Twitter Web App : After 10 mths, there has to be a better plan than "Just do the right thing". Too many people CAN'T do better. We need paid sick leave, ⬆️isolation facilities, ⬆️ testing access in hard hit areas or more lives will be lost. Needlessly. twitter.com/CP24/status/13…

Twitter Web App : PSWs bathe, feed & provide essential care for vulnerable seniors. They get paid very little for this work...all while risking their lives.

So it's immoral when for-profit corporations don't pay them a required wage increase.

Pay PSWs what they deserve. Now.


Twitter Web App : 50 hours a week to barely survive in Toronto. And, of course, no sick leave, if you develop symptoms! twitter.com/drnancyolivier…

Twitter Web App : Our questions about #ConflictsOfInterest, #PatientSafety, #InformedConsent and prescription of an unlicensed drug at University Health Network are outlined here in 20+ letters, with an extensive analysis of the issues published in J Med Ethics, 2020: inthepatientsinterest.org (2/3)

Twitter Web App : Often difficult to understand what is meant by “a little bit of a misunderstanding” at University Health Network, where my colleagues & I have been struggling for over a year to clear up misunderstandings(?) arising from use of an unlicensed drug: journals.plos.org/plosone/articl… (1/3)

Twitter Web App : Dr. Vivian Stamatopoulos Merrilee Fullerton, MPP there are judicial consequences (think LTC home deaths):

Nick Lyon, Michigan’s former health director, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of nine people who got Legionnaires’ disease during the Flint water crisis. to.pbs.org/38Ijnbu

Twitter Web App : Just like the US effectively litigated Extendicare out of the US, I’ll be working hard as hell to make sure bad actors face the same outcome here in Canada. twitter.com/torontostar/st…

Twitter Web App : Happy to be interviewed alongside Dr. Pat Armstrong about the continued failure of many for profit homes to get their act together. We MUST put an end to For Profit LTC.
Local LTC homes continue to fail follow-up inspections twitter.com/chchnews/statu…

Twitter Web App : ICYMI in last 2 days; I did (tho Dr. Vivian Stamatopoulos had tweeted):
Class action lawsuit for that fine company #Extendicare which in COVID spent grand total of $300K in #LTC while dozens died - but was able to find $10M for its shareholders.

Twitter Web App : CdnLiberty Theresa Boyle Toronto Star RNAO WeRPN H. Yamashiro Ontario Medical Association Ontario Pharmacists Association CPhA/APhC If Health #Canada Guide had been used, #HOMECARE nurses, PSWs, docs caring x patients C19 would have been prioritized same as hospitals workers

Instead, in #COVID19Ontario back office staff in hospitals such as IT, accounting, admin got the vac.


Twitter Web App : From an ⁦Extendicare Inc.⁩ Assist supervisor:
After dedicating his life to nursing, he has lost trust in his employer. “There is no friggin’ way I would ever put [my mother] in a place like that. Never.”

Twitter Web App : “Moral wounds have this peculiarity: they may be hidden, but they never close; always painful, always ready to bleed when touched, they remain fresh and open in the heart.”
