NASGA Press Release: National guardianship abuse awareness organization applauds Michigan Lt. Governor’s decision to replace State Public Administrator

1 Comment


December 2, 2019                    For Immediate Release

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As both an advocate for victims of guardianship abuse and legislative change nationwide, the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse (NASGA) commends Michigan Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist’s decision appointing Katharyn Barron as State Public Administrator as a hopeful step in the right direction in a state which has been plagued with horrific abuses of constitutional, statutory and human rights of individuals under guardianship and their families allegedly committed by County Public Administrators and Probate Court Judges for the past 30 years.

Although the November 22 announcement by Attorney General Dana Nessel curiously omitted any mention of former State Public Administrator Michael Moody, who held the position for over eight years, NASGA Community Outreach Coordinator Gretchen Rachel Hammond says the decision to replace him is long overdue.

Prior to joining NASGA, Hammond was an award-winning investigative journalist who published an August, 2019 groundbreaking five-part series detailing alleged abuses by now-former Oakland County Public Administrators in over 2,000 cases. The articles noted that Moody had been consistently unresponsive to complaints by desperate families who reached out to him stating that public administrators, acting as guardians and conservators, were isolating, abusing and stealing from the estates of seniors and developmentally disabled individuals placed under Oakland County Probate Court guardianship often after petitions filed by agencies such as Michigan’s Adult Protective Services which were not accompanied by any corroborating medical evidence.

Objective 

To systematically quantify the prevalence, severity, and nature of preventable patient harm across a range of medical settings globally.

Introduction

Patient harm during healthcare is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality internationally.

The World Health Organization defines patient harm as “an incident that results in harm to a patient such as impairment of structure or function of the body and/or any deleterious effect arising therefrom or associated with plans or actions taken during the provision of healthcare, rather than an underlying disease or injury, and may be physical, social or psychological (eg, disease, injury, suffering, disability and death).” 

The health burden and patient experiencing healthcare-related patient harm has been reported to be comparable to chronic diseases such as multiple sclerosis and cervical cancer in developed countries, and tuberculosis and malaria in developing countries.

Harmful patient incidents are a major financial burden for healthcare systems across the globe.

It is estimated that 10-15% of healthcare expenditures are consumed by the direct sequelae of healthcare-related patient harm.

Early detection and prevention of patient harm in healthcare is an international policy priority.

In principle, zero harm would be the ideal goal. However, this goal is not feasible because some harms cannot be avoided in clinical practice.

For example, some adverse drug reactions which occur in the absence of any error in the prescription process and without the possibility of detection are less likely to be preventable.

Key sources of preventable patient harm could include the actions of healthcare professionals (errors of omission or commission), healthcare system failures, or involve a combination of errors made by individuals, system failures, and patient characteristics.

Key types of preventable harm were

  1. drug-related,
  2. diagnostic errors,
  3. medical procedure-related, and
  4. healthcare-acquired infections.

The excess length of hospital stays attributable to medical errors is estimated to be 2.4 million hospital days, which accounts for $9.3 billion excess charges in the US. More

Medical/Surgical Error and Prescription Drug Adverse Reactions: The 3rd Leading Cause of Death in the US

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD – 12-3-2019 (2590 words)

 

“2.6 million people die annually in low-and middle-income countries from medical errors, and that most of those deaths are related to misdiagnosis and administration of pharmaceutical products…Medication errors alone cost an estimated $42 billion (US dollars) annually. Unsafe surgical care procedures cause complications in up to 25% of patients resulting in 1 million deaths during or immediately after surgery annually…Four out of every ten patients are harmed during primary and ambulatory health care. The most detrimental errors are related to diagnosis, prescription and the use of medicines.” — The World Health Organization

Below are summaries of two medical journal articles and one online article that conclude that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the US. The first study, published in 2016 in the British Medical Journal, was authored by researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The authors calculated that medical errors accounted for > 250,000 deaths every year in the US, which made iatrogenic (= physician, drug or vaccine-caused) deaths the third leading cause of death in the US, surpassed only by #1 heart disease (647,457) and #2 cancer (599,108) (2018 CDC data). 

It is important to note that medical errors and adverse effects from prescription drugs that have caused deaths or illnesses are rarely listed by physicians on death certificates or in rankings of causes of death or illnesses. The journal articles call for better reporting by physicians.

Also be aware that the two studies – as has been the case of ALL such studies of causes of death, acute illnesses, chronic illnesses or adverse drug effects – did NOT evaluate vaccine-induced deaths or injuries, mainly because virtually every physician, in every country (where powerful, for-profit pharmaceutical/vaccine corporations control the practice of medicine, most medical school curricula and most major media outlets), consistently fails – or refuses to acknowledge – even the most obvious vaccine injuries or deaths as worthy of being reportable diseases or worthy of being listed in their differential diagnostic impressions, discharge diagnoses or death certifications.

