At City Council’s Community Services Committee last Thursday, Diane Deans, chairwoman of community & protective services (Social Services) which oversees nursing homes stated ‘it is not right to compare the hours of care a city-run nursing home gives with the hours given in a private nursing home’. She also suggested the city is not doing too badly.
Dean Lett, deputy to Janice Burelle & in charge of nursing homes, finally had to correct her as Deans was comparing nursing homes and retirement homes.
Deans is the Chair, an experienced councilor, and had over 2 months to review the material.
Does such a lack of knowledge indicate an inability to understand the basics, a lack of interest, laziness or all of the foregoing.
Seems it afflicts far too many of our councilors!
