Posted: May 2, 2018
The stories were shocking… and heartbreaking. Caller after caller on Ontario Today’s noon call-in show told CBC Ontario Today host Rita Celli and Ontario Health Coalition executive director Natalie Mehra about being left in broom closets, storage areas, a bathroom and hallways waiting for a hospital bed in overcrowded hospitals across Ontario. Family members told of their loved ones dying without the dignity and privacy of a hospital room. People talked about worries about hygiene and inadequate staffing.
