Home > Blog > Deadly neglect at Revera, Mckenzie Towne Centre, Calgary

– Violet MacDonald was a resident with dementia at the Centre.
She died in October, after being sent to hospital for Septicemia
{blood poisoning} caused by bedsores that had been
neglected for so long, her flesh had begun to blacken and decay.
This LTC is run by REVERA, a multi-national corporation
that together with Extendicare owns nearly half of the Long Term Care
sector in Alberta. It should be known that our tax dollars help provide
corporations, such as REVERA, with valuable infrastructure.
The death did not become public until two months later.

– Are Calgary Police Service investigating the deadly neglect?
-Has a Fatality Inquiry been scheduled to review the circumstances
which surrounded this death?
