REGINA - An RCMP professional responsibility unit is investigating a complaint after an Indigenous woman says she was tackled and hit by officers at a hospital in northern Saskatchewan.
Emily Kammermayer said she took her two-year-old son to the La Ronge Health Centre lastmonth in hopes of getting an X-ray done of his arm after he injured it about two weeks earlier.
She said she took him to the hospital on the advice of her mother, who is a nurse, and other nurse practitioners after it started to swell.
The 20-year-old member of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band said she brought him to the emergency department because the clinic was closed and the nearest centre was a two-and-a-half hour drive to Prince Albert.
Kammermayer said a doctor came into the examination room and, without assessing her son, told her the boy didn’t need to have an X-ray.
