The first night my husband suffered a severe reaction to the Atavan needing to be strapped down from head to foot. On the morning, he called me, terrified. He as ADD and we have Dr. Barbara Fisher, of Detroit, neuropsychologist as our doctor because she is doing brain research. I called her and she immediately called St. Paul's and could not reach the doctor, but she talked to my husband and took his clinical state. She reported to the drug company at their request, and they in turn reported to Ottawa and asked permission to speak with Dr. Ubhi.
Dr. Ubhi did not return Dr. Fisher's call from Detroit when Don was in hospital, where she wanted to advise him of Don's neuro findings and the seriousness of this medication for him. Nor would Traci Laycock, social worker, Dr. Joel Yelland speak with her or let her come to Saskatoon to assess my husband's neuro condition after the stroke threatening to have her arrested by the lawyers and the College of Physicians and Surgeons. Thus he has been denied in rehabilitation a crucial examination to his possible rehabilitation. Something is wrong in Canada when they do not have doctors with this expertise, but deny the patient access to those who do. This should be a criminal offence.
He then discharged my husband from hospital much more ill than when he went in. I sent him back to hospital the next day where he was again discharged in the afternoon supposedly being stabilized, but obviously very ill on return home.
I contacted Michelle Lange, social worker at St. Paul's who advised that I send him back in ambulance if he deteriorated more and she would be a prompter on her computer to followup.
Home care came and I and would wash his stomach once a week and Physio gave him a d little tin walker. I requested a nurse with stethoscop and blood pressure monitor. Request denied.
I called a private oxygen tech who said intake was 94 but when he walked him down the hall - his heart rate dropped way below 50 and hefelt there was a serious heart problem.
I had been without sleept for some 4 days, and when he went to rest I dropped off to sleep. Sometime between 2am and 6am he had a massive stroke and heart attach and we found him about 6a collagpsed paralysed beside the bed.
My granddaughter, who suffers post traumatic stress disorder found him beside the bed and lifted him up until ambulance came has been retraumatized and is in danger a total breakdown, having difficulty concentrating and studying.
I am disabled with multiple sclerosis, legally blind with macular degeneration from an adverse drug reaction, cataracts waiting to be operated on, sic sini syndrome with bradychardia and tachycardia and a pacemaker that has caused infection upon infection since installed, blistering, fungi, and inflamation, to say nothing of the pain in the left shoulder - my heart is between 120 and 180 all the time and only in resting position is there any relief for six years. Doctors will do nothing as you see from the thousands of other victims on Pacemaker Club. It is a racket too.
Even though I did not give permission for the Atavan, they could do nothing to help him at Royal University Hospital without my leaving my traumatized granddaughter and signing - This has to change - no contra medication with signature either, or else help immediately when they can. It cannot be both ways. Dr. Voll thankfully agreed to come with a friend to my house and get the signature, but it still delayed my husband getting help through that time.
Next they called for a "do not resusitate" permission, again to put the responsibility on me for a condition doctors had induced by their deliberate treatment - because the dangers of this drug is well-known for some time and class actions are in progress against it. Enough already, stop administering it. I am told by a doctor he will continue until someone in authority tell him to stop. That authorit is the Saskatoon Health Region and they have met their responsibility in monitoring and ensuring the patients are not endangered by this behaviour on the part of the doctors.
Next they wanted permission to put a pacemaker in - and knowing the tens of thousands now experiencing difficulty like myself, and that this Health Region does not supervise and see we get good follow up treatment for the problems with it, I was very reluctant to do so, and my husband was paralysed on the right side and could not talk - so I could no discuss it with him
Knowing that I am mult-handicapped, I was summoned to the hospital for 8 am to meet the doctor - I had someone come and help me and got a wheelchair for me - because our hospitals are huge monstrosities of show and very unfriendly to the patient, long accesses to walk through, etc. When I arrived there I was told that the doctor couldn't meet with me because he was a doctor and didn't know when he would get back and I was to wait.
I waited until past ten and my back began to compress very badly and I had to leave alone because my attendant could not wait.
I had to get home alone, couldn't access the apartment building lock and fell, hurting my hip. A neighbour finally helped me in and as I lay waiting for a doctor to come seeme, the telephone started ringing with individual named Madison I think phoning and phoning and phoning saying I had to do this, that and the other thing and I was in so much pain and so sick - you know we have a system in Saskatoon Health where the invalid must look after the invalid and all the others in professional garb just have a good - all of the privileges and none of the responsibility for the patient or the professional's own actions.
