Strike Update Day 87 – (5/16/2008)

Day 87 – There was not much going on today because it was raining all day, it wouldn’t let up for a minute. The striking members are still strong and have been holding the line through rain, snow and freezing cold. If you think they are giving up and moving on, you are sorely mistaken.

My post yesterday has generated a lot of comments, some of which were quite amusing if it weren’t for the fact that they could possibly be true.

 

One person stated that the reason Helen is bunkered down inside the home is:

 

because they are protecting Helen’s many, many bags of gold. What once was known as “FORT INDEPENDENCE” has been turned into Sieger’s very own “FORT KNOX”. She has been bunkered down for 85 days in her “FORT KNOX” guarding all her many envelopes filled with CASH!! She has been sitting, eating, drinking and sleeping atop the massive wealth she has acquired, in fear that it will all be taken away from her!!!

 

This picture pretty much sums it up…

Then another posted that Helen has create a concentration camp:

 

and for the record, many of us feel that the only people *NOT* involved in this strike that walks into that concentration camp that Sieger has bunkered down in are the families and residents.

 

If you look at all the pictures we have of this strike, you can form your own opinion about that comment, I have found three below that stood out in my mind.

The very bright and noisy “compound” lights.

 

dscn1982.jpg
The big intimidating security guards.

And of course the Gestapo secuirty guard with the big German Shepard.

 

If you are a neighbor of Helen’s here on Cannon and Giles Places, you will never forget what she has done to the neighborhood since purchasing the nursing home from the previous owners.

 

  • Dug up the whole front of the nursing home for parking and destroyed the beauty of the place
  • Purchased a house adjacent to the nursing home on Giles Place, demolished it during the Christmas holiday season. Then left a big hole for several years until the city came and filled it in.
  • Purchased a house on Giles Place to tear down and make a parking lot, makes perfect sense build a parking lot between two other existing private homes on a street that has nothing but private homes. Since she couldn’t do this (by law) she has left the house empty and abandoned for many years.

 

This is only part of what she has done to our neighborhood, here is some reading for you to see what others have to say about Helen:

 

( Excerpt from the web page )

As the New York Post reported:
“A respected Manhattan lawyer finds himself in a legal tangle after claiming a women involved in a bizarre and notorious divorce case tried to bride him.

 

Tom Shanahan made the bombshell allegations about Helen Sieger in a letter to state Supreme Court Justice Nicholas Figueroa, who’s presiding over her suit against the Union of Orthodox Rabbis, court records show.

 

Figueroa wasn’t exactly grateful: He reported the lawyer to the Disciplinary Committee for sending him ‘clearly prejudicial” information about Sieger.

 

It’s outrageous, said Shanahan…, I think I did the absolute right thing.”

 

Mr. Shanahan continues to stand by his statement and has a witness to the events. He is still subject to discipline for his actions. The individual was never referred to the any authority based upon Mr. Shanahan’s complaint and allegations.

 

Also it seems that there needs to be higher standards set for nursing homes and or the governing agencies that watch them, have a look at a story about another nursing home where a family used hidden cameras to prove neglect was happening and that reports were falsified.

Highgate out of the nursing home business – Times Union Blog

 

I just hope for the residents of KHRCC that everything is being done properly inside and that they are being cared for in the manner in which they should be. After all this is supposed to be the golden years of some of these residents lives, don’t we owe it to them to treat them like gold? These are the same people that raised us so that we could grow up and enjoy life, this could be our Grandparents or Parents inside this nursing home.

 

Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!

    Monsieur, Je ne suis pas une différence avec vous. Vous avez fait une petite erreur. Helen Sieger n’a pas acheté la maison de soins infirmiers de l’ancien propriétaire, son père, car ils ne voulaient pas que rien avoir à faire avec elle. À la lumière de tout ce qui est actuellement en cours, je ne suis pas étonnant why.What une erreur tragique. jusqu’à ce que la prochaine fois.

    Ok, while I can appreciate different languages and also have the ability to use Google translator, it would be nice if you could post in English or at least both languages so everyone can understand.

