Finally, Dr. Gabrielle Horne is speaking up about the hell Nova Scotia health care put her through. Her story is a warning to potential medical professionals thinking of working here as well as to Nova Scotians, about who to trust, and to those politicians who continue to shield the guilty.
This is an important read:
In the reader comments two writers wrote:
MG59 said, “In the interest of fairness, I would be curious to hear the other side of this story.
“I’m not saying that she is necessarily misrepresenting things, but anyone with life experience dealing with powerful people in high level organizations knows that there are two (or more) sides to these internal conflicts, and she seems to be alleging conspiracies and dark dealings among a large number of people.
“Count me a bit skeptical.”
AceMcFool added, “I guess I’ve been around too long to reaily (sic) believe in such one-sided perspectives, especially when so many people are involved.”
This article is Dr. Horne finally speaking after a decade of persecution and litigation in which that unheard ‘other side’ spent in excess of $10 million taxpayer dollars to try to silence her and protect the vanity and professional reputations of those who were in the wrong.
In Nova Scotia we reward resumes, not results.
While the original complainant may have been a male physician, the harm was carried out – and funds approved to do so – by women. Specifically, former CEO of the Capital District Health Authority, Chris Power, who is now CEO of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute. Power was in charge when the spurious accusations were made against Dr. Horne. Then, when the Nova Scotia Health Authority was formed, CEO Janet Knox, a long-time friend and colleague of Power, approved a multi-million appeal against the initial court ruling for Dr. Horne.
In the interest of public health, better health and fairness, the public needs to remember that the courts TWICE found in favour of Dr. Horne.
