THE inquest examining the death of a man in a busy emergency department waiting room will resume for a few days this week following a two-month break.
Two more nurses at the Health Sciences Centre, who were working when Brian Sinclair was sitting in his wheelchair in the waiting room, and a member of the public who tried to help him will testify, starting today.
Vilko Zbogar, one of the lawyers acting for Brian Sinclair's family, said they expect to submit arguments Wednesday to persuade provincial court Judge Tim Preston more witnesses should be called to testify at the inquest, which began in August.
After this week, the inquest will again be put on hold until late February, when it will again sit for two weeks.
Sinclair, 45, was pronounced dead on Sept. 21, 2008, after waiting 34 hours in the HSC emergency waiting room.
He had gone to the emergency department after a doctor who saw him at an outside clinic sent him there by cab with a note asking that he be treated for a blocked urinary catheter.
