medical services can greatly differ from one Hospital to another now even..
 
 In Quebec it still is   too often a  fake superficial  pretentious poorly managed medical system, where the bad doctors and bad nurses, often ostrich like too,  tend to often run around hurriedly in circle too often just like a chicken with it’s head cut off there , and  the very sick senior patients tend to have to return to the hospital many times to hopefully eventually get their problems looked after and thus unacceptable, undeniably  wasting the hospital’s resources, tax payers money in the process. 
This undeniably has been so also now in my father case the last few years now too even at the  Montreal, Lakeshore and Verdun Hospitals.
The bad medical services it all had occurred even cause the medical personal did not take the proper time, effort to do a full decent job the first time. 
 And why is it still that  a certain kind of medication that has severe negative side effects being given to a sick patient wrongfully as I had discovered by checking the medication on the internet.. .
Note this now and no matter how supposedly great the health care professionals may be involved with your family , your own advocacy for your patient in the Quebec health care environment is still critical.
The supposed fact that “this doctor/nurse deals with these situations all the time, so they know how to handle it much better than I do…” is a myth, as we get often 3rd class doctors, nurses too.
“About a third of patients over age 70 experience hospital delirium, and the consequences can be serious, delaying a patient’s recovery and even leading to placement in a nursing home.”  
Recently I was visiting persons on the Verdun hospital cardiac floor, and it is not  uncommon for many cardiac patients to have also diabetes and yet the nurses on duty were neither cardiac or diabetic nurses, and when a heart or diabetes crisis arose  they did not know now to handle it. The patients had to wait till the doctors came around much later especially weekends and evenings.. No wonder this is one of the worst Hospitals in Canada still.
 
As You are aware Montreal is now divided into poorly managed regional health care regions encompassing a pretentious health care, as the regional Ombudsman  of the Verdun Hospital, Montreal, Quebec, told me today face to face that since adequate medical health care is not a mandatory service, but a public optional services, it explains why many sick persons at these perverse hospital too  have even this year been sent home not properly provided for medically still today. the perverse Verdun Hospital ombudsman she  needs to reared the doctors Hippocratic Oath is as well as the Canada Health l care act too. It is also not an option that she fired replaced  now, it is still mandatory as well.
 
In comparison to the bad Verdun Hospital the smaller better Montreal LaSalle Angrignon hospital  it rather tries harder, and sends patients elsewhere temporarily to help them as I have detailed now too.
It is still amazing that the Quebec health and social services minister,  especially even my local Lieberal elected member of the Quebec Legislature now too as well, as well  as the Justice Minister and the police too they all  has still to properly act on the matters of the criminal abuse of a senior even to reply adequately, properly to one of one of my many letters to them  and when will they? Do they want more bribes or what?

A very sick and likley dying grumpy old man lying in a hospital bed today in the Montreal Verdun Hospital was asking me what the loud noise in the Hospital hallway was all about, it was the Hospital  ward, working  floor social club having a good time flirting with each other, talking, joking around with each other in fact. No wonder hospital employees tend to be too often so ineffective still.

I asked today the new young nurse on duty looking after 10 patients if she had read each patient’s file and all of their sicknesses details, especially their pills required. She admitted she had not  for likley it would take all her shift just to read that and she would have no time to look after the patients. When you consider that old and sick persons take over a dozen pills each day, and some pills are taken at various times of the day you would admit it is a full time job just distributing the pills never mind carrying out any other nursing duties.
 
Some of the sickest patients come through the emergency room, triage floor so really how is it even appropriate to have any young, inexperienced nurse merely in training there at all now too? 
 
One thing we all should have known by now in Canada from the bad RCMP was that their  managers were as bad as the bad, lying no good police officers. Sadly this type of scenario is reaped in other police forces, civil and public services, hospitals now as well. Canada the last 50 years had also not even been innovative in the management fields. Statistics Canada has  found that Canada’s police force expenditures grew for the 12th consecutive year, to about $11-billion, or $344 per capita. About 1,800 new officers were added, the third-largest annual jump in the past 30 years. The provinces adding the most new officers were Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. In a recession too.. No one cares to manage the bad cops or make them work effectively, efficiently still.. so they sock it to the taxpayers again and again..
 
A new way of better management of Nurses and doctors is definitely needed here  as well.
 
