Eastern Health has completed  all but one recommendation of the report of the Cameron Inquiry which looked into testing errors related to treatment for breast cancer patients.

That's according to an independent report.

Some 17 recommendations are considered considered finite. Some 22 recommendations are ongoing.

Some 39 recommendations of 60 made by Justice Margaret Cameron applied to Eastern Health solely.

A monument to the patients and their families is being unveiled.

The review was done by Jane Helleur and Associates.

The consultant said work on 15 of the recommendations went above and beyond and described the transformation in lab medicine at Eastern Health as remarkable.

"We have acted, we have changed," CEO Vickie Kaminski said.

    Is there something wrong here.a mistake was made here just like a mistake was made with the Cougar accident,Ocean ranger another accident it goes on and on.What kind of closure is there when you erect a monument,are we going to put up monuments everywhere when there are mistakes made.I feel for these people just like I feel for other people who have lost a loved one.How many of us had lost a parent or a family member because of mistakes,I lost my father at 46 years old no monument would have brought any kind of closure,it takes time for your pain to heal.I like the rest of my family lived without our father for the last 30 years from the age of thirteen,and believe me there was no insurance times were hard,I think the money could be better spent then on a monument.
