Missing Medical Records: Evidence points to Cardston Alberta Doctor's involvement with Ezekiel Stephan during his stay at Lethbridge Hospital
David and Collet Stephan left their 18 month old baby boy in the hands of medical professionals at a rural hospital in Cardston Alberta. Their son had suffered a sudden respiratory arrest and had been rushed to meet an ambulance before entering the care of medical staff. Ezekiel was stabilized at the hospital and was prepped for transport to the Alberta Children's Hospital. His parents were told to meet him there.
The time where almost all records are missing for about 1.5 hours, was during Ezekiel's stop over in the Lethbridge Regional Hospital. Dr. Shauna Burkholder testified that the staff were too busy assisting Ezekiel to keep records at this time.
Medical records showed that there were at least; 3 doctors, 3 nurses, 3 EMS, 1 respiratory therapist, and the night staff of a regional hospital present during this time. Almost all records from 00:25 to 01:40 on March 14 2012 are currently missing. Dr. Shauna Burkholder was on the phone directing his care during this time.
Day one of the trial was not a surprise.
Registered Nurse and friend of Ezekiel's mother, Terrie Shaw testified that she visited and checked Ezekiel's vitals.
Collet Stephan had complained that he was more tired than usual and appeared to be achy with muscle stiffness.
Terrie testified that there was nothing she could see of concern and that if Collet wanted to know more then to take Ezekiel into a doctor. They looked up viral meningitis as a possible reason for the muscle stiffness but Ezekiel did not have the symptoms to match that either.
Ken Cherinowski, paramedic testified:
Dr Lloyd Clark testified:
A concern was raised over Dr. Clarkes previous notoriety which he earned in 2018 when he made some hard remarks to a group of homeless Natives in the small Southern Town of Cardston Alberta. News of his actions made national headlines.
Dr. Clark then continued on with his testimony. When asked to identify an X-ray he had ordered and interpreted he testified:
The Xray seen to the right shows a zoom in on the trachea. You can see on the film that the trachea, lungs and heart are all offset to the childs right side.
This could create catastrophic "intubation difficulties".
You can aslo see a dark spot in his trachea about the same size as the intubation tube. In the autopsy photos a deep gouge was found directly below this spot.
The medical Examiner would later testify that Ezekiel did not have an infection in his lung. It formed only on the outside of the lung. It is believed that the intubation tube placed in the back of the ambulance in the ambulance bay punctured Ezekiels Plural Cavity and created the infection.
Dr. Clarke was asked if he knew anything about a tracheal tear. He responded that it was the first time he had heard of it.
He was then shown the contents of the social media post he had complained about. The contents were exclusively limited to discussion surrounding a tracheal puncture.
At this point he claimed he was not qualified to speak to the difference between a tracheal tear and a tracheal puncture.
Thank you !
Thank you to the individuals who have provided information thus far. Many people from AHS have come forward and have either provided information or told us to stop digging. Either way its been telling and has assisted us in determining who and what we need to focus on in the coming weeks of trial.
There is a current claim that Medical staff were too busy to document during this time.
Medical expert Shawna Burkholder testified of a severe cardiac issue while Ezekiel was in the Lethbridge Regional Hospital. She indicated this was a result of a Doctor from Cardston reducing Ezekiel's medication. The records surrounding this time are undiscoverable! We need your help!
Missing medical records have left large gaps in Ezekiel Stephan's care. Missing blood culture reports, un-finalized PCRs, missing charts and logs are all issues currently being dealt with during the Stephan trial.
Most concerning are is the fact that there is a large gap in records while a severe cardiac arrest was taking place, and evidence of a lethal overdose has been found.
You or someone you know knows something about this case. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
This Family needs your help.
Court heard this week that Logs, charts and recorded phone calls from the Cardston Alberta Hospital all showed promise of a full or near full recovery for Ezekiel Stephan.
Ezekiel Stephan was transferred from the Cardston Alberta Hospital to the Lethbridge Alberta hospital. During transport, records show that he improved continually.
Here is where it gets sketchy. Medical logs, charts and records are almost entirely missing from 00:25 to 01:40.
During this time notes from other doctors at the Alberta Children's Hospital record numerous procedures and a now uncharted Cardiac Arrest. No charts, logs or records have ever been provided for over 55 minutes of this time frame. We do not know the identities of who witnessed the events at the Lethbridge Hospital and Alberta Health Services is claiming they have turned over all of the files that are now in their possession.
Records provided from this time frame have the attending physician stating "I was not involved..." Leaving the Stephan family wondering what he wasn't involved with. The ER Doctor who lives next to Ezekiel's grandfather now claims to have no memory of the events that took place that night.
No one has been willing to talk and the Medical Doctors who were involved have all now lawyered up with the legal firm Bennett- Jones.
Ezekiel Stephan did not have Meningitis.
Newly acquired medical records show that Ezekiel did not have Meningitis. This new information paints a grim picture of events that took place in the Lethbridge Regional Hospital.
Friday May 31, 2019 saw three hearings in the Lethbridge Court of Queen's Bench involving the parents of Ezekiel Stephan.
My head is still reeling from what I witnessed. I can only describe it as confusion, misrepresentations, strategic maneuvering and a complete lack of professionalism on all accounts.
Here's the breakdown of what took place:
The stay application was interesting. It started with David Stephan presenting a note from the Office of the Medical Examiner as an exhibit. In this note the writer noted that Valerie Wallace from the Crown's office called to ask if the Medical Examiner was aware of some evidence being sought by the Defence counsel.
She then proceeded to tell the writer that she did not want the evidence sent to her or for the ME's office to acquire it. She just wanted to know where to find it.
