Hallway Medicine: Do we really need more hospital beds?
The Ontario government announced recently that it will spend $100-million to add almost 2,000 temporary beds to deal with Ontario’s so-called overcrowding crisis.
Between now and March 31, the money will be spent opening a couple of shuttered hospitals, and sprinkling money around the province to open hospital beds (1,200 in total), as well as 500 “transitional care” beds and 200 supportive housing units.
On the surface, this seems sensible: If you have patients waiting for beds, then add more beds and, poof, the problem disappears.
