Reid Emery Update 

The body of 61-year-old Reid Emery was found January 2nd in a snowbank neara hospital a day after he discharged himself against the advice of hospital staff. The 73-page report says emery had been taking a combination of drugs with side effects that included clouded senses. Among the problems cited was a lack of evidence that physicians or nurses followed policies regarding the discharge of patients. Through a statement released today, hospital CEO Wayne Dodwell says the hospital has outlined many steps they’re taking to safeguard patients rights and safety. Dodwell says the hospital has completed an internal review of the case, but can’t comment further because the matter may wind up in court and because of patient confidentiality laws. Emery’s sister, Sally, says the family is happy to hear the hospital is taking steps to correct the deficiencies outlined in the report.
