A person was lying in a convalescent home for months and most of the nurses still did not know what his basic sickness was, for they did not care, they did not take an interest, or bother to talk to him, to get to know him, they were too busy to do that but when you start asking the nurse a question about her personal life, such as where she lives, etc.,, she will start to talk to you about it for hours on the job now too..
Here is what I find amazing, I live in one of the largest cities in Canada and in the local hospitals I still rarely can find, and talk to a really competent dietician, dermatologist, or pharmacist. TOO MANY GENERAL PRACTITIONERS DOCTORS ARE NOT COMPETENT DRUG DOCTORS, OR DOCTORS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE. Convalescent homes tend daily now to dispose loads of pills to their seniors and yet they tend to not have an adequate pharmacist or doctor on their staff to check the pills side effect, as I have recently even found out firsthand too.
I am the health guardian of my 87 year old father who is also a ward of the province of Quebec, for my father has an incurable disease. My father requires also pain Killers every 4 hours as prescribed by the good Geriatric doctor Rois of the Verdun Hospital. Now it would have been nice if he got them.I generally have been with my father as his bedside at least 8 hours per day, in the Convalescent homes and hospitals. So I witness firsthand the too often the medical realities, actual doctors and nurses performances now too. My very senior father has an incurable, painful disease and he needs proper pain management in Hospitals, old age homes and rather often he still does not get it. On Sunday my father had been admitted to the Montreal Verdun hospital for 2 reasons.. Difficulty in swallowing and also skin rash that was dramatically spreading on his legs and now 4 days later not one single doctor had addressed the rash, because skin specialists are rare in hospitals these days too… and the family doctors are not competent to deal with the infections which have increased in size even since then .
What has also also upset me is that I have to repeat myself to the doctors and nurse, because when the shift changes the verbal communications is lacking, and because doctors and nurses especially it seems are still poor listeners, so I have to repeat myself to each of the new personal what my father problems and needs are. And yet they all do still seem to for get about it, out of sight often next means out of mind. This problem is escalated cause there seems to be a new nurse every shift instead of having a continuity of the same nurses during the whole week.
What also complicates matters is that my father continually gets 2 separate pain killers, and the too often inadequate nurse generally tends to give out one and forgets the other.
and speaking of pain management … here is what I too have clearly noticed other peoples real pain does not bother too many medical staff cause it is not their own, and so they still do not care to do much about it. Neglecting to provide proper medical care, pain killers to a sick senior is still a prosecutable criminal offence.. So heavenly minded and no earthly good still too. Too many nurses I have encountered are busy playing doctors instead of giving out the pills, if they want to be a doctor go to a medical school for 12 years first.
Since when are medical professionals more ethical over any other professionals? Here is an undeniable fact of life.. crime, corruptions, thefts, bribes too often exist.. in all areas of endeavors, enterprises, businesses too.. but what I have often wondered why there seems to be very few crimes committed in the Medicare fields.. now very few crime, abuse cases are even reported Canada wide, Quebec included.. abuses in an area that has some of the largest costs and too often too little supervisors as well now too.. when I know that even medical doctors have abused their research budgets.. and we had the major ehealth abuses revelations in Ontario too.
Capital Health uncovers $170K ‘discrepancy’ CBC – Nova Scotia’s largest health authority has fired one of its business office employees and called for a police investigation after an internal audit revealed a financial “discrepancy” of nearly $170,000. This is not the first time there have been financial discrepancies in Nova Scotia’s health authorities. In April, a Nova Scotia man pleaded guilty to defrauding three health boards of nearly $400,000. Cary Lee Hollett, 42, will return to court July 21 to be sentenced in that case.
NOW I HAVE HEARD ALL KIND OF REASONS WHY THE BAD EMPLOYEES WERE, ARE SUPPOSEDLY JUSTIFIED IN NOT DOING THEIR WORK PROPERLY BUT SOME HOW THE EXCUSES ALL APPEAR VOID WHEN COMPARED WITH THE OUTPUT OF THE GOOD WORKERS.
