In December 2004 at the Jubilee Lodge Nursing Home,Edmonton, Jenny Nelson was placed in a bath chair
and slowly lowered into a tub of scalding hot water. She died

In December 2020, at the Cedars Villa Nursing Home, Calgary, on a cold wintry night, windchill -22,
a 91 year old dementia patient from a locked unit was found outside the building in the snow. She died.

Is there a parallel here?
