Multiple Discrepancies Identified in Pathologist's Work

As per recent reports, it has been claimed that health authorities have recently released results of a habitual audit during the year that went by, which ended up finding more than dozens of inconsistencies on account of pathology tests conducted in Winnipeg.

In addition, it has been revealed that two international labs were used by two senior pathologists for the purpose of reviewing in excess of 3,000 cases of work of a single doctor.

They ended up finding that discrepancies in as many as 137 of those incidents, while five of them were classified as dangerous incidents.

In this regard, the CEO of Diagnostic Services of Manitoba, Jim Slater, said: “There were three cases that were diagnosed as cancer and on review had to be upgraded as to the severity of cancer which meant they had to have a change in their treatment”.

Two other individuals were originally informed that their cases were benevolent and were later informed that they were suffering from a preliminary stage of cancer.

Along the same lines, Diagnostic Services of Manitoba’s chief medical officer, Dr. Amin Kabani, said that he does not consider the fact that any of the patients they had conversations with were subjected to any sort of risk.

The main reason for the thing is that the review was carried out extremely quickly. The second main reason behind the entire issue is that it was decided by the authorities to inform the physicians as well as the patients as soon we they spot any kind of potential error.

However, on the other hand, PC party health critic, Myrna Driedger, added that those amendments were never going to be enough.