Kennedy

    Hey, did you see what it said in that AG Cuomo’s press release? Not only the owners, but

    . . . . .
    “Five employees of Highgate were convicted last year for patient neglect and falsifying records, including: Licensed Practical Nurses Teresa Loy, Renee Fulmer and Mary Kenyon, and Certified Nurse Aides Steve Nadeau and Judy Abreu-Boswell.”

    Polski do wszystkich moich braci i siostry w sprawie strajku linia jest i musi pozostać zjednoczona strong.The Polski ludzie są bardzo silne ludzi. Musisz pamiętać, co Lech Wałęsa, założyciel Solidarności, powiedział: “wysiłki ludzi z Polski spowodowało, i nadal to zrobić, do poczucia solidarności i zrozumienia całego świat”. To all my Polish brothers and sisters on the strike line,you must stay united and strong.The Polish people are very strong people. You must remember what Lech Walesa, founder of Solidarity said ” the strivings of the Polish people gave rise, and still do, to the feelings of understanding and solidarity all ovethe world’.

I THINK ONE ARTICLE WAS LEFT OUT……..IT WAS AN ARATICLE IN THE ‘NEW YORK’ MAGAZINE….ABOUT ‘SOMETHING ROTTEN IN BOROUGH PARK” IT JUST MAKES YOU WONDER “WHAT IS SHE THINKING?” MY MAIN CONCERN IN THIS WHOLE MESS , IS THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE PATIENTS THAT ARE CONFINED INSIDE….ARE THEY GETTING THE CARE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE GIVEN????? ARE THEY BEING WASHED WITH REAL SOAP??? ARE THEY BEING CHANGED IN A TIMELY MANNER????? ARE THEY BEING FED THE PROPER AMOUNTS??? ARE THEY PARTICIPATING IN ACTIVITIES OR ARE THEY SITTING IN FRONT OF THE NURSES STATION?????? IS THERE ENOUGH STAFF TO O AROUND????? ARE THEY TRAINED PROPERLY???? DO THEY HAVE THEIR CERTIFICATIONS?????? VACCINATIONS??????TB TESTS???????BLOOD TESTS????????SCREENED FOR COMMUNICABLE DISEASES??????? WHICH REMINDS ME…..HOW COME WE HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT THAT CNA DORKAL TENZIN THAT DIED AWHILE AGO?????? WHAT ARE THEY HIDING?????????? HEY GUYS..WHY DON’T YOU GIVE US SOME OF THOSE ANSWERS INSTEAD OF THE USUAL DRIVEL ABOUT HOW GREAT YOU ALL ARE AND HOW MUCH YOU ALL LOVE HELEN…….BECAUSE YOU CAN’T………WHY DON’T YOU LET US IN TO SEE FOR OURSELVES?????????????

  11. Isaac Nortey

    You are right in your comments, Helen and her cohorts have nothing satisfactory inside the nursing home to show to the public.
    Part of the hidden game stem from the the so called state inspectors who unfortunately are been paid by greedy Helen

  12. Phil

    Former Pres:

     

    I beg to differ with you, the first link was just that! In case you need it again, here it is:

     

    An Un-Orthodox Divorce

     

    As for you ’employee’:

     

    You spelled your favorite persons name incorrectly, or perhaps maybe you didn’t “HELLen”…

     

    I think it is a wonderful idea that the Former Pres said, if everything is so peachy, why not let us, the neighborhood residents in for a tour?

     

    Isaac:

     

    I am glad you finally said that, my thoughts were along the same lines about the inspector(s), either paid or just totally incompetent! But that still doesn’t absolve the DOH of their duties to fully investigate what is going on, they should have an army of inspectors here since day one of the strike.

