It’s time to choose, according to a doctor


“It’s difficult every day. We rarely have a day when things go well. For Dr. Bernard Mathieu, who works in the emergency room at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, there is only one solution to the crisis that is shaking emergency rooms across Quebec: reduce the supply and demand.

He emphasizes that this is a chronic crisis, not a one-off. To solve it, he believes that it is necessary not only to close emergency rooms, but also to ask the population not to go to the hospital for certain minor problems.

Bernard Mathieu goes so far as to mention the reduction of certain treatments.

Should we continue to provide advanced care to people who are no longer aware of what is going on around them? It still has a big impact on the health network, end-of-life care. »
