Pharmer knows that there are two sides to every story, but it appears that Mr. Hippe’s wife, Marilyn Nelson, who has power of attorney over her husband’s medical care, has been banned from the hospital because she disagrees with the palliative care given to her spouse. He’s been losing weight precipitously since the “care” at the hospital given for his stroke. He’s paralyzed on his left side, and has impaired speech, and has been put on Zyprexa and Haldol. (Normally Zyprexa is associated with weight gain, if the person is allowed to be awake enough to eat.)
For her contention that her husband should be in rehabilitative care, Marilyn Nelson has been totally banned from the hospital, and has recently been given two hour visitation periods, per day with no privacy.
Under the care of Dr. Carmen Price, Arthur Hippe’s weight is said to have dropped from 190 to an 100 lb estimate attributed to statements from the hospital staff.
Sometimes there is a reason to ban relatives of patients from the hospital, but it appears that the local police have found no reasons for banning Ms. Nelson. Seniors at Risk has taken up her cause, and lawyers have been attempting to intervene on her behalf for the care of her husband.
-An attempt to fundraise for Ajax Pickering hospital appears to have ground to a halt. See the facebook page.
-Check out the Rouge Valley Health system website! 😉 Yep… Toronto and West Durham, Ontario, Canada.
-You have to see the link at the health system website about its first use of medical maggots 😀
The processing of Arthur Hippe appears to be an example of the downsizing of health care that naturally occurs with socialism.
