Sorry, couldn't resist. It's an error that has been made SO MANY times and rubbed in peoples' faces so many times, I'm quite surprised the mistake still prevails!
who occassionally skips the proof read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
Here is an article explaining exactly why it is so desperately wrong of LIE-berals to be using huge sums of tax money to create an electric vehicle industry that will feed off the LIE-beral electric generation slush fund they have created for the sake of producing the gravy they need to buy civil service union Hog votes so they can cling to power at any price! While at the same time they RATION health care- since there is not enough cash to go around- with this sort of result! With some comments of my own in brackets):
5-week-old girl dies at home in mother's arms while hospital over capacity 10/12
cbc.ca. March 6/2018. By Gabrielle Fahmy
Tessa McAllister and Cody Hay believe their daughter Blayke could have been saved had she been admitted to the Miramichi Regional Hospital.
Hours after an appointment with her doctor, five-week-old Blayke Hay-McAllister died in her mother's arms at her Miramichi home, her tiny fingers wrapped around her mother's hand.
On Jan. 31, two days before Blayke died, she was sent to the hospital for an X-ray and swabs. She tested positive for respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV. The virus is a common cold among older children and adults, but for an infant can be dangerous.
The results were sent to her doctor, Dr. Jeffrey Hans, the next day.
By that time, according to McAllister, Blayke had been sick for about three weeks and had been seen at least five times by doctors, including her family doctor, Hans. Each time, she said, she was told to take her baby home.
(So each time doctors- who are under HUGE pressure to RATION our health care so LIE-berals can save on gravy- had decided the kid was sick but not quite too dangerously sick? YET!)
Hans called the Miramichi hospital about admitting Blayke but was told the hospital was 20 per cent over capacity.
(It`s that rationing thing- silly people persist in getting sick in spite of LIE-beral orders to the contrary!)
On Feb. 1, after her mom tried to get her admitted to hospital earlier in the day. Her parents say the infant's suffering was apparent and she was struggling to breathe.
She said he told her the emergency department was full of flu patients and she would need to go through ER to gain admittance. Hans didn't think that was the proper course of action, McAllister said.
(Of course its not the right way! If you just show up at emergency with an obvious medical problem they cannot legally send you away- and being forced to treat patients when over capacity messes up the rationing! But the other way- with your Doc phoning and asking nicely- lets some bureaucrat fob you off till another day!)
So, again, she took Blayke home.
(And how serious a picture is this? My teen sister developed a bronchial lung infection and damned near smothered to death when her throat became plugged with mucus and she stopped breathing while sleeping! Doctors are playing dangerous games here with this rationing crap!)
(And no doubt whining LIE-berals are now asking what a sick kid has to do with electric toy vehicles? And the answer is EVERYTHING! There is not enough money for all needs and LIE-berals have DELIBERATELY CHOSEN to throw OUR money at a risky new industry that has a history of FAILING to provide the quality and service that older products do- INSTEAD of dealing with dying kids!)
(Toronto LIE-berals are on their third contract for electric busses- each time using substantial money supplied by senior govt- and the previous 2 bus contracts have been FAILURES- the mouldy green machines cost at least 50 percent more than diesel busses and DO NOT deliver the fuel economies or reliability that were the alleged selling points to begin with! Money that should go into health care is WASTED on these electric toy vehicles!)
"Holding my dead daughter … I'll never get that picture out of my head," said McAllister.
"I'll never forgive myself for falling asleep. Because what if she did make a little tiny noise? That's something I'll have to live with for the rest of my life."
The ambulance arrived five hours before Blayke was to return to the doctor's office.
"She is currently quite congested and coughing with thick mucus. Could these symptoms be compatible with cystic fibrosis?
(Cystic Fibrosis? The kid is coughing so hard they think kid might have a lethal disease like that? But there ain’t room in hospital for the kid? If you have ever seen a person- like my sister- choking to death on her own mucus it WILL BE CLEAR there is something badly wrong! Unless you are an idiot!)
"Anyway, I'd appreciate it if you would assess this infant for me and make sure there is nothing I'm missing."
On Feb 1., after the finding of RSV came back and McAllister asked Hans to get Blayke admitted to hospital, the baby's suffering was apparent, she said.
She sent a letter to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick, asking it to look into the case. She also asked for a meeting with hospital officials.
