LONG TERM CARE FACILITIES
The Ontario Health Coalition recently released a new report, Situation Critical.
After reviewing government data, Situation Critical reveals a shocking state of long-term care in Ontario.The data collected reveals long wait lists, inequities, staffing shortages, and medical needs. Shockingly, it also shows that over the last 5 years measured, there were 27 homicides in long term care facilities. It is part of a rising tide of violence among residents of long-term care facilities. The report bases its assessment of the current state of long-term care in Ontario, and recommendations for the future, on available data from the long-term care industry and the Ontario government.
