I worked for CNA

Many years ago, I also worked for #CNA. Today, I am an Injured Worker, ‘Protected’ by a CNA Worker’s Compensation policy, since January 9, 2012.  



Perhaps this and other like groups will find value and lessons to be learned in this blog…  https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts.

This is Brain Injury Awareness month! Think think think.

Thomas Motamed has quite the organization, doesn’t he? Please extend hellos and wishes for a very interesting life to him and his ilk.

Thanks so much.



PS. GotTBI2? #WarOnWorkers got you down? Interrupt the war on workers. WOW! 

Be creative.

If you can’t work, then blog! It doesn’t have to be perfect… We are in the trenches… We’re surrounded by psychopaths… The good news is… We know where they are.

  • WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW 

A Cynical Look at #WorkComp War?

A cynical look at the #WorkComp War by a Survivor? Close.

It is an attempt to evoke critical thinking about the #GrandWorkCompFraud scam maiming and killing injured workers, which also ravages public and corporate funds in a business model of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.

It is also an attempt to dispel the Pollyanna-ish dangerous belief that  #WorkComp, a mega billion dollar industry, is simply “broken.”

When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained

 

#WorkComp is everybody’s business.

It is also an attempt to offer hope to injured workers, and to show by example that learned helplessness is lethal and can be overcome, even when most of America knows about the horrors and atrocities and chooses to look the other way.

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.

Where do we go from here WorkComp, Wyndham, CNA, Grancell, Corvel and My Fellow Americans

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW: OPEN RESPONSE, TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

  MIC CHECK RED PODIUM

[If YOU have ideas on how to resolve this, and matters like it, without a WorkComp death penalty for getting injured on the job, please advise!]

Dear Tina:

Thank you for your kind letter.

“I will share your request with the Leave Support Center and ask them to review your request and provide you a written response with the outcome.”

Please do also send the information on how to redeem the $54.73 “Three year Service Award”….  It will help with the costs of food and lodging while attending the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program.  I will ask my accountant to revise my 2014 return.

How nice.  That’s the first I am hearing of a monetary award for years of service!  Did I miss one for 2013? I got a card from Tommy with a Pin for the first year back.  I still have it.  Timeshare did change my life…for the best when I bought my first one, then for the better when I became a salesperson, then….. for my near total destruction upon being injured at work.

Please consider THIS  letter a further addendum to request for continued leave of absence, through December 1, 2015, such leave being part of the accommodation request.  If I can get back sooner, I will.  Dr. Hilda will reevaluate periodically, as will staff at Coastline.  

Please see the attached letter from Matrix Absence Management, a member of the Tokio Marine Group, as administrators for Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company, and the Long Term Disability Provider of the self-purchased Wyndham LTD policy.  I can tell you that Matrix/Reliance has been consistently kind, professional, and helpful, even through the financial chicanery of CNA that complicated payment of the LTD policy, more than once.  The experience between the two insurance companies is as different as night and day, good and evil, honorable and unlawful, kind and vicious…..

 

Attached is the IME, Independent Medical Exam by one of the Reliance ‘independent’ neurologists. Stewart Reubens, of Grancell, also requested a copy of this report and it is therefore being sent to all stakeholders. I am under no legal obligation to share this information; it is relevant to the possibly criminal matters at hand, that absolutely require Wyndham Intervention at the highest levels now. Let’s avoid a #FEHA lawsuit, although it seems Grancell has other aims. I have not been authorized to return to work because medically necessary treatments have not been authorized for over three years.

POLITICAL LANGUAGE

 

Ain’t that a crime?!!  If it wasn’t WorkComp, it would likely be attempted murder!   ” First- degree murder  is any intentional  murder  that is willful and premeditated with malice aforethought.”  Complicity in such acts likely has serious consequences as well.

Please note the Reliance letter clearly states:

“Based on the medical information contained in your file, you are considered totally disabled from performing any occupation for which you are qualified, by reason of training, education, or experience.  As a result, benefits will continue to April 8, 2017, or until you no longer meet the provision of your policy, whichever occurs first.”

How is it, do you think, that both of Wyndham’s insurance companies can have such diverse opinions on my ability to return to work?  Grancell has done everything possible to ensure I am not able to return to work, while they churn the files.  Yesterday, I received another big set of papers from CorVel corporation, pure chicanery and deceptions, but it is their standard of practice.  I have about 3 reams of their bogus expensive reports.

