accomplishes nothing. No wonder mcliar has been hiding this report. dalton needs to go !!
Ontario has the dubious distinction of having the worst hospital bottlenecks of any province, says a much-anticipated report prepared for the government.
More than 4,500 seniors are stuck in hospital beds even though they are in need of “alternate levels of care,” such as intensive home care, said Dr. David Walker, former dean of health sciences at Queen’s University and the report’s lead author.
The findings echo a Star investigation last winter.
The report was turned in on June 30 but was quietly posted on the health ministry’s website two months later, on the eve of the current election. Opposition critics Thursday accused the government of hiding its findings.
According to the report, the health of too many Ontario seniors is needlessly deteriorating in a system that relies too much on hospitals and not enough on community care, just as the Star’s Begging for Care series detailed last February.
