Doctor’s Errors Won’t Affect Northerners

The Mamawetan Churchill River Health Authority has finished reviewing the work of a discredited doctor.


Dr. Darius Tsatsi reviewed test results on 38 patients from the North in the summer of 2004.


Since that time, questions have been raised over the accuracy of his work prompting a review.


Officials with Mamawetan says of the 42 ultrasounds and one x-ray Tsatsi read, a difference of interpretation was found in three of them.


However, the region’s chief medical health officer, Dr. James Irvine, says none of the differences are expected to have an impact on affected patients’ clinical management.
