This is a big reason we can’t get health care

18 May

I found one of the real reasons why I couldn’t get medical care.  Healthcare professionals are not doing their jobs as I have repeatedly written about.  Please take a look at the following news clip.  I was contacted by someone close to my situation and was advised of news release today.

It’s rare that physicians and this type of thing make the news in Ohio.  It’s usually a cover-up.   This was my family physician from 1992-2008.  I thought she was good, but than again I had a brain injury and trusted her.  Professional boundaries isn’t the only thing that was crossed, in this case or my situation.

In 2008 I left the State of Ohio to receive healthcare and I got medical care and improved!  I haven’t addressed what all was happening on my blog but will at a later date.

My last visit with this physician we were asked “What is the source of your angst?”  Take a look at this news release.

So do I contact the State Investigators? What do you think? How can we educate people like this about brain injuries?

    Edie, becoming involved in reporting Dr. Weidman’s failures with you could take up take lots of your time and energy. Is this how you want to spend the time and energy you have? If so, pray about speaking to the investigators.
    Prayers for you!

      Maria, Thank you for your insight of where I want to spend my energy and time. Always something I need to think about. It’s not a shock at all that this is probably only the beginning of unraveling horrific issues with healthcare, specific my physicians. This happens much more frequently than ever reported, but I’m sure many have been under the watchful eye since at least 2007 for other reasons pertaining to my situation not yet discussed. Hence, our move to Michigan and away from evil.

      In my opinion, I believe this was just an incidental finding. Usually it’s not publicized. At least I’m putting the truth out their on this blog and I feel good about finally speaking out and helping others in the process. The post I just put out this past Monday is directly related, as that neuropsychologist referred me to her and they are friends and so is the entire group. As I’ve said before, it’s about taking care of your colleagues, not the patients!…It’s my moral and ethical responsibility as a human being, mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, acquaintance, and nurse to advocate for patients and keep them healthy and safe. THERE ARE GOOD HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS in America’s system. With these types of situations how do you know who’s good or who isn’t? I thought they were good until 2007. How do you trust? I trust God! Blessing, Edie

        Dear Edie, I’m beginning to understand what happened better, and wouldn’t give you advice about what to do. I’m ignorant about things like this. You know what to do in praying, in focusing your time and energy, and in getting support from friends and family and those in the Healthcare professions who can understand your history better.

        It’s good for me to follow. I’m glad I do. Bless you! Keep praying! Keep doing what you know is right!

        Honestly, this is like a fiction book! I wish it were! I appreciate your advice, every bit helps. I need to look at all angles even from those that don’t have the complete history. That helps me make good decisions.

    Maria, I want to say that I always enjoy your input related to Edie’s many posts. Because I know the whole story I have to say that Edie needs to get to the authorities ASAP. I don’t want to spill the beans but Amy is only one of five doctors that were friends and referring Edie to each other in medicine. One even wrote a fake letter to get rehab and when she arrived at the facility they did indeed acknowledge it was a fake letter. How would you like to be followed by “Men in Black”? Gone to emergency rooms with two diagnoses, either diagnosis was life threatening and then released from the hospital? All of these doctors were directly related to Dr. Amy and the lack of care Edie received. This is such a twisted story as to be almost unbelievable. Edie is doing such an awesome job of breaking her story down into bits and pieces for easier understanding.
    If you read her Monday 5/14 blog and then what came out last night it can only be explained as divine intervention. Edie’s story will be told one way or another and these physicians need to held accountable. By the way, an unrelated doctor stated that one of the involved physicians would self-destruct within 5 yrs., it only took 2 yrs. and he is no longer in the Cleveland, Hmmmm.

      I’ve heard some of the wonderful comments about Dr. Amy. She made many POOR JUDGEMENT errors in the sexual scandal alone, if you click on and read the detailed report from the state investigators inside this article it’s hard to believe she was a practicing physician. She was fantastic with my mother-in-law, but I even questioned things with her. This is a physician that is definitely COMPROMISED IN HER THOUGHTS, and she’s not the only one. I must say she is a very likable, kind, gentle, friendly and compassionate person. Not trustworthy. The state board did punish her and it will be up to them whether patients will ever be safe. I totally agree with their rationale.

      There were more than 12 physicians directly involved (not sure how many in total) in my situation and big time violation of HIPAA that tore our family apart all with false information. This has been such a sick game “mind games” that should never be played but I didn’t succumb to their “mind games” … but it nearly cost my life on several occasions. I survived with CPR twice in 2007 & 2008 while these mind games continued! It wasn’t my time yet. The good thing, I was not well enough to figure out what was going on at the time. I knew something was wrong, but it took time and energy to put it all together. Even a well person would never figure out something as twisted as this was. Who thinks that way anyway? Only through my detailed notes, medical records, police reports and interviews, media, and small segments of time did we find out and put this puzzle together. I feared for my life and rightfully so and did not return to Ohio for 9 months, only after starting medical care out-of-state. It makes my head spin just thinking about it. I refuse to live in fear. I just want to live life.

      I’ll turn over all my documentation in a heartbeat…if it means saving others from this trauma. Psychiatrists (dx. Organic brain syndrome secondary to traumatic brain injury) keep excellent notes and they tried to pull the wrong medical doctor in with the above-mentioned group. There are plenty of professionals that know the facts, and were not involved. In the meantime, I will continue to put my story out and help others along the way. Remember to laugh!…whether it’s funny or not it’s so far fetched all you can do is LAUGH! I only wish it were delusional!

        The bad stuff, so much bad stuff, proves that the Bible is right. People sin. It’s not just ‘mistakes’ we make. They do wrong, and the more they do wrong and hurt others, the more complicated things get, so that people have the added strain of thinking something’s wrong with them, or their mind, etcetera. Thank God that you are willing to work so others (all of us) will be safer!
        In His love,

        Maria, You are right. There’s a big difference between “mistakes” and sins. I’m surprising all these people involved … actually the real physician and healer is why I am here on earth. I have prayed for strength to see me through, or to end suffering if that is what I needed to do. I not only strength, I am now getting superb care from the most brilliant mind in medicine and my health improved giving me significant time and energy to help others. Thank the Lord someone helped! I’m blessed. Edie

      Kathy, thanks for stepping in to help me understand things better, and for being kind to me. Whatever Edie decides to do, it makes me glad to know that she has friends and family who know the whole story and support her fully. You’re right, it sounds like the doctors should be called to account for their actions by those who have legal oversight of them. If those authorities fail to set things right, we know that the Lord will. May He bless you as you follow Him in being a true friend!

        This news was shocking to both of us when another called to report what they saw. The situation wasn’t shocking, but the fact they put it in the news was. The internet has made it so easy to find and read about things. I was informed there was nothing in the Cleveland, Ohio local papers. If I didn’t have watchful, truthful and faithful friends I don’t know where I’d be. Right now in our new home we have no television…and I’m loving it!
