Have we reached the point where we need despanchantes to make sure the health care system doesn't kill us before it cures us?
The Winnipeg health care system seems to keep losing track of people who try to tackle it alone.
We have now found out about three cases where patients have died because the system wasn't paying attention to them -- first the Sinclair case, and now two elderly patients who were dumped into cabs and send home alone to freeze to death on their doorsteps.
The moral of the story in all three cases seems to be -- don't try to deal with the health care system alone anymore. When you go to a hospital these days, you need to take someone with you who's got your back.
