Tackling hospital bed gridlock
We've been hearing a lot lately about patients stuck in the emergency department in Thunder Bay, waiting to be admitted to a hospital bed. That's partly because they can't get the care they need in the community. Today the region's Local Health Integration Network announced how it's going to divvy up a pot of government money to combat the problem. It's giving almost 2.5-million-dollars to the North West Community Care Access Centre. Tuija Puiras is the centre's chief executive officer.
