I realize that this hurts your pride, but let's not cover up the truth about how most women are treated in the middle east.

The worst abuse of women and children comes from countries like yours Babs with your high rates of murder and domestic violence. The proliferation of prostitution and drug abuse. Fat filthy businessmen going off to Asian countries to put themselves into little girls and boys...Pornography sold in every newspaper shop and magazine outlet...90% of the internet sex for sale being mammon mad and greed orientated US smut companies...Organised paedophilia and sexual abuse running rampant in the West...I don't think you and your kind actually want to see the degradation happening in your own towns and cities...I would really scare the sh*** out of you...So you look to other countries and cultures as a means of escape.

That's another mistake!

vimjams...Working in the domestic violence field and being a women's advocate for domestic violence makes me a little more qualified than you on "violence against women" and on violence against women here and abroad. Working the phone hotline (for domestic violence)_ working at the shelters and living with domestic violence, myself( while I was growing up) plus having personal violent relationships, later, also qualifies me to talk about this subject. Caring for battered women and children at the shelters qualifies me more than you to talk about the violence women experience. What have you done in this field? disgust.gif

You would be shocked at some of the facts I could give you not to mention the personal stories of beatings, torture and murder of women that I have been exposed to. Yeah, I think I have a handle on it, vimjams. cool.gif

I think I know why you are so upset today grin2.gif ...it's election day. devil.gifthumbsup.gif What's wrong vim, getting a little wired?

I haven't hidden my head in the sand, I've been out in the trenches. disgust.gif I know for a fact that the middle east is a horrible place for women and it is hurting alis' pride_ that is why she is telling us about herself and her female relatives. She is the exception rather than the rule_ she lives in the UK half the time. Tell you anything? whistling2.gif

Yes, you are bordering on assault with your words and it is so clear that you hate the U.S. ph34r.gif It is pretty obvious that you feel impotent.

Well, this one went to hell in a handbasket pretty quickly.

Babs, If you wish to have a thread on womens rights and the discussion of women and their place in the world, please start a thread dedicated to the subject. Do not hijack threads to do so. Please try to keep it in the ballpark in regards to staying on topic...

I have asked time and time again, and am tiring of having threads derailed into off-topic bickering matches. This is my last friendly reminder to you.

Vimjams, I will not tolerate your crudeness, there are plenty of ways to say what you wanted to say without resorting to comments like you posted earlier. If you wish to be that crude, go elsewhere.

you'd believe 2+2=5 if you thought it would create an even more negative image of the middle east.

Im sorry but at least in the ME fathers havent been injecting their children with aids so as not to pay child support, the elderly in the ME arent forgotton about either, hey how do you like my generalisation of the west???

i give up talking to you people, id rather bang my head against a brick wall, than sit here night after night, trying to tell you to get on a plane and see for yourself instead of believing the same people who told you saddam had WMD.

im ashamed to say i am half western, when i sit here talking to pig ignorant people who have had a good education about a topic, theyve researched using FOX and CNN news. get a life and get out there and see for yourself instead of watching the propaganda you see everyday on your 21inch wide screen tvs and believing only what you want to.

oh and by the way, im sorry wun, i hadnt slept well when i was reading the post, and i guess i confused your post with independent1 as i was replying wacko.gif . sorry.

She is the exception rather than the rule_ she lives in the UK half the time. Tell you anything?

il tell you what miss sherlock holmes, im living here for my education only, as soon as i finish my degree, thats it, im finished here, im off to travel, you know they say travel is the best form of education, and im lucky to have been to all the places i have. been to the ME recently Babs? or are you observing from a couch position??

My point. You are the exception rather than the rule and you don't live completely in Iran_ you don't come from the common woman's station in Iran. Most middle east women can't go to school. blink.gif

Well, Miss Sherlock, I am well-traveled too_ been to europe several times and I think I have traveled a little more than you. cool.gif Travel is the best form of education, I agree. Hopefully, it will broaden your horizons and make you more tolerate of other cultures, you seem to be against us here in the U.S.

