RNAO to have a say in Wettlaufer inquiry

On Jan. 18, RNAO was granted standing in the Long-Term Care Homes Public Inquiry, which will examine the circumstances surrounding the murders of eight nursing home residents by former RN Elizabeth Wettlaufer.

With standing at the inquiry, RNAO will be able to present evidence and call witnesses. RNAO’s focus will be in two aspects of the inquiry: to leave no stone unturned regarding if anything could have been done to prevent the tragic killings of eight nursing home residents at the hands of Wettlaufer, and to highlight the day-to-day staffing shortfalls and archaic funding model in long-term care.

For more information, please read our media release or see the Ottawa Citizen article with RNAO CEO Doris Grinspun quoted.
