A patient-initiated voluntary online survey of adverse medical events: the perspective of 696 injured patients and families -- Southwick et al. -- BMJ Quality and Safety

Please take this survey of patient initiated adverse medical events.  The life you save may be your own.  Hospitals, medical centers, crna's etc. get to write down THEIR impressions of how wonderful your medical care was.  Now YOU can tell the real story about how shoddy and shabby the experience really was.  Happy writing.

Oh yes this one makes me happy.  I admit to GLOATING over the fact that the anesthesia person lost their job and the patient got half a mil. in damages.  I'm loving it.

I have complained ad nauseum about my treatment at the hands of Aaron, my anesthesia nurse who was posing as a doctor.  He shot me up with Versed against my expressed instructions.  (as I'm allowed by LAW tp doctate)  Once they thought I had amnesia they began their insults and slurs.  I had to lie there helpless and listen to them degrade me.  To say I was shocked and angry is an understatement.  I could NOT understand why nobody told him to shut the hell up.  Not only that, some of them also laughed and joined in the fun of denigrating me.  I feel that their behavior contributed to the PTSD I got from my medical treatment.  They told me I was lying, that I couldn't possibly remember anything, the drug was making me hallucinate etc.  Too bad *I* didn't have a recording.  All *I* have is my intact memory.

This patient got even.  I am so happy about this!  I hope millions upon millions of people read about this lawsuit and become suspicious of their medical employees.  We have to keep a sharp eye on them because this isn't an aberration, this is business as usual for our medical minions.  Ban Versed.  It's turning our medical people into sociopaths.  Sociopath | Define Sociopath at

A patient secretly records his colonoscopy. It cost this doctor her job.

Reader Post About Dementia

I have written often about the problem of older folks going in for medical treatment with their mental processes intact and leaving for a nursing home afterwards with their brain function destroyed.  I even had an uppity anesthesia nurse (accidentally) confirm that this is a problem.  She/he claimed it was "heart patients" most at risk for hospital acquired dementia.  The patient in this comment was turned into a vegetable by medical care but wait until you read what this reader found out...

4LisasDad has left a new comment on your post "Medical People Speak Out Against Versed":

My Dad was given this drug at 79 for Hip Surgery since he was not a candidate for general anesthesia. He went into surgery mentally sharp and after surgery had complete memory loss of most of his life and was labeled as having dementia by the doctors. They dismissed my claims he did NOT have dementia before the surgery. Speaking with him he had only traumatic memories of the surgery and only moments of clarity of where he was and who I was. He was never the same after taking this drug, marked depression and anxiety/nightmares of people cutting his leg off. He eventually stopped eating and died. If I had only have known the side effects of this drug he might be alive today. He was not the only one, many of the families I talked with at the nursing home had the same experience. Some seem to get "dementia" after having something as simple as an endoscopy. Versed was the common thread to all our stories of how our loved ones ended up in the nursing home and ultimately lost their minds.

Really?  Is this what you want to happen to YOU or your loved one?  We need to ban this dangerous drug.  Obviously medical people are fully aware of this problem and choose to ignore it in favor of their own selfish desire to make their work easier.  "Versed was the common thread to ALL OUR STORIES of how our loved ones ended up in the nursing home and ultimately lost their minds."  Let that sink in.  Next time some arrogant anesthesia person approaches with a syringe of "sedation" DON'T LET THEM INJECT IT!  You have that right.
