Koskie Minsky LLP has commenced a class action on behalf of residents of the Restigouche Hospital Centre, also known as the Provincial Hospital, against the Province of New Brunswick and the Vitalité Health Network. The claim alleges historic negligence in failing to prevent systemic abuses of residents and for providing substandard health care at the psychiatric hospital in Northern New Brunswick.
The lawsuit alleges that New Brunswick and Vitalité were negligent, violated patients’ rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and breached fiduciary duties through their operation, management, administration, supervision and control of the hospital. These failures resulted in serious and lasting harms to patients.
The plaintiffs bring this lawsuit on behalf of all persons who were alive as of May 24, 2017, and who resided at the hospital between January 1, 1954 and the present. The lawsuit seeks $500 million in total damages on behalf of the former residents.
