Half of those on Liverpool
Care Pathway never told

Telegraph [UK], by Laura Donnelly

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/1/2012 5:18:30 PM

The study suggests that in total, around 57,000 patients a year are dying in NHS hospitals without being told that efforts to keep them alive have been stopped. It also reveals that thousands of dying patients have been left to suffer in pain, with no attempt to keep them comfortable while drugs were administered. Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary, last night described the disclosures from records held by 178 NHS hospitals as "totally unacceptable". He said the failure to consult patients would now be examined by an independent inquiry, which will also look at payments made to hospitals for

Comments:
That hospitals were paid to condemn to a painful death a prescribed number of people is so abhorrent I can´t find polite verbiage to describe this version of death panels. It seems that hospitals kept meticulous records of the Liverpool Care Pathway´s deliberate deaths too, too, just like the Nazis did.

This is ghastly, and a warning of what is to come with Obamacare. Hospitals have a financial incentive to not care for patients.

We have had in this country laws requiring that patients have access to their health records. Do patients in the UK have those same rights? If so, they should all start demanding to see all their records.

The National Health system in the UK started out with all the bright and shiny messages about how they can do so much for so many and especially help those who are in the country far from good facilities. I watch short films all the time in SHORTSHD and they show all the old british propaganda films from the 20´s to the 70´s. They used the same arguments the Dems use for Obamacare. Now, some 70 years later, the system is not only broken but has become worse than Soylent Green. At least in SG, people didn´t suffer unnecessarily at the end. We need to find a way to stop Zerocare before it goes too far.

Buy all the poppy crop from Afghanistan and, at least, keep the dying comfortable.

We shoot horses rather than let them suffer.

God save us from those who care deeply and know better.

Why should the little people be told anything? Do we deserve to know about Benghazi? Are we asked if we want to send billions to Egypt and the Palis to carry out and spread Sharia? Did it matter to Congress that the majority of the citizenry here were opposed to obamacare? It is but a short step to keeping the plans for one´s impending death a government secret.

I went searching for statistics and gave up because the UK system is sooo opaque. The 130,000 per year is 0.2% of their total population.

However I found some statistics in the US. Every year 136.1 million make an emergency department visit which represents 45.1% of the population. 17.1 million require admission and 2.2 million require admission to critical care. Percentage wise, 5.65% of the US population are admitted from emergency and 0.72% admitted to critical care.

Roughly 3.5% of the admissions from emergency room would have to be killed by the protocol or 28% of the critical care admissions would be needed to kill off 0.2% of our population each year.

When it comes here, it will be hailed as enlightened, humane and progressive. It will be sold to us as a "right". Those who object to the program will be lambasted for trying to "impose their morality" --- and the massive, unconsenting killing program iself will have a label that involves some combination of the words "Compassion", "Care", and "Choice".

Sue Townsend was working on a new Adrian Mole novel when she died, with the working title of Pandora’s Box. The book was due for publication this autumn and Townsend had sent “a few wonderful pages” to her editor, Louise Moore, earlier this year. It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

Bill Clinton would do just about anything for daughter Chelsea--and it seems to extend to stumping for her mother-in-law, a Congressional candidate embroiled in a scandal over the use of charitable funds to feather her own nest. The former president sang the praises of Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, the mother of Chelsea’s husband Marc Mezvinsky, at a $5,000-a-pop private VIP fund-raiser on her behalf held today at the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia. An audience of 100 paid $1,000 each for the privilege of hearing President Clinton extoll the political virtues of Margolies. Another 50 donors paid $5,000 to get their

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

The House Oversight Committee voted Thursday to refer a ´Contempt of Congress´ vote on former IRS official Lois Lerner to the full House of Representatives. [Snip] In May 2013 and March 2014, Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer Oversight members´ questions about a plan she allegedly led to subject right-wing groups to years of intrusive questions before they could claim a special tax-exempt status. Liberal applicants were quickly green-lighted. A visibly angry South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy provided the biggest rhetorical fireworks on Thursday, demanding that Democrats join with the GOP in approving the resolution. None

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that 7.5 million Americans had enrolled in Obamacare insurance coverage by the time the dust settled on April 1, but reused to tell senators how many of them were already covered before the law took full effect. The question is an important one: Republicans claim that most of those who signed up are Americans who lost their existing policies in 2013 because they didn´t meet the Affordable Care Act´s strict and sometimes bewildering minimum standards. President Barack Obama promised that his signature insurance overhaul law would dramatically reduce the ranks of the

House Speaker John Boehner blasted Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday for suggesting that Republicans only attack him because he´s black. ´There is no issue of race here,´ he told a reporter during his weekly press briefing on Capitol Hill. Holder went off-script Wednesday during a speech to Al Sharpton´s National Action Network, slammed Republicans for consistently attacking him and Barack Obama because they are the first African-Americans to hold their jobs. ´What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?´ he said, alluding to his status as the only African-American ever to hold that post.

One week ago, President Obama was celebrating. 7.1 million Americans had signed up to his landmark law. Today however, it’s the same old story. Once again, Obamacare is critical. The latest crisis? For Americans who don’t yet possess health insurance, the US health care market is now effectively on lockdown until the year’s end. Yes, you heard that right. [Snip] The flowing narrative is all too clear--didn’t sign up by the President’s shifting deadlines? Take a hike. This latest incident speaks volumes about Obamacare--a law that was born in arrogant partisanship and is now defined by utter absurdity.

Republicans on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee won a vote Wednesday demanding the Justice Department criminally prosecute Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of a scheme to slow-walk tax-exempt applications from conservative groups. They claim she committed three federal crimes punishable by a total of 11 years in prison. The panel voted 23-14, along party lines, to approve a letter instructing Attorney General Eric Holder to charge Lerner and prosecute her in court. The Justice Department has said it already has its own investigation into the conduct of Lerner and other Obama administration officials in what

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
