The senors living there are certainly paying all their income except 150 dollars. This gives the home pretty close to 2000 per person. I seriously think they deserve better care and the proper amt of staff to tend to the residents. I think one bath a wk is unacceptable. The Health Care system is bring in enough from each resident to more than pay for their care.

None of this surprises me. Nursing staff at long-term care homes do the best with what they have, but there are many many gaps in the care provided. Eastern Health's "staffing levels" allow for the very basics to get done and just barely. It's time that the public see just how desperate things are in our senior homes.

'Operational Improvement Initiatives'. That's bureaucratize for ' cut to the bone '. What odds if there's enough salt in the patients' diets to knock down a horse or if patients go for weeks without a bath or if they're in bed for 16 hours. Eastern Health saved $22 million in the first 3 months of 2013 and Susan Sullivan refers to 'improvement plans' ? If things keep 'improving' at places like Hoyles Escasoni, they'll have to shut 'em all down.

In the LTC home that I live in we get two baths a week.This is the rule in Ontario.We have three PSW and one nurse for 29 residents on day shift and the same on evening shift .The night shift is different.