I know that their is a price to pay when you travel like that. Good Luck.

hmm well that will be a matter of opinion. i am still waiting for you to tell me about your experiences in the ME??? Congratulations on having been to Europe several times by the way, i am sure having been to Europe really makes you an expert on the ME blink.gif .

Hopefully, it will broaden your horizons and make you more tolerate of other cultures, you seem to be against us here in the U.S.

No Babs, only persons such as yourself who revel in inciting hatred about a region they have never once visited wink2.gif . ive met many americans that i like, you see im open minded, i dont label an entire race or culture because of a few ********, unlike some. original.gif

here you go, though il admit i couldnt find any thing on the HIV thing individually.

And violence in the nation's schools is not occurring in a vacuum. Remember Oklahoma City? How about the Uni-Bomber? Each day brings more news of death: a mother in Chicago kills her three children, a sports hero kills his ex-wife, teenagers toss their newborn in a dumpster, a father injects his child with the aids virus, teens kill each other in drive by shootings, two men drag another man to death behind a truck- death, death all around.

Conclusions: The quality of medical care that elderly patients receive in one UK city, particularly those in nursing homes, is inadequate. We suggest that better coordinated care for these patients would avoid the problems of overuse of unnecessary or harmful drugs, underuse of beneficial drugs, and poor monitoring of chronic disease.

source

CBS) Families turn to nursing homes to give the elderly the care and attention they need, but a congressional report out Monday says 1,600 U.S. nursing homes — nearly one-third — have been cited for abuse, reports CBS News Correspondent Bill Whitaker.

Some 5,283 nursing homes were cited for abuse violations, according to a review of state inspection records requested by Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif. These homes were cited for nearly 9,000 abuse violations from January 1999 to January 2001.

"We found examples of residents being punched, choked or kicked by staff members or other residents," Waxman said.

Complete Coverage

A Culture Of Corruption

Tracking Abuse In Nursing Homes

The Hidden Danger: Neglect

Fighting Elder Abuse

Keeping An Eye On The Caregivers

It's a shocking reality for thousands of older Americans, a trend CBS News first reported last year with the story of Helen Love. She was attacked by a certified nurse's assistant at a Sacramento facility, who was angered she'd soiled herself.

"He choked me and went and broke my neck and broke my wrist," said Love.

Helen Love died two days after her interview. Her assailant got a year in county jail and a CBS News investigation found that three other employees at the same Sacramento facility had been convicted for abuse, which should have barred them from nursing home work.

The nursing home industry agrees on the need for stiffer background checks, but disagrees abuse is widespread.

"The congressman himself said the great majority of long-term care in our nation is excellent. There are people every day that are working very hard to provide that care," said Charles H. Roadman II, president of the American Health Care Association (AHCA), a nursing home trade group that represents 12,000 nonprofit and for-profit centers and homes for the elderly and disabled.

Waxman, the top Democrat on the House Government Reform Committee, which oversees spending and other operations, said Congress should re-estalish an abolished federal law that boosts nursing home spending. The Boren amendment would guarantee that the nation's nearly 17,000 homes do a better job of screening, training and counseling their staff. Roughly 1.5 million seniors live in nursing homes.

Waxman is also introducing a plan that would require criminal background checks on nursing home staff and impose tougher standards on homes with violations.

The AHCA supports a federal criminal background check system for potential employees.

"Recruiting, training and keeping frontline nursing staff are among the most important things we can do to ensure our patients continue to receive quality skilled nursing care," said Roadman.

But center operators said abuse is not the norm in nursing homes and many staff members deserve praise.

"Our patients are like family, and incidents like those described here today are extremely rare," said Sharon Sellers, vice president of operations at Washington Home, a nearly 200-bed center in the District of Columbia.

Bruce Rosenthal, spokesman for the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, said Congress should focus on the troubled centers, rather than create cumbersome standards for all.

