From the CBC website. Saving her life cost her life savings.
Misunderstanding and miscommunication from the doctor gave the patient the wrong impression about treatment availability.
The responsibility falls on both the doctor and the patient to dot their I's and cross their T's.
Not the first thing that comes to mind when timely surgery and treatments are required. Understanding the system can save your life, and your life savings.
Keep well and keep informed.
