Parliament recesses for Easter OTTAWA (CP) Members of Parliament are off on a two- week holiday, but few are like- ly to relax. Amid speculation (.bat a general election is im- minent, most headed home to patch up political fences in their constituencies. Jumping about election ru- mors has been a feature of the fourth session of the 28th Par- liament since it opened Feb. 17. Notable in the opening couple of weeks was the intensity of opposition efforts to spotlight an issue that would embarrass the Liberal government in the eyes of the voters. By Wednesday 30 sitting days after the session election talk was still promi- nent, although some of the ear- lier eaginess was missing. The more relaxed mood Wednesday may have been generated by the pre-holiday atmosphere, perhaps by the Eirst firm indication of spring after the long Ottawa winter.

Doctor errored in Seguin death OTTAWA (CP) A coroner's ory said Wednesday night that lie College of Physicians and >urgeons and the Ontario Hospi- al Medical Services Cominis- ion should hold Iheir own in- 'csligations in the death of Den- se Seguin. Mrs. Seguin, 32, of Hull, Quo., icd last December, about even months after she under- went nn intestinal bypass opera- ion to reduce her weight. After deliberating eight hours, he jury said Mrs. Seguin's cath resulted from "numerous -duplications which developed as a result of the original by- lass surgery on May 20, 1971." Cause of death was bronchial aneumoma due to liver and kid- ley failure, said the jury. It said Dr. Jean-Paul Drouin xunmttted "a gross teclmical as the result of an mproper placement of clamps" in the first operation. A second operation was re- quired nine days Ipter to correct he error. DIED Tlie inquest was called after iva Ottawa-area persons died ollowing bypass operations de- signed to reduce weight in obese >ersons. Dr. Drouin, who performed 59 such operations successfully, made Uie same error in his next h r e e vrong sections of the small in- .estine. The doctor told the jury last week the errors were not the di- rect cause of death. The jury was critical of some practices at Ottawa's Montfort hospital where the operations ivere performed. It found fault with incomplete said the hospilat should spell out what operations each stir- geon is allowed to perform. It said (here was no excuse for hospitals misplacing reports id charts such as had oc- curred at Mont fort in the Seguin case. FII-12S INCOMPLETE Heart and liver tests ordered by Dr. Drouin on Mrs. Seguin were net found in tier file. The jury also said Mrs. Se- guin was allowed to leave tho liospital too soon after her oper- ation. Evidence was that she in- sisted on leaving five days after her first operation for personal reasons. In Ihis way she may have contributed to her own death, said the jury. In sucti circumstances, the patient should sign her own re- lease on a form which lists the objections of Uie doctor to tha discharge, said tiie jury. Ttie jury said "it is obvious lhat was a lack of team effort in assessment of (he patient's suitability for the bypass opera- notes kept by tlie nurses and 1 estate. Big settlement HOUSTON, Tex.
