A detainee who had had a motorcycle accident prior to his incarceration was refused access to a medical assessment requested by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ).
When the man arrived at the detention facility in April, he specifically told them that he had a medical appointment with an external physician in July. However, the authorities refused to bring him to the appointment. The man never received an answer after having repeatedly asked when another appointment would be made with his physician.
The detention facility agreed to act on the Québec Ombudsman’s request. An appointment was scheduled the month following the Québec Ombudsman’s intervention.
