    Jerry

    Friday 17 May 2019 I spotted this little bugger dragging himself across a stony driveway in front of a local pig farm/piggery. Put him in my lunch bag and took him home. Dried him and rapped him up in a nice warm towel for the night. Told him if he survived the night I'd take him to the vet in the morning for a check over and everything else a kitten gets done. Saturday morning He's a battler! Took him to the Vet. Vet takes guess at his age - a week old if that! As I have never had to raise any cat from a young age before, they always seem to turn up at the front door when at least a couple of years old or older so giving this one a home and raising it is a totally new experience for me. It had to be bottle fed every two and a half hours 24 hours a day for the first week so I arranged for "Jerry" to be looked after by the vet. Two weeks later he's home. I now know what it's like for parents with a new born baby in the house, after only two days I am very tired and have black rings below my eye's! But he's totally worth it. To be continued. Please check back regularly for updates.

    School Bullies in NZ

    Pukekohe High School reveals medical details to bullies James Baker14:16, Jun 07 2019 A 13-year-old student is afraid to return to class after high school staff revealed sensitive medical details to the bullies that were tormenting her. When Susan informed Pukekohe High School her daughter was being bullied, she thought they would protect her. She contends that for months her daughter Claire, had been harassed by a group of five girls. But after dozens of phone calls and two meetings with school staff Susan became increasingly frustrated. "I was told during the second meeting my daughter 'needs to grow a spine'." https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/113021958/pukekohe-high-school-reveals-medical-details-to-bullies I've just quoted a small part of that story and suggest if you haven't read the full story on the Stuff website then you will not see the reason why I'm about to give my five cents (increased from 2 cents to five cents because of inflation) on this, and the bullies on this Internet commonly known as cyberbullies! If a student is bullied at school and their parents contact the school to lodge a complaint then the school should immediately investigate the allegation/s and also contact the parents of the alleged bully or bullies and if the bullying continues the parents should be charged with allowing their children to bully/harass another student. Cyberbullies. I have and still are being targeted by one cyberbully. Whilst I was a member of another online forum that discussed ACC issues, I, along with a number of other members were straight-out accused of being involved in an conspiracy to have that forum's alleged owner/administrator arrested and charged with a criminal offense - read all about it here NZHerald - ACC bomb plot: Plans for van blast Alan Thomas has much to be ashamed of. He also had a prior criminal conviction for which he served a jail sentence for. He allegedly allowed his forum to become a kangaroo court so-to-speak where a select group of that forum's members, including myself, were Criminally Harassed day and night from the time (or there about) the Police turned up at his front door in regards to what he was charged with! For us members that were accused of being involved anything we wrote in our defense did nothing to stop the filthy abuse, slander, threats, stalking, intimidation etc that we were subjected to! I am extremely proud to have been among some very good people on that forum (most of whom are now members of this new & safer - moderated - forum). As soon as the "Attacks" started some members began to investigate as to who was behind all the personal attacks - to cut a long (and very interesting) story short, it was soon established as to who this cyberbully or bullies were. It all began with a person on that site who uses the "user name" of "David Butler". Not really sure if that is his or her real name but the same member is known to use many many usernames on that forum. "Snoopy" and Hemi" are two of many that he has. Another person exposed as being (allegedly) involved in that kangaroo court was this person - From the NZHearald - Man accused of suppression breach and here - Blogger dodges prison over court suppression breaches, harassment campaigns NZHerald 26 Jul, 2018 1:10pm From that unsafe forum I quote the following and this one with a response from Alan Thomas and another from Alan Thomas And this one If I were in a much better financial position than what I find myself being in since being fucked around and scammed by the ACC I would have taken legal action against those above mentioned on that accforum.org To this day Alan Thomas continues to write his verbal diarrhea. His forum should be seized by the Court as it is nothing else but a totally dangerous website while Thomas is in control of it! Thousands of incriminating posts have already disappeared from there. It appears Mr Thomas is totally crapping himself at the possibility of again appearing in a criminal court! On Criminal Harassment charges and for allowing others to use his forum for criminal harassment activity etc! And so he should be!

    It's 2019 - Has ACC improved or not?

    Quoted from a story found here https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/113241329/physiotherapist-who-overbilled-acc-fined-5000-and-suspended "The ACC system depends on the integrity and honesty of its treatment providers ... it is operated on trust." ACC in my opinion should also be investigating it's own staff! But they won't because they have much to hide! Attention ACC, Watch this topic!

    Injury Coverd by ACC

    In your first post you wrote From the start when ACC first declined my doctors claim I would say whole prosses has taken about 10 months so far, it has been a stressful time having to engage with ACC and ACC Advocate/Lawyer/Review Prosses/Hand Surgeon. Do you still have an advocate representing you? You are entitled to request a full & unedited copy of your injury files from the ACC and if you haven't already got a copy of your file get onto that asap. Once in receipt of your file go through it as the ACC are known to remove documents from claimants files. Going thru your file you'll hopefully find out where they plucked that injury date from. If it is in the file then there should also be the medical note/s from the hospital/dr If there are no notes for that injury then ask ACC where all that info is! Golden rule - Everything in writing. and ... if you do ever have a face to face meeting with the ACC just keep smiling at them all the time you are there in their office. It confuses the crap out of them!

