Michele Young reports:

His 80-year-old mother’s medical records were left on a City bus and Darrel Davy isn’t satisfied with Interior Health’s explanation.

Davy said Thursday his mother was admitted to Royal Inland Hospital on May 23 and released three days later.

She’s feeling better, but he’s been upset since she got a registered letter from Interior Health on Tuesday saying a record containing some of her health information was accidentally left on a City bus on May 25.
