The Ontario Health Coalition expressed its deep frustration at today’s reports quoting Health Minister Deb Matthews who said that Ontario’s long-term care homes will not be subject to annual inspections; a reversal of long-standing promises by her government. The Minister’s comments were made yesterday in response to the revelation by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union that long-term care inspectors are overwhelmed, and inspections may be delayed more than five years.
