Dying for a Home
In this excerpt from her recently released book, street nurse Cathy Crowe cuts through the myths surrounding homelessness to arrive at action.
Dying for a Home: Homeless Activists Speak Out, by Cathy Crowe (Between the Lines, 2007)
A quarter of a million people. Ten thousand are children. There is no more room. Some people will do anything to avoid entering. Tens of thousands stay with family or friends. Another two thousand sleep rough — in cars, on grates, in parks, by riverbeds, under bridges, in the woods. Some are squatting in empty buildings and old factories, or building shantytowns and tent cities. They sometimes remain there for years, even during the cold, harsh Canadian winter.
Back in the camp, conditions are substandard. Common areas are filled with mats to accommodate extra people in the winter months. In some sections there are only two toilets for more than a hundred people. Staffing is inadequate and violence is rampant. Entire sections are staffed only by volunteers. Recently, one of them discovered a man dead in his sleeping bag in the morning.
Diseases and outbreaks consistent with overcrowding are the norm. The tuberculosis infection rate is four times higher than in the population not hit by the disaster. Other infections — diarrhea, colds, and flus — are rampant. During a recent outbreak of Norwalk virus, a police lockdown in part of the camp was necessary to confine healthy people who panicked and wanted out. Meanwhile, medics provided intravenous rehydration to the sick on site rather than transporting them to hospital. Bedbugs, scabies, and lice are a growing public health concern. There is even a shower room set up specifically for delousing. But for the regular shower room there’s a waiting list.
Some women are pregnant. Most of the children are very young. The long-term impact on them will be profound. There are people with cancer, with multiple sclerosis, with Parkinson’s, and diabetes. The death rate is also four times higher in the camp than outside, and each week people die.
Occasionally someone is taken to hospital and dies there. People have been stuck in the camp for so long now that palliative care units have been set up.
Outside the camp, a government sign in a bus shelter reads: “There is help available for the homeless. A warm bed, a kind voice, a helping hand.” The sign is defaced by graffiti: “Kill the homeless!” Anger and hate towards the homeless has been growing. A refugee left the camp recently and was brutally murdered — beaten in his sleeping bag in a park.
By now you’ve probably figured out that I am referring to the desperate situation of displaced persons — commonly known as “the homeless” — here in Canada. This refugee camp scenario describes the raw reality of homelessness in Canada. The information was taken from official reports on ten of Canada’s largest cities, and from my first-hand experience and work as a street nurse in Canada.
I used to call this our dirty little secret, but it’s not so secret anymore, is it? This is the Canadian experience that tourist books don’t mention, but tourists still see. I ask myself, how did we let this happen? How did I end up working in refugee camp conditions in a rich country like Canada?
Over the years I’ve been many types of nurse: a cardiac nurse, a public health nurse, a camp nurse, a nurse practitioner. One of my hobbies is a collection of Harlequin-style nurse books with titles of jobs I’ve never had, like Cruise Ship Nurse, Settlement Nurse, Nurse with Wings, District Nurse, Mountaineer Nurse.
But, for the last seventeen years I have called myself a street nurse. It’s a term coined by a homeless man who one day hollered across the street corner at Sherbourne and Dundas in downtown Toronto: “Hey, street nurse!” It was a huge compliment — the same as a homeless man calling his close friend on the street his street brother, or sister.
I continue to use the term street nurse because it’s so descriptive. It doesn’t confuse the public like so many of our other nursing job titles. Street nurse — it tells a story of how things today are different than they used to be. It explains in two simple words that this country has a new nursing specialty — homelessness, and this, I suggest to you, is obscene. I’m not a politician, an economist or an urban planner. I’m a nurse, a street nurse, and what I see “downstream” in society necessitates that I look “upstream” to find the root of the problem. The necessity for street nurses necessitates that our nursing be about politics.
The conditions I see in my work now are not only unjust, they are cause for national shame: an old woman living and dying in a car, a senior sheltering below a bridge, another dying from tuberculosis, a young girl burned to death in her squat. A constant litany of infections and illness: frostbite injuries, malnutrition, dehydration, pneumonias, chronic diarrhea, hepatitis, HIV infection, skin infections from be
