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.

Did you ever notice how the ostrich health ministers refuse to basically address the perverse, pretentious Medicare

NDP accuses government of sweeping Niagara hospital problems ‘under the rug’  Toronto Star – There is no need to rush a report into troubles including the deaths of 31 patients from a superbug at the six-hospitals in the Niagara Health System before the Oct. 6 election, Premier Dalton McGuinty said .

This is more unacceptable typical Liberal crap, people do now get murdered in hospitals and the Liberals they do try to delay it, deny it, cover it up too..

Many persons in this decade in Canada are still also getting a hospital acquired sickness and many are even dying from it still too.. It is really unbelievable that many people are dying in hospitals even because of the shit disease, c-difficile still.. a common sickness spread and escalated even because the hospital’s bathrooms also are not being cleaned adequately still and so this sickness it next spreads easily. Lazy Hospital employees are gossiping, goofing off, socializing, having a good time while patients die as a direct result now too. Poor house cleaning in hospitals is never ever acceptable. And absolutely mo one gets punished for it, not the health ministers, not the hospital administrators as well and this also is never ever acceptable

 

C.Difficle Causes Major Problems in  Cape Breton Hospital French Tribune – – ‎Jun 11, 2011‎  Almost two months from the start of the outbreak, there have been reported 49 cases of hospital-acquired C. difficle. The bacterium has been the cause of five in-patientdeaths during the pandemic, C. difficile.

.

French Tribune Fourth Patient to Die of C.Difficle  French Tribune – ‎Jun 10, 2011‎The Niagara Health System reported on Thursday that yet another C. difficle has died at the St, Catherine’s General Hospital. The outbreak of C. difficlebegan at the hospital on May 28.

Bacterium outbreak kills 16 in Niagara area DigitalJournal.com –   The Niagara Health System serves 434000 residents across 12  municipalities, according to CBC news. Reporting of the infection is mandatory in Ontario after an earlier outbreak claimed 62 lives “C.  difficile is responsible for the deaths of 2000

C. diff outbreak declared at Guelph General Guelph
Mercury   GUELPH – Following a spike in patient-acquired C. difficile cases at the Guelph General Hospital, including a patient who has since died, Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health has declared an outbreak of the bacterial infection.

Did you ever notice how the rather too often ostrich health ministers still do generally refuse to basically address the clearly still inadequate Medicare, health system and it’s serious shortcomings?  Medicare which is like a an old, run downed, over used,vehicle that now needs long delays, loads of money , continually repair, and very expensive maintenance.

You also do find out how the bad, 9-5 Medicare system even in the major cities now is when you do go to use it, when you really do need it. You also find out the common long delays to even try to get adequate medical treatments for your minor or serious problems, serious sicknesses . And you also do find out firsthand that Medicare is not fully covered, not fully available readily for all your Medicare needs and you do find out that it is short staffed in optometrists, dermatologists, cardiologists, in many of the areas that your general practioner, family doctor generally refuses to touch, get involved in, mostly because he or she is incompetent to deal with these areas.

It is also an undeniable fact that too many seniors are poor, the do not spend enough money on food and thus get sick more easier, as well as one ages one has less strength to do house cleaning, epically elderly seniors and as a result they too easily pick up infections at home as a result as well and do pass it on to many others as well.

None of this perverse, pretense Medicare, Ministers are acceptable.

The sad unacceptable tragedies in Canada’s too often perverse medical care systems

We do in Canada have now 2 separate levels of governments, federal and provincial ones monitoring our Medicare, health care systems and neither one still  really cares about all of the citizens good welfare clearly visible by their own mismanagement and indifference. None of this is ever acceptable too!
You really mostly do find out how bad Medicare is when you do need it, yes when you go to use
it.
 

Look also now at this perversity even the main governments now do not even have an accurate, reasonable full record of the number of sick persons, citizens in Canada and as to how many of them do have diabetes, cancer, heart diseases or whatever. So how can they plan ahead or manage the Health system properly then? They cannot, they do not!

For that matter they do not even have record of the major cause of vehicular accidents in Canada per year now as well. The useless police who do the traffic accidents reports refuse to do this record keeping. But guess what they all likley do have a full record of the amount of money generated by the parking and speeding tickets in every major city and province.. what a false priority now here too.. None of this is ever acceptable too!

  

And the other tragedy is that in spite of their too often lack of their competences, unprofessionalism they the bad doctors and bad nurses they all still do get paid for it fully even , and are rarely chastised. None of this is ever acceptable too!

 
Medical Errors and neglect still too often do abound in Canada in our medical care system. Doctors do too often still neglect their sick patients, like the drive by doctor who looked into a sick patient in passing through the door as he was walking down the hallway, and the doctors do even prescribe wrong medications, use a trial and error approach while too often as I have witnessed as well the nurses do give medications to the wrong patient. Many patients even get a hospital acquired sickness as well. None of this is ever acceptable too!
The sad also still very unacceptable tragedy in Canada’s too often perverse medical care system is that not only do the  hospitals, hospital administrators, doctors, nurses too often do  fail to reveal, to disclose all of their medical care  errors, but  they still are too often poorly supervised, left on their own. None of this is ever acceptable too!
 
Even when the hospital deaths are recorded a patient who goes to the doctor or a hospital for their medical treatment and there they next really do not get their proper medical care and they do as a result die an early death at home that death is merely recorded as an ordinary death..
Why? cause too many people falsely do not care still if someone else dies.. especially the paid  hospital administrators and paid governmental officials , paid political leaders included. None of this is ever acceptable too!

.

. Liars and incompetents  is what we seem to have mostly still for managers in many of our Hopsitals and governments. None of this is ever acceptable too!

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 

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/25/health-reform-merely-not-just-a-political-agenda/

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

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..

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..

Public spending on physicians has become the fastest-growing expense to Canada’s health-care system, a trend sparking growing calls for an overhaul to the payment system for doctors.” Doctors are paid for each consultation they provide or surgery they perform, which provides a perverse incentive to do more even when it may not be warranted, The incentive is to do the surgery, not necessarily to do the surgery on the person who really needs the surgery.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/payments-to-mds-to-top-26-billion/article1776182/

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 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.
     
    PS: Thank you for contacting Health Canada. Your message has been received. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
     
    Actions speak louder over mere lying words still too

    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.

    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..

    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/

    Canada Pretentious Medicare

    canada- BAD medicare-  (6)
      

    1 We can all easily know that Canada has a Medicare system that is now supposed to provide free, full medical services Canada wide to all persons irrespective of age, gender, position in life. In reality now this pretentious Medicare system firstly does not deliver it’s responsibilities Canada wide.. 

     
    2 Secondly no one in reality enforces the health act, not the federal government, not the provincial governments.
    3 Thirdly the Medical professionals themselves here do act as God and they are the ones solely who decide who lives and who dies, and who gets treated and who does not as well.
    4 Fourthly generally no one gets punished for not delivering the health act, or for their wrong doings here too.
     
    5 It is 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 the Justice Minister and the police too they all  have still to properly act on the matters even to reply adequately, properly to one of one of my many letters to them  and  when will they?  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?
    All unacceptable!

     

     
    Now who enforces the Health law in reality, and who rather  tries to pass the buck.. who buck passes? Health Canada and who else?

    Thank you for your email of July 30, 2010, concerning health care services for seniors. Under the Canada Health Act, the provincial and territorial governments are required to provide medically necessary hospital and physician services to their residents on a prepaid basis, and on uniform terms and conditions. As the administration and delivery of health care services are primarilyunder provincial and territorial jurisdiction, your decision to share your concerns about the quality of the health services your father received with  the Quebec government was the correct course of action to take.

    But what good did you do about it now still for so far, as the whole world can read on the internet that the last 6 months still I got no visible,   direct positive results from the Quebec government or the federal government , the police too on any of this, even  that I have detailed to you in writing even many times. We pay taxes for such poor services still too?

    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
     
    ABUSES EXISTS. If they were hiring appropriately trained staff and providing ongoing staff training and support, including criminal PROSECUTIONS AS WELL  you’re not going to have this many  reported incidents  IN HOSPITALS, OLD AGE HOMES. The Ontario Excellent Care for All Act,  requires that all errors be reported directly to hospital administrators. in Hospital acquired sicknesses, Deaths as well. The review found.. Surprise, surprise Professionals do lie, cover up, make false denials still! serious concerns with the hospital’s error reporting policy.     
     
    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.

    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.

    Hospital deaths account for half of deaths annually

    TRIAGE  (2)

    IT IS AN UNDENIABLE FACT THAT THE DOCTOR’S  ERRORS, THEIR FALSE OMISSION OF PROPER MEDICAL CARE ARE TOO OFTEN BURIED WITH THE PATIENT STILL HERE IN CANADA. 
    .
    When the  Quebec Verdun Hospital triage doctors, nurse often says to the  heart sick 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. RATHER THIS IS AN ACT CONTRARY TO THE CANADA HEALTH ACT AND THE PERSON SHOULD BE CRIMINAL PROSECUTED, DISMISSED NOW AS WELL FOR FAILING TO PROVIDE MEDICAL SERVICES. The doctor himself should have first made an appointment for the sick patient with a cardiologist  for a start.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/01/04/old-problems-falsey-allowed-still-to-continue-into-the-new-year/
    .
    By the way I report in 2012 showed this as being the worst Hospital in Canada.
    .
    TRIAGE  (1)
    What some people get sicker when they go to a Hospital still?
     
    https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/shit-disease-c-difficile-related-deaths-highest-in-recent-years-is-still-totally-unacceptable/
     . 
    Yet when I had in wrting too reported this to the premier Jean Charest of Quebec, the Quebec ombudsman, the Quebec health and social services minster, the Quebec justice minister they all have yet to do anything good about any of this too. THIS ALSO IS REALLY UNACCEPTABLE.
    TRIAGE  (4)
     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/

    Gastroenteritis (also known as gastro, gastric flu, tummy bug   and stomach flu, (although unrelated to influenza) is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, involving both the stomach and the small intestine (see also gastritis and enteritis) and resulting in acute diarrhea or by severe vomiting.. Infectious gastroenteritis which can often be seasonally common even in Hospitals now too may be caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. And it is important to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections in regard to the treatment as well.. Bacteria, and parasites  can be treated with antibiotics but Viruses do not respond to antibiotics .  Noroviruses are the leading cause of foodborne disease outbreaks worldwide, and may soon eclipse rotaviruses as the most common cause of severe pediatric gastroenteritis. Norovirus gastroenteritis can cause significant morbidity and mortality among children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised. Gastroenteritis CAN APRRENTLY BE TRREATED WITH A HONEY AND CINAMON TEA.