Please see the attached links on how one Mayor has requested a complete audit of CorVel.

Confusion Reigns Supreme – CorVel Hospital Experience is a Lesson for All of Workers’ Comp

Forth Worth Mayor and CorVel

If the Mayor can call for an Audit of CorVel’s WorkComp practices, Wyndham Worldwide can certainly call for an audit of at least my case, and ideally, an audit of all claims over the past 5 years that resulted in absences of longer than 90 days, or forced resignations as a requirement to facilitate medically necessary care. Certainly such an audit will identify a pattern of practice clearly showing the Wyndham is paying premium for insurance coverage that does not provide medical care to injured workers, and in fact, failures to provide medical care by said provider, cause egregious harm to both injured worker and employing corporation, with callous disregard for life and corporate profits and shareholder interests.  (Good for defense law firm shareholders apparently, good for nobody else.)

 

I know how that cop’s family must feel. My dad was a firefighter. I know how that ‘Brotherhood’ can mobilize and organize to help it’s own when under attack by the likes of CorVel, and what is to come for the family, also, during recovery.  I have seen the industry attacks on Cops in LA, alleging they are off work for long periods of time, blaming the cops, not the deniers of medically necessary treatments.   Yeah, industry propaganda.   Anybody with a job anywhere in the USA could be next.

LI  Self Procured Medical Care

I have stories about those first weeks when a “Case Manager, Nurse Lorraine” terrorized me, and   my doctor’s!!!    Did she work for Corvel?  I don’t know.  I think she worked for CNA.  I do know that for more than 2 years, since 2/21013,  CorVel has been complicit in denials of medical care based on some pretty fictitious and outrageous misrepresentations of medical records, and omitted/ignored medical records, in full disregard of ACOEM, MTUS and NIH guidelines for treatment of closed head injury/concussion, tbi, traumatic brain injury and related consequences. CorVel staff make it very clear that they work for the insurance company, and that would seem to be a severe conflict of interest.

See YOUR letter below for more insights to what I have experienced at the hands of these premium sucking/injured worker harming vendors!

The consequences and validity of the course of treatment that have contributed to my leave of absence being more than 3 years, and great bodily to me because of the breach of fiduciary responsiblity by CNA and it’s defense counsel, Grancell-Corona and Grancell-Novato,  is simply stated as follows:

CNA INSURANCE has authorized this medical care since date of injury:

2012 – Chiropractic, Clinical Psychologist (less than 20 sessions each)

2013- Physical Therapy-6 sessions

2014 – Chiropractic, Acupuncture, 24 sessions of Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and

Physical Therapy  (Obtaining a Court order was required for Grancell to authorize scheduling of authorized chiro and acupuncture)…..

2015 – NO MEDICAL CARE, NO RETURN TO WORK, NO DISABILITY BENEFITS paid by CNA SINCE MAY 2014, after refusing to pay, despite Court agreement, in 2012/2013.  Funky accounting let them off the hook with a $16K profit for ‘negotiated’ reimbursement to the State of California for monies the State paid out of my account in 2012/2013.  (Small Permanent Disability advance received yesterday, that will serve to facilitate Coastline ABI program attendance. According to the law, PD estimated payments were due 14 days after last TTD payment… which was May 8, 2014.  See another problem here? Let’s work together for a solution; CNA has a fiduciary responsiblity to Wyndham, and TO ME, as an insured injured worker; that has been breached repeatedly; let’s change that for me, and for all injured workers who follow this path.)

Clearly, the above meets no thinking person’s idea of legitimate, reasonable nor appropriate medical care for a well documented traumatic brain injury.  It does not comply with WorkComp guidelines, ACOEM, MTUS, NIH or any thinking person’s notion of how to deal with brain injury. 

brain concussions football

Self procured (I PAID FOR IT MYSELF VS. QUIETLY LOSING MY LIFE) medical care has included physician requested but adjuster/attorney denied treatment:

2012- Functional Neurology with TBI Expertise, MRI Brain, chiropractic

2013 – Vision Therapy & Prism Lenses, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Speech therapy

2014 – Vision Therapy & Prism Lenses, Chiropractic, MRI – TBI Protocol, Acupuncture, Neuro-Psychology sessions

