Ontario Long Term Care Association statement in response to the launch of a public inquiry focused on long-term care

Toronto - August 1, 2017 - This morning, the Ontario government announced the details of the public inquiry into the actions of former nurse Elizabeth Wettlaufer. 

The Ontario Long Term Care Association is supportive of the government's effort to determine what steps we can take to ensure that something like this never happens again. Residents and their families need to feel comfortable with the care that they receive, and Ontarians need to have confidence that that our system will be there to meet their needs when and where they need it.
