Hold Dr,'s and Hospitals Responsible for PREVENTABLE MEDICAL ERRORS
Dear Prime Minister, Ms. Patty Hajdu and Ms. Christine Elliott,
Even the W.H.O is appalled by the fact that the 3rd leading cause of Death is from Preventable Medical Error. It doesn't mention the number of us that actually live with the the injuries. There is NO accountability or support for the Victims, aside from provincial Disabilities Programs. They do not cover what we need.
Why is this important?
The CPSO made a decision of no neglect without the Operative Report, also the Dr. that did this to me was on the Board. Only to find out we have to hire a Lawyer just to find out what happened, fact is our tax $$ pay for the Dr.'s Medical Malpractice Insurance yet the numbers do not add up. Especially when you see a Patient dying every 17 minutes from a PREVENTABLE MEDICAL ERROR . At Least offer to pay for their funeral or transportation costs to send their dead bodies home. Perhaps a , I'M sorry would be nice. But it continues to happen, our Government "turns a blind eye". Let's start with accountability, make it Dr.s and nurses can be honest , open when an error happens, no recourse or discipline for those who come forward. It helps them and would make those who keep making these errors think twice. So they treat us as a person not a pay check, not an acceptable loss. Imagine the amount of money here in Canada at least, could save. Maybe put back into programs that have been cut. Just a thought.
How it will be delivered
In person, with many Friends, I'm hoping.
