Avoidable medical errors are the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. Adverse effects from medications are the leading medical error.
The number of people who survive the adverse side effects of a prescribed medication with a seriously diminished quality of life is legion.
I am member of this legion, and am now well aware that most physicians do not recognize adverse effects from the medications that they prescribe. That most physicians fail (or refuse) to report the reactions that they observe and that as a result, the medical system does not count the members of my cohort.
No medical remedy is offered;
there is no change in medical practice;
all legal avenues are closed;
there is no room for improvement.
The British Columbia Medical System sheds its liabilities like a snake, downloading costs and losses on the basis of relationship onto loved ones as part of the deductible for healthcare in British Columbia.
As a result of their ignorance of the side effects of the medications that they prescribe, doctors prescribe new medications and treatments that create uncounted costs to the Medical Service Plan of British Columbia.
In my case I would like to know how much money the Medical Services Plan of British Columbia has spent treating the adverse side effects of medication that I took as prescribed for a decade.
No one can afford this type of healthcare.
Help us, Obi Wan Kenobi! You’re our only hope!
