Improving ER wait times.
Submitted by:

Generally, Outpatients should be brought back, which would hopefully divert minor cases from ER.
On Cape Breton Island, there are 3 hospitals, a large newer one ( which has had sanitary problems, including rat infestations and viral outbreaks ) , and 2 smaller older ones. The smaller ones are often shut down for weekends and 3-4 day periods, which leads to overcrowding at the main hospital. Many hospital beds have seniors awaiting placement in long term facilities.
