Inquest finds death of Headingley inmate unpreventable
An inquest report into the death of an inmate at Headingley Correctional Centre says nothing could have been done to prevent his death.
Donald Moose, 32, died Oct. 2, 2009. He was a diabetic and was given oral glucose.
He was later taken to Grace Hospital where he died.

The inquest report, released Wednesday, notes that other inmates were concerned about Moose and told corrections officers that his condition was deteriorating in the days leading up to his death.
Corrections officers testified they didn't notice that.
The inquest report also says there should be better reporting of inmates medical records, extended nursing hours at the jail and a formalized system for inmate complaints.
