Nashua, NH Hospital Puts Patient's on Hospice/Palliative Care ILLEGALLY

https://www.medicare.gov/coverage/hospice-and-respite-care.html

This is how it's "Supposed" to work, but at this one Nashua Hospital be forewarned. It Doesn't!
You can get hospice care if you have Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) AND meet all of these conditions:
  • Your hospice doctor and your regular doctor or nurse practitioner (if you have one) certify that you’re terminally ill (you're expected to live 6 months or less).
  • You accept palliative care (for comfort) instead of care to cure your illness.
  • You sign a statement choosing hospice care instead of other Medicare-covered treatments for your terminal illness and related conditions.
Only your hospice doctor and your regular doctor or nurse practitioner (if you have one) can certify that you’re terminally ill and have a life expectancy of 6 months or less.
This is the scenario I witnessed:
First and foremost, you REFUSE Hospice/Palliative Care when it's offered.You don't sign ANY contracts. Even when coerced, you and your loved ones adamantly REFUSE. The patient states he doesn't want to die. He states he wants treatment. Well guess what? He's put on Palliative Care any way. He and his family never told. A man in a wheelchair comes to visit the patient in his Hospital room, never telling the patient who he is. His spouse ask's the Nurses who this man is. They state he's a Doctor, never bothering to mention that he's a Palliative Care Doctor. 
This Doctor start's visiting almost daily, jacking up the morphine dosage. Pretty soon the patient only sleeps. Every time he wakes up, he's given more morphine until the dosage hit's 225 mgs and the patient doesn't even know whether he's in pain or not. This Hospital has one GOOD Hospitalist who came in to see the patient and practically threw the Palliative Care Dr. out when he realized the patient was overdosed. He threw the Palliative Care Dr. off the case and took over himself.
Secondly, your own Doctor is never even contacted or consulted, so how can she certify you only have 6 month's or less to live? Even the Oncology Dr. gave him one year or more, not 6 months. 
This same Hospital performed daily lab tests, but never said a word on what they found. Never giving treatment or antibiotics for anything. If the patients family never obtained his Medical file, they never would have known that he had other illnesses which caused all the symptoms he had, but he was never treated for any of them. Hospice/Palliative Care only want to drug the patient with Morphine and let them die. This man stressed the fact he wanted treatment and didn't want to die. He was UNKNOWINGLY, ILLEGALLY forced into Palliative Care against his and his family's will.
The year or more to live that he was given in January 2017, ended up being less than three months because he contracted Sepsis in the Hospital. Sepsis that a Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner denied him antibiotics to treat. A Nurse Practitioner who had no business in the patients care, or should I say the care he never got? He had  pressure sores  on his back, along with never being treated with antibiotics for an infection he got after a bronchoscopy/biopsy at the same Hospital.
Palliative Care is for people who are dying and want to die. This patient was the love of my life, my Husband. He was NOT dying and he wanted to live and was denied life saving treatment by this Nashua Hospital. He would be alive today if Palliative Care wasn't ILLEGALLY thrown at him without his and his familiy's knowledge and acceptance!!!

Forcing Unknowing Patients into Palliative Care Against Their Will Causes Unwanted, Untimely Deaths! Negligent Homicide???

Palliative Care is for people who WANT to die. Not people who don't. When a patient refuses Palliative care, shouldn't he be allowed his say? From all the research I've been doing, I've found that Doctor's can NOT force patients into Palliative care or Hospice. So why are they getting away with it? Why is this the norm at a local Nashua Hospital? A patient refuses Palliative Care because in his heart, he knows he is NOT dying. And IF he were treated for the illnesses he had, he wouldn't have died!
How about the patient who is admitted for weakness? The Oncologist states he will be admitted for a short time to regain his strength to get Cancer treatment, (for UNPROVEN Cancer). So how in the world can a patient regain his strength when a different Doctor, a Hospitalist recruits Palliative Care to the unknowing patient? No-one ever letting on that this Doctor is Palliative Care. The Palliative Care Doctor overdoses the patient with morphine so the patient can no longer do anything but sleep.
Lab tests are a daily routine and other illnesses are recognized, but the patient nor the family are ever told. No treatment ever given for any of the illnesses, yet Palliative Care Doctor's are "Supposed" to treat with medication and antibiotics. Not just morphine! Medication and antibiotics that WOULD have helped the patient regain his strength. The illnesses recognized, had anyone been reading the lab reports cause weakness, fatigue, chest pains and loss of appetite and breathing difficulty.
The Palliative Care idiots refuse feeding tubes and are aware of medications to get patients eating regularly, but they just don't bother trying to help the patient who they "Think" may have Cancer. The family members plead for their loved ones to be treated, but the Palliative Care idiots just want to kill them off.
Instead of more testing, other than Pet Scans which do NOT clearly show Cancer, but only show that it might be or it might not be Cancer. Pet Scans are many times false, due to infections, inflammation, diabetes and many other reasons. Just as the Police focus in on one person when a crime is committed, Doctors do the same thing. They don't bother checking in to all other reasons for the patients symptoms. Then why do lab tests daily if they aren't even going to treat what they find? MEDICARE FRAUD!
When a patient and his family REFUSE Palliative Care, but Palliative Care is unknowingly forced on them, they SHOULD be charged with Negligent Homicide! How many more patients and families are they doing this to? How many are contracting infections at these Hospitals and being denied lifesaving antibiotics? Who gave Palliative Care the right to say who lives or dies? Palliative Care is LEGAL Euthanasia and is killing off our loved ones senselessly, needlessly! It's time to hold these Doctor's of Death accountable!

