Opinion: Kudos to Quebec for vowing action on wait times
from Glboe and Mail
End the disgraceful wait times in the emergency room or be fired. That's the latest threat from Gaétan Barrette, Quebec's tough-talking Health and Social Services Minister. Under proposed legislation, if patients are kept on stretchers in the emergency department for more than 24 hours, managers and physicians of those hospitals would face sanctions, up to and including losing their jobs. Of course, administrators and physicians alike are outraged.
