Strike Update Day 88 & 89 – (5/17/2008 – 5/18/2008)

Day 88 & 89 (Weekend Wrap-up) – Well after Fridays post and all the comments that followed I would say that the weekend was quite calm. The strike line was still strong but somber as Monday is the day of services for Audrey and Tuesday will be the funeral.

 

Since there is not much to report this weekend I will have a look back at some of the comments that were made on Fridays post.

 

“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.”

 

This is interesting because if there are employees that are falsifying records they too can be held accountable. Didn’t Mr. Scab (Martin) say at one point that he was correcting records that Jackie did incorrectly?

 

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

 

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.

 

So it seems that the union may be onto something here if both of these comments are true, how can the inspectors claim to be there daily but yet many have said they do not show up daily. Does the DOH have records of their visits? What about the number of inspectors, is there only one assigned to Kingsbridge? If so I think it is high time the DOH should send some others in.

 

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.

 

While this is true a FIPNA member does visit a friend at least once a week if not more, I don’t know where you come off thinking that she is the one we are getting our information from. There are many family members that speak out against KHRCC and there would be many more except that they fear retribution to their family member residing in KHRCC.

 

Here is one family member that has a lot to say about Kingsbridge, Stan Funches has an Aunt that is currently residing in KHRCC. He is always a pleasure to talk to and has many things to say, you can view his video here, or on youtube.com

 

 

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 . . .

 

This is my thought too, why don’t you let us in to see what is going on? If you have nothing to hide and all is well, then let us come in and see for ourselves. I personally would have no problem reporting my findings here for all to see.

 

Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!

    Mon Dieu, monsieur et madames, nes pa, she will never let you in! She is stupid but not that stupid! She has way too much to hide and she doesn’t want anyone to get that close to her m-o-n-e-y!! She’s going to need every last penny for where she is going! You need a lot of m-o-n-e-y to buy all the necessities of the life she has become accustomed to! Only I don’t think you can wear Prada or Gucci– maybe she can give them to her loving employees, who can wear them for their job interviews. Because the House of Hellen is going d-o-w-n! d-o-w-n! d-o-w-n! Adieu! mes ami!

  2. mr. scab

    martin wasnt correcting by actually fixing her things you putz, but by doing his work correctly. two points:

    1) if the lion is so strong why is he never out when it rains?

    2) this blog shows, me included, why having too much time on your hands is bad. you people are just all so pathetic. see you in hell.

    martin

    ps if you all put this much effort into studying, you would be much better off… but then again i guess you all like this area, the fifth ave of the bronx ey?

  3. mr. scab

    do you really all think im that stupid honestly. after all i was born bright, it is one of the many perks of being jewish. shalom. martin

  4. Rosa Martinez

    Hey, I’m down for this. We can all go visit a resident.We can find out some of their names and say we’re long lost family. who can say no to that? Vamanos muchachos!

  5. Former employee

    Man you may be smart but you sure is ugly! and no matter how smart you can’t fix ugly inside an out!

  6. mr. scab

    ummm you moron actually you can fix ugly on the out…. but you cant change brains…. jesus, and you people are adults? my god, you are the reason i want to move away to canada one day…. but i shouldnt be mad at yall…. simple minds can only produce simple comments i guess. shalolm and good night yall.

  7. mr. scab

    btw it is you sure ARE ugly not IS…. thanks for proving my point

  8. mr. scab

    ps… i invite you to visit a resident…. ill even sign u in. what is the wager though?

  9. jman

    Why dont you speak with the ombudsman who comes to visit on a regular basis and who sees and speaks to all the residents of their cares and concerns. Believe it or not they have nothing to complain about. As far as the DOH coming on a daily basis do your homework and get the facts straight, they are there at all different times of the day, starting at 6am thru later hours in the day. They make their rounds , stay for at least 5 to 6 hours. Check charts. You people from this FIPNA group only imagine negative things are going on at KHHC, why dont you find something positive to say. You only print what you feel is true with nothing to back it up. One family complained why is that patient still be cared for at KHHC. Nothing in this world is going to be perfect , but KHHC is doing great, has a loving caring group of employees who are strong and brave enough to cross your picket line and listen to the verbal abuse they take from the picketers and still walk thru the doors onto their assigned units with a smile on their face , grateful to have a job that they are very well trained for and documented and licensed to do, and get paid handsomely for it. Mrs. Seiger has nothing to hide and is and should be very proud of her dedicated staff …. all you people talk about is her money, first of all it is none of your business how much money she does or does not have, her designer clothes(could be knockoffs), is your only interest now seems to be focusing on her money lately. I can guarentee you if Audry passed away February 19th there would be a collection for her family, a few would go to her wake and funeral and we would all feel horrible for losing a dear and special lady, but the way this is being handle is so unlike the union, hiring buses which could have been spent to help the strikers get their medication. Again we are all devasted by her untimely passing but never have I seen such drama for an employee passing. Dont get me wrong it is a beautiful send off for her, but dont use Audrey to make Mrs. Seiger look bad. As far as pretending to be visiting just to look around to see what is going on what is the point of that. You FIPNAettes seem to know everything that goes on inside the doors of KHHC while I think the more experienced people and professional (DOH ombusdsmans)who are more trained and know if there is anything that is wrong. To accuse someone of taking money is a disgrace and anyone who thinks that would be so wrong, get your information from the proper sources and dont say or think things when you have no basis to prove anything.

