Keeping an eye on Communist, Totalitarian China, and its influence both globally, and we as Canadians. I have come to the opinion that we are rarely privy to truth regarding the real goal, the agenda of Red China, and it's implications for Canada [and North America as a whole]. No more can we rely on our media as more and more information on China is actively being swept under the carpet - not for consumption.

Interior Health keeping control of Summerland seniors home due to concerns over care
Leave A Commen
An Okanagan privately owned long-term care facility will continue to be under government management due to outstanding concerns about inadequate care of seniors.
Administrator Vanda Urban was initially appointed to oversee the day-to-day operations of Summerland Seniors Village in February 2020 for a period of at least six months.
Her oversight role has now been extended to July 15, 2021, based on a decision by Interior Health’s board of directors.
“We are committed to providing the best possible care to the people who live in long-term care throughout the entire Interior Health region,” said Dr. Doug Cochrane, Interior Health board chair.
There is a new in-house online incident reporting system, the inspector noted, but follow-up is falling short of requirements.
The December inspection report also noted an ineffective system to ensure care plans are updated when residents experience a “substantial change,” and an ineffective system for the “documented reassessments of restraints.”

An interim director of care and interim educator arrived at the facility in mid-December to provide support and mentorship to nursing staff, the report noted.
A licensing inspector discovered through nursing notes that there were incidents of neglect of seniors, licensed practical nurses (LPN’s) sleeping on the job, missed medications, and incomplete shift reports, without investigation.
The inspector noted there was no system in place to monitor people in care to ensure that they are not subjected to harmful actions.
“Upon chart audits, it was noted that multiple persons in care had noted bruising to upper arms over a four-month period,” the February inspection report stated.
“This had not been reported by employees to management therefore not investigated until management was made aware.”

There was also a major lack of supervision of staff on evenings and weekends.
In February, a sign was posted outside of the nursing stations stating, “only call on-call manager for: natural disasters, elevator issues, death of a resident, or any colour codes called.”
The licensee immediately scheduled supervisors to work 12-hour shifts and alternate weekends, the report noted, and the questionable sign was replaced with a new sign indicating the on-call manager was available at any time for questions and support.
