Mr. Speaker, it is our understanding from discussions with people inside Eastern Health that the wireless patient monitoring machines being used at the Health Sciences Centre were removed from two places in Quebec and are not used elsewhere in the country.


NDP Leader and Health Critic Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) today continued her call for the provincial government to deal with the “extremely disturbing” wait lists that continue to plague the healthcare system in this province.


New Democrat MHA Gerry Rogers (St. John’s Centre) called Eastern Health’s decision to cut hours of frontline nursing and personal care employees “a cost-cutting measure that could affect patient care.” She is asking the Minister of Health and Community Services to get involved because of the potential impact on tertiary care.
