Niagara region needs close to 2,000 more health care workers and over 200 more hospital beds: Report

A new report suggests that patient care will become more strained in Niagara hospitals unless the regional health care system receives a significant boost in staffing and hospital beds. 

The Hospital Crisis: No Capacity, No Plan, No End, released by CUPE’s Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU), suggests that hospitals across the province must increase staffing and capacity by 22 per cent each to meet patient needs–a target it says the provincial government is falling short of. 

The report says Niagara’s health care system needs to add 1,739 additional staff and 223 more beds over the next four years. The union says the province is not on track to meet those targets, stating that staffing and capacity across Ontario will grow by less than one per cent a year over the next four years.

“We are very concerned about the growing crisis in our public hospitals, which is deeply harmful for both workers and patients. Unfortunately, the government’s plan is completely inadequate to meet the needs of a growing and aging population,” said Michael Hurley, the president of OCHU/CUPE, in a statement.

“At this rate, we are heading towards a much deeper crisis.”

The union represents 40,000 hospital workers across the province. 

According to the report, Stats Canada data indicate that hospital staffing levels have only increased by 0.4 per cent since 2020. Staffing and bed shortages in Ontario hospitals were making headlines before the pandemic struck in 2020, with patients in busy hospitals reporting waiting hours–and even days–on stretchers in hallways. 

Staff shortages have been reported frequently over the past two years, with health-care workers often citing heavy workloads and frozen wages as reasons for leaving the profession. The staff shortage, which is impacting hospitals across the province, has led to more

Canadian health care: New report highlights priorities

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) has released a new report, which lays out the key areas that governments need to focus on in order to improve struggling health-care systems.

The report is the result of an agreement between the federal, provincial and territorial governments to investigate where they can improve health care can be improved in Canada.

Governments, with the exception of Quebec, agreed to work with CIHI to collect and share their health-care data. CIHI plans to share the results publicly every year, making this report the first of an annual series.

This first report, which focuses on giving a snapshot of the current landscape of Canadian health care, found that surgeries dropped by 13 per cent during the pandemic compared to pre-pandemic levels and that Canada is underutilizing the potential of electronic tools, with fewer than 40 per cent of Canadians reporting that they’ve accessed their health information online before.

“We know that there are gaps in Canada’s health-care systems, but there are also improvements happening every day,” Kathleen Morris, vice-president of research and analysis at CIHI, said in a press release.

“This report provides a look at challenges that exist around the country. Over the coming years, transparent public reporting using comparable data from modernized health systems will be an important aspect of the improvement effort. It’s an important step in working with all levels of government as they work to improve health services for Canadians.”

Although Canada’s universal health-care system has long been a source of national pride, the COVID-19 pandemic placed huge strain on the nation’s health-care services, causing issues that we are still grappling with today. Massive worker burnout has caused many to leave the profession, others are struggling without proper mental health supports, surgery

Surgery backlogs, staff shortages, no family doctor: New report highlights Canada’s health-care crisis

A new report highlights Canada’s major drop in surgeries during the early years of the pandemic, but those pains were felt unequally across the country’s patchwork provincial health-care systems — with the largest decrease in procedures seen in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The findings were released Wednesday by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), an independent organization which compiles and analyzes health system data.

The CIHI team found roughly 743,000 fewer surgeries were performed in Canada during the first 2½ years of the pandemic — a drop of about 13 per cent compared to 2019.

“It takes a long time to catch up when you have to cancel a large number of surgeries,” said Kathleen Morris, CIHI’s vice-president of research and analysis.

Despite the drop in surgeries, overtime hours in Canada’s public hospitals from 2020 to 2021 increased by 15 per cent over the previous year — a “stark example” of the pressure COVID-19 put on health-care workers, the CIHI report noted.

The findings also shone a spotlight on other health-care issues, including staff shortages and burnout, levels of access to personal health information, and the roughly one in 10 Canadians who say they don’t have a regular health-care provider.

The report is part of a sweeping effort to change how the country handles Canadians’ health data. The federal Liberals have offered the provinces and territories billions in new spending over the next decade to address the country’s health-care crisis and, in exchange, the regions must commit to improving how health data is collected and reported.

All provinces and territories have signed on, except Quebec, which did not provide any figures for CIHI’s new report — leaving out health information for a population of roughly 8.8 million.

Pandemic worsened stress on northern health care workers: Yukon University report

Health care workers were pushed to the brink during the pandemic, exacerbating existing problems that still persist, according to a new Yukon University study.

The paper, published this week, looks at the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic had on Yukon’s health care workers.

“The challenges of providing care in the north are compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, contributing to increased stress,” the authors concluded. Those challenges include recruitment and retention of health care professionals, limited resources and serving rural, isolated communities.

“We must build a more resilient health care system that can sustain our aging society.”

The study surveyed 141 health care workers in the territory last fall, asking them a number of questions about burnout caused by workload, loss of personal time and incapacity to care for patients.

Findings indicated little difference in burnout and fatigue between health care workers in Yukon’s urban and rural communities.

More than half of respondents reported feeling tired, worn-out and exhausted, both physically and emotionally. Over a quarter indicated they often feel they “can’t take it anymore.”

Nurses reported higher rates of burnout than doctors, though the majority of respondents from both camps said burnout and fatigue became worse in the pandemic. 

The report noted that other jurisdictions have seen a loss of health care workers due to worsening stress levels.

“In light of these findings, there is cause for concern that frontline [health care] workers in the Yukon, specifically nurses, may follow a similar trend,” the report states. 

“Seeing as the Yukon’s healthcare system is reliant on nurses, especially in those who work in rural communities, this is problematic as it could exacerbate a pre-existing staffing crisis, compromise patient care, and increase the workload for remaining staff.”

