Black Boxes in Surgery Rooms
Sun Media St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto has tried a pilot project to allow black box-type technology in the operating room.  There are good and bad points to this project, but overall I think it is a good measure.   While I do not love the idea of invading the privacy of surgeons while doing their work…

Care and Control
Sun Media The tragic passing of Prashant Tiwari late last month while in the care of Brampton Civic Hospital is heartbreaking for friends and family.

Trauma Season
Sun Media Yes now in the somewhat summer months is trauma season. If you do not believe me pass by Sunnybrook. The hospital has a sign out that warns people not to end up on their stretchers. Surprised? Thought the winter was bad? Most people do. I think as Canadians we learn to drive in…

Confessions of an Ambulance Chaser
Sun Media I guess being a personal injury lawyer, I am de facto an ambulance chaser. I’m still not sure why there is such animosity toward personal injury lawyers.

School Safety
Sun Media In light of Diamond and Diamond’s press conference this week on the York University shooting, I thought we should discuss the basis for the lawsuit.
