I have a friend who has an elderly friend and companion on a stay in Mackenzie Health Center. He is this person's caregiver. This person has a right arm brace provided by a fore mentioned Health Center. My friend; who tries to visit their friend patient 4312 in bed 4, says the health care specialists are treating them too roughly and improperly. My friend has no access to '4312' and the hospital staff has made it impossible for them to visit the patient. All the caregiver and friend wants is to be able to protect '4312' and get them released to their own doctor.
Patient 4312 originally went to Mackenzie for a seizure on April 6 of 2013. Up to this past weekend, the "health care specialists" inserted a catheter several times before it worked properly and an IV was not efficiently inserted in the patients arm either. Their caregiver got barred for being a compassionate person with training and experience. They just wanted the nurses to not be so rough with '4312' and hear what they had to say.
The caregiver believes the patient needs to be discharged so they can go home. They don't need hospital care anymore as admitted by their own doctor. Nurses, the family doctor, social worker, and physiotherapist all will visit the patient regularly as they did in the past and the patient and caregiver live together in a common residence.
SO WAKE UP FOLKS AT MACKENZIE HEALTH! YOU CAN LET THE PATIENT GO HOME. STOP GETTING ALL THOSE UNWARRANTED MONIES FROM OHIP!
The Wee Few Thoughts of Dylan the Dog
I just have one thought going around in my brain right now. I want the bad weather to go away from now till the end of November. I want to go to the park regularly with my lady, Ruth. I want some lots of walking and fresh air. Hope it comes soon and that the Creator of everything lets everything grow and flourish. That is all I got to say.
