Posters, Waiting for Care
We know the further north you are in Ontario, the sparser is the health care, and the further you have to go and the less likely you are to have access.
Up to 30% of patients with chronic illnesses are not seeing a doctor within 30 days after an emergency room visit — and that can de deadly.
Poorly integrated care, where patients fall through the cracks as they transition from the emergency room back to the community, and sometimes, back to the ER again, is a notable shortcoming of our healthcare system.
