The Jaws of Health Care
Sorry; the Joys. Yes, that's it: the joys.
Well, at least it's good for a laff.
Accessing Your EHR - eHealth Ontario | It's Working For You
It's also kind of like your own private charity work, helping to raise the income status of some needy entrepeneurs:
CBC: 2018 - Thousands of patient records held for ransom in Ontario home care data breach
And that wasn't new news at the time. The following is American, but all you have to do is substitute SIN and OHIP for Social Security and Policy Number.
NetStandard: 2016 - Your medical records are worth more to hackers than your credit card.
Here's more recent info for Canada:
CBC: Oct 2019 - Dozens of patient records stolen from Winnipeg's Children's Hospital
Personal information of 54 youths taken from locked cabinet in hospital's reception area
The CBC usually gets tons of comments but, in this case, readers must have been shocked into silence -- all except for one W.T. Primrose who hit the nail hilariously on the head:
And then there's me. I saw a notice on the wall of the elevator in my apartment building that sounded really good: Paramedics are starting a free clinic in your building where you can get your blood pressure checked, among other things (blood sugar, flu shots) ....
Hey! I thought; I can find out what their requirements are for a Do Not Resuscitate notice that I could keep visible should they ever be called by me or on my behalf -- and also get my blood pressure checked so my dentist can feel more confident about my overall medical condition.
No such luck. Turns out, if your heart has stopped, paramedics will paddle you. It's up to hospital personnel to honour a DNR request. And it also turns out there's no way I can get my blood pressure checked by a paramedic, for what I consider to be a solid reason:
The guy held up his IPad for all to see and patted it lovingly while proudly announcing that "All your information will be recorded here so that it can be shared with medical personnel".
I thought at first that the joke was on me, but when I told him I haven't seen a doctor for over 20 years, and he asked why, I said, "Because they made me sick."
When I turned around to go back to my seat, I saw that my fellow inmates, seniors who live in my building, had cracked up laughing as if they couldn't stop - and quite approvingly I might add.
I'm thinking I should give up blogging and do stand-up. It might be easier on my ticker.
So, then I paid money at a drug store for a little blood pressure cuff that fits on your wrist, but I can't get it to work. It tries too hard to be tecky, insisting on retaining the information for future reference, but then losing the formatting before I can even get to the BP check. C'est la vie.
At least my dentist, reluctantly, takes my word that I'm fit as a fiddle. What's that joke? -- oh yeah, I'm in really good shape for the shape I'm in.
Anyway, at least people are able to make easy money off our med records and, as the coming Christmas warms our hearts with good cheer, it's nice to know of a special way that one can contribute to the overall wealth of needy entrepreneurs.
Here's a DuckDuckGo list of articles on "medical mistakes in Canada", but it doesn't include the biggest mistake: exposing our personal info to criminals, more of which can be found here.
