Release McGuinty Government Fails to Take Hospital Secrecy Off the Table – Amendment to Budget Bill Gives Hospitals Wide Berth to Hide Information

Posted: April 29, 2011

(April 29, 2011) Public interest and patient advocates are calling on Premier McGuinty to withdraw a controversial clause slipped into the Budget Bill that will enable hospitals to hide information from the public. Earlier this month, the McGuinty government included a clause – Schedule 15 – in the Budget Measures Bill (173) that would enable hospital CEOs to shield from public scrutiny any information about quality of care produced for or by a hospital committee. The government has pushed through the budget bill quickly, opting for only one day of public hearings last week, on the eve of a national holiday. A proposed amendment announced by the government provides no substantive change.