How many thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars have been spent on reports that requested medical care since 2012, that were simply ignored until February 2013, then they were denied in UR evaluations that would not pass a legitimacy test? More than $50,000 was spent at SCRIPPS in 2014, for merely 24 days out of the recommended 3-6 months.   What a waste of money was that!  Whose money was it? Furthermore, such a program is more beneficial for NEW Injuries, not 2.5 year old untreated head injuries.  Helpful, yes, but if CNA had only agreed to Coastline ABI program when it was first presented in May 2014, I could be almost back to work now for a fraction of the cost, and more compensatory skills.

19006204-occipital-lobe--female-brain-anatomy-lateral-view

CNA was required by law to be proactive in finding and securing help for me.  The only brain injury treatments received were all based on my own diligence and research, at the guidance of various reporting doctors, who’s recommendations were consistently ignored.  Romano Trust vs. Sedgwick rulings apparently gives companies like CNA the right to kill injured workers.  Is that the type of company that represents Wyndham Corporate Culture and Values?  WILL WYNDHAM STEP UP NOW?

Out of all the evaluating doctors seen, only 3 supported denial of medical care….. known industry leased/owned doctors….Zardouz, Kent and O’Brien.    Any district attorney investigation should likely start there, then move through the list of complicit CorVel doctors, and, of course, to the handling of the mis-information by Ms. Mall of Grancell, and supported by Mr. Reubens of Grancell, while the CNA adjusters seemed to be ‘just following orders’.   Most likely, WE, THE PEOPLE, NEED THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO INTERVENE IN WORK COMP CRIMES, NATIONALLY, WITH A SPECIAL COMMISSION.  In seeking Class Action potential, it seems too many attorneys are too afraid of the big corporations, or have no working knowledge of fighting for civil rights.  Others simply seem to be in cahoots with the dubious doctors, law firms, scams and other providers.

Brain  viral mashable more

As an injured Wyndham Worker, and as a Wyndham shareholder, I am hereby formally requesting that an immediate claim audit of my case be conducted…. top include th CNA handling, the Grancell obfuscation of all facts and file churning, and the CorVel deceptions.  As I see from the article, an Employer does indeed have the authority to question the handling of claims, and a responsiblity to do so when the harm caused by the employer’s vendors has been so egregious.   PLEASE WORK WITH MIKE DOUGHERTY TO GET THIS CLAIM INVESTIGATED, WHILE I GET AS MUCH COMPENSATORY STRATEGIES AS POSSIBLE WHILE AT COASTLINE ABI PROGRAM.   Here is that link as well. http://www.coastline.edu/students/students-with-disabilities/acquired-brain-injury/    

I will never be whole, but without treatment, I will forever be 100% disabled.   That’s not ok.

Thank you also for the vouchers for discounts at the Wyndham property in Newport Beach, near Coastline Community College Acquired Brain Injury Program. The staff at Ramada Inn – Newport Beach is always so kind, patient and gracious. When I first arrived there, in October 2014, I didn’t know it was a Wyndham property (I forgot how big Wyndham is!)  I told my “WorkComp Story” at check in, as I tell anybody who will listen, and the Front Desk Manager listened patiently and said, ‘Well, let’s get your experience with Wyndham back on a positive track.  Allow me to upgrade your visit.”   Kindness goes a long way.

With the tiny advance on Permanent Disability funds just received (thanks, Fred!), I hope to be able to complete the one year ABI program, which is officially concluded December 10, 2015, and I will jump through all the hoops to get there, stay there,and excel there, getting the compensatory strategies that are offered when people with brain injuries have exhausted all restorative treatments, or didn’t get any, like I didn’t.   Maybe I can organize a Student Union activity on behalf of InjuredWorkers in California, or an educational launch to reach ignorant doctors, lawyers and adjusters, and work with DA’s to deal with the rest of them.  That would be a big goal, but as a Salesperson, I know the value of goals, written goals, and Vision Boards.  More than one of my doctor’s has indicated that I’m so smart, that’s the only reason I have survived this atrocity to the degree that I have.  I want to help Wyndham get a better insurance company and a better, more-pro-active work comp program to avoid fiascos like this in the future.

