Flawed forensic testing has no boundaries: Long term testing scandal in Canada

“Sick Kids” is the nom-de-plume of the hospital providing chemical testing of drug and hair evidence.

Somehow this report uses “clinical testing” as a substitute, rather than “forensic testing.” For years this hospital lab’s customers have been law enforcement related agencies. Souns rather “forensic” to me.

“We deeply regret that the practices in the Motherisk drug testing laboratory didn’t meet the high standard of excellence that we have here at Sick Kids, and we extend our sincere apologies to children, families and organizations who feel that they may have been impacted in some negative way,” Dr. Michael Apkon, CEO at the Hospital for Sick Children, told the Star.”
