On April 11, 2022, The Fixing Long-Term Care Act, 2021 (FLTCA) was
proclaimed into force to regulate Ontario's long-term care home
The Act required Labdara's Care Team to develop procedures in key
areas such as:
Enhancing emergency planning requirements to support greater sector preparedness in the event of an emergency, including outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics.
Providing a definition "caregiver" and to develop a visitor policy that respects the Residents' Bill of Rights and ensures that caregivers continue to have access to long-term care homes during an outbreak.
There are three new policies (attached below) to respond to the Act:
Emergency preparedness plan
These policies are to enhance/protect our residents' lifestyle and to ensure
families understand visiting policies and the precautions taken
both in the area of pandemics and facilities.