In Montreal unlike in Toronto the Bus drivers tend not to be held accountable for any personal wrong doings.. this approach  WRONGFULLY TENDS ALSO  to be applied to all of Quebec’s civil and public servants, at the federal, provincial, municipal levels, even the  police, doctors and nurses included. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/06/09/the-workers-who-complain-that-many-errors-are-caused-by-the-work-overload/
 
 Jacques Delisle, 75, Ex-Quebec judge charged with murder Accused of killing wife  A former Quebec Court of Appeal judge has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of his wife  Delisle also faces a charge of illegal possession of a weapon.  Delisle was appointed to the Quebec Superior Court in 1983 and elevated to the Quebec Court of Appeal in 1992. He has been a supernumerary judge since May 2000, working on a part-time basis.  Even Judges should not be able to be above the law.” Nor should they be denied due process. “Insane. The people we trust to uphold and champion criminal law.  NEVER trust any one or any group TOTALLY.  At the bottom we are all human and all have faults”.  
 
CANADA IS A LAND OF IDOLS, THERE ARE IDOL WORSHIPPERS EVERYWHERE. Rock stars, Musicians, Professionals – pastors, police, lawyers, engineers, accountants, doctors, nurses, etc., who now are often worshipped, bowed down to.
 
 Capital Health uncovers $170K ‘discrepancy’ CBC –   Nova Scotia’s largest health authority has fired one of its business office employees and called for a police investigation after an internal audit revealed a financial “discrepancy” of nearly $170,000. This is not the first time there have been financial discrepancies in Nova Scotia’s health authorities. In April, a Nova Scotia man pleaded guilty to defrauding three health boards of nearly $400,000. Cary Lee Hollett, 42, will return to court July 21 to be sentenced in that case.
 
Canada not only has a two tiered Medicare system that favours one group of citizens over the other too often but it also has a two tired justice system that favours one group of citizens over the other too. These preferred, privileged groups are allowed to have their own self regulating bodies, standards enforcements,  all meaning the covering up bodies that tend to dispense token, pretentious justice now too, a fact we often have illustrated by the police, RCMP, doctors and Nurses now too. Sad isn’t it in  a supposedly progressive, liberal,  democratic nation.
 
As you and your love ones tend to grow older, you tend to have more involvement, with doctors, nurses, hospitals, emergency wards, old age homes and convalescent homes as well. I do have a personal great respect for competent, qualified doctors, and we cannot exist without them. Not all of them are competent clearly now too as many of us do know and explains why we often get a second medical opinion, diagnosis. The same fact is true with nurses.
 
It is undeniable that I have too often this ear seen new immigrants who cannot speak French being abused by French only speaking Quebec nurses. Specifically on the evening  of June 30, 2010  at 4:30 pm on the 7th floor of Montreal Manoir Verdun, a very elderly clearly distraught oriental person  in my presence was complaining to the on duty Nurse in English that his night pajama’s were missing. This senior evening nurse on duty next laughed at  him and then replied she could not speak English so she could not understand him and she thus did nothing about it too.
 
I have often encountered Nurses involved directly in patient care in hospitals, old age homes and  some are really good, rare too, but too many are really bad. I am often surprised how too many Nurses think they are big shots and do often demand more money, a bigger salary for the much too little good they really do too.  Now today I was lied to again by a Nurse.  I was complaining to a senior nurse in the convalescent home that   last night my very ill father did not get a sleeping pill. She said that last Wednesday she had even given him a sleeping pill and he still woke up in the middle of the night. That was a clear lie for last Wednesday my father was not in the nursing home but in the Hospital all last week. I am too often lied to by the both young and older Nurses who seem to have a great need to be shown as always being right, that they have done the  right thing. When you consider most of us even  undeniably do lie every ten minutes, it should be no surprise that too many nurses now are also major liars. Here is what I also  know for sure also that a doctor gives a pain prescription, the nurses  do too often interpret the prescription to suit their own desires, preferences and also the nurse reply to me often that they now cannot  increase the dosage specified but they can and do often now reduce the prescription dosage, even by not giving it to the patient cause it interferes with their personal desire to do the minimum amount of work possible too often too. Nursing standards have certainly been lowered the last few decades and not rather raised. One thing that often disturbs me is doing a time- work study on the acts of a typical nurse supervising a very sick patient, I simply measure how much time in an 8 hour shift do they actually spend time in looking after the good welfare of the patients,, and how much time is spent on personal breaks, coffee, etc., as well.. Sometimes I find it actually impossible to comprehend that the nurses are even being paid for the bad job they have been too often doing.
 
