Fined $26,000 for telling the TRUTH! - April 18th 2017, 06:52 AM


I hope you're OK.

Click on THIS and let me know what you think.


I say... if Saskatchewan nurses are genuinely appalled [as I believe they should be] by this decision they need to turn their backs on the SRNA. [Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association] Don't give them ONE THIN DIME. Demand that Justin Trudeau [The Canadian Prime Minister] get involved. Do something to disband them - to get rid of them. The only power the SRNA has is the power that nurses give them.

But that's me. What do YOU think?!

My opinion in nurses in general for seniors homes is that I do feel they aren't doing enough for them. I know some senior homes have programs in place like volunteers come in and help them, or therapy dogs go in, or they take a trip somewhere. Being confined to a room all day long till they peacefully die seems harsh. It's not just the nurses, but the homes itself need to put more activities and plans in place.

Nurses should be administering medication, taking vitals, having friendly chats and check ins. They should also assist them to washrooms, eating, going outside, to another room, etc., I am sure that is all happening.

The nurses story is vague as it doesn't say what happened at the long term centre her grandparents were at. Was there misconduct, illegal practices, or other. I am more interested to know what "sub-par care" is. What is that? That article doesn't really say what, so I am not understanding. I could have missed something in the article but nothing stands out to explain "sub-par care".

Have questions or would like to chat send me a PM

What is it exactly that she said on Facebook?

At first glance, this obviously looks like it follows the behavioral patterns of organizations who try to silence or intimidate whistle-blowers.

But then, I don't really know the details of what happened. I've never really researched what social care is like in Canada either, and don't know anyone personally who receives it, so it's hard for me to have an opinion. My experience is that generally almost anywhere you go in the world, people complain that they're not receiving good enough care.

What I look for when people make these sorts of complaints, is some sort of reasonably objective metric that can delineate between "good" and "bad", but in the case of social care for older people even this is difficult (it's not the same as comparing car manufacturers). Most cases I'm aware of when something was done by governments to reform or improve social care for older people, was as a result of relatively isolated incidents of genuine abuse of older people, or at least these appeared "isolated" to start with until more people came forward. Of course, I do think this is more than a good enough reason to do something about it, but it's a strong indicator that there seems to be little effective effort made to actually monitor the quality of social care which older people receive in the first place. If this was done, it would be easier to address shortfalls, and prevent abuse instead of reacting to it, etc.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I think that the judgement should depend on whether she went to the hospital and had a chat to them first, sort of going through the proper channels, as opposed to making such a public complaint.