NOBODY SHOULD HAVE TO EXPERIENCE THESE HORRORS.   Plus side, I’ve learned to blog, and from the comfort of my War Room, I can type like there’s no tomorrow.  That part of my brain stayed in tact…… I wrote you, Tina, a letter, that morning of the 2nd impact on 2/4/12, when I told you if I die because of failures to provide medical care, that I hoped my family would sue Wyndham to kingdom come.  Well, I didn’t die yet, no thanks to Wyndham or it’s vendor.  My quality of life has severely diminished, and my life span has been dramatically shortened, and future health risks from untreated TBI are numerous.

Let’s make a positive impact now, while I can still fight the good fight!

cognitive dissonance turbulence

The first year was the most important for care. CNA knew that. So did Grancell.  It’s in the reports they chose to ignore. Remember, they attempted to coerce me to accept $100,000 in November 2012 in lieu of a deposition, treatment, and it required that I forfeit all civil rights, including my right to return to work.  I’m stuck with permanent brain damage because of all of this, and of course, I am not happy about it all.   Remember also, that the first neuro-pscyhologist, Dr. Eileen Kang, recommended “speech therapy with cognitive remediation” and indicated after that I would return to work.  Speech therapy was never authorized till I got to Scripps – Encinitas, in the Summer of 2014.  The damage was already done.

I will plan to return to work on or before December 1, 2015, hopefully, with few other accommodations to be requested/required.   Dr. Hilda Chalgujian is following my case, and Dr James Pasino at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program is the neuro-psychologist in charge of the program, which is nationally renknowned and a model for other State program, and is supported by the Department of Rehabilitation.  I have requested and been authorized to participate early in the ‘career planning strategies’ for ABI survivors, which starts next week, in addition to the regular curriculum.  It is normally recommended that the program be 50% completed, but since I don’t know if I will be able to afford to stay through June 2015, I want to get as much good from the program as possible, and perhaps I can be one of the first virtual participants in the suMmer/fall program.  That’s just a hope of mine.  The drive is very hard on me, but I have to do it if I ever expect to have a life again.  LINK FOR MORE INFO:  http://www.coastline.edu/students/students-with-disabilities/acquired-brain-injury/

So, I await confirmation of the continued leave of absence, the Award redemption information, and confirmation that a full audit will be conducted, with perhaps a call to the Attorney General’s office in California to expedite further investigations of these horrific crimes.   While Grancell attempts to fraudulently state that I was this way before…. I have to laugh at their arrogance.   There is no such evidence, nor is there any way that Wyndham would have repeatedly hired  me in different locations, and even send me to Big Bear in January 2011 to help out during a time of severe management upheaval.  As you may recall, I was #1 Sales Rep of the Month more than once.

Perhaps CNA and Grancell current players are unaware of the timeshare world, and how it just doesn’t “MAKE SENSE” to attempt to kill an injured Timeshare Sales Person…. without expecting consequences.  More details are available at the blog site,  https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts.  God bless America, and the First Amendment., the 14th Amendments,  the Civil Rights Act and the US Constitution.

constitution  too long didnt read

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal   protection of the laws.”  

14th amendment violated by Workers Compensation Corporations?

It is my hope and prayer that Wyndham will make a difference, starting with it’s injured workers, and taking it global.  There are good people at Wyndham, and I have been blessed to know many of them.   I recoil, as if from a hot flame, at the very thought of the people at Grancel and CNA, but I’m just sensitive to evil that way.

end evil  step out of line

So, as I told Stewart Reubens and Fred Sachs, I don’t want to fuss about things while I am at Coastline.  I have also learned that 3 years in complete Survival Mode (or 2 years, since the first year I was hardly present cognitively)…. such stress is similar to what prisoners of war experience, and it is very dangerous for a brain injured person. Obviously, treatment will never happen via CNA, as many doctors have told me, in their own sheer utter discouragement and despair.  Nor is there any interest in good faith mediation.  So I hope they will just stay out of my way and let me recover and get back to work.