  10. FIPNA MAN

    One question, what is KHHC?

  11. FIPNA ette 101

    Another Question: Who is Mrs. Seiger?

     

    I guess you don’t even know who your boss is? Why do you call her Mrs. Sieger?

  12. employee

    FIPNA MAN>>>PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES YOU MORON!!

  13. FIPNA MAN

    Let’s see —
    #1 – KHHC
    #2 – SEIGER
    #3 – OMBUSDSMANS
    There are more as well but I just thought I would point out the simpler ones so you could understand. Considering jman thinks he/she knows everything… you would think he/she knows the correct initials of the place.

  14. FIPNA ette 101

    Ok, let us start from the beginning (as I am ette 101, the teacher!).

     

    There are the people inside the nursing home – the “insiders.”

     

    Then, there are the rest of us. First, there is the FIPNA community people. We live in the small homes and large apartment buildings. We live around the nursing home; we like where we live; and we define the neighborhood! We have nothing to do with the strike, and we run this blog.

     

    Part of our family of neighbors always included the staff (now on strike) at the nursing home. This is a community feeling that long time workers know about, and that scabs would not be able to understand.

     

    To the insiders (those who don’t understand): Try to keep this straight in your minds when you write to us.

     

    Now about the written word. Mistakes are one thing. The most recent remarks by the “insiders” is quite another thing. Calling people names and/or cursing (even in other languages) are characteristics of illiterate and immature persons. This method of communication is generally used by those who have little to say and no facts to back it up. Rather than express yourself, you are confusing the reader. Let’s see if you can keep it simple.

     

    From dictionary.com you can find the definition of the word — moron.

     

    1. a person who is notably stupid or lacking in good judgment.

     

    2. Psychology. a person of borderline intelligence in a former classification of mental retardation, having an intelligence quotient of 50 to 69.

  15. Phil

    MARTIN (mr. scab) – Let me see, how do I even address your total stupidity? You say you were fixing not correcting, please tell me the difference.

     

    You say others have too much time on their hands, have you looked in a mirror lately? You are the one running home from work and posting on this blog, I am amazed that you can actually find the time as I have been told you are usually surfing for let’s just say “Adult Entertainment”. This is my blog so I have every right to monitor it 24 hours a day, I also make a large amount of my income working online.

     

    This actually was a very good neighborhood until Helen became a blight on this community. If you follow along with this blog you have seen for yourself what has happened to this community since Helen took over the nursing home.

     

    You say you were born bright, did you mean born under Helen’s bright lights? If you are as bright as you say, why is it you are stuck working here at KHRCC for “Aunt Helen” as you called her? Why are you working in a job that the only requirements are to be 16 years of age? Many neighborhood residents held that job too when they were teenagers, but then moved on to real world employment.

     

    Lastly, you asked what the wager is to visit a resident? How about this, we will all gladly pay your one-way ticket to Canada if everything is as good as you all keep spouting it is. So when can we come visit?

     

    JMAN – It is funny how you can come here and write a book for us to read, but yet you don’t even know the initials of your workplace or how to spell your boss’s name.

     

    Now for what you are saying, I would print something positive if I had something positive to write. Why don’t you give me something? Why don’t you let us in to see how great things are? I personally would love to see all the signs hanging saying “We Love Helen”, who put these up anyway?

     

    We have had more than just one family complaining and did you ever think that the family that is there can’t move their family member due to financial constraints or they don’t want to put undue stress on the elderly resident?

     

    The name Audrey should never come across your lips again, you people threw her into the street along with her co-workers because Helen didn’t want to pay for health care. You say we should not worry about Helen’s money but yet she is making this money off the backs of her employees that she now threw out, how long do you think it will take her to replace you? Would you even be here sticking up for her if you were not getting paid by her? There are many many many people sticking up for the union that are not getting paid, myself included. This should show you who is on the side of right!

     

    As for visiting, I never said I would pretend to visit just so I could look around. I am asking you directly to allow me to come in and look around, like I said before if you are so sure everything is fine then what have you got to hide? I have no problem writing the good or the bad.

     

    It is funny to me that KHRCC never has any comments for anyone, but they come here under pseudo-names and spew a bunch of words that mostly add up to meaningless drivel.