Happy 12th Birthday Isabella, My Stolen at Birth Granddaughter



Happy Birthday Isabella. We thought you'd be home by now seeing as you WERE taken and adopted out ILLEGALLY. Twelve long years fighting for your return.

I hope you had a good Birthday. Your real family loves and misses you. Some day I hope to see you again. If not, just know I never stopped loving you or fighting for your return.

Common Childbirth Practice Could Lead to Later False Diagnosis of Shaken Baby Syndrome

Common Childbirth Practice Could Lead to Later False Diagnosis of Shaken Baby Syndrome:

Pitocin is one of the most commonly used drugs in childbirth, given to the majority of birthing women to either induce or augment (speed up) labor.
Cytotec is also used by many doctors to induce labor.
As common as they are, they are not without significant risks to both mother and baby.
These are known side effects that are rarely, if ever, told to parents. The risks to the baby include:
  • retinal hemorrhage
  • brain hemorrhage, or brain bleeding
  • neonatal jaundice
  • brain damage, including Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy
  • lower APGAR scores at 5 minutes
  • neonatal seizures
  • death

Don't Bother filing complaints with Livanta BFCC-QIO-Waste of time and Effort

Livanta BFCC-QIO:

Don't even waste your time. They only go by the Fairy Tale Medical records the Hospitals provide. Not the Truth! They don't listen to the patient or family member's. Only the lies of the Hospital. This is how bad our Healthcare system is now. The standard of care is so low no wonder so many are dying!

Now I know why the Hospital told me to file a complaint with Livanta, even though I already had. Because they knew Livanta would side with them, not the patient's they murder!
Where do we get justice these day's for our murdered loved ones?

Beneficiary and Family Centered Care
Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC-QIO)

here are two kinds of QIOs. BFCC-QIOs, like Livanta, review appeals and complaints about health care for Medicare patients.

Sepsis Awareness Month - Sepsis Alliance

Sepsis Awareness Month - Sepsis Alliance:

What is Sepsis Awareness Month

Every 2 minutes someone dies from sepsis in the U.S. – that’s more than from prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined.


Comment: Please research the symptoms of Sepsis. Many unfortunate people have died from Sepsis at the hands of the Hospital's they once trusted. My beloved husband of 42 years was one of them, denied antibiotics and left to die without even telling myself or our children that he even contracted Sepsis. It's extremely sad when the Hospital you always trusted, doesn't even have the decency to tell you your husband has Sepsis. And then to not treat him for it is something I just can't fathom. To top it all off, I had to be told by the Undertaker that Sepsis was the cause of my loving husband's death. It's a very sad world we live in today. I thought Euthanasia in NH was illegal? So why then was my husband murdered and the Hospital NOT held responsible?

Medicare Will Not Pay For Hospital Mistakes And Infections, New Rule

Medicare Will Not Pay For Hospital Mistakes And Infections, New Rule:

Starting in 2009, Medicare, the US government's health insurance program for elderly and disabled Americans, will not cover the costs of "preventable" conditions, mistakes and infections resulting from a hospital stay. 

So for instance, if you are on Medicare and you pick up a hospital acquired infection while you are being treated for something that is covered by Medicare, the extra cost of treating the hospital acquired infection will no longer be paid for by Medicare. Instead, the bill will be picked up by the hospital itself since the rules don't allow the hospital to charge it to you.
Medicare NEEDS to hear from the patients and survivors of loved ones who have contracted Hospital acquired infections such as SEPSIS, etc. That's the only way to stop the deaths of our loved ones!!!

10 Signs You May Have a Blood Infection

10 Signs You May Have a Blood Infection | ActiveBeat:

When sepsis, a condition that results when infection enters the bloodstream, occurs the immune system is greatly compromised when the body attempts to put the proper defenses in place.  However, if existing health concerns are an issue (i.e., such as cancer, a recent surgery, AIDS, or immune deficiency due to advanced age) a blood infection can be life threatening.

Septicemia Statistics and the Need for Death Certificate Reform

Septicemia Statistics and the Need for Death Certificate Reform | Safe Patient Project:

Note: “Sepsis” and “Septicemia” are used interchangeably, according to the articles they are referenced in below.
Death certificates are the primary source of important vital statistics in our country – yet too many certificates fail to tell the whole story.
Over 34,000 Americans are dying from septicemia each year, a toxic bloodstream infection that is often caught in hospitals, yet many hospitals are keeping that a secret. Frequently when patients develop septicemia (often used interchangeably with “sepsis”), this results in other health problems that hospitals can list as the cause of death. Inaccurate or dishonest death certificates detract from a hospital’s need to reduce their infection rates and ultimately keep vital information from patients and family members.
Septicemia, also known as blood poisoning, is a condition caused by a serious infection that gets into the bloodstream from bacterial contamination. Symptoms include chills, high fever, dropping blood pressure, racing heart beat, confusion, weakness, pale face, sweating, and dropping oxygen levels. To put it mildly, you are very, very sick and need emergency medical attention.
Comment: But what happens when Hospitals fail to treat the Sepsis patient??? Nothing! Why aren't Hospital's being held responsible for the death's of Sepsis patient's?

