Have you or a family member been impacted by Bill 7?
Bill 7 (More Beds, Better Care Act) put in place rules that allow hospitals and government officials to compel hospital patients into accepting admissions to long-term care homes they do not wish to spend their final days in. If patients do not agree, they may be required to pay $400 a day for every day they remain in the hospital. The home a patient may be pressured to accept could be a great distance from their family and community, and/or be one with a record of patient neglect and poor care.
