Northern Quebec Module undergoing reorganisation
We've been looking at living and working conditions at the Northern Quebec Module this past week on Quebec AM. It's the housing facility used by Inuit patients coming south to Montreal for medical treatments. We have heard from residents battling with bed bugs and bad mattresses. We heard a representative of the employees union complain about lack of personnel, and a lack of equipment like lifts for assisting patients with mobility issues.
Earlier this week, we spoke to the executive director of the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services, Minnie Grey. She told us the bed bug problem had been dealt with and the mattresses had been changed.
Some questions still went unanswered about just what services employees at the Module are expected to provide. Celine Laforest, the head of the Northern Quebec Module, joined us to clear up that issue.
