Ep 120: Steve Burrows on Saving His Mother

Steve Burrows, filmmaker and comedian, speaks about the making of his HBO documentary “Bleed Out”, the story of his mom, who went in for a routine hip replacement surgery and came out with permanent brain damage after a week long coma that changed her life forever. Steve’s painful journey chronicles 10 years of investigating the multiple failures in the health care system that led to his mother’s demise, and ultimately, who was to blame. While his story is complicated and heart wrenching, it’s also a compelling reminder about how to navigate and advocate for a patient’s care in order to avoid failures that can impact lives forever.