    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 aureusbacteria 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.

    DO NOTE THAT  I REALLY NOW DO NOT TRY TO PLEASE EVERYONE, I DO NOT DEPEND ON ADVERTISERS FOR ANY OF MY INCOME, SINCE I ALSO DO NOT WORRY ABOUT BEING FIRED OR NOW PLEASING ANY BOSSES I NOW CAN WRITE AND DEAL WITH THE TRUTH. SO I DO NOT HAVE TO RESORT TO LIES, OMISSIONS, SPINS AS WE SEE SO MANY BAD NEWS REPORTERS NOW EVEN DO AS WELL.  NOW I ALSO KNOW FOR DECADES THAT OF YOU GIVE A GOOD WORKER A JOB HE DOES HIS BEST, WHEREAS IF YOU GIVE A BAD WORKER A JOB, THE SHIFTLESS PERSONS TRIES TO AVOID DOING ANY WORK EVEN BY LYING, HAVING TOO MANY COFFEE BREAKS, GOSSIPING WITH MANY OTHERS, LONG LUNCH BREAKS.. SUCKING UP TO OTHERS.. ETC https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/04/05/canadas-rapidly-increasing-aging-seniors/
     .
     In reality we all do know there are good and bad people in real life, sadly too many bad persons, that includes bad professionals, the bad lawyers, bad doctors, bad nurses, bad hospital administrators, bad cops., bad RCMP, bad  corporations and bad business persons now too and not just too many bad, unacceptable Politicians, ministers too now. and bad hospitals even ..  I am really rightfully disgusted as to how too many of the so called Canadian Professionals such as cops, RCMP officers, doctors, nurses, pastors tend to be bullies, abusers of others and too often now… they seem to falsely think they are above the law cause they hold an important job. I also do rightfully  not hesitate to talk often also with the news media and to use my right of free speech about any abuses I encounter such as the false abuses of patients I do  see in Hospitals too often these days too.
     .
    Abusive and also indifferent nurses is one of the biggest problems I daily do encounter the last few months. A good doctor  prescribes a medication for a patient,  and a head nurse at the 2 nd floor Maison Herron Dorval, Quebec wrongfully changes it to suit her preferences for example! You would be surprised how many others do it, including a Convalescent home director now too. Only mostly the original   doctor can change the prescription but no one enforces that too often now.

    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.
     .

     Now as you and your loved ones get older you too will spend more time in Doctor’s offices, Hospitals, and convalescent, old age homes and will have wished that you had done something more about it all before too..

    .

    ONE OFTEN HEARS A CONCERNS FROM PATIENTS AND RELATED FAMILY MEMBERS WHETHER THEY SHOULD TRUST EVERYTHING THE ONLY HUMAN AND STILL NEED TO BE SUPERVISED DOCTORS, NURSES, HOSPITAL MANAGERS SAY OR PROMISES THEY WILL DO AND THE ANSWER IS NO CAUSE PEOPLE LIE AND MAKE PROMISES THAT OTHERS DO NOT KEEP. SOME PEOPLE RESPOND THAT THAT IS TOO MUCH WORK? WELL IF YOU REALLY DO WANT TO INSURE ADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS  YOU STILL DO HAVE TO MAINTAIN A CONTINUAL SURVEILLANCE OF THE MEDICAL TREATMENTS, SERVICES.

    .

    How to get better medical services overall? Well the wheel that makes the most noise seems to get the most grease still too..

    .

    Now many of us already do now about the all too-common Medical  PATIENT killers like: -MEDICATION MISTAKES. Wrong pills! Wrong blood transfusions! Wrong intravenous drips! Don’t bother even  to guessing how often this happens.  It’s worse than your wildest nightmares. Unsupervised Doctors and Hospitals make many mistakes like these every hour. -DOCTORS’ DIRTY HANDS. Incredibly, recent surveys show that doctors wash their hands between patients only half the time… and nearly 90% of stethoscopes harbor staph bacteria. -UNNEEDED SURGERY.  Surgeons could have used many less costly approaches THAT WOULD HAVE LESS NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS AND QUICKER HEALING TOO   choose instead to do the costly surgery – DOCTORS FAIL TO PRESCRIBE PROPER MEDICAL TEST . Medical Technicians have to be told what specific blood tests also have to be done first.. they do not automatically check for every possible sickness or diseases thus. HOSPITALS are filled with infection-causing bacteria that cannot be found anywhere else. Hospitals, which often house very large numbers of sick people, are the ideal breeding environment for the sometimes deadly bugs. Hospital patients generally have a lower level of immunity and offer little or no resistance to them. The hospital staff, due to constant exposure to the bugs, are fairly immune to them, but may pass them on to patients by touching them or their food, bedding, clothing, or medications.* Contrary to common belief, hospitals are among the most contaminated places in the world. In fact  it does not take much dirt to become a breeding place for billions of deadly infectious bacteria.

    .

    * Doctors can be the worst transmitters of disease in hospitals. Most doctors do not wash their hands except before an operation, when they wear sterilized gloves and gowns anyway. They may sometimes touch many dozens of patients within several hours, one after the other, without washing their hands even once. Even the doctor’s white gown is not as clean as it looks. It is only clean if it is washed every single day, which rarely happens.

    .

    * Bed sheets may be clean, but mattresses and pillows are not. The chance of being infected by bugs living in them is 1 in 20. * A hospital patient may receive up to 12 different kinds of medication, all of which produce side effects, SOME  that can lead to serious complications and even death. AND SOME MEDICATIONS GIVEN ARE GIVEN IN ERROR AS WELL * NOT SURPRISING TO MANY PERSONS hospitals PATIENTS OFTEN  are suffering from malnutrition due to a poor hospital diet OR BUDGET CONSTRAINTS. Malnutrition, even starvation was found to be the major cause of death among older people in hospitals.

    .

    Add the toxic side effects of the drugs, the presence of deadly bugs, as well as the stress and anxiety that accompany an illness and a stay in a hospital, and a poorly nourished elderly person NOW EVEN has very little chance of surviving

    .

    Anxiety stress relief vitamins and minerals work in different ways by providing nutrients which control the metabolism rate and the hormone levels within our bodies. By keeping these two things stable we can provide a better mechanism to cope with stress and anxiety inducing situations. Most of the recommended anxiety stress relief vitamins and minerals can be found in the foods that we eat and can simply be attained by eating a healthy and balanced diet covering all the major food groups. And that is why eating proper foods is important. . Also -I have often seen it myself, too many nurses and doctors wrongfully in no hurry to practically  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.. 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 now  too..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/02/even-many-doctors-are-mainly-selfish-self-centered-want-to-get-rich-fast-too/

    .

    – MANY PATIENTS WANT THEIR medicine delivered regularly daily at the same time and now  it seems to fluctuate through out different times of the day. they thus unnecessarily do   worry about missing their medicine.. and for them the lack of consistency in a patient having now having a more a regular Nurse is an important issue.. a new nurse for them now  almost everyday explains the medication delivery problems that still occur too often as well.. And hiring clearly ignoramuses,  fools, as workers, counselors, cause they are cheap, inexpensive now is not doing a great service to anyone, is not a real, valid help for the elderly too

    .

    – Medicating to death elderly persons WITH ERROR PRONE PILL PUSHING DOCTORS AND NURSES” and/or “starving them now to death BY NOT PROPERLY FEEDING THEM”, THE MOST COMMON APPROACHES I myself have often have seen now ARE NOT THE  VIABLE, EFFECTIVE, BENEFICIAL, COST EFFECTIVE  APPROACHES  NOR ARE THEY APPRECIATED, HELPFUL, BUT STILL ARE RATHER AN IMMORAL APPROACH. 

    .

    -Elderly persons need more special care cause they do tend to lack  the basic vitamins found in our common foods that help also to reduce one’s personal stress and anxiety.. for a hungry persons tends to be continually stressed and anxious and also do often   manifest  depression as well.. and what the classic treatment for depression is time, healing, by giving them proper nourishment, and proper rest and sleep.. in this case supplemented by proper pain killers, not improper pain killers  and/or merely  given proper sleeping pills too.   It seems that appropriate medication given by a face  mask if done immediately can alleviate further his panic and related breathing difficulties.. not just sleeping pills, or good food.. Now if you were also real , caring decent ministers in the federal government, then you and your provincial counterparts would supplement additional revenue to feed the elderly patients, who are being starved even murdered undeniably in old age homes, convalescent homes, hospitals in Canada, not just in 3rd world countries.. -Most everyone can realize that you really cannot separate the body, soul and spIrit, and that our physical health and related healings is also effected also by our self worth, stress, anxiety but doctors and Hospitals want to stay mainly within the direct medical areas of pills, surgeries.. and tend not to use beneficial depression counselors as well.. As a result some sick people definitely would now have healed quicker had their root personal problems also been looked at and proper counseling given..

    .

