Priorities set for Users and Residents Committees
On September 23rd, a group of 73 members representing the Users and Residents committees on the territory of the CIUSSS de l’Estrie – CHUS got together for a first meeting since the adoption of Bill 10. Three common priorities were found: the quality of living conditions and nutrition in CHSLDs (long-term care facilities); emergency wait times; and the accessibility of care and services.
“It is primordial to unite people coming from all over to identify the files that we will work on in the coming year. The reality is so different form one place to another. The volunteers of the users and residents committees are present and listening in their own communities. They are the best placed to tell us what is really happening in different installations,” commented Normand Bernier, the president of the CUCI.
Members of the Users and Residents Committees all over the Estrie had their first meeting together since the adoption of Bill 10 on September 23rd.
