    Gerald's Story: Nursing home and drug abuse of an elderly man

    in Family

    Patrice Gilgan joins us this evening to expose the abuse and drugging of her father at the hands of doctors and nursing home workers in two different facilities in Orange County, California.  The first instance of abuse both physical and with drugs occured at Irvine Cottage Board and Care where Gerald had been sent to recover from brain surgery.  Gerald was drugged within 24 hours of admittance to the home with massive doses of Haldol, Seroqel and overdosed on morphine.  There was no prescription for the morphine.  Cottage Board and Care is operated by St Joseph Hospice, a Catholic enterprise.


    At a second facility, Villa Valencia Skilled Nursing, (a St Michael Hospice and another Catholic owned  enterprise), Gerald was given 7 different drugs.  None of these drugs were to be used on brain injured or individuals suffering from dementia.  When Gerald was finally freed from this facility and hospitalized again, it took more than two weeks for him to respond due to the massive drug overload in his system.


    Videos of Gerald, and of some of the abuse he endured are available on the you tube channel;  Ireland Dallas


    Gerald Gilgan was a retired New York City Fire Fighter.  This man did not deserve this callous treatment.  No one does.  Yet it happens to the elderly every day here in the US.

    3 Simple Health Strategies For Seniors
    How to make lifestyle choices that lead to health and wellness.


    Families with aging loved ones can help guide decision making for happier, healthier family members. Here are three simple health strategies for seniors that will help to make a positive, long lasting difference.


    Get to the Root of Restless Sleep
    Sleep declines with age naturally, and by age 70, a typical night of rest is just over 6 hours. A trip to the doctor can often uncover the root of sleep issues, whether it’s chronic pain, improper medications or something more serious.


    Boost Immunity With Smart Diet Choices
    A robust immune system is vital for reducing the risk of getting sick and staying healthy year round. Great foods for supporting immunity are vegetables, fruits and whole grains.


    Skilled In Home Nursing For Safety, Guidance and Care
    Professional in home care offers a loved one the assistance they need to age at home independently. Help administering medicine, light housekeeping, even running errands helps seniors stay confident and independent.

    Ebola and Nursing Students

    in Health

    Nursing students must enter healthcare facilities to meet the clinical component of nursing education. With the recent diagnosis of clients with Ebola on US soil and the CDC's changing guidelines, nursing educators are engaged in conversations on how this affects students. What are the students saying? With all the information that has been reported and debated in the media, there is no doubt that students may have concerns on how this affect them. Does anyone expect that a nursing student would be asked to care for someone diagnosed with Ebola? Do we have to re-think our approach to education on infection control? Let's have a conversation about that.