New Hampshire law gives grandparents custody preference

New Hampshire law gives grandparents custody preference - NBC-2.com WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Naples, Florida:
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire has become the first state in the country to give preference to grandparents in custody cases involving substance abuse.

My comment: It's about time and it took a Republican Governor to do it, as I always knew it would.
A little too late for my recently deceased husband who never got to see the
grandchildren he longed for, for 11 1/2 years after being taken by DCYF in 2006. He died with a broken heart over their loss.

St. Joseph's Hospital Never Contacted my Husbands Primary Care Doctor About Anything

When someone is admitted into a Hospital, isn't the Primary Care Doctor "Supposed" to be kept in the loop as to her patients care? Of course they are. So why does St. Joseph's Hospital feel they don't have to follow this protocol? Isn't the patient's care "Supposed" to be coordinated with his Primary Care Doctor??? Why wasn't it.
After reading over my husband's Medical file, I found St. Joes  NEVER contacted her about anything. I wondered why she hadn't seen him in the Hospital, but of course I didn't know anything of what was REALLY going on until after I got his Medical file. Just like I and my family weren't told anything, neither was his own Doctor. His Doctor was shocked at what I found in his file. Just as shocked as I was and still am! I can't believe they treated my husband and family so badly. How could they just let him die? He was a good man and loved his family so much, as we loved and will always love him. How do they think they can get away with Killing my husband?
Pretty sad, the NH Medical Examiner denied my husband an autopsy. Not even the County Attorney would order one as he stated there was NOTHING Criminal or malicious. I told him Yes, actually it was criminal and malicious. Even a woman at the DOJ told us if my husband's Primary Care Doctor called and asked for an Autopsy, one would be performed. Well his Primary Care Doctor called the Medical Examiner and she was denied also. So what good is NH Law when only a few have to follow it.
To the Medical Examiner AND County Attorney Dennis Hogan, an Autopsy was duly warranted. St. Joseph's is trying to hide their dirty little secret about the MURDER of my husband. You may have let them get away with Murder, but I sure as hell won't!!!
Cancer was NEVER proven, but there were test's I asked them to give him and were told they did, where they said they found nothing. That's odd, because their own Medical file shows I was right, that he did suffer from what I asked them to test for, but of course was NEVER told!
I am NOT going away! I WILL get justice for my MURDERED Husband! Murdered by St. Joseph's Hospital in Nashua, NH. The Hospital we once trusted. The home of SEPSIS!

St. Joseph's Hospital Nashua, NH Incompetent? You bet it is!



William F. Knightly Jr.
 1/16/1951- Murdered by St. Joseph's  Hospital on 4/26/2017

I just spoke to my husband's Primary Care  Dr. She NEVER received my husband's medical file from St. Joes. She had no clue as to what I found in his records and she's not happy. The records state they tried to reach her, but they never did. She said they never tried. I told her the rude comment Dr. Donald McDonah made to my husband and I. She was pissed. She knew my husband wasn't a druggie, but that jerk suggested he was. Is this why they let him die? Probably. I've seen for myself the way people on drugs are treated at St. Joes, only my husband wasn't and my husband's Dr. knew that for sure. Don't assume because you make an ASS of yourself.
Dr. Tisdale accused me of not wanting my husband to have treatment, because my husband had anxiety and never talked on the phone. I was his spokesperson. I told them whatever my husband wanted me to say. Why would I not want him to have treatment? He was and still IS the Love of my life. Even his Primary Care Doctor knows how much we love each other.Who in their right mind would let them remove a kidney when they didn't even know if anything was wrong with it? My husband WAS in his right mind and he refused. If he let them take it out and there was nothing wrong with it, do you honestly think they would tell him the truth? I don't. They wouldn't want to get sued for taking out a good kidney. And then they couldn't put it back now could they.
No proof of Kidney Cancer and No proof of lung Cancer. Everywhere in his file states he may have had Pneumonia, which is what I thought from the beginning. Still they never treated him for ANY infection even though they knew he had one!
St. Joes Incompetent??? You're damn right they are!

Message to Amit Chander Hospitalist at St.Joseph's Hospital in Nashua, NH

                                              
                                                     1/16/1951-Murdered 4/26/2017
                                                  By St. Joseph's Hospital Nashua, NH

Why was my Husband never treated for the infection he acquired at St. Joes? And then he was sent home with an infection without telling us. And then you couldn't even tell us he had Sepsis? And for that matter you couldn't even tell us he had a Heart attack along with everything else I found in his file.
What kind of Doctor are you? You came to this Country to be a Doctor. Doctor's are "supposed" to save lives, not kill their patients, which is exactly what you did. Anyone with half a brain can read lab reports. Did you flunk out or just didn't care? When my husband was admitted, the paperwork states he would be given antibiotics if he had an infection. Why wasn't he? You call yourself a Doctor? You don't know what the word Doctor means. Are you even aware of the Hippocratic oath or did you skip that in Medical School?  Were you in on that little scheme with Dr. Death McDonah? Did you think my husband wasn't worth saving?
My husband died a senseless death and God will punish all of you who had a hand in his murder.
I hope you like all this unwanted attention. There's plenty more heading your way!!! You screwed over the wrong man. His wife, Me, never stops fighting for the people I love and I loved my husband dearly!
You really messed with the wrong woman!!!

