Never received treatment for aneurysm

Posted By: Jason Mayoff · 1/4/2013 6:11:00 AM

A man is angry that his wife never received any treatment for a brain anuerysm in the three months between her diagnosis and her death.

70 year old Francoise Gervais died in November and her husband Gérard Olivier told the Journal de Montreal that her death could have been prevented.

At the time, the neurologist told Olivier that considering the size of his wife's aneurysm, it's inconceivable that no one did anything about it.

Gervais was originally diagnosed on August 15th.

She had an appointment with a neurologist on October 30th, but it was cancelled.

She died five days later.

Olivier has filed complaints with the Fleury and Notre-Dame hospitals and the Quebec College of Physicians.

      @Shiba What do you mean 'is going to hell' ? We are already there and are sitting in first class. There are more imortant things for the media ( CJAD, The Gazette - the cozy twosome of a poor excuse of this city's media) to focus and consistantly follow up on - American Idol, Kardashian updates , which Hollyweird actress is dating or got boob enhancement, or what pearl of wisdom a hockey player will drop after a game with 43 reporters all at the same game. These are things we want to know they claim. What a mess .

    I could say unbelievable! I feel so sorry for Mr. Gerald Olivier who lost his wife to the hospital system that he as a Canadian citizen paid in all his life for good health care... All the immigrants that come in and are given better healthcare because they have time to sit and do nothing all day. Paid by our government which is us for their votes.. Give them everything like pensions etc and encourage them to vote in the next elections..

      @mp Wow, I'm not an immigrant and I found that offensive. Please don't spread discrimination. Base it on facts.