My husband saw all the other patients come and leave and heard them talking about not rehabilitating him - just send to a nursing home to warehouse and terminate although Dr. Voll had said it would be three months in a nursing home and then city hospital. They seemed to not understand that though he could not talk - he could hear. I promised him I would search North America over for a place to help him get better.
They heard that and told me it a Massive stroke-and they would tell me my options. I told there was only one - that he come home because I had seen him try to communicate with a nurse and she had simply flipped and walked away in disgust and his face fell and he sobbled in humiliation because he could not talk.
The speach therapist said he didn't time to bother with my husband and the nurses were busy and didn't have time either. My resonse all the more reason he should come home. I had done some research and found in British Columbia a 90 year old lady had a massive stroke and heart attack and had rehabilitation for two and one half years and was doing fine now at 97 - but getting around in a wheel chair - and Saskatchewan cannot do 72? As well the rehabilitation that is offered here is only three months which is nothing compared to what is needed and available in other provinces. It is a human disgrace.
I was told doctors had been over from Parkridge and would not take him. That was fine because that is not where he should be going in his very weak state after the two adverse reactions and the subsequent stroke - Dr. Helmer stated he was optimistic about Don's recovery - that there was a nine month period for the mind to heal, and the mind is the first most important rather than the physical - and then the windown closes, and those therapies were at Sherbrooke.
However, without being advised or notified, there was a piece of paper pinned to his bed the next day saying "we're going to Parkridge." I was told you can go if you want but not until the afternoon - you dont have to go if you don want." I didnt understand the meaning of that then, I do now. Parkridge is aboot camp like rehabilitation for stronger patients and was totally contra indicated for my husband in his waakened condition. The nurses readily said if he can't keep up he shouldn't be here. I agree but could not get him moved to Sherbrooke where the therapies were that he needed.
At Parkridge I was met by Traci Laycock, social worker who told me I had to sign papers I did not want to sign but she said it was routine and I must. This was just one of many times that she and an individual named Jewel intimidated, coerced, harrassed and bullied me. The are just horrible individuals. They would tell me one thing and then the nursing staff would say no you cant have that done - its just not practical and my husband suffered terribily through this conflict between what social worker, nursing staff and food services said.
I got a call one day from Traci saying I had to come in and control my husband because none of the staff could work with him. I went rushing in to find he had collapsed on the floor, had great bruises beneath his eye, and heart racing out of control - his breathing labored and weak. We waited hours for the doctor to appear and then his remarks to me were only "I see in the history you have a do not resusitate order - that was from another admission and had nothing to do with this.
My husband continued passing out - many times and falling over until finally they took him to the pacemaker clinic and found that the medicine being given made his heart run ten times faster. There still is something wrong but we have not chance of finding out because we are not allowed to have our own doctors in the NDP staffed nursing homes in Saskatchewan. Remembers that when it comes to voting - auschwitz. Complete Charter of Rights Denied under NDP.
Next we saw and heard he was sleeping 24/24 except for a few minutes when his eyes would open in a very glazed manner and he would try to eat something. He failed so badly from when he entered this centre, that on Thanksgiving day we took him out for dinner and he always wore a suit, the only one that would fit and it was large, was one from 1980. They kept him so drugged on Respirdol that he couldnt eat, so they saved on food, his bottom was not broken open but red and sore from bacteria from a dirty catheter - drugged you cant caomplain about that either.
This drug is given to patients to warehouse them to termination and research has shown it leads to death, and if you take them off it - itleads to death. What are they doing to our loved ones in the home, and it diminishes the lucidness ofthe patient and precludes any return to a quality of life. This should bing
criminal charges as well in any humane society but not in Saskatoon Health Region, in the Good old Tommy Douglas style care of the NDP. Remember this when you are voting. Tell Jack Layton what a buffoon he is when he wants to save health care so his pals and friends can live in style off the population.
My husband had a runny nose all the time in the hospital, no doctor helped him, he had a sore through that increasingly stopped him from eating, not attended by the doctors or nurses, he had a reddened bottom from bacteria in the catheter that made it painful for him to sit and to do the exercises they gave him, and last Thursday we were informed after going across the city, where this home is located from us in a $50 cab ride, that he is quarantined and they dont know what he has and when we will be able to see him.
Next I received a request for our 2004 taxes and I promptly called our accountant, because I am not visually able, and my husband did not do taxes. Mr. Norris advises me that he in turn promptly contacted Ann Little at Parkridge Centre and faxed the 2004 tax to her.
