Ontario’s long-term care homes with bad track records should be fined, former inspector says

As COVID-19 swept through Ontario’s long-term care homes, a former provincial inspector said it was horrifying and infuriating to watch unfold, and the lack of enforcement, despite a bill to fine homes with bad track records, has led to deadly consequences during the pandemic.

Problems like overcrowding, resident neglect, and lack of infection prevention and control, all helped the novel coronavirus spread rapidly through Ontario nursing homes, leaving more than 3,700 people dead.

But they’re also issues that for years had been flagged in provincial inspection records in many of Ontario’s worst-hit homes, often with no changes or accountability.

“Inspectors knew this would be a problem someday and it happened,” said a former long-term care inspector, whose identity Global News is protecting as the person still works in the sector.

Carolyn Jarvis reports.
