Ottawa paramedics in pilot project to 'divert' homeless patients to Shepherds of Good Hope

from CTV News

Ottawa paramedics have started a new process that will enable them to take vulnerable homeless patients directly to the Shepherds of Good Hope instead of the hospital. It's the first of its kind in Ontario and is expected to save the health care system millions of dollars. When paramedics get a call about a homeless person drunk or high on drugs, they have been required to take that person to the hospital and wait with them, hours sometimes, until they are "off-loaded." more
