Report: Ontario falling short on organ donations from deceased patients
from The Globe and Mail
Ontario hospitals are transplanting organs from only about half of the deceased patients who would be medically eligible to donate, according to a report that reveals for the first time how individual hospitals are contributing to the province's organ-donation rate. New figures released by Trillium Gift of Life Network, which co-ordinates deceased donations in the province, show that Ontario hospitals managed to "convert" 52 percent of potential donors into actual donors between April and December of last year, short of the provincewide goal of 63 percent.