Then my accountant phoned and said Traci Laycock social worker wanted me to sign blank forms - same old thing - which I would not do. I was upset as to how she knew he was my accountant and who told her -because information given to Ann Little was supposed to be confidential - it is not. Do not believe them. In NDP lan it is a dictatorship. They have sent me three more requests that I provide the 2004 figures which I dont have - the accountant has. Revenue Canada advises they accepted Mr. Norris submission and have found him quite accurate. I phoned the drug plan because I know they are submitted there and was told that they were happy, but then the head sent me an intimidating and coercing, bullying letter demanding that the 2004 figures be supplied by me. What is this - they can make the blind see.
Good old NDP Saskatoon Health Region. Never come to this province. Well I can't see so they will have to enact their threats like Hitler.
In Saskatchewan when one spoouse goes into a home, the other must get a divorce or legal separation, in order that I can get funds for my own care and the equivalent to the spouses allowance so my granddaughter and I can eat. Trevor Siemens tell me that its just a friendly thing but when I phone Revenue Canada Winnipeg they advise me Saskatchewan does not set the rules for them - they do and I have to get the separation or divorce if I want to eat - and that is the way it is for all seniors in Saskatchewan or disabled people - or otherwise I should consider moving out of province where the taxes are more favorable to seniors and where benefits are more.
Now the mystery of why he was unable to come home. The doctors and their families and friends own the nursing homes I learn from the network and their contacts in each hospital sit and try and get victims for each home - those that have resources they can suck out of - this not only should be a crime, it all slso should be prohibited by conflict of interest.
Then they are able to drug them with medication known to keep them in a stupor so the home saves money on staff if they cant ask for a drink of water and bother them and also they cant eat much so they save on food. Yes this is Tommy Douglas health care for his friends, and relatives, and nepotism and imprisonment for the population. Please wake up and go for private healthcare with insurance companies, because these companies monitor the doctors the institutions and give you some protestion and some resource for complaint - you have none now in NDP Saskatoon health region.
My husband is billed for a grungy, dirty little room with bad air, and the government pays additionally - my husbands share I am told now nearly $1700. Look about you - Rosedale Estates in Edmonton for one - $1300-$1900 for a luxurious assisted one bedroom apartment for two of you and hospital nearby, shopping nearby, and lifetime rehabilitation opposite on the street.
In addition dinner is supplied, linens, light housekeeping, Get you up in the morning and to bed at night, homecare in addition available, pick mail and garbage. Full restaurant open 7/4. Is that not more in keeping with what you would liketo have even if a loved one is ill, be with them with help to care for them not see them warehoused in some private house, or these chicken like Parkridge.
The other thing about the charges, the Saskatoon Health Region through their doctors induced his state by their failure to curtail these drugs and be firm on it, but now they want me to pay for their actions, not only for the room but to pay for the drugs that caused my husband harm. These are no "no fault inurance" issues that Judge Sinclair spoke about. They arepure and simple criminal actions because both the Saskatoon Health Region and the doctors have known for some time of the advice and harm to paitents, but they deliberately use them to cause harm, I believe, and to fill up their nursing beds, creating jobs for their extended familes, as Calvert the brain drain thathe wants to bring home. Their not very brainy, not any of them, Ralph Klein is doing much better asking for the top brains anywhere in the world to come and build up Alberta and bring comfort to his citizens. This should be criminal and police investigate without any delay, but they dont -why not?
i.e Rosedale Estates has no means test - the rent is- and is two thirds or more more than the dingy room my husband has, for one third of the cost of the Sask Government provision.
If you phone Regina you are told Parkridge Centre is Private - What private in a public health atmosphere Jack Layton - come on what's going on here. The staff tell me they dont understand it because they are government workers, union paid - I understand it they are charging the patient and the government is paying as well, and the whole taxpayer is being hosed while Calverts brains
that he brings home rips all of us off.
As well as having only certain doctors,they have a pharmacy that rips the patient off too assigned for each one - i.e. Earl's for Parkridge and charges and periodic up charge for reviewing the meds - send him home our pharmacist is a lot cheaper, but then this is ripping off the taxpayer in the NDP public health system, right, the gravy train and no one must miss the boat.
How much do the police and lawyers get for closing their eyes to this horrendous abuse, murder and rape of the taxpayer.
My husbandis in quarantine in a very deteriorated condition and they will hurt him because of this report more, but obviously they intend to kill him - and kill is the operative word as this condition from day one did not warrant admission to the facility except to warehouse to termination. He has suffered so, but perhaps others will come forward, for there are many links to similar things happening and pleas for help with the administering of the contra indicated medications.
