    Mice eat lady's face ...

    LETHBRIDGE, Alta. -- A health-care advocacy group says a dementia patient at a long-term care home in southern Alberta is recovering after a staff member found mice nibbling at her face.

    Friends of Medicare says it happened at St. Therese Villa in Lethbridge on Sept. 1.

    "We found out that last Sunday ... one of the staff of that facility walked into this resident's room and found mice nibbling on her face," said Sandra Azocar, executive director of Friends of Medicare.

    "The lady was in fact bitten and now she's been medically treated for that ... I'm completely horrified. I think it's beyond words. I can't imagine being that lady who had this happen to her."

    The woman also has disabilities and would not have been able to move the mice off her face, Azocar said.

    Rats? That sounds rather dramatic. A mouse bit a woman's face. She is disabled and has dementia. Senior's facilities are scary places.

    Isn't Alberta rat free? You wouldn't want to mislead anyone and have them believe that there are rats in Alberta.

    the thread title is quite misleading...

    Oh, oh ... looks like another group with an agenda.

    "Inspection teams from Alberta Health Services and Covenant Health are in Lethbridge investigating the conditions at St. Therese Villa. Dumelie says while a mouse was spotted in the room, there is no evidence that it [mouse] was near the patient.

    He says a medical examination of the patient shows no evidence of animal bites. He says the patient may instead have a viral condition."

    you are correct, otto:

    “Alberta is the only province with rat-free status and we take this very seriously. We have lived without the menace of rats since 1950 when our control program began,” said Verlyn Olson, Minister of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development.
