There are no kind words for the injustice that Chemung County New York has visited upon Gary Harvey and his wife Sara.
Gary Harvey a veteran who served his country and fought for our freedom is being denied his. Until January 2006, Gary was leading a normal life.
Although Gary Harvey is still a living person, he has not been treated as such since 2006 when he fell down a flight of stairs and sustained traumatic brain injury. Sometime later, his prognosis worsened into a vegetative condition, but this would only be the beginning of his nightmare.
St. Joseph Hospital billed Sara’s private insurance nine hundred and thirty two thousand ($932,000) last year, out of those submitted claims eight hundred ($800.00) were for therapy.
Sar reported the 15 episodes of sepsis in a 2 year time frame to NYSDOH. Neither St. Joseph hospital, nor Chemung County nursing facility has reported this per public health law 2819. Bed sores, and a dislocated hip that Sara recently learned about but was never informed of.
Sara has no say in the matter; the county uses HIPAA as their shield for protection.
She reports it to Gary’s court appointed attorney Kevin Moshier from MHLS and unbelievable his trail goes back to Chemung County Law Department via. Davidson & O’Mara he wrote to her “Some of your concerns might well merit your advocacy, but not necessarily mine”.
Gary Harvey has been institutionalized for more than 5 years and isolated from the love and compassion of his wife.
Gary deserves the love and companionship of his wife, the comfort of his home and friends. Not only is it inhumane to continually deny him quality care, treatment and testing but cruel to continue restricting his wife’s visits.
The crime against disabled, vulnerable and elders is growing.
Gary Harvey remains today in the hands of his abusers, the very same people who tried to end his life.
