Statement from the Ontario Medical Association

TORONTO, April 8 /CNW/ - Ontario's doctors will be reviewing the proposed regulation changes announced today which would enable nurse practitioners to admit and discharge patients to and from hospital.  We look forward to providing input on this issue.   Our primary concern is to ensure that patient safety is protected and that patients are receiving the best care from the most appropriate health care professional.

We will continue to work with the government and our health care partners to ensure that every patient in Ontario has timely access to the health care services they need.

Mark MacLeod, MD
President, Ontario Medical Association