    – Clearly only fools cannot see that there is still very  much that can be done to improve the management, delivery of both our health care system and also the care of the elderly, persons too. . see also http://ummmuhammadahmad.wordpress.com/2010/01/03/hospitals-are-a-major-health-hazard/#comment-112

     .
    Here is the too often  sad unacceptable reality, news, result  complaining about any poor medical services, medical neglect, abuse, mistreatment of patients to doctors, nurses, administrators, ombudsman  too often is like talking to a brick wall.. they reaped their indifference, bad acts and sadly seem to have got used to their sins, errors, bad ways.. so now they even have to be fully exposed to all.In Montreal I have been to the English and French Hospitals and I can certainly say that the McGill run Hospitals provide some of the worst nursing, Doctor services as well.. the RVH, JGH, Lachine Hospital, and  Lakeshore General hospital included.. One rotten apple spoils the whole basket.. deal with it..  Doctors, Nurses, medical support staff  are human, they too sometimes try to get by with a minimal amount of personal effort, and so as result patients do not always get their proper medical care. A good rule is never to go to a hospital alone, doctors are  afraid of loud mouthed witnesses who can cause them to be sued for mal  practice and cause their mal practice insurance rates to go up significantly.. . No one is immune to danger, or death, not even you, your loved ones now too. It can happen where you live.. AND IT DOES NOW TOO. It is not a pleasant site, sight, a person was alive and a few minutes later they are dead and next are being wheeled down the hall to the morgue, COVERED UP ALL IN A WHITE SHEET.. the nursing, support staff are clearly upset, the strain of helplessness gripping many of them too.. urine containers are still being left alone, allowed to be scattered on the floors in the patients rooms.. some how some of the medical personnel, support staff they  wrongfully still cannot believe that the fatal diseases are caused by poor hygiene.. after all they have been personally neglecting the hygiene aspect for a long time too.. . Now about 225,000 Canadian patients a year suffer from hospital-acquired infections that substantially extend their stays, and between 8,000 and 12,000 people die annually as a result of  infection with common but dangerous infections – C. difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) – The infections   C. difficile, MRSA and VRE – are not airborne, but spread by contact. yet the police make a lot of noise about number of   deaths caused by speeding..  yet the police make a lot of noise about number of   deaths caused by speeding AND DRUNK DRIVERS..  we need more cops rather in the hospitals aressting the bad Health Ministers,  bad doctors and bad nurses etc.,  Now less than a hundred Canadians will die in one year due to car accidents, but thousands will die due to a hospital acquired infection? So why has not the Conservative government done too much here? they do not care about Canadian lives still? Ex-fire chief of London Ontario was jailed for child porn – Crime – and so should our health ministers be also jailed now too.. for their poor inactions.. . And the  likely reason that roommates increase the risk of infection is that patients share a washroom. (The mantra in infection control is: One bum per toilet.) Another likely explanation involves inadequate handwashing by patients and health professionals alike; doctors and nurses sometimes don’t wash their hands between patient visits in a single room. in the meantime, there are things we can do: We should be cleaning our hands, and we should really scrutinize how we clean our hospitals.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/private-hospital-rooms-lower-risk-of-c-difficile/article1420448/
    .
    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.. Now after being a half a century in Canadian Hospitals I thought I saw it all.. Until I sat this week visiting a person in a serious sick, troubled persons ward at the Pointe Claire, West island Hospital, Lake Shore General Hospital,    Pointe-Claire is a municipality located on the Island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada… and for the first time I also had no complaints… but praise for I really could not believe what I saw, the real extra effort that the medical, support staff gave to all the patients, some of them very elderly too. It is my personal observation, and that of my father that this Hospital does it’s best in dealing with sickness, infections. Now if all Hospital departments were like this.. it would be heavenly.  But a week later I found out the whole truth as to how they do provide a minimum of doctors, nurses services.. . And the    Lakeshore Hospital battling superbug   MONTREAL – Lakeshore General Hospital posted a guard on its fourth floor west wing to limit visits to patients because of an outbreak of hospital-borne bacterial infections.Now this good hospital is already taking almost all the necessary precautions for cleanliness except it is forgetting to use rather disposable paper bed pans, and disposable paper urine containers, and as a result toilets   often remain contaminated, and I would suggest that  they do visit the LaSalle Hospital that now has successfully used them..  Let me be clear about it, Never mind the lies, spins, excuses too, One hospital death due to anyone’s bad habits, neglect is unacceptable,  one too many and all the time now too. Cleanliness is next to godliness especially in Hospitals, convalescent homes  and old ages homes now too. This neglect can open doctors and hospitals to serious rightful lawsuits too now over the death of any person.. let   also  the Quebec government now as well take proper actions here in all Hospitals too..

    .

     ..  It is really unacceptable and  still unbelievable that of all people the medical personnel. medical support staff, they too often still  do not take their jobs seriously  enough and they are the main cause of many persons hospital deaths. What are you doing good about it? in reality? Now what are you all now really doing about many people suffering in your  Hospitals unnecessarily these days too due to the lack of competent staff? Actions speak louder over mere words.
    .
     It is really really unacceptable that Personal Cleanliness in Hospitals and Hospital food isn’t always that great still too.. It is fact I have seen it the actual quality of food varies also from one hospital to another even . A report released 10/26/09 by Thomson Reuters, parent company of the Reuters news service, stated that   the current U.S. health system wastes  in a year, one-third of the current healthcare e.xpenditure. The report cites the following as sources of wasteful spending:
    .

    Overuse of antibiotics and lab tests to protect against malpractice lawsuits (Pennsylvania State University estimates that as much as 91 percent of our nation’s healthcare expenditures are related to defensive medicine); Signifcant Fraud  in Medicare claims  ; Administrative inefficiency and redundant paperwork; Medical mistakes; Preventable conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes http://www.healthfreedom.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=933&Itemid=1 .

    .

    A  doctor is concerned that Manitoba labs are putting patients in danger , the province is now conducting an external review into the matter.  Pediatric pathologist Dr. David Grynspan says he’s noticed problems at provincial labs for the past two years. Last month, he submitted a 20-page report to the province which outlined concerns about heavy workloads, lack of accountability and some senior managers over-billing for work. Grynspan says those factors compromise patient safety. He says staffing levels may be to blame. Currently there are eight vacancies in the pathology department out of 46 positions. Grynspan says his report outlines one case where a patient’s samples were misdiagnosed.  Tory health critic Myrna Driedger says the province’s external review led by Winnipeg doctor Sharon McDonald won’t be objective.  “I think we need a totally independent external review and an auditor on that committee to look into these allegations,” says Driedger.  Arlene Wilgosh, the board chair for Diagnostic Services Manitoba, the group which oversees the province’s public labs says McDonald is bringing in a pathologist from outside the province, along with an independent labour lawyer to help in the external review.  Grynspan says he doesn’t agree with the review process and would like to see a completely external auditor do a thorough investigation of the pathology department.  http://winnipeg.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20091211/wpg_pathology_091211/20091211/?hub=WinnipegHome

    Emergency  Wards in Hospitals can be a deadly place.. many people pick up all kinds of sicknesses there too.. shit disease included.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/08/29/victims-of-deadly-c-difficile-outbreak/  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/08/shit-disease/

    .

    Quebec health officials  reported on Nov 28, 2009 a very insignificant drop in hospital-acquired Clostridium difficile illnesses, shit disease,  which causes serious abdominal cramping , diarrhea, and many deaths.. The number of cases fell to 4.3 cases in 10,000 from five cases. One case is still one too many now.. Good Medical, Hospital hygiene  is still essential to  battles C. difficile. The Quebec government too still  has a long way to go to dealing with this adequately as well . Study shows sharing a hospital room increases your risk of picking up infections  

    .

    The Canadian Press –  TORONTO – A new study says sharing a hospital room increases your risk of picking up an infection during your stay.  The study, by researchers from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., shows that each new roommate raises your infection risk by about 10 per cent. Senior author Dr. Dick Zoutman says the findings suggest single-room hospital designs would be cheaper to build in the long run, because they would lower rates of costly hospital-acquired infections. The authors looked at rates of three common hospital infections among patients admitted to a southeastern Ontario hospital during a 4 1/2 year period ending in 2005. Previous studies have shown that rates of hospital infections are higher in multi-bed settings than when patients are housed one to a room. But few studies have actually looked at whether the number of roommates you have in hospital increases your risk of developing an infection like C. difficile or drug-resistant Staph aureus.

    http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100105/national/hospital_infections_roommates . Visitor restrictions in place at Trenton and Belleville hospitals – ‎Dec 31, 2009‎ Trenton Memorial Hospital’s inpatient unit is closed to visitors following an outbreak of the Norovirus.  Quinte Health Care (QHC) announced the closure following a number of patients contracting a gastrointestinal illness , the Norovirus, on Wednesday, Dec. 30. Belleville General Hospital’s Quinte 6 ward is also closed due to the same gastrointestinal illness.  The Norovirus is highly contagious with symptoms including diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Increased infection control procedures and visitor restrictions have been put in place..  Noroviruses are found in the stool or vomit of infected people. People can become infected with the virus in several ways, including: People are reminded not to visit patients at any QHC site if they are sick. Visitors must wash their hands upon entering and leaving the unit and they should not use the patient’s washrooms or kitchens, rather they should go elsewhere.. Norovirus is also called viral gastroenteritis, food poisoning, and calicivirus. Noroviruses and Salmonella are a leading cause of foodborne illness outbreaks. Norovirus affects people of all ages.  Outbreaks of norovirus infection also often occur in closed or semi-closed communities, such as long-term care facilities, overnight camps, hospitals, prisons, dormitories, and cruise ships where the infection spreads very rapidly by either person-to-person transmission or through contaminated food.  Many Norovirus outbreaks have been traced to food that was handled by the  infected person. Norovirus is rapidly inactivated by sufficient heating and by chlorine-based disinfectants, but the virus is less susceptible to alcohols and detergents, Gastrointestinal can apparently be treated with a tea beverage with honey and cinnamon.

    QHC OUTBREAK:The highly contagious noro-virus is spreading to other hospitals. CKWS

    Northumberland News – Belleville Intelligencer

    .

    Hospital, medical administrators should consider cheap, disposable, paper, clothing for  all medical staff seriously!!! and save money on costs of medical diseases not being spread..

