Hypocrite’s Oath: Over Paid And Above The Law

Video shows nurses laughing as dying WWII vet calls for help

Hidden camera footage recently made public revealed a decorated World War II veteran died after fighting for air while a pair of nurses laughed in front of him.

James Dempsey on Feb. 27, 2014, repeatedly called out to staff members at Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation before he fell unconscious, gasping for air all the while.

Nursing home staff found him unresponsive just before 5:30 a.m. and it took them nearly an hour to call 911, according to state records obtained by WXIA.

Dempsey’s family, who sued the facility in 2014, declined to comment, citing a settlement with the nursing home.

Former nursing supervisor Wanda Nuckles testified during the trial that she rushed to the 89-year-old veteran’s room when she learned he’d stopped breathing and performed chest compressions until help arrived.

Nuckles did not know she’d been filmed at the time and the clip directly contradicts her account, which she said was just “an honest mistake.”

Instead, the footage shows nursing staff repeatedly start and stop Dempsey’s chest compressions.

When the responding nurses struggled to get Dempsey’s oxygen machine to start, Nuckles can be heard laughing with them in the background.

“Ma’am was there something funny at the time?”  Mike Prieto, the attorney for Dempsey’s family, questioned.

She responded: “I can’t even remember all that, as you can see.”

Retired nursing professor Elaine Harris identified several violations, including failure to respond, failure to assess and failure to act.

“In 43 years of nursing, I have never seen such disregard for human life in a health care setting,” she told the news station.

Attorneys representing the Atlanta nursing home attempted to block WXIA from releasing the footage, but in the end dropped its appeal with the Georgia State Supreme Court.

Both Nuckles and another nurse were fired, but not until nearly a year after the incident.  And they only just turned in their licenses in September — nearly three years after Dempsey’s death.

A spokesperson for the Georgia Board of Nursing could not confirm when the state became aware of the video, but the board’s action did come on the heels of receiving a link to the video.

A spokesperson for the nursing home, owned by Sava Senior Care, in a statement wrote they were “saddened by the events which occurred three years ago” before going on to note it has “new leadership and the leadership team and the staff have worked very diligently to improve quality care and the quality of life for our residents.”

Lies And The Hypocrite’s Oath

My Brother’s Keeper

Playing GOD While Killing Your Neighbor

I turned the knob and the door cracked open, suddenly the all too familiar smell was all around me, and on me.  As I finished opening the door, the smell of my 3rd son drew closer around me, holding to me tightly.

The next afternoon I turned the knob, and as I opened the door and held it, my Mother looked  into my eyes and nodded, then my Niece did also, as they proceeded into the big room, moving to the chairs I had marked with my eyes.

The table was filled with gamblers, all holding the winning hand, including the nurse at the far end of the table; she knew her part by heart, and in fact was certain of an academy award, until she looked into the eyes she knew so well….

These people had lied to me since the day before, and evidently thought we were dumb as dirt.  Never in my life had I ever imagined the day when the people I respected so much would instead prove to be as low as the most evil criminals.

I listened as each one at the table had their say, then, while slowly standing up, I looked from one, to the next in turn all around the table.  I explained the difference in  “no activity” with a swollen head, and a “brain stem test”, then I looked into each set of eyes, and said NO ONE WILL BE TURNING MY SON’S VENTILATOR OFF TODAY, NOR EVER.

My Brother called me 3 years ago, and told me to hurry.  When I got to the place, he met me at the door, and we went to the young Lady’s room.

Nurses were all standing around staring at the relative, as my Brother asked my opinion.  I said heroin????  NO WAY, maybe PCP, but you remember when I was in the hospital and went out of my head 2 different times????  He said that’s why I called you.

When I said, “considering how hard she fell when she was blind-sided, I would have to believe bone marrow was in her system and going to her brain, but apparently she didn’t break nothing”.  The nurses looked like I had slapped them.

These people failed to X-Ray this young Lady, missed a broken hip, then left the illicit drugs misdiagnosis on her record to cover their incompetence.  The sad part of this is that she had been in the hospital for nearly 3 full days.

My Little Brother was the victim of a poorly trained  employee at Insurance Market Place.  We got their attention by contacting Our Elected Officials.

However, while filing an appeal, I had to rush My Brother to the ER. Later he was diagnosed with pancreatitis, but sent home without a Doctor doing anything.

To say he was in agony, is like saying a blow torch is warm, because Our Circle on Google had told me so.  After over a month, we won his appeal, and he was checked into Parkland Hospital, where he stayed for 4 days then released.

All this time He has been losing weight, and still hurting badly almost all the time.