I AM AN UNBELIEVABLE BELIEVER IN “SEEING IS BELIEVING”, WHAT I WITNESS MYSELF, SEE IS THE REALITY, AND SO IS MY FATHER. WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET,  AND HOW THEY DO TREAT ME IS GENERALLY HOW THEY OFTEN STILL DO TREAT THE OTHERS TOO. What I too often have seen too many selfish, self centered Nurses do still is mostly to put their own desires, goals, such as coffee breaks, laziness, more money  ahead of the patients’ good welfare. Sad. My very senior father has an incurable, painful disease and he needs proper pain management in Hospitals, old age homes and rather often he still does not get it.
 
I am also even as of recently again  directly surprised as to how little medical knowledge they the Nurses tend to  have,  and how they tend not to be able to do most anything without the doctor  too. I have tried to have a serious discussion on real, important medical issue with too many of them, but have failed for  they tend to be mostly medically and computer  illiterate, and I am no  medical doctor myself, just an ordinary citizen. They do  lack even the most basic medical, health, dietary knowledge, as I often find out too,  and yet they are too willing to challenge doctors, and try to overturn the doctors written prescriptions, diagnosis as well. 
 
In Canada Nurses as well are clearly too often undeniably too mismanaged and  pretentious services and pretentious management is generally the way things are still done: for the last few decades too now. While clearly the patients in Hospitals, nursing homes, tend to be sick often now still even seven days a week, 24 hours a day, the nursing staff clearly as a whole are not adequate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Now in a typical medical facilities there tends to be at least 3 types of classes of Nurses and related services being  provided. The main day shift of Nurses tend to be the generally the one the best, offering  the best, first class services. But even here there tends to be a mixture of both very high caliber  workers  and also some very bad ones too.  The second shift of after noon and evening shift, services tend to be the one  next composed of second class nurses, those who do generally themselves do offer a less substantial services. And next the late night and weekend nurses tend to be composed mostly of third class nurses, the undeniable worst, poorer Nurses, workers services being offered. The Nursing supervisors themselves tend to place the unwanted, the least desirable nurse for the late night and weekend shifts.

 7 medical Questions to Protect Elderly Patients in Hospitals, old age homes 
 
1. Do the nurses and doctors routinely screen for   or identify high-risk repeat  sick patients? Or do they not bother, care to at all still?
2. How does the hospital deal with  the patient’s severe pain if it develops? Replied indifferently by saying it is not their pain, not their concern, not their job, but that of another department’s..
3. What does the hospital really do to keep patients from becoming disoriented? Let’s a junior incompetent nurse deal with it..
4. What policies are in place to make sure patients get adequate sleep? and/or Prescriptions filled.. pretentious ones…
5. If my family member needs a urinary catheter or other bedside interventions, how does the hospital decide when to remove them? When the patient complains or gets an infection?
6. Will the physicians and pharmacy staff review my family member’s medications often to identify medications that increase a negative side effect  risk? Not likely!
7. How effective is the patient’s complaint procedure? Ha ha ha..
  
Often you’ll hear nothing but gripes and complains about their bosses, their superiors, their parents and the government, nothing about blaming themselves or looking towards constructive solutions to their so called problems
   
 ”There’s no downside for the physicians” who order inappropriate psychotropics,  “Physicians aren’t being fined,” “Physicians don’t have any citations against them.” Nurses included now. Compromised Care: Psychotropic drugs given to nursing home patients without cause
Readmission into the hospital after surgery or another procedure is extremely common, costly and time consuming. Since it is one of our main priorities to keep our clients healthy and living at home rather than in the hospital,  article from The New York Times as it provides  great tips for hospital checkout and avoiding readmission. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/19/health/19patient.html?_r=1&ref=health

In 2009, The New England Journal of Medicine reported “one in five Medicare patients returns to the hospital within 30 days of being discharged.” Dr. Mark V. Williams, who worked on this study, suggests that part of the issue is due to the fact that doctors place much of their focus on the admission process, when the patient is most sick. When the patient leaves the hospital, they often have more medications and treatments to worry about than when they first entered. Some doctors suggest that this problem may also occur because it may benefit the hospital financially for patients to be readmitted.