Thank you, Tina, also for the kinder tone of your letter.  Another peer at Coastline indicated her horror that nobody from her job of over 20 years so much as called to see if she was ok.  Another teacher, in Boston an a Nurse in North CA  is having the same sort of “work comp” troubles as I am, and it’s a self-insured school district, but with the same unclean hands and legal chicanery.. It’s epidemic.  Across the Nation.  #InjuredWorkersUniting  #SilentNoMore

Subject: Interactive process

Dear Linda,

 

On January 16, 2015, you indicated you had reactivated your Real Estate License and wanted to commence the interactive process regarding your return to work.  Please note that we have been engaged (and will continue to engage) in the interactive process, and we have attempted to work with you regarding your desire to return to work.  Our communications to you regarding your medical status and your desire to return to work constitute engagement in the interactive process.  Despite your desire to return, you still are unable to return to work€“ by your own admission.

  • January 23, 2015 – I am still TTD, temporarily totally disabled. Also, No brain experts have indicated that I am recovered sufficiently to return to work
  • January 13, 2015 I seem to pretty much permanently 100 disabled.
  • December 4, 2014 €œI am still temporarily totally disabled and now my conditions are exacerbated. I am unable to participate in the December 8 training class, much to my great disappointment and anguish.
  • November 26, 2014 €œI ’m tired and have brain fatigue and a little preservation . . . other cognitive deficits exist . . .
  • November 26, 2014  My California Real Estate Broker license expired because I was unable to cognitively perform the continuing education courses in time.
  • November 4, 2014 Because of my cognitive impairments, I am much slower to figure things out .

 

When you expressed your desire to return to work, we requested a medical release, but you have not provided one.  We need that release and its accompanying description of your limitations so that we can work with you to see if there is a position for which you are qualified, the essential functions of which you could perform with or without accommodation.  We cannot place you back in the workplace without that information and subsequent discussions with you.

 

In an email you sent on February 1, 2015, you stated €œI . . . .am hereby requesting extension of leave of absence to complete one year at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach, which, ideally, will be completed on or before December 1, 2015, at which time I hope to be able to return to work.”

 

Regarding your request of an extended leave of absence until December 1, 2015, from your email on February 1st, I will share your request with the Leave Support Center and ask them to review your request and provide you a written response with the outcome.   Additionally, per your request, I signed discount vouchers for Wyndham hotels and provided them to you so you could secure accommodations at your expense.  Let me know if you need more in the future and I would be happy to assist.

 

Finally, you inquired about reported compensation in the amount of $54.73 for 2014.  We researched and found that the amount is associated with your three year service award with WVO.  To address this outstanding issue, you may either redeem the award (we will provide you the information to redeem online) or you may elect to forgo the award and we can reissue a W-2 to you for 2014.  Please note that reissuing the W-2 may take approximately 45 days to complete.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions and advise how you would like to proceed on the service award issue.

 

Thanks so much,

 —-Wyndham Human Resources

Here is a letter to ‘Fred, The Adjuster & Other Stakeholderss’

Dear Fred:

May I suggest that the Grancell partners, with your lead, Fred, review this case and consider sending the neuro and psych evaluations to a third party for evaluation of fraud, and failures to provide medically necessary treatment as repeatedly requested since 1/9/12.  Copies should likely be sent to the District Attorney, and we can leave that to Shane Riedman?  Bruce Leckart’s office might be a good place to start.  He is a LinkedIn connection for me and Norin (and I spoke to his office last year, and have been invited to call again with all this new life-threatening krap.)

Attached is the progress report of 1/19/15 with requests for authorization from Dr. Hilda Chalgujian.  [not on blog copy; available upon request; no secrets]

Obviously, by yesterday’s US postal service mail, I see the bad faith actions promoted by Grancell continue, and have apparently contributed to your failure to keep your word and send PD advance money, or to advise me of any delay.  Mean.  I hate mean.  Being mean to disabled people is just …. inhumane.

PS, by copy to Wyndham Leave Support, the accommodations I am now requesting since we never engaged in interactive process, necessary  since October 2012,  am hereby requesting extension of leave of absence to complete one year at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach, which, ideally, will be completed on or before December 1, 2015, at which time I hope to be able to return to work.

linda-ayres-says-join-me-on-twitter and linked in lindaayres311

At your demand, I spent the $450 to reinstate my lost California Real Estate Broker’s license, and I willl work on getting a new California Notary license in the interim.  I have no hope to regain my lost Hawaii real estate license, due to failures of the Wyndham WorkComp program, which is an epic fail, causing permanent brain damage to me.  Remember remember…. Dr. Kang, the first neurosychologist I was evaluated by, recommended immediate speech therapy with cognitive remediation, and suggested return to work would happen shortly after that.  WHY DIDN’T CNA PROVIDE IMMEDIATE CARE THAT COULD HAVE SAVED MY BRAIN FUNCTIONS. WHY DID WYNDHAM HR AND RISK MANAGEMENT FAIL TO INTERVENE WITH THE WRONG DOINGS OF THEIR VENDORS???   HEINOUS CRIMES OF THE “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES” CROWDS.   The law of karma will prevail.

