Dana Blum seeks to hold accountable those involved in the wrongful death of her 14 year old son.
Blum hopes that the charges she brings against a Draper youth care facility will bring about changes. McConkie said, “Facilities that care for children need to be properly trained on life saving protocols in order to get children the medical attention they need if a health issue should arise.”
An autopsy showed Brendan died of an obstructed bowel that investigators say would have not been deadly if he had received medical care.
McConkie said, “With emergency medical attention just a phone call away, this death was preventable and senseless.”
