Patient sues for shabby hospital treatment

A man whose week-long stay at Notre-Dame Hospital in 2013 was an epic of low-grade lousy existence on a gurney has sued the CHUM and won in small claims court, a first in Quebec. But his experience also tends to confirm that the CHUM did need a new hospital building, as Notre-Dame is no longer a hospital no longer a university hospital (see below).

Update: CBC has a new story this week about intolerable conditions at the hospital because of the heat wave, both for workers and patients.