As we discussed, I am willing to consider mediation after this current Coastline session, and before the Summer session, if Grancell has any interest in settlement. Apparently, they do not.   Apparently Kim Mall is back in the picture, with her pretenses and file churning.  Yech!

Life with TBI is so

I told the Judge I wouldn’t be back to his Court (after my ADA rights were violated again there!)  till I found an agency to deal with the allegations of fraud, and my files are building.  I haven’t found such an agency yet, and some Super Lawyers have told me it doesn’t matter if have video of fraud being committed to deny medical care; can’t make it stick. WorkComp fraud is too big of a racket.  Yeah, maybe.  One person and God constitutes an Army, so might be a standoff.  Remember David and that Giant!

I was shocked that the Petition received yesterday from Grancell for yet another neuro psych eval was not delivered to me electronically, in compliance with ADA repeated requests, and was delivered by hand to the WCAB Court, to take unfair advantage, as is the pattern of practice.  Remember, CNA couldn’t find a neuro-psych in 3 years, what’s changed?   I had to find all the brain doctor help I got.  I had to pay for most of it.

The bulk of evaluations and recommendations were just profits for the evaluating doctors, and billable lawyer time.  How many times and ways does Grancell think it takes to verify a brain injury.  Daniel Elliott was told on the phone in January 2012, while I was in session with Dr. Daniel DeGoede, of the possible severe extent of injuries and the urgencies for immediate care.  How did Daniel respond?  By the PlayBook?  ‘Upon verified diagnosis of brain injury, terminate benefits and do all things possible to maim, torture and hopefully kill injured worker, with or without delays.’  ???

wc workers-comp-fraud  if your company lies

CHECK THE EVALUATIONS, RECOMMENDATIONS OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS, AND COMPARE TO ACTUAL TREATMENT, COUNTING OR NOT COUNTING WHAT I HAVE SELF-PROCURED.  ACOEM, MTUS, NIH GUIDELINES WERE NOT FOLLOWED, AND IF THIS WASN’T AMERICA, SOME PEOPLE MIGHT BE ARRESTED FOR HAS BEEN DONE TO ME, AND TO OTHERS LIKE ME.

That would include reports of neurologists ( (noting that your first alleged ‘mpn’ neurologist, Esmail Sebti, refused to see me when I appeared for appointment organized through EAP clinical psychologist, Dr. Daniel DeGoede, found through the CIGNA EAP program, as there never has been “proper notice” of the MPN process and network, as Ms. Mall repeatedly mis-states in her threats to various doctors. Dr. Sebti’s office perjured when they indicated I did not appear.)

By not allowing me to complete that program, that was a waste of $50,000+ of somebody’s money.  COASTLINE is approximately $400 a SEMESTER! d’OH.

Dr. Marcel Ponton, QME and Psychologist (unsure if he is a neuro-psychologist, he was former PTP, and tests were done by associate Dr. Gunn, and 4 talk-therapy session with his associate Dr. Chung.  Terminated after threat from Ms. Mall on false allegations that she had not received his reports, and even with several proofs of service, she repeatedly omitted his records, skewing reports of AME/QME doctors, and causing substantial billable hours for file churning and Court time, well documented; check EAMS for the last one.)

Dr. Daniel DeGoede, referred by Wyndham Worldwide EAP program for extreme confusion after the injury of 1/9/12.

Dr. Eileen Kang, Neuropsychologist, referred by Dr. DeGoede and authorized by Daniel Elliott.

As I indicated, I have found my voice in social media, and if Grancell chooses to represent Wyndham and CNA in such a manner that I continue blogging to expose the horrors I have endured, and continue to endure at the hands of all parties of this WorkComp fiasco, so be it.  We can do this for years.  It may have to be chalked up to “vocational rehab” that has also been denied.

