ETHICS AND MISSION COMMITTEE
In the palliative care report, it is noted that Palliative Care Rooms on Complex Continuing Care (CCC) are being prioritized for patients receiving palliative care rather than rehabilitation when possible.
A question was raised regarding palliative care rooms and how often it happens that CCC is full and the palliative care rooms are being used by rehabilitation patients. It was explained that the surge season is 01 October 2023 to 31 March 2023. CCC has a high turnover rate, often 2-3 admissions/discharges per week. Thankfully, this allows us to transfer patients to different rooms if a palliative patient would be admitted.
