Re: Ontario to outsource some procedures to specialised clinics

said by Gone:

It's not a guarantee, but it can help so long as you have competent people running the facility. Unfortunately as your example shows that is not always the case.

It's a shame. A nice new facility but underfunded from the start then they bring in a hatchet man to turn around the faux deficit and the place goes to shit.

Same thing happened in Niagara, except the backlash was so intense that the government turfed the CEO only to appoint the CEO of St. Joe's in Hamilton as "interim supervisor" which became permanent supervisor a few months ago.

How that man can realistically run two of the largest health systems in the entire country is beyond me.

don't worry...mismanagement isn't exclusive to your regions...plenty of it here too.

Sounds like Peterborough and Sudbury have a lot in common...we waited 10+ years and stopped construction just short of the goal due to deficits and whatnot....we have a "new" tower...along with the old towers...and no parking...and have more problems than ever...

I don't know if this would be better, I know some oral surgeries are done in surgeon's offices and they are covered by OHIP....
Things like wisdom teeth removal I think are covered by OHIP?...If they're medically neccessary of course...

But anywho...nothing beats our former CEO, look up "Vicki Kaminski"...now there's a laugh, talk about taxpayers picking up the whole cost of her MBA?....

Unfortunately she's Eastern Health in NF's problem now ....

I maintain that you're going to get incompetence regardless of who is at the helm...and there will be money gouging...even at hospitals....

I would say for infection control, provided everything is sterilized things should be better....

I won't be more scared than I was in 1999, had Jaw Surgery at Toronto Western Hospital I believe....had the surgery Wednesday morning and was discharged Friday morning because he said "there are sick people here"....and the man next door to me in my semi-private room was coughing up blood and it was on his stuff, and on the floor....it was everywhere....

...I figure if its a clinic at least you can't have people stuffed in there like sardines....for routine stuff anyways...I'm not against it...so long as there is some accountability and health inspectors are in regularly to check the facilities (surprise/weekly inspections, etc).