     .
    NOW WE HAVE ALL THE MEDICAL EXPERTS WARNING US ALL about the new diseases that are resistant to antibiotics, when the basic reality is that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure HERE TOO, and that applies basically  to the too common shit disease, the brown plaque,  and the common dirty toilet utensils found in bathrooms, patient rooms, hospitals and NURSING HOMES  as well..
     .
    OTTAWA – Ottawa-area hospitals are seeing a growing number of sick people   linked to the Norovirus, a highly contagious stomach bug, mostly related to food poisonings, which causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps, and people can carry the virus before they develop symptoms and it can be passed easily to vulnerable Hospital patients. Closing a ward that is affected by the related diarrhea and vomiting is essential to limit the spread of the infection. The hospital-based patients with the symptoms are placed  in isolation, as are  the affected staff, as there is no specific treatment for the infection, so isolation is the only way to prevent it spreading. “Staff affected by diarrhea and vomiting will only return to work once they have been symptom-free for 48 hours. ” The basic only way to prevent it spreading is also to limit the number of people who come into contact with those who have been effected. Additional people who are sick are advised to stay home and avoid visiting crowded places such as schools, hospitals, daycare centres and nursing homes until at least 48 hours after their nausea or vomiting has passed. Hospital visitors are to make sure they wash their hands before and after visiting to prevent it from further spreading .  People have also been advised to avoid bringing young children to the hospital. My personal inspection of a local Montreal hospital  was that too many of the hand wash dispensers available  are empty and are not being refilled ASAP. . SHARING A BATHROOM WITH A SICK PERSON IS REALLY, REALLY DANGEROUS.. NOT JUST THE ROOM… . An elderly polish persons on the LGH geriatric hospital floor takes her clothes off, shits in bed, rambles, is incoherent.. and the medical staff say it is none of my business cause I am not her son or a Family member. But what here is what totally had surprised me.. when her son and nephew, nieces came to see her, she was totally coherent, recognized them, spoke to them in English, and she asked them to be taken home.. when they left she went to be crazy person again.. she needs not just medical care bit a social worker to help her.
    .
    On this same LGH floor  most of the sick people are under the same personal strain, stress, not knowing where they will need  up next or what will happen to them next.. it is part of the pain and their personal reaction problem. No one AT THIS Hospital talks to them about this.. not the chaplains even or the social workers.. someone really does needs to counsel  them now compassionately as well.
     .
    Many staff have talked to now  also complain about the management conflict of personal interest, the Board of directors of this typical McGill Hospital are doctors, who tend to mainly insure more money is made available to other doctors and not to the working staff.
    .
    The Hospital clearing, staff’s concern about spreading shit diseases rather  has been reduced in the last week too  and they are doing less about it..
    .
    IT IS A RIOT TO ME HOW PEOPLE HAVE GENERAL SOLUTIONS TO DEALING WITH THE MEDICAL INADEQUACIES AND AVOID THE LOCAL SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS. And what is the specific local solutions? Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons works best and serves everyone the best, that means going after the bad Hospital directors, bad doctors, bad supervisors, bad ombudsman, bad, lazy, no good  hospital staff now too. . I was yesterday talking to a Hospital staff directly and she too had said wise people can easily see, the staff included who the no good, lazy, inadequate, pretentious.. . I had waited for weeks for the ombudsman to call me back at the LGH, and she did not, so I next called her.. she next had  promised to address these concerns.. seeing is believing. I await her results. . Vomiting bug closes three wards at Ulster Hospital  The hospital has asked visitors to wash their hands before and after visits Three wards at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald have been closed after an outbreak of a vomiting and diarrhoea bug amongst patients. The South Eastern Health Trust has said it has put extra cleaning measures in place.  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/northern_ireland/8457397.stm .
    .
    Now any Hospital, seniors home saving money on staff, house cleaning, hygiene is a false saving   still. I really do think the Lakeshore General Hospital has learned the truth that doubling the nursing, medical and cleaning  staff pays off in the long run with less patients getting sick with infectious diseases and thus requiring less expensive medical care overall as a result too. No doubt about it all Hospitals can use and do need more staff and they next will save more money in the long run by patients nor rather getting more sicker..
    .
    Did they say that the infection was growing somewhere in the ER? Sounds like a late-night movie, but this is very serious. Who has the contract for cleaning, the same people who clean Maple Leaf Foods? Some serious Infections can be   airborne transmitted as well as the standard contact transmission, and no serious disease should be taken lightly by anyone.   http://www.cbc.ca/canada/manitoba/story/2009/12/11/mb-bacterial-infection-er-hospital.html https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/07/21/listeriosis-investigator-report/
     .
    The poor Doctor’s, medical staff and Hospital Hygiene is still the root cause of these very serious sickness that does  NEXT LEADS TO A SIGNIFICANT EXPONENTIAL  ESCALATION OF THE MEDICAL RELATED HOSPITAL COSTS NOW TOO. YES THE HOSPITALS ARE GUILTY OF NOW SAVING MONEY IN THE WRONG PLACES. . Before 2007, Canadian hospitals OUTSIDE OF Quebec were not required to publicly report their in-hospital death rates.  The public release would force hospital officials to examine their internal practices and improve patient care. Reporting rates to the public allows patients to examine potential risks at their local hospitals. It also forces hospitals – everyone from the hospital boards to the CEOs to the medical and nursing staff – to compare themselves to other institutions. Dr. David Austin, chief of staff at Markham Stouffville Hospital, said the 43-point drop in the institution’s mortality rate can largely be attributed to how the hospital has improved the way its staff appropriately document patient charts. The hospital has also brought in sub-specialist physicians, including hospitalists and intensivists, to deal with specific in-patient issues.  “If you have sepsis in hospital, you have a one in three chance of dying,”   ”If you are admitted to hospital for stroke, you have a one in five chance of dying. If you are admitted to hospital for heart attack, you have a one in 10 chance of dying.” Dr. Indra Pulcins, director of indicators and performance measurement at   Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/article/737552–hospital-death-rates-fall-in-new-era-of-disclosure
    .
     ”Hygiene” issues plague Quebec hospitals, and “hygiene” and “abuse” and “theft” issues plague assisted care facilities for the aged.”. ” it all comes down to not being able to clean properly due to a lack of staff, lazy staff, staff that don’t how to do their jobs well. they lack teaching. a superficial job gets done at best. it is very unsanitary. we should be using bleach to clean everything. the MGH is quite dirty esp. the stretchers and bathrooms. St Mary’s is the cleanest hospital I have ever seen. start cleaning people!” ” Hate to tell you all, but go to any hospital and you will find the same thing.  This isn’t limited to just Lakeshore, although people choose to pick on it. Trust me, the bigger places are just as bad – they just have better spin doctors.” ”my grandmother got it at the Jewish a few months ago. “ . Hospital death rates and the related causes are  a major cause for concern still. As basic and common sense as it may seem all doctors and nurses, support staff on a daily, continual basis do  need also to ensure their own personal hygiene, cleanliness in medical care,  at all times too,  but they still for sure do not.. Imagine this also the Doctors, nurses, staff  wearing their own dirty clothes in Hospitals, many do not even use a lab coat or a clean uniform, scrubs anymore.. unsatisfactory hygiene.  Saving money on medical scrubs costs millions in sick patients.  No matter that some of the sickness, diseases are brought to the hospital by the patients themselves, it next must not be allowed to spread through the Hospital.. Many people get more sick as a result  in emergency rooms, hospitals .  This is Unacceptable. The spread of C. difficile infection,  Sepsis  disease  is at a greater risk in hospitals or other places such as nursing homes where there are many people in close contact with one another.    Hospital employees next having their own locked toilets, does not  help the overall problem now too.. it merely is a still unacceptable admission there exist a  problem here.
    .

    Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice:  Clostridium difficile-Associated Disease : “The Perfect Storm” Has Arrived and it falsely kills many because it is not talked about enough too.. There should be weekly mandatory reporting of all hospital acquired infections, not just the number of Hospital deaths Have you also not noticed that most hospital patients, many of who are too too sick to get up, they do not wash their hands before they eat Personnel Cleanliness in Hopsitals and even the Hospital food ain’t always that great still too.. -All medical staff must follow  the hospital antibiotic prescribing policy and taking care that broad spectrum antibiotics are not given unnecessarily . -They all  must wear  disposable gloves and aprons, disposable lab coats,  scrubs, when treating sick patients and those  who have C. difficile infection and when dealing with,   or cleaning equipment that could be contaminated (eg bedpans). -There must be regularly cleaning the hospital environment, including floors and surfaces, with disinfectant or detergent to get rid of spores, infections. -They must insure the keeping seriously sick patients, especially those  who have C. difficile infection in isolation from those who don’t. – Keeping clean and washing one’s hands often are also essential . 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.

    .

    Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too. Cover-up, and denials are  a sad fact of life in Canada especially by our civil and public servants, including cops, doctors, hospitals, professionals, politicians, PM Stephen Harper as well..  and needless to say Doctors and Hospital have not kept  good figures  on the number of deaths even in Hospitals, and their causes too willingly too,   and what about those discharged persons who have died outside of the Hospital too? The causes of death are hard to determine especially when the governments have falsely cut back on the money available for autopsies Canada wide too.  All professionals, cops, Governments too sadly are known to hide bad things from the public. “There’s so many opportunities for lapses, so even a small percentage of times when maybe things don’t happen as they should, can translate into a substantial number of cases.  It is unbelievable that in today’s society some medical staff no longer wear clean uniforms while working in Hospitals  but instead do wear their ordinary clothes , like I saw a nurse do so last week at the McGill Royal Victoria Hospital, and  this is unacceptable, it can encourage the spread of diseases, since these clothes cannot be simply removed and  replaced like a lab coat can be.” Further simple measures such as hand washing and adequately cleaning the equipment and rooms can seriously prevent the spread of infection that can lead to sepsis.  Some serious Infections can be also airborne transmitted as well as the standard contact transmission, and no serious disease should be taken lightly by anyone.  Most often the best Prevention includes Clean garments, and  regular  Hand washing. Soap and water is the most effective measure and Alcohol-based products may be used but are generally less effective since Alcohol has no effect on spores but mechanical action of hand-washing may help get rid of them. All hospital srufeces do need to be cleaned daily too. And  Eliminating or reducing the associated disease risk factors is also still essential.    http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/id_CdiffFAQ_HCP.html#10.
    .
    Another  simple change  would be to have hand-washing facilities easily available in the hospital cafeteria.  Here I have never seen a hand-washing sink in the eating area.  So, when people go to eat their meals in the cafeteria, they touch many door handles that are rich reservoirs for germs, they handle money, and then they sit down to eat, which is an open invitation to colonize their gut with resistant bacteria, which they can then easily pass on to someone else, such as a patient.  It seems such an obvious improvement to have a hand-washing sink in the eating area so that busy hospital personnel can try to keep themselves from becoming a link in the chain of infection.” . Not doing enough about C-dificile, or shit disease can lead to more serious medical-personal problems and can lead to the more serious  Sepsis problme which can seriously cause more personal harm,  result in extensive tissue damage, organ failure or death  to  the persons with minor infections, such as the flu or urinary tract infections, and to strike people with serious wounds, extremely weakened immune systems Early diagnosis and treatment of sepsis with antibiotics also improves the chances of recovery.  But all this take money and real effort now too. Hospital staff too often want to get paid but do not want to meet their full responsibility , and these type of persons should be immediately fired for the good of all too.. . Clostridium difficile–associated disease (CDAD) is used to describe a constellation of illnesses caused by the toxins, A and B, produced by the C difficile bacillus  Factors such as predominant use of high risk antibiotics, reduction in house cleaning  staff, increased nursing workloads, antiquated facilities, and general changes in hospital populations (ie, increased number of immuno compromised, debilitated, and elderly patients) may also be contributing factors to resistance of treatments.  Clostridium difficile is an anaerobic, spore-forming, gram-positive bacillus.  The spores are resistant to many types of disinfectants, heat, and dryness and may persist for months on surfaces such as bed rails, commodes, electronic thermometers, stethoscopes, skin folds, and the hands of caregivers. The spores can cause disease in persons at high risk for CDAD. Three elements are required for prevention of CDAD: proper hand washing, contact isolation, and environmental measures.  Spores of C difficile tend to thrive on uncleaned hospital surfaces. For that reason, stringent daily cleaning of all hospital surfaces likely to be contaminated with feces is essential. A hypochlorite-based disinfectantor a 1:10 bleach solution is recommended.  Frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, call lights, television remote control devices, soap dispensers, faucets, bed rails, and telephones also require thorough daily cleaning. Hospital policies regarding dedicated equipment, dishes, linens, waste, and patient transport should be in place and enforced. Non disposable equipment such as glucose meters, cardiac monitors and electrocardiography and x-ray machines should be disinfected according to manufacturers’ guidelines. “It can be safely concluded that all of these treatments work some of the time, none work all of the time.” Hygiene care and vigilance are always still essential. Proper treatment and Prevention of dehydration is essential for patients with CDAD. Prevention is also the most important treatment.  – – Maria E. Pelleschi . Today, blood culture and culture techniques are the gold standard for detection of a medical infection.  The turnaround time for culture/blood culture is lengthy, ranging from 48 to 72 hours. As a result,  this can often be too late for many sick people if the disease has not been diagnosed even sooner.. or of it had not been prevented.. . “My brother is currently a patient at UVA for the 5th week due to a severe case of sepsis. He already had his all his toes on both feet amputated along with part of his right foot. He will lose 3/4 of his index finger and some fingertips. We had never heard of sepsis before this. His PCP was treating him for a virus. He was going back to PCP for the 3rd or 4th time when he collaped in the doctors office. He was then transported to the ER where they diagnosised him. Only through the grace of GOD he is still with us. He has a long, long road to recovery ahead of him.”

     Children who are more reactive to stress are more likely to thrive when raised in supportive parental environments, according to a new report. Lead author of the report, published in the journal Child Development, Jelena Obradovic has argued that kids’ biological reactions to stressful situations were more affected by family settings.   “Parents and teachers may find that sensitive children, like orchids, are more challenging to raise and care for, but they can bloom into individuals of exceptional ability and strength when reared in a supportive, nurturing, and encouraging environment.”  Parenting and childcare experts advise that family dynamics and relationships play a crucial role in a child’s early development, laying the foundations for social skills and behaviour in later life. One may not notice it at a young age but the end effect of stress, anxiety clearly often reveal themselves in elderly patients

      ” Florence Nightingale had written rules on cleaning. Nurses need degrees and are too good to do this work now..  ”Nurse” She’s spot on! Lazy cleaning staff- improperly supervised and trained. I recently had a “round” with management at the Bay Fairview, for the indecent ladies washroom on the 2nd floor. What is going on? Menial-type jobs, like cleaning, are contracted out to people who have no idea what sanitary conditions are. Most of us don’t live in pig-pens here in Canada, so we don’t want to see those conditions in public places. A hospital should “sparkle” and smell clean, for obvious reasons! and PS: I don’t go to The Bay anymore. It’s an insult! “ 

       Sepsis  last year resulted in about 30,587 hospitalizations and 9,320 deaths in Canadian hospitals excluding Quebec, In comparison, there were 30,542 hospitalizations for strokes in 2007-08, with some 6,423 deaths. Of the 49,220 hospitalizations for heart attacks, about 5,684 people died. in almost one-quarter of 2008-09 sepsis cases, patients were diagnosed after being admitted to hospital. Those who developed sepsis while in hospital were 56 per cent more likely to die than those diagnosed with sepsis before they were admitted to hospital. It is expected that the results for Quebec are just as bad if not worse. . Another  common way of becoming sepsis  is an oral/dental source such as a tooth infection.. . Overuse of antibiotics  is building widespread resistance and threatening to halt vital medical treatments such as hip replacements, intensive care for premature babies and cancer therapies, health experts say. A 2002 survey that showed 60 percent of patients do not know that antibiotics do not work against viruses like flu and colds.” Patients often demand antibiotics,” she said. And doctors often think, she said, that giving in is a quicker way to deal with a demanding patients than persuading them otherwise. . Many, many person still do die each year in Hospitals too from preventable medical errors ranging medical errors, drug overdoses to infections caught in the hospital. Exhausted, sleepiness, upset ,overwhelmed, stressed out medical staff   are far more likely to make an error. Teaching hospitals across the United States have moved to limit residents’ work weeks to 80 hours to reduce fatigue-related errors and what about those in Canada?Mortality rates for Most Canadian hospitals are out and  the Ontario Waterloo Region has one of the best and the worst rates in the province. The Grand River Hospital out of one hundred and fifty hospitals in the province … it ranked 150 for mortality rates … the worst in the province. Unacceptable. Is it a reflection on the University of Waterloo now as well? . One death is one too many!!! Never mind the average statistics of death!! Canadian hospitals need  to reduce mortality rates, for severe infections are still prominent too… a new study found that nearly 10,000 patients died in hospital of sepsis in 2008,  a condition resulting from bad Hospital hygiene,  disinfection, House cleaning practices firstly. Now there is evidence that some hospital-acquired infections that lead to sepsis can be avoided by controlling the spread of infection. And while hospital standardized mortality may  appear to be decreasing overall in Canada, some unacceptable conditions, such as sepsis still remains to be dealt  with adequately, fully, immediately for reducing mortality in hospitals.  CIHI’s study shows that in 2008-2009, more than 30,500 patients were hospitalized with sepsis in Canada, not including Quebec. The study noted that just over 30 per cent of patients hospitalized with sepsis died, and that compared to 18.0 per cent for stroke patients and 9.1 per cent for heart attack patients. Studies have shown various factors such as early recognition and treatment can reduce deaths from sepsis. “There is lots of evidence that hospital-acquired infections that lead to sepsis can be prevented. Instituting the  best practices should be a priority for reducing sepsis and mortality rates,” Dr. Claudio Martin, a critical care physician at London Health Sciences Centre, At an Ontario health centre, a task force was created to adopt known best practices for early recognition and treatment on the centre’s wards and in the emergency room and developing cases on the ward have  picked up more quickly and related treatment started sooner . Not every Hospital cares to do this still because of the cost and bother in Canada. Unacceptable. . A poorly managed Hospital and personnel is still always rightfully unacceptable even if it is McGill. I have often been wondering why the Montreal McGill Hospitals tend to provide the basic , or pretentious services, it is cause the real doctors, professionals, self serving, greedy,  money hungry doctors  now are trying to make a buck in the private sector and are generally not available to all, even though Canada supposedly only has a fully public accessible Medicare system, and the Hospital directors who generally are doctors too go along with this too.. conflicting self interest . More than 9,300 hospital patients died of sepsis – a form of blood poisoning caused by infections – last year in Canada, new data reveal. Last year, there were 87,612 deaths in Canadian hospitals, excluding Quebec. Hospital deaths account for almost half of all mortality. Moreover, the number of sepsis cases has increased and the mortality rate has held steady over the past five years.  “Sepsis is one of the top causes of patient deaths in hospitals. It’s a big problem,” There has been a strong push in recent years to improve patient safety, particularly in hospitals. “It’s really not an easy problem to resolve,”  Sepsis can occur when a bacterial, fungal or viral infection moves into the bloodstream and attacks vital organs. While sepsis can develop from relatively minor infections, such as influenza or a urinary tract infection, it most often develops in people who have serious wounds or compromised immune systems, and in surgery patients with catheters.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/blood-poisoning-a-top-cause-of-death-in-hospitals/article1396660/

    Blood poisonings, infection traced to ER 40 affected by outbreak at Seven Oaks General Hospital  12/12/2009 1:00  A bloodstream infection has affected 40 patients at Seven Oaks General Hospital — including two who have died. The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority issued a news release late Friday afternoon, describing the situation at Seven Oaks as an outbreak in the emergency ward and asking anyone treated with intravenous medication and suffering flu-like symptoms to contact their physician. Dr. John Embil, the WRHA medical director of infection, prevention and control,  said his department became aware of the outbreak at the end of the summer when staff found a number of bloodstream infections linked to an organism known as Serrtatia marcescens.  Twenty patients were infected when Embil and hospital staff began tracking the source of the infection in late summer, and another 20 people have since been identified as also having the infection. Dr. Ricardo Lobato de Faria, the chief medical officer at Seven Oaks, said all but two of the 40 patients showed signs of the infection after they were admitted to the hospital following treatment in the emergency ward. Two others were treated in emergency and released but recalled when their blood work revealed the infection, he said.  Embil said officials’ detective work determined that the infection originated in Seven Oaks’ emergency ward but they’ve yet to learn what caused it in the first place.  http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/blood-infection-traced-to-er-79119197.html .

     It is always the same old problem, Doctors and medical staff continual indifference to the need of others, Hospital costs savings so the Doctors can get more money, even bad who Doctors fail to define the sicknesses soon enough. Law suits and the related bad publicity have been proven to be one of the most effective weapons in dealing with medical inadequacies.

     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, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well.