     

  16. Pink Panther

    Mon Dieu, Mes amis, do not let this jman? nes pa? fool you – it is the BIG lady herself – HELLEN, do not fall for the few mistakes – it is only used to cover the fact that it is SHE. She like the rest of her cohorts finally succumbed to the temptation to respond, they cannot help themselves they must they are to be pitied for it is they who are so simple minded by thinking we are so foolish as to video only a few hours a day, non, we do how you say, 24/7 just like SHE – no one is so worried about her m-o-n-e-y except maybe they who check into fraud for that is where you are wrong when you say it’s no ones business SHE, HELLEN is the one that is worried, worried that it is all going to be taken away when she goes up the river. You speak of Audrey Smith-Campbell, and you say if it had happened on Feb. 19 you would have taken collection for her family – you are one cold hearted b—h, she worked for you ever since you bought KHRCC, see even I get it right, and you did absolutely n-o-t-h-i-n-g, you should hang your head in shame, but then you have no shame, do you? you are going to burn in HELL HELLEN ***

  17. FIPNA MAN

    You are wrong, Helen probably did do something! She probably sent her token floral arrangement to the funeral home. She is known to do this, even to one of our dearest FIPNA members that recently passed away.

  18. A GOOD CHRISTIAN WOMAN

    I really would appreciate it martin if you do not take our Lord’s name in vain. I’m sure as a good jewish boy you were taught not to mock other religions. May the Good Lord have mercy on your soul.

  19. Rosa Martinez

    he’s back!! I knew he couldn’t stay away. people who have addiction problems [diet soda] just can’t stop. too bad he never has anything of value to say.a light bulb is brighter.

  20. FORMER FIPNA PRESIDENT

    MR. PINK PANTHER, I THINK YOU HAVE COME TO THE WRONG CONCLUSION, IT IS NOT SIEGER BUT DEAR SISTER NADINE ,WHO HAS FINALLY WEIGHED IN……..WHY YOU MAY ASK……HER ‘FAUX PA’ OF USING KHHC, WHICH WAS THE ORIGINAL LETTERING, WAS HER FIRST MISTAKE..THE NEXT WAS WHEN SHE SAID”MAYBE THEY’RE KNOCKOFFS’ IN REFERENCE TO SIEGERS DESIGNER APPAREL……..DOES ANYONE REALLY BELIEVE THAT SIEGER WOULD BE CAUGHT DEAD IN KNOCKOFFS??????? AS FOR WORRYING ABOUT HER MONEY, WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE’S ENOUGH LEFT TO REPAIR EVERYTHING THAT SHE HAS DESTROYED…….SINCE SHE ACQUIRED THE NURSING HOME, UNDER FALSE PRETENSES,BECAUSE THE BORITZERS DIDN’T WANT HER TO GET HER HANDS ON THE NURSING HOME,SHE HAS DONE NOTHING BUT DESTROY WHATEVER SHE PUTS HER HAND TO……..I’M GLAD TO SEE NADINE, THAT YOU’;RE USING THE EDUCATION, THAT AUNTIE HELEN PAID FOR, SOMEWHAT…….BY YOUR LOYALTY TO SIEGER, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT LOYALTY, IT’S ONLY AS GOOD AS THE MONEY BUYING IT……..I’M REALLY SURPRISED AT YOU, YOU’VE BEEN AROUND A VERY LONG TIME, DO YOU THINK WE WOULD BE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO TAKE THE WORD OF ONE PERSON????????? HOW NAIVE YOU ARE……… AS I SAID IN A PREVIOUS POST, I WILL BE THERE THIS WEEKEND TO TOUR THE FACILITY…….I’M SURE YOU WILL WELCOME ME WITH OPEN ARMS, SINCE YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE………..OR BETTER YET, SINCE YOU CLAIM THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE,LET A SMALL DELEGATION OF COMMUNITY RESIDENTS SEE FOR THEMSELVES, SO WE CAN PUT AN END TO ALL THE QUESTIONS AND ACCUSATIONS THAT HAVE RISEN SINCE THE STRIKE BEGAN………..WE ARE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING YOUR RESPONSE………SINCE YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE……….AND DEAR SISTER NADINE, I WOULDN’T QUIT MY DAY JOB IF I WERE YOU………….

  23. FIPNA MEMBER since 1980

    I’ve been in there and everything is not good. The floors are dirty and sticky and it smells, they spray but you can’t cover up the underlying odors.

  24. employee

    fipna member: the one who stinks is you!!!!!!!! don’t blame it on KHRCC!!! AND YOU KNOW it’s true//

  25. FIPNA ette 101

    Guess the “employee” has nothing more to say, no work to do, and can only type childish banter . . . . ga . . ga . . goo . . goo . . .

  26. FORMER FIPNA PRESIDENT

    THAT’S # 7 ….ALL IN ONE DAY……..