This week I went with him to his appointments, before Chemo, and for whatever reason, between our questions, it fell out of these people’s mouth that he hasn’t been getting any real treatment due to the drugs in his system.

I believe my Brother got their attention by telling them between Parkland Hospital and Insurance Market Place, they were responsible for him losing nearly 40 lbs and everything else, plus knowing the pain he was in, yet not prescribing him anything.

But now I don’t mind telling everyone that I got my Brother the medicine for pain.  I am unable to take anything like this and muscle relaxers, so I didn’t know….

I’m sorry Little Brother, and I have to admit this to all of you, I knew how he was hurting, and I knew his stress and depression first hand, yet I made him even more miserable because I kept thinking I was going to go wake him up one day and he wasn’t going to wake up.

SO, this is for all of you….

First, I checked if anything had turned up on the VA Hospital Drug Thefts, and oddly enough nothing has been posted since roughly the end of May.

BUT, I did come across some very interesting facts:

Doctors and Nurses are more likely than other occupations to form a substance addiction.

Studies suggest that Medical Professionals are more likely to misuse prescription drugs than their patients.

Substance Abuse is grossly unreported in medical community by an estimated 50% and most likely much higher.

*15% of all physicians and nurses will experience substance abuse issues, although this number could quiet possibly be as much as 50% higher

**20% of all physicians and nurses will experience substance abuse issues, although this number could quiet possibly be more than 50% higher

NC Children Found Chained In Home

Parents accused of chaining kids inside
north Charlotte home

CHARLOTTE, NC  –  A mother and father have been arrested after police say they chained their children around their wrists and waists inside their north Charlotte home.

Melissa Gonzalez-Guzman and Felipe Gonzalez-Guzman have been arrested and charged with 15 counts of false imprisonment and 15 counts of felony child abuse.  They are in the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.

“The phone call that came in anonymously to the Department of Social Services worked,” said Lt. Thomas Barry with CMPD.

According to a warrant obtained by NBC Charlotte, the Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services and Youth and Family Services received an anonymous call on July 18 that four children were being chained to their beds and locked in their room by their mother and her boyfriend at a home in the 4800 block of Statesville Road.

The warrant also states that police seized several metal chains and that they found pictures in the mother’s phone, “depicting four children with linked chains around their wrist and waist.  The Officer observed one picture of what appeared to be an autistic 3-year-old child chained to a chair.”

The warrant says two of the children had bruised wrists and ankles, consistent with being kept in chains.

“Anytime you hear of the details that are listed in the search warrant, it makes you pause,” said Lt. Barry.  “The long-term impact of being treated that way is difficult,” he explained.

Mark Butler, a former owner of the Statesville Road home, rented the house to the Gonzalez-Guzman family six months ago.

“They’re beautiful little children,” he said. “I’m in the office and they will walk by and say, ‘Hi Mark,'” Butler recalled.

He says he had no reason to believe the children were anything other than well cared for.

“The mother seemed to be a good caretaker because she kept other people’s children, and I think she took care of elderly people,” Butler explained.

His reaction to the allegations that the parents chained the children up, “That’s horror to me, but that’s shocking, just shocking to me,” he said.  “I’ve been in the home multiple times and I’ve never seen that.”

The children are now in the custody of family members, according to CMPD, and have been referred to Pat’s Place for additional services.

According to neighbors, the parents recently had another baby in June.  There is no word on where that baby is located.

NBC Charlotte reached out to DSS to see if the Gonzalez-Guzmans had been investigated for child abuse in the past.  We were told DSS does not release this information due to state law.  NBC Charlotte has filed a Freedom of Information Request to obtain more information about this case and the parents.

THE WHIP

Bullying is wrong, and never forgotten.

THE WHIP

Strange how so long ago is so easily forgotten….

Every television station reporting the unprovoked attack,

The Money-Biased Media performing with each crack of Money’s whip,

Not Fracking Today!!!!

BUT RACISM REARING IT’s UGLY HEAD!!!!

Obama telling of the evil guns,

The Stupid Lemmings follow along and take up the chant,

STOP RACISM AND THE EVIL GUNS!!!!

No one with guts to tell the story,

But not this day….

For the story was told,

OF EACH BULLYING INJUSTICE,

As the gun tracked toward another,

Their cries for forgiveness too late,

YEARS TOO LATE,

FOR ALL THE TEARS,

CAUSED BY THE EVIL IN THEIR HEARTS,

AND THE EVIL IN THEIR WORDS,

SO LONG AGO.

But the evil media,

Didn’t record the last dying words,

For the script was already written,

By the MONEY THAT HOLDs THE WHIP.