    Medical Errors are also still a  leading cause of Deaths. More and more people die from medical mistakes each year than from highway accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS. . And pharmaceutical drugs kill more people every year than are killed in traffic accidents. Many hospitalized patients suffered a serious adverse drug reaction (ADR)  and died as a result. The researchers found that over 75 per cent of these ADRs were dose-dependent, which suggests they were due to the inherent toxicity of the drugs rather than to allergic reactions. The researchers concluded that ADRs are now the fourth leading cause of death  after heart disease, cancer, and stroke. Any deaths   from  misdiagnosis of the ailment , deaths from unnecessary surgery;  from medication errors in hospitals;  deaths from other errors in hospitals;  deaths from infections in hospitals;  deaths from  adverse effects of medications, or from adverse drug reactions used to treat the illness, they  are all always still unacceptable! . And please do note this reality the biggest hospital complaint of really sick patients is the lack of competent nurses on duty 24 hours per day.. Hospitals provide babysitting services and not rather real medical care it seems too often.. wait till you get to the hospital and find out next firsthand what it is really like too.. . It is stupidly amazing how many crooks, clearly bad persons, Doctors, Hospital adminstrators too,   are still so unrepentant that they do think that all they have to do is just lie some more, bully some more of their accusers and they too  will next get away with it.. well they can dream on but there is eventually a limit to the amount of lying, abuse many will take..
    .
      The majority of news media main aim is to make more money, not rather to basically, really help the citizens. The news media likes to sell the good news, the positive spins, the sensational stories, interesting news rather than mainly dealing with real solutions to the real problems all citizens now often do face. For instance the news media too often does not state specially what is the unnecessary cause of so many hospitals deaths.. the critical items such as infection mostly due to shit diseases, poor hospital hygiene,  poor hospital managers, too often incompetent and under staffed medical personnel as well.. well I rightfully do tell the truth here too.
    .
    In 1982 I drove to Edmonton Alberta and sat directly in the Albertan Minister of Economic Development, and the Albertan Minister of Manpower, Career development, and I had asked them face to face what they were doing specially to diversify Alberta’s economy and to help to create more  jobs for Albertans.. but these useless twits still did did nothing, and they both lost their reelections, and their workers too had  let the party caucus decide what to do and so today  Alberta is in a real big big mess today.. with home prices a dropping,  home sales are going doing, many many people getting laid off, and their Alberta  government revenue is going down fast too. Alberta is in a big mess these days still too.. The Albertan politicians, leaders now  were another bunch of know it all who did not want to listen to any one else.. and such History repeats itself. . Now what are we all now really doing about many people dying in all Hospitals unnecessarily these days too? Actions speak louder over mere words.. . Less people do die at home these days, for it is the trend to go to the hospital when sick or dying these days too. I had  contacted the Lakeshore General Hospital Ombudsman, but she was  still on Holidays for  WHILE too and so who really cares about the sick people’s complaints? IN FACT I HAD WRTITEN TO 4 Montreal  Hopsital’s ombudsman and none of the results were fully satisfactory to date even.. I have yet to get a final written report from them too.

    Deadly yet easily preventable bloodstream infections continue to plague American hospitals because facility administrators fail to commit resources and attention to the problem, according to a survey of medical professionals released Monday. An estimated 80,000 American patients per year develop catheter-related bloodstream infections, or CRBSIs — which can occur when tubes that are inserted into a vein to monitor blood flow or deliver medication and nutrients are improperly prepared or left in longer than necessary. About 30,000 patients die as a result, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accounting for nearly a third of annual deaths from hospital-acquired infections in the United States.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A report released Thursday by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Medical Examiner’s Commission revealed that common prescription drugs were responsible for more deaths in 2007 than common illegal drugs.“ The rate of deaths caused by prescription drugs is over three times as high as the rate of deaths caused by all illicit drugs combined,” said Director of the Office of Drug Control Bill Janes. Deaths involving the use of oxycodone, methadone, cocaine, alcohol, and heroin all rose in 2007, that according to the report. http://swampie.wordpress.com/2008/06/12/fdle-pharmaceuticals-kill-more-than-street-drugs/

    This also offers a Canadian window into the state’s overwrought preoccupation with making money at all costs, disregarding the citizens concerns too. Sadly Like too many political parties it seems the citizens mainly do not count, their views or needs, desires. they only count on election days. I was once talking to deputy Minister Ken Kowalski of Alberta about this as to why and he replied cause in Alberta they do not pay the taxes. But rather the real reason is the too often lack of respect for the all of citizens still by our leaders, civil and public servants most political parties Canada wide.. Police, RCMP’s unacceptable, poor attitudes towards most of the citizens now as well

     .
    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..

    THREE THINGS IN THE PAST YOU CAN NOTICE ABOUT CANADA’S MAJOR NEWS MEDIA
    .
    1: THEY TENDED NOT TO MENTION THE ROLE OF ALCOHOL IN VEHICULAR ACCIDENTS, EVEN THOUGH MOST ACCIDENTS WERE, ARE CAUSED BY IMPAIRED, DRUNK DRIVING AND NOT SPEEDING
    .
    .
    3: THEY TENDED NOT TO SAY THAT MANY PEOPLE DIE IN HOSPTIALS STILL BECAUSE OF MEDICAL ERRORS, NEGLECTS, AND HOSPITAL AQUIRED SICKNESSS.
     .

    According to the Lifesaving Society of Canada, nearly 500 people die every year in water-related accidents, but still thousands die every year due to a hospital acquired sickness, medical personnel errors, medical indifference or negligence….. much more than all those persons who die of car accidents as well.

      .

    Now in 2007 about 3000 persons in Canada had died to road accident deaths, about 1/3 of how many persons had now even died due to a hospital acquired infection and  where about 225,000 Canadian patients a year suffer from hospital-acquired infections.

      .

    When the Architects had designed to save money hospitals and old age homes with shared bathrooms did they also now consider the number of shared infections which would kill people next as well? Now what about those bad, uncaring medical  administrators, ministers who do not care about how many patients still now got killed,  abused, all they seem to care about is that things run continually, and their employees are happy!

    .

    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..

    .

    Also rotavirus, norovirus, gastritis, gastroenteritis, C-DIFFICILE, ARE ALL VERY QUICKLY SPREAD BUT NOT SO EASILY CURED and what many media fail to report is that both doctors and nurses themselves are too often the biggest carriers.

    .

    AND SPEEDING IS NOT THE CAUSE OF MAIN ACCIDENTS, OR ROAD DEATHS NOW TOO.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/

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

     
    FOR TOO MANY DOCTORS 300,000 $ PER YEAR IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THE.. WHAT GREED.
    .
     
     
    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 that  I hate doctors and nurses, so well let me make it very clear I do rightfully hate each of the  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.. Whereis the real McGll Dr House when you need him? Just a TV fiction still!
    The parents Lisa Guerin and Jonathan Hope  of a 16-month-old girl who died  are guilty of failing to provide the necessities of life, a judge ruled The two were ordered to stay in custody until March 19, 2010 when a date will be set for sentencing. This also applies to all bad doctors and nurses, Health ministers and administrators  now too  who fail to adequately look after any sick patient.
     .
     
    I recommend reading this   before something happens to your health and you end up in the hospital. I read somewhere that almost half of us will have an inpatient stay in the hospital prior to the end of our lives. I don’t think we can ever be too prepared for something that can have such an impact on our lives, or the life of someone that we love.
    Rich doctors Canada wide seem to like to take long religious holidays, most of them clearly have no religion  too,  especially at Christmas time.  As a result there is a drastic hospital Clinic, Emergency room  services  reduction and even closures in some part of the country because  there is no doctor to fill the shift. 
    .
    SUMMERSIDE  PEI – Temporary acute care bed closures will take place. The Department of Health has planned some temporary bed closures in hospitals across the Island as part of an annual Doctors slowdown during the holiday season. Emergency services, including emergency surgical services and day surgeries, will remain fully operational during the holiday season. Elective surgical services will be reduced for a two-week period at both Prince County and Queen Elizabeth Hospitals.  
    .
    Any Doctors also who are putting patients in danger,  have a lack of accountability , are over-billing for work is always still inacceptable too. 
     . 
     Some hospital departments are well runned and others are not, the quaility of service it varies serioulsy depending on the departmental manager as well. 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.. Now after being a half a century in Canadian Hospitals I thought I saw it all.. Until I sat this week visiting a person in a serious sick, troubled persons ward at the Pointe Claire, West island Hospital .. and for the first time I also had no complaints yet… but praise for I really could not believe what I saw, the real extra effort that the medical, support staff gave to all the patients, some of them very elderly too. Now if all Hospital departments were like this.. it would be heavenly. Some Hospital departments are run like the pits of hell still too. Next a week later I found out the whole truth at the LGH  How  they do provide a mimimum of doctors, nurses services .. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/hospital-deaths-account-for-half-of-deaths-annually/
     .
    You’ve read the headlines, the ones that end in disbelief, disgust.  Wall Streeters who brought us the economic meltdown through their own greed are next rewarded with multi-billion dollar bailouts rich enough to float a mid-sized country . Meanwhile also many of  the fat cats get fatter on the teats of the taxpayers, not a few of  them too. Now we also find out some of the windfall wizards used their aid to pay off creditors while ensuring the bonus gravy train was stoked and leaving the station and some of the top the executives gave themselves big raises, bonuses  for it still. Most of the money from many non profit institutions, corporations, never gets to help others. Even many medical Doctors, are selfish, self serving. We hear about big corporations still gouging the citizens with their high, unreasonable  prices too. We again hear about big corruptions , thefts still going on by our civil and public servants, at the federal, provincial and municipal levels in Canada  and you often now do wonder why it still goes on? The answer is very simple, for you have not cried, demanded justice loud enough for many to hear. Do so now too. Contact now the news editors, governments , police today. Even again.    
     .
     Hospitals now wrongfully, immorally using their resources, personnel to recommend private clinics run by greedy, selfish, self centered, charge card happy  doctors is unacceptably wrong and put a stop to it now, today.
    .
    Fire their bad medical instructors for a start too.. Money hungry, greedy, self centered doctors are all unacceptable still too. The British saw next the end of their World wide British empire when they had stopped providing Medicare to India.. Now who real cares about the patient’s good welfare if not the government, or the Hospitals or  or the charge happy doctors? What me alone? and not our Health Ministers still?
     .
    Canada’s health care in theory but not in practice is supposedly available to all Canadians  of all ages, all nationalities, Canada wide, from sea to sea, needless to say Health care in Canada is not universal and it depends often on   the rich and influential persons, sports celebrities  getting  better services, and depends on local provincial governments, the local institutions, hospitals offering it, and also on the size of the city, populations. Big cities tend to have more expertise that still are not available to all..
     .
    It is often a mere waste of time going to a mere local, family doctor if you have a serious illness, he likely would not diagnose it anyway, especially since he does not have the medical knowledge, expertise, access to the proper medical tests. The best place to go to is the emergency clinic at a hospital, but they too will try to discourage you by insuring long patients waiting lines… cause no one wants still  to work too hard, not the hospital administrators, ombudsmen, support personnel.. but they all still want to falsely keep their knobs, jobs and their pay it seems.
     .
    Local Doctors and Hospital seem to to have an absolute minimal supervision, management, and certainly are not cost effective, and then you wonder why some stupid provincial government that is pouring money into pails full of holes complains the cost  of Medicare is going up significantly. They can blame their own lack of supervision , even doctors, nurses, hospitals, civil and public servants, politicians, police, governments, others all still need to be monitored, supervised in reality
    .

