Seniors in privately run care homes are far more likely to die in hospital than those who live in facilities run by public health authorities and you are 32% more likely to be sent to a hospital emergency department.

In response to a high level of interest in the Office of the Seniors Advocate’s latest report From Residential Care to Hospital: A Pattern Emerges, Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie delivered a presentation to interested stakeholders, media, and members of the public. This presentation was conducted jointly with Dr. Jeff Poss and Dr. Kim McGrail–the two lead researchers behind the report–and provided a deeper dive into the statistical methodology and data sources used. It was followed by a one hour Q&A session.
