Death of Indigenous woman who left ER without being treated leads to changes at MUHC

The McGill University Health Centre has changed its admitting policies following an internal investigation into why an Indigenous woman whose health insurance card had been stolen left the hospital after being informed she'd have to pay to see a doctor.

Kimberly Gloade, 44, walked out of the emergency room without having been seen in February 2016. She died at home a month later from cirrhosis of the liver.
