Candice Evans says she didn’t want to risk a long wait for an ambulance to arrive from Île-à-la-Crosse
There’s playing nurse, and then there’s this.
A woman in northern Saskatchewan took matters into her own hands Wednesday when she drove her ill, IV-strapped husband to the hospital in Île-à-la-Crosse instead of waiting for an ambulance.
Candice Evans of Buffalo Narrows says her experience highlights the need for ambulance services within her community of 1,100 people and is calling on local leaders, including Mayor Bobby Woods, to meet with the Keewatin Yatthe Regional Health Authority about it.