California’s nursing disciplinary system is disgraceful. The state currently does not have a standardized method of monitoring suspensions or firings of registered nurses. The major nursing unions in California, opposed a bill for, primarily, a mandatory reporting clause that requires all employers to notify regulators about any  Nurses firings for serious violations, such as gross negligence or physically harming a patient. California’s Board of Registered Nursing recently discovered that 3,500 registered nurses have been disciplined in other states. http://historypro67.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/nurses-gone-wild/

 Canadian health care ranks second to last compared with seven industrialized nations, according to a recent report by a private U.S. foundation that monitors and researches international health-care systems. The Commonwealth Fund studied the health-care systems of Canada, the U.S., Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the U.K., and found that only the American system ranks lower than Canada’s. http://www.canada.com/sports/2010wintergames/Canada+health+care+system+better+only+than+America+Report/3200336/story.html

 We all in Canada do pay millions and millions, billions of dollars in taxes to our federal, provincial, municipals pretentious governments where too many civil and public servants, politicians in Canada undeniably  seem too readily to abuse them,   cheat, lie, steal , pass the buck and not help us the citizens rather. I do often write, send thousands of letters on justifiable, valid causes to them and I have often not seen one decent reply, acknowledgment, never mind any good actions on them as well from these still mostly pretences, lies and lies . They do the same thing mostly to all other  Canadians now as well and none of that is acceptable still too. But I have seen many of them not reelected because of me or fired.
.
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 http://thenonconformer2.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/a-pretentious-medical-care-system-in-quebec/

More Front line nurses are often wanted mostly for the pretentious CLSC where Quebec spends a lot of resources on pregnant women to build up Quebec’s dwindling population, but now what about the much needed better supervision  of the existing nurses in Quebec firstly?

  “Quebec must save lives,  MONTREAL – Linda Clifford after watching her husband’s health deteriorate to a critical condition because of incomprehensible delays in the medical system, she has a unique perspective on the issue of whether the funding of costly in vitro fertilizations is the best way to spend tax dollars  when people here are dying left, right and centre,”  people like Clifford are struggling to come to terms with a program that will only add to waiting lists in the province rather than alleviating them. I can no longer sit by and watch my husband die in front of my eyes while waiting for a government-allocated appointment for life-saving surgery,” Clifford said.  “We not only have to fight the cancer, we have to fight the Quebec health system.” Her husband, Wayne Benner, 63, was diagnosed with colon cancer in December 2005. He had surgery followed by chemotherapy. In December 2008, he was told the cancer was back in his liver and had spread to his lungs. He underwent more chemotherapy, but in late January this year he began having liver failure that caused fluid to build up inside him. Now he has to be drained at least once a week, a painful procedure that removes about eight litres of fluid and nine kilograms from Benner each time. The constant procedures have left him with four hernias and much pain as the pressure from the fluid builds up each time. It has also threatened his organs, especially his kidneys. After enduring months of this, Benner was told in April that a special shunt could relieve his pain. He was called for pre-op tests in May. Since then, he has just been waiting and waiting, filled, as he describes it, with fluid, fear and frustration. “I know we have some of the finest doctors and nurses anywhere, but we handcuff them with a government system that isn’t working,” Benner said yesterday. “When I come out of this, I want to be a health advocate because the system doesn’t work.”    http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/montreal/Quebec+must+save+lives+make+them/3279878/story.html

Now I have spent the last months watching the too often lying, pretentious, incompetent nurses, doctors  at the LGH or Verdun unable, or mostly unwilling  to fully help my father and others.
.
Speaking of medical half ass jobs, one doctor prescribes medications for my father, another one cancels it, such as the latest   my father’s blood thinner .. and so my father has severe breathing, heart problems till the latest doctor  discovers that his blood thinner was not reinstated..
.
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.
.
It is still a criminal act now for any doctor, nurse, hospital administrators, medical supervisor not to provide medical care to any seniors. How many have been prosecuted for this in the last year?

…ever notice that the medical personnel, even COPS of all persons who should know better do still smoke as well… not just pot, or are alcohol impaired
   
Note this undeniable fact if a police officer takes drugs, is an alcoholic, an adulterer, a liar, he likley also steals, makes false expense account statements, commits tax evasion and definitely makes a bad cop, SUPERVSIOR .
 
 
 One’s false denial can be an ACTIVE disregard for facts and circumstances or a more subtle expression of ones unreal personal preferences, their fanatsy.