Health Sciences Centre ER had no monitored beds open when person died waiting for care: report

A patient who died waiting for care in a hallway at Winnipeg’s Health Sciences Centre was not transferred to a monitored bed due to lack of available space in the emergency department, according to a critical incident review into what could have prevented his death. 

That review, released on Friday, was conducted after a patient died at HSC’s emergency medical services arrivals hallway on Feb. 27, about an hour after arriving at the hospital by ambulance.

He was assessed upon arrival, but his condition deteriorated and staff were unable to revive him, the report says.

His death was declared a critical incident, which is defined by the province as a case where people have suffered “serious and unintended harm” while receiving health care.

The review found that “patient flow challenges” prevented the man from being put into a monitored bed, which is a bed with a heart monitor attached, noting that the hospital was dealing with twice its usual number of critically ill or injured patients at the time. 

This spike in admissions around the time the man arrived at the hospital exacerbated pre-existing challenges in the emergency department’s capacity, according to the report.

HSC — the largest hospital in Manitoba — has opened up six more medicine beds recently to help with overcrowding issues, and is planning to open up six more this summer depending on staffing, said Dr. Shawn Young, the chief operating officer at Health Sciences Centre, at a Friday morning news conference held to address the report.

The opening of a new treatment clinic for minor injuries this summer should also help people get more timely care, he said. 

Ideally, the hospital would open more ER beds, but staffing presents a challenge, he said.

“Would I love to open 30 beds? For sure, but would

HHS Releases Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans Midcourse Report: Implementation Strategies for Older Adults

Report will share evidence-based strategies for increasing physical activity among older adults

Today, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a report showcasing evidence-based interventions to support physical activity among adults ages 65 years and older.

By the year 2030, 1 in every 5 Americans will be age 65 or over. More than 85 percent of older adults currently have at least 1 chronic health condition. The growing population of older adults can gain substantial health benefits and prevent or manage chronic disease by engaging in physical activity.

The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans Midcourse Report: Implementation Strategies for Older Adults extends the work of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans and provides details on how to help older adults achieve the recommended 150 minutes or more of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening physical activity each week.

“The immediate and long-term health benefits of engaging in regular physical activity are well documented. This is why it is so important for all Americans, including older Americans, to stay physically active,” said HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. “The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to improving the health of all Americans, no matter their age.  This report will help us support older adults in living physically active lives.”

The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, which serves as the primary, authoritative voice of the federal government for evidence-based guidance on physical activity, fitness, and health for Americans, are reviewed by experts every five years to evaluate a specific topic of importance. This iteration focuses on adults ages 65 and older.

“The mindset that physical activity is an individual responsibility is shifting, and progress to ensuring all Americans have the opportunity to be physically active requires a united effort. Everyone has a role to play,” said Adm Rachel Levine, M.D.,

Ontario has $4.4-billion more for health care programs than required: report

Ontario’s fiscal watchdog says the provincial government has allocated $4.4-billion more than it needs to pay for health care programs over the next three years, a “significant change” from a previous estimate that said the province would be facing a $10-billion shortfall.

A new report released Wednesday from Ontario’s Financial Accountability Office found the government now has $4.4-billion in “excess funds” budgeted for its health care programs until 2026, although more than half of that money might be needed to pay back public-sector workers who are challenging the government’s wage-cap law.

A previous report in March said Ontario needs to spend $21.3-billion more on health care to meet its own expansion targets and will be short about 33,000 nurses and personal support workers by 2027-2028.

“That $4.4-billion is a significant change from the FAO’s previous estimate of a $10-billion funding shortfall over the same period,” said Jeffrey Novak, Ontario’s acting financial accountability officer.

The reason for the change, Mr. Novak said, is that Ontario added $15.2-billion to its spending plan in the 2023 budget, “which effectively covered the shortfall we had previously identified.” The new funding is targeted primarily toward expanding capacity in long-term care, home care and hospitals, the report said, as well as a plan to shift some surgeries to private clinics. It also includes almost $1-billion for Bill 124-related retroactive wage increases.

Total health sector spending is expected to rise from almost $80-billion in 2022-2023 to $87-billion in 2025-2026, the report said, bolstered by an increase to federal health transfers.

Federal transfers to Ontario are estimated

UNRWA Department of Health Annual Report 2022 – occupied Palestinian territory


UNRWA Health Programme Supports 2 million Palestine Refugees – Annual Health Report


Today, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) released its 2022 Annual Health Report. Main report findings include provision of 7.86 million health consultations to some 2 million Palestine Refugees across the Agency’s five fields of operation, namely Jordan, Lebanon, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, Gaza, and Syria and a rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases in 2022.

In 2022, the UNRWA health programme successfully combated a resurgence of cholera in the Palestine Refugee camps in Lebanon, brought about by the historic economic crisis there, in addition to the Omicron strain of COVID-19. Further, UNRWA health centres in Gaza and the occupied West Bank provided vital health care amid hostilities.

“We take great pride in announcing the release of the 2022 UNRWA Annual Health Report. The UNRWA Department of Health has made significant strides in revitalizing our services, drawing from the valuable lessons learned during the post-COVID era. Despite facing immense challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, cholera outbreak in Syria and Lebanon, regional turbulence and uncertainty, and the UNRWA financial crisis, we have remained unwavering in our commitment to support the health and well-being of Palestine Refugees,” said Dr. Akihiro Seita, UNRWA Director of Health.

The Agency’s focus on technology was evidenced by significant increased utilization rate for the Non-Communicable Diseases Mobile Application (e-NCD) and the Maternal and Child Health Mobile Application (e-MCH).

Another area of Agency priority is mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS). In 2022, screenings found that one out of five HC patients screened at UNRWA health centres required MHPSS follow up. Patients in Gaza had the highest detection rate at 26.4 per cent.
