Health Care Ontario Update

Since there seems to be an interest in this topic based on my previous posting:

See tag: Medical Care - Ontario

here are some updates to the situation.

The person who died two months ago, and on who's behalf a protest and demands of government action were launched, wasn't diagnosed in Emergency. He died of Appendicitis. If this isn't a complete exposure of rank incompetence I don't know what is.

How can someone not be diagnosed, and then Die, of appendicitis, in the 21st century, in a developed country, with Universal Health Care!

On top of this, last month, an additional case of incompetence came to light where a woman was admitted to the same hospital for leg surgery and surgery was performed on the wrong leg!!

I'll update people on my medical care situation later when I find out whether I'm going to be in pain for the rest of my life because of improper medical care and treatment or not.

From what others have told me, and they're not doctors, my treatment continues to be mishandled.

Whether that is in fact the case or not remains to be seen. If it is, I will certainly be vocal about it.

Premier McGuinty.

If your Health Minister, Smitherman, was spending even a quarter of the energy and money on the Health Care System, that he's been spending on his Draconian, and I mean Draconian, anti-Smoking campaigns, perhaps we could have a Health Care system we could be proud of.

Do you get it. McGuinty? Can you honestly say that Smitherman has been doing his job for the last five years?

If he was, would this kind of incompetence be happening?

Are you really sure it isn't happening in other hospitals as well and just being covered up?

We need a Health Care Minister who cares!
