Windsor Regional Hospital is holding a meeting Tuesday morning for cancer patients and their families who may have been affected by the chemo drug mistakes.
The Ontario government announced in April that chemotherapy drugs administered at four hospitals in the province, including Windsor, were improperly administered and patients received less drug than they were prescribed.
This will be the first meeting at Windsor Regional since a report came out two weeks ago. That report was designed to investigate how a mix-up like this could have happened.
Lena Walsh’s mother died of cancer within a few days of the mistake being discovered. She says she can’t stop thinking about the connection.
"It was a bit of a shock. We were just trying to grasp the understanding of what had gone wrong with the chemo, and then a couple days later, she had passed. So we were, of course, wondering if one was related to the other," said Walsh. "When we hear more reports, it obviously sparks more thoughts."
The Windsor native says she will attend the session but is uncertain what new information will be introduced.
"I think they're just trying to clear the air and show that Windsor Regional's obviously taken steps to alleviate the problem now, but I don't think it's going to solve much more than what we've already heard," Walsh said.
Walsh says she still wants to know if anyone is at fault for what happened.
"To me it looks like they are saying sorry for something yet they are not really admitting to making a huge error that has affected many families," she said.
