Downtown Vancouver ER is ground zero of opioid overdose crisis
“Somebody's overdosing in the bathroom!” Geri Platko, 62, yells from a public washroom in St. Paul's Hospital.
Security comes running to alert Tanya Campbell, the nurse in charge of triage on what will be a busy night.
“Is it actually an overdose?” Campbell asks as she quickly pushes an empty gurney down the hall.
