The triage aide who met Brian Sinclair when he arrived at emergency admits a video shows him meeting the man, but he can't remember it.
Jordan Loechner testified today at an inquest that he was working on Sept. 18, 2008 when Sinclair was brought into the emergency department by a cab driver.
But under questioning and when shown a security video of him walking up to Sinclair - a double amputee who used a wheelchair - bending down and writing something down on a pad of paper, Loechner said he didn't remember it at all.
As well, while Loechner recalled a security guard asking him on Sept. 20 for a kidney-shaped bowl he doesn't remember the guard telling him "a male does not look good".
Sinclair, 45, died on Sept. 21, 2008 after waiting in the emergency waiting room for 34 hours.
The inquest looking into his death has heard Sinclair could have died up to seven hours before he was discovered.
Loechner said he recalled being questioned by WRHA officials in the days after Sinclair's death but he didn't recall anything about the meeting then either.
"I do not remember taking his name that day. I talked to many people.
"I had many 30-second conversations that day."
Loechner said he was never disciplined in the wake of Sinclair's death.
