Is medicine killing you? Lissa Rankin, MD at TEDxFargo
Third leading Preventable cause of DEATH is Medical Error

Whats Wrong With Medicine?
Patient engagement paramount to health outcomes. Patients cure themselves by living healthy; doctors assist by identify underlying causes of symptoms.
Symptom control is not a cure and does not create health.
Parentectomy on Sale at Boston Children’s Hospital
STOP the sale now! This is a PRECEDENT in sleazy hospital medicine. Anyone with the authority to end this, please do so now.
Parentectomy is the removal of a child from parents who are not in agreement with the doctor’s plan. Parentectomy is a travesty, justified under the guise of medical child abuse.
Parentectomy is on sale at Boston Children’s Hospital! The term, parentectomy, is new. Surprisingly, more are not alarmed by the actions of Boston Children’s Hospital. There are no medical justifications. Up until now, Medical child abuse has never been a reason for prolonged involuntary psychiatric hospitalization of a child. Why this rise in the number of cases?
In determining the truth, keep in mind two things in mind:
The medical record…more later….
The consistently inconsistent stories told by hospital employees and their risk managers.
Whatever stories are put forth by Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) and Tufts Medical Center, remember that there are a dozen stories more logically and medically sound that do not brand patients or their caregivers with stereotypical labels, and do not assume patients have Munchhausen Syndrome nor do they remove parents as the first and only remedy. Do not be Fooled by the prestige of Boston Children’s Hospital–There is incompetence and greed everywhere.
This post presumes familiarity with the Justina Pelletier case and other similar cases where insiders now use the term “parentectomy”. I am concerned about the unusually high numbers of parent-Ectomies. The term is new and wreaks of something that could become a dangerous epidemic and a surreptitiously lucrative business for hospitals. Moreover, guess what? No one is watching. The regulatory agencies do nothing — —they and the hospitals swim in the same pond.
No one will do anything unless a patient has lots of– money, time, and emotional stamina to persevere through the lack of transparency and intentional efforts to conceal lies, medical malpractice, negligence, gross misconduct, and the felonious activities of hospital employees. (***No one will do anything until transparency is the rule and patients control their medical records and can make direct entries without permission.)
Word of caution: Tufts Medical Center’s Risk Management is not good! Their consistent inconsistency is a dead give-away of their FABRICATIONS.
In addition, the medical record is no longer evidence. In the medical records, the only reliable data may be the patient’s name and DOB. The entire medical record could be false, or made up by risk management at the hospital, and there could be multiple medical records designed to hide and deceive knowing the incompetence of those paid to oversee.
Patients have NO control over what is written in their medical records– hospitals and their employee’s control THE CONTENT of patients’ medical records is. When hospital employees commit wrongful acts and/or make mistakes –, their new risk management approach entails creating new medical records and creating false stories because no one will check the hospitals’ accuracy or stories despite glaring inconsistencies. Many people still trust Hospitals and their employees; doctors in particularly are considered pinnacles of society and morality and ethics–A myth. THis is a myth that needs to be dispelled.
Hospitals are unaccountable. There are too many people to blame. Why would hospitals engage in these activities? Money, power, and corruption are the usual motivators, but in medicine, another more powerful motivator exists in academia: Getting Published!
Hospitals know government is inept; investigations are ludicrous, such as those performed by Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Hospitals also know that government and law enforcement have no jurisdiction over them, making hospitals above the law.
Hospitals and their employees defame, lie, forge and create many medical records, yet so-called investigations lack probable cause.
As with Tufts Medical Center and other Hospitals, Boston Children’s Hospital does whatever it wants to do. No one is going to STOP them. Hospitals can do whatever they want under the veil—or rather, guise—of medicine. Other doctors will not intervene; buzzwords keep them at bay. That secrecy and lack of transparency in medicine are leading to numerous unethical and illegal activities invisibly accepted by our complacence.
We trust and rely on a system of justice, and on ethics in medicine that do not exist anymore. The new system is above the law and costly in more dollars. On entering a hospitals, think of the Wild Wild West and sheriffs. Each hospital makes its own rules are that are recklessly violated daily, and who cares. ? These hospitals deliver harmful medical care not rooted in medicine, science, or ethics, and which, in other industries, would be considered illegal. Patients complaints result in patients labelled crazy, intoxicated, and/or unfit parents.
I was told I had hysteria by an MGH neurology resident (My Medical Journal), –supervised by an attending (experienced Professor at MGH/Harvard)–when I could barely walk. The two of them wanted wanted to me to see psychiatry start powerful psychiatric medications sounds familiar—too familiar. Tufts Medical Center is no hero; — it is possible unbeknownst to parents Tufts Medical Center recommended the parentectomy and now plays “good cop, bad cop.”
By the way, what research is being conducted under the auspices of the Internal Review Board and the Department of Psychiatry? I gather these fellows run the IRB, so research is rubber-stamped.
Resident physicians, and physicians poorly trained at Boston Children’s Hospital, are at play–, and they could also be responsible for decisions to perform parentectomies and/or staff defamed parents to justify such decisions. It does not matter; there is NO MEDICAL JUSTIFICATION. Look out for consistent inconsistencies in the stories of BCH and Tufts Medical Center. Do not let the prestigious name prevent common sense or deter the recognition of unethical, uncaring and inexperienced residents and apathetic doctors.

