B.C. Children's Hospital responds to criticism
Two Okanagan children needed spinal surgeries from B.C. Children's Hospital.
But according to the Patient Care Quality Review Board, both the hospital and the Provincial Health Services Authority failed Walid Khalfallah and George Webb.
Both boys ended up at Shriners hospitals in the U.S.
George had a favourable outcome while Walid had complications and is now a paraplegic.
The Patient Care Quality Review Board investigated both cases.
The recommendations it made in 2009 in Geroge's case, mirror the later report on Whalid's treatment.
