"In 2009, Burrows’ mother, Judie, went into the hospital in Milwaukee for what should have been a routine hip replacement. But something went wrong. She lost half of her blood supply on the operating table, went into a weeks-long coma and emerged with brain damage and long-term disability issues.

Burrows and his family filed a medical malpractice suit against the doctors. The documentary “Bleed Out” follows his decade-long quest to seek answers, and justice, for what happened to his mother. What he found was a health care system averse to accountability, and a legal system designed to protect doctors and hospitals at the expense of patients."