    Injury Coverd by ACC

    To be honest, going to the hospital as a child in the 70's was a traumatic experience in itself... Brings back memories of an old Insane Asylum, not very child-friendly. As far as Hospital/Family GP records go there was nothing, its strange because my Hospital and Family GP records only date back to the early 1990's nothing in the 80's/70's And that's the reason why ACC initially declined my doctors claim for ACC?. I haven't spoken to anyone from ACC for 7-8 months, the funny thing is I received an e.mail from ACC stating "We are pleased to approve cover for the following injury(s) that happened on 29/10/1980." It's not a big deal... I think it would be nice to know where they got that date from?? or is that just a random date they pick.

    Used blog to harass and intimidate people

    May as well contribute another post on this thread. This person is already mentioned on this forum elsewhere thought they should all be together. quoted from http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11429608 Blogger who named teens gets name suppression 5:41 PM Wednesday Apr 8, 2015 Rob Kidd is a NZME. News Service court reporter based in Auckland. A blogger accused of breaching a high-profile name suppression has been granted name suppression himself. The 51-year-old appeared in Auckland District Court today facing two charges of contravening suppression orders made by Justice Helen Winkelmann - the former chief High Court judge, newly appointed to the Court of Appeal. The Auckland-based blogger, who writes about corruption in New Zealand, is also charged with five counts of criminal harassment. The complainants include a politician, civil servants, a real estate agent and the former partner of an Auckland businessman - all of whom feature prominently on his website. It is alleged that both in August and December last year, the defendant named and posted photographs of two teens involved in a high-profile attack that left another teenager dead. Their names and images, which were specifically suppressed by Justice Winkelmann at sentencing in the High Court at Auckland, are still up on the blog. Breaching suppression carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison and/or a fine of up to $100,000. The five people who the defendant allegedly harassed are all regular targets on his blog and have been the subject of his vitriol over a significant period of time. His alleged actions occurred between December 2012 and July 2014. The blogger could face up to two years in jail if found guilty. It is understood he has pleaded not guilty to the charges and will be back before the court next month. The issue of his name suppression will be revisited at that appearance. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11429608

    "The Patient describes going back to his house, then attending the emergency department at the Hospital. He does not appear to have then undergone formal exploration or GA surgery but describes what sounds like, having LA infiltrated, the wound cleaned and washed and simply sutured together. It is not clear because there are no existing records of this whether the hand was formally assessed, or whether there was a suspicion of nerve or tendon injury at the time." He does not appear to have then undergone formal exploration or GA surgery Way back in those years this was, in my opinion, happened to many people! You go to A&E (or your gp) They see an open cut, they wash it, they stitch it, they say good bye and good luck to you! Have you attempted to get a copy of your hospital history file? They should still have a record of your visit even if it was 40 odd years ago.

    Injury Coverd by ACC

    Hello... I don't know if this is the place to post?... I don't even know what happened to the old forum??? This is a quick recap of my injury and update of my current situation with ACC... Some of the information is from the Hand Specialists/Surgeons notes, who examined my left hand. Between the ages of 7/10-1978/1980, I was playing/climbing a tree I jumped down with both hands hitting the ground, I sustained a transverse laceration across the left heel of the hand to my wrist. "The Patient describes going back to his house, then attending the emergency department at the Hospital. He does not appear to have then undergone formal exploration or GA surgery but describes what sounds like, having LA infiltrated, the wound cleaned and washed and simply sutured together. It is not clear because there are no existing records of this whether the hand was formally assessed, or whether there was a suspicion of nerve or tendon injury at the time." "It is unclear given the medical notes not present, and the time since the injury, as to whether the median and ulnar nerve injuries were partial or complete. and the patchy motor and sensory loss is related to an incomplete and partial recovery or an initial partial injury, however, he does have clear signs and symptoms relating to both nerves rather than a single nerve distrubution. In the absence of any deteriorating functional symptoms, given the length of time since injury, I think it is highly unlikely there would be anything beneficial to do in terms of either investigating or operating to try and improve function. Sensory recovery this long after the injury would have plateaued and would be impossible to improve," 40 years. ACC has approved cover for the injury to my left hand, I don't know if that covers the fatigue feeling I have/get in my left arm or if it's connected to the pain I have in my left shoulder the symptoms I have are similar to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, I had the option to see a pain specialist I declined the offer because surgery is not an option at this stage and I don't know/understand what a pain specialist could do?, The Hand Specialist/Surgeons said I have compensated well for my loss of function over the years? From the start when ACC first declined my doctors claim I would say whole prosses has taken about 10 months so far, it has been a stressful time having to engage with ACC and ACC Advocate/Lawyer/Review Prosses/Hand Surgeon. Thank you for your help.

    Could Lupine or someone who is more knowledgeable than myself on ACC Acts and Sections etc explain what Section 221 (2) and Schedule 4 C 22 are? That is a very well written letter Lupine.
