Servicing Dryden and all of Ontario

Medical providers are widely admired across Canada. But in chronically underserved communities such as Dryden, they are held in particularly high esteem. These doctors, nurses and other practitioners not only provide life-saving care when we are personally in need, but they help to keep our communities healthy.

Unfortunately, sometimes the people trying to heal us can unintentionally harm us. Statistics suggest 138,000 Canadians, one in every 18 patients, experiences preventable “adverse events” in hospitals every year. Of these, 30,000 experienced more than one “adverse event,” and about one in eight patients involved in an “adverse event” died while in hospital.

More Than An Accident

Accidents can happen in all walks of life, and everyone – including medical professionals – is capable of making mistakes. However, when a medical practitioner breaches standards of care due to negligence and it results in a patient sustaining a serious injury or death, it’s called medical malpractice.

Negligent medical care or treatment can result in:

  • Delayed Diagnosis or Misdiagnosis – Improper diagnostic testing or failure to perform necessary tests can cause a condition to misdiagnosed causing a person harm
  • Birth Injuries – Acquired brain injuries (ABIs), spinal cord damage, Brachial palsy and shoulder dystocia, fractures and scarring due to improper technique and care during the birthing process
  • Medication Errors – Incorrect prescription or administration of medicine (including type of medicine, dose, duration or method of delivery)
  • Surgical Errors – Foreign objects left inside the body, operating on the wrong patient or wrong body part, infection from poor sanitary conditions or injury due to poor technique
