Ont. health ministry data on hospital overcrowding riddled with errors

LONDON, Ont. — Ontario’s health ministry failed to correctly track which hospitals are most overcrowded, missing red flags and allowing patients to suffer, experts warn.

What the ministry claimed was a half-full hospital system in the Niagara region was instead one of Ontario’s most crowded, a mistake bureaucrats refused to admit until QMI Agency contacted the hospital network directly.
