The family of a woman who was sent home from hospital and died from a brain bleed says Saskatchewan's health-care system is broken. Theresa Surbey (SIR'-bee) Blair says her parents were brought to a Saskatoon hospital's emergency department after a car accident in June 2014. She says her 84-year-old mother received poor care, and later suffered a brain bleed that would lead to her death three days after the accident. (Health Minister Dustin Duncan says there is a comprehensive review underway to look at the case.)