Message to Pallative Care Dr. Donald McDonah



                                             
                                                 1/16/1951 Murdered 4/26/2017
                                            By St. Joseph's Hospital Nashua, NH

Why did you overdose my husband? Why did you make such a rude assumption thinking my husband was a drug addict? Is that the reason you and the other Doctors at St. Joes just wanted him dead? Clearly none of you did anything to save his life. Because of you weakening his system with 220 mgs. of morphine daily, the man who walked into the Hospital stopped walking and never walked again. When my daughter asked you if you were just drugging him up to die, you lied. You told us you were trying to take away his pain. Being overdosed, he didn't even know if he WAS in pain. Hospitalist Dr. Sinha saw that for himself and stopped you from drugging him. Unfortunately it was too late. You had already done so much damage my husband never walked again. Because you drugged him to oblivion, the only thing he wanted was to go home. He said you people were going to kill him and he was right. because of you and your cohorts he's dead.
You took away his pain alright. You took EVERYTHING away from him including his life. My husband was NOT a drug addict and you should never have assumed he was!!!!! Is that what the Medical profession has come to? Make assumptions about people and pick and choose who lives or dies? You and your cohorts are not God. You will reap what you sow. God knows my husband was murdered, as well as everyone else knows. My husband didn't have to die! What gives you the right to play God?????

WHA Adopts Resolution on Sepsis — GSA

WHA Adopts Resolution on Sepsis — GSA:

On Friday, May 26th, 2017, the World Health Assembly and the World Health Organization made sepsis a global health priority, by adopting a resolution to improve, prevent, diagnose, and manage sepsis. This marks a quatum leap in the global fight against sepsis.
Sepsis, commonly referred to as ‘blood poisoning’, is the life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to infection results in organ dysfunction or failure.  Sepsis is often confused with other conditions in its early stages, with delayed recognition of the signs and symptoms quickly leading to multi-system organ failure and ultimately death.

Right now the Murder of my Husband by St. Joseph's Hospital is all I can deal with, CPS horror stories are on Hold


Due to the Murder of my Husband by St. Joseph's Hospital in Nashua, NH, I can't deal with CPS Horror stories at this time. Fighting for my stolen grandchildren for the past eleven years has taken it's toll on my whole family. I could have been spending all that time with my loving husband. I'm kicking myself now for not spending every minute of every day by his side. I wasted eleven years. I knew how heartbroken my husband was not seeing our grandson Austin. I wanted to make sure he saw him again before he died. But of course that didn't happen.
The death of my husband was extremely senseless. St. Joseph's kept saying he was dying of Cancer, but there was no proof that he even had Cancer. After going through his Medical file, I saw that my husband had an infection while in the Hospital. An infection we were NEVER told about. An UN treated infection. By the look's of it by whats in his Medical file he had Pneumonia, but he also had bed sores. That UN treated infection turned into Sepsis which killed him. So yes, St. Joseph's IS responsible for his death. They WILL pay dearly. One way or another, they WILL pay. I talk to people every day about the rotten medical care they or their family member's received at St. Josephs.  The Lawsuits are piling up. No longer does St. Joseph's work to heal their patients. Like everything else, it's all about the money. I'm wondering if Doctor's don't even take a Hippocratic oath anymore, because they sure don't try to help their patients. Their new norm is just letting the patients die.
So for now I'm trying to deal with my husband's senseless death the best way I know how. By fighting for Justice. Justice that my loving husband deserves. St. Joseph's and all the other Hospital's like them MUST be held accountable for the patients they are killing.
I have question's for St. Joseph's: Why did you let my husband die? Why didn't you treat the infection? How do you pick and choose who lives and dies? My husband was a good man. He wasn't a druggie and he wasn't a drunk. He was a husband, a father of five and a Grandfather of 13. he cherished the time he spent with his grandchildren. Not only have you murdered him, you've ruined my life and my family's. No longer will my grandchildren have their DeDe (Grampie) to love and comfort them.
Why don't you start hiring better Doctor's instead of the crap ones you have who don't give a shit about human life???You SUCK and I hope you get closed down!! You messed with the wrong family. I NEVER  STOP Fighting for my loved ones!

