It hasn’t taken the Ombudsman long to respond to an NDP request to look into how enforcement orders are carried out at long-term care homes. The party’s health critic, France Gelinas, asked for the investigation last month and the Ombudsman has agreed to carry one out. Gelinas, who is also the MPP for Nickel Belt, is pleased to say the least. Gelinas says the Ombudsman will look into enforcement orders the Ministry of Health issues to long-term care facilities. But in addition, the office will also examine if the ministry does follow-up work to ensure the care facilities carry out its orders.
