Alberta Health Services says there will be an independent review into why it took an ambulance 30 minutes to get to an 86-year-old Calgary woman who had been attacked by dogs.
Police and paramedics responded Sunday to the Capitol Hill
neighbourhood and found the injured woman who later died.
Mauro Chies, interim president of Alberta Health Services, says the review by someone outside the province will look into the calls to dispatch, ambulance response time and availability of ambulances
at the time.
It comes after Premier Jason Kenney said the 30-minute response for the ambulance was not adequate and that the health authority must determine what went wrong to make sure it never happens again.
