The ornge air ambulance services are in tight scrutiny for several deaths of patients that occurred recently and in one or other way, involved the ornge air ambulances and their services.
The review is ongoing and Ontario's chief coroner is investigating all the patient deaths that involved the Ornge air ambulance service. The cases under investigation also include the case of the six years old Jamie Ingham, the Windsor girl, who lost her life due to meningitis in June 2011.
Ingham died because there occurred some mix-up involving Ornge, which further delayed her transfer to a Detroit hospital across the border for further procedures when Windsor Regional Hospital staff decided to send her there. But unfortunately her illness did not allow her to survive the delay and she died.
Regarding the situation, Dr. Andrew McCallum released a statement on Wednesday in which he cleared that his office has arranged to bring a panel of experts together to look and investigate all the cases (more than 17) that occurred in the past six years to clarify the role of the transport in the patients' deaths.
Final reports are expected to be submitted by the expert panel to the chief coroner by late autumn and then the results will be made publicly available too.
