Ontario’s hospital crisis won’t be easy to fix
There are no simple remedies for the long-term problems of long-term care. And no painless prescriptions for the short-term crisis in acute care hospitals, Martin Regg Cohn writes.
We have little faith hospitals will remain not-for-profit for long if Ford gets his way.
There are no simple remedies, indeed - but that isn't what will stop Ford from trying the same old, simplistic, discredited idea of privatization.
All that will stop him is a united public. https://t.co/6r30LQbXXp
Nobody said there were but, putting seniors on ice floes is dead wrong. For profit long term care homes is wrong too. These are people who paid into this system their entire lives. When they need the most care they are shoved out. WRONG.
Pick your poison? So do when we do get older (speaking as someone who has her grandmother in an LTC), do we expect the same treatment from our children? It’s okay to override consent because they’re elderly? Is that it?
No simple solution, perhaps. That shouldn’t stop us from taking steps we know will help. Hire more nurses and PSW’s and pay them in the public sector what they would get in the private. #HireMoreHCW #KillBill124
