Several reactions arose following the publication of an article and report by Radio-Canada journalist Laurie Trudel, who told the story of Anik Lavigne, a Mansfield resident whose baby passed away after complications at Pontiac Hospital in Shawville last September.
Anik Lavigne’s account of the circumstances surrounding the birth and her experiences at the hospital was widely shared via social media and treated by various media outlets.
Note that CBC has learned that the circumstances of the baby’s death are currently under investigation by the coroner. It is stated in the article that at the press conference held yesterday, the CISSS del’Outaouais described the situation as very unfortunate. According to Radio-Canada, the CISSS took three days to respond to the interview request.
