Ottawa Facing Longer Medical Wait Times

OTTAWA INJURY LAWYER – Worrisome news for Ottawans… The head of the provincial wait time committee says Ottawa is lagging behind in the improvement of wait times for medical services. Significantly, the areas’ medical facilities did not meet their wait time targets for certain services like MRIs and knee replacements.

In another article earlier in the week, the Ottawa Hospital was proposing to free up beds by having elderly patients transfered to home care. Sounds like squeezing the balloon to us. There may be a few more hospital beds if they elderly are kept home but the publicly-funded home care capacity of the Community Care Access Centres is also strapped, chronically underfunded and struggling to meet demand.
