This section of the Kaiser Papers is dedicated to presenting factual and useful information to the patient population, their caregivers, law enforcement, District Attorneys and Legislators regarding the reality of a corporate medical insurance industry agenga to intentionally allow high cost patients, end of life patients or very long term and expensive to treat patients to be either killed outright or by creating a series of intentional medical errors to drastically shorten life.

Material documenting factual, historical events specific to medical eldercide specific to caregiver is also presented in this section.  No information is presented on patients that choose to participate in these types of programs.  They are few and far between and that is their personal choice.  The material in this section is only about demonstrated euthanasia against the free will of a patient and against their personal choice. - Index is below

It is financially adventageous to Kaiser and the for profit Permanente to allow a patient to die without true medical treatment, to encourage a patient to die that is ill for a long period of time and expensive to treat, to have on staff employees of low moral that do not think twice about causing a death for personal financial gain from built in corporate incentives, such as bonus programs.  All of these methods are considered euthanasia by the entire world but in the United States this corporation has made sure that no one will enforce the laws against causing the death of any patient, especially those deaths that were done intentionally.

The companion sections to euthanasia.kaiserpapers.org, showing historically that this has gone on for decades, more on an individual basis rather than today's corporate agenda of on large scale are at:

INDEX ARTICLES OF INTEREST RELATED TO PATIENT EUTHANASIA AGENDAS
Dr. Terry Pechacek, the CDC associate director for science in the office on smoking and health, said that data seeking to quantify economic benefits of smoking couldn't capture all the benefits associated with longevity, like a grandparent's contribution to a family. Because of such uncertainties the CDC won't put a price tag on savings from smoking.

Such conclusions are controversial since they assign an economic benefit to premature death. U.S. government agencies shy away from the calculations.

"The natural train of logic that follows from that is that then anybody that's admitted around
age 65 or older that's showing any signs of sickness should be denied treatment,"
Pechacek said. "That's the cheapest thing to do."

Gray Murders by Jay Cheshes

Mary-Edith Blum refused to accept the substandard care she felt she received by her HMO. So Blum sued Kaiser under California law for "elder abuse," and last year, after a four-day arbitration, she won the case and was awarded $100,000.

Imagine visiting your 85-year-old mother in the hospital after she has a debilitating stroke. You find out that, in order to survive,  she requires a feeding tube and antibiotics to fight an infection. She once told you that no matter what happened, she wants to live. 

But the doctor refuses further life-sustaining treatment. When you ask why, you are told, in effect, "The time has come for your  mother to die. All we will provide is comfort care."

Life Savers - by Joseph Soos

Cases of eldercide are rare,[note from kaiserpapers - corporate eldercide is common] but it is important for family and friends to remain alert.  If you are responsible for someone who needs frequent unsupervised care, here are some precautions to keep him or her safe from harm.  

Set some limits.  Arrange for a reputable accountant to conduct irregularly scheduled audits of the patient's assets at least once a year.  Establish a red-flag system that'll alert you and the accountant if an unusual pattern occurs.  For example, limit ATM transaction to $300 and checks made to individuals or to cash to $400.

Make a List.  Compile a detailed inventory of the patient's valuables, ranging from jewelry to electronics.  Keep a copy and make one for the patient's attorney, close family members or trusted friends, and perhaps a member of the clergy.  Provide instructions that law enforcement be called immediately if anything is missing.  Optional:  If the patient agrees, remove all valuables from the house and place them in a secure location, such as a bank vault.

Use the buddy system.  Set up an independent mutual-alert mechanism by asking a neighbor to check in regularly with your loved one if you don't live nearby yourself.  Some people use a prearranged signal, such as the lighting of a porch light, to indicate "i'm fine."  Another option:  Set up a buddy-on-the-phone system through a civic organization such as a local VFW chapter.

Sound the alarm.  Consider purchasing emergency alert devices, alarms that send a signal to local police or medical personnel.  These can be worn as a pendant or wrist watch or installed in convenient locations, such as by a person's bedside.

Do a safety check.  Request a home inspection by your local law enforcement agency and fire service.  They''ll look at everything from lighting to handrails to alarm systems.  This safety check is usually free of charge.  Should you need work done, they will often refer you to trustworthy local contractors. - Joseph Soos

Corporate Incentives to kill a patient -

For some background and examples of what does happen you may want to check out Odyssey Health Cares propectus though to see a money making formula routinely used  by the industry.  I think that if you look into this subject a little further you will find that there is no real difference from for profit or non profit corporations that care for patients.  They all are only about making money for themselves or their stockholders off of government contracts.  

Please view page 74
http://medicalserialkillers.kaiserpapers.org/pdfs/odyssey.pdf

of the linked to corporate prospectus.  This prospectus or stockholder financial report is being used as an example of what takes place in this industry.  This particular company just happened to get caught doing some things that were very, very wrong.  You will also notice that on page 74 no one patient was still on the program once the government payment cap was reached.  The reason for that is the corporation stands a chance of triggering a Federal Audit into their corporate business practices.  There is no lingering illness on that program.  It just isn't cost effective.

You must die or check out of the program before that cap is reached.  Period!  An audit would mean that the Federal Government would find many people that were not really dying that the corporation was billing for.  This place deals in volume so there is a great deal of money that the government is paying them.  You get 90 days paid by the government to the corporation.  According to Odyssey most patients are gone forever by 85.2 days.  85.2 days - Four days short of a computer program in the Medicare system that  could trigger an audit.  What a coincidence.  They must really have honed medical science to be that exact on how long any patient, with any illness, disease, etc., is going to last.  

More detailed information on the finacial rewards for doing in the patients, especially when the government is paying for their medical care can be found her at:  http://medicalserialkillers.kaiserpapers.org/pdfs/ODYSSEYHEALTHCA10Q.pdf.

Glance at page 16 to get a general idea what this is all about.  Then go for the meat of the financial information.  Just do a quick search for the term "Medicare Cap."  

Never let anyone tell you that corporate enabling or encouragement to kill a patient is a rare occurance.

PAIN RELIEF PROMOTION ACT (HR2260)

WRITTEN TESTIMONY OF PHYSICIANS FOR COMPASSIONATE CARE TO UNITED STATES SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

APRIL 25, 2000 

.....new examples of the misuse of federally controlled substances for assisted suicide and euthanasia in Oregon have surfaced. These cases reveal failure to protect the mentally infirm and those under pressure from their families, involvement of health maintenance organizations in assisted suicide, failed assisted suicide attempts, and involuntary euthanasia in the hospice setting. These abuses make it increasingly clear that allowing the use of federally controlled substances for assisted suicides constitutes a public danger.
