A man died at the Poseidon Care Centre on August 23rd and his death may have been avoidable.
That’s the story I heard today from a friend of the late Ingel Keller.
Linda Choquette told me the story of how this dementia patient and her close, personal friend died.
A few days after we aired the interview, I received a response from Marion Pringle, regional director for Manitoba at Revera Long Term Care, the organization that oversees Poseidon Care Centre.
We are saddened by the loss of Mr. Keller, and would like to extend our condolences to his friends and loved ones.The incident in question was immediately reported to and investigated by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA). They determined that this case did not meet the criteria for a critical incident. We also conducted our own internal investigation, and concur with the WRHA’s assessment. As part of our investigation, we interviewed individuals present at the time of the incident, and found that his care plan was appropriately followed.In order to respect Mr. Keller’s privacy, we cannot provide any further details concerning his personal health information.Poseidon Care Centre was found to have met all standards for care homes as set out by Manitoba Health, during their audit this spring. The staff at Poseidon Care Centre are committed to providing the best care possible for the residents they serve.