I have also applied for a MENSA scholarship to help with the ABI Program expenses, and other financial aid.

By the way, radiation levels are up all over the Coast…. shhhhhhhhh……. ‘forgotten meters measure no radiation’….ask a physicist! Let me know if you want more facts on that.  Friends don’t let Friends Stay Ignorant; #ELE Alerts still in progress

San DIEgo moves decisively into the 500 Rad cateGory with a 506 cpm reading….not a good sign.

encourage others

So, it’s a challenge whether or not I really want to fight so hard to get back to Coastline vs. sheltering in place, and limiting rad exposure, for what that’s worth these days.   Wyndham won’t let me return to work because I didn’t get the medically necessary treatment, and CNA won’t authorize medically necessary treatment, so it’s back to that ‘circle jerk’ thing.  CNA stopped paying TTD 5/8/14, and did not pay the 104 weeks, but through funny accounting, got away with it, and apparently, it was ‘legal’ even though morally reprehensible.

Please note from Dr. Hilda Chalgujian’s report:

Dr Hilda Chalgujian exerpt from 1 19 2015 progress report

Attached also is a response to me from the US Department of Labor — Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs dated 12/31/14.  (posted earlier on Twitter)

Please note that the LTD provider’s IME evaluations of 11/8/14 and 1/2/15 resulted in ‘medical certification through December 1, 2015.’    I’m going to Coastline to get as much care and information as can so that eventually I can reconstruct some sort of life, which includes but is not limited to ensuring that crooked doctors and lawyers are slowed down from killing people like me, and My Fellow Americans.

As you know, I will be at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program starting tomorrow, through May 31, 2015, assuming funds clear.  I have also initiated a fund raising campaign to help sustain me since Wyndham and CNA have failed me miserably, and have caused permanent brain damage in the process.  The neuro-psychological battery of tests report from Coastline in October 2014 will be available soon.  This is a State Funded program, and their funding relies, in part, on showing measurable improvements of the small, select group of brain injured people.  I am fortunate to have found them, and although Daniel Elliott, CNA former adjuster, refused to even investigate it let alone authorize it in May of 2014, violating the legal requirements again to have been proactive in facilitating medical care.

It seems to me that the defense firm is continuing churning of files, with apparent hope to provoke me to file the FEHA claim due to the continued refusals of Wyndham, apparently at the direction of Grancell-Novato, to refuse to engage in interactive process for return to work.  Professional intervention for the interactive process was paid for in the brief treatment in the summer of 2014 at the Scripps Brain Injury Day Treatment program.  Why Wyndham refused to engage is a mystery to SCRIPPS and to all my acquaintances in the “industry” as it subjects Wyndham to a lawsuit that could create legal fees in excess of $700,000, I am told.  I suppose there is hope by Grancell that they will be retained to defend such a claim?  Is that double-dipping?

As you know, I am expecting from you an advance on permanent disability funds so that I can resume treatment at the State Funded program for cognitive rehabilitation at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program.  I had hoped to receive the funds prior to departure for Newport Beach.  I did not receive anything further from you.

I am grateful that Wyndham Worldwide has authorized travel vouchers to reduce the costs for my stay while attending the Mon-Thu, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm program.  The hotel is nearby, and because I stayed there, again, at my own cost because of the continued failures by CNA to provide medically necessary treatments, I can’t just lay down and die, as the carrier and defense may wish me to do.

Here is an excerpt from Dr. Bergey’s final report, and they cancelled my scheduled appointment for January 9, 2015 because of the MMI-Orthopedic determination, and, as was known when Dr. Bergey was designated at PTP by Kimberly Mall of Grancell and Valerie James of WCAB – Info and Officer during a hearing in which I was not allowed to be seen or heard by a Judge until they had sufficiently emotionally battered me to agree to another Orthopedic Surgeon to “coordinate treatment”.

excerpt Dr Darren Bergey Report 12 19 2014

I’m get tired of trying to convey the vile situation I have been exposed to, like right now tire.  They call it COGNITIVE FATIGUE.  I gotta finish and send this, without edits.

I have to pack to get to Coastline, and I don’t want to fuss with Kim Mall or Stewart Reubens.  I consider them both to be pure enemies of humanity, and pathetically polite in their attempts to appear human. I nearly spit when I saw her “respectful’ and snakey appeal to the Judge.

