Attention Quebec, Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux Alain Poirier
It is amazing that the Quebec health and social services minister has still to properly act on even one of my many letters to him or especially even my local Lieberal elected member of the Quebec Legislature now too
The union, representing 55,000 nurses across Quebec, has sought a reduction of mandatory overtime hours, and limits on recruiting nurses from private agencies. Some nurses report regular double shifts, especially those with less seniority but anyone who goes into nursing expecting 9-5 hours, week day hours is a fool.. for many people are often sick 24 hours per day, and seven days a week and require permanent nursing care in hospitals and old age homes included.
MY PERSONAL MONTHS OF DIRECT OBSERVATION ABOUT THE MEDICAL WORKERS WHO COMPLAIN THAT TOO MANY ERRORS ARE CAUSED BY THE WORK OVERLOAD ACTUALLY TEND TO MEAN, COMPLAIN ABOUT HAVING TO DO ANY WORK AT ALL, FOR THEY TOO OFTEN DO THINK THEY MERELY SHOULD BE PAID EVEN MORE FOR COMING TO WORK. THESE SAME RATHER UNDENIABLY TOO OFTEN INCOMPETENT, UNQUALIFIED, PRETENTIONS WORKERS , THESE BAD PERSONS STILL SEEM TO HAVE THE ENERGY TO SOCIALIZE WITH THEIR COLLEAGUES, TAKE LONG COFFEE AND LONG BREAKS, TO DO THEIR OWN BUSINESS ON THE SIDE.
These people, the same persons and the bad persons, managers who now hired them too firstly now still are are all career incompatible and they should be clearly encouraged to find work elsewhere, to find work they like to do, such as being on social aid?
The lack of DECENT OUTPUT is too often a false excuse for the whole system’s malaise the mostly bad, pretentious supervisors.
Recently a supervisor went for a month long holiday and the medical workers all stopped working hard, started to play around, started to waste their time as I saw firsthand. That was the bad effect of having no good supervisor in place to to replace him too.
ONE CAN BE SURE THAT WHEN YOU GET A BAD MANAGER THE HOSPITAL OR THE OLD AGE HOME WENT SOON DOWNHILL..
A bad provincial government management, this sorry excuse for a government, plus a bloated, bad executive health authority administration always spells a medical disaster! The lack of experienced medical staff is too often due to the fact that most anyone with the valid experience and qualifications has found a better paying job elsewhere? Replaced now by “Novice staff”? being paid the minimum training wage while the people managing the homes, hospitals are often still taking their long paid vacations too.
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 .
Now this evening Monday June 21, 21010 my father was admitted to the Verdun Hospital for a blood transfusion, since he is anemic. My father has had now three nurses so far looking after him at this emergency ward, the first two nurses were excellent, professional and they did their job. The 3rd one was a bad joke, she was too busy have a good time for 2 hours giggling with her nursing associates in the nursing cubical in front of my father even, where I was there with him all day now too. She missed his 8 pm pain session and when I confronted the nurses present there they had replied she was going to give all his pills at one time. How will she give the oxycodone pain pills all at one time? I suggests that if these bad nurses do not want to work that they rightfully now go on social welfare now ASAP instead.
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.
Realize this also that the present Montreal mayor admits to all that he knew about major city hall corruptions about a decade ago, but till yet has not done anything about it.. and what else and who else now too? Crime does not go away on it’s own. It is no big surprise that Montreal is still full of inadequate, pretentious civil and public servants, tax evaders, liars, thieves, con artists but what has also now not been a surprise is how lazy still the Montreal police themselves are too often are when you report a crime to them. They too do find false reasons not to look into the matter rather too often still.
One of the most common remarks we tend to hear often is that there is always a shortage of money to pay our medical, civil and public servants too but us paying more money to bad workers and their too often bad supervisors who rather should be all fired is still firstly a big unacceptable absurdity of putting more money into money bags full of large holes. And since when do we continue to reward the criminals?
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.
Still mostly pretentious Governments health administrators are still themselves too often ignorant of what it means to work in a hospitals, even about the medical and personnel inadequacies and the staff, patient’s related stresses now too, and what it takes even to eliminate unnecessary waits for all types of medical care in the last many decades too. Provincial governments. Hospitals too are not only too often pretentious but too often still do lie when they claim to be fully equipped to handle readily all medical problems in Montreal too. All provincial governments must “meaningfully address” procedures falling outside the five priority areas of diagnostic imaging, sight restoration, joint replacement, cancer radiology and cardiac care for far too many Canadians still experience long waits for their needed medical care and they often are kept in the dark about the wait they can expect to face. Emergency centers now at Hospitals are geared to check for heart problems and cancer mostly, immediately through blood tests, medical tests but not much else it seems. Hospitals rely on even too often pretentious, incompetent nurses, medical students, interns mostly for the initial screenings it seems rather than on the senior, experienced doctors too. And more more than half of all patients wait longer over medically acceptable times for other non major medical problems as well, even before anyone even starts an acceptable treatment. Major strides are still very much needed to be made overall not just in the five priority health-care areas including a broader range of specialties.
