Sara Harvey: A tribute to my husband Gary
Editor’s note: These comments are MINE!
The video below is a brief history of the torment and abuse of Gary Harvey, a man who served his country, who led an active and vibrant life before sustaining a head injury in his home. At the hands of a predatory guardian, Adult Protective Services, a lucrative and powerful law firm, and a hospital that is raking in more than a million per year keeping him, Gary has been held as a virtual prisoner in the hospital.
Twice, there have been efforts to end Gary’s life through starvation and dehydration. Sara fought and won the battle to keep her husband alive. Even still, the documented neglect, constant infections left unattended, massive bed sores, numerous surgeries for unknown reasons, and the courts refusal to allow Gary to be returned home where his wife could care for him go on unabated. After all, Gary is an absolute cash cow for the system.
Sara has been the target of unsubstantiated accusations by the predators involved. If and when she is “allowed” to visit her husband, a security guard is present, she is not allowed to take pictures, she is not allowed to hold his hand, kiss him or otherwise show him any affection.
Think this is an isolated situation? Think again! This is happening in every town, city and state in the country. This could happen to you! Your wife, husband, father, mother, child…….no one is exempt from the organized criminal rings operating with and through our family and probate courts.
The Gary Harvey case illustrates a terrible, terrible irony: a Veteran denied the very freedom our Veterans have fought for. Denying Gary Harvey the comfort of his wife is cruel and inhumane treatment. Join the national movement for reform of unlawful and abusive guardianships and conservatorships —- join NASGA!

Gary Harvey celebrated another birthday in his room (prison cell) at St Joseph hospital. His wife was told she could “kiss him twice on the cheek” and could “hold his hand” as long as her hand remained absolutely still…….otherwise….these special privileges would cease immediately.
Special privileges? A wife kissing her husband? Holding his hand? And these are special privileges?
Chemung County should be forced to register the Case of Gary Harvey as a “for profit” venture. Gary has been a virtual cash cow for everyone who has their fingers in his case.
We have been following the tragic case of Gary and Sara Harvey for several years now. Gary, who suffered a head injury seven years ago in his home, has been held for ransom by Chemung County, New York. Also tapping into the case of “Gary Harvey–All for profit venture!” are numerous attorneys, probate judges and others all connected to the same law firm! What a coincidence!

financial exploitation, Guardianship Abuse

It seems the tortured imprisonment of Gary Harvey in Chemung County New York, will never end. Mr. Harvey who suffered a head injury as a result of a fall in his home seven years ago, has been a real cash cow for not only the hospital he is confined to, but also for numerous agencies, attorneys and predatory guardians. As long as Mr. Harvey can be owned and controlled by the predators, his safety, welfare and general overall health will continue to deteriorate. But there is money to be made! And Mr. Harvey has been a virtual ATM for those who continue to hold him hostage.
Mr. Harvey has been billed more than 1 million a year in medical and rehabilitation costs billed to his wife’s insurance. Much of this was for rehabilitation services that never occurred. State agencies and agents are availing themselves of Mr. Harvey’s social security checks, and any funds supplied by the Veterans Administration along with Medicaid funds. You can see it is not in the financial interests of the predators involved to release Gary from his imprisonment.
To understand just how vindictive, how callous and vicious these individuals can be, please note the letter received shown below. Keep in mind this is Sara Harvey’s husband who is being abused here, and this letter is in regards to his birthday visit from his wife:

Hearing scheduled for January 30, 2013 @9:30 AM in chemung county supreme court.
Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 27 / –
Attorney Christopher Johnson has filed with the Supreme Court of the State of New York, asking the court to allow Mr. Bobby Schindler, brother of Terri Schiavo to serve as Guardian for Mr. Gary Harvey.
In 2006, Mr. Harvey, a Chemung County resident, was involved in a home accident, which left him with a profound brain injury. His spouse, Mrs. Sara Harvey, sought guardianship only to be denied by the Chemung County Supreme Court who ultimately appointed the Chemung County Department of Social Services as Mr. Harvey’s guardian. Since that time, Mrs. Harvey has been in a prolonged court battle with Chemung County officials and the New York State Court System.
Indeed, it was in May of 2009 when the ethics committee from the hospital where Mr. Harvey was residing recommended the removal of his nutrition and hydration tube, and also issued a “do-not-resuscitate order” (DNR).
Fortunately, the court denied that request. However, inexplicably, the DNR stayed in place and Mr. Harvey remains under the control of Chemung County, despite the fact that the county tried to end his life.
“I have raised the question many times, ‘How can Chemung County, Guardian of Mr. Harvey, be acting in his best interest when they, in fact, tried to kill him?’ From all indications, it appears that Mr. Harvey has been warehoused and denied the opportunity to receive the care and rehabilitative services that would benefit his condition,” stated Bobby Schindler.
It is the hope that with this filing, the court will recognize that Mr. Harvey deserves the chance to receive aggressive therapy and rehabilitation. Certainly from Mr. Schindler’s experience with brain injured persons, he would afford Mr. Harvey the help he needs in the hopes to significantly improve his quality of life.
Bobby Schindler is the brother of Terri Schiavo and is the Executive Director of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network, established in 2005 to protect the rights of the medically vulnerable. For more information, please visit http://www.lifeandhope.com/