I will be happy to consider mediation in June.  I will not be happy if you continue to f—k with this final attempt to get some help at Coastline so I can resume life, in some manner.

So, if you’re sending me the money you promised, please do so, and if you can wire it, all the better.  I will have limited email access and no snail mail access.

I will be forwarding the medical bills that arrived in December for your payment, as that slip and fall was also clearly a consequence of cognitive impairements.

I’m sorry I feel like you tricked me again.  It’s so ugly, but when I saw Kim’s signature, I know what to prepare for.

I don’t want to fool with any of you while I’m at Coastline.  I will if I must, be assured of that.

Sincerely,

Linda Ayres, In Pro Per

MEMORY CRISIS? What’s the Excuse at #WorkComp for LOEF?

“At best, all I can say is that I think there’s a huge impending issue that we’re not ready to address.”

Well, all I can say is, “People Get Ready, there’s a train a comin….” ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS NOW???

wpid-wp-1416110643811.jpeg

Here’s the deal on #WorkComp and “Memory” and “Dementia” and “Brain Injury” ETC. It’s sheer corruption! It’s too brutal to be simply stupidity. IE:

Diagnosis: 854 Closed head injury, 784 Headaches, 310.2 Post concussive syndrome, 850.1 Concussion with brief loss of consciousness, 850.9 Head Concussion, 309.81 PTSD, 310.2 Post concussive syndrome, 780.93 Closed Head Injury with amnesia, 921.00 Contusion (left orbit), 750.90 Concussion, 959.01 Head Trauma, 959.01 Cognitive Changes following head trauma, 850.0 Concussion, 959.00 Head Trauma (Contusion x 2) with Impaired Memory, Speech, Balance and Vision, 850-854, 959.01 Somatic/cognitive dysfunction and emotional dysfunction, 310, 310.8, 438 Mild cognitive dysfunction, memory processing,, 850 Mild TBI positive lapse of consciousness, 310.20 Post Concussive syndrome, 309.28 Mood Disorder secondary to Post Concussive Syndrome, 959.01 Head injury, Lobe Disorders: frontal, parietal, cerebellar dysfunction, motor dysfunction, segmental dysfunctions, Closed Head Injury with Ongoing Sequelae, Psychological sequelae, possibly secondary to industrial injury, 959.01 Closed head injury with cognitive dysfunction and speech dysfunction, 784.00 post traumatic headaches, brain based vision impairments, brain-based vestibular and balance disorders + secondary to head trauma, NECK, BACK, Shoulder PAIN and related ICD-9 codes (first 2 years)

BRAIN WORK

If there really is an unwritten rule, as attested to in the InjuredWorker communities, that Carriers immediately terminate all benefits and launch guerrilla type financial terrorism upon diagnosis of brain injury, that can easily lead to ‘legal opinions’ by defense counsel that because WorkComp systems appear too complex for an injured worker, Court Appointed Conservatorship may be in order (to complete the kill?)

Immediate medical care is required for traumatic brain injury, closed head injury, concussion. MTUS recommends interdisciplinary teamwork, as does ACOEM and NIH. Ask any 7th grade kid about the brain and neuro-science!

Not #WorkComp!

Their doctors get the big bucks to recommend things like over the counter analgesics, not more than 17 chiropractic sessions first year, not more than 6 physical therapy second year, then, with Court order, a little acupuncture, rest and wait and wait and wait.

Wanna talk about increased risk exposure for dementia and premature death and epilepsy and the deal football players are getting diagnosed with?

WC DOCTORS

Throw in WorkComp doctors who are paid to change dates of injury to use earlier diagnostic reports to substantiate ‘pre-existing’ conditions (i.e. move date of injury to 2013, use 2012 records to substantiate head injury by multiple doctors)….. and…have doctors to say things like “if there was a concussion, of course medical treatment would be necessary, but there was no concussion, no brain injury, and it was probably epilepsy” would be funny if it was not so darned criminally insane, huh? Or at least ‘fraudulently felonious”.

wc CLAIM DENIED

When teams of doctors with QME/AME designations consort in such a manner at the promptings/leadings of defense counsel, there’s a breakdown, huh?