    A poorly managed Hospital and personnel is still always rightfully unacceptable even if it is McGill.

    .

     I have often been wondering why the Montreal McGill Hospitals tend to provide the basic , or pretentious services, it is cause the real doctors, professionals, self serving, greedy,  money hungry doctors  now are trying to make a buck in the private sector and are generally not available to all, even though Canada supposedly only has a fully public accessible Medicare system, and the Hospital directors who generally are doctors too go along with this too.. conflicting self interest
    .

     I also here really could not help but notice that the aspiring, ambitious doctors in training work much harder over those who have graduated and who now tend to sit back on their laurels. 

    .

    I spent today over half of day at my the McGill  RVH clinic just to get my medical   test and a medical  consultations, from 8:30 am to 2: pm. During this process I sat for 3 hours at the  departmental clinic reception waiting  3 hours for my one  test. The reception had now received many phone calls for many a Doctor ‘s appointment, and they next were all generally told the waiting period was 4 months at least, till mid April, but if they now next  paid 30 dollars extra they can see the same  doctors now, two of them  at their  private clinic, likely within two weeks. The doctors only attend the Hospital clinic twice a month  as well. Meanwhile they apparently do have a personal doctors office, and a secretary and a private examination room at the hospital all paid by the citizens,  This is what Medicare has unacceptable become. A two tiered health care system.
    .
     
    It is an undeniable, unacceptable  fact that some people who cannot afford extra billing do without medical care, I myself now here  saw a few people walk away from the reception appointment desk when they were told about extra billing fees. It is a perversity that the Doctors and dentists education is mostly covered by tax payers, and generous donors and yet the Doctors next try gouging us all for more money, the McGill Doctors especially.
    .
     
    So does the Quebec and federal health Ministers still want me to write all this up to the Hospital ombudsman, etc.,  while they still  gets paid for doing nothing here too?
    .
     
    .
    The governments have basically passed down the responsibility of the management of the health care systems to the individual hospitals, who basically have no  interest in seeing, managing medical  costs reductions, or improving their medical performances, rather it is to their sole interest that the gravy train flows abundantly, after all more patients, means more money for Hospital administrators, ombudsmen doctors and nurses and more job guarantees for them too.a-2 Next absurdly the government asked that I manage the health care system personally and I should file a complain with each doctor, Hospital  that I am dissatisfied with, and even supplied me the name and address of their responsible boards. 
    .

    Me doing now freely all of the governments work with our Ministers, civil and public servants get paid, rather for stealing the taxpayer’s money.b-1 Firstly I have said many times already  that anyone going to a charge happy private  Medical doctor when you are seriously ill is a waste of them, for generally as I have often experiences now as well he or she  are not adequately  qualified nor does he have the necessity equipment to diagnose quickly and accurately  the problem never mind deal quickly  next with it’s solution.

    If you are seriously ill you still do have to go to a Hospital, triage, the emergency department.. cause they have all the medical equipment there need for the serious testing’s.

    b-2 Some times they there can help you at the triage, emergency and some times not. Mind you you are not insured of immediate success here cause you are put often on a waiting list even often next at least 6 months or more.

    .

    I have also been waiting one year to see a new, knee specialist at the McGill Montreal General Hospital already.

    .
    Now I have BEEN TO SEVEN  hospitals in the last 20 years I have also directly now  already directly dealt with 3 Montreal Hospital ombudsmen already because of  their poor medical delivery services, and the bigger the Hospital the less they do even  care about your complaint, and the less likely you or I will even get it dealt with too
    .
    No Hospital here on it’s own now had provided adequate follow up, medical services to me, rather I was forced to complain about the poor services, and only in one hospital did the complaint help. Now if I should continue to do the health Minister’s job should I also not get his pay now too?
    .

    Friday evening the RVH ombudsman finally returns my call and  now passed my file to someone else.. I will see what the results next are here too.

    .

    An  administrative doctor from McGill next had called me and  had falsely tried to justify the RVH receptionist  sending almost all of the patients to see the very same doctors at a private clinic where they will be charged more for the same service by saying all Hospital are overcrowded.. he must have thought I was really stupid.. for I have been employed as an engineering contract manager and if the fabrication shop gave the same false excuses for their late product deliveries in reality they next went out of business, because rightfully in the private sector clients did not accept such lame excuses. The same clearly stupid, pretentious Doctor had asked if my problem that I  have now had for over 6 months had cured itself since last week when I saw the RVH doctor? Hoping naively he would not have to work? or just dumb? If miracles mow here were so common why would we need the doctors  ehh?Nice to be in the public service where you can take it easy and blame another department for your own lack of real, viable productivity. And now how stupid do they really think we are? Fire rightfully very bad persons that I have dealt with so far too here. MEANWHILE I AM STILL WAITING HERE FOR POSTIVE RESULTS TOO.

    .

    I have contacted now 3  separate useless McGill Hospital  Ombudsman as suggested by the Quebec Government, under the direction of the Quebec premier’s office too.. and I got now 2 useless results  so far:
     
    – I phoned the Montreal General  Hospital  Ombudsman to complain about waiting over one year to see a knee specialist. and the person claiming to be the Ombudsman said that one to two years wait was acceptable, normal, and I said what were they doing about it cause it was rightfully not acceptable for me. She next told me she was not the Ombudsman but she would pass me to the Ombudsman, so I immediately by phone talked to the real Ombudsman next  and I told her the same thing and I wanted to know what they were doing about it.. she said a Hospital committee, Board of directors  was disusing the issue with the Quebec government on being able to hire more staff.. I said I wanted specific actions here. She said she would main le a complaint form.  I told here my complain was very simple, one line, posted on the internet for the whole world to read, I have been waiting over one year to see see a knee specialist.. she was not interested in what was posted on the net, she started to get personal and lied that I was making a persona threat against her, I told her she was a liar, distorter who had failed to deal with my complaint firstly still.. I told her my additional complaint was many McGill Medical doctors are pretenders, the pretend they will look after you but fail to do this adequately based on my real experience with 4 McGill Hospitals to date. I get better service with other University’s  Doctors. She suggested I go to another Hospital and I told her rightfully asked her to deal with my complaint instead, and she said good bye. I rightfully want more that just a complaint form being done here. I told her I would follow this up with the Quebec government, news media too. I got useless response like this directly from provincial cabinet ministers many many years ago now and I never accepted it rightfully so why would I accept such poor services, poor actions here too? The Quebec government in writing had said to me this was all the Hospital fault, and the Hospital says it the Quebec’s governments fault, and I get caught in the meddle.. unacceptable.
     .
    – I also recently had phoned the Royal Victoria Hospital  Ombudsman to complain about   :  Why secretaries were using McGill Hospital time and resources to recommend private clinics
      
     .
    The McGill Ombudsmen, related McGill  Doctors response was, is like musical chairs, every time you talk to someone you now do get a different lie, spin, distortion.. The RVH Ombudsman who had finally  phoned me and said she was going to have another doctor do the follow up.   Musical chairs, or buck passing medical services? THE RVH ombudsman here so far was the best that I have dealt with. I have deal with 2 other McGill Hopsital Ombudsman too.
     .
    Now I have been wasting my time, even given the medical run around by 2 useless McGill Ophthalmologists from the McGill Lachine Hospital and the Royal Victoria Hospital over one year now about my swollen eye problem, and I had contacted the RVH Ombudsman about it now too many times.. their useless buck passing reply was finally the problem is mine, Not happy with McGill doctors go elsewhere,  the problem is mine and and not theirs and there is nothing they can do about it now for I am on my own. RVH useless Dr Morin . But well there is something I can do about it.. I can post what McGill doctors, hospitals, ombudsman  and our Health Ministers are really like often on the net for the whole world to read often too.
     .
     My McGill  Royal Victoria Hospital  DR OH Ophthalmologist has been a personal gem.. she has gone out of the way to find out why my eyes are swollen, with a complete eyes exam every 3 months.. she had helped my father but here she could  not deal with my solution.
     .
      
