We have been told that Thursday noon, December 4/08, Lorraine Adolph was last seen leaving Building # 12, Alberta Hospital Edmonton, 17480 Fort Road, for a smoke. Who unlocked the doors for her to exit the locked unit? Were the certificates disregarded? A family member had begged the Stony Plain physician to not send her to the mental hospital.

Despite snow and cold, professional staff of the geriatric unit failed to notify police that she was missing. Two days later, North Division police officers put out a missing persons notice. One week later, December 11/08 @ 8:15AM, a police officer searched the north end of the Hospital property where a body was found. It was the body of Ms. Adolph.

Initially, the police had apparently been informed that the grounds had been searched by Alberta Hospital security.

Search or no search, if her body was on the grounds, why was her body not found days earlier? Patients and staff continually walk throughout the hospital grounds. Alberta Health announced it would launch an investigation in the matter.

The matter of the death of Lorraine Adolph cries out for a thorough police investigation. Professional staff have a duty of care to vulnerable persons whom they detain behind locked doors. The lady died. There appears to be strong evidence of criminal negligence on the part of a number of persons.

She died steps away from Alberta Hospital Building 12. When was Form 8 filled out?

” Physicians have a powerful quasi-judicial position in society in that they can detain lawful citizens behind locked doors and remove all property and human rights”.
