All of the governments, Canada wide are to blame for perpetuating the health-care mess, our bad health care systems

 

 
All of the governments, Canada wide  are to  blame  for perpetuating the health-care mess, our bad health care systems are collapsing under the weight of a medical incompetency and medical mismanagements. Our medicare  care is still broken, broken badly and needs immediate attention . People will still have to wait for needed surgeries.

Even the Alberta Health Services – the super board created in 2008 to run the province’s health-care system – gobbles up billions of dollars, funnels it through layers and layers of managers and administrators, and gives whatever little is left over to caring for patients.

Visit the Montreal West lakeshore General  Hospital penthouse and see the life of luxury the Hospital’s administrators  workers work in.

 Alberta Health Services has finally DECADES TOO LATE TOO upped the number of surgeries performed in the province so the announcement made still only  represents a roughly two per cent bump. A drop in the bucket. “ I wonder if Jack Davis, former chair of the now defunct Calgary health region has to “wait’ for his $250,000 per year pension cheque, all for 6 years of dismal and sub-par performance on behalf of the region. Probably not. Stelmach just doesn’t get it,yes people are upset by the state of Alberta’s health care system, however what is upsetting them even more is the continued and seemingly ever continuing mishandling of the problem. ”The new procedures conducted throughout Alberta will include cancer, heart, knee and cataract surgeries. THE REST OF THE PROVINCES IN CANADA SHOULD ALSO FOLLOW THESE BASICS. Always make sure patients are funded first. Former premier Ralph Klein, after leaving office, admitted his biggest regret during his 14 years as premier was caving to the special interest groups and letting them derail his plans to reform health care. “ “Now convince me that you’re REALLY trying to provide services instead of merely responding to public pressure before another election. “ “ Its absolutely incredible the “new promises” that elected officials can make when in front of the firing squad with their jobs on the line and the sweat just pouring off their eyebrows…….ISN’T IT “ “ The problem here is that most of the 5,000 surgeries have already been announced. “The worst part of all of this is that they think Albertan’s are honestly this dense. It’s great that they think they can buy us off with pocket change ($16.7 Million) while making their friends rich with unproven Carbon Capture money ($2 Billion), friends are hard to come buy, peasants are a dime a dozen.” 

  

When Premier Ed Stelmach also now  says “there is no crisis in health care” — his legislature mantra last week — he’s speaking against the direct experience of thousands of Albertans. http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/phoney+news+becomes+good+news/3950143/story.html

  
  Their cold indiffference to the sufferings of others is totally unacceptable.He is just like the other bad premiers, health ministers who only care about their own good welfare and no one else’s! Put them now rightfully all into jail for the criminal abuse of the Citizens, the neglect of their good welfare, health.
 
 
  
Hospital patients are often at least partially immobilized after they undergo a medical procedure. Even a relatively small operation like a minor knee surgery can leave a person bed-ridden for a short time. When a person cannot move around regularly, there is a chance that blood clots will develop in the large veins inside their arms and legs. If these clots break loose and travel through the body, they can end up in the patient’s lungs and cause serious medical complications or death. This is called a pulmonary embolism. Many of the blood clots that people develop while staying in the hospital could easily be prevented.  

Hamilton’s St. Joe’s Hospital  reports 12th C. diff-related death. Another patient with C. difficile at St. Joseph’s hospital has died, bringing the number of deaths during the current outbreak to 12. The total number of C. diff cases rose to 83 late last week — 51 cases in which the infection was acquired at the hospital and 32 who came in with it. The outbreak was declared on Nov. 1 after individual cases of C. diff were noted in October. C. diff is an infection causing severe diarrhea, nausea and painful cramping and can result in serious complications and death. Hospitals normally have about five C. diff cases per month. In 2008, Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington had a large outbreak in which 91 infected patients died.  An outbreak would be declared if there are three hospital-acquired cases in one ward or one unit within seven days, At Hamilton Health Sciences, two of its hospitals, St. Peter’s and the General, have no C. diff cases, said spokesperson Agnes Bongers. Both the Juravinski Hospital and the McMaster University Medical Centre have fewer than five C. diff cases each.  http://www.thespec.com/news/local/article/308683–st-joe-s-reports-12th-c-diff-related-death

All C. difficile  outbreaks and related deaths at all hopsitals must be immediately reported…

C. difficile breaks out at B.C. hospital. A previous C. difficile outbreak at the hospital ended last summer, involving a total of 49 hospital acquired cases.In two of those cases, C. difficile was attributed to the death of the patient and in another two cases C. difficile was a contributing factor. All patients had underlying conditions. Housekeeping was a factor in the previous outbreak, but Marshall explained that the current situation has been attributed to a hand hygiene issue.Read more: http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/01/03/b-c-hospital-declares-c-difficile-outbreak/#ixzz1A31azxi7

B.C. hospital “There once was a time when a person went to a hospital to get better..now the odds of surviving a stay are worse than las vegas betting..meanwhile the health executives are getting bonus’s for saving money. Nanaimo Hospital is filthy. Take a walk down the halls and see the stains, spills, and dust bunnies. The private cleaners are stretched beyond their limits, given more things to do than there are hours in the day, all so VIHA can save money. Health care has gone back 100 years in quality since the Liberals came to power. It’s BC’s “dirty little secret”, but in the end is costing lives.”

Cancer, heart disease linked to most deaths? Dream on People are the leading causes of death

 

OTTAWA – Cancer and heart disease caused more than half of Canada’s 235,217 deaths in 2007. They are far and away the two leading causes of death among Canadians.Statistics Canada reports cancer accounted for 30 per cent of deaths and heart disease 22 per cent.The third-most common cause of death, stroke, accounted for six per cent.The agency says the proportion of deaths from cancer was up slightly from 2000, while the proportion from both heart disease and stroke declined.The other seven leading causes of death, in order, were chronic lower respiratory diseases, accidents, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, influenza and pneumonia, kidney disease and suicide. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101130/national/statscan_death

 In fact a person’s wrong doings are still the main continuing factor in most deaths rather… the cancer and the heart attacks are some of the end results.
 
More People have to take the responsibility for their own actions and consequences. for their smoking, drug usages, drunkenness, impaired driving, and eating habits. That includes all of the doctors, nurses who abuse, neglect their patitents now too. 
 
We all seem to know what statistics and polls are realy like  or the people using them, too  often   lies..
 
and did these statistics tell you how many people died of a heart attack cause they had used bad drugs, or is that listed under suicide?
 
Now be honest and tell us also how many people died because of a Hospital acquired infections and medical errors, and tell us how the political correct statistics Canada had deliberately left out these figures and why..
  
…and what speeding does not cause that many deaths but takes so much police resources that should be used elsewhere such as going after drunk, impaired drivers and people using cell phones while driving? Drunk driving  results in 1250 deaths a year in Canada, and nearly 75000 injuries.
  
My father’s death is listed as Heart failure too, but many people know the real reason of his death . Abused.. but he is not Jewish so Canada’s prime Minister Stephen  Harper does not care.
 
 Does the PM even care for the high rate of sucides in Canada now too? or those people killed by drunk drivers?  I do!’

Let’s first be fair to ourselves and others and note that no one thing specifically causes all the cancers, diabetic sick persons, heart problems in the world, rather it is a combination of several different factors starting with our personal ignorance, and the false neglect of the our Bodies.
 
To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases, depressions too  often we may still  have to deal with the root causes of the sicknesses too.. including the hypertensions,  stresses, anxieties, and our past wrong values, ignorance,  wrong doings too.   http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/2008/11/21/anti-suicide-watch/