SEPSIS, The Hospital Borne Infection Left Untreated Kill's Thousand's Every Year

Seeing as my own husband is one of the many thousands of people who contracted Sepsis at my once favorite Hospital, St. Joseph's in Nashua, I felt the need to write this post.
Like the thousands who die every year from Sepsis left untreated, my loving husband died of this same fate on April 26th, 2017. When my husband was admitted into the Hospital on March 16th, 2017, he didn't have an infection. When blood tests were repeated on March 27th, he had an infection and was never given any antibiotics. In fact, we weren't even told he had an infection. So who should be held responsible? it's not that hard to figure out when someone has an infection. His temperature was a little low, his blood pressure was low, his white blood count was high, his heart rate was up over 90, his respiratory rate was up past 20 (until they drugged him up with more morphine), he was getting big black spots on his neck and sores all the way up his spine that looked like MRSA and probably was. His skin on his legs was mottling and we were told it was his body was shutting down. No, it was because he had Sepsis, which we didn't find out until we were told by the Undertaker. Pretty sad when the Hospital couldn't even tell us the truth, or even treat my husband for the infection he caught in THEIR Hospital. My loving husband would be alive today if it weren't for St. Joseph's DIRTY little secret. They claim he died of Cancer, but his primary cause of death was SEPSIS. Nothing in his medical file even states that he had Cancer for sure, but it sure mentions Pneumonia plenty, also left untreated. I even found out he had a Heart Attack. Again, we were never told. There is plenty in the medical file that would make your heads spin, but I don't want to give it all away at this time. But yes, my love would still be alive today if he were treated for his Hospital borne infection. He said St. Joseph's was going to kill he and he was right! They did!
Now I find myself on another mission. Hospitals need to be held accountable for the deaths caused by Sepsis. My husband, as well as all the other people who have died from Sepsis must get justice. This is what I'll be working on. Legislation to hold Hospitals accountable for the deaths their Hospital borne infections cause. Legislation to make sure ALL Hospitals follow guidelines to test for Sepsis and treat Sepsis. Here's a really good article a friend sent me:
Doctors have resisted guidelines to treat sepsis. New study suggests those guidelines save lives
Even in the face of increased pressure from regulators, many doctors have failed to fully embrace early screening and treatment protocols for sepsis, an infection-related complication that afflicts tens of thousands of Americans every year and that can be life-threatening.
Skeptics have argued that there haven’t been any comprehensive studies to support the notion that the protocols can actually save lives.
The protocols call on clinicians to first obtain a blood culture and measure the serum lactate level — often an indicator of septic shock, when the body’s immune system attacks vital organs — and to administer broad-spectrum antibiotics, usually by IV.
Doctors who have already adopted the protocols and avoided treatment delays, according to proponents, have likely saved thousands of lives annually in New York alone, and could save tens of thousands nationally if the protocols are more widely adopted.

A Big Thank You (Not) to All of the People who Screwed my Husband Over



First and foremost, we have Dr. Tisdale, who told my husband and I, "Maybe you don't have Kidney Cancer. We won't know until we take out your kidney." My husband refused. Well guess what, it was still never proven he had Kidney Cancer.
Then we have Pallative Care Dr. Donald McDonah. I finally found out who referred him to my husband's case without telling us. A Hospitalist at St. Joseph's Hospital who didn't have the decency to ask us first. We had no clue what Pallative Care was, nor did anyone tell us Dr. drug pusher McDonah was a Pallative Care Dr. Theis is the Dr. who fed my husband 220 mgs. of Morphine daily. The Dr. responsible for making my husband so weak, that he never walked again. Pretty sad a man walk's into the Hospital and then has to be brought home by ambulance on a stretcher. He couldn't wait to get out of there, once the morphine doses were lowered and the drug pushing Dr. was taken off his case. He kept saying they were going to kill him and they did.
And I don't want to hear he was in excrutiating pain. He was so numb from all the Morphine he didn't even know whether he was in pain or not. When a person is drugged to oblivion and Nurses come in and wake him every four hours for more morphine, he doesn't know whether he's coming or going. Because he could speak at the time, I, his wife had no say. It's pretty sad when they can just keep drugging a person when that person doesn't even know whats going on.
Then we have the Pallative Care Nurse Practitioner, Cheryl De La Rosa. Also referred by the same Hospitalist to come to our home. Again, we were never told or asked how we felt. If I had known what she was, I would have slammed the door in her face. This is the woman who kept agitating my husband.with her rantings of death. My husband was only 66 years old. he didn't want to hear her negative rant's anymore than I did. Her third and final visit to my house, she pushed my husband over the edge. She mentioned Dr. McDonah's name. My husband threw his arms in the air and tried to scream. Cheryl thought it was big joke. She responded with, "Did you see his reaction when I mentioned Dr. McDonah"s name?" I said "Well what do you expect? He's the one that overdosed him. He's the reason he's laying in this bed now." My husband's mouth opened wide and his eyes were half shut, which is how he staid the rest of his life Cheryl left and did nothing. As a Nurse Practitioner, she should have known something had just happened. I had no clue, because he could no longer speak. So the next day  he was readmitted back into the Hospital, for Dehydration, but the Medical records state he was readmitted for SEPSIS!
As I read over his medical record's, I saw he had a Heart attack, but I was never told. I thought for a while that he had a stroke. For all I know he could have had both, but the Hospitalist now on his case refused to do a Cat Scan. He also refused to do blood test's which we wanted done. When he was readmitted back into the Hospital, his Hemoglobin was 7.5. We were told if it went down to 7 he could have a blood transfusion. The Hospitalist, Dr. Kyaw stated, "Why should we waste the blood on him when someone bleeding to death could use it more?" And that's a Dr.? Give me a break!
According to the Medical record's, both from the Hospital and my husband's Primary Care Doctor and the Pulmonary Doctor, the lung biopsy my husband had states, a tumor, a mass OR Pneumonia. Again, lung cancer was NEVER proven. I believe he most certainly had Pneumonia. I kept telling them he had a respiratory infection, but no-one listened. He had a cold for almost a year straight before he was ever prescribed any medication, which still didn't clear it up.
Then we have his Death Certificate, which states Lung Cancer?????? and Sepsis. That's odd because we were never told of the Sepsis and ALL of the Medical record's state "Probable Sepsis." They don't even know.
For ALL of these reason's I fought for an Autopsy for my husband. Every time denied. County Attorney Dennis Hogan stated it wouldn't be done because his death wasn't  "Criminal" or "malicious". Then what would you call it when Nothing the Hospital stated was PROVEN?  That they neglected to treat him for a Hospital borne infection that he caught while there? That we were NEVER told?
We were told by a woman in the DOJ that if my husband's Primary Care Dr. called and wanted an Autopsy, he would be given one. Wrong! She tried. Still no autopsy. They told me to pay for one myself. If I had the 5 thousand dollars I would have.
A Hospital borne Infection killed my loving husband, NOT Cancer! The love of my life was right when he said they were going to kill him. They did and the State of NH doesn't care. Hospital's continue to get away with murder!!!
I can never have closure. With all of the screw ups by so many, I'll never know what was wrong with my husband. Thank you (NOT) to all the people who had a hand at killing my husband. And thank you to ALL the people who could have helped get my husband the Justice he deserves but instead looked the other way!

