Well let me tell you... Didn't I have a thread where I was posting from the hospital while waiting for SIX hours + after I got hit by a wood plank in the head?
How about the thread I started about the IT kid at my work that died after a car accident while WAITING FOR HOURS in the emergency room? He bleed internally to death and no one cared.
Does Canada even have a brain surgery center ?

A "brain surgery center" is not needed to drain an epidural hematoma. This is within the scope of any Level 1 trauma center.

They were doing their job. The fact that she declined to go to them for treatment has nothing to do with them. They are not in this tragic little loop. Closest would be the first responders who didn't get a chance to do an evaluation.

But, as posted by others, it remained HER call, dumb as it was. I personally think the resort should have required evaluation but that was not done.

I've ski patrolled for many years and was the regional FA instructor in those same Laurentian mountains in many smaller centers.
If the instructor knew who she was, I suspect that Natasha would have received extra attention as a celebrity.

I don't have all of the details around this. Did she ski down to the Lodge after the fall?
If there was any doubt, the instructor would have called for the patrol and the patrol would have called for a sled.
Let's hope that more accurate facts are given out.
Apparently she was toboggened down to the lodge and got up, chatted and went in. The instructor stayed with her due to concern and apparently tried to talk her into going to ER. That didn't work. My guess is she felt tired, had a mild headache and went to sleep. And that was that.
