Canadian Emergency Department physicians call on government to set standards of care for patients

From 680 News:

Emergency room doctors are calling on the federal and provincial governments to set standards for patient treatment, including the maximum travel time to an emergency department.

The Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians says Ontario is dealing with the problem in many hospitals by keeping emergency rooms open with the help of temporary doctors.

Other provinces have started staffing their emergency rooms overnight with nurses and paramedics.