"Somebody didn't do their job at the hospital," McAllister said. "And the blame isn't just on the hospital, it's on the doctor who should have fought to have her admitted."
(The woman is wrong here- it is our LIE-beral govt that has FAILED us!)
Officials at the Miramichi Regional Hospital said it would always provide a bed for a patient needing one, even when over capacity. No one will be turned away.
(Seems like that is LIE-beral propaganda! I recall the outrage some years back of a doctor at a North York hospital. His mother had suffered a stroke and was taken by ambulance to the hospital- which was over capacity as usual- so the women was put on a gurney and left in a hallway.)
(Some time later- her son heard of her situation and arrived at hospital and found his mother in a hallway- and began reading her charts looking for treatment information- and there was virtually NONE! The hospital was so overloaded- 20 years ago- that they had simply given the woman pain killers and left her to quietly DIE!)
(Doctor son went on a rampage with words like LAWSUIT prominent in his rant- with the fact he was fully trained to comment on the lack of care STRONGLY motivating hospital staff!)
(Isn’t it ODD that the “dying woman” made a nice recovery and went home happy AFTER hospital administrators got a belly full of SERIOUS legal threats from her doctor son? )
(This is the price of LIE-beral health rationing- AND it is the price of LIE-berals screwing around with electric toy vehicles as well- that not ready for mass production infant industry is sucking billions out of our pockets - for NOTHING!)
(LIE-beral bribery will cost us huge sums if they manage to persuade more than 1-2 percent of drivers to adopt these vehicles! Currently electric vehicles have such short range and such long refueling times that only an eccentric few will pay the price to drive one of these toys!)
(And LIE-beral efforts to create an electric bus industry- with the full costs and disappointing performance all roughly hidden behind civil service Hog silence is NOT helping the LIE-beral cause!)
This has happened before, says 2nd mother. McAllister is not the only young parent in Miramichi to have struggled with access to health care for an infant with RSV.
Mallory Stewart came close to losing her two-month-old son last year.
"It's been 11 months since we were faced with one of the hardest things we have ever had to go through," Stewart posted on Facebook. "Eleven months since the Miramichi Hospital neglected my child, sending us home numerous times when he was so so sick. Eleven months since they were the reason Karsen almost died."
(No wonder no changes have been made! LIE-berals now face HUGE PRESSURE to ration health care even further as those swarms of illegals that LIE-berals are collecting like crazy cat ladies rounding up strays- is putting ever greater pressure on the LIE-beral gravy train! And LIE-beral GRAVY NEED trumps all others! It`s just too bad for the kids eh?)
In Stewart's case, Karsen was eventually admitted to the Miramichi hospital after three visits to the emergency department, but according to her, given little treatment there, with staff telling the family things would get better on their own.
Stewart said a swab for RSV was taken on their first visit to the ER. They learned it was positive on the second visit, but they were sent home again.
It wasn't until the third visit that their son was admitted.
Stewart believes it's only because she demanded her son be airlifted to the IWK in Halifax that he is still alive today.
(Yeah- kick up a big enough fuss for honest reasons and LIE-berals cave!)
Doctors in Halifax found one of the baby's lungs had partially collapsed, Stewart said.
"He was intubated and sedated for six days and he had a feeding tube the whole time," she said.
Dr. Hans declined an interview with CBC.
(No WONDER!!! Who in their right minds would speak of their central part in a massive medical disaster that is apparently ON-GOING? Think of the legal repercussions! Much better- for LIE-berals- to BURY the problem?)
McAllister, who is recovering from substance abuse and lives on social assistance, wonders what led to her baby's case being was treated the way it was.
(Oh- okay- this is LIE-beral snobbery in action! LIE-berals make loud noises about helping those with addictions- and then offer them nothing but free needles and some welfare money- no need to hand out valuable health care to dead beats and drug addicts is there? Is that the conclusion we should come to? That electric toy buses and gHog ravy take priority over dying babies in LIE-beral land?)
At her meeting with Miramichi hospital officials, McAllister and members of her family were told Blayke absolutely should have been admitted on February 1 because RSV was a serious diagnosis for any child under two months of age, but the officials had no clear answer as to why she wasn't.
McAllister has one theory.
"My baby Blayke died because of politics. That's what I got out of the meeting. ."
Baby needed more care than Miramichi hospital provided, says mom.
(Yeah- I think Mom summed it up- the kid was deemed an inconvenience thanks to that LIE-beral rationing crap!)
