Report card: Failed- Canada’s hospitals and Health Ministers
November 8, 2008 by thenonconformer
And you did know that many people tend to get more sick around these holidays and often die as well.
Hospitals in Canada are mainly still here for the good care, safety, health of the patients. But this is not happening too often. For example- All the hospitals must exercise “the greatest control over all aspects of the work over all of the staff, doctors, nurses, technicians included . But undeniably in Quebec too too many nursing employees were, are working for private agencies outside the hospital, so a full accountability, control is clearly lacking. Even in Quebec now there still is a growing reliance by hospitals, old age homes, on using private nursing agencies. Bad nurses and bad doctors rarely face any negative personal consequences. The gravy trains have to be discontinued.
The Quebec government itself now for decades is soft on crime and is wrongfully reluctant to punish any of the bad guys cause they would likely have to start also with themselves. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/03/positive-changes-need-to-start-at-the-top/
Which now reminds me can you please tell me specially the statistics per province, and city, as to the actual number of people who had died in 2010 due to a hospital acquired sickness? Specifically
1: Shit disease, C-difficile
2: Gastritis- food poisonings
It seems our Prime ministers, Premiers, politicians care only about the medical care they get.
I could not help but notice and read often the great newspaper articles about heart care tips.. but what about all of those people where these same tips are too late and the mostly pretentious health care is not there now for them.. how does any of this help them but who really cares?
Now face it to get get real health care you have to go to the emergency department of a big hospital and you first have to get the attention of the emergency department, the triage care givers, that is if you can get past those preeminent security guards there, those too often pretentious triage nurses, medical interns who screen all the patients firstly.
But if you still are not dumb to recognize that now hiring 12 nurses or 6 medical interns who get the same pay as one doctor cannot, does not make up, compose even one qualified medical doctor firstly as well you tend to get what you deserve it seems…
Most Nurses have 2 years of training while the real doctors have at least a decade, so they the real doctors do have both a deeper and wider applicable knowledge base too.
In Canada, many people, citizens are needlessly dying because the hospital infection rates continued to rise and all of the Health Ministers should be hung for this now immediately too, for murder, and I have been now saying that rightfully and openly for years now too.. do immediately deal with it. Report Card” Canada’s hospitals and Health Ministers are really not doing enough to fight infections: while the Doctors take big pay cheques still home
The C. difficile nightmare goes on too
“CP Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates continued to rise TORONTO — Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections. But despite that, rates of these infections continued to rise in the years immediately following the outbreaks, a new study reveals. Rates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus – known as MRSA – more than doubled in the period from 1999 to 2005, said the study, which was based on a survey of Canadian hospitals with more 80 or more patient beds. Clostridium difficile infections ( shit disease ) also rose over that period and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus climbed 77 per cent over the period. “Despite the two major communicable diseases – SARS and C. difficile – despite the emphasis by the Canadian Public Safety Institute on safer health care, despite all those things, our institutional approaches to infection control have changed remarkably little,” said Dr. Andrew Simor, head of microbiology at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Simor was not involved in the study. “And the outcomes, as a result, have gone in the wrong direction.” The survey was conducted in 2006 by researchers from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., and was a follow-up to an earlier survey conducted in 1999. Both were funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The results, which will be published in the December issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, showed that while hospitals reported an increase in staff devoted to infection control, increasing numbers of patients fell prey to hospital-acquired infections. There were 5.2 cases of MRSA per 1,000 hospital admissions in 2005, up from two per 1,000 in 1999. There was also an upward trend in C. difficile infections, and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with VRE soared. “We have to roll up our sleeves,” said lead author Dr. Dick Zoutman, head of infection control at Kingston General Hospital. But while the numbers don’t look good, the director of infectious disease prevention and control with Ontario’s public health agency raised a couple of important caveats. Dr. Michael Gardam suggested hiring new infection control staff is only one step in improving a hospital’s infection control performance. Real improvement requires a commitment and effort from all those involved in patient care in an institution, he said – and that takes time. “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Gardam said. “You need to have more infection control practitioners. And you need to bring about culture change. And just doing the resources side of things I don’t believe will actually get you there.” Gardam also suggested the numbers might have been worse but for the injection of resources that followed the 2003 SARS outbreak and the C. difficile crisis, which first came to light in 2004. “Probably we are having an impact, we are slowing the increase,” said Gardam, who was not involved in the study. “But we’re not actually achieving a real steady state and we’re not actually seeing a decrease.” That’s especially worrying given the current state of the economy, said both Zoutman and Simor, who noted that infection control efforts are an easy target when hospitals are trying to cut costs. “I’m concerned now that it’s more challenging economic times … that we don’t lose (sight of) this,” said Zoutman. “Because it’s a false economy. It’s penny wise, pound foolish.” “
More causes of health problems. Melamine is sometimes illegally added to food products in order to increase the apparent protein content. Manufacturers knowingly and intentionally mix Melamine, which has some rather nasty ingredients, in our milk. To mix this product, they needed the use of formaldehyde, which is a very toxic and nasty ingredient in itself. Where has the integrity of our products gone? It seems like in the venture of profit many companies will trick and deceive customers into believing whatever they are ingesting is good for them. One important matter though is that, it is not only China who is doing such acts. Many companies everywhere are also putting toxic ingredients in our food and beverages without exactly telling us about it. http://augustafreepress.com/2008/10/13/haresh-daswani-watching-what-you-eat/
We trust the medical tests being done, but how effective are they, and what they have a 50 percent error rate still, even the blood tests or xrays and they all do have to be often redone, at least 3 times or replaced with another more valid medical test? or what you did not know this too?
Secondly most of the initial doctor prescribed medical test for potentially serious heart problems are really pretentious, cheap, ineffective, basically all useless, and are mostly now used because the real valid medical tests such as the Echocardiogram are mostly unavailable and too costly to be used immediatley too, for most people who reallly do need them.
“Some noninvasive Heart tests, and not all of them are fully effective even.. most tests still do require professional diagnostic experiences solely by quailfied cardiologists.
- Resting electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
- Signal-averaged electrocardiogram (SAECG)
- Chest X-ray
- Holter monitor (ambulatory electrocardiogram)
- Exercise stress test
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA
The echocardiogram is a test in which ultrasound is used to examine the heart. The equipment is far superior to that used by fishermen. In addition to providing single-dimension images, known as M-mode echo that allows accurate measurement of the heart chambers, the echocardiogram also offers far more sophisticated and advanced imaging. The first test that should be done for most people with potential heart problems often seems rather firstly reserved for the pregnant mothers rather still too.” http://www.heartsite.com/html/echocardiogram.html
Based on that above facts alone a triage Medical doctor said today to me that he would love to hire me to help out in his emergency clinic, since few people do now even have that essential knowledge of the causes of medical heart problems grasp, and what about you? Or are you another one of those people who will let most of the really sick and needy heart patients die next needlessly too by doing nothing good about it too?
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 now too who fail to adequately look after any sick patient.
Here is some more abuse details I rightfully do not accept at all not even quietly now too