     

  13. FORMER FIPNA PRESIDENT

    I STAND CORRECTED…..BUT IT’S GOOD THAT IT’S POSTED TWICE…..MAYBE SOMEONE READING IT FOR THE SECOND TIME WILL FINALLY GET IT……..I LIKE USING THEIR BY-LINE CHANGED TO SUIT OUR PLIGHT ‘THERE IS SOMETHING REALLY ROTTEN IN KINGSBRIDGE HEIGHTS REHABILITATION CARE CENTER”…………. IF IT TRULY IS ONLY ONE AND THE SAME INSPECTOR ,EVERY TIME, THEN EITHER SHE HAS LINED HER POCKETS WITH A FEW PIECES OF SILVER OR SHE IS TOTALLY,ABSOLUTELY,UNBELIEVABLY INCOMPETENT………BUT THEN AGAIN MOST CITY AGENCIES DO TEND TO HIRE INCOMPETENT PEOPLE….LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BOARD OF HEALTH AND THE BUILDINGS DEPARTMENT……..I DON’T THINK THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IS TOO FAR BEHIND THEM……….

  14. Pink Panther

    How incredibly cruel and vicious to use such scare tactics.To put up all those “searchlights” and to hire a “gestapo” security guard and German Shepherd and all those cameras in constant motion and then to hire new security guards whose logo is SS. It is a mockery of all the people that suffered and died in concentration camps. This all done knowing the striking workers of European descent would realize this and be intimidated. But Hellen it has backfired on you. You are the one who is being mocked and intimidated. You shall pay dearly for your actions in the end. For evil never wins.

  15. employee

  16. Former Employee

    otay martin, whateva. let’s see if you will be singin the same tune after the strike is over–****^^

  17. jman

    Just for the people’s information one of your FIPNA members comes to visit her friend at least one a week. Her friend has been a resident of KHHCF for many years. Her(the FIPNA member) picture is proudly displayed in one of your group shots at the rally. of May 3rth So when she does visit she has full access to the facility., to see if anything is going on that does not seem okay.

  18. Phil

    employee:

     

    First this is my blog so the question is what are you doing watching it 24 x 7?

     

    jman:

     

    We are well aware of our member that visits her friend, what makes you think that she states everything is fine in there? Why don’t you let Myself, Lynn and or Karen in? Now that you reminded me about our member, maybe I will join her on her next visit as a guest of hers or will your security be waiting at the door for me?

     

  19. FORMER FIPNA PRESIDENT

    HEY JMAN WE OUTED YOU ALREADY SO WHY YOU STILL HIDING BEHIND JMAN………HELEN WE KNOW IT’S YOU AND JACOB…..SO GIVE THE AKA’S A REST ALREADY………..AND MARTY-BOY YOU’RE NOT FOOLING ANYBODY EITHER……..I TELL YOU WHAT…..HERE’S THE DEAL….I WILL BE THERE TO TAKE A TOUR THROUGH THE ENTIRE FACILITY THIS WEEKEND……….HOW ABOUT THAT????? OR WILL YOU SIC YOUR GUARDS ON ME????? I DON’T REALLY SEE HOW YOU CAN STOP ME, SINCE YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHO I AM OR WHAT I LOOK LIKE……….AND OF COURSE I WILL HAVE A HIDDEN CAMERA………

  20. Money Man (Patrick)

    FOR ISAAC:

    Funny how all the newspaper reports mention the DOH inspectors visiting daily and saying everything is fine. They don’t show up daily, and when they do, many times they’re out of the facility in less than five minutes. I wonder if the DOH and their inspectors would care to explain to the public the numerous videos of this.

  21. Money Man (Patrick)

    Phil:

    If the ‘Devil’ and her minions try to stop you from visiting – just proves my point its a concentration camp. Even penitentiaries let prisoners have occassional visits.

    As for the comment on her ‘SS’ guards…I am totally amazed that a former Hassidim (former, in that no self-respecting religious person would even dream of going where this creature has gone)would even dream of doing what she has done. SS guards, 24/7 Floodlights, guard dogs, etc. Your pictures are worth more than a thousand words.

    If this doesn’t show the DOH this woman is completely unstable and inelligible to run a facility providing healthcare to the infirmed and elderly – nothing will.

  22. Karen

    Helen, what are you afraid of? Let us in, we want to see what is going on? If you are so sure that you are right, then you have nothing to hide. . . . Oh, and by the way, not only have you not maintained the home on Giles Place, you forgot to pay the taxes. What’s up with that? Soon we will buy it in rem . . .

  23. Pink Panther