EXTREMELY UNHAPPY GRAMMY and VERY PISSED OFF WIFE!!!

The NH Medical Examiner Has Denied My Husband The Autopsy He Deserves

R.I.P. My Knight

My loving husband passed away at St. Joseph's Hospital in Nashua on April 26th,2017. St. Joes kept telling us he was dying of Cancer. They never told us he was actually dying from an infection. A Hospital borne infection, left untreated that he caught while he was there in March of 2017. I still wouldn't have known if the Funeral Director hadn't told me what was on his death Certificate.
After reading over the Medical records I found out more that St. Joes never told my family and I. My husband had a heart attack, which he was never treated for. I believe he had the heart attack and possibly a stroke on Tuesday April 17th, in our home when a Pallative Nurse Practitioner agitated him so badly he threw up his arms and tried to yell. She witnessed the pain and the suffering she put him through. We never signed up for Pallative care and I still don't know who authorized them coming to my house. I had no clue she was a Pallative care NP, just as we had no clue the Dr. who overmedicated him was a Pallative Care Dr. We didn't even know what Pallative Care was. I WILL find out who authorized that witch to come into my home and who is responsible for letting the Pallative Dr. feed my husband 220 mgs. of Morphine daily. Nobody said a word to us. Nobody told us. If I had known that witch was a Pallative Care NP she never would have gotten into my house. SHE caused my husband's heart attack and possible stroke with her death rant's. Even after we told her to stop being negative around him. He was only 66 years old. He didn't want to hear he was dying coming out of her mouth. We were still planning our future together. Now there is no future.
We still don't know if my husband had Kidney Cancer. His Oncologist stated they wouldn't know unless his kidney was removed. My husband didn't like that idea. What if they removed it and there was nothing wrong? What if they told us it had Cancer, but really didn't.
We still don't know for sure if he had a stroke. The Hospitalist denied him having a cat scan. We don't even know what kind of an infection the Hospital killed him with. The medical records say "Possible Sepsis." They don't even know for sure, yet got away with writing Sepsis on his death certificate.
Did he REALLY have lung Cancer? God only knows. His lung biopsy was inconclusive. They claim they did a Biopsy under his lower back and stated it was lung cancer, but I don't trust their word as far as I can throw them. I used to think they were the best Hospital in Nashua. Now I know better. They both suck!
After all this you'd think the Medical Examiner would have done an autopsy. Nothing is clear and I will never get closure. There are too many unanswered questions. They say they only do them on suspicious deaths. Well if my husbands death isn't considered suspicious, than what is?
I will be working with the Legislature on Bill's that will hold Hospital's accountable when patients contract Hospital borne infections and also to make autopsies available when family member's believe they're needed.
 St. Joes, may have won this battle, but they will never win this war.They are responsible for my husband's death and if I can't have peace, neither will they.

