On July 30th, 2020, my wife suffered a stroke. I called 911 and the ambulance came and took her to the clinic. We waited around for a long time, but there was not a doctor on call to come and see her. She could have received the clot-busting shot then if there was a doctor on call. The nurse then sends us on our way to McBride where we see the same result”¦ no doctor on call to see her and give her a shot. Then they send us on our way to Prince George. There was a lot of confusion over who was going to take her in which ambulance. Bickering about it for some time, all the while the clock was ticking. By the time we got to Prince George, the window to receive the clot-busting shot was closed. It was too dangerous by then to give it to her.
What kind of system do we have in this town that could let that happen??
Where were the doctors on call??
Did they even get called??
Did they not respond to call??
I would like answers”¦ my wife would like answers”¦ we deserve answers!!
