Pallister flags drop-offs at ERs
from Winnipeg Free Press
Paramedics continue to incur long waits when dropping off patients at city hospitals, the provincial Opposition says. According to statistics obtained by the Manitoba Progressive Conservatives, the average ambulance drop-off time last year in Winnipeg was 75.6 minutes, up slightly from 74.6 minutes in 2012. The longer waits occurred despite several government initiatives to take the strain off hospital emergency rooms by steering non-emergency patients to other forms of care.