Meet Tanya. Her 17 year old daughter Jess died as consequence of medical errors. She had fainting spells for 4 years and neurologists claimed they were seizures. The family found out about the prolonged QT syndrome, but the doctors refused to listen to them. Finally Jess was seen by a cardiologist who claimed she did not have prolonged QT syndrome. Five of her tests were misread. After Jess died the cardiologist reviewed the Holter monitor, and it revealed she had the syndrome. Genetic analysis revealed her father carried the gene.
Jess died because her doctors refused to LISTEN and failed to properly review her tests. Patients and families can serve as an effective resour

Any culture of corruption and cruelty does not belong in medicine! It goes against health. I found such a culture at Tufts Medical Center:.
A culture rooted in the caste system, condoned by the powers at Tufts Medical Center and MCAD.; a power capable of altering medical records without penalty or remorse. A medical culture with no Hippocratic Oath–no healthcare for the lower caste; no justice, no patient rights and definitely no human rights –not a place for Americans. A culture where bullies rule and the law is meaningless, corruption runs deep at every level–all reasons why transparency is necessary.
Discrimination leads to poor medical care that causes harm. Such was the care I received at Tufts Medical Center last April of 2012.; care that defied logic because there were so many witnesses. Witnesses who remained silent while others mistreated and abused me in the Emergency Department, then went on to defame and alter my medical records. Defamation and RACIAL PROFILING in my medical records and documentation became powerful forces for poor and shoddy care and re-admission because no one cared to know what caused my fall.
In the emergency department for 17 hours, my phone calls to hospital administrators for HELP were ALL ignored. I was baffled that anyone could be treated in such an uncaring, unprofessional, and cruel manner. I sought answers from Tufts and justice from MCAD; none was forthcoming.
Why? An institutionalized Culture of Corruption and Cruelty prevails in hospital medicine. This institutional discrimination resulted in an inadequate medical evaluation, for which I now pay the price. Tufts Medical Center knows that it can lie, lie, and just keep lying. They have deep pockets, and I do not. We are in Massachusetts, Boston, where racism is alive, well protected, and worshipped.
As per the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) and Tufts Medical Center, discrimination cannot occur at Tufts because of its geographic location. It is located in an area that is non-white, and over 40% of its patients are non-white. This non-evidence was used by Tufts, and accepted by MCAD and a so-called “neutral” investigator who did not do her job. In addition, this blind acceptance of non-evidence, inconsistencies, and LIES by MCAD calls into question the credibility of the entire system and should be cause for further investigation for corruption.
There is corruption at MCAD, powerful enough to bury my case for a year, and conduct a sham investigation to reach a biased decision of lack of probable cause. NWhy does no one checking Tufts Medical Center’s LIES,lies? wThy?ere is no None LISTENING to the NIGGER…nigger.p Pay no heed to the IMPOSSIBILITY of Tufts’ assertions or the unprofessional conduct of their employees and administrators.
Tufts Medical Center implied in their arguments that the doctor, being Indian, disproved discrimination. Let us investigate further,; I say that because the doctor was from India, discrimination was more likely (given their caste system), and it was.
The culture and the news out of India show the country to be the most dangerous place for females because of the daily rapes of women. I believe that the doctor truly felt he was in India. He forgot the laws of this country. He had the perfect crew of followers. Willingly and without hesitation, they did all that they could to bring me down and worsen my already severely elevated blood pressure;. Tufts Medical Center did not care nor were they concerned about my health.
The Tufts Medical Center ED staff forgot their obligation to CARE for me and do no HARM.
We do not have a caste system. In my over 20+ years of practice, most of which was in the emergency room, I never saw such cruel and unprofessional behavior, mean-spirited dishonesty, and intentional defamatory documentation, along with violations of my privacy and confidentiality. I am only happy I was not alone with that doctor for any length of time…; perhaps it is good that he did not examine me.
I was treated shamefully, defamed by an incompetent and discriminatory emergency department doctor:. based on records received about one month ago in 12/2013, the doctor’s name is Sunil Shroff, MD. If you are not white and had this person as a medical provider, please get your medical records and review them carefully. His documentation of your problem may be false. Tufts Medical Center and the rest of Massachusetts does not care. Avoid Tufts Medical Center,; they discriminate and do not like black people,; they consider us NIGGERS.
Are there certain cultures more prone to abuse, discrimination and malpractice than other cultures? My experience suggests that may be the case. Big data may help to find the patterns that create cultures of corruption and cruelty, harming people and society. In the interim, it is up to us to report such vile, cruel attitudes and behaviors. The more we weed these deviant discriminatory people out of medicine, the better our health outcomes, and patient satisfaction, and the less costly our medical care will be.
Below are the stated providers–in at the Emergency Department at Tufts Medical Center. They are part of the Culture of Corruption and Cruelty that has taken control of medicine. WATCHatch OUT!!out!

I didn’t realize it, but I was representing myself. The process was not fair, and no one explained the rules! Such is life now how about justice?
Of Note: if your name does not belong on this list, please let me know. Tufts Medical Center’s charting is not very reliable.
Tufts Medical knowingly withheld evidence–my chart– that supported my complaints. Tufts is responsible for the action of its employees. I had a hearing on January 21, 2014 to appeal MCAD decision that was based on an INCOMPLETE CHART AND MUCH MISINFORMATION BY TUFTS MEDICAL CENTER and its EMPLOYEES. The case goes back to MCAD to do THEIR JOBS! What a sham to have an agency, meant to protect those subjected to discrimination, discriminate by not doing its job–it promotes discrimination..