Welcome to St. Joseph Hospital of Elmira, New York, where they claim on their website:
“St. Joseph’s Hospital, a Catholic health facility, is a voluntary not-for-profit community general hospital founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester in cooperation with the physicians and citizens of Elmira, NY. The St. Joseph’s Hospital community, by maintaining a deep respect for the dignity of each person, strives to heal, as Jesus did, in mind, body and spirit, all who come to us.”
“Maintaining a deep respect for the dignity of each person”… except for Gary Harvey.
Oh, I’m so sure Jesus would be quite proud of the staff of the hospital, the guardian group of people and attorneys involved in the Harvey case. Of course, I wouldn’t be counting on him having picked out everyone’s heavenly spot yet.
It was Thanksgiving Day and Sara Harvey had made the arrangements to visit her husband. She and the guard arrived only to be told that the hospital hadn’t received an okay. Guard is not authorized if visit is not authorized, but the dignity people continued with their refusal.
(Cliff Note: A guard is required because Sara is supposedly a danger to her husband because she supposedly didn’t follow medical advice. The hospital, guardians et al petitioned the court to starve & dehydrate Gary to death, but she is the danger. Irony at its best.)
So, while all the important people, who should have made sure the visit was authorized and those who could have given the okay after the failed communication, enjoyed their Thanksgiving meals with the ones of their choice, Gary was denied a mere visit from his wife. The wife that loves him… talks to him… reads to him. Instead, he, a person who has always loved holidays and spending them with the wife he loves — got to lay there alone in the isolation that is his life.
What a group of people…
Local politics of control at its best with the dignity people so proud of their compassionate behavior — the refusal of a simple visit on a special holiday! But then… it was only Gary & Sara Harvey!

“Shame on the almighty people that gloat in having such power in the Harvey case. Did you enjoy your day? Did you give someone a hug and a smile and feel ever so good at having a chance to celebrate the family holiday with them?
Shame on the staff at St. Joseph’s hospital. May you never find yourself in the Harvey position, but you could.”
The American Clarion:
It’s Thanksgiving! The sun is shining brightly. The clouds are softly floating across the sky. Birds are singing and children are playing. Laughter touches the day as families gather for a special celebration. A day they give thanks for all the blessings in their lives, especially for being blessed with family and friends they love ever so much. Oh such a wondrous day it is, unless you happen to be Gary and Sara Harvey of New York state. In that case… well… it’s a day that gives Satan delight and the Harveys’ one more moment together lost; for no other reason than because it could be done unto them.
I’m so very impressed! NOT!
Sara Harvey made arrangements for her holiday visit with Gary, as she always does. She showed up as did the guard. However, the hospital claimed they had not been notified by the guardian and refused the visit.
(Guard does not get scheduled, unless visit is authorized.)
Of course, no one in authority could be reached. You know all those people, who were celebrating their Thanksgiving Day in whatever manner was important to them — they weren’t available. They couldn’t be reached. But… oh well… no big deal that someone dropped the ball and didn’t get the word to whomever they were to get the word to. It was, after all, only Gary and Sara Harvey anyways.
Since the guards are not scheduled without authorization, one would think someone with some authority at the hospital, might have gotten out of their “duh mode” and put two and two together. Guard is here. Guard is not scheduled without authorization. There is a history of Sara being allowed holiday visits with Gary. If still in doubt — call that on-call person that can actually make important decisions; can figure out that Sara does visit on holidays, so there must have been a mere failure to communicate the permission; and, then have the guts to give the go ahead.
St. Joseph hospital is supposed to be a hospital established by Catholic nuns. Nuns who were dedicated and full of compassion. So, tell me… where is that compassion now? More
