Long-Term Care: 3.5 Hours Standard of Care
Petition Background (Preamble):
Without reinforcing the minimum standard of care, CUPE found that residents in Ontario’s long-term care facilities are:
sitting in soiled diapers
not being fed 10% of the time due to shortage of staff
do not get exercise (including walking) more than 50% of the time
do not receive emotional support 60% of the time
are being wakened up at 4:45 a.m. to get ready for breakfast at 8:00 a.m.
are being put to bed at 7:00 p.m. to get ready for bed.
In providing your signature, you are supporting the 3.5 standard of care to improve the quality of care, safety and staffing in long-term care facilities.
