Failure to Listen

A Cultural Problem

Justina Pelletier: Boston Children’s Hospital and Medical Child Abuse

Boston Children’s Hospital and The State of MA – Set Dangerous Precedents

Resource of Information on Justina Pelletier, Parentectomy and Boston Children’s Hospital

Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) & The State of MA announcements 3 Set Dangerous Precedents for  the future of medical care and the well-being of children as well as adult patients.   Boston Children’s Hospital’s  strategy of patient  engagement and risk management are  hazardous, outdated and downright unethical while  trampling boldly on patient and parental rights.  What is going on?

 As government will not act Failure to Listen  and others are doing what we can to assist Justina and her parents.  Failure to Listen will document  and share information in the spirit of  Freedom of Speech and transparency.    Justina Pelletier case  is a shameful display of poor leadership as well as NO LEADERSHIP.

Below is an ongoing List of online stories  and resources  around the web about  the Justina Pelletier Case as well as other cases of child abduction cases at Boston Children’s Hospital.  This list will be updated as new information is made available and accessible to us.

Goal:   Create a resource of online information to share and analyze.    Together– I believe  we will find solutions to help the Pelletiers–daughter imprisoned for 13 months,  eight of those months in  a locked unit at Boston Children’s Hospitals.  (Boston Children’s Hospital will have hefty profits for 2013 and 2014  unless Justice is served.)
