THE MEDICAL RECORD: ONTARIO PATIENTS OMBUDSMAN REPORT
Jane Brown is filling in for Libby Znaimer today. She is joined by Dr. Malcolm Moore, a medical oncologist at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Dr. Fahad Razak, an internist and epidemiologist at Unity Health Toronto, Dr. Alisa Naiman, a family physician and founder and medical director of The Medical Station in Toronto.
This upcoming Saturday will be the three year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our panel reflects on how far we’ve come. Meanwhile, a new report by the province’s patient ombudsman reveals that many patient complaints are driven by inadequate staffing at long-term care homes and hospitals. Also, as we reported earlier this week, NACI is recommending that Canadians who have a high risk of serious illness should get their bivalent COVID-19 booster shot in the Spring. Finally, numerous NDP MPPS are calling on the Ford government to give clarification on a partnership that an Ottawa hospital has with a private corporation that is leasing their operating and recovering rooms on Saturdays. Our panel has the latest.
