According to a recent report a trial date has been set for a wrongful death lawsuit that was filed against Pictou County Health Authority, Aberdeen Hospital, and a doctor. The trial date has been set for September 2009. The lawsuit was filed by Lillian Moore over the care received by her husband, John, in 2003.

The lawsuit claims that the care that John Moore received when in hospital in 2003 was below standard, and this lack of care resulted in the man’s death. The complaints states that Mr Moore went into cardiac arrest on New Year’s Eve 2003, and was not administered proper treatment.

As part of the lawsuit Lillian Moore is seeking damages, as well as compensation for her husband’s projected future earnings. Three weeks has been allocated for the trial in 2009.

Mrs Moore stated: “I’m very glad to have a date set. I’ve been fighting this for so long and I will keep persevering. I have to do this for John.” The lawsuit also accuses one doctor, Dr. Spiro Photopoulis, of negligence.
