A Terrebonne man says he and his wife will file a complaint with the Jewish General Hospital and may even sue, they claim she almost lost her life because of a medical error.
Serge Courval says he brought his diabetic wife to the emergency room because of back pain.
He says when doctors found an infection in her spine and lungs, a drain needed to be put in her lungs to get rid of fluid.
But Courval claims when the doctors put it in, they ruptured her spleen.
He says they only noticed the error the following morning but by then she was in critical condition.
"They told me to call my loved ones, that she might not make it. It’s unacceptable, she could of died alone in her room overnight and nobody would have noticed,"
“If he would have noticed the error during the procedure and would have sounded the alarm, that we could have forgiven.”
His wife Jaylee-Ann Judge is in intensive care but pulling through.
The Jewish General Hospital says Quebec law prevents them from making statements that could threaten the confidentiality of patients.
They say they take concerns about patients safety very seriously.
