The death of the Jehovah’s witness Eloise Dupuis: her husband will have access to the medical record

Paul-André Roy, the husband of Eloise Dupuis, was successful in the superior Court. The tribunal has reversed the decision of the CIUSSS Chaudière-Appalaches, who refused the husband access to the medical file of the Jehovah’s Witness. The Hôtel Dieu de Lévis has 14 days to send the case file covering the period from 5 to October 12, 2016.

Eloise Dupuis died on October 12, 2016, six days after his entrance to the hospital to give birth to her first child. Following a caesarean section, Eloise Dupuis has had to remove the uterus because of too great loss of blood.

Paul-André Roy had filed an application instituting proceedings in the superior Court in may last, calling at the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis to give him access to the medical file of his wife. The hospital of the South Shore (Quebec) had previously refused the request of the man. It is a counsel of Jehovah’s witnesses, Me Sylvain Deschênes, who represented the Paul-André Roy before the Tribunal and who had signed this petition.