Merck forcing your child to pay for their losses in court

1 Comment

Fed Up Democrat

— Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has revealed that Merck’s internal documents state the company’s big push to have their HPV vaccine Gardasil become mandatory for all children over the age of 9 is to help offset the losses the company experienced from VIOXX lawsuits.

VIOXX was Merck’s #1 product. It was a prescription painkiller that was causing heart attacks and strokes. The company was sued in court and it was revealed that Merck was aware their drug was killing people and did nothing about it. They agreed to pay $7 billion to settle the lawsuits against them.

In an interview with The Gilchrist Experience RFK Jr. reveals that internal Merck documents show the company is promoting mandatory HPV vaccines to children as a way to convince Wall St. analysts that their stock was set to boom despite the VIOXX scandal. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stated the following:

“The Wall St. analysts were saying (Merck) was finished, because (VIOXX) was their biggest product. Merck said no, we’ve got something better. We’ve got a product that is going to be mandated so everyone in the world has to take it, every teenager; and this time we have no liability and we can’t get caught. Within Merck we now have documents from them because we are suing them; they called it “HPV, Help Pay for VIOXX.”

Stop worrying about the “commies” or the Socialists …Its Fascism Stupid!

In My Opinion…..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I swear if I see one more hysterical extreme right winger screeching hysterically about how the “commies” are coming or, the Socialists are taking over I will probably vomit.  We are in the grips of full blown fascism and the corporations now rule our country, our economy, and virtually every aspect of our lives.  As the corporate elites live like parasites on a fat infested dog, more Americans are left homeless, hungry and without hope.

Hiding behind radical religious institutions, a vicious political party has formed which I like to call “the Idiocons”. The name is derived from the words “idiot” and “con” artists who worship power more than life itself.  Add a heaping helping of religious extremism and we have the perfect storm for an idiocracy.

The Idiocons recite with predictable regularity that we are a nation founded on Christian principles.  We are NOT!  The founders were those who fled England and the collaboration of church and state against the people.  The one thing they were intent on avoiding was the combining of religion and government.  Hence, we got the 1st Amendment which not only allows us to believe what we wish to believe, but to do so without government interference or collusion.  It states specifically that there will be a separation of church and state; the founders recognizing and remembering what a murderous and deadly combination this was and could become.  ( George Washington in the Treaty of Tripoli, states emphatically that we are in no sense founded on the Christian religion)

We have attacked relentlessly other country’s who are controlled by radical religious beliefs. We have seen first hand how dangerous and murderous a religion controlled government can be to its own people.  Do you really want that here?  The Evangelical movement which is commonly referred to as the “evangevils” represents the same kind of threat to our nation as other radical religious belief systems represent to theirs.  And in each country operating as a fascist regime, religion is the weapon of choice used to beat the people down.

Radical religions along with fascism are the cornerstones of the Idiocon party.  It is not about God or what is best for the country….its all about power.

Our own U.S. Senate, in 1797, stated clearly that “the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.”

The words appeared in the Treaty of Tripoli, written when George Washington was president, sent to the Senate by John Adams, who followed Washington as president. It was read aloud in the Senate and also printed for every senator. The senators voted unanimously to ratify, with no dissension noted in any record, and there is little evidence of any public complaints when the treaty was printed in three newspapers, in Philadelphia and New York City.

THOMAS JEFFERSON’S VIEWS OF THE PURITAN FAITH

“His [Calvin’s] religion was demonism. If ever man worshiped a false God, he did. The being described in his five points is … a demon of malignant spirit. It would be more pardonable to believe in no God at all, than to blaspheme him by the atrocious attributes of Calvin”

Source: Thomas Jefferson, Works, Vol. IV, p. 363.

“Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity.  What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth.”

FDA Shocking Study: Cells Used In Vaccines Contaminated With Serious Viruses Including Cancer

Leave a comment

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published shocking results which found that cells used in the manufacturing of numerous childhood vaccines are often contaminated with serious viruses including cancer.

The FDA study looked at vaccines that are made from living cells, or replicated cell substrates that some manufacturers are investigating to create. According to research, these cells are oftentimes contaminated with hidden viral fragments which have the potential to cause cancer.

These viruses are dormant, meaning they live “quietly” inside other cells. However, eventually these cells no longer hide and circulate throughout the body in the form of serious disease. As a result, a person injected with a vaccine containing these cancer-causing micro-organisms may not display signs of health complications until long after they have been jabbed sometimes several years later.

An experiment injecting rodents with vaccines yielded surprising results showing that the rats now had tumor cells.

“In some cases the cell lines that are used might be tumorigenic, that is, they form tumors when injected into rodents,” the FDA paper explains.

“Some of these tumor-forming cell lines may contain cancer-causing viruses that are not actively reproducing. Such viruses are hard to detect using standard methods. These latent, or ‘quiet,’ viruses pose a potential threat, since they might become active under vaccine manufacturing conditions.
