2010 coroner's investigation raised questions over Thunder Bay hospital's discharge practices


November 19, 2019

A coroner's investigation raised questions about the Thunder Bay hospital's discharge practices for vulnerable patients almost 10 years before a 19-year-old First Nations man was found dead hours after he was discharged, CBC News has learned.

According to an Ontario coroner's report into a 2009 Thunder Bay death, Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre managers met with the coroner and a family member of the deceased in 2010 and said the hospital would come up with a communication strategy to deal with at-risk discharged patients "to ensure a safe return home."
