Notes : Reflections on Tuft Medical Center Abuse and Lies

Jason, thank you.   It already is!   My experience at Tufts Medical Center taught me I do not matter in this world.  So far NO ONE GIVES A SHIT!  Tufts medical center, its administrators and ER department LIED, DISCRIMINATED and did HARM.  And our healthcare system said that was okay, we don’t believe a physician who practiced emergency medicine for almost 20 years and we don’t believe her friends—why would Tufts discriminate they ask?  I don’t know but their history show a pattern.  Tufts Medical Center cleverly applied the LABELS.   My story is not RELEVANT. I am IRRELEVANT in our healthcare system and in this COUNTRY.
Do you know what that does to a person?   Black people, we grin and bear it.
It is worse than Nazi-Germany because it is not a CLEAR REJECTION!

I did not quite put it all together immediately; emotionality does not lend itself to easy comprehension by others.   Anyway, malpractice is only pursuable in cases of death and for those who can afford $350,000 for a critical thinking, out of the box, best-practice attorney; However, I do have a good case just based on the medication and the associated HTN.  Further, had I been the ER physician on that night,   would have admitted to medicine with a primary dx of syncope unless I documented that the person was ‘shit faced’ with objective data like a blood alcohol and history high blood pressure.  (The doctor did not examine me)  As they stared at my elevated BP, I told them  it had never been that high, they were non-plussed, I was in pain for hours before I got 1mg of  Morphine. But  they added stress by yelling at me, ordering me to do things,  I could not do and letting me suffer in pain while they watched. –I just never framed it clearly. .

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
