--#ReveraAbuseDeath--------Let me tell you a story---Let me tell you a story. But while you wait for me to write the story of my sister's experiences in the long term care system in Alberta let me tell you another family's story. Here is Lori's story of hell in the continuing care system in Ontario which much like Alberta has a government with no interest-no oversight-no autopsies but a ton of regulations. http://www.mcknights.com/…/family-pushing-f…/article/567211/ October 20, 2016 Family pushing for class action lawsuit against provider Revera The family of a resident who died following a stay at a Canadian nursing home is hoping others will join in a $200 million lawsuit against a provider. Ross Jones died of “sepsis and suspected pneumonia” in 2011 after an 11-month stay at Main Street Terrace in Toronto, according to the suit announced by his daughter, Lori DeKervor, on Thursday. The complaint claims Jones suffered from dehydration and malnutrition, and had a pressure ulcer that went untreated and became infected. "He died a painful 13th century death, while being looked after by a giant business entity that is making a ton of money on the basis of its promise to deliver reliable, professional health care to our parents," DeKervor said in a press release. The suit asks for $200 million in damages for DeKervor and any future complainants from provider Revera, which operates nearly 80 long-term care facilities and almost 130 retirement communities across Canada. The complaint also alleges the company conducted inadequate investigations into complaints, and failed to meet government care standards. While Jones' daughter is the only complainant currently listed in the suit, the family's attorney, Amani Oakley, believes more will join. "We found quite a number of instances of cases of Revera residents being injured, being left unattended, being allowed to fall,” Oakley told CBC News. John Beaney, spokesman for Revera, said the company can't comment on specifics of the suit, but that it believes the case has no merit and plans to defend itself in court. “We provide care to lots of individuals, often at the end of their lives and families are part of that process,” Beaney told the Toronto Star. “When a resident passes away it is often the result of a combination of factors. It is not simple … and this can often make it very difficult for their loved ones.” Twenty-four Revera facilities were acquired by United States-based Genesis HealthCare in a $240 million deal last year.

Just now
I haven't done a thing on the lawsuit which sits like a crab sunning itself on the floor of the writing room. Soon I will go to court and talk about the problems I have encountered in getting services for my sister. Soon I will stand before the judge and the people of Alberta to speak about the lack of interest in my sister's problem by Alberta Health, AHS, Covenant Health and the continuing care system. Soon all of you will get a transcript of the court proceedings so you can see the handicapped citizen left to suffer for years while the system fiddled. Let me tell you a story. This is the story of money we give to government and the lack of services at the end of the business of taxation. It's all about entitlements of oil monarchs, the people left like dogs chained to the requirements of taxes and the most vulnerable left without oversight by a system gone haywire.
Let me tell you a story.

Just now
I have been doing taxes.
It makes me feel as if we are giving away our money to a bunch of users in government.
In between the taxes I have been looking for a summer job for younger boy. I am looking for a job for him as he is madly trying to complete his projects for the end of the year requirements.
Mum did not come over. I went for the walk and saw (just in our neighbourhood) four cars slip slide and that was that. No outing to get folks. Mum will come over when it is safe out.
I did not get Rebecca either. I told Sue to call the Villa and tell them about the skating rink conditions of the roads.
I leave the snow cleaning until tomorrow. I don't want to risk a problem with Helva sliding on the roads. She is my first new car after the baby minivan which is now almost 17 years old I think.
In any case all I did was the walk. I used my ski poles that I got at a garage sale for a buck a piece. The ski poles are to prevent injury when I go sliding. I had a few falls and now i use ski poles.
The taxes are very boring. Also I am missing some forms that I did not get. I will phone on Monday when the holiday is over.
I have been doing taxes all day. My head feels corrupted. I will do taxes tomorrow. Maybe the roads will be safe to bring mum and Rebecca over for a visit. I don't know. At least younger boy got to apply for two jobs. I found another he can attempt but we can only get him to apply for a few jobs at a time since his project takes 99.9% of this life.
I haven't done a thing on the lawsuit which sits like a crab sunning itself on the floor of the writing room. Soon I will go to court and talk about the problems I have encountered in getting services for my sister. Soon I will stand before the judge and the people of Alberta to speak about the lack of interest in my sister's problem by Alberta Health, AHS, Covenant Health and the continuing care system. Soon all of you will get a transcript of the court proceedings so you can see the handicapped citizen left to suffer for years while the system fiddled. Let me tell you a story. This is the story of money we give to government and the lack of services at the end of the business of taxation. It's all about entitlements of oil monarchs, the people left like dogs chained to the requirements of taxes and the most vulnerable left without oversight by a system gone haywire.
Let me tell you a story.
But while you wait for me to write the story of my sister's experiences in the long term care system in Alberta let me tell you another family's story.
Here is Lori's story of hell in the continuing care system in Ontario which much like Alberta has a government with no interest-no oversight-no autopsies but a ton of regulations.

Family pushing for class action lawsuit against provider Revera
The family of a resident who died following a stay at a Canadian nursing home is hoping others will join in a $200 million lawsuit against a provider.
Ross Jones died of “sepsis and suspected pneumonia” in 2011 after an 11-month stay at Main Street Terrace in Toronto, according to the suit announced by his daughter, Lori DeKervor, on Thursday. The complaint claims Jones suffered from dehydration and malnutrition, and had a pressure ulcer that went untreated and became infected.
"He died a painful 13th century death, while being looked after by a giant business entity that is making a ton of money on the basis of its promise to deliver reliable, professional health care to our parents," DeKervor said in a press release.
The suit asks for $200 million in damages for DeKervor and any future complainants from provider Revera, which operates nearly 80 long-term care facilities and almost 130 retirement communities across Canada. The complaint also alleges the company conducted inadequate investigations into complaints, and failed to meet government care standards.
While Jones' daughter is the only complainant currently listed in the suit, the family's attorney, Amani Oakley, believes more will join.
"We found quite a number of instances of cases of Revera residents being injured, being left unattended, being allowed to fall,” Oakley told CBC News.
John Beaney, spokesman for Revera, said the company can't comment on specifics of the suit, but that it believes the case has no merit and plans to defend itself in court.
“We provide care to lots of individuals, often at the end of their lives and families are part of that process,” Beaney told the Toronto Star. “When a resident passes away it is often the result of a combination of factors. It is not simple … and this can often make it very difficult for their loved ones.”
Twenty-four Revera facilities were acquired by United States-based Genesis HealthCare in a $240 million deal last year.
