Snap inspections reveal issues at long-term care facilities

The province ramped up inspections in 2013, doubling the inspection staff and promising every long term care home in Ontario will receive a comprehensive inspection annually.  With 49 residents in care, a Complaint Inspection conducted in December found the facility was chronically understaffed, says a report posted by the ministry.
The inspection found at times only three Personal Support Workers (PSWs) were on staff over the evening shift, one of which was on modified duties and unable to lift — leaving two PSWs to transfer, toilet and put all residents to bed.