 In the Montreal   Verdun hospital the patients ward does not have air conditioning but where the nurses work it is air conditioned by room window units. Visit the 3 floor for a great example. A sick elderly patient who is often cold, catches a cold easily too, was in one of these rooms for a blood transfusion and the nurse in charge was asked to temporary close the air conditioning for a few hours, but the selfish, self centered nurse next refused to do so because she would have to work under warm conditions. Whose welfare was more important? The Patient got sicker as a direct result too. How will the clearly pretentious, useless Ombudsman reply here? https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/05/06/thenonconformer%e2%80%99s-canadian-blog/

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.
 
The People who lie often, the  professionals now included, they   tend to have severe personal,  mental disorders next cause one tends to eventually believe next ones lies as being the truth, and they can no no longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth.
 
Narcissistic, selfish, self centered  Mental Disorders too evident now even in many of the so called medical Professionals leads  these persons to  dwell in self-absorption, fantasy, illusion, where she or he has exaggerated claims to talents, importance, or specialness,  manifesting evidence  of a need for constant admiration from others,  a lack of empathy for all others, persistent in this too,  have rigid personality traits and coping styles, clearly  inflexible, do show a  hypersensitivity to any criticism , defeat or  negative realities thus they rather  are pathological in  denial by the their falsity, contrived replacement of the truths which they still must  face eventually .  These SEVERE PERSONALITY disorders are generally personally ongoing too leading to more impaired social and/or occupational functioning and can make it difficult to pinpoint a clear dividing line between their  pathology and their so called normality. Most of these people with their personality disorders may not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these  personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too.
Denial, it is very very common when many an individual, even amongst so called professionals, even in pastors now included,  are openly confronted with their own wrong doings, that they resort to a false denial. When confronted with the truth the denier they  often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as   “you are crazy”.  “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.”  Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though.  Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.”    It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction  for persons now  facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be  further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on a false assumption  of one’s past great success and often precedes their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life. Illustrated fully by the story of the Emperor with new clothes.
Denial (also called abnegation) is a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud, in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence, a mechanism of the immature mind that conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality. The subject may now deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether (simple denial), admit the fact but deny its seriousness (minimization) or admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility (transference). The concept of denial is particularly related to the denial of one’s addiction to alcohol for example, or to one slandering others, abusing them stealing, lying.. their denial or their  minimization of their own wrong doings is the  essential part of what enables them next to to continue his or her behavior in the face of evidence that, to an outsider, that is   overwhelming.   “The American Heart Association cites denial as a principal reason that treatment of a heart attack is delayed. Because the symptoms are so varied, and often have other potential explanations, the opportunity exists for the patient to deny the emergency, often with fatal consequences. It is common for patients to delay mammograms or other tests because of a fear of cancer, even though this is clearly maladaptive.”

Types of Denial include now the Denial of fact: This form of denial is where someone avoids a fact by lying. This lying can take the form of an outright falsehood (commission), leaving out certain details in order to tailor a story (omission), This form of denial involves avoiding personal responsibility by blaming, minimizing or justifying.   Denial of responsibilityDenial of impact: avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others.  Denial of awareness: they do not admit any previous awareness of the negative reality.  Denial of cycle: Denial of cycle is where a person avoids looking at their decisions leading up to an event or does not consider their pattern of decision making and how harmful behavior is repeated. Denial of denial:  This latter form of denial typically overlaps with all of the other forms of denial, but involves more self-delusion. People in a false denial are really nuts, delusional..

There are tools and practices that we can implement to overcome the psychological trap of denial. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants  who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality.

People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.

Too many police officers even are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/canadas-police-forces/.

Halifax man says a standard practice of closing operating rooms in the summer is causing unnecessary distress for his wife, who is in constant pain.  Anne Leech needs surgery but her doctor cannot get an operating room booking until mid-August. Her husband, Al Leech, says breaks should be staggered in order to keep operating rooms open year-round.  “The worst part is to watch your wife continually suffer,” he said. “She can’t sleep at night, nothing is correct. Digestive system is affected, the bowel movements everything.” Immoral and absurd Health minister Maureen MacDonald said allowing OR staff to take time off in the summer is a well-established practice that is unlikely to change seriously needs to be ASAP criminal prosecuted since this violates Canada’s health act.. decency too.  People are sick 24 hours every day but pretentious hospitals, doctors want to work 9-5 and  week days only.. get real…

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, https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/14/the-great-debate-private-or-socialized-medicare/