"We strongly believe nursing homes that exhibit consistently poor performance should either clean up their act or be put out of business," said Rosenthal, whose group represents 5,600 not-for-profit homes and centers.

Read All About It

A congressional report has found that 5,283 — over 30 percent — of the nursing homes in the U.S. were cited for an abuse violation that had to cause harm between January 1999 and January 2001. Over 2,500 of the violations were serious enough to cause actual harm or to place residents in immediate jeopardy of death or serious injury.

Click here to read the entire report.

The reported abuses were physical, sexual and verbal. All abuse is on the rise, the report said. More than twice as many nursing homes were cited for abuse in 2000 than in 1996. In 1996, 5.9 percent of all nursing homes were cited for an abuse violation during their annual inspections; in 2000, 16 percent of nursing homes were cited.

"It would have been intolerable if we had found a hundred cases of abuse; it is unconscionable that we have foud thousands upon thousands," Waxman said.

The report found that in 1,601 nursing homes - about 1 in 10 - abuse citations were made in serious incidents that either put residents at great risk of harm, injured them or killed them.

For instance, a resident was killed when another resident with a history of abusive behavior picked her up and slammed her into a wall. In another case, a resident's nose was broken by an attendant who hit her. An attendant raped another resident in her room.

It was not clear how many people were abused. In some cases, the report said, an abuse citation referred to a single victim; in others a single case affected several residents.

Investigators said many violations are neither detected nor reported, leading officials to believe the problem is underestimated.

The report also found:

more than 40 percent, or 3,800 abuse violations, were only reported after formal complaints from residents, their families or community advocates.

1,327 homes were cited for more than one abuse violation in the two-year period; 305 homes were cited for three or more abuse violations, and 192 nursing homes were cited for five or more abuse violations.

Family blames New Brighton nursing home for heartache

Donna Halvorsen,  Star Tribune

October 30, 2004 NURSINGHOME1030

 

 

 

Jim Krongard, 74, a retired steelworker with three children and eight grandchildren, was battling brain cancer, but his family thought he was doing well after surgery.

His health seemed to be improving, they said, and he was to start a new cancer drug after his last round of chemotherapy.

But the family's hopes for his recovery were lost when he died from an infection nearly two months after he moved Aug. 3 into Trevilla of New Brighton. State investigators announced Thursday they have cited Trevilla for neglecting his care.

To recuperate after brain surgery, Krongard went into the nursing home just down the road from his New Brighton home so that his wife, June, could visit often. Trevilla also wasn't far from where son Bruce worked, so he visited his father on his lunch hour, sometimes reading to him from the newspaper. Krongard's other sons, Randy and Paul, also were in and out frequently.

But instead of improving his father's health, Randy Krongard said, the home cut his life short.

Investigators said they could not prove that neglect caused Krongard's death, "but certainly he developed problems that we believer were caused" by the neglect, said Arnold Rosenthal, director of the state Office of Health Facilities Complaints.

Said Randy Krongard: "He was in line to receive some special treatment that might have wiped out the brain tumor. He never got that far because he got the [staph infection] and died from it."

State investigators found that Krongard was placed in jeopardy on Aug. 18, the day he was moved from one room into another with a roommate who had a staph infection and oozing sores on one leg. Krongard died on Sept. 28 at United Hospital in St. Paul of that same infection, along with pneumonia, anemia, malnutrition, kidney failure and other problems.

His physician told state investigators that if he had been asked about the move, he would not have given permission. He said staff "have to be careful with infection-control practice" in such circumstances.

Not only did the men share a bathroom, but staff workers sometimes intermingled the two men's belongings, the investigators found. At one point, Krongard was dressed in his roommate's soiled clothes. Another time, said Randy, his father wore his roommate's glasses. "So here's something that came right off [the roommate's] flesh that was contaminated, right to my dad," he said.

He said family members found bloody alcohol swabs and needle cartridges on the floor and bloody bandages on the sink they shared, next to Krongard's toothbrush and razor.
