Pri­or­i­ties set for Users and Res­i­dents Com­mit­tees

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

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.
