UNFAIR TREATMENT OF FRAIL ELDERLY
1. Frail elderly and others in need of long-term care beds have been pressured to move from hospital to a home not of their choosing (which include "interim", beds in facilities that don't meet LTC standards), OR pay $1000/day to remain safely in hospital.
2. Patients who succumbed to pressure and moved from hospital to wait elsewhere for a chosen bed, are never given opportunity to move to their chosen home.