Last Saturday began with a bang. The public release of numerous exculpatory documents pertaining to the Death of Ezekiel Stephan spread quickly across Canada. Over the course of a week thousands of dollars in donations and over 1200 positive comments were posted to social media pages related to the Stephans.
Within the first 4 days of the Campaign some 43,000 views on a single post were charted.
"We released consult notes that showed that Doctors at ACH were aware that there was no meningitis at the time the RCMP were interviewing Eziekiel's mother. I think there were two people out of almost 60,000 views who said negative things."
On day 5 our views skyrocketed by about 22,000 views. Naturally we wondered what was driving the views over such a short amount of time.
That's when we found this.
Rather than report on the documents being released, Global News fabricated a story about Sly Anti-Vaxxers,
They listed the Stephans in the article as an example of Sly Anti-Vaxxers. Attempted to relate the Stephan's posts to vaccinations, tried to shut down the Stephan's post for donations, and then noted that the Stephan's post had nothing to do with Vaccinations.
David Stephan's brother Bradford Stephan was taking his turn monitoring the page "They sent thousands of people to our page. We now have about 15 negative comments on the one post and 3 people who are actively saying mean things," said Stephan
The vast majority of posts, comments and messages are entirely positive toward the Stephans or are showing genuine disgust in the Alberta Governments lack of ethics.
"... you can’t sue a judge because they’re immune from suit for things that they do in the course of their duties."
~Associate Chief Justice J.D. Rooke Jan 18th 2019
Calgary Court Center
May 28th 2019 Justice J.D. Rooke refused to allow a recusal application against himself to even be filed in the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench. This, just one week before the beginning of the Stephan trial, where he will remain as the CMJ and be able to continue to suppress evidence of state wrongdoing.
With less than 1 week until the Stephan trial. New information is being released by family members of the Stephans. ACJ J.D. Rooke is shown in communications to have denied Subpoenas for ten key material witnesses.
Justice Rooke ruled on the 25th of February to dismiss all of the Stephans existing subpoenas. In a landmark ruling he determined that because the Stephans are self-represented, they are required to file an affidavit with the Court to provide justification / evidence to why every witness should be allowed.
Septic infection be Damned! Lets approve organ donation and put these infected organs into other kids!
Most of us probably cringed when we read the line above. Let's think it through. Could you trust a hospital that would so recklessly put your child's life at risk by sewing into them an organ that was infected with meningitis causing bacteria? Would Doctors be foolish enough to transplant an organ into another child if there was even a chance of the organ passing along an infection of this severity?
Doctors approved the donation of Ezekiel Stephan's organs on March 16, 2012 @ 11:00 AM
For 6 long years the Stephans have fought for an accurate copy of their son's medical records. For six long years they have been almost entirely disappointed. To date there has been a wrongful conviction, an appeal and a Supreme Court reversal of the conviction, costing the Stephans over $1,000,000.00, the tax payers even more. They have had their names destroyed by the main stream media and are now homeless with their 4 children and have spent the last year moving from one place to another. They have been made to rely on the kindness of other Canadians who are willing to take them in.
April of 2019 was a land mark hearing that showed that at least 176 medical records had either been removed from the Alberta Netcare system along with two recorded RAAPID calls from an Ontario Server set and virtually all charts from their sons stay at the Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge Alberta. All of the now undiscoverable records dealt with procedures and their residual effects from a 36 hour period of in hospital care.
"When Alberta Health Services indicated to the Court that they had provided all the records that now exist, we were devastated". Their own records reference these other records that we are being told are no longer in the possession of AHS. Where did they go and why were they removed? The Crown is planning to force us to argue over pictures of our son's dissected body without legal assistance. They are going to force us to look at pictures of our deceased son without having the medical records to defend ourselves. The Court knows that the records existed and what we are getting from Justice Rooke is "It's not my problem" "
~ David Stephan
Doctor Sandy Cunningham from the Cardston Alberta Hospital successfully treated Ezekiel for the high potassium found in the lab results. Ezekiel's blood pressure quickly normalized and he began to breath on his own within 30 minutes of being treated with Calcium Chloride.
It was after after Ezekiel began breathing on his own that things took a turn for the worse. Doctors testified that there was worry over Ezekiel possibly pulling out his breathing and NG tubes. A drug called Roccuronium Bromide was administered and he fell into a deep and prolonged Cardiac Arrest that would result in severe brain damage and ultimately brain death. (Roccuronium is known to cause cardiac arrhythmias and if contraindicated for patients with electrolyte imbalances)
During transport to the Lethbridge Regional Hospital doctors received a report that Ezekiel had a potassium level of 6.4. This number is concerning because medical staff had already watered down his blood supply with over 500 Ml of Saline before blood was drawn for the test. a level of 4 is normal, 6.4 is alarming. The estimated level of 10 on arrival, if not treated would have been fatal. It would have stopped his Heart, lungs and caused paralysis.
My fellow Canadians, we need your assistance. The Stephan's have four children who they love and who love them. After 6 years of dealing with Alberta's broken Judicial system they are in no way naive enough to believe that the Alberta Courts will allow a fair trial or even one that will allow the truth to make it on the record.
We need people to attend this trial, to talk about whats going on in Alberta with their friends and Neighbors and to call your local politicians and demand change. If Judges like J.D. Rooke and Crown Prosecutors like Britta Kristensen are allowed to continue to push agendas and weaponize our courts against parents and their families, we will all lose. If this case is successful, it will lead to forced medical fads being forced on our children. As parents it is our right to act in our children's best interests.
Please assist us by providing funding for medical experts to help us bring the truth to light and keep the Stephan Family together.
This Video shows what happens when medical fads are pushed on our children with little or no science to support them. I hope you enjoy watching one of David Stephan's first video compilations on the topic.
