Police find dead bodies, feces and unfed seniors at Quebec seniors' residence
In Dorval, a privately run seniors' residence dealing with the current coronavirus outbreak has been compared with a "concentration camp" by health professionals. Reports of underfed and soiled residence were shared by the Montreal Gazette who investigated the facility.
The West Island has now seen 117 cases of coronavirus and more than 460 suspected cases in seniors' facilities.
Residence Herron was placed under trusteeship by the West Island health authority on March 29. So far, two people have died at the residence and 20 have been quarantined. There are currently 154 suspected coronavirus cases. Reasons have not been given for placing Herron under trusteeship. The residence charges seniors from $6,000 to $10,000 per month.
One resident at Herron checked herself in to St. Mary's Hospital two weeks ago to get tested for the virus after she was feeling unwell. The resident was able to return home that same day and her test results later came back positive.
