Nursing home death triggers calls for inquest

The Canadian Press

Toronto – Two organizations that represent employees in nursing homes are calling for a coroner’s inquest into the death of a resident of a Toronto long-term care facility. The Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario say an inquest would bring awareness to some ongoing problems in Ontario’s long-term care system. “These are our mothers, fathers and grandparents. If you’re not outraged by these issues, you are not paying attention,” said Candace Rennick, CUPE Secretary-Treasurer.
