Quebec coroner says delay in arriving at hospital was likely factor in baby’s death

MONTREAL-Quebec coroner urges state to reduce time it takes to transport remote patients to hospital after a 7-month-old baby in a northern indigenous community died after awaiting treatment .

Niteïyah Chilton died in April of bacterial meningitis after taking an ambulance to the nearest hospital for more than five and a half hours and to a specialized center in Montreal for more than eight and a half hours.

A nurse in the community of Manawan, about 250 kilometers north of Montreal, called 911 on the evening of April 2 as her baby was suffering from seizures and breathing problems.

Local ambulance services were already overwhelmed and the family had to wait over an hour and 45 minutes for an ambulance to arrive from another area.

Coroner Géhane Kamel wrote in the report that delays in access to treatment most likely affected the child’s chances of survival.

Kammel recommends that states review their emergency pre-hospital services systems and consider providing helicopter evacuation for critically ill patients in remote areas.

This report by the Canadian Press was first published on November 8, 2022.
