START A PETITION

Oct 16, 2013

I started a petition on care2 calling on the Canadian federal and provincial governments to create a " PATIENTS BILL OF RIGHTS ". The purpose of this legislation would be to make it easier to get compensation/justice for patient/victims of any hospital/medical instituition/nursing home/medical professional wrongdoing which leads to any illness, injury or death. This " Patients Bill of Rights " should prevent and prohibit the misinformation, cover ups or outright lies , delays with medical records, and "blaming the victim" tactics often employed by hospitals against the very patients they have wronged ( sickened, injured, maimed or killed ) by medical errors, negligence, misdiagnosis, deadly hospital "super bugs" etc. Canadian hospitals employ the so-called "risk management" ( smoke and mirrors, whitewash and spin ) offices to mislead, deflect, delay and cover up their wrongdoing in cases of hospital-caused deaths and other tragedies. Many cases of medical malpractice are so obvious and straightforward that the patient/victims or their families should not have to resort to the expensive and time-wasting process of litigation through the courts in order to get the compensation/justice owed to them. The " Patients Bill of Rights " would streamline the process of compensating patient/victims eliminating the, more costly to all, courts system altogether. The more difficult, complicated and contentious medical malpractice cases would still be able to use the more costly, to all of us, legal/court system.
