There’s more to this than what we’re hearing. We know the WRHA “does not cover damage to teeth”. the question is, why doesn’t their insurance company? Unless, of course, the WRHA (ie the person doing the procedure) was somehow not covered by the insurance for this type of incident for some reason (not trained or qualified?).
Mrs. Clark concluded with a rallying cry:
“If everybody in Manitoba stood up for what they thought was right, what a wonderful place this would be. Just stand up for your rights and fight for what you think is right.“
The fact is, when our parents and grandparents end up in the care of the WRHA, they can get the runaround – in Mrs. Clark’s file, for 5 months after being left looking like Ma Kettle – and when they don’t have the capacity or spirit to fight, it is up to us to take on the Lanette Siragusa’s, whose well-paid bureaucratic job job it is to make excuses, enable the runaround, frustrate and exhaust the victims, and ultimately, pretend they care enough to “do better” when the media asks for an explanation.