    In Montreal I have been to the English and French Hospitals and I can certainly say that the McGill run Hospitals provide some of the worst nursing, Doctor services as well.. the RVH, JGH, Lachine Hospital, and  Lakeshore General hospital included.. One rotten apple spoils the whole basket.. deal with it..  In contrast in a Quebec French hospitals where the doctors are also from the University of Montreal, the doctors are persistent and will continue to assist to determine my problem.. unlike McGill. In the old days they had at least now made a pretence to aid you when you made a complaint. Now these days they seem in no hurry to get back to you, or they  misfile the complaint, buck pass it, or just deny it altogether at the McGill Hospitals mostly it seems.. The Unacceptable Useless RVH Dr Morin too.  It seems that McGill University Doctors take on a attitude that it is condescending for them to serve us any of us, we all should be subservient and really should be grateful that they have agreed to help us. The Governor General Michaelle Jean delivers speech criticizing rampant materialism  has delivered a speech critical of unrestrained market forces in a speech at McGill University. Jean told an audience in Montreal  that life  shouldn’t simply be about making money, but about helping people.  The Governor General says market forces are extremely influential, and can risk drowning out such values as the common good. ” “We are living in a world in which spaces for critical debate, reflection and civic action are increasingly being assailed by the alluring sirens of fleeting gratification and cultural conformity,” she said. “More and more, impersonal market forces are influencing public life, while notions of the common good and altruistic action are being challenged by an ethic of ‘everyone for himself or for his clan.’  by ” saying no to a world in which our obsession with profit makes us turn a blind eye to suffering” and where “prosperity is detrimental to our environment,” Jean said.
     .
    A report released 10/26/09 by Thomson Reuters, parent company of the Reuters news service, stated that the current U.S. health system wastes  in a year, one-third of the current healthcare expenditure. The report cites the following as sources of wasteful spending:
    • Overuse of antibiotics and lab tests to protect against malpractice lawsuits (Pennsylvania State University estimates that as much as 91 percent of our nation’s healthcare expenditures are related to defensive medicine);
    • Signifcant Fraud  in Medicare claims  ;
    • Administrative inefficiency and redundant paperwork;
    • Medical mistakes;
    • Preventable conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes

    .

    McGill University, one of the top ranking medical school in North American attracts many American students and competes with top American universities. The numbers of Americans enrolling in Canadian colleges has risen around 90 percent over the past four years.  But how many American students want to attend a medical University that wrongfully, and clearly abuses the local citizens of Montreal Canada?  cause these clearly selfish self centered little local doctors cannot see the whole picture, how their poor actions, inactions affect the health care of many now, next. McGill is making a fortune on fees for it’s out of town medical students  it seems and uses them in their hospitals to a point that the rest of the medical staff, resources cannot help the local people of Montreal now adequately too.

    .

    There are bad and good doctors now too. A Toronto doctor is facing a disciplinary hearing over allegations he approved special meal allowances for people on welfare and disability programs according to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.  Dr. Roland Wong,  said he continues to approve applications for the special diet but only if he believes patients have an underlying medical condition that qualifies them for the financial supplement.  “Today, I signed maybe five, four,” he said. “Sometimes more, depends.”  He accused the auditor general of having a very “slanted view” of the program, and suggested he should be looking instead at the woefully inadequate support payments paid to people in need.  Wong said he wasn’t overly concerned about the disciplinary hearing because it was based on a complaint laid against him by a municipal councillor.  “This is a case of politicians against a physician, not the patient against the physician,” he said.  The Special Diet Allowance provides up to $250 per month to a person on social assistance who requires special foods for such conditions as diabetes.  Councillor Doug Holyday said  . “This can’t go on.”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/torsun/091209/canada/doc_faces_probe_over_dietary_payouts 
    .
     
    Quebec and other provinces have no such adequate program and why?
    .
     
    Now  about doctors, Staff being allowed to recommend private clinics, how immoral are they, this is a clear conflict of interest, and a bad  lack of incentetive to improve the Hospital services.

    .

     Alberta’s health care has been poorly managed, by health Ministers and Premiers too. Bad manager, Ex Premier of Alberta Ralph Klein gave in and gave a generous pay raise to the doctors, and this is what predictably  happened next! Ralph got what he deserved, he got booted out.
     .
    I had also had helped to fire a pretentious previous Albertan health Minister Gary Marr who used outside consultants to do his work that he was paid for doing.. Another Albertan Con artist
     . 
    A presentation made by Alberta Health Services in October suggests the province’s health-care deficit could grow by as much as $1 billion next year. In an online document called “The Great Alberta Experiment: First Hundred Days,” three top representatives from Alberta Health Services outlined how the province will face an additional deficit of $500 million to $1 billion in 2010-11 before any cost-cutting measures are taken into account.Yet Alberta Health Services will actually run out of cash in February 2010 before the province releases its spring budget, according to the document presented to the HealthCare Leaders’ Association of B.C. http://www.vancouversun.com/health/Health+system+quickly+going+broke/2288601/story.html
     .
    Health Minister Ron Liepert must resign his cabinet post. He has lost the confidence of Albertans with his botched handling of the H1N1 vaccine program. The buck ultimately stops with Liepert, who sent Albertans grievously mixed messages, and deflected the blame for the long lineups and this week’s clinic closures, while backtracking and flip-flopping on policy statements. He even pointed an accusing finger at the media for chronicling the confusion he is ultimately responsible for. http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/editorials/Health+minister+must+resign/2174525/story.html
     .
    Crooks, con men, pretenders, imposters, the bad persons  like to pretend, delude themselves  that no one reads my blogs find out  that when some others are made aware of the facts they do act upon it appropriately too,  as many found out next the hard way. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest still too
     https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/08/unacceptable-medical-care/
      .
    This also offers a Canadian window into the state’s overwrought preoccupation with making money at all costs, disregarding the citizens concerns too. Sadly Like too many political parties it seems the citizens mainly do not count, their views or needs, desires. they only count on election days. I was once talking to deputy Minister Ken Kowalski of Alberta about this as to why and he replied cause in Alberta they do not pay the taxes. But rather the real reason is the too often lack of respect for the all of citizens still by our leaders, civil and public servants most political parties Canada wide.. Police, RCMP’s unacceptable, poor attitudes towards most of the citizens now as well
     .
    Poorly managed, badly scheduled,  self centered employees too, while one person  takes a coffee break, the rest of the staff and the patients are all delayed.. Doctors tend to be poor managers. In addition to not understanding history, the real fact that bad history repeats itself too,  they often falsely think they have the authority to do anything they please, and no one will see  it, or reap any negative consequences, themselves included. But you are reading about their uancceptable sins already.   
     .
    Doctors, Nurses, medical support staff  are human, they too sometimes try to get by with a minimal amount of personal effort, and so as result patients do not always get their proper medical care. A good rule is never to go to a hospital alone, doctors are  afraid of loud mouthed witnesses who can cause them to be sued for mal  practice and cause their mal practice insurance rates to go up significantly..
     .
    The pretentious hospital chaplains.. While visiting my father in the hospital In one week I next  saw three fly by church Priests come to visits the sick patients in the hospitals, and they  spend a minute or two with them,  and they really, basically did not much good to any of the patients they had visited. One of these clearly visibly useless  priests visiting a sick patient did not even recognize another member of his own congregation in the same room, and of course he did not even know his name. How the church has become an impersonalized show, merely a financial business it seems today.  
     .
     Now the Doctors are still often asked to cure sick person  patients symptoms  whose original cause they are basically unaware off. A decent, good, chaplain can maybe help in this matter by first even  taking the time to know, listen, hear the patient’s original concerns. 
     .
    A very elderly patient  arrived in the Hospital emergency, his first visit to a hospital as well, he now could not walk on one leg cause of the extremely severe pain and so he was hospitalized. While in the hospital he next was visited by 5 different doctors and he now was even given separately 5 different diagnostics as to  what he may have. This is common I have experienced  the same thing myself before too. Doctors tend to relate mainly to heir own experience,  expertise it seems mostly still and  so basically no doctor had told him what they would do next, they decided safely  they would let time and more reviews take it’s course. This all had seemed to have escalated the patient’s pains and concerns.  Next the same patient now developed severe constipation, headaches, even more pain ,dehydration, severe leg cramps  from now lying in a bed all of the week.  I next had listened and talked to the patient for a few days,  and I told him I could see he was also in  stress, personal anxiety.  The patient  next  had admitted that he was in stress when he had been first unable to walk, because at Christmas time unexpectedly his wife was sent to an convalescent home as she had developed the irreversible Alzheimer disease, and now he had next never been alone and  he never had cooked for himself before this. Now he also as a RESULT OF HIS LEG  PAIN he faced himself an uncertain future, possible operation, and transfer to an old age home or convalescent home. After much listening I told him he had now firstly had likely hurt, strained  his back, due to his wife’s unbeneficial stress, which in turn now now affected his leg.  I FIRST HAD SUGGESTED HE TALK WITH HIS DOCTOR AND GET A BACK PAIN MUSCLE RELAXANT TOO  but NEXT  naturally he refused to believe me. I ALSO NEXT HAD suggested he try out a chiropractor  but  he never had gone to one before. I told him the medical doctors approach would achieve the same results but IT would likely take much longer time using pills. But now even none of the hospital pain killers were now even  helping him at all including morphine because the root causes are not being addressed. Few doctors or nurses will tell a patient directly that t  his sickness is in his own  head, or his own doing now too.  The patient  next called his son  by phone, and his son next had agreed to take him in, after he was released from the hospital. His son next also had agreed with me,  that  the father should next go to a chiropractor doctor, that his problem was likely escalated by the unexpected stress he found himself in? INCIDENTLY NOT EATING THE PROPER FOODS CAN LEAD TO VITAMIN B12 DEFFECIENCY AND HELP TO CAUSE BACK PAINS TOO.. SEVERE CRAMPS ARE ALSO OFTEN CAUSED BY NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER DAILY
     .
    For any condition or ailment   that you’re still dealing with, write down and be prepared to tell the doctor now also  the following:

    What caused this condition or ailment for after all an experienced Doctor should be knowledgeable?

    • When was it first diagnosed?
    • How is he now treating it?
    • Has it gotten better or worse?
    • When did the patient  first begin to noticeably improve or worsen?
    • What medication makes it better?
    • What medication makes it worse?
    • What is the Doctor doing now about it?
    • what medication is now  being given ?
    • what tests have been done,?
    •  what were the results of the test?
     .
    All pharmacists do note –  Why do we pay so much for drugs? Those price gouging, pretentious pharmacies crying wolf, crying that they are not getting enough profit.. and what a ridiculous approach. When you are a senior like me who has learned that if you take your medicine you will next live longer, and who has also learned that in real life we cannot hope to live adequately without medicine and doctors, I also have had plenty of time to shop in too many drug stores too. I thus  have undeniably have noticed the serious, big price differences for the same items in tpp many stores. And I know that my local pharmacy has often a 700 percent price mark up on many of  their goods .. yes kinda of  greedy..  I heard the owner recently  of a pharmacy bragging that he was buying medical accessories for 7 dollars and selling them from 70 dollars in his store.