My Husband died from an Infection he contracted at a Nashua Hospital

My husband died of an infection, contracted at a Nashua Hospital. He also had a Heart attack.  My family and I were never told. They kept telling us he was dying of Cancer.
My husband walked into the Hospital on March 16th,2017. The first week, he walked around with a walker, he ate, he drank, he talked and joked around, he took his pills.The second week he was put on 220 mgs. of Morphine by a Pallative Doctor. And NO, we did NOT opt for Hospice care or Pallative care. In fact, we refused.  He stopped walking, eating,talking, everything. All he did now was sleep.
 The Hospitalist came in to see him while the Pallative Dr. was in the room. The Hospitalist tried to wake my husband and asked him if he was in pain. My husband answered, "I don't know." The Hospital got angry.  He said, "If he doesn't know if he's in pain, he isn't. He's being overmedicated. I'm taking over his medication right now."
My husband went home that day on a stretcher,by ambulance in worse condition than when he was admitted.The Oncologist told my husband they weren't sure if he had kidney cancer and they wouldn't know unless they took out his kidney. My husband refused, saying what if there was nothing wrong with it and they took it out for nothing.
His second day home he started eating again. He was doing good.The only thing he couldn't do was walk, still to weak from all the Morphine.
We opted for home care from AIM, which is part of Home Health and Hospice.   His Nurse was supposed to be the only Nurse he would see, but for some reason they sent a Hospice Pallative Nurse Practitioner after we already told them we didn't want Hospice Nurses because all they talk about his death. My husband didn't want to die and hearing her death rant for three days straight put him over the edge. I thought he had a stroke on April 18th but it was a heart attack when the NP agitated him so badly. She mentioned the Pallative Dr.s  name  and he threw up his arms and tried to yell. She witnessed the Heart attack and did nothing. When she left, he just lay there with his mouth wide open and his eyes half shut. I called his Primary Care Doctor and told her what happened.
My husbands Nurse called that night and said the NP was no longer allowed at my house and that she would be there the next day. She said he was dehydrated and called 911. An ambulance came and took him back to the Hospital on April 19th.
In the emergency room we were told he only a couple hours to live. Still no-one ever mentioned Stroke or Heart attack. They just kept saying he was dying of Cancer. They didn't want to put him on an IV, but I insisted. After doing blood work, they said he had an infection, but said they didn't know what it was or where it was, so they put him on a little IV bag of antibiotics. (In the Medical records it shows he had an infection the first time he was in the Hospital, which he got while he was there.)They were stopped that evening. His hemoglobin was 7.5 and we were told if it went down to 7 he could get a blood transfusion. His white blood cells were extremely high also,24,000, so they took him off the Saline and gave him Dextrose. Once they did he became responsive.
He started doing better and was moved from ICU to a room back on the fifth floor. He still wasn't drinking or talking. He just lay there with his mouth wide open and his eyes half shut. Still Stroke was never mentioned.
That day I requested a cat scan to see if he had a stroke. I also requested more blood tests because he hadn't had any since April 20th. I figured if his hemaglobin went down to a 7 he could have a transfusion. I was denied by the Hospitalist. He stated, "Why waste the blood on him when someone bleeding to death could use it more." I tried transferring him to another Hospital. The Hospitalist refused to give him a referral. I told him he would be better off in a Cancer facility. It didn't happen. They wanted put him on a morphine drip. I refused. My husband was responsive enough to shake his head no.He was afraid they were going to kill him. And they did.
I staid at the Hospital with him 24/7 holding his hand, as I knew he feared for his life. I watched the monitors as his heart rate was usually 90 or more and his breathing rate was always past 20 and his blood pressure always low, along with the white blood cells being extremely high,24,000, ALL signs of Sepsis, but we were never told.
On Wednesday, April 26th, my husband finally gave up and died, with his family present and me still holding his hand.
We still don't know what the infection was, or if he had kidney cancer.  I am fighting for an autopsy because there are too many unanswered questions. 
Yesterday I got his Medical records from the Hospital. They state "Possible" Sepsis. I also found paperwork which shows he had a heart attack. Again, we were never told. 
Hospitals need to be held accountable. Just because a person has Cancer doesn't mean they shouldn't be treated for other medical problems.

My Husband Died Of Sepsis, NOT Cancer!!!!!

Image may contain: 1 person

My husband was admitted into a Nashua Hospital in March looking for Cancer treatment. He walked in with a cane. The only treatment he got was Morphine. He was overmedicated with 220 mgs of Morphine daily by a local Pallative care Doctor. All he did was sleep.The Hospitalist saw for himself and took over my husbands medication.
I took my husband home on April 6th,2017. He was finally prescribed Marinol pills which I requested, thank's to my good internet friend Cie Cie. This medication should have been offered to him months ago when the Doctor's knew he was barely eating, but just like Lawyer's, they offer nothing.
The day he came home, he came home by ambulance on a stretcher. So sad especially after he walked in on his own three weeks prior. I got him the Marinol. For the first time in months his stomache growled. He was eating fruits, dry cereal, muscle milk, creamsicles and whatever else he wanted, along with the many drinks I bought him. He was doing good. Eating, talking, drinking and joking around with everyone. The only thing he couldn't do was walk, because being overmedicated on Morphine weakened him so badly.
We opted for the Aim program which is part of Hospice, but no Hospice Nurses were supposed to come to my house. A really nice Nurse showed up the first day he was home. She and Billy joked around and he answered all her questions. An LNA came a couple times a week and then a Physical Therapist came. Billy had a sore on his spine he had gotten while in the Hospital which was kept bandaged. The Therapist checked it and took over the bandage. It ripped off the whole top of the sore. She found out from the wound specialist after she did it that she was supposed to use water or cleanser on it so that wouldn't happen. It was too late. I believe that was where the infection started which led to Sepsis.
On Friday of the next week, a Hospice Pallative Nurse Practitioner came. I kept asking where was the Nurse assigned to his case. She said the Nurse got sent somewhere else. I told her straight out we didn't want to hear any negative comments, which was the reason we didn't want Hospice. She spewed her rants any way. She told him he had a couple day's to a week to live, amongst many other negative comments. He told her he wanted to live. She kept it up. This woman came back again on Monday and Tuesday, still spewing her death comments. She just didn't care. On Tuesday, my son witnessed all of the horrible things she was saying. He couldn't believe it. I gave it right back to her. She pushed my husband to the limit. She mentioned the Pallative Doctor's name to him. He threw up his arms and tried to yell. Then she wanted to put him on Haldol because he was so agitated. I told her no, that she was the one who agitated him. I told her he was feisty. She said he's feisty because he's near death. I told her no, he's feisty because he's always been feisty. When she left, he was no longer talking, eating, drinking and couldn't even take his pills. He just laid there with his mouth open and his eyes half shut and never spoke again. I believe he had a stroke, but the Hospital refused a Cat scan.
I kept trying to give him drinks with a dropper, but he didn't come out of whatever that NP did to him. His regular Nurse called me and came the next day on Wednesday. She called 911 and an ambulance came. He in no way wanted to go back to the Hospital as he feared being over drugged again, but I had no choice. I didn't want him to die. He was given blood tests and we were told he had an infection but they didn't know where. He was put on IV antibiotics which were stopped that evening when he was transferred out of ICU. All I knew was his white blood platelets were very high, which signals Sepsis. But they told me nothing. They didn't even want to give him an IV which was the main reason we brought him there. He got the Saline IV and then it was changed to Dextrose because his sodium was so high. He was given two hours to live and the family was called, but he fought and made it another week. He finally became responsive, nodding to me or blinking his eyes.
I staid with him 24/7, always questioning what they were doing. He refused Morphine, but due to his high heart rate along with his high breathing rate, I only allowed 1 mg every two hours because they said that would help him.
I watched as the bandage on his spine was changed. It was bad. After a few day's the sores went all the way up his spine and wound up on other parts of his body. I asked for a cat scan and more blood tests because his Hemaglobin was 7.5 and if it went down to 7 he could get a blood transfusion. I told them I thought he had a stroke. He was denied both. The Doctor stated why waste the blood on him when someone bleeding to death could use it. This whole experience has been the biggest nightmare of my life.
I talked to the Doctor on Monday about getting him transferred to a Cancer facility as they had no clue what they were doing. He agreed and then refused on Tuesday. I knew if I let him stay there he would die for sure. He finally agreed to help on Wednesday, but it was too late. He died holding my hand around 5PM.
We were refused an autopsy by the Medical Examiner, but I need answer's. Answer's that only an autopsy can tell me.
The medical Examiner's report list's Cancer and Sepsis. He had ALL of the symptoms of Sepsis but was left UNTREATED!
I need Justice for my Husband. I can not sit by and let his death be in vane!
I promise I will NOT stop until my husband gets the Justice he deserves!
I Love You Big Knight!xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Forever and always yours, Dot

May My Loving Husband Bill Knightly Rest in Peace



https://www.gofundme.com/funeral-services-for-bill-knightly

My loving husband and soulmate of 42 years, Bill Knightly, passed away on April 26th,2017.
I am so sorry he never got to reunite with his stolen grandchildren Austin and Isabella and his granddaughter Ally.
His two weeks at home, he spent staring at Austin's picture. The Grandson he loved so much and did everything with. They were inseparable until the State of NH ripped them apart. It has been a very painful eleven years praying for Austin's return. I had hoped he would make contact and make his Grandfather's last day's happy ones. But of course, it didn't happen.
My husband never got to meet Isabella. He said he would meet her when she came home from the Hospital, but he never did. She never came home, another precious grandchild stolen by the State.
Austin's sister Ally was also taken. Her father got custody and we had hoped to see her again as well. Hopefully his death will not be in vain and we can be reunited with our precious stolen by the State grandchildren.That would make Billy so happy. He knew I wouldn't stop fighting for them. I kept telling him we'll get the kids back, but the roadblocks the State put in front of us and nowhere to turn, made reunification impossible.
We have 12 Grandchildren, which include Austin, Isabella and Ally and 1 Great Granddaughter Rose. We love them all, but seeing the three missing grandchildren may have given him the miracle we were looking for.
I set up a Go Fund Me page because he didn't have Life Insurance, which we were talking about right before he found out he had Cancer in January. We never, ever thought either one of our lives would be over at such a young age. We thought we had many more years to spend together and that we would live to see our missing Grandchildren again.
If anyone would like to donate toward my husband's services, it would be greatly appreciated. I don't have the funding to give him the send off he deserves. If you can find it in your hearts, please help.
My husband was a good man. A good man who was taken too soon.
                                                                     Thank you Everyone, Dot

Have you seen Me?

Have you seen Me?


This is my Grandson Austin, stolen by Nashua, NH DCYF on 2/3/2006. Date of Birth 1/25/2000.
I am 99.9% sure he was adopted by an older Foster couple in Merrimack, NH, who still deny the adoption.
His best buddy in the whole world, his Grampie, is in grave condition battling cancer. The people who I believe adopted him are well aware of this fact, but still deny he is with them.
I believe seeing Austin again could make a huge impact on my husband's will to live.
If anyone has seen Austin, whose name may have been changed, please let him know his Grampie is terminally ill and he may never get to see him again. Also, please contact me if you see him.
Thank you, Dot

Stay Clear of Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialists

If you don't want your loved ones drugged to oblivion, stay clear of Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialists.
My husband was sitting in a chair, walking and eating until the Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialist took over his medication. He was so over medicated on Morphine, all he did was sleep. No food, no walking, NOTHING!!!! He walked into the Hospital and three weeks later he was brought home by ambulance on a stretcher. Because of being over drugged, the love of my life is now dying!

N.H. DCYF’S accountability sorely lacking

N.H. DCYF’S accountability sorely lacking

Every day most of us try to hold ourselves or our direct wards whether they be family or peers accountable for our actions. We are told "To err is human, to forgive is divine," but we also know the extension of any pardon must follow the admission of one's mistake. Above all other institutions that function in our society, entities that make up our government at every level, should hold themselves to the highest standards of accountability.

In the case of the N.H. Division of Children, Youth and Families, recent events have made it clear accountability is a foreign concept.