  27. Pink Panther

    Mon Dieu, you are correct! I made a terrible deduction because I forgot all about this person.She is forgettable, nes pa? But you are exactamonte, Former FIPNA Presient. Great deduction!.Of course Hellen would never say”maybe they are knockoffs” about herself, and you are also right about KHHC, I remember the logo very distinctly,I even think we have an old photograph. Once again, good deduction! I wonder how much loyalty is going for these days? Your workers inside are so brave, that is why one came at the strike member with a knife, they are so good that is why they curse at everyone as they go by. You are all cohorts with the house of Hellen and you will go down with her.Let’s see what you will be saying then! You will all be singing like the bunch of caged, yellow canaries that you are!

  28. jman

    LETS START OUT WITH THIS IS NOT SISTER NADINE, SHE IS NOT YOUR SISTER. AFTER SPEAKING TO HER AND KNOWING SHE IS BEING ACCUSED OF DEALING WITH YOU AND YOUR COHORTS SHE WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT SHE WOULD NEVER NEVER NEVER ASSOCIATE HERSELF WITH YOUR FIPNA WEB SITE.SHE WANTS YOU ALL TO KNOW SHE GOES THRU HELL WHEN LEAVING KHRCC BY BEING INSULTED AND BEING CALLED A FAT WHITE B====HAVING A ROCK THROWN AT HER CAR , HAVING EGSS THROWN AT HER, WHY DONT YOU JUST LEAVE HER ALONE SHE DOESNT BOTHER YOU AS SHE HAS STATED TO ME AND SO JUST LEAVE HER ALONE. YOU CAN GUESS AND GUESS BUT YOU WILL NEVER KNOW WHO I AM. AND IF I WERE HELLEN AS YOU THINK I MITE BE SPELL MY NAME PROPERLY ITS HELEN. ONE L. ALSO NOTE NADINE DOES NOT WORK WEEKENDS SO SHE WILL NOT BE THERE TO WELCOME YOU WITH OPEN ARMS ON A WEEKENDS OR A WEEKDAY. JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THIS INFORMATION FROM NADINE. I ON THE OTHER HAND WILL TRY AND CONTROL MYSELF IN GOING ON TO THE FIPNA SITE. BUT IT IS KINDA INTERESTING AT TIMES TO SEE WHAT PEOPLE WRITE AND HOW PEOPLE CAN DIS EACH OTHER FOR NO REASON. WE ALL WISH IT WAS OVER BUT NOTHING LOOKS TOO PROMISING.GOOD NITE MY SISTERS AND BROTHERS

  29. Pink Panther

    Martin, why don’t you give it a rest already? nes pa? you are not fooling anyone– you are so uncreative it is incredible! especialmonte that you claim to be so bright–JMAN IS JACOB–no doubt– but you keep insisting on writing under other people’s pseudonyms–you are so addicted! and since you too spelled HELLEN with 2 ll’s I think that’s the way we should leave it, nes pa? As for SISTER NADINE ,too bad, so sad– if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen! Martin, mon ami, why don’t you go and do your usual recreational activity, surfing the web,for how you say it,big boy entertainment. Maybe you can find someone who cares!

  30. FORMER FIPNA PRESIDENT

    NADINE..I AM TRULY SHOCKED AND DEEPLY HURT….YOU USED TO BE SO FRIENDLY…..WHAT HAPPENED??????? WE ALWAYS EXCHANGED PLEASANTRIES WHEN WE SAW EACH OTHER…..HOWEVER THAT DOESN’T ANSWER MY QUESTION…..WE WILL BE THERE FOR A TOUR OF THE FACILITY THIUS WEEKEND AND AS I STATED IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE , YOU WILL THROW OPEN YOUR DOORS AND WELCOME US IN…….

  31. Karen

    I think we should call a truce on name calling, and deal with issues not people.
    . . . .
    The rules of the blog are to allow anyone to use a name and make a statement. I would ask that everyone not use slang or curse words.
    . . . .
    Let us use our energy to figure out how to solve this strike.

  32. Pink Panther

    Karen, mes ami, do you really think that will happen. they have nothing good to say, so they always resort to name calling and insults, nes pa? They would have nothing to post if they couldn’t name call, point fingers and lay the blame on the striking union members! They cannot tell us anything1 the only person who has any authority is HELLEN SIEGER. So, Hellen we anxiously await your comments.It’s about time you pull your head out of the sand, nes pa?

  33. Karen

    Mes amis Pink Panther, please turn your attention to the web rules. We will enforce them so the rest of us can enjoy the blog. Adieu!

  34. Money Man (Patrick)

    FOR FIPNA MAN:

    It’s sad to say – but you are incorrect. HELLen SIEGHeil sent no flowers. She also didn’t bother to even offer token condolences to the family. You might find this article in todays Daily News interesting:
