Why this petition matters

Started by Amanda Fenton

 Ryker Fenton was an eleven year old non-verbal child that died on the evening of January 1  2022, he was failed by an ER doctor at the childrens hospital in Halifax, NS. The results of negligence, delayed in diagnoses, delayed treatment contributed to Ryker's sudden and unexpected death.

 

On Jan 1st, shortly after 3pm,  Ryker's father brought him to the hospital, and I met them there, because he wasn't feeling well and had vomited (no diarrhea), lethargic, shaking, and not himself; however, the doctor released him on a 48 hour plan, if Ryker didn't get better, or worsened to bring him back. The doctor checked his ears, stomach, testicles, throat, oxygen, and heart rate-- THEY FORGOT TO DO A BLOOD PRESSURE IN THE ER AFTER THEY COULDNT GET IT IN THE TRIAGE AREA.

 

FURTHERMORE, THEY DID NOT DO ANY BLOOD WORK OR DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING, AND THEY GAVE HIM AN ANTI-NAUSEA MEDICATION AND SENT HIM HOME!

 

THREE HOURS LATER WHILE LAYING IN BED WITH HIS FATHER-- RYKER WENT UNRESPONSIVE. HIS DAD CALLED 911, AND BEGAN CPR RIGHT AWAY. FIRST RESPONDERS GOT THERE QUICKLY, AND SO DID I, BUT THEY COULDN'T GET A PULSE OR REVIVE MY SWEET BABY.  

 

When we got back to the hospital Ryker was already in the trauma room because he went by ambulance-- the doctor that discharged him 3 hours prior without barely doing anything, came up to matt and I and said, "I am so sorry, I missed something, I am so sorry." The doctor then told us he removed himself from Ryker's case immediately because he was the one to discharged Ryker on only a 48 hour plan, not even three hours prior to his death.

 

In Canada, over 35,000 people die annually because of medical errors, and is actually estimated to be close to 500,000 people annually!  Doctors are heavily protected by CMPA, which Is mainly funded by tax payers-- Canada is the only country in the world that has this association that was founded in 1901.  In 2019, the Canadian government gave $5 billion dollars to CMPA; this association uses these funds to legally protect Doctors-- even when they made a medical error!

 

A few weeks after Rykers death I recieved his medical file and learned that his heart rate was 179 in triage, and the nurse put him as level two (life threatening).  He wasn't given a covid test; however, his files say "he didn't have covid," but where it says swapped for covid it was blank!

 

Nova Scotia's government, reimburse physicians 90% of the fee they pay to be a member of this association, and we have the highest reimbursement in Canada, so we in theory we as tax payers are paying the legal fees to protect those who failed, harmed, and caused death to our loved one, and at the same time most law firms are scared and will not take on medical malpractice cases because CMPA have $5 billion dollars to drag on for years!

 

Please sign and share this post because it could be your loved one failed by our broken healthcare system, because of our medical model in Canada and how its structured,governments and the law protects these doctors and hospitals in Canada.  We need to take a stand together and protect our families-- medical professionals must be held to the highest standard of care they took an oath to provide!
